glxgears, fgl_glxgears run, but no "picture" or "stagnant" picture

recently purchased all new equipment (home built pc):
motherboard and processor - AMD FX6100, Motherboard is GA-78LMT-S2P Socket AM3+ 760G mATX AMD
16 gig memory,
Radeon HD 6450 video.

Motherboard has the "Onboard Graphic Chipset ATI Radeon 3000" Onboard video is disabled in BIOS.

Operating system OpenSuSE 12.2 (up to date) I have dual screens setup, downloaded and installed Catalyst 13.1 from AMD, it installed no problems.

If I run fglrxinfo:
display: :0 screen: 0 OpenGL vendor string: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. OpenGL renderer string: AMD Radeon HD 6450 OpenGL version string: 4.2.12002
Compatibility Profile Context 9.012

Issue that I am having: when testing with fgl_glxgears it does popup the gearbox window, but I get no image unless I click on the title bar. Then it immediately stops, until I click again. The image will stay "static" unless I "grab" the window title bar and keep dragging it around the screen. This is the only way to keep the gears moving (visually), once I stop the mouse, the gears "stop", I say visually because the terminal keeps spitting out fps. This also happens with any games that I try. Videos work with no problems, so not sure what may be going on. Tried the same with glxgears, exactly the same results.

Any help is appreciated,

Thanks, Anthony

I have solved this problem, but will only post a link to another page on which I solved this. Too much going on through the day trying to figure this out to repost all steps involved.

Needless to say, the solution is on the link provided, I hope it helps others.
