    try using the newest ati drivers, just recently, they have actually *gasp* started working. I get anywhere between 1000-2000 fps on glxgears, and this is with a radeon 9000 with only 32 mb of VRAM. 3D games run fine at 800x600 both natively, and through cedega, which was about how well they ran under windows.

    Hi just tryed the new drivers and well big suprize they dont work! This is what i downloaded off the the ati site

    ati-driver-installer-8.19.10-i386.run

    In still getting about 170.00fps on gears. I have also tryed to run ut from the command line and got the following message

    Ian@linux:/usr/local/games/ut2004> sh ut2004
    WARNING: ALC_EXT_capture is subject to change!
    Xlib: extension "XiG-SUNDRY-NONSTANDARD" missing on display ":0.0".
    Either GL_EXT_bgra or glDrawRangeElements not supported- bailing out.

    History:

    Exiting due to error

    Does this mean anything to anyone?

    Have you compiled the kernel module?
    Do you have the "DRI" section with permission 0666 in the /etc/X11/xorg.conf?

    Maybe ati drivers are not that good, but as far as my personnal experience goes, I always succeded in making them work.

    When you type:
    Code:
    glxinfo
    Does it say that "direct rendering" is "on" ?

    Nope, 3D is not working for you...
    direct rendering: No

    According to this, it seems pretty straith-forward:
    http://www.suse.de/~sndirsch/ati-installer-HOWTO.html

    So Suse 10.0 ?

    By doing
    Code:
    ./ati-driver-installer-8.19.10-i386.run --help
    and this:
    Code:
    fakeroot ./ati-driver-installer-8.19.10-i386.run --get-supported
    it tells me that you can build a package for Suse with this:

    Code:
    fakeroot ./ati-driver-installer-8.19.10-i386.run --buildpkg SuSE/SUSE100-IA32
    *************
    Before going further, uninstall the ati driver that you have now.
    *************

    Then you'll get a package like this:
    "fglrx_6_8_0_SUSE100-8.19.10-1.i386.rpm"

    When installing it:
    Code:
    sudo rpm -Uhv fglrx_6_8_0_SUSE100-8.18.8-1.i386.rpm
    ...it will build the kernel module as well.

    Then you need to configure the driver with SaX2, check out in:
    /usr/share/doc/packages/fglrx/README.SuSE

    Then to install the kernel module use the script generated by fglrx_6_8_0_SUSE100-8.18.8-1.i386.rpm:
    Code:
    sudo ./fglrx-kernel-build.sh
    Of course, every time you do an update or a security update regarding the kernel, you will need to run again "fglrx-kernel-build.sh".

    This is just meant to be of some help, I don't have Suse, so I didn't try it, but it makes perfect sense. (Remember to configure /etc/X11/xorg.conf properly.)
