          AMD+fglrx=Nvidia

          I see AMD has actually near zero bugdet for opensource driver, why are they polishing fglrx 10.10? Why is Qaridarium so happy about blob?

            LOL why i'm so happy with the blob???? right now i use the radeon driver

            haha.. for my new card catalyst does not make sence at all.. its a hd5450 this card is to slow for any dx11 effects.

            amd OS driver bugdet goes into the southern island r900 driver because the release of this cards are next week.

            and amd will release os drivers faster you know ?

                Suse does not seem to use minefield.

                I have re installed open suse 11.3 now for the third time.
                ( that why I did not answer sooner)

                I will not be installing the catalist drivers for a while.
                Now I wil try the experimental opensource drivers.

                So right now I not yet have 3D support, but I can watch justin tv.
                During the install of open suse, I had to accept a flash license, that why I am pretty sure I am using the closed source player.

                  http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...openSUSE_11.3/

                  Packages:
                  Kernel
                  drm-radeon-kmp-{flavor}
                  libdrm
                  Mesa
                  xorg-x11-driver-video

                  That are latest drivers (experimental, daily updated, dri and gallium).

                  Note:
                  Keep always one working kernel flavor because kernels from Kernel:HEAD are sometimes broken.
                  Which drn-radeon should I choose ?

                  drm-radeon-kmp-default
                  drm-radeon-kmp-desktop
                  drm-radeon-kmp-pae
                  drm-radeon-kmp-xen

                    The one which fits to your installed kernel:

                    kernel-default and drm-radeon-kmp-default
                    kernel-desktop and drm-radeon-kmp-desktop
                    kernel-pae and drm-radeon-kmp-pae
                    kernel-xen and drm-radeon-kmp-xen

                    But keep one working kernel (for example):
                    kernel-desktop and drm-radeon-kmp-desktop from Kernel:HEAD and home:jobermayr
                    and kernel-default from openSUSE_11.3

                    When you cannot boot with Kernel from Kernel:HEAD you can boot with a rescue Kernel ...

                      I have used google, and found what I was looking for.
                      I need to edit a file.

                      file /etc/zypp/zypp.conf

                      http://forums.opensuse.org/english/g...ough-yast.html

                      I am not happy they changed this though. The openSuse versions I used before this one, did this by default.

                      Ah well, another problem solved.

                        It seems I instaleld all.

                        I added the two links to yast. Then did and update.

                        When I run glxgears, it says
                        WARNING: Direct Rendering is NOT enabled

                        Should I unstall something ?

                        When I looked in yast2 I noticed that also the radeon HD drivers are installed.

                        System info also still says no 3D support

                        One thing I can think off, I am picking the wrong suuse from the grub screen ?
                        I am now picking the one with the highest number.

                          Check in your xorg log and see which driver is actually being used.

                            yast then updated my system.
                            I just checked, as far as I can tell I have all the packages ? installed.

                            I did notice I also have the radeonHD driver installed, should I unstall that one?

                              It seems to me I can't remove my last reply.

                              Maybe a mod can ?

                                I wouldn't worry about the extra post.

                                Can you maybe pastebin your xorg log and dmesg output ? You may be missing firmware or something...
