Radeon 9500 in suse 8.2 pro

Hi, i have a readeon 9500 pro, and i'm running suse 8.2 pro and xfree86 4.3.0. Now, i found out that suse didn't include the proper drivers. I followed the instructions to the letter, but things like 3d rendering still don't work, can anyone help me get it working, thanks a lot, iggy.

Download the XFree86-4.3.0 firegl driver from schneider-digital, you'll have to rebuild the kernel module so make sure you have your kernel source installed and read the instructions contained in the package before you start.
I have a 9800 pro and it works perfectly with this driver.

Ditto to Aussie.

You can find my Member Success story for this I'm running an ATI Radeon 9000 pro card, and it works great with these drivers.

It's pretty straightforward, just make sure you have the sources for your kernel.

use "uname -r" to find out what kernel you're running, then head on to and grab the source
