    and kernel-default from openSUSE_11.3

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

              A small update.

              Today tried booting the newest (from the link) SUSE kenrnel, but
              now, no more desktop.

              Suse starts after I select it in the Grub screen.

              I see one Suse screen then the screen goes blank, and monitor switched off.
              Sound is still working,I hear the sound when normally the desktop loads.

              Later today, I might try if the SUSE fail-safe will start.

              Or start over by adding the two links, to this working version.

              I spent allot of time in YAST yesterday.
              The tip about making sure you keep a working kernel behind saved me.

              I am sure I did not change anything, but thats what we all say.
