What have you tried so far? The general advice is use the SuSE package instead of ATI's package, and follow the instructions to the letter.

Suse package? I am unaware of this. I tried to use the drivers for my card of off the ATI site, but they didn't work. And as I was reading about it the official ATI drivers are not compatible with the 2.6 kernel, only with the 2.4. I am not aware of where to get the suse package, please give me any info on that if you can. Thanks for all of your help.

AFAIK there isn't any official SuSE package for the ATI drivers. You will have to get the driver from ATI and follow their instructions.

SuSE has been repackaging the ATI drivers for some time...

Radeon M6

Does anyone know about drivers for the Radeon M6 LY?

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Radeon Mobility M6 LY

3D graphics are a real pain at the moment, leading to occasional hangs/crashes if the display window is too large.

Thanks.

Is it at all likely that XF86Config-4 conflicts with XF86Config in terms of keyboard, mouse, display ect. setup?
On a previous installation, I began fiddlin with the Proprietary driver and the kernel and next morning I boot up and the mouse, printer and ethernet connection were dead.

I think the concensus of those here is that installing the repackaged ATI driver from SUSE is the easiest route and I would concur.

No DRM includes failures.
No bull.

I had some issues getting my mouse configured properly when I tried to use ATI's packages. The display worked okay. It shouldn't have anything to do with printer or Ethernet connection.
