I have a tech stock suggestion I think the conampy sanmina sci corp symbol {SANM} is a much better  value here than advanced micro' the conampy provides integrated electronics manufacturing services worldwide. the conampy has a market cap of only 900 million but does 7 billion dollars in annual sales the conampy also has 600 million dollars of cash on its balance sheet. the conampy went though a massive overhaul over the last 5 years. the companies earnings are exploding but this has not be reflected in the stock price .I think the stock could get to 100 dollars a share over the next five years the stock trades at 11 dollars a share. I also believe the conampy could be a takeover target.

== Installation ==
+
 
+
===OpenSuSe 12.2 auto install Amd Driver (RADEON HD4000,5000,6000,7000,8000 Serie)===
+
*Update your system
+
*Click on  The "one-click-installer" and open with YaSt
+
 
+
*32bit http://geeko.ioda.net/mirror/amd-fglrx/ymp/amd-ati-fglrx.ymp
+
*64bit http://geeko.ioda.net/mirror/amd-fglrx/ymp/amd-ati-fglrx64.ymp
+
 
+
*Follow instructions then Reboot
+
*Your done!
+
 
+
 
+
 
+
 
+
 
+
 
+
 
+
===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-12-8-x86.x86_64.zip
+
 
+
  unzip amd-driver-installer-12-8-x86.x86_64.zip
+
  chmod +x amd-driver-installer-8.982-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.

I have a tech stock suggestion I think the conampy sanmina sci corp symbol {SANM} is a much better value here than advanced micro' the conampy provides integrated electronics manufacturing services worldwide. the conampy has a market cap of only 900 million but does 7 billion dollars in annual sales the conampy also has 600 million dollars of cash on its balance sheet. the conampy went though a massive overhaul over the last 5 years. the companies earnings are exploding but this has not be reflected in the stock price .I think the stock could get to 100 dollars a share over the next five years the stock trades at 11 dollars a share. I also believe the conampy could be a takeover target.
