@Matthias:
It's good, if you have an own opinion. We should thoroughly discuss it.



I look a little further, because our newbees in openSUSE can not deal with the
console. So, the X-Server runs with this patch out of the box. The user can
still create a configuration file, if he so wishes.

If you read this news of today (06.04.2010):

h-open.com (english):

heise.de (german):

Quote from h-online.com: "AMD's proprietary drivers are not as current and fail
to even support series 1.7 of X Server. AMD apparently intends to remedy this
situation in the coming weeks but it is unknown whether the planned
modifications will also provide X Server 1.8 support."

If AMD / ATI has completed the support for the X server, then we can remove the
patch. But we know that we are unfortunately not able to rely on AMD / ATI.

Hmmm, what do you think?
