ATI Drivers Radeon 9600 Mobile Trouble

heypeople im trying to get my ati mobile radeon 9600 working with 3d accel.. im using slackware with a gentoo portage port...

i installed the ati-drivers and did opengl-update ati... however

bash-2.05b# /opt/ati/bin/fglrxinfo
display: :0.0 screen: 0
OpenGL vendor string: Mesa project:
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa GLX Indirect
OpenGL version string: 1.2 (1.4 Mesa 5.0.2)

its not loading the ATI drivers, plus

modprobe: Can't locate module fglrx

i ran fglrxconfig and everything went fine.. i tried using their AGPART and the kernels.. and my glxgears are giving me like 150FPS

Linux agpgart interface v0.99 (c) Jeff Hartmann
agpgart: Maximum main memory to use for agp memory: 439M
agpgart: Detected ATI IGP9100/M chipset
agpgart: AGP aperture is 32M @ 0xea000000

its detected on boot, i dunno whats wrong.. maybe my xorg.conf? I honestly dont know.. any help would be appreciated..

Have you got your kernel sources installed with the /usr/src/linux sym link pointing to them ?

If not install the kernel sources and create the symlink then re-install ati-drivers etc.
