Unhappy fglrx & edgy. don't work properly


Hi. I just installed Kubuntu Edgy. I also installed the fglrx drivers for the ubuntu repositories and then changed the drivers for "standard" to "proprietary" through systemsettings. After reboot, screen resolution is at "640x480@60". Had to change this to "1600x1200@85", and that works. But still the drivers don't work as i should. When i start a app, for example Kaffeine or glxgears -printfps, the terminal tells me this:

Code:
Xlib:  extension "XFree86-DRI" missing on display ":0.0".
video_out_opengl: compiled for BGRA output, but missing extension.
[mpeg4 @ 0xb5ae4ea4]frame skip 8
[mpeg4 @ 0xb5ae4ea4]frame skip 8
I tried "sudo aticonfig --initial --input=/etc/X11/xorg.conf", but it doesn't change anything.

I have a radeon 9800 XT.

Heres my xorg.conf

Code:
# /etc/X11/xorg.conf (xorg X Window System server configuration file)
#
# This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using
# values from the debconf database.
#
# Edit this file with caution, and see the /etc/X11/xorg.conf manual page.
# (Type "man /etc/X11/xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.)
#
# This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package upgrades *only*
# if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xorg
# package.
#
# If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated
# again, run the following command:
#   sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg

It's really terrible right now. Can't watch videos. It's just to slow.

Thanks for any help
