Comments on: AMD FGLRX – the 14.9 refurbished version for openSUSE 13.2 and Tumbleweed Blogs and Ramblings of the openSUSE Members Fri, 06 Mar 2020 17:50:09 +0000 hourly 1 By: MartinL Sat, 27 Dec 2014 01:25:23 +0000 Hi All,

I hope you can help. I’m using openSUSE 13.2 64bit, but I’ve also got the intel cpu/gpu + amd gpu setup. Installed the drivers by adding the above repo and using YaST2. The installed without any issue and I rebooted desktop. Booted fine and everything was displayed as should be. I tried to start YaST2 again and got an error “segmentation fault $y2ccbin $Y2UI_ARGS” also I’m a massive Minecraft player. I tried to start Minecraft via ATLauncher, but this also failed with an no OpenGL error.

Can anyone help.

Thanks in advance for your help.

By: grndzro Sun, 07 Dec 2014 05:19:38 +0000 I’m having the same problem with Gnome 3. Nothing works.

By: Wladimir Fri, 05 Dec 2014 14:37:27 +0000 Is it running on Gnome? I’ve tried yesterday twice, no success. Maybe a Wayland issue with fglrx? Thanks.

If you encouter other problems, I suggest you to write in opensuse forum, 🙂

By: Chris Wed, 19 Nov 2014 11:25:59 +0000 It is not functioning. When i type:zypper in fglrx64* It says that it can not connect to the repositories URL.

At the top of the screen it says:drm:radeon_init *ERROR* No UMS support in radeon module!

Can you tell me please what i did wrong?

Thank you for your help.

By: derekk Tue, 18 Nov 2014 13:47:13 +0000 what didn’t you understand?
Open terminal and type
su –
type you root password

then add repo
zypper ar -f -c fglrx (sorry, i missed fglrx in previous post)

next, restart pc. At boot menu make sure the “normal” grub2 entry for openSUSE is highlighted, press E button and add at the bottom of the line that begins with
“linux /boot/ etc etc this words: radeon.modeset=0 blacklist=radeon 3
Press CTRL X to start opensuse, insert user and password and type
zypper in fglrx64*

wait and reboot
