[opensuse-factory] 7.2-1.2 in Beta1?

Hi all,

just installed Beta 1 onto my Notebook and almost everything was working
fine except My notebook runs a ATI X 1600 Mobility and while this
chip isnt supported by itself (radeon does work only up to X850,
none of the X1x00-Chips are supported) Sax2 chooses VESA Framebuffer for

I dont have to tell you that the framebuffer is very slow, it looks also
very ugly, because the notebook has a native resolution of 1280x800,
which is not usable with the framebuffer.

So i wanted to install the proprietary ATI-driver 8.29.6, which even can
make a package for SUSE 10.2. But from the console Sax2 cannot start
with sax2 -r -m 0=fglrx, because the fglrx-driver is detecting a 7.2-1.2 instead of a 7.1.99. I found this in the SaX.log:

(II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers//
(II) Module fglrx: vendor="FireGL - ATI Technologies Inc."
compiled for 7.1.0, module version = 8.29.6
Module class: X.Org Video Driver
ABI class: X.Org Video Driver, version 1.0
[atiddxSetup] X version mismatch - detected 7.2.-1.2, required
(II) UnloadModule: "fglrx"
(II) Unloading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers//
(EE) Failed to load module "fglrx" (module requirement mismatch, 0)

At any other place in this and other logs is stated as Version
7.1.99, where is this 7.2-1.2 from? And what can i do to have the right
resolution (with or without the fglrx-driver)?

Thanks, Jens
