Just noticed the articles about the latest Catalyst release. Any word on it? Currently, with openSuSE 11 I can only work with GPU emulation ... and I needn't have bought a 4870 for that.
Just un-installed Catalyst 8.7 and installed 8.8 (I did have to re-boot before running aticonfig --initial). I tried to run simple_matmult_d but I still get (with openSuSE 11 + Radeon 4870):
