More specifically for this hardware. I have to configure a teacher's PC
which is permanently attached to a beamer with HDMI. This will not work
together with the DVI monitor as a dual monitor setup with the radeon
module shipped with SLED11-SP3. With SP2 I had an ATI repository at hand
with the proprietary fglrx which does the trick.

Making the systems work is more important the me than SUSE support in
this case.
Actually I did miss a recent thread in a neighboring forum which gives
most of the information I am looking for:
"SP3 does not work with dual display for ATI fglrx"
Message-ID: <>

In addition the script by Sebastian Siebert comes handy:
But then it is a script for openSUSE and does not find the repo for SLED...

Repository definition:

# zypper ar ati.repo
# zypper install ati-fglrxG03-kmp-default x11-video-fglrxG03
These do not work with kernel 3.0.101-0.47.52-default, so I try
# zypper install ati-fglrxG02-kmp-default x11-video-fglrxG02

Do I need these (mkinitrd seems to be part of the rpm)?
# mkinitrd
# grub-install

Module is available now:

# /sbin/lspci -nnk|grep -A3 VGA
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD]
nee ATI RV710 [Radeon HD 4350] [1002:954f]
Subsystem: PC Partner Limited Device [174b:174b]
Kernel driver in use: fglrx_pci
Kernel modules: fglrx, radeon

Now configuring with sax2:
# sax2 -r
After defining the first and second monitor and the respective
resolutions within sax2 the setup now works for me.
I have no idea why SLED does not ship with fglrx. I comes with a lot of
other non-FOS stuff so I see no reason why costumers have to deal with
all this messy things.
