Xorg 7.1 rpm repository opensuse 10.2


Perhaps anyone of you does know, that opensuse 10.2, which was just released a few days ago, uses Xorg 7.2 which is incompatible to ATI graphic cards. Therefore, I found a way to solve that at least temporarily: install of a few rpm's of Xorg 6.9 from the suse 10.1 installation. it works quite well with the ATI driver BUT there is an issue with the keyboard. I am not able to change the keyboard settings either in sax2 nor in kde, so only part of my keys are working (german umlauts and alt-gr functions don't work!).

now my question: after extensive search I did not find any rpm repository for Xorg 7.1 rpm's. I don't want to compile Xorg from source since there are a few dependencies which are better resolved by smart.... does anybody know a source for Xorg 7.1 rpm's related to opensuse? on the servers and mirrors of opensuse you only find the new Xorg 7.2 which don't work together with the ATI driver.

appreciate your help!
