The mentioned repository seems to be out of order.
Does anybody knows something about?

Just take a look at this guide on how to install the driver:
openSUSE Graphic Card Practical Theory Guide for Users - openSUSE Forums
The repository is hopelessly broken. To get the fglrx driver, simply install Catalyst (latest version : 10.3) which you can download from the AMD support site.

That won’t keep itself up to date, or recompile automatically for new kernel’s though, right ?
That’s why the repo. was good.
I’ve not seen a notice that it has been taken out of service, so expect it to return shortly.
True, but after doing it a few times it is easy.
On occasions where one has successfully installed the hardway before (for a specific openSUSE version),then after a kernel update (assuming one has updated not only kernel but also kernel-source), boot direct to run level 3. Remove the old “fglrx” rpm. Execute the ATI*.run file with appropriate arguments. Install the new fglrx and its done. To help, one can often type:
history | grep ATI
or something like that to recall the old commands. To install the newly created "flgrx rpm, again a command like:
history | grep fglrx
to recall the comamnd, reboot, and all is well.
One can even keep a small text file somewhere thats easy to find, with the commands one needs to use.
For me and you, yes.
My parents ? Not so much.
Let’s just wait and see (hope) that the ATI repo. comes back online before trying to convince end users to do harer things than click a link, eh ?
For instance, drop a note to your countries support via http://support.amd.com/us/contacts/Pages/GraphicsTechnicalSupport.aspx
Indeed !! What sort of access do you have to your parents PC ?
For my 84-year old mother (she had her birthday on 26-March) I keep the open source driver on her PC. That way a kernel update does not affect her graphics. I maintain her PC remotely over the Internet using ssh, nx, and vnc.
The problem for me here is I live in Europe, and she lives in North America, and I only have physical access to her PC once/year. So I can not take any risks with her computer. If I break the boot or the graphics, it is truely broke until I show up in a year’s time.
I suppose if I could install a proprietary graphic driver on her PC, and it broke, I could ask her to boot to run level 3 (describing on the phone how to do this) , and then I could login in remotely via nx or ssh (both of which work in run level 3) and try to fix her graphics that way remotely, but its hard because I get little to no representative feedback of grahics in run level 3, and it would leave me uneasy.
But if I lived in the same town as my mother, I might put a proprietary driver in place.
As everytime a new kernel isinstalled on my machine ati driver has been canceled.I tried once again to install them. and again, my system is down. Kwin cant run. I uninstalled the drivers, tried to run sax2 but falls systematically by the screen testing (blue)
Can anyone help me?
Thanks in advance
If you had the proprietary ATI driver in place, there is a possibility the “fglrx” rpm is still on your system interfering with any other driver you try.
So boot to run level 3 (press 3 at the first boot/splash screen so that 3 appears in the options line) and do a regular boot, and at the full screen text mode login as a regular user. Then type:
rpm -qa '*fglrx*'
and if that indicates that you have an rpm installed with “fglrx” in the file name, then remove it with this (where this removal requires root permissions):
rpm -e $(rpm -qa '*fglrx*')
hopefully then you will have more success.
Now I have to say, you have had 200+ posts in our forum. You should know that in order to help you, you need to help the users by providing more information. ie EXACTLY what ATI card you are trying to install, and what openSUSE version? 32-bit ? 64-bit ? And presumably still 11.2 as the thread title is 11.2.
Don’t forget to read this guide:openSUSE Graphic Card Practical Theory Guide for Users - openSUSE Forums in particular in that link read post#1 and post#11.
Dear Old cpu,
Sorry to be unclear. 11.2 with radeon hd2600proagp.
I uninstall the rpm as per you advice and my system is running again.
I checked and sow that radeonhd is already installed. Could you confirm a few things:
- only one video driver must run ?
- If I want to improve the difference between on and another, radeonhd and atifglrx for instance, I have can go threw software ad/remove in yast, remove one and add the other?
- If I want to install drivers from amd website,do I have to remove the existing first?
- By a kernel update, which kind od driver/installation will be set off and which will remain?
Thank you so far.
Excellent, glad to read that. I encountered something similar just over a year ago, when I first started using proprietary ATI graphic drivers on my Dell laptop.
Typically for ATI, one has all of the open source graphic drivers available as installed rpms on one’s PC, and available to be loaded. Sometimes one can install the proprietary ATI driver but not configure it , and the open source drivers will load. And sometimes (as you just discovered) it will not. I do not think there is any hard fast rule here.
If you read the guidance here: openSUSE Graphic Card Practical Theory Guide for Users - openSUSE Forums you will see that
rpm provides many different drivers, such as fbdev, vesa, ati, radeon … - xorg-x11-driver-video-radeonhd
rpm provides the radeonhd driver - *fglrx *
is associated with the proprietary driver
Typically one can have both xorg-x11-driver-video rpm and xorg-x11-driver-video-radeonhd rpms installed and switch back and forth between driver with a custom /etc/X11/xorg.conf file (by changing the file each boot) but as noted, this on occasion will NOT work for the fglrx proprietary driver.
If you wish to install a new (or old, or re-install an existing) version of the ATI propreitary graphic driver, and IF you have an existing (or failed attempt of an existing) ATI proprietary graphic driver in place, then YES, you must 1st remove the existing proprietary driver. Thus far this is NOT the case for open source ATI graphic drivers.
Please read this: openSUSE Graphic Card Practical Theory Guide for Users - openSUSE Forums I think I made it clear there.

Easy to set up, well documented and exactly the tool to use for “automated” updates of kernel modules from “hand made” drivers.
