calinit() crashes

I'm trying to run CAL with a HD3870 under RHEL 5 .1(x86_64) but I'm unable to execute the samples applications. Here is what happens when i launch hellocal:

[root@localhost lnx64]# ./hellocal
X Error of failed request:  BadRequest (invalid request code or no such operation)
  Major opcode of failed request:  0 ()
  Serial number of failed request:  8
  Current serial number in output stream: 8

The HD3870 is recognized in the Catalyst Control Center and I've installed the package compat-libstdc++-33-3.2.3-61.x86_64.rpm as it says in the readme_install.txt file.

After reading the topics: 32 bit Fedora 8 + Linux Brook and SDK 1.1 beta on ubuntu Hardy, I've also installed the package libxcb-1.1-4.fc9.x86_64.rpm and tried putting "export LIBXCB_ALLOW_SLOPPY_LOCK=true" before launching hellocal but I still get the same results...

If I take the code of the hellocal project and that I comment everything except the call to calinit(), I still get the same results. If I put a printf() just after calinit(), it isn't even printed so calinit() is just crashing for an unknow reason...

Any Idea?

Thanks for the help
