Suse 9.1 and ATI 3.9.0 Driver Solution
After fiddling around with my system (like i always have to after a new driver release)

and using Mythos' tarball (from the 3.9.0 sticky at it finally works.

Here's what I did:

1. Get Ati's drivers at

2. Enter the directory where you downloaded the drivers.

3. Install the ATI drivers with rpm -Uvh fglrx*.rpm

4. Get Mythos' tarball at

5. Enter directory where you downloaded the tarball

6. Follow his instructions on how to build the module:

a) tar -xjvf build_mod-3.9.0-regparm.tar.bz2
b) Get into build_mod-3.9.0-regparm
d) cp 2.6.x/fglrx.ko /lib/modules/2.6.4-54.5-default/kernel/drivers/char/drm (this copies the module to the right directory ...overwrite the existing)

7. depmod -a

8. sax2 -r -m 0=fglrx -b /usr/X11R6/lib/sax/profile/firegl

9. To Enable 3D support edit /etc/X11/XF86Config with your favorite editor and add
Load "dri"
to Section "Module"

10. reboot

Instead of steps 8-9 you can of course run fglrxconfig. Although I have a KT 400 chipset I'm running the external AGP this time (as done beside other changes,by sax2 with step 8) and it works ok so far.
