    Default ATI Proprietary/Fglrx not working if DRI is on... [X1600 Pro (RV530) / fglrx 8.476]

    Hi, I just installed Gentoo Linux in my Desktop PC (I were using it on my laptop for years) and I found a little problem:

    I cant start X with DRI activated... I were trying different configs in the last 2 days but I got crazy...
    It only works with fglrx/ATI Proprietary if I set in the device section "NoDRI" and don't works 3D Acceleration.
    If I try to use with DRI ON when X start it gets blocked and the screen is black, I have to use SysRq to Reboot the system (or hard reset...)
    I tried with radeonhd too but I think that with those drivers I can't enable 3D Acceleration...

    Note: I have in the config files the Secondary adapter but I tried too without it.

    Here I put the different configs that I tried:
    Xorg.conf - Radeonhd No 3D Accel. - Working (Using now)
    Xorg.conf - Fglrx No 3D Accel. - NoDRI - Working...
    Xorg.conf - Fglrx DRI ON - Not Working...

    I tried them with xorg 7.2 & 7.3 and xorg-server 1.3.0.0 & 1.4.0.90

    Lspci, Xorg version, xorg-server version, and other stuff...

    P.D: I read in other thread that with radeon driver and lastest mesa/drm I can get 3D, anyone knows if it works?
