http://forums.opensuse.org – Hi, I have an ATI Radeon 9600 video card on openSUSE 11.2 and I wish to enable 3D acceleration to get all the eye-candy working. As I understand it, fglrx will not work because ATI has relegated support of this video card to the legacy driver, which does not support the latest version of X. This leaves me to use the open source radeon driver. 3D acceleration works here, but when I move windows around I get lines on my screen suggesting something wrong with the refresh rate. Are there any modifications I can make to my xorg.conf file so that I can get acceptable performance with this video card, or am I relegated to using NVidia video cards? Thanks in advance for your time and assistance. (Distributions)
