The driver used by x is determined in its device section in you /etc/X11/xorg.conf or your /etc/X11/XF86Config depending on what version of X you have. Try checking that.

I checked the saxsave, which should be the one that xorg is using... (im using xorg apparently) the driver name is radeon, but the funny thing is that yast detected two drivers in x11, both named radeon... xD
