11.2: ATI Radeon default driver.

The bug in this driver was corrected last week but did not make it to the
official release. The numbering system for them means that they won’t be
recognised by YAST as being updates if the factory repo is added so they’ll
have to be selected by hand.

The drivers are:

x11-driver-video-radeonhd-1.3.0_20091106_619706-2.1.i586.rpm

I’m in the meddle of the 11.2 installation.

During the phase of system restart, before the final configuration, yast hangs due to the following X11 error


(EE) failed to load module "fglrx" (module does not exist, 0)
(EE) RADEONHD(0): Unsupported PowerPlayInfo revision
(EE) RADEONHD(0): Power Management: Cannot get known good chip configuration
(EE) RADEONHD(0): RHDHmiInit: unkown HDMI output type

going to console (ALT+F2) I installed the above reffered driver but the error persist.

I need a work around to complete the installation :’(

I would like to mention that people using the radeon (not the radeonhd) module will encounter issues with compositing and graphical effects, and that there is no similar patch available so far.

In my case it seems that the patch doesn’t work either.

Is anyone able to give me an hint on how to end the installation?
How to tell via grub to X11 to load the graphic driver used in the first part of the installation that worked?

How could be possible that the release candidate version are BETTER than the official release?

I was able to install for testing the 11.2 RC1 but not the official >:(
