    Recommended Repos for SLED11-SP3 with legacy ATI graphics

    What ist the recommended repo for SLED11-SP3 x86_64 with a legacy ATI
    RV710 [Radeon HD 4350]? All information I can find is related to
    openSUSE, nothing for SLED.

    Are you asking for a recommended repo specifically related to ATI RV710
    or SLED11 SP3 more generally?

    The SLED11 SP3 repos are SLED11-SP3-Pool and SLED11-SP3-Updates. You
    certainly shouldn't add any openSUSE-specific repos to SLED.

    HTH.

    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: <hmihaii.6tybm0@no-mx.forums.suse.com>

    In addition the script by Sebastian Siebert comes handy:
    https://www.sebastian-siebert.de/201...-installieren/
    But then it is a script for openSUSE and does not find the repo for SLED...

    Repository definition:
    [ati]
    name=ati-amd
    enabled=1
    autorefresh=1
    baseurl=http://www2.ati.com/suse/sle11sp3
    type=rpm-md
    keeppackages=0

    # zypper ar ati.repo
    # zypper install ati-fglrxG03-kmp-default x11-video-fglrxG03
    installs
    ati-fglrxG03-kmp-default-12.104_3.0.76_0.11-1.4
    x11-video-fglrxG03-12.104-1.2
    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
    installs
    x11-video-fglrxG02-8.970-4.58
    ati-fglrxG02-kmp-default-8.970_3.0.76_0.11-2.73

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

    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.
