    How To: ATI Drivers OpenSUSE 11.1

    This Guide Is No Longer Maintained, For The New Guide Click Here

    There have been some problems getting the official fglrx drivers to work on OpenSUSE 11.1, I have made this (rather basic) walk through on how to get them to work correctly. This Works For 32 & 64-bit Releases

    Code:
    wget https://a248.e.akamai.net/f/674/9206/0/www2.ati.com/drivers/linux/64bit/ati-driver-installer-9-1-x86.x86_64.run
    - Download The Driver

    Run these as Root:

    Code:
    zypper in kernel-source gcc make patch
    - These are the dependencies of the driver, the packages are approximately 70-75MB overall.

    Code:
    sh ati-driver-installer-9-1-x86.x86_64.run
    - Run through the installer choosing the automatic steps

    Code:
    aticonfig --initial -f
    Configure Xorg.

    Code:
    sax2 -r -m 0=fglrx
    Configure Sax2 with the fglrx driver.

    Reboot your system and everything should work, you can verify this with (run as normal user):

    Code:
    fglrxinfo
    Updated for 9.1, 64-bit users no longer have to link the 32-bit DRI either 64-bit now works and FPS in 32-bit applications should be working as expected.
