openSUSE 11 KDE 4.1 tip: faster graphics

Having an old ATI Radeon 7200 is not much fun, but for the price is good.

I installed KDE 4.1 on the T42 and after updating everything it felt so damn slow, just because of the desktop’s theme (at least what I noticed after trying all of them). So searching the web, I found a great fix for this in the openSUSE website:

1- Edit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist
2- Right there, blacklist the ‘fglrx’ driver.
