ati "direct rendering: No" of glxinfo

I installed amd ati driver 8.40.4 for my x1300 card.
I tried several day and changed dozens of xorg.conf files which were supposed to work,
but I can't get my ati card work properly.

The fglxinfo will get "direct rendering: No" no matter what I change xorg.conf.

$ glxinfo
name of display: :0.0
display: :0 screen: 0
direct rendering: No
server glx vendor string: SGI
server glx version string: 1.2
server glx extensions:
GLX_ARB_multisample, GLX_EXT_visual_info, GLX_EXT_visual_rating,
GLX_EXT_import_context, GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap, GLX_OML_swap_method,
GLX_SGI_make_current_read, GLX_SGIS_multisample, GLX_SGIX_hyperpipe,
GLX_SGIX_swap_barrier, GLX_SGIX_fbconfig, GLX_MESA_copy_sub_buffer
client glx vendor string: ATI
client glx version string: 1.3
client glx extensions:
And here's result of fglrxinfo:
$ fglrxinfo
display: :0.0 screen: 0
OpenGL vendor string: Mesa project: www.mesa3d.org
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa GLX Indirect
OpenGL version string: 1.2 (1.5 Mesa 6.5.1)
And glxgears result is very very slow:
$ glxgears
891 frames in 5.5 seconds = 163.349 FPS
840 frames in 5.6 seconds = 151.293 FPS
840 frames in 5.5 seconds = 151.479 FPS
840 frames in 5.6 seconds = 150.261 FPS
840 frames in 5.6 seconds = 150.063 FPS
My xorg.conf is attached.
Please give me some hint.
I've been trying to settle this problem for weeks and I'm now desperate.
I know there are many many threads on ati drivers here but I have to start a new one since I can't get any ideas after reading lots of them.

Is there any message in /var/log/Xorg.0.log that shows the direct rendering option being processed when xorg.conf is read?

Thank you all.
I've found the reason,
because the first time I installed kmod-fglrx by yum,
but this time I install ati driver manually,
they conflict to each other.
I uninstalled kmod-fglrx and install ati driver again and this time it works.
