You have to be patience. Early Night time, is when you get the best responses.

I run suse, 9.2 and 3d acceleration is not really supported.

3D is most definitely supported!

You have a choice of two routes: downloading ATI's proprietary drivers, or using the open-source drivers. To use the open source drivers you will need to recompile the kernel, making sure you include the ATI/Radeon module for DRI, and you will need to compile mesa and to enable 3D acceleration for the Radeon chipset. If you use the search feature (the top of this page) you will find many threads linking to various howtos on other sites, and even complete instructions posted on this site already.
