After looking at your X config file it's appears the drim flat out fails. What version of mesa libs Do you have installed? You might also have a look at and perhaps post the results of:
Same as yours.
The "Flag" section in my X file is after the "Modules" are called up (though X doesn't always rely a specific sequence to init certain subsections. But you might want to see if it makes a difference - the X error log you attach seems to indicates that the XF86Config file may be misconfiged. ...
Unfortunately, no change if I put the flag section after the module section.
Getting and optimizing the X radeon drivers can be dicey at best. XFree86 has also been all but out right abandoned by many in Linux because of political and license questions. "X.org" is a splinter org from X and is getting a fair amount of attention from the distros because it has a more open license, a few of the original devs from XF86, and is also adopting a more open development model that should result in faster development related to community involvement. Unlocking the features of the ATI RV250 (9200?) using XF86 radeon drivers is not a guarantee that you performance will be viable for 3D games or advanced model development. However if used for somthing like a lite CAD, simple Linux 3D game/program or similar it might suffice.
I don't do gaming, just wanted to do a bit of OpenGL on my spare time, according to my research the radeon 9200 (not SE) is the most powerful 3D card for which one can get open source drivers, but for the SE version it looks like waiting for a new release is needed.
I used Xorg with Fedora Core, I've seen that there's a version for SuSE 9.1 on ftp.suse.com (piles of RPMs), has anyone tried it? Will rpm -Uvh work, or will it break everything?
Thank you very much for your help so far,
