Ubuntu 8.04: ATI directr rendering, issue 2

Well i got it broken again.

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


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 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 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! :)
