SuSE 9.1 low FPS rate on OpenGL screensavers

I have a dell inspiron 5150 with 32mb of radeon 9000 graphics memory, 256mb ram, and a 3.06ghz processor.

Using fedora 1 or fedora 2 all openGL screensavers work fine. With SuSE 9.1 personal my frames per second are around 7. When i enable 3d support it brings it up to about 30 but actually looks worse because the screen keeps flashing. Shouldn't the frames per second be well over 100? does anyone know why it does this, or any possible solutions? thanks.

I have an Nvidia card, and 3d related stuff runs better or only runs with the proper linux driver, maybe Ati has a linux driver available? If so, install it and try again.
