I guess you need to have sources of the kernel installed, then become root, then switch runlevel to 3 (telinit 3 or init 3), then run the installer (bash ati-driver-installer*.run) and follow what it says to you. If you succeed fgl_glxgears should work.

Good luck during this dirty work   Wink

To tell the truth I have an ATI card too but I don`t use their driver. I replaced "vesa" with "ati" in xorg.conf and it works fine without all this commotion. But if you really need 3D acceleration you have to try.

Thank you for all.  Grin Grin I had install the driver as you wrote, and now it is ok!

It's strange... With Vector, the installation of driver, was better than OpenSuse or Ubuntu.  Wink
