==Verify with ATI tools==
+
If the installation has worked, then any 3D application should work without issue.  A simple way to verify without any possibility of failure is to verify the following occurs.  Please note that you may have needed to go through [[:Category:Distributions|distribution specific]] process to enable the 3D support. 
+
===fglrxinfo===
+
<pre>
+
$ fglrxinfo
+
display: :0.0  screen: 0
+
OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc.
+
OpenGL renderer string: Radeon X1600 Series
+
OpenGL version string: 2.1.7415 Release
+
</pre>
+
 
+
If the vendor string is "Mesa", the driver wouldn't configure properly the /etc/X11/xorg.conf .Please see the [[Troubleshooting|Troubleshooting]] page.
+
 
+
===fgl_glxgears===
+
You can also run the ATI provided application called fgl_glxgears which should show a spinning cube with the venerable glxgears running on each face.
+
 
+
<b>If you run fgl_glxgears and the cube spins but is lacking any cogs on the faces, the faces being instead various shades of blue and/or you get an error message like:</b>
+
+
<pre>
+
Using GLX_SGIX_pbuffer
+
913 frames in 5.0 seconds = 182.600 FPS
+
783 frames in 5.0 seconds = 156.600 FPS
+
X Error of failed request:  BadDrawable (invalid Pixmap or Window parameter)
+
  Major opcode of failed request:  14 (X_GetGeometry)
+
  Resource id in failed request:  0x0
+
  Serial number of failed request:  51
+
  Current serial number in output stream:  51
+
</pre>
+
 
+
<b>Then your installation most presumably failed!</b>

==Verify with Linux tools==
+
===glxinfo===
+
This command line option should report "direct" rendering.
+
$ glxinfo | grep direct
+
 
+
(For Debian 4.0, install the mesa-utils package to get glxinfo.)
+
 
+
===Xorg.0.log===
+
The X.org X server log file also contains useful information to verify installation was successful. It is located on most Linux distributions at <code>/var/log/Xorg.0.log</code> and can be opened by any text editor.
