Your glxinfo shows that you are using software mesa.  Clues: no mention
of ATI in the vendor strings, lack of the extensions (ie vertex &
fragment shaders) known to be supported by ATI.

Using the ATI drivers (fglrx), glxinfo comes out like this on my box:

name of display: :0.0
display: :0  screen: 0
direct rendering: Yes
server glx vendor string: SGI
server glx version string: 1.2
server glx extensions:
    GLX_ARB_multisample, GLX_EXT_visual_info, GLX_EXT_visual_rating, 
    GLX_EXT_import_context, GLX_OML_swap_method,
GLX_SGI_make_current_read, GLX_SGIS_multisample, GLX_SGIX_hyperpipe,
GLX_SGIX_swap_barrier, GLX_SGIX_fbconfig
client glx vendor string: ATI
client glx version string: 1.3
client glx extensions:
    GLX_EXT_visual_info, GLX_EXT_visual_rating, GLX_EXT_import_context, 
    GLX_ARB_get_proc_address, GLX_ARB_multisample,
GLX_ATI_pixel_format_float, GLX_ATI_render_texture
