Comment 1 Thomas Lübking 2013-10-02 14:01:49 UTC
You got a mixed mode installation between MESA and fglrx drivers.
-> No OpenGL process will run.

Try running "aticonfig --initial" unless your actual problem is that you're installing "fglrx" while your GPU is no longer supported and you actually wanted to use "fglrx-legacy"
