OK Paolo, on the Gutsy ==> Hardy upgraded machine, I found that the
display was going back to 1.0 instead of 0.0, so I went back to:

even though I do not have any restricted modules installed.

I tried the export:

"If open terminal, and export DISPLAY=:0.0 then glxinfo perfect:"

export DISPLAY=:0.0

and mine was perfect as well.

I then uninstalled xserver-xgl (as mentioned in the bug report)

sudo apt-get remove xserver-xgl

and rebooted just go be sure before posting back...

And all is well again on that machine! glxgears gives a decent response,
dri is working, compiz is working, Google Earth is working, all graphics
that I've test so far are now working properly.

I think the "sudo apt-get remove xserver-xgl" is a loop from your
earliest post, but you might want to try it again just to be sure.
