My ATI woes


Yep another ATI problem

I did this method successfully on one machine (different ATI graphics card though) but for the current one it doesn't work.


lspci

shows it has
Code:
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc RV370 5B60
[Radeon X300 (PCIE)]
01:00.1 Display controller: ATI Technologies Inc RV370 [Radeon X300SE]
and I used this method to install

Code:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install module-assistant fglrx-driver fglrx-kernel-src
sudo module-assistant auto-install fglrx-kernel-src
sudo aticonfig --initial
my xorg.conf is:

Code:
Section "ServerLayout"
       Identifier     "aticonfig Layout"
       Screen      0  "aticonfig-Screen[0]-0" 0 0
EndSection

Section "Files"
EndSection

Section "Module"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
       Identifier  "Generic Keyboard"
       Driver      "kbd"
       Option      "XkbRules" "xorg"
       Option      "XkbModel" "pc105"
       Option      "XkbLayout" "gb"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
       Identifier  "Configured Mouse"
       Driver      "mouse"
EndSection

Section "Monitor"
       Identifier   "Configured Monitor"
EndSection

Section "Monitor"
       Identifier   "aticonfig-Monitor[0]-0"
       Option      "VendorName" "ATI Proprietary Driver"
       Option      "ModelName" "Generic Autodetecting Monitor"
       Option      "DPMS" "true"
EndSection

Section "Device"
       Identifier  "Configured Video Device"
       Option      "UseFBDev" "true"
EndSection

Section "Device"
       Identifier  "aticonfig-Device[0]-0"
       Driver      "fglrx"
       BusID       "PCI:1:0:0"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
       Identifier "Default Screen"
       Monitor    "Configured Monitor"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
       Identifier "aticonfig-Screen[0]-0"
       Device     "aticonfig-Device[0]-0"
       Monitor    "aticonfig-Monitor[0]-0"
       DefaultDepth     24
       SubSection "Display"
               Viewport   0 0
               Depth     24
       EndSubSection
EndSection
but the issue is everytime I type "fglrxinfo" I get the MESA message:

Code:
display: :0.0  screen: 0
OpenGL vendor string: Mesa project: www.mesa3d.org
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa GLX Indirect
OpenGL version string: 1.4 (2.1 Mesa 7.0.4)
tried numerous things like adding fgrlx to my /etc/modules but that did not work.
