New ATI fglrx driver working, but no accel. because of NVIDIA remnants?

Hello Everyone:
I got the ATI driver fglrx driver installed and am running x through it right now. Problem is: there's no acceleration: every time I run a program with acceleration I get the following error:
(this example is for the space simulator Celestia).

eduardo@german:~> celestia
celestia: /usr/lib/ no version information available (required by /usr/lib/tls/
celestia: relocation error: /usr/lib/tls/ symbol _nv000060gl, version LIBGLCORE not defined in file with link time reference

(Ive tried both 3.9X and 4.X versions of the ati driver, same results)

Now, before I installed the ati driver I was using the NVIDIA driver for a GEforce FX 5200 card. I didn't uninstall this, because of so many dependencies I would also have had to uninstall.

Based on the error, I can only assume that something from the NVIDIA driver is interfering with the ATI driver, but then again, who knows....
Machine: Suse 9.1 , Athalon 1.8.

Can anyone help?

(I've searched this forum for similar, which is how I managed to get the driver installed at all. My current problem I've yet to see anywhere on here...)
