    Yes, I have a /etc/X11/xorg.conf file, and i have a /var/log/Xorg.0.log file too. I can not paste the contents, because it is so long.

    sister@linux-rrhw:/var/log> dmesg | grep radeon
    [ 20.112144] [drm] Initialized radeon 1.31.0 20080528 for 0000:02:00.0 on minor 0

    I do not quite understand where can I insert the following line: radeon.modeset=0

    it is possible with another distribution would work better with this card, but my sister loves this. I do not know (unfortunately) this system to solved this problem.
    if you want, I can copy the contents of the xorg file.
    The graphics are very slow. For example when i drag a window with the mouse. The motion is very slow. I don't know what can I do!?

    I think you should be able to post the whole thing if you put it in code tags.

    I'm not particularly familiar with opensuse, but when you boot up, there will be a GRUB (the bootloader) menu with a countdown before it boots the default kernel. Usually you press ESC, highlight the default kernel, press 'e' to edit, append the boot option to the end, and press 'b' to boot.

    I couldn't find a good tutorial with screenshots for suse, but here is Ubuntu's. It'll look a little different, but the principle is the same.

    You can also edit it to be the default using YaST.

    Also, when you ran glxinfo | grep render, there should have be two lines of output. Outside of the direct rendering, what was the other line? If it said Software Rasterizer, then the CPU is being used to rasterize polygons (turn em into pixels) rather than the GPU.

    This is not an area I'm too familiar with, but you might try in the device section switching to XAA or EXA. It's not clear to me what the default is.

    Code:
    Section "Device"
    BoardName "Radeon X1300/X1550"
    Driver "radeonhd"
    Identifier "Device[0]"
    VendorName "ATI"
    Option "AccelMethod" "EXA"
    EndSection
    And also try adding this to ServerFlags
    Code:
    Section "ServerFlags"
    Option "AllowMouseOpenFail" "on"
    Option "ZapWarning" "on"
    Option "AIGLX" "On"
    EndSection
    And this section
    Code:
    Section "Extensions"
            Option "Composite" "On"
    EndSection
    The latter two taken from the Gentoo RadeonHD wiki.

    Thank you very much, i tried what you said, and then I've put the Compiz Fusion. Interesting because the Compiz is running "normally". it is not quite like Nvidia, but usable. I think the other Linux releases the video is no longer functioning, but now, maybe working well.
    Thank you again for your help

    hi,
    i have a new problem. I connected my computer with the TV. I use RCA cable. I connected this cable to the video card, and the tv gives nothing. How can I send the signal to the TV? I would like to see on the TV as I have on monitor.

    (same with the SVideo)

    I have seen in opensuse at the begining a video slow work, but after install compiz it goes faster, i do not know why but it goes faster, but when seeing videos i need to turn off the compiz because is faster video players without compiz. That is the only problem i have had with some ATI video cards. I have a Radeon.

    You may run 'Sax2 -r' as root to configure the video card with 3d Accel. Try to configure with this maybe is usefull for you. And for the tv try to play with the Xinerama options, or reboot the computer with the tv cable plug into the laptop.

    yes, you're right... the movies are unpalatable. Everything was perfectly with the earlier release. Do you think reinstall an earlier Linux is a stupid idea? I have a lot of trouble with this release. probable that the system is perfect, but this machine is too old for this. I can not send the signal to the tv... But this is only the beginning. Now I try to watch a video file.
    I can not watch movies. I haven't got picture. I have only blank screen. I try to see movies with kaffeine and dragon player too. The minutes are running ahead with incredible speed. At first I thought, this was a codec problem. but I'm nowhere to be found a codec for kaffeine.
