I found out the solution of this problem, you should downgrade module-init-tools package to previous version and video modules in huge package will be loaded fine. (tested with intel modules, module-init-tools version 3.6) Don't forger run "depmod -a" after downgrade the package.

Well we're getting somewhere now... Oddly, libGL is looking in /usr/lib/dri and /usr/lib64/dri for the DRI drivers, rather than /usr/lib64/xorg/modules/dri, which is where it is actually located on Slackware 64. Which makes me think that the libGL might also be left over from fglrx. Can you reinstall Mesa? If, after reinstalling Mesa, libGL is still checking /usr/lib/dri and /usr/lib64/dri, can you try 'LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose LIBGL_DRIVERS_DIR=/usr/lib64/xorg/modules/dri/ glxinfo' and see what the output is then.

Can't really try it now... the computer I was having problems with is my station at work and I shut it down prior to leaving office today.

I'll be there real early in the morning - I'm at GMT+3. So around 8AM (my time) I'll be uninstalling Mesa. =)

thanks for the help so far! =)

Oh! Sorry

Why don't you all try compiling the kernel by your selves?

you might need to adjust your symlinks:

- /usr/src/linux

Do someone have the same problem?
The same problem.Do you get some method to solve it?

So ... after recompiling the 2.6.32.7 kernel and installing FGLRX I'm geting:

Code:
(II) LoadModule: "fglrx"
(II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/fglrx_drv.so
dlopen: /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/fglrx_drv.so: undefined symbol: UpdateSpriteForScreen
(EE) Failed to load /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/fglrx_drv.so
(II) UnloadModule: "fglrx"
(EE) Failed to load module "fglrx" (loader failed, 7)
(EE) No drivers available.

Fatal server error:
no screens found

Please consult the The X.Org Foundation support
         at http://wiki.x.org
 for help.
Please also check the log file at "/var/log/Xorg.0.log" for additional information.

Is -current using X server 1.7.*? fglrx will not work with that version yet. Hopefully this month or next month.

Or you can use the open source drivers (assuming you don't have an HD5xxx card).

I always recommend radeon over radeonhd, however either driver should work with 2D and 3D acceleration as long as fglrx is completely purged from your system. Check earlier on this page and the previous page where I gave suggestions to gtludwig.

My card is hd 4570.You are right. All that we could do is wait...

By moving xorg.conf, you can startx and kde without 3D effect..

Again, 2D and 3D acceleration work with the open source drivers if you're using a new enough kernel (and 2.6.33 is plenty new enough).
