Well, I was messing with my SuSE 9.2 video configuration, setting, unsetting and resetting the video card. The thing is I forgot to set one before rebooting so I had no card configured at startup. So it started as text mode, and after trying to run the graphical environment with 'startx', the resulting log is this:

It says the new driver is 'ati', so I guess it just got autoconfigured. So I guess it has something to do with the "framebuffer mode", if only I knew what it is...
Anyway, could anyone help me to restore my former graphic mode? I hope to learn something after all
Thank you everyone in advance and forgive me if it's a lame problem
