I think it's just a typo but try Screen 1  vs Screen 0 unless I need my glasses again. wink

Re: fglrxinfo shows Mesa after installing ATI drivers... SOLVED!

based on your lsmod you're missing an agp module.  Run hwdetect --show-agp to get a list of agp modules you need to load, and then add them to the MODULES array in rc.conf.

Make sure you load fglrx _after_ all the agp modules.

If it still doesn't work, could you post the output of

grep "(EE)|(WW)" /var/log/Xorg.0.log

and

LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose glxinfo

(you might need to pastebin that one, it'll be a bit long unless something's really wrong)

# hwdetect --show-agp
AGP    : agpgart nvidia-agp

I assume I do not want to load nvidia-agp since I have an ATI card, right?

# grep "(EE)|(WW)" /var/log/Xorg.0.log

Do I need to have libgl-dri installed?  I uninstalled due to a conflict when installing fglrx.

Re: fglrxinfo shows Mesa after installing ATI drivers... SOLVED!

Solved over IM. tongue
seelk needed to load nvidia-agp along with agpgart before fglrx in the MODULES array in rc.conf, and needed to uncomment the DRI section in his xorg.conf.
