Description of problem:
I can't get the ati proprietary linux driver (8.33.6) to work if i have enabled dri in my xorg.conf, i can't even get to login screen because there is no signal to screen after loading the system, even Ctrl+Alt+F1 can't start the text interface (but it can be loaded because i can restart my system with Ctrl+Alt+Esc). 

This problem has occur after updating my kernel to 2.6.20-1.2930 and with 2.6.20-1.2932 versions but it works with 2.6.20-1.2925 and after updating i installed the correct fglrx module for my kernel.

I used the installer from to generate the ati driver installation packages.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel - 2.6.20-1.2932 and 2.6.20-1.2930

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Generate ati proprietary drivers with Michael Larabels installer

2. Install generated packages

3. Configure dri to be loaded with system start in xorg.conf

3. Reboot my system

Actual Results:
