Installed Video Card - Major (?) Problems

Using SUSE 11.1 with KDE.
Installed an ATI card. Did a “1 Click” install of the drivers.
First couple of “SUSE” GUI screens (Load) show fine.
Then, just a long series of text messages (like old DOS).
Ends up with a login line.
Reverting back to the “onboard” video puts the desktop back to normal except
KWIN is saying it’s “Unstable”, etc.
Where did I veer off the path and what’s the path back
to the KDE GUI.

In the 11.1 the OneClick installers are not reliable and they are not my recommendation generally.
Go in to Yast and check you have the correct driver for your card, whatever it is, you don’t say:

  • x11-video-fglrxG02
    (for HD2000 series and later) - x11-video-fglrxG01
    (for Radeon 9500 - X1900)

SDB:ATI drivers - openSUSE

Change as necessary.
