OpenGL renderer string: MOBILITY RADEON X600 Generic OpenGL version string: 1.3.5010 (X4.3.0-8.12.10) (obviously it will show your card) Then you can try glxgears... Worked like a charm.

I've installed the drivers this way before. Open up a console and type the following: rpm --import ftp://download.nvidia.com/novell/repodata/repomd.xml.key Now let's add the YUM repository, by opening YaST and clicking on "Software" and then on the "Installation Source".

I'll wait untilSuse says something on their web-site re fglrx and 9.2The ATI Radeon 9800 does actually work quite well in 2D with the defaultdriver - even hooked to the screen Reboot. in interpid for waht ever reason i cannot activate my driver...i hit activate and enter my password but nothing happens... this contact form The solution it seems is to go into YaST2 -> system -> /etc/sysconfig Editor and add usbcore, ehci_hcd and uhci_hcd (yours may be different.) to system -> kernel -> INITRD_MODULES.

Anyway...just keep googling it for now. Took a few tries to get theinstall to 'take hold'. I'm not sure about how the fglrx rpm works...I have nvidia cards in my machines. navigate here any way i can try this without a reinstall?
