    ATI FirePro™ RG220 Unified Driver Version  8.911.3.3 on SLED11 SP2 not working



      first of all I have to say that my English isn't best but I hope you'll understand the problem.


      I need to test Remote Workstation Graphics ATI FirePro™ RG220. Workstation I use is HP Proliant DL360 G7 with new instalation of SLED11 SP2. I found a "manual", how to correctly install Unified Driver 8.911.3.3 (according to patch notes, this graphics card and OS distribution are supported).


      • Download latest driver from AMD/ATI driver page
      • Open Yast2 and install: kernel-devel,kernel-desktop-devel,Gcc,Gcc c++,Make
      • Reboot, and add this to the GRUB startup options: radeon.modeset=0 blacklist=radeon 3
      • When you boot into console, become root and run: # mkinitrd
      • Afterwards, cd to download directory and run installer: # sh ati-driver-installer-*.run
      • Select default options all the way, then: # aticonfig --initial
      • And last: # /sbin/shutdown -r now


      Problem is that after driver installation, at the point where I'm suppose to create initial aticonfig all  I get is this error message:

      • aticonfig: No supported adapters detected


      So I'd like to find out if I do "something" wrong or if SLED11 SP2 is not supported yet or if mistake is somewhere else.


      With best regards, Petr.
