cannot get DRI to work with ATI fglrx drivers under X

i cannot get direct rendering to work with ATI fglrx drivers.
i already read at least hundred threads, followed many of them, and nothing helped.
my kernel is 2.6.11-1.27_FC3, i use

i managed to install the rpms:
ati-fglrx-devel-, kernel-module-fglrx-2.6.11-1.27_FC3-
and the kernel-module lists using "lsmod | grep fglrx":
fglrx                 234044  7
some lines from "cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log":
(II) fglrx(0): [drm] DRM interface version 1.0
(II) fglrx(0): [drm] created "fglrx" driver at busid "PCI:1:0:0"
(II) fglrx(0): DRI initialization successfull!
(II) fglrx(0): Using XFree86 Acceleration Architecture (XAA)
but when i do "glxinfo | grep direct", i get:
direct rendering: No
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa GLX Indirect
perhaps the loaded module is not the right one, even if it is successfully loaded..?
i also read somewhere that i should perhaps "insmod agpgart", but i couldn't find the rpm for this module, i am using i865 chipset though...
perhaps i messed up my, i already installed couple of drivers, i dont know...

please, if anybody could help me from here, i am stuck...

yes, i have tried the recomended thread, i've seen it befor i posted my thread, thank you.
first i even followed the steps in that tread, but did not work for me.
after that i yum'ed the drivers for my kernel that were built at and installed kernel module, fglrx package and fglrx-devel (last one just for completeness) packages.

so kernel module loads, but in X there is no direct rendering.
maby it is something wrong with my X configuration that is not directly connected with xorg.conf, which i already changed at least thirty times?

i also tried ldconfig to clean dependencies.
