    I ran the correct script and it's now building the rpm package. So it was my fault that it didn't work before because I downloaded the wrong script. I hope it works this time.

    The driver is partially working now - the graphics performance is much better then before. However CCC does not work. Also compositing does not seem to be working and when I try to run 'Personal Settings' > 'Desktop' it crashes with the following error:

    System Settings - The KDE Crash Handler

    We are sorry, System Settings closed unexpectedly.
    You can help us improve KDE Software by reporting this error.

    Details: Executable: systemsettings PID: 18073 Signal: 11 (Segmentation fault)


    When I run "ATI Catalyst Control Center" the error says:

    Initialization error

    There was a problem initializing Catalyst Control Center Linux edition. It could be caused by the following.

    No ATI graphics driver is installed, or the ATI driver is not functioning properly. Please install the ATI driver appropriate for you AIT hardware, or configure using aticonfig.


    I get the same error if I run "ATI Catalyst Control Center (Administrative)".

    When I press Ctrl + Alt + F12 to enable compositing the gui crashes to a black screen and I have to reboot.

    fglrxinfo also causes a seg fault:

    linux:/ # fglrxinfo
    Segmentation fault

    fglrxinfo also causes a seg fault:

    linux:/ # fglrxinfo
    Segmentation fault
    Is the fglrx kernel module loaded?
    Check this:
    Code:
    lsmod | grep fglrx
    The output of the above commands looks like this:
    Code:
    fglrx       2444606 28
    If this would not be even loaded, try this:
    Code:
    modprobe fglrx


    A radeon kernel module should not be loaded, the following commands should not be print out any line:
    Code:
    lsmod | grep radeon
    If the output of the above commands show a loaded radeon kernel module (if even a radeon blacklist exists), you should rebuild initram:
    Code:
    mkinitrd
    Good luck!

    Sebastian,
    Thanks for taking time to help out.

    I ran the commands as you suggested and at first the module was not loaded. I loaded it but I am still unable to run CCC or fglrxinfo, etc.

    linux:/ # lsmod | grep fglrx
    linux:/ # modprobe fglrx
    linux:/ # lsmod | grep fglrx
    fglrx 2444606 0
    linux:/ # fglrxinfo
    Segmentation fault

    I will try the other thing you suggested next.

    I forget to say that you need to reboot your computer. After this try it again.

    If you are in the console after reboot, you need a /etc/X11/xorg.conf:
    Code:
    aticonfig --initial

    Default Re: AMD driver *Solution* (tested and proven for openSuSE 11.3 GM!)

    Didn't work. I ran 'aticonfig --initial=dual-head' (I've tried just --initial also and it doesn't work) and then rebooted.

    Once X boots up both screens go black and the computer is locked hard (can't get to terminal or use ctrl+alt+backspace).

    To fix it I have to reboot into level 3 and move or delete /etc/X11/xorg.conf. Once I do that I can do 'init 5' and get into X, or reboot and it comes up normally.

    I ran the mkinitrd command earlier but it was taking forever so I didn't let it finish. I can try that again later if needed.

    After rebooting now the fglrx module is no longer loaded.

    I found out that some people have a trouble with KMS.
    Workaround: add permanently to your bootparameter: nomodeset

    And try it again with "modprobe fglrx" and "aticonfig --initial=dual" after reboot.

    I will release makerpm-ati Beta2 later. The script can disable permanently KMS with the variable NO_KMS_IN_INITRD in /etc/sysconfig/kernel and execute "mkinitrd". You can activate this later again.

    I'm curious as to why there are KMS issues in only some cases.

    Despite the Intel CPU and nVidia (630i) chipset, modesetting works just fine with my AMD HD5450 (which wasn't the case with the HD3450/FOSS driver/11.2 combination). Also, I have to turn modesetting *off* with the Kubuntu 10.10 (Maverick Meerkat) alpha 2 live CD (though running from an install, I can have modesetting active).
