fglrx is the config program from ATI (I think). From my experience its a pain in the ass to set up ATI cards in Linux, I havn't gotten it yet.
After you install the ATI drivers you have to run fglrx (and there maby a recompiling of the kernal in there, which is what I think I missed)

this is a common problem with many distros that while attempting to cater to rookies, you must do things in exactly the proper order or the automated configuration WILL OVERWRITE your changes
I do not know what you have to do to fix this. I think, if you edit the xorg.conf file after setting it in YAST, then YAST should leave it alone if you change it manually.

It's a common problem? How many installs have you ever seen this happen to? You may want to rethink your reply to everything post whoring strategy a little.

Ok, I followed the instructions here, and I have encounted a problem while trying to run
I have attached the SaX2 error log. I'm not sure why it happened, because all the other commands ran smoothly. But when I executed this one, SaX2 did not start - it exited with an error explaining what the causes of the disruption could have been. I'm not sure what went wrong.
sax2 -r -m 0=fglrx -b /usr/share/doc/packages/fglrx/sax2-profile
Thanks in advance,
