Proprietary AMD/ATI Catalyst fglrx 13.1 (9.012-1) rpm released
Sorry this article should have been published Saturday, but some trouble (error in a updated module) locked me outside of lizards), Thanks to Matthew to have fix it in the meantime
This release concern only owners of radeon HD5xxx or above.
For older gpu, the fglrx-legacy is still 12.6, and thus didn’t work with Kernel 3.6, 3.7, 3.8
Beware of that fact, and prefer the free open-source radeon driver which came out of the box from your openSUSE distribution.
Release note about 13.1
This Catalyst fglrx version support openSUSE version from 11.4 to 12.3 (new repository) and also Tumbleweed (thus also kernel 3.8x series).
For testing with the next openSUSE 12.3 just use the new openSUSE_12.3 repo

Sebastien Siebert making script
If you have any problems with the driver, don’t be afraid to report to Sebastian (German and English bugreports are gladly accepted).
he will try, as far as I am able to reproduce the bug. Together with the necessary system information, he will go directly to the right place at AMD to have the bug fixed in the next driver release.
Thank you very much, Sebastian.
See below what to do in case of troubles.
Or you can also ping him on irc (freespacer)
For openSUSE version 11.3 and above
- Have a radeon hd5xxx and above
- You have to use the standard fglrx
- Use the new repository http://geeko.ioda.net/mirror/amd-fglrx/openSUSE_VERSION
- Have a radeon between hd2xxx and hd4xxx
- You have to use the legacy fglrx version
- Use the new repository http://geeko.ioda.net/mirror/amd-fglrx-legacy//openSUSE_VERSION
Note that legacy has not yet been updated, and so can’t be use on kernel 3.6+ (Tumbleweed, 12.3 or kotd)
or have a look at the previous article which describe also step by step the procedure
I recommend in case of trouble the use of his script which can collect the whole informations needed to help you. then you just have to issue a simple commande in console to collect all informations, you can review them, and finally transmit them.
