Those informations are obsolete now : please consult //lizards.opensuse.org/?p=8888

AMD/ATI Catalyst 12.3 / fglrx 8.951 rpms are available

Quick Résumé about 12.3

AMD rename their installer, So Sebastian did the same for his script.

I will just copy/google translate/paste here the comment made by Sebastian Siebert on his blog :

amd ccc and fgl_glgears running

The packaging script was updated because I have a compile error when building a kernel module fglrx in the kernel 3.2.8+ and 3.3+. Due to the very tight time window, the patches could no longer be incorporated into AMD Catalyst 12.3. Only in the upcoming AMD Catalyst 12.4, the patches from me for openSUSE will be available. AMD Catalyst 12.5 they will be officially included for all other distributions. Yes, with the makerpm-amd script made for you, I can despatch on very simple, convenient and quick patches or missing useful extensions via the script packaging update. Who need to wait months.
Driver support now AMD Radeon HD 7950, HD 7970, HD 7990

See more at Sebastian’s blog.
Don’t be shy, you can leave there the result of test in english too 😀
or ask in forums, irc and ping freespacer.

The rpms version 8.951 are available from Friday March 30th.
