Proprietary AMD/ATI Catalyst fglrx 13.4 (12.104-1) rpm released
This release concern only owners of radeon HD5xxx or above.
For older gpu, the fglrx-legacy is still 13.1, and thus didn’t work with Kernel 3.6, 3.7, 3.8 nor openSUSE 12.3 and xorg 1.13
Beware of that, and prefer the free open-source radeon driver which came out of the box from your openSUSE distribution.
