Do this, chmod -R 666 /dev/dir and see if direct rendering works.

BigJn,having same video card, I tried several changes in /etc/X11/xorg.conf. Tried ati and radeon driver but if in Section Module I load "dri" and in Section "DRI"(at bottom of file) I uncomment Mode 0666 then X wont start but error message about DRI mode not recognized or such. So yes glx will load and I get 3D screensavers working but not DRI. And glxinfo says direct rendering no also. Seems drivers in SLW xorg.conf wont allow DRI. Newer ati cards wd use fglrx. Hope someone else can clarify this for u better.

This post:
, especially the ATI Drivers-section and some of the notes in this document:
, helped me a good deal.

Enemy Territory now runs "smooth" on my laptop
Btw. I'm running 2.6.13-stuff (from /testing) and FreeRock GNOME 2.12.1 (Xorg v6.8.2) on my 1.5GHz Centrino with Mobility Radeon 9600.

Does fglrxinfo return Vendor: ATI <..>?
Does the lines starting with fglrx in /var/log/Xorg.0.log reveal anything?
All modules loaded properly (lsmod | grep agpgart)?
Did /lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod/ return 0?
Do you have the correct kernel-sources? (if compiling the fglrx module did'nt work)

PS: Excuse me for the bad formatted links, I'm a noob (on this board) and this way vBulletin atleast allows me to post (me < 5 posts)
