just an idea. Check if the /dev entry for your video card has the right permissions. For the nvidia board I observed that sometimes the entries (/dev/nvidia0 and/or /dev/nvidiactl) are crw------ instead of crw-rw-rw. Check if changing the permissions on these entries or changing the owner makes any difference.

good luck
