r300 sf is outdated and r300 support is in mesa since quite a time.
You should have dri with r300 in edgy outof the box uninstall
you own compiled dri/drm module and make sure ubuntu one
are used.

Then check xorg log for direct rendering enabled if not check for
WW or EE and see what glxinfo report, you may try
LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose glxinfo
to have more information in case that fail.

All this informations and much more are on dri.freedesktop.org.
