    LOL, what are those zzzzzs for? this is not an online chat! and no one here is paid to sit and wait for your question so they can jump on it..

    you might have taken the 18 minutes between your post to try to explain your problem.....because i have no idea what it is!

    you write "I have hp probook with Radeon HD 6370m but Official driver isn't working." but, what does that mean?

    -3D is not working?

    -multiple screens is not working?

    -video is upside down?

    -video is full of artifacts? smears?

    -no video at all?
    --blank screen no cursor?
    --blank screen blinking cursor?
    --white screen?

    -desktop effects not working?

    -can't boot and have a error message saying "Radeon HD 6370m Official driver not working"


    so, how about you give us some info:


    1. What desktop environment & version? yes, i see GDM, that is window manager...which desktop environment and version

    2. The problem/symptom you describe: did it begin immediately after initial install, or did it come suddenly, some time later?

    *if immediately, these would be useful to know:

    -Was it installed from media downloaded from software.opensuse.org, or some other place? Where?

    -Did you md5 or sha1 check the .iso prior to burning the install disk?

    -Did you do this http://tinyurl.com/2ebcf27 before install attempt? (if not, please, boot from the install media, do it now and report results)

    -is this a fresh format and install system? or, did you upgrade (keeping any partitions from a former install of Linux? which distro/version was the former version?)

    *if it worked ok for a while:

    -did this problem begin after a particular update or install?

    -if you use YaST to add a new test user, and then log in as that user do you see the same symptom?

    in either case (new problem or beginning immediately after initial install) we need to know what it the "Official driver" which is installed but "not working"?

    that info would help us, help you....

    and, i'll zzzzzzzzzz a while

    ik90 this is a forum run by unpaid volunteer enthusiasts. We are not paid. Your impatient reply suggests me you do not know that.

    Have patience and some one will reply.

    If you have no patience for this then I suggest you try the IRC chat channel: freenode #suse.

    I do not believe the Radeon nor the Radeonhd open source drivers have support for the Radeon HD 6370m. Likely this will work (with poor performance) with the FBDEV and/or VESA driver. You can likely get the FBDEV driver to load by booting with the "Failsafe" setting or with the boot code "x11failsafe".

    Possibly the proprietary AMD driver may have support for this hardware. You can download it by going to this page: ATI Catalyst™ Proprietary Display Driver

    And the release notes provide instructions on how to install the driver: http://www2.ati.com/relnotes/Catalys..._Installer.pdf

    There are also MANY other ways to install the same driver.

    Install drm-radeon-kmp-{flavor} package and update other packages from home:jobermayr.
    (Index of /repositories/home:/jobermayr)

    You should then even have 3D support ...

    If he terms the radeon driver as "Official driver" then yes (3rd and 5th en-dash):

    There are many versions of the official AMD drivers. Which version do you have installed ?

    There was in fact a new version of the proprietary AMD driver released yesterday. Do you have that version installed ?

    When you say poor , ... poor compared to what ? If compared to MS-Windows that is no surprise as the performance of the GNU/Linux graphic drivers provided by Graphic hardware suppliers (AMD and nVidia) are notorious for being slow compared to their MS-Windows graphic driver counter parts.

    Did you run the Catalyst Control panel to try and tune the performance ?
