Driver ati 12.6 final not working
Previously I was using the ati driver 6.12 Beta and it works fine. After the final 12.6 driver released I am trying to install and successfull. But after reboot and try running the command fglrxinfo a message appear:

X Error of failed request: BadRequest (invalid request code or no such operation)
Major opcode of failed request: 135 (GLX)
Minor opcode of failed request: 19 (X_GLXQueryServerString)
Serial number of failed request: 12
Current serial number in output stream: 12

3d effect is also not working. So for now I return to beta driver.
I'm using slackware64-current and xorg versionn is xorg-server-1.12.2-x86_64-1
Is there who experienced the same thing?

PS: Sorry if my English is bad.

Probably need libdrm-2.4.35 or -36

the 6.14.5 need also this patch:

i haven't tested the new 6.14.6, for the moment

Sorry, you speak, of catalist, and me speak, of xf86-video-ati

From what I've read, Catalyst 12.6 doesn't support X 1.12, which is in slackware -current and elsewhere. Apparently AMD/ATI is more intent on supporting Windows these days. There are a couple of threads about this around. It all seems a bit unclear to me, as I don't have one of those cards. You might try the nonproprietary drivers, and someone who has one of those cards will probably give better advice if you say which card you have eg 4000 series, 5000 series etc.

I don't think that it's a problem of xorg's version but kernel's.
Which version are you using? 12.6 doen't compile with latest 3.4.x but instead works with the kernel 3.2.21 of the current released recently.
I'm using AMD drivers with a Radeon 6870 and Slackware64 update to current...

Ati 12.6 supports the xorg server from using it right now with my dv7 laptop.I can switch graphics etc.

fakhry, show us your /var/log/Xorg.0.log file. Till we see that, any other advise you get is pure speculation.

It solved now.
My laptop is Compaq 435 with APU E-350 and videocard ATI Radeon 6310.
I forget to copy old xorg.conf to use.

# mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf.fglrx-50 /etc/X11/xorg.conf
And use script below to remove "Unsopperted hardware" watermark.

for x in $(objdump -d $DRIVER|awk '/call/&&/EnableLogo/{print "\\x"$2"\\x"$3"\\x"$4"\\x"$5"\\x"$6}'); do
sed -i "s/$x/\x90\x90\x90\x90\x90/g" $DRIVER
