(WW) fglrx(0): *********************************************** (WW) fglrx(0): * DRI initialization failed! * (WW) fglrx(0): * (maybe driver kernel module missing or bad) * (WW) fglrx(0): * 2D acceleraton available (MMIO) * (WW) fglrx(0): * no 3D acceleration available * (WW) fglrx(0): ********************************************* * Ive seen lots of these around the web but not an opensuse solution to it? For the record:- Opensuse 11.2 64Bit Kernel 2.6.31.5 compiled 9.12 catalyst driver from AMD webiste ATI 4830 PCI-E card X0rg 7.4 (or whatever the 11.2 version is) ps i dont do SAX2 at the moment as its not recomeded in the ATI install notes (Distributions)
