    Exclamation Dell Inspiron 1521 + OpenSUSE 11.0

    Hello.

    I have a Dell Inspiron 1521 (ATI Radeon Xpress 1270) and finished installation of OpenSUSE 11.0 (AMD64). Graphics won't work. Any problem with this graphic card?. It's compatible?.

    Regards.

    P.S.: Sorry for my bad english. 8)

    Does your X (GUI) start or are you loading to the text console?

    Ifso, you could try installing the latest driver from the ATI site : Drivers & Software

    Also see here for helpful hints and tips : ATI - openSUSE
    (when installing the driver yourself, not using the one-click, you are doing it 'the hard way' as referred to on the howto page)

    Hope that helps,
    Wj

    Ok. It's works.
    1) Ctrl+Alt+F1 and login as "root"
    2) "init 3"
    3) cp ati-*.bin /home/me
    4) sh ati-*.bin and follow instructions
    5) sax2 -r -m 0=fglrx
    6) "init 5"
    ...and done.

    Thanks.
