Hi!

I got tiered of Windows 7 so I decided to install Ubuntu 10.04 (x86) since I find it more comfortable also got tiered of the damn bluescreens it gave me.
I installed the graphic drivers following this guide: http://wiki.cchtml.com/index.php/Ubuntu_Lucid_Installation_Guide#Installing_the_dri vers_manually
Everything went smooth and turned out well until I installed HoN(Heroes of Newerth a dota like game). Tried to launch it but getting an error, which I didn't get before when I ra
n:
fglrxinfo
The error I'm getting for executing this is:

X Error of failed request: BadLength (poly request too large or internal Xlib length error)
Major opcode of failed request: 141 (ATIFGLEXTENSION)
Minor opcode of failed request: 65 ()
Serial number of failed request: 12
Current serial number in output stream: 12

I didn't find anything proper when I searched on google.
I can see that it has something to do with the graphic drivers, but I don't know what to do about it.
Shall I reinstall the drivers in another way or what should I do?

My hardware is:
Graphic card - XFX 5830 1GB DDR5
CPU - Intel 2 Core Quad Q9300 2.5GHz
RAM - OCZ DDR2 PC2-8500 REAPER HPC 4GB

Thanks
