Proprietary AMD/ATI Catalyst fglrx 13.12 (13.251-3) rpm get a new build release

January 27th, 2014 by

Just a small note about a new build (-3) of the 13.251 fglrx version.


AMD has changed /etc/ati/amdpcsdb.default database in its tarball

The packages have just been published on geeko.ioda.net, so next time you zypper up the new build should appear as a proposed update


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 openSUSE 12.3 or above.
Beware of that, and prefer the free open-source radeon driver which came out of the box from your openSUSE distribution.
For 12.3 and especially 13.1 the free radeon often offer a better experience than the old fglrx-legacy.

Have fun!

    Hi 🙂

    The stable one works with
    01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Robson CE [Radeon HD 6370M/7370M]?

    Thank you for bringing an easy way to install fglrx drivers. Unfortunately recently i’ve been having a specific problem with the fglrx drivers and AMD GPU in general. My computer freezes as soon as it tries to load X server (black screen, monitor shuts down and computer reboots). This thing happens when i have installed 13.xx fglrx drivers or when using 3.13.x kernel with open source drivers .

    At least when i’m using fglrx drivers this problem goes away when i add “nomodeset” to Grub. The stupid thing is that there are no errors in log files (upon request i would provide needed log files).

    OpenSuse 13.1 with default kernel
    AMD A8-5600K APU (Radeon HD 7560D)
