    I wonder that you have only "software rasterizer" with your card and the
    radeon driver. I will investigate a bit if it is possible to make dri work
    with radeon and the hd3650, I would guess that can solve your problem (the
    effect should be that your opengl version is increased to 2.x instead of the
    1.4 which is now in effect).

    Yes, my Direct rendering is not enabled. I tried to put the following lines in my xorg.conf file without success.

    Section "DRI"
    Group "video"
    Mode 0660
    EndSection

    Can you post the content of /var/log/Xorg.0.log to http://susepaste.org/ and
    give us the link here to see what Xorg tries ans says during startup?

    Hey Martin,
    Here are the links:
    SUSE Paste
    SUSE Paste

    You'll probably suggest a better xorg.conf file. Radeon doesn't seem to be loaded in the var/log. lsmod | grep radeon returs:
    radeon 1097742 1
    ttm 74373 1 radeon
    drm_kms_helper 36694 2 radeon,i915
    drm 232019 4 radeon,ttm,i915,drm_kms_helper
    i2c_algo_bit 6246 2 radeon,i915


    Let me know if you need more info. Thanks a lot

    As a very first step you can do the following simple test. Remove your
    xorg.conf completely by renaming it to something else (xorg.conf.old for
    example) and restart the X server (since 11.3 Xorg does no longer need a
    xorg.conf), Xorg will then try to find the best solution during startup. See
    if it does a good job there is nothing to loose and post the log file after
    you did that (in case everything goes wrong just rename the file back to
    xorg.conf and restart again).
    Check also what glxinfo says without xorg.conf.

    If it turns out that the X server starts with radeon when no xorg.conf is
    present but you still have software rasterizer add the following two lines
    Code:
    Load "dri"
    Load "dri2"
    to /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-device.conf

    Installing fglrx the way I suggested in your other thread is absolutely easy and many people have no problem doing so. You started with the wrong method, then messed up with different ATI drivers and finally decide to stick to the radeon driver? Is that right?

    This is the glxinfo output on a system running the proprietary ATI driver:

    Code:
    OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc.
    OpenGL renderer string: ATI Mobility Radeon HD 2400 XT
    OpenGL version string: 3.3.10834 Compatibility Profile Context
    OpenGL extensions:
    All you need to get it to work is to run atiupgrade - and nothig else! - just after a fresh installation, provided you have a network connection in order to install the script and all the packages needed (which are installed automatically as they are included in atiupgrade dependencies). It's not impossible that simply typing atiupgrade as root will install the driver properly right now (you didn't tell me)... in other words, it should, but I'm unable to tell how it will handle the different drivers you installed in the meantime.

    openSUSE Forums - ATI driver with atiupgrade

    Read this article carefully (it doesn't mean that you have to understand or read the code) and apply this method next time.

    @Martin. Thanks Martin, I will try it.
    @PTA thanks again for your comment. The xorg.conf that I sent is the default xorg.conf (I just copied it from xorg.conf_install), I didn't install any driver but fglrx. Now, I realized that I shouldn't have probably followed this link (SDB:ATI drivers - openSUSE). When it didn't work out, I removed fglrx and came back to the inital Xorg and I thought the default will take care of it. Now, I will try again to install fglrx your way. Is the new produced Xorg.conf file going to take care of my laptop devices i.e. screen, driver ?

    atiupgrade will run aticonfig --initial to add a device section for fglrx in /etc/X11/xorg.conf. If this section is already present, it won't. If /etc/X11/xorg.conf doesn't exist, it will create one.
