Smile Installing ATI over OpenSUSE 11.1

Actually I've an problem with openSUSE 11.1. After I had installed it, I added the display driver (ati) by using the Yast repository. And now KDE doesn't starts anymore, there's only a black screen (not even the terminal). Do you have an idea, how to solve this problem???

use the boot option "init 3" which should load opensuse into run level 3, terminal only. Then either reinstall the ati driver through yast or download the newest version from the ATI website and install that. Make sure you have installed all the required extra packages listed on the opensuse ati pages otherwise it will not work. If you are using 64bit opensuse then make sure you have all the required 32bit packages installed.
