    X Error of failed request:  BadRequest (invalid request code or no such operation)
      Major opcode of failed request:  145 (GLX)
      Minor opcode of failed request:  19 (X_GLXQueryServerString)
      Serial number of failed request:  15
      Current serial number in output stream:  15
    However, it seems to be known:
    A lot of pages to read though...

    EDIT: Oh right, I just had to follow the advice in the 2nd post here! It works! Yay! Have to try it out. As far as I've seen, it doesn't cause screen corruption! Eff yeah!
    Hi guys!

    I was having the same problem, but now is working!

    Steps to sucess...
    1. Install the lastest version of Catalyst (8.561-1)
    2. Run on terminal: aticonfig --initial
    3. Install gcc and kernel-source from Yast2
    4. Run on terminal:
    5. Restart X
    6. Enjoy

    Some information:

    OpenGL version string: 2.1.8304 Release

    [email protected]:~/Desktop> glxgears
    7695 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1538.933 FPS
    7982 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1595.943 FPS
    8223 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1643.768 FPS
    7541 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1508.030 FPS

    Good luck!

      I'd recommend a bit different steps:

      1. Install these packages from Yast2
      2. Install the lastest version of Catalyst (8.561-1)
      3. Run on terminal: aticonfig --initial -f
      5. Restart X
      6. Enjoy

      As if you install those classes earlier, you no longer need to run Kernel Build - it's run automatically. And -f parameter prevents conflicts with RadeonHD and earlier FGLRX versions.
