    Interesting.

    6tr6tr's openSUSE-12.1 has the Kernel: Linux 3.1.0-1.2-desktop x86_64 kernel. So it appears between the Kernel: Linux 3.1.0-1.2 kernel and the 3.1.4 kernel, there will be support added for the radeon open source driver.

    For those who are not comfortable in updating the kernel from a 3rd party repository, given its a change from 3.1.0 to 3.1.4 that provides the additional radeon driver support, then IMHO there is hope that we will see that update sometime in the openSUSE-12.1 update repository.
    Code:
    http://download.opensuse.org/update/12.1/
    ... my experience is an openSUSE kernel update from y.y.x to y.y.x+z is fairly common.

    I do not consider
    http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/Kernel:/stable/standard/
    to be exactly "third party"
    The present kernel there is 3.1.6.

    Fair enough.

    Some of us do consider it as that, as it is not an officially pushed kernel for 12.1 by the packagers for openSUSE-12.1 (intended for regular users). I guess it depends on one's definition of '3rd party'.

    Hmmm ....

    I can't find in the kernel change log any reference, thou, to this increase in radeon driver support to support the output of 'man radeon' that you noted. I do note:

    Is it possible you also updated the package xorg-x11-driver-video from version 7.6-80.1.2 to some newer version and it was NOT the kernel update providing the addition open source radeon driver support ?

    This is more a mute point, than anything else (helping teach me how to follow change history). ... I'm struggling a bit to understand where open source radeon driver support for the AMD 6410D was implemented (as its not in the default openSUSE 12.1.).

    I note from checking the change log for the xorg-x11-driver-video version in openSUSE-12.1, that the version of xf86-video-ati is 6.14.2 (last updated 4-Oct-11).

    I also note in factory an update to that xorg-x11-driver-video which I downloaded (and did NOT install) and checked the change log:
    Code:
    rpm -qip xorg-x11-driver-video-7.6-258.3.x86_64.rpm --changelog | less
    ...
    * Thu Nov 03 2011 sndirsch@suse.com
    - xf86-video-ati 6.14.3
      * Support for more cards, in particular Llano APUs.
      * KMS page flipping fixes.
      * vdpau/XvMC support (currently only available for >= R3xx via
        Gallium3D).
      * Tiling fixes, enable it on more cards by default.
    ... so its vague, but it could be where the update to the radeon driver for 6410D is located (if not the kernel ? )

    When I look at the change log for xf86-video-ati 6.14.3 I struggle ... the radeon site has the 6.14.2 as the latest stable version: X.Org Wiki - radeon .... But I also note the 6.14.3 when I dig further: xorg/driver/xf86-video-ati - ATI video driver ... but I did not see the change history. But when I download xf86-video-ati-6.14.3.tar.gz and not install it, but rather look inside the man file that comes with it, and I see the 6410D is supported.

    That suggests to me that it is not just the kernel update that brought the 6410D driver functionality, but rather it was the the 6.14.3 radeon driver update, which may or may not also require the kernel update. ..

    . < and I don't know wrt whether this updated xf86-video-ati-6.14.3 needs an updated kernel ... but it might ... >

    I concur with your assessment oldcpu.

    Excellent catch!
    I just updated the kernel on a client's machine and 3.1.6 does NOT support SUMO/SUMO2.
    My laptop has xorg-x11-driver-video-7.6.99.git20111206.1722-1.1.x86_64 which appears to provide SUMO/SUMO2 support.
    That xorg-x11-driver-video I would class as third party. It came from:
    http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...openSUSE_11.4/

    Now that you have the proriatary amd graphic driver installed have you tested your HDMI audio?

    If HDMI audio still does not work then please run again diagnostic alsa-info.sh script and post here website URL it provides. It should give different information with the fglrx driver installed.

    My audio now works with the proprietary driver. Of course now it has other issues (no desktop effects with opengl - instead it crashes).
