no libdri.so with ati-drivers-10.1
 
I tried 10.1 but just got a blank screen. The log file shows that xorg
couldnt load libdri.so, and the file is missing under /usr/lib64/xorg.
(its at /usr/lib64/xorg/modules/extensions/libdri.so in 9.9-r2)

So, any ideas or should i issue a bug report?

Yes, use the open source drivers:

x11-drivers/xf86-video-ati

;-)

This can't universally be the answer.

I have been forced to upgrade from ati-drivers-9.11 (due to being stuck
at xorg-server-1.6.5) to xf86-video-ati-6.12.4, however I have yet to
find a successful xorg.conf configuration that will give me
*dual-screen*, (not single screen, dual monitor), setup that I had
working with flgrx.

I would really like to stay with the opensource radeonhd driver, but it
looks like I have to give up dual-screen (:0.0, :0.1 setup) which I
prefer for Gnome.

So it would nice to still have a working ati-drivers setup until
xf86-video-ati does it all.

Much luck for that.

I had spent a lot of time to get that working and now I use Xrandr ;-)

xf86-video-ati has better support for that then radeonhd but with both is
always the risk that it stops working after an update.
Oh and dual-head (first and foremost with open drivers) is broken with xorg-
server bigger 1.4 and smaller 1.7

Xrandr is no the new black and with that support for dual-screen layout is not
much supported and very low priorised.
There was/is a discussion running on the x11-mailinglist over that topic.
The core content from that is "bury the old style, prefer xrandr, let the WM
or DE handle the rest."

Xrandr isn't that bad but its not mature enough. There is much to do on
protocol side and on WM/DE side.
