I installed openSuSe 11.4 on a Lenovo W500 and noticed this error message upon bootup. The desktop login doesn’t make it to the screen. I went into fail-safe mode as root. I know the issue is attributed to the R600_rlc.bin located in /lib/firmware/R600_rlc.bin. I attempt to make some config changes but the file is in binary. It could be a problem associated with the creation of the initrd but not certain. It’s a dual-boot system running Windows 7 on the other partition.
Has anyone been exposed to this issue?
