    When you cannot boot with Kernel from Kernel:HEAD you can boot with a rescue Kernel ...
    It seems I instaleld all.

    I added the two links to yast. Then did and update.

    When I run glxgears, it says
    WARNING: Direct Rendering is NOT enabled

    Should I unstall something ?

    When I looked in yast2 I noticed that also the radeon HD drivers are installed.

    System info also still says no 3D support

    One thing I can think off, I am picking the wrong suuse from the grub screen ?
    I am now picking the one with the highest number.

    Check in your xorg log and see which driver is actually being used.

    yast then updated my system.
    I just checked, as far as I can tell I have all the packages ? installed.

    I did notice I also have the radeonHD driver installed, should I unstall that one?

    It seems to me I can't remove my last reply.

    Maybe a mod can ?

    I wouldn't worry about the extra post.

    Can you maybe pastebin your xorg log and dmesg output ? You may be missing firmware or something...

    A small update.

    Today tried booting the newest (from the link) SUSE kenrnel, but
    now, no more desktop.

    Suse starts after I select it in the Grub screen.

    I see one Suse screen then the screen goes blank, and monitor switched off.
    Sound is still working,I hear the sound when normally the desktop loads.

    Later today, I might try if the SUSE fail-safe will start.

    Or start over by adding the two links, to this working version.

    I spent allot of time in YAST yesterday.
    The tip about making sure you keep a working kernel behind saved me.

    I am sure I did not change anything, but thats what we all say.
