    Default Canot re-install 8.37

    EDIT: Solved after several (yes, more than one) re-installations of the fglrx deb. Weird.

    Hello!
    mobility x1600, gutsy gibbon.
    I was foolish enough to try the new 8.42 driver according to the guides. It did not work, so I removed it, re-installed gutsy 8.37 drivers from synaptic, cleared the blacklisted "fglrx" from the end of /etc/default/linux-restricted-modules-common and rebooted. No help - fglrxinfo still crashes x completely, and I have no 3d. What can I do? This is extremely horrible because with this new ubuntu setup I cannot cancel xgl. This means I have to work with sluggish, completely unresponsive xgl without 3d.
    Please, please help - 3d and compiz-fusion ran fine before this accursed driver came. I tried reconfiguring xserver-conf, but to no avail. fglrx does not even appear in lsmod, but I get proper high resolution of 1680X1050. my xorg.conf is:

    # xorg.conf (xorg X Window System server configuration file)
    #
    # This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using
    # values from the debconf database.
    #
    # Edit this file with caution, and see the xorg.conf manual page.
    # (Type "man xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.)
    #
    # This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package upgrades *only*
    # if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xorg
    # package.
    #
    # If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated
    # again, run the following command:
    # sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg

    Default

    I uninstalled xserver-xgl, so now at least I can work. Now fglrxinfo is not crashing, but is telling:
    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: 1.4 (2.1 Mesa 7.0.1)

    I tried to alter in my xorg.conf posted above the following sections, but to no avail:

    Section "Device"
    Identifier "Generic Video Card"
    Driver "fglrx"
    BusID "PCI:1:0:0"
    Option "VideoOverlay" "on"
    Option "OpenGLOverlay" "off"
    Option "TexturedVideo" "on"
    Option "TexturedVideoSync" "off"
    EndSection

    Section "Module"
    Load "dbe"
    Load "glx"
    EndSection

    Section "DRI"
    Group 0
    Mode 0666
    EndSection


    Can anybody throw me a hint? What should I be looking for and how?
