This is my first post at LQ and I want to thank you for your help in advance.
I recently bought an ATI HD-5450 video card and installed the Catalyst 12.6 driver since I'm using Slackware current; however, the OpenGL applications don't run well.
If I run glxgears or fgl_glxgears it just show a black window but when I move the window it shows the gears moving and when I stop moving the window the gears stop too. I also have this issue if I try to use blender, openarena, quakeforge and alienarena and I don't get any error or warning message. However, I can run yamagi-quake2 with no problem.
I have checked the X.Org log and dmesg. I had tried reinstalling the driver as an Slackware package and also directly with the .run file with no luck. I don't know where or what to check to find the issue.
I have a MSI-GF615-P33 motherboard, an AMD Phenom X6 2.8GHz and 4 GB RAM.
