Run the following command to check its output to ensure the fglrx driver is installed properly:
$ fglrxinfo display: :0.0 screen: 0 OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc. OpenGL renderer string: ATI MOBILITY RADEON 9600/9700 Series OpenGL version string: 2.0.6650 (8.40.4)
OpenGL vendor string should read ATI and not Mesa.
If you see a message like 'Xlib: extension "XFree86-DRI" missing on display ":1.0"' then you may have to add the following to /etc/X11/xorg.conf (see ):
Section "Extensions" Option "Composite" "Disable" EndSection
Additional configure with aticonfig tool
You can even more configure the driver with the aticonfig tool, more information can be found at Configuring.

Tocuhdwon! That's a really cool way of putting it!
