    Default Anyone successfully installed ATI 9.10 driver in RC1 ?

    ATI launched the latest 9.10 graphic driver,heard that it support the latest kernel. Anyone successfully installed on integrated ATI Radeon HD3200 graphic card? Mind share the tutorial?
    Dell Latitude D620~Intel Core2Duo T2300 1.66GHz~Intel 945GM~DDR2 667 2GB~openSUSE 12.1 KDE x86.

    I tried creating an rpm but it always failed with the quite generic error message "Package build failed"

    Eventually I found a way to create the rpm package (my preferred way of installing!):

    1. download the 9.10 driver package
    2. run it as root so it decompresses its contents
    3. copy the created (temporary) directory and close the program afterwards
    4. inside <fglrx-install>/packages/SuSE/ati-packager.sh, change line 94 from
      Code:
      rpmbuild -bb --root ${TmpDrvFilesDir} --target ${ARCH} ${TmpPkgSpec} > ${TmpPkgBuildOut} 2>&1
      to
      Code:
      rpmbuild -bb --buildroot ${TmpDrvFilesDir} --target ${ARCH} ${TmpPkgSpec} > ${TmpPkgBuildOut} 2>&1
    5. execute
      Code:
      <fglrx-install>/packages/SuSE/ati-packager.sh --buildpkg SUSE112-AMD64

    that generated the rpm for me... hopefully it works for you as well

    Thank you very much NicoK I was having the same issue with the 9.10 driver and could generate the .rpm following these steps.

    I'm having a newb issue however, if this is the right place to ask. I installed the generated rpm with Yast and restarted, but it still seems to use the vesa driver. How do I configure X to use the new driver instead? This is my xorg.conf:

    Code:
    # /.../

    If you don't need any special settings, you could (probably) just delete the xorg.conf as X.Org nowadays automatically configures most things and afaik this chooses the "fglrx" driver. (I, for example, only use the xorg.conf to set up my dual-head - and for this I changed the file generated by the amdcccle tools that comes with the fglrx drivers).

    If you want to stick with your settings, just change
    Driver "radeonhd"
    to
    Driver "fglrx"
    in the Device section

    I did that and set the Driver to fglrx. However, the driver still doesn't seem to be used (rendering performance is the same and OpenGL desktop effects still can't be enabled) and I also seem to be getting an "AMD Unsupported hardware" sticker in the lower right corner of the screen (like this).

    Package build failed!

    =========
    driver is ati-driver-installer-9-10-x86.x86_64.run downloaded from ATI page...

    Any ideas how to proceed?
    I'm able to install default driver (sh ./ati-driver-installer-9-10-x86.x86_64.run), but then I have some strange problem with BOINC program (segmentation violation in /usr/lib64/libaticaldd.so)

    this issue is with released 11.2

    Thanks,
    H99

    After the mentioned modification in ati-packager.sh You need to go two levels up so You are in the main directory of extracted fglrx.

    From there run:
    ati-installer.sh --test --buildpkg SuSE/SUSE112-IA32

    The "test" parameter is irrelevant from the installer point of view but don't know why he expects the buildpkg command to be the second parameter.

    Anyway after doing this You should be good to go with a properly generated RPM package, at least it worked in my case

    according to the release notes of the catalyst 9.11 drivers:
    Note: The ATI Radeon HD 3870 X2 series of product is currently not supported by the ATI Catalyst Linux software suite.
    I'm afraid, in that case, I cannot really help you

    I generated a (new) script that does all the mentioned steps automatically with the new 9.11 catalyst - see Generating catalyst 9.11 rpm's on openSUSE 11.2 - openSUSE Forums

    For those curious about the 9.11 drivers, these are hand typed extracts (by yours truly) from the latest posting of AMDs Proprietary Linux driver. Any typographical or other mistakes in retyping are mine. This particular driver updates the software version to 8.671. It is also known as revision 9.11.

    This release of ATI Catalyst Linux introduces support for the following new operating system:
    RHEL 5.4 support
    openSUSE 11.2 early look support

    Resolved Issues

    The following section provides a brief description of resolved issues with the latest version of the ATI Catalyst Linux software suite. These include:
    [Ubuntu 9.04] Animated busy mouse cursor no longer disappears or flickers in Clone mode
    Corruption no longer occurs after hot plugging a display and doing a Virtual Terminal switch
    With CrossFire enabled, system no longer becomes unresponsive when switching to DC (battery) mode with full-screen applications running
    [SUSE 11.1] Unplugging the secondary display and terminating the X server (Ctrl + Alt + Backspace) does not cause the primary display to become blank and display corruption
    Playing full screen Flash video on a secondary display no longer causes screen corruption
    Screen corruption no longer occurs when open GL screen saver is enabled with Desktop effects

    Known Issues

    The following section provides a brief description of known issues associated with the latest version of ATI Catalyst Linux software suite. These issues include:
    Segmentation fault may occur or system may display error during boot up if X is stopped in Dual-Head mode
    System may be unresponsive after executing specific combination of Xrandr reflections and rotations
    X server may fail to start GUI Desktop Manager after enabling secondary adapter using Catalyst Control Center
    Desktop resolution changes through Catalyst Control Center might not be applied after restarting X
    [Ubuntu 9.04] Some video cards may stop video output signal when monitor has been powered off.

    Note: On Novells openSUSE, SLED, and SLES operating systems running sax2 or sax2 r on the console overwrites the X.Org configuration file xorg.conf, reverting changes made by running aticonfig initial . As a result subsequent X session may start up using the open source Radeon on X-Vesa graphic drivers instead of the proprietary ATI Linux Graphics Driver.

    Solution: Do not use Sax2 when the proprietary Linux Graphics Driver is installed. Instead configure all display parameters using the Catalyst Control Center Linux Editon or the aticonfig command line interface.
