| HI there, I have gotten the fglrx drivers working in 9.1. They are a
| flakey in Tribes2 but otherwise fine. Your first error was to run the
| fglrxconfig. You should have run the following:
| #sax2 -r -m 0=fglrx -b /usr/X11R6/lib/sax/profile/firegl.
| Then I do:
| #pico /etc/X11/XF86Config and add the line
| #Load "dri"
| Furthermore, you might want to install the "km_dri" module via YaST.

I got rid of the ati version of the driver and am back to the config
installed by yast. Right now I can't get the SUSE version to compile, in
order to do the sax2 stuff... Your email didn't say if you installed
the suse version or the ati ones?
