    Angry opensuse 11 desktop effect issues

    I installed opensuse 11 on my laptop dell inspiron 9200
    ATI mobility 9600 graphcs card. While the basic functionality seem to work fine, I have been having a total unstable behaviour with 3d enabled (with ATI proprietary driver).
    1) suspend to ram does not work (with or without 3d)
    2) ctl+alt+backspace to restart (or go to console with
    ctl+alt+f1 and back) sends the laptop to a freeze and all I can do is to unplug. Nothing works.
    3) I installed torcs and when I run it, it crashes. or full video mode freezes the laptop
    Has anyone experienced any of the above ? Laptop freezes, so I don't know where to get logs. Any help is greatly appreciated
    here is my xorg.conf some parts

    I greatly appreciate any help. Has anyone installed OpenSuse 11 on a dell 9200 inspiron desktop ? or anyone with the dreaded ATI mobility (9600) chip ?
    thanks in advance
