I just installed OpenSuSE 11 and have to say I'm impressed. I decided to use KDE 4 and it is slick.

The only issue I am having now is getting 3d acceleration to work. Glxinfo |grep rendering shows

direct rendering: No

This card is an older ATI card and not supported with the ATI corp drivers. I know the card is supported with the kernel drivers as I had 3d acceleration working under Gentoo Linux.

Below is my xorg.conf. Any suggestions on how to get this to work would be appreciated. The FAQ's states in OS11 this all should work out of the box..
