HOWTO
-----

1) Update XFree86 drivers

# rpm -Uhv fglrx*.rpm


2) Update kernel module

* prepare kernel module build

- install the following packages with YaST:
+ kernel-source
+ make
+ gcc
- use YaST Online Update (YOU) and - if available - select the
kernel patch to make sure that the kernel sources match the
current running kernel
- configure the kernel sources
# cd /usr/src/linux
# rm -f .config
# make cloneconfig
# make prepare-all
- remove kernel module sources
# rm -rf /usr/src/kernel-modules/fglrx

* install kernel module source

# rpm -Uhv km_fglrx*.rpm

* compile kernel module sources (needs to be done each time you
update your kernel!)

# cd /usr/src/kernel-modules/fglrx
# KERNEL_SOURCE=/usr/src/linux make modules
# KERNEL_SOURCE=/usr/src/linux make install
# depmod -a


3) Configure X11

# rcxdm stop
# sax2 -r -m 0=fglrx -b /usr/X11R6/lib/sax/profile/firegl -i


4a) Enable 3D support

* edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf with your favorite editor

- verify, that

Load "dri"

is in Section "Module"


4b) XVideo Support

* edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf with your favorite editor

-add

Option "VideoOverlay" "on"
Option "OpenGLOverlay" "off"

to Section "Device"


5) Enable TV-out support

* edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf with your favorite editor

- add

Option "NoTV" "no"
Option "TVStandard" "PAL-D"

to Section "Device"

NOTE: PAL-D is only one example of several TV Standards. The
following are available for configuration:

NTSC-M
NTSC-N
NTSC-JPN
PAL-B
PAL-D
PAL-G
PAL-H
PAL-I
PAL-K
PAL-L
PAL-N
PAL-M
PAL-SCART
PAL-CN
PAL-K1


5) Known Issues

- driver only supports 24bit color depth
- enabling of 3D support through SaX2 does not work
