    Default ati driver issues on tumbleweed 2.6.38-18-desktop kernel

    Hi,
    I just updated to new 2.6.38-18 kernel and headers. Now the latest Ati 11.2 driver wont install completely and I cannot get any X.
    So I removed the ati drivers to use the opensuse drivers but kde wont start now (dont know what the issue is.. maybe someone can poitn me out the the correct log file to look for errors).. I am using gnome now. Anyone knows how to get ground this and install ati drivers.
    thanks

    Does it boot to GUI with the boot code 'nomodeset' ? How about with failsafe settings /

    NO.. I cannot even get any graphics in the failsafe mode.
    When I tried to install the ati driver, during the final building.. it throws up unreadable garbage out. It is even impossible to continue using the shell. I suspect some libraries are not compatible and when I tried to startx (init 3 & init 5) the Xserver throws up error about inaccesible locations (again bringing the issue of incompatible libraries).

    Incompatible libraries ?

    Hmmm ... did you have other repositories besides OSS, Non-OSS, Update, Packman and Tumbleweed ?

    Did you remove your xorg.conf file when trying with the open source driver? It may still be trying to load fglrx.

    I am having the same issue.

    kernel: 2.6.38-18-desktop
    video card: ATI Technologies Inc RV730XT [Radeon HD 4670]

    I tried ati-driver-installer-11-1-x86.x86_64.run and ati-driver-installer-11-2-x86.x86_64.run both die during installation.

    Then I tried this:

    Code:
    cd /lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod/
    ./make.sh
    and here is the resulting output.

    I am currently using the OSS driver while I look more into this issue.
