Ati Mobility x600 Direct rendering help


Hi, my laptop is equiped with a mobility radeon X600. My problem is that I cannot seem to make my video hardware accelerated. My log seems to indicated it is actualy enabled, but I only get 350 fps in glxgears. Here's a part of my log, glxinfo ouput, and fglrxinfo output:
log:

I thought the above quote meant it was enabled, that was only for the log, but of course I saw that glxinfo informed me that hardware acceleration was not enabled.
I installed the driver by running the .run driver file and then fglrxconfig. The modules where compiled and installed automatically by the run script. Would other parts of my log be useful for you to look at?
