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
display: :0.0  screen: 0
OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc.
OpenGL renderer string: Radeon X1600 Series
OpenGL version string: 2.1.7415 Release
If the vendor string is "Mesa", the driver wouldn't configure properly the /etc/X11/xorg.conf .Please see the [[Troubleshooting|Troubleshooting]] page.
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>

It is assumed that you have completed the installation process.


Verify with Linux tools


This command line option should report "direct" rendering.

$ glxinfo | grep direct

(For Debian 4.0, install the mesa-utils package to get glxinfo.)


The X.org X server log file also contains useful information to verify installation was successful. It is located on most Linux distributions at /var/log/Xorg.0.log and can be opened by any text editor.

You can now move on to configuring the driver.
