This is a common problem with the ATi drivers, and depending on your 
hardware configuration (mainly your AGP chipset), you may have a very 
low performance. A few hints could be to re-check your system setup, 
check for a this directory /usr/X11R6/lib/tls, if there's such 
directory, just rename its contents (they're libGL.so.1.2 and its 
symlink). Also be sure that /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so.1 points to 
libGL.so.1.2 and not an older libGL.so.1.2 or a backup. Other than that 
ther's not much you can do really.
