HP Pavilion tx2532la hardware information.

As I lately stated at https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=564953#c11
"Hello. Everything was fine till I updated the original kernel 2.6.31.5 to
2.6.31.8-0.1-desktop through Online Update. The radeonhd from
http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/X11:/Drivers:/Video/openSUSE_11.2/x86_64/xorg-x11-driver-video-radeonhd-1.3.0_20091124_6387ab4-4.1.x86_64.rpm
hangs the computer as referred above.
So, I do not know what to do:
1) radeonhd hangs my computer: we are back to the begining;
2) fbdev provides me a low resolution (it is really uncomfortable in a 12.1"
screen) and does not let me rotate the screen;
3) ATI's fglrx 8.661 from ATI's repository is not updated to
2.6.31.8-0.1-desktop, and its equivalent Catalyst 9.10 from ATI's web doesn't
compile for 2.6.31.8-0.1-desktop. Catalyst 9.11 & 9.12 do compile for
2.6.31.8-0.1-desktop, but at the time I need to rotate my screen the module
fails as you might see at

(I am aware that this issue is not of your concern: it is just a comment to
illustrate my profound frustration), and, although I have reported this issue
to AMD/ATI and the fglrx Community, it seems they do not care about.
Thus, I have to chose between downgrading my kernel and left unfix some issues,
although gain the option to have a working radeonhd/fglrx-8.661, or upgrade the
kernel to get solved some issues but be restricted to use a Tablet PC as a
common PC or risk to hang my SO, or lost the video.
I'll downgrade for now.
Suggest me what to do next concerning this bug (do I have to re-open this or
open a new one?) so I could help you as much as I could to solve this issue.
I am very sorry for bother you again, and I give you my thanks for your help in
advance:
Thanks."

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. update kernel to 2.6.31.8 (certaintly, into a HP Pavilion tx2532la)
2.
3.
Actual Results:
The system aborts, black screen, unresponsive to Ctrl+Alt+Backspace and ACPI
stimuli.

Expected Results:
Working system.
