Hi, I am writing here a problem that I have lately in case someone has managed to solve it.
I have openSuSE 13.1 installed on my laptop, which is a sony vaio EB1Z1E.
Till some time ago I had the radeon driver installed and spyke was working perfectly with no problems.
Lately, I installed the fglrx proprietary driver. Since then I can use skype for voice calls and I can also send video, but when the other end starts it’s camera then my desktop reboots and it takes me to the login screen.
I have searched on the internet, and though it seems that there are people facing this problem I haven’t managed to find a working solution. I also tried looking in the log files but I couldn’t find anything that looked helpful (to my understanding, though I am not an expert), apart maybe from the following part of Xorg.0.log

I would be grateful if someone has a solution, or can help me resolve the problem.
I know I can always revert to the radeon driver, but since I think that the proprietary driver has better power managment, I would prefer not to.
Thank you very much
PS: I have read some old posts about xv causing troubles and I have tried the solution here posted, but then the Xserver doesn’t even start.
