ATI Mobility Radeon on OpenSuse 11.4 fglrx/driver issue
Im attempting to get my ATI Mobility Radeon 3650 HD to function properly on an new installation of OpenSuse 11.4. This is on a Toshiba A300 laptop.
I have been trying for a couple of days now and cant seem to figure out how to get this to work. I have tried:
1) booting with nomodeset
2) installing the new catalyst 11.5 software from ATI, released a couple of days ago
3) booting in failsafe
4) editing 50-device.conf and uncommented the "Driver "radeon"" line
Everytime I boot, irregardless of what boot options I use, FGLRX module does not load. System tells me that its attempting to create/load it only to fail everytime.
I have seemed to get it to install only to have glxgears and glxinfo fail on me still.
linux-psf8:/home/tokth # glxgears
X Error of failed request: BadRequest (invalid request code or no such operation)
Major opcode of failed request: 137 (GLX)
Minor opcode of failed request: 19 (X_GLXQueryServerString)
Serial number of failed request: 15
Current serial number in output stream: 15
I will be honest.. I have no idea where to look anymore and everything I seem to find on the internet about the issue are scenarios that I have already tried. Any help is greatly appreciated.
It returns nothing. I have installed it via yast... or at least I thought I did. What I do notice is that in boot, fglrx's creation is attemtped since it is missing, but fails and then bootup just continues on. This is with nomodeset OR failsafe.
Well you'll need to find out why the installation didn't build the kernel module. I'm not very familiar with openSUSE, but I know many distributions have separate packages, one for the fglrx userland and one for the fglrx kernel module. That's the first thing I'd check.
