AMD has released the new AMD Catalyst 15.5. Unfortunately AMD has forgot to update the packaging script. The new feature (SLED 12) is currently broken by the original AMD Catalyst 15.5. My script corrects this mainly issue with an updated packaging script. It included the Kernel patches for 4.0 and 4.1.
Warning: This driver based on an old development fork and does not support X-Server 1.17 on Tumbleweed. GNOME Desktopmanager (gdm) is also broken for the moment. My suggestion for you, stay on the latest AMD Catalyst 15.3 Beta.
- Support for SUSE® Linux Enterprise Desktop 12
- : Fixes the issue of discrete GPU not being powered off in Power-Saving mode on some PowerXpress AMD GPU + AMD APU platforms
- : Fixes minor screen corruption when resuming from S3 caused by display hot plugging
- : Vari-Bright on some configurations is not decreasing brightness as expected

Installation guide (English):
Bruno Friedmann will build the new RPM packages in the fglrx repository. Stay tune!
If you find any issue with the driver. Don’t hesitate to contact me. I am in contact with AMD and can forward your issue to the right place. Feedback are welcome.
A report of your system is very helpful beside your feedback. You can generate it with the script:
su -c 'sh makerpm-amd-15.5.sh -ur'
Have a lot of fun!
