After rebooting and installing the driver, run the following in a terminal window (better yet, in an xterm session):
sudo sax2 -m -r 0=fglrx
There is a bug in how the driver interacts with Sax2 (it was present in the 8.4 drivers with 10.2, and is still present); the above workaround forces 3D (including AIGLX support) active and to screen 0. In fact, the 8.5 Catalysts are working better with 11.0 GM than they did with 11.0 RC1 patched to GM, and those worked best of all.
I restarted the process again.
(tried to get 8.5 again b/c it worked in RC1 but amd’s link is dead)
8.6 installed, aticonfiged it and then saxed it with fglrx. Sax popped up and then instead of just save I tested it. Crash!! Black screen and had to hard reboot.
Booted then ati cont centre and it says mesa for opengl
Hm, of curiosity I tried the one-click at this address: opensuse-community.org/ati.ymp
On my system, an XPRESS1250, it installed a debug version
of the kernelmodule, which of course broke my configuration
totally. So I suggest you return to the radeonhd driver and
then use yast to uninstall everything related to fglrx, a
reboot ater having done that might be a good idea too. Btw
the installer also installed the debug kernel, if you don’t
need it uninstall that too. Having rebooted to your new setup
use yast and install the ati driver from the ati repo, that’s
certainly the best way to get it working.
Run aticonfig --initial, reboot into runlevel 3 and run
sax2 -r, that should do it.
I have the same problems with the onboardcard Ati x1200 an the mainboard Asus m2a-vm. I use suse 10.3 and have the warning >>>>WARNING: could not find /usr/src/kernel-modules/fglrx/.libfglrx_ip.a.GCC4.cmd for /usr/src/kernel-modules/fglrx/libfglrx_ip.a.GCC4
and wen i used sax: sax2 -m -r 0=fglrx
SaX: initializing please wait…
SaX: your current configuration will not be read in
I have the same motherboard and have had it working in 10.3
and now in 11.0, so have hope. My guess is that you don’t have
the kernel development packages installed. Goto yast>software>
software management, select patterns in the filter dropdown
box, scroll down to the development section and mark the
linux kernel development entry for installation and click
accept. That finished reinstall the ati drivers using the
ati repo and rerun the sax setup.
