Suspend/Resume using OpenSuse 10.0 and ATI (fglrx)


I'm not able to use suspend/resume (to disk) after changing driver from radeon to fglrx.
Suspend/resume worked perfectly with the radeon driver, but with fglrx resume hangs during bootup. It reads pages, "restarts" devices etc and then after the message "Restarting tasks..." has been outputed it just hangs. I really don't want to move back to the radeon driver.

I see this kind of post everywhere, but I've tried several things without any luck.
I haven't figured out this stuff about swsusp and swsusp2 - which one do I use with the default installation and which one is recommended?

I'd really appreciate some help on this issue.
