    ATI drivers no rendering


    Hello. I've installed Backtrack 3 beta on my system and i've also installed my ATI drivers. Even tho they're installed i cannot enable Direct Rendering . I dunno what to do and it's weird tho cause when i type 'lspci' it shows tht i have a x1250 ati card (Correct), but when i go through the information section in the ATI catalyst program it states tht i have a x1200???? Weird tho. I've configured it correctly and i've done the same as i have always have done on my other linux systems, it's jus this one i cannot seem to get working. I know BT3 is based on slackware 12 and it works on the proper
    'slackware 12' version but not BTbeta. Can any1 help please????? I really need to get it working
