Anyone?? Please help me, I have tried to make it work for a week now.

yeah the ATI drivers released as of now do not support compositing. If the driver notices the compositing option it will disable direct rendering. We have to manually turn it off until ATI supports AIGLX. At the end of your xorg.conf add this:Section "DRI"
Group 0
Mode 0666
EndSection

Section "Extensions"
Option "Composite" "False"
EndSection


I also threw in every module I could find (because I don't know what the difference is):Section "Module"
Load "dbe"
Load "extmod"
Load "fbdevhw"
Load "glx"
Load "record"
Load "freetype"
Load "type1"
Load "dri"
EndSection


That should fix up your issues... good luck.
