3d is broken by ATI in the 8-12 release. Go back and download the 8-9
driver from:

http://ati.amd.com/support/drivers/linux64/radeonprevious-linux64.html

Then build the rpm with:

ati-driver-installer-8-9-x86.x86_64.run --buildpkg <choose from below>

SuSE/SLED10-IA32
SuSE/SLES10-IA32
SuSE/SLED10-AMD64
SuSE/SLES10-AMD64
SuSE/SUSE102-IA32
SuSE/SUSE103-IA32
SuSE/SUSE110-IA32
SuSE/SUSE102-AMD64
SuSE/SUSE103-AMD64
SuSE/SUSE110-AMD64

You will need kernel sources installed.

If you have suse 11.1, then you are stuck with the 8-12 driver until
the 9-1
driver is released sometime this month :-(

On openSuSE 10.3 and 11.0, the 8-9 driver is a helluva lot faster than
8-10
through 8-12 by about 45%.
