Exclamation updated ati 9800 with kmod fglrx - no desktop effects

After installing a fresh copy of FC8 and updating it, I decided to update fglrx. Now I cannot enable desktop effects. Here is my info:

[root@ns1 Andre]# yum info kmod-fglrx

Summary: Metapackage which tracks in fglrx kernel module for newest kernel
This is a meta-package without payload which sole purpose is to require the
fglrx kernel module(s) for the newest kernel,
to make sure you get it together with a new kernel.
