http://forums.opensuse.org – Hello, I have a lot of incongruences in my card identification, mainly my card (identified as Mobility Radeon X2500 on Vista) on Sax2 is identified as X1700, but in "lspci" is identified as X1600. Before installing the "fglrx" driver, "glxinfo" gave me the Mesa support, now gives me no support at all: Code: name of display: :0.0 X Error of failed request:  BadRequest (invalid request code or no such operation)   Major opcode of failed request:  143 (GLX)   Minor opcode of failed request:  19 (X_GLXQueryServerString)   Serial number of failed request:  14   Current serial number in output stream:  14 Anyway, I ran the installation from Yast, after that there was no way to start xserver after system restart, I received always this message in xorg log: Code: (II) LoadModule: "fglrx" (II) Loading /usr/lib64/xorg/modules//drivers/fglrx_drv.so dlopen: /usr/lib64/xorg/modules//drivers/fglrx_drv.so: undefined symbol: xf86NumDefaultModes (EE) Failed to load /usr/lib64/xorg/modules//drivers/fglrx_drv.so (II) UnloadModule: "fglrx" (EE) Failed to load module "fglrx" (loader failed, 7) [...] No screens found So I configured the xserver for using the old "radeonhd" driver via "sax2 -r -m 0=radeonhd". Now the strange thing is that when I invoke "lsmode" I find the "fglrx" driver, but no "radeonhd". Also I tried another way suggested in the forum: 1) "sh driver.run" with automatic installation 2) aticonfig --initial -f but aticonfig complains that there are no supported cards... I am a bit confused... :X (Distributions)
