glx and Radeon 9800


a few days ago my Nvidia GF3ti200 died after many years of faithful service. i eagerly purchased a Radeon 9800 pro and ran into a few problems trying to install ATI's linux drivers, but i soon downloaded and compiled the 2.6.7 kernel and got them working with the help of the thread titled: "ATI, Slackware 10 and 2.6.7 INSTALL GUIDE" by sovietpower.

now i am running slackware 10 with kernel version 2.6.7.

after running fglrxconfig (and using the generated conf file) i can start and use X, it is a bit laggy, and it seems that i have a problem with my glx library.

Code:
$ lsmod

nvidia_agp              6940  1

Code:
(EE) Failed to initialize GLX extension (NVIDIA X driver not found)
in my kernel i have /dev/agpgart (AGP Support), ATI chipset support, and NVIDIA nForce/nForce2 chipset support as modules, and Direct Rendering Manager (XFree86 4.1.0 and higher DRI support) compiled straight in (the only option), and ATI Radeon compiled as a module.

any help would be great

update:
just 2 seconds after posting, i did this:
Code:
$ ls -l /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions
total 964
-r--r--r--  1 root root  16484 2004-06-05 14:43 libdbe.a

-r--r--r--  1 root root  39354 2004-06-05 14:43 libxtrap.a
it looks like libglx.so.1.0.6111 is a glx library lingering from my gf3ti200 drivers. how do i go about replacing it with one that works with my radeon?
