AMD fglrx driver not working

Hi, a recent kernel-upgrade from 3.9.X to 3.10.X kind of broke my video drivers. Im using the proprietary AMD catalyst driver.

The driver seems to be loaded and work fine but it gives me poor performance in gnome3 (Before the kernel-upgrade everything was very smooth). Fallbackmode works fine, though.

Gnome's Systemdetails show VESA: PITCAIRN as the driver.

$ uname -a
Linux tim-fedora 3.10.7-100.fc18.x86_64 #1 SMP Thu Aug 15 22:21:29 UTC 2013 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux


$ lspci | grep
  VGA01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI Pitcairn PRO [Radeon HD 7800]

$ LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose fglrxinfo: pastebin/rFEhQhs5

$ cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf: pastebin/5RBSfV26

$ cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log: pastebin/zF7ewGzJ

My kernel commandline:

/vmlinuz-3.10.7-100.fc18.x86_64 root=/dev/mapper/fedora-root ro rd.lvm.lv=fedora/swap rd.md=0 rd.dm=0  rd.luks=0 rd.lvm.lv=fedora/root vconsole.keymap=de rhgb LANG=de_DE.UTF-8 radeon.modeset=0 rd.driver.blacklist=radeon

Thanks in advance!
