No direct rendering after uninstalling fglrx

Hello everybody!

Some days ago I thought the new fglrx would be worth a try, so I downloaded it from But since I'm running 6.8.1, it didnt work. Ok, no prob, I wanted to switch back to Xorg's "ati" driver - BUT: I did not have direct rendering anymore. I re-installed my backup of thos libGLs - no use. Recompiled mesa and removed the libGL libs from /usr/X11/lib - didnt work. /dev/drm/card0 is accessable, but I dont have any direct rendering - so why?! What did the fglrx driver change so that isnt able to access drm anymore? Please help!
