Question How to install the ATI firepro driver into my Opensuse box?

Hi there,

I installed ATI firepro driver into my Opensuse box, but the X can't start. I always get warnings like:

GdmLocalDisplayFactory: maximum number of X display failures reached: check X server log for errors.

May I ask what is a solution please and how to check the X server log?

Thanks a lot.

Or how can I just uninstall the ATI driver?

Because before I install it the GUI is working.

I can't find the original xorg.conf now...
