All,

According bug: https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=465051

The side effect of the symlink fix is.
<qoute>
Sure you can set a symlink from /usr/lib/dri/fglrx_dri.so to
/usr/lib64/dri/fglrx_dri.so, but this breaks 3D acceleration
for any 32bit applications.

This might help people who want/need to use the closed source driver in
openSuSE 11.1 64.

I see the following error in /var/log/Xorg.0.log

drmOpenByBusid: drmGetBusid reports PCI:3:0:0

The problem is that it tries to use the 32 libs library in stead of the 64
bits.
I solved the problem by:
mv /usr/lib/dri/fglrx_dri.so /usr/lib/dri/fglrx_dri.so.org
ln -s /usr/lib64/dri/fglrx_dri.so /usr/lib/dri/fglrx_dri.so

Joop.
