Are you affiliated with AMD?
I had allot of help, but no success.
Yes it was the (then) latest close source driver.
The default drivers installed on suse for my hardware, worked fine in FF but no 3D.
I really hope to have more luck with ubuntu and the 12.6
Then you can activate sid and install fglrx from there. There is a point release which works.Code:wget -NP /tmp http://kanotix.com/files/fix/oss-test/purge-binary-driver.sh sh /tmp/purge-binary-driver.sh
On openSUSE (which I've ben using since 11.1 or so, with fglrx):
Personally I don't blacklist radeon, I just switch to a tty and issue "init 3" as root prior to installing the drivers. Otherwise there is a conflict of some sort with the GL libraries, and 3D hardware acceleration doesn't work.

Does not tell me what the hardware looks like. This is part of why AMD bundled the "atigetsysteminfo.sh" script that should be located at "/usr/share/fglrx/"
However, some People would foolishly expect all media files to play regardless of system specifications. A desktop with 2.5gHz to 3.0gHz is useless if the System Memory is slow ( DDR2 or DDR memory).
It is impossible that fglrx 12-6 runs with debian wheezy without libpciaccess hack.
I think the OP is clueless and so are these other ATI/AMD fanatics. I checked out a Thinkpad T500 laptop and the suspend doesn't work. I can't help think graphics drivers has something to do with it. If one booted up Windows 7 with the same hardware and tried suspend (place the lid down and then lift it up), it would probably wake up properly. I guess people here who own ATI hardware just don't do anything with their computer. Maybe they just stare at it all day or play the odd game that doesn't require much or something.
ATI/AMD drivers suck quite a lot. I'm not sure what happens with Nvidia-driver equipped laptops but I admit, Nvidia is a POS too when it comes to the most recent Nvidia laptops. But, there's already those in the community bashing Nvidia. It seems that ATI/AMD has a ton of apologists defending them all the time while everyone jumps on the bash-Nvidia bandwagon. They both suck when it comes to Linux because support is abysmal for either one.
Doesnt work in what sense? Machine does not resume at all? Or just the screen is blank on resume? In the latter case you just needed to increase the brightness a bit to get it working. Annoying workaround : YES. But a bug report with proper description would help more dont you feel?
