Ubuntu 8.04: ATI directr rendering, issue 2

Well i got it broken again.

This time running
$ sudo modprobe --ignore-install fglrx
yielded
FATAL: Module fglrx not found

WTF??

By examining System > Administration > Hardware Drivers i found no driver for ATI card.

To fix that i went to System > Administration > Synaptic Package Manager and searched for fglrx.

I had linux-restricted-modules installed for 2.6.24.12-16.34 kernel installed.
But actual kernel version was
$ uname -a
Linux gm 2.6.24-19-generic #1 SMP Wed Jun 4 16:35:01 UTC 2008 i686 GNU/Linux


So removing old and installing appropriate linux-restricted-modules for 2.6.24.13-19.24 kernels solved my direct rendering issue:
$ glxinfo |grep direct
3:direct rendering: Yes


PS. Don't forget to reboot!
Hope this will help you too! :)
