Catalyst driver cannot initialize Direct Rendering.
I own an ATI Mobility X2300 and since the latest update it fails to provide 3D acceleration.

Additional info:
* catalyst 8.7-1.1 / kernel26-
* This is what I found after a little research (dmesg, because Xorg.0.log didn't seem relevant):
[fglrx] Reserved FB block: Shared offset:0, size:1000000
[fglrx] Reserved FB block: Unshared offset:7fbb000, size:40000
[fglrx] Reserved FB block: Unshared offset:7ffb000, size:5000
[fglrx:__create_mapping] *ERROR* Could not find the group private data
[fglrx:__mc_heap_map_virtual_space] *ERROR* Failed to map the virtual space
[fglrx:mc_heap_map_virtual_space] *ERROR* Can not get virtual address
[fglrx:MCIL_GetVirtualAddressInDescriptor] *ERROR* Can not get the virtual address

Steps to reproduce:
Well... load fglrx and start X. :)

Does Catalyst 8.7-2 solve this?

Yes, it does. Just tested it. I'll request closure. :)
