XBMC missing OpenGL

I want to install XBMC on my SpakyLinux 3.3 with LXDE. Now I have the Problem that XBMC says: "XBMC needs hardware accelerate OpenGL rendering. Install an apprpiate graphics driver". I have the Linux Kernel 3.13.6 and have an ATI Mobile Readeon HD 5650 graphic card. I currently use the "xserver-xorg-video-radeon" driver I also tried the fglrx-driver but with this one my Monitor stood black. Anybody can help?



I don't use proprietary drivers and I don't want to tell you something wrong, but you can try:


sudo apt-get remove --purge fglrx*
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install fglrx-driver fglrx-control
sudo /usr/bin/aticonfig --initial

I tried it this way unfortunaly I still have the problem with the Blackscreen. The Blackscreen is also in recovery mode. So i googled a little bit. I ran the follow line


grep fglrx /etc/modprobe.d/*

it printed out. fglrx conflicts with the free radeon driver. So I uninstalled the other graphics driver and reconfig the xorg.confi with


aticonfig --initial --force

and rebootet the system. still blackscreen and the grep prints still out the same. some ideas?
