It's finally here, the much improved openSuSE 11.3 release. And I have to say that the team behind it have done a fantastic job!

I've upgraded my main desktop to run the new OS and as usuall, the ATI prop. driver isn't updated to support the new kernel shipped with openSuSE 11.3. But no worries, a work around has already been published AND it allows you to download a pre-built RPM both for x32 and x64.

openSUSE 11.2 with ATI graphics

I ran into some problems while setting up my openSUSE 11.2 x64 system using ATI graphics. The problems occurs during the install and configuration of ATI's proprietary driver.

First of, you must enable POSIX shared memory, since this is not enabled by default in openSUSE. (At least not in my case).$[BREAK]$

Please note that this guide is intended for x86_x64 only. It might work for x32 as well if you mod the pre-requisite part.
