Radeonhd update breaks video scaling with HD 4350

Yesterday, the Updater Applet of my OpenSUSE 11.2 installation installed a new version of xorg-x11-driver-video-radeonhd and today video doesn’t scale any more with my Radeon HD 4350. I found rollback / downgrading instructions in the forum from 2008, but I couldn’t map them to the current version of YaST2. The following work-around fixed the problem for me:

  1. YaST2 - Software - Software Repositories; select Update repository; uncheck “Enabled” property; OK

  2. Logout; go to ctrl+alt+F1 console; login as root; run “init 3”

  3. YaST2 (text mode) - Software - Software Management - search for radeonhd; uninstall package (change flag to “-” by pressing space key and confirm)

  4. enter software management again; search for radeonhd; version offered is from 2009; select, install and quit YaST2

  5. run “init 5”

  6. enable the update repository again / undo step 1

  7. YaST2 - Software - Online Update: right-click on the radeonhd package that is offered for update and select “taboo - never install”; ok/accept

Does anybody know what the bug “582649” is that this update is supposed to fix?

Hope this is useful and best regards,

If the xorg-x11-driver-video-radeonhd broke things, you could try the XOrg : X11 version, per post#11 here: openSUSE Graphic Card Practical Theory Guide for Users - openSUSE Forums - post#11
