Driver hell!

Discussion created by jski on Jul 31, 2008

I downloaded ati-driver-installer-8-6-x86.x86_64.run and ran the "Auto" install option.  Then I ran /usr/bin/aticonfig --initial.  I re-booted the machine and only got a blank screen - nothing ever appeared on it!  Eventually I re-installed openSuSE 11.

What did I do wrong?  I've read that "Catalyst 8.6 for Linux doesn't support the Linux 2.6.26 kernel or X.Org 7.4 (X Server 1.5)."  SuSE 11 has the kernel.  I'm not sure about the X-server.
