But no matter I am on Tumbleweed with radeon driver.... radeon driver works just great !
    I apologize for the bad English !
    Im on gnome too when the driver failed. Never tried on KDE though.

    razirazo - what motherboard do you have?
    Asus M4a88td (AMD88G chpset) but it has probably nothing to do this the driver installation.
    I was upgrading as part of migration to Intel platform.

    I did read elsewhere a lot of people find that this version of driver is not compatible with current version of Gnome.

    I can confirm this . No joy for GNOME (yet I hope).

    same here, the new driver does not work with HD 7700/7800 (7850 is the one I have)
    X starts (13.2 64x, KDE) but it does not work properly; when try to open the AMD control center, I get an error message that the driver is not found
    hope to get this fixed asap

    UPDATE
    the problem as reported on the above post was only when I upgraded to 13.2;
    later in the day I decided to do a clean install, and now the FGLRX driver works fine (same PC, same configuration)

    Wow, that is strange. I did a fresh install in the first place... I will try to do a reinstall when I will have time, maybe this will work for me as well
