ATI Driver


Hi,

I have a Compaq Presario Notebook with an ATI Mobility Radeon 9000/9100 IGP 128MB video card which I can not get working with the latest SUSE 10.1.

I canít seem to view OpenGL screensavers and I have installed the proprietary ATI driver for my card but glxgears only ticks over at 190fps.

I have always been a SUSE user and have never experienced this problem

SuSE kind of "broke" SAX2 in the latest release...

That said, sounds like your system is not set to use the ATI drivers, nor AGP, most likely.

What does your xorg.conf file (located at /etc/X11/xorg.conf)look like???

Hi JaseP,
Sorry for the delay in replying, I did a fresh install again to see if anything changed but it didn't.

Here is the file you asked to see... sorry it's a bit long.
