Hi everyone,

As I didn't have much luck getting fglrx to set the external monitor of
my laptop to 1680x1050, I tried if I could do this with the radeon
driver.

I _almost_ succeeded after I upgraded to Xorg 7.3 from the corresponding
OpenSUSE 10.3 repository. The signal to the monitor is 1680x1050.
However, the desktop is still rendered in the laptop panel's native
resolution, 1400x1050.

After an inquiry on the Freenode #radeon channel I was told that the
radeon driver was too old: 6.6.193 whereas the right version to support
RandR 1.2 is 6.7.19x.

Is this updated driver available somewhere for OpenSUSE 10.3?

Use radeonrandr12 driver. Just run "sax2 -r -m 0=radeonrandr12" for
configuration.

Best regards,
Stefan
