Comments on: ATI/AMD fglrx 8.872 Catalyst 11.7 available for openSUSE 11.3, 11.4, 12.1 (Factory) Blogs and Ramblings of the openSUSE Members Fri, 06 Mar 2020 17:50:09 +0000 hourly 1 By: Bruno Friedmann Thu, 01 Sep 2011 09:52:11 +0000 Gilles, I’m a bit surprised you use the 11.7 when the 11.8 is available.

To troubleshoot just verify you get the latest one.
zypper se -s fglrx shoud show 8.881 as version

Then, if in the amdccle you didn’t see 11.8, the update has failed somewhere (mostly this happen when the update is made under X)
I would then goes to console, (close you xorg session), then ctl+alt+f1, log as root, init 3 (shutdown xorg)
then zypper rm fglrx, zypper in fglrx should fix it.

We know that testing with high end hardware is hard for example to Sebastian Siebert. That’s why we open the pledge to help him to get a real recent gpu and double screen
If you can help, you’re welcome
