Kudos to AMD/ATI.

This is the 1st time since SuSE 9.0, I have ever had the ATI driver work out-of-the-box (referencing openSUSE 11.0 and my old x86-64 laptop with a builtin M10 card & 17 in LCD and the GO1 driver on the repro).

And, I'm getting 3450 FPS on glxgears; best ever

Perfect.

Thanks ATI, Well Done
