Bug Description

0. Description
After installing fglrx or fglrx-updates, the driver still doesn't work.

        500 saucy/restricted amd64 Packages

3. What I expected to happen
fglrxinfo to return information about the graphics card

4. What happened instead

$ fglrxinfo
X Error of failed request: BadRequest (invalid request code or no such operation)
  Major opcode of failed request: 153 (GLX)
  Minor opcode of failed request: 19 (X_GLXQueryServerString)
  Serial number of failed request: 12
  Current serial number in output stream: 12

5. More information

a.)Iit is loaded in the modules:
$lsmod | grep fgl
fglrx 6732964 0
amd_iommu_v2 19054 1 fglrx

b.) Also tried proprietary drivers 13.8, 13.11 (beta) and 13.12 to avail with " [glesx] __glESXExtensionInit: No GL ES2.0 capable screen found!"

This was generated while trying to force Xorg to use a modified xorg.conf that was meant to use fglrx.
