    Default Help installing ATI Drivers on 2.6.33

    Hi there,

    I recently (today) re-installed OpenSUSE onto my new SSD. In order to enable newer features of this drive, I upgraded from the default 2.6.31 kernel to the 2.6.33 kernel immediately. I rebooted, and the next thing on my "to-do" list was to install my proprietary ATI fglrx drivers.

    However, doing so through the repository calls for a dependency of ati-fglrxG02-kmp-desktop/default with is a Kernel Module, however, such a version only supports up to 2.6.31 (or so I seem to believe). Instead, I grabbed the newest Catalyst from ATI's website (at the time of this writing, 10.2) and tried to install it. I finished, and reboot and my mouse cursor was no where to be found.

    So, after invisi-clicking my way around to Firefox, I found some tips and tried adding "Option "HWCursor" "off"" to my xorg.conf and reboot again, to no avail.

    So I uninstalled everything, and retried, this time trying to create an RPM out of the .run file. I used --listpkg and then ran --buildpkg with SuSE/SUSE112-AMD64 or what have you and it then spat an error that that wasn't valid, despite being copied directly from their listpkg output.

    In short, I'm just looking for a way to get this stupid driver to work. I'll be upgrading to an NVidia graphics card ASAP but in the meantime I do need to get this working. Thanks!

    EDIT: Card is HD4850, forgot to mention that

    Nope. While I appreciate the link, I've already covered that aspect of my troubles. I need the fglrx driver, and I need it on a newer kernel than 2.6.31. I could use an older Catalyst version, if the newer ones are causing problems, but the only Catalyst I remember having problems was 9.11
