I **upgraded **(not installed) openSUSE 13.2 to Leap 42.2 today. To get the upgrade going, I had to use F3 on the boot screen to set the Video Mode to “No KMS”. After that, the upgrade was uneventful and successful
When booting 42.2, there is a brief message that says, “No UMS support in Radeon Module”. It does not stop startup and the display seems OK.
I assume I need to load some Radeon HD6530 D drivers. Can someone point me in the right direction for instructions?

The fglrx-Driver does not build with Leap 42.2, so you can only use the free Radeon-Driver from inside the Kernel.
This one is installed but “no KMS” (nomodeset) is preventing them from loading.
How to delete nomodeset see here:

I followed the instructions in the post you referenced to delete nomodeset.
After reboot, the Optional Kernel Command Line Parameter was the same as before.
linux-ikia:~ # cat /proc/cmdline
BOOT_IMAGE=/boot/vmlinuz-4.4.36-8-default root=UUID=faa8aa50-d380-48cc-92e0-f75b79edb441 resume=/dev/disk/by-id/ata-WDC_WD5002AALX-00J37A0_WD-WMAYUJ652853-part1 splash=silent quiet showopts nomodeset resume=/dev/disk/by-id/ata-WDC_WD5002AALX-00J37A0_WD-WMAYUJ652853-part1 splash=silent quiet showopts
Did you do that with Yast—System—Bootloader?

Yes. I deleted the Optional Kernel Command Line Parameter and clicked OK from Yast > System > Bootloader > Kernel Parameters
The deleted code is:
resume=/dev/disk/by-id/ata-WDC_WD5002AALX-00J37A0_WD-WMAYUJ652853-part1 splash=silent quiet showopts nomodeset resume=/dev/disk/by-id/ata-WDC_WD5002AALX-00J37A0_WD-WMAYUJ652853-part1 splash=silent quiet showopts
(aside - why is there not code block feature when editing a post? I used the Quote block just to set it apart.)
Running the Bootloader a second time (no reboot) shows that the code is still there just like it was before deletion. Apparently the change is not being saved as it should be.
Did you accept the changes just closing the window saves nothing
Also should not delete the line just nomodeset

I deleted the entire line and clicked “OK” (the only other option was “Cancel”)
I will now just delete the word “nomodeset” click “OK” and get back to you with the results.

That worked like a charm! Thank You for clarifying the instructions.
My display is now great, not just OK (readable).
