Some interesting stuff in my X log

NOTE: I'm prefacing this by saying I didn't look for this under 8.40

(==) AIGLX enabled

(II) fglrx(0): DRI initialization successfull!

(II) fglrx(0): Direct rendering enabled

However, at the end I get

(EE) AIGLX error: DRIAuthConnection failed
(EE) AIGLX: reverting to software rendering


So.... close....
