    Ok, I really appreciate your patience here.

    I reinstalled with --force. And then I ran:
    aticonfig --initial --input=/etc/X11/xorg.conf

    Now when I run fglrxinfo I get this:

    fglrxinfo: error while loading shared libraries: /usr/lib/xorg/libGL.so.1: cannot restore segment prot after reloc: Permission denied

    I have no idea what that is, or what to do about it.

    Also, I'm afraid to reboot because i'm 99% sure x will not start again, simply because what I'm seeing here is what I saw before.

    Any ideas?

      Hmmm I don't believe I have ever run into that issue before. Does /usr/lib/xorg/libGL.so.1 exist? If so, then try running fglrx info as root and see.

        Do you mean remove it and then run fglrxinfo? I'm not sure if that's what you meant - and I don't want to do it if I shouldn't.

        Code:
        ls -l /usr/lib/xorg/libGL.so*
        lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root     26 Mar  7 12:43 /usr/lib/xorg/libGL.so -> /usr/lib/xorg/libGL.so.1.2
        lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root     26 Mar  7 12:43 /usr/lib/xorg/libGL.so.1 -> /usr/lib/xorg/libGL.so.1.2
        -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 783353 Mar  7 12:43 /usr/lib/xorg/libGL.so.1.2

          Ok, I took a chance (I could always recreate the link). Now I can run fglrxinfo, and I get this:

          Code:
          # fglrxinfo
          
          Xlib:  extension "XFree86-DRI" missing on display ":0.0".
          display: :0.0  screen: 0

          OpenGL renderer string: Mesa GLX Indirect
          OpenGL version string: 1.2 (1.5 Mesa 6.5.1)

              Looking in my xorg file, I'm wondering why I have 3 device sections? Should I change the lines with 'radeon' to 'fglrx' ??

                Those radeon sections aren't being referenced so you could actually remove them, but are fine staying there.

                Did you try eliminating the Xinerama line and then getting it running first in a single head config?

                  Alright, I'm fooling around with it with just using single head mode. Now fglrxinfo is giving the tungsten graphics output.

                  I'm really at a loss here. Perhaps I won't worry about hardware acceleration.

                    Well the 9550 is supported by the open-source drivers, so you could get by without fglrx and instead using the open-source ones working by default.

                      yeah - doesn't matter what I do... X server always crashes at boot. I have to rescue and start over each time.
