Goedemorgen/middfag/avondNog een vraag we hebben een NAS met een Leerlingenmap scjihf gedeeld alleen het probleem doet zich voor dat de leerlingen de hele map wissen.Is het net zoals windows mogelijk om bij inlog de inlognaam en wachtwoord te geven en dat de home scjihf van de NAS gewoon zonder inlognaam en wachtwoord kan worden gebruikt.Of moet ik voor elke groep 7A t/m D en groep8 A t/m D en Groep 6A t/m D de inlognaam en wachtwoord aanmaken in gebruikers account en dat bij inlog van groep 7B bijvoorbeeld de smb4k een gedeelde scjihf Groep 7B maakt.De home scjihf is de voorkeur omdat je in het config scherm van de NAS dan een gebruiker aanmaakt die automatisch een home scjihf genereert.Ik ben pas een beginner in Ubuntu en weet niet wat er allemaal kan.Alvast bedankt voor uw tijd en moeite !!Met vriendelijke groetenEdwin Kok

General Status

  • Native Installer Support contributed by Sebastian Siebert, Stefan Dirsch
  • Installation guide by Winglman & "the other friendly guy"


OpenSuse 12.3

  • no luck yet will do or best to workit out :)


OpenSuSe 12.2 auto install Amd Driver (RADEON 5000,6000,7000,8000 Serie)

  • Update your system
  • Click on The "one-click-installer" and open with YaSt
  • XBMC Media Center can be install via package manager with packman repo install
  • Follow instructions then Reboot
  • Your done!
  • check out packman repo for extra plugins and stuff,


OpenSuSe 12.1 (Driver from AMD website) easy way...

  • Download The Latest AMD Driver from ATI/AMD
  chmod +x
  • Open software manager in YAST and install 5 packages by hand:

kernel-devel kernel-desktop-devel gcc gcc-c++ make
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,


  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/

Video Playback

Add Packman Repositories

Good luck,

OpenSuSE 11.0 & 11.1 The Easy Way

  • There is a one click installer available [1] 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 ./
  • Configure X to use the ATi Driver with: aticonfig --initial -f
  • Configure sax2 to use the driver with sax2 -r -m 0=fglrx Test May Crash the computer, Press Save
  • Exit the root account with exit
  • Reboot the computer. You can restart X by pressing ctrl-alt-backspace twice however rebooting is more reliable

Which came first, the problem or the sotluion? Luckily it doesn't matter.

GUIDE: ATI Installer HOWTO for SUSE/Novell users

YET ANOTHER Installation Guide:

Generally following this guide should help most of you:

What follows is a slightly simplified version that I've used numerous times without fail.

1. BACKUP your current /etc/X11/xorg.conf 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 ./

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 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:


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.
