Xorg ATI Driver (working, but not fully)


I am running Suse 9.2 on some Sony Vaio computer. It has a Radeon videocard, so I installed the fglrx drivers on Xorg. However, when I switch my driver from "radeon" to "fglrx", the 3d acceleration (open gl) is gone. I do get TV-out using fglrx. When I use the radeon driver, I get an acceptable speed in glxgears, but I don't have any TV-out. Can anybody please help me with this?!

//edit: I got it fixed somehow. I'm not sure how I did it, but when I rebooted it started using the new modules instead of the mesa gl ones. Woohoo

Great going!

If you find out what the fix was in the future, please post them to this thread so other people can get help if they have the same problem.
