    To change your xorg.conf you need to run aticonfig --initial

    The driver found in the Ubuntu repository is not 8.41 and thus doesn't support the HD 2600XT.

    What does your xorg.conf look like? I've never seen that error on an R600 chip.
    This is my xorg.conf after successfully running aticonfig --initial

    Code:
    Section "Monitor"
    	Identifier   "Generic Monitor"
    	HorizSync    28.0 - 51.0
    	VertRefresh  43.0 - 60.0
    	Option	    "DPMS"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Monitor"
    	Identifier   "aticonfig-Monitor[0]"
    	Option	    "VendorName" "ATI Proprietary Driver"
    	Option	    "ModelName" "Generic Autodetecting Monitor"

    Section "Device"
    	Identifier  "Generic Video Card"
    	Driver      "fglrx"

    EndSection
    
    Section "Device"
    	Identifier  "aticonfig-Device[0]"
    	Driver      "fglrx"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Screen"
    	Identifier "Default Screen"
    	Device     "Generic Video Card"
    	Monitor    "Generic Monitor"
    	DefaultDepth     24
    	SubSection "Display"

    Yeah, the driver didn't work for me either, I got the glesx.so issue. I hope the 8.42 driver is the one, if AMD doesn't hurry up, I might have a new nVidia card soon.

    "
    Section "Extensions"
    Option "Composite" "0"
    EndSection
    "

    Mine looks like this:
    "
    Section "Extensions"
    Option "Composite" "Disable"
    EndSection
    "

    I wonder if that form makes a difference?
    edit: I've also got these in the "Device" section:
    Option "XAANoOffscreenPixmaps"
    Option "UseInternalAGPGART" "yes"
    Option "VideoOverlay" "on"
    No idea if they matter - they don't look like it.

    I think they're the same thing, he can try this though, add this at the bottom of your xorg.conf:

    Code:
    Section "ServerFlags"
          Option "AIGLX" "off"
    EndSection

    Default AGP 9550 fglrx 8.41.7 - update

    Roderick Colenbrander has a workaround against current wine that fixes the Visual overlay detection - I've built an overlay on my gentoo for wine 0.9.44 and the patch applies clean and appears to fix the problem of detecting the visual -- unfortunately in this state World of Warcraft is utterly unplayable - the characters and most game features are not visible on the play field -- although terrain and major objects are (i.e. player toons, npc's enemies trees bushes are invisible, but inns, ground, flightpath stands are visible.

    I did NOT notice a frame rate improvement in this state ...


    *rollback time*

    I did some digging around in the Name The Next ATI Driver Contest thread and found a suitable name, I think I found it.

    Are you using xorg 7.3? I think ATI says it's somehow not compatible with it, yet.
