    Default ATI Radeon X1950 Closed Source Driver

    I installed the driver from the ATI Website. I downloaded it, got the dependancies and then I generated the Installer for OpenSUSE 10.3 (Not 11.0 Packages). I then installed the rpm and ran:

    Code:
    aticonfigure --initial -f
    Then:

    Code:
    sax2 -r -m 0=fglrx
    I rebooted, but when I run fglrxinfo this is the output;

    Code:
    display: :0.0  screen: 0
    OpenGL vendor string: Mesa project: www.mesa3d.org
    OpenGL renderer string: Mesa GLX Indirect
    OpenGL version string: 1.4 (2.1 Mesa 7.0.3)
    And here is xorg.conf

    Never mind, I upgraded to the new drivers which have 11.0 support. These work perfectly.
