--winglman--
 
 
 
===OpenSuSe 12.1 (Driver from AMD website) easy way...===
 
*Download The Latest AMD Driver from ATI/AMD
 
  wget http://www2.ati.com/drivers/linux/amd-driver-installer-12-10-x86.x86_64.zip
 
 
 
  unzip amd-driver-installer-12-10-x86.x86_64.zip
 
  chmod +x amd-driver-installer-9.002-x86.x86_64.run
 
 
 
*Open software manager in YAST and install 5 packages by hand:
 
''kernel-devel kernel-desktop-devel gcc gcc-c++ make'' <br />
 
OR use the terminal and run:
 
  sudo zypper in kernel-devel kernel-desktop-devel gcc gcc-c++ make kernel-syms
 
*reboot
 
*'''If radeon driver is active''' you must blacklist it, add this to boot paramaters (during grub startup menu):
 
  radeon.modeset=0 blacklist=radeon 3
 
*This will disable radeon driver and boot into runlevel 3. SU to get root, run mkinitrd to make sure radeon stays blacklisted.
 
*(Comment) in case the above method does not help, you may try add to /etc/modprobe.d/50-blacklist.conf the following line
 
  blacklist radeon
 
 
 
*(Comment) Either way, when your linux booted, you should check whether the radeon kernel module is not loaded, run
 
  lsmod | grep radeon
 
if nothing comes up you are good to go
 
*cd to directory where proprietary "amd-driver-installer" is,
 
type: 
 
  sh amd-driver-installer-*.run
 
*install default (do not generate distibution package)
 
*verify /usr/share/ati fglrx-install.log, at the end of the file you should see "build succeeded with return value 0 duplicating results into driver repository...done.
 
*in terminal type:
 
  aticonfig --initial -f
 
*then run:
 
  /sbin/shutdown -r now
 
 
 
===To Uninstall===
 
Open terminal,SU to get root,type:
 
  sh /usr/share/ati/amd-uninstall.sh
 
 
 
==Video Playback==
 
Add Packman Repositories
 
*Open YAST
 
*Open Software Source,Click add,From URL
 
*and add this url    http://packman.inode.at/suse/openSUSE_12.1
 
*This will provide extra packages for video playback and other stuff
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Good luck,

===OpenSuSE 11.0 & 11.1 The Easy Way===
 
*There is a one click installer available [http://en.opensuse.org/ATI_Driver_HOWTO#1-click_install_for_openSUSE_11.1.2C_11.0_and_10.3] for both of these OS's, this will give you access to a working ATi driver however it may not be the latest one available.
 
 
 
EDIT: This is currently not working. ATi Repository is down for OpenSUSE.
 
 
 
===OpenSuSE 11.0 & 11.1 With The Latest Driver===
 
 
 
You can easily install the latest versions of the ATi driver on OpenSuSE 11.0+.
 
 
 
*Download The Latest ATi Driver.
 
*Log in as Root using su
 
*Install some dependencies with: '''zypper in kernel-source gcc make patch''' ''(I think, this needs more documentation & explanation in and of itself)''
 
*Install the ATi Driver with: '''sh ./ati-driver-installer-VERSION.run'''
 
*Configure X to use the ATi Driver with: '''aticonfig --initial -f'''
 
*Configure sax2 to use the driver with sax2 -r -m 0=fglrx <b>Test May Crash the computer, Press Save</b>
 
*Exit the root account with exit
 
*Reboot the computer. <i>You can restart X by pressing ctrl-alt-backspace twice however rebooting is more reliable</i>
 
 
 
Which came first, the problem or the sotluion? Luckily it doesn't matter.
 
 
 
===GUIDE: ATI Installer HOWTO for SUSE/Novell users===
 
http://www.suse.de/~sndirsch/ati-installer-HOWTO.html
 
 
 
 
 
===YET ANOTHER Installation Guide:===
 
 
 
Generally following this guide should help most of you:
 
http://linux.wordpress.com/2006/05/12/suse-101-ati-drivers-installation/
 
 
 
What follows is a slightly simplified version that I've used numerous times without fail.
 
 
 
 
 
1. BACKUP your current <code>/etc/X11/xorg.conf</code> file, preferably to your home directory. Now change to a command shell by hitting Ctrl-Alt-F1.
 
 
 
 
 
2. Remove any previous versions of the ATI driver by either
 
 
 
If you have installed a previous ATI driver version without using RPM packages (or if you don't know if you have or not), type the following:
 
 
 
cd /usr/share/ati
 
sh ./fglrx-uninstall.sh
 
 
 
Otherwise, and even if you've done the above type the following,
 
 
 
rpm -e $(rpm -qa | grep fglrx)
 
 
 
 
 
3. Change the directory containing the downloaded ati-driver...run file.
 
 
 
 
 
4. Change the permissions of the driver file to executable by typing the following:
 
 
 
chmod +x ./ati-driver...
 
 
 
Use the tab button to complete the rest of the ati-driver... file name.
 
 
 
 
 
5. Create a SUSE RPM (info is for 32 bit version) from the file by typing
 
 
 
./ati-driver-installer-*.run --buildpkg SuSE/SUSE101-IA32
 
 
 
 
 
6. Install the created fglrx... file by typing
 
 
 
rpm -ivh fglrx_...(hit tab again to get full name)...
 
 
 
 
 
7. The following command will update your library cache, you're recommended to run it:
 
 
 
ldconfig
 
 
 
 
 
8. Now run the ati config commands:
 
 
 
aticonfig --initial --input=/etc/X11/xorg.conf
 
 
 
 
 
9. Now run the Sax2 setup.
 
 
 
sax2 -r -m 0=fglrx
 
 
 
You may wish to alter the refresh rates and DPI info with this, otherwise just hit save. DO NOT hit the test button, it regually crashes my machine when i do...
 
 
 
 
 
10. Reboot you machine. Do not use the reboot command, again this messes my machine up on the next boot for whatever reason... try
 
 
 
shutdown -h now
 
 
 
 
 
11. Boot up again, and check the new /etc/X11/xorg.conf file, compare it to your old one, and make any changes if you know what you're doing.
