Ati Radeon 4850 driver error SuSE 11.2

Hi all,

I bought myself a Radeon 4850, but getting it to work in SuSE 11.2 is not going very well.

This is what happens,

I downloaded the appropriate driver shown here,

I also installed the minimal and the recommend system requirements as shown in the installation pdf from the ati driver site.

But after installation my videosystem runs very slow.

When i startup the catalyst control center ( only possible after a reboot) it shows no OpenGL information.

Xorg 7.4-35.3 is installed.

And i cant choose/activate some of the 3D options.
I think thats also the why reason my system runs so slow after installing the driver.

Any help very much appreciated. :slight_smile:

Sorry wrong thread.

Admin please move it to the proper place, thanks. :slight_smile:
