I haven't followed this thread, although I should had because I also
have an X1300 (although for i686 system) that never worked during fc7
testing.  And if not already mentioned, the reason fglrx doesn't, is
because ATI's current driver, doesn't detect the xorg-x11-server-Xorg
version correctly.  So until they get that fixed (or you replace the
current xorg driver with an older one), we'll have to wait.

And for you compiz/beryl users, here is bug filed as well for composite

Hope this helps (or I am just a dime late/dollar short haha)
