So this is the problem i have installed fglrx 8.3 driver(not from software manager) with
# chmod +x ati-driver-installer-8-3-x86.x86_64.run
#sh +x ati-driver-installer-8-3-x86.x86_64.run
#./ati-driver-installer-8-3-x86.x86_64.run buildpkg Mandriva/2008
But it wont start using fglrx.I tried also aticonfig --initial at the end,aslo to check in control centar but every time it loads mesa driver.Does someone have another idea ?Btw my graphic card is x200m if that maters
Just to show you that am not insane

Do you have got the file
Can you try a "modprobe fglrx" and restart X? Does modprobe fail to load fglrx?
Also, it may be easier just to enable Mandriva's "non-free backports" repository, it has got the latest fglrx release in it.
Yes i have /usr/lib/dri/fglrx_dri.so.And it loads again mesa if i start modprobe+restart x.Also i do have non-free backports but 8.45 is latest.
You seem to be using a bit mirror or haven't updated it for a while. fglrx 8.471 is in non-free/backports for a while now, as you can see at this random, german mirror:
I don't use Mandriva outside vbox at the moment, but are planning to do a larger test when Mandriva 2008.1 (Spring) releases, because the RC2 already is very nice. So I can't help you that much without using it by myself, sorry.
