    hello thank you very much for your help I have the ATI Radeon 9000 series. I just glance the link you mention and it looks the answer it may be there.
    I just have to figure out how I am going to be able to read the display but it's okay it's no problem. Thank you very much. I will post back when I get the results.

    lynx is a terminal web browser that you can use from failsafe mode since it's taking you to a terminal.
    Code:
    zypper in lynx
    then just "lynx" to run. Use Ctrl+G to change the URL of the page, Ctrl+Q to quit, arrow keys move to the next link, space bar and page down move the page down a frame, Esc will move you out of any text fields. Tab will move you to the next text field or link.

    Which graphics drivers are you using?
    Vaio F11: i7-720QM 8GB RAM Nvidia GT 330m
    Win 7 Pro 64 bit | openSuse 11.4 64 bit | Arch Linux 64 bit

    it's the default driver that opensuse uses from a fresh install, I have not check yet because it's hard to read the output so until I used your recommendation I will be able to see it. thanks

    Hello,
    I am able to boot in the failsafe mode also I am able to use ICE window manager and
    here is the information I gather from Hardware Info.
    I am using the DRIVER:radeon, device RV350 NP, DEVICE Identifier 85584, Kernel driver:drm.

    Sax2 is no longer available in 11.4 so what do I use in 11.4 to configure the video card?

    please let me know and thank you very much.
