ATI Driver Issue (DRI Problem)

In my Xorg.log.0, I see the following:
(II) fglrx(0): DRI initialization successfull!
(II) fglrx(0): [DRI] installation complete
(II) fglrx(0): Direct rendering enabled
But when I run `glxinfo`, at the top it says:
direct rendering: No
OpenGL vendor string: Mesa project:
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa GLX Indirect
OpenGL version string: 1.2 (1.5 Mesa 6.4.1)
I'm not sure what I need to do to fix this, but this is, I'm pretty sure, what is preventing hardware acceleration to work on my box. Any help?

Note: I have a Mobility 9600, Slackware 11.0 RC2, kernel, and there are no errors in the Xorg log.

Plus, ATI doesn't use glxinfo, it has it's own little bit of code.

A clue may be found in my post about DRI (Link in my sig)


ati, dri, fglrx
