how to get dri working with ATI radeon xpress 200m

The goal of this is to get the output of 'glxinfo|grep direct' to say:
"Direct rendering: yes" instead of no.

My graphics card is a ati radeon xpress 200m and I am using the radeon driver for X. The man page for radeon says that my card is supported. I am on suse 10 x86_64. The kernel module fglrx is loaded.

Does anyone know how to get direct rendering working. Or in which direction to point me? I think it has some thing to do with Mesa.
I compiled mesa with 'make linux-dri-x86-64' and did the make install thing. How come the output of glxinfo|grep direct doesn't say yes?

This document, although gentoo related, might help you: (it helped me)

You need to load, in this order: agpgart, [nameofchipset]_agp, fglrx. once this is done, you need to fill the kernel dependencies (such as installing the right kernel/modules), and you are usually done.

Oh, it's has to be the right chipset agp driver, otherwise, it won't work. You need to load the ati agp module is it's a IGP card. check lspci if you aren't sure
