I ran "aticonfig", after which things work.

Sadly, the FPS for glxgears is significantly worse than it was with the
driver that comes bundled with openSUSE 11.1. Oddly enough, though,
Stellarium reports a much higher FPS than it did under the previous
driver. Celestia seems faster, too, but I don't see an option to enable
an FPS display in that app, so I have only a subjective sense based on
just a little prior use.

I guess I'll install Google Earth and see how that behaves. It's the
thing (besides Second Life) for which I have the best feel for 3D
