No direct rendering with Catalyst 10.12 on Maverick (Radeon HD 4200)
I installed fglrx according to ATI doc on Maverick distrib. Graphic Card is a Radeon HD 4200 embedded on the GA-MA785-UDH3 MOBO. Everything runs fine (Compiz, fgl_glxgears at 750FPS). However: glxinfo returns "direct rendering: no". Debugging info:
libGL: OpenDriver: trying /usr/lib/fglrx/dri/tls/swrast_dri.so
libGL: OpenDriver: trying /usr/lib/fglrx/dri/swrast_dri.so
libGL error: dlopen /usr/lib/fglrx/dri/swrast_dri.so failed (/usr/lib/fglrx/dri/swrast_dri.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory)

Tested all I founded over the net.
Any ideas ?
Just install the driver from this ppa which has the latest catalyst drivers for your distribution.Its just around 40 Mb compared to the one from the site which is a monstrous 100 mb and also provides a proper way of installing any software on your system.
In case it doesnt work after installation , type in a terminal
sudo aticonfig --f
And it should be working fine.
