I've installed Suse 9.1 on a Dell Inspiron 8600 (with ATI Mobility Radeon 9600 PRO Turbo card and 1920x1200 laptop display panel). Sax2 wouldn't recognize the 1900x1200 panel, so I googled a bit and managed to put together an XF86Config file (attached) that works quite well using the unaccelerated "radeon" driver.

Then I decided to install the latest version of the ATI 3.9.0 driver available from Suse's ftp site following instructions in the README. Driver installs successfully, however when I run
"sax2 -r -m 0=fglrx -b /usr/X11R6/lib/sax/profile/firegl", the screen goes blank, then parts of the screen go white, then green, :-) , at which moment I usually kill Sax with Ctrl-Shift-Backspace, and it exists generating the attached log file. The log says a) "DRI initialization failed"; and b) there are lots of unresolved symbols. I've already fixed error messages about MTRR overlaps using instructions from
