Number 1 produces a seemingly infinite wall of text.
Number 2 results in:
X Error of failed request: BadRequest (invalid request code or no such operation)
Major opcode of failed request: 138 (ATIFGLEXTENSION)
Minor opcode of failed request: 66 ()
Serial number of failed request: 13
Current serial number in output stream: 13
Number 3 produces over 850 lines of text, but fglrx does not appear in it.
Number 4 does not get any reply.
Running aticonfig --initial again results in no change.
The Number 2 error message is actually the same as the error message produced by the game.

I did find this
"installation guide". But the first thing it does is telling you to use a different guide and then starting to explain... something?
With a HD 6600 card I think I should ignore all that and just follow the Fedora 15 instructions.
Here is the fglrx-install.log
Detected a previous installation, /usr/share/ati/amd-uninstall.sh
Dryrun uninstall succeeded continuing with installation.
Check if system has the tools required for installation.
Uninstalling any previously installed drivers.

Restoring system environment...

Uninstall of AMD Catalyst(TM) Proprietary Driver complete.
For detailed log of uninstall, please see /etc/ati/fglrx-uninstall.log
System must be rebooted to avoid system instability and potential data loss.

Unfortunately the "guide" only tells you what should be happening. But nothing on what you can do if something else happens.

With the culprit found, I've taken this issue to the regular forums.
So [SOLVED] in a way, I guess. ; )
