fglrx + slackware 11

I have this trouble:

bash-3.1# fglrxinfo
display: :0.0 screen: 0
OpenGL vendor string: Mesa project:
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa GLX Indirect
OpenGL version string: 1.2 (1.5 Mesa 6.4.1)

The fglrx module loads perfectly and also agpgart.
Any suggestions how to enable the driver?

dmesg says:

fglrx: module license 'Proprietary. (C) 2002 - ATI Technologies, Starnberg, GERMANY' taints kernel.
[fglrx] Maximum main memory to use for locked dma buffers: 1168 MBytes.
[fglrx] USWC is disabled in module parameters
[fglrx] PAT is disabled!
[fglrx] module loaded - fglrx 8.40.4 [Jul 31 2007] on minor 0
[fglrx] Internal AGP is not supported in 2.6 kernel.
[fglrx:firegl_unlock] *ERROR* Process 2430 using kernel context 0

[fglrx] Internal AGP is not supported in 2.6 kernel.
[fglrx:firegl_unlock] *ERROR* Process 3946 using kernel context 0

I have tried all kinds of xorg config files suggested on the internet, but nothing works.

I have kernel 2.6.19 and 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc RV350 [Mobility Radeon 9600 M10]

Are you saying that your agpgart iscompiled as a module? (If not you have to recompile the kernel with agp and the agp chipset as a module)
If so, you may have luck fiddling with the "UseInternalAGPGART" option in xorg.conf.

A couple of URLs...
