YAAT (Yet Another Ati Thread)

Been trying desperately to get my Ati allinwonder 8500 to work with linux. (in fact, I believe half of my LQ posts are about this card and different distros) No freakin Idea whats going on. I even went so far as to reformat my / partition and start at the very beginning

I did all the steps correctly, however after I run the ATI proprietary driver, my x-server is out of sync with my monitor.

So i have to go to my first terminal

and run

sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop

sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg

to put my monitors correct horizontal and Vertical sync

i now see the ATI CONTROL app on my applications menu, but the output of fglrxinfo is still
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)
after aticonfig --initial
and aticonfig --overlay-type=Xv

dmesg | grep fglrx shows

dmesg | grep fglrx
[4294691.972000] fglrx: module license 'Proprietary. (C) 2002 - ATI Technologies, Starnberg, GERMANY' taints kernel.
[4294691.975000] [fglrx] Maximum main memory to use for locked dma buffers: 929 MBytes.
[4294691.975000] [fglrx] module loaded - fglrx 8.25.18 [May 18 2006] on minor 0
[4294705.583000] [fglrx:firegl_unlock] *ERROR* Process 4424 using kernel context 0
Any ideas?
