    Try:
    Code:
    $ LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose glxinfo
    And paste here what it says when "direct rendering: no" appears (just first lines, above "name of display").

      the output is:
      Code:
      $ LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose glxinfo
      name of display: :0.0                        
      display: :0  screen: 0                       
      direct rendering: No
      hmm .. there is nothing more above 'name of display'

      @ TechMage89:
      I only have:
      Code:
      ls -la /dev/dri/
      total 0
      drwxr-xr-x  2 root root       80 2010-01-23 00:23 .
      drwxr-xr-x 26 root root    14260 2010-01-22 23:23 ..
      crw-rw----  1 root video 226,  0 2010-01-22 23:24 card0
      crw-rw----  1 root video 226, 64 2010-01-23 00:23 controlD64

          hi dave,
          you were right! there was old cruft from an earlier fglrx-installation in /usr/lib64/xorg/; after deleting the old files (and updating to kde-4.3.5) everything is working fine. now that I have snow on my desktop, life can go on

          time to say many thanks not only for your great work, but also for your support on this forum!

            Just keep in mind that installing fglrx manually instead of using an ebuild is a bad, bad idea. Gentoo is different from all other distros fglrx supports in it's installation script. So don't do it again

              Want to have both fglrx and the OSS driver installed at the same time and switch between them? Always remember to use "eselect opengl".

              (1 minute and then we can't edit? What kind of stupid idea what that? )

                The one-minute thing is temporary, and yes it's really annoying

                Michael found that new users (spammers) were getting around the anti-spam restrictions on new users by posting something innocuous then immediately editing it into something big and annoying.
