Problem with new x86_64 ATI driver


I just installed new 64 bit driver on my laptop (ATI Radeon 9600). It's FC3 and kernel version is 2.6.10-1.766_FC3.

I installed driver with yum, installation was flawless, but after rebooting, its still using old mesa driver.

Output of fglrxinfo is as:

Xlib: extension "XFree86-DRI" missing on display ":0.0".
display: :0.0 screen: 0
OpenGL vendor string: Mesa project: www.mesa3d.org
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa GLX Indirect
OpenGL version string: 1.2 (1.5 Mesa 6.1)

Why its not using new ati driver??

any pointers?

expecting tons of replies.

Thank you in advance

You want to REMOVE the default FGLRX package with "yum remove" prior to installing the ati-fglrx packages"
