Well, the problem is that what I get from glxgears is (average):

Can someone help to improve this installation?
You might try unloading the agpgart mod and then edit the XF86Config-4 and
change a line in the "ATI device section" to "yes" if it says no:
Option "UseInternalAGPGART" "yes"
This tells the driver to use it's own internal coding for the agp interface.
If that doesn't work or shows no real change then recompile the drivers to
use the intermal interface - in fact it maybe this way already and the
agpgart mod is a problem. By the way the drivers option are between the
fglrx and the radeon. While the fglrx drivers are composed of the ati driver
and kernel mod vs the radeon kmod and the fx86glx driver the radeon kernel
mod uses fx86glx for hardware accel. If one is going to use the radeon
driver with xf86glx then agpgart is probably advisable to start with, however
the ATI km_fglrx and fglrx drivers have their own agp interface and I think
that using agpgart mod here is causing the slow down.
If you do recompile the km_fglrx then both run "fglrxconfig" and re-install
the glx drivers. I gather that you got the 3.7.0 drivers from the suse
ftp ../Supplementary/X/XFree86/ATI/suse90/fglrx/3.7.0 dir.
