    The radeon openSource driver version 6.13.0 in openSUSE Milestone-6 supports Mesa 7.8.1.

    Xorg-6.5 ? That number puzzles me. openSUSE-11.3 Milestone-6 supports 1.8.0.

    As for the 6.12.4 radeon opensource driver in openSUSE-11.2, I do not think it supports Mesa-7.8.1 nor xorg-1.8.0. One has to update the radeon open source driver.

    If referring to rpm versions, the xorg-x11-server version of 11.2 is 7.4-61.63.1 while that of 11.3 Milestone-6 is 7.5_1.8.0-6.1. And the radeon open source driver with 11.3 M6 (which is version 6.13.0) will support that.

    Yes, 7.5 was referring to the 7.5 rpm version.

    So if i have radeon driver 6.13, Xorg 7.5 and Mesa 7.8.1 then everything should work right?

    I don't know. What kernel version? How did you install those versions of radeon driver Xorg, Mesa? This is on what version of openSUSE ?

    This is on kernel 2.6.33.2, openSUSE 11.2 x86_64.


    I installed the 6.13 driver using the Xorg repository Index of /repositories/X11:/XOrg/openSUSE_11.2

    This is a non-official configuration, as are the various versions of the applications you refer to. It may or may not work. I can't say. I note milestone-6 is now using the 2.6.34 kernel. Whether that is relevant, I have no idea.

    But according to this:

    Code:
    OpenGL vendor string: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.
    OpenGL renderer string: Mesa DRI R600 (RV630 9588) 20090101  TCL
    OpenGL version string: 2.0 Mesa 7.8.1
    It should be working.

    Also, doing glxgears works fine too.
