2.6.27-rc5 radeon kernel module can't load r300_dri.so - help?

You can have fglrx installed, there's no problem with that. But fglrx cannot be LOADED when you try loading radeon. So check if fglrx has loaded with lsmod. If it is, remove it from the kernel (rmmod fglrx) and try starting X again. 

Disclaimer: The above is based on my experiences using Gentoo, not Ubuntu... both my Ubuntu machines have NVidea cards in them.

Hi Markus, Julien and Daniel!

Thanks for your answers!

I have indeed fglrx installed for the Ubuntu kernel (bootable from a second grub entry). Is libGL made up by the <chip>_dri.so files or is libGL another file collection? My r300_dri.so is from a package by Andrius Štikonas which contains a backport of mesa with fixes by David Airlie for the Radeon XPress 1100 to work with DRI http://ppa.launchpad.net/stikonas/ubuntu and http://airlied.livejournal.com/59351.html .  That package I installed after fglrx. Would uninstalling fglrx solve the problem or would I have to get another mesa (which includes libGL if I understood you right)?

Thanks and K&BR

Usually, this indicates that you still have fglrx installed.  Even if
you're not using it, fglrx provides its own libGL.so which is
incompatible with Mesa's, so you have to remove it before you can use
the open source driver.
