I can't get ati to work as OpenGL renderer with 9.1 it falls back to mesa.
It works with 8.12 with same settings.
This is what i see in the Xorg.log
In 8.12 It's dri capable.Code:(II) AIGLX: Screen 0 is not DRI capable (II) Loading sub module "GLcore" (II) LoadModule: "GLcore" (II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions//libGLcore.so (II) Module GLcore: vendor="X.Org Foundation" compiled for 1.4.2, module version = 1.0.0 ABI class: X.Org Server Extension, version 0.3 (II) GLX: Initialized MESA-PROXY GL provider for screen 0 (II) fglrx(0): Restoring recent mode: 1400x1050@60Hz
complete logs:Code:(II) AIGLX: Loaded and initialized /usr/lib/xorg/modules/dri/fglrx_dri.so (II) GLX: Initialized DRI GL provider for screen 0 (II) fglrx(0): Restoring recent mode: 1400x1050@60Hz
Also resizing windows in kde4.2 is real slow with Catalyst driver.
*edit: this is on an Lenovo Thinkpad t60 with an Ati x1400.

Well on my other laptop i use the opensource driver.
But on this one i want to use the fglrx driver for 3D.
Error occurs much earlier during initialization as logfile shows
Haven't seen this one before though.Code:(WW) fglrx(0): Failed to open DRM connection (EE) fglrx(0): [FB] Can not get FB MC address range.
Transition from 8.12 to 9.1 was smooth for me (Mobility X1900) - but that won't help you...
Yeah, I know, my quick answer was just a bit too quick. So forget what I said in my original version of the post...

Knutbert i hope you saw that i posted 2 logs one for 8.12 and one for 9.1 (8.12 works but not 9.1)
I tried with 'Option "IgnoreABI" "on"' and it still doesn't work.Code:(II) ATI Proprietary Linux Driver Version Identifier:8.57.2 (II) ATI Proprietary Linux Driver Release Identifier: 8.573 (II) ATI Proprietary Linux Driver Build Date: Jan 13 2009 23:21:19
