Radeon Xpress 200M with ati 8.33.6 drivers HELP PLEASE


greetings,

I'm running the latest ATI drivers on Suse 10.2
I have the ATI Technologies Inc RC410 [Radeon Xpress 200M]
everything seems to be working fine except very slow performance I'm running beryl as my window manager and it's running but when doing multi tasking everything is very slow.... is there anyway I could speed things up?

also I have the following errors:
when executing fgl_glxgears I get the following:

Using GLX_SGIX_pbuffer
Xlib: extension "XFree86-DRI" missing on display ":0.0".
Error: couldn't get fbconfig

and glxinfo | grep direct
Xlib: extension "XFree86-DRI" missing on display ":0.0".
direct rendering: No

but when I cat Xorg.0.log | grep DRI
(II) Loading extension XFree86-DRI
(**) fglrx(0): Option "NoDRI" "no"
(**) fglrx(0): NoDRI = NO
(II) Loading extension ATIFGLRXDRI
(II) fglrx(0): doing DRIScreenInit
(II) fglrx(0): DRIScreenInit done
(II) fglrx(0): DRI initialization successfull!
(II) fglrx(0): [DRI] installation complete

so I'm a bit confused can anyone help me to resolve these errors please....

thanx

just grepping for DRI isn't too useful... you need to find the lines that start with "(EE)" and the contexual lines around them.

Radeon Xpress 200M with ati 8.33.6 drivers HELP PLEASE

thanx for your reply...

cat Xorg.0.log | grep "(EE)"
(WW) warning, (EE) error, (NI) not implemented, (??) unknown.
(EE) AIGLX error: dlsym for __driCreateNewScreen_20050727 failed (/usr/lib/dri/fglrx_dri.so: undefined symbol: __driCreateNewScreen_20050727)
(EE) AIGLX: reverting to software rendering

but this error is because the drivers don't support AIGLX yet... so it's not relevant to my problem ... I could fix this error by disabling AIGLX in xorg.conf... but when I do that my system sometimes hangs for some reason so I rather keep it there....

any more ideas... I would be very greatful

Ok.... I figured it out... I get this errors because XGL is enabled .... so to get rid of this errors
I have to disable XGL but then all the fun is gone... and from what I understand I can't get 3d accelration
with the open source drivers because it's broken for the Radeon Xpress 200M

So I'm stuck with slow performance
