Hello Listmates,

Doesn't work for me either, but I'm on SUSE 10.3 rather than 11 and
using the build from the ati repo for 10.3, so maybe it's not relevant.

I had posted this a few weeks back on my issue with the ATI driver. I built
and installed mine as a distro specific per the ATI instructions. My DRI
didn't work either which kept the 3D from working. In fact, the xgl stuff
over all seemed pretty messed up.

I'm running a X64 installation using 11.1. I found that it was referencing the
32 bit location instead of the 64 bit. This is an ATI issue not a SuSE.

This is my work around fix if it helps....
/var/log/xorg.0.log error in calling /usr/lib/dri/ when using a 64
bit system  

Delete the /usr/lib/dri/ and assign a link to the x64 version...
then check it with ls -ls

15  cd /usr/lib/dri/
   16  rm
   17  ln -s /usr/lib64/dri/
   18  ls -ls
   19  init 3
