    • Solution1: install the ATI driver from the ATI repo.

      Open a terminal and type:
      Code:
      su -l
      zypper ar http://www2.ati.com/suse/11.4/ ati
      zypper refresh
      zypper in x11-video-fglrxG02
    • Solution2: Install the latest ATI driver (one out of several ways)

      Open a terminal and type:
      Code:
      su -l
      zypper ar http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/please_try_again/openSUSE_11.4/  PTA
      zypper refresh -r PTA
      zypper in atiupgrade
      But better take a look at this post first: Upgrading ATI driver with atiupgrade - Page 6


    The driver from the ATI repo is usually older but supports your graphic card (HD 3400 series). The latest driver might have fixed some bugs or added some performance.
