User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:19.0) Gecko/20100101

Installing final openSuSE 12.2 with this card, only graphical resolution
possible: 320X200; console resolution possible to show 1280x1024 (very sharp).

Tried the following:
- added repo for legacy fglrx driver for this card and installed 64bit driver
- executed 'aticonfig'; result: no supported card detected

So the software part of legacy driver is installed, but the hardware seems not
be detected (since it is listed by vendor and product id via lspci -v) with the
exact chipset rv410 and product title Radeon x700 Pro PCIE.

So, what can I do to resolve this issue?

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. deinstall of radeon and mesa drivers
2. install fglrx driver from repository
3. execute aticonfig with no card detected result
Actual Results:
Xserver is actually not usable; graphical administration w/ 320x200 is an
absolutely no-go. Console adminisntration works very good; nevertheless on this
machine I need the graphical interface.

Expected Results:
At minimum I expected any other 'behaviour' or 'feedback' from the system in
case the fglrx legacy driver hadbeen installed, but nothing changed.
At best I expected the proper graphical interface to be up and running smoothly
w/ 3D support.

I am wondering why this card works with PCLinuxOS Full Monty installed right
out of the box; but also with no 3D support. What can I do in this case?
I tried different Linux derivates, but (nearly) all with the same result.
On all their consoles the aticonfig command show no supported card detected.
AND, I had this card alredy running under SuSE Linux with version 10.X.
What has changed since then?
Does it support 64bit systems?
Do I have to do some special BIOS settings (Disable PCIE Support + search PCI
Port for graphics)? I tried it already but did not help.
