Originally posted by: pvh The procedure for installing the fglrx driver under openSUSE is described here:
If you want to do it manually, you will need to install the kernel-devel packages, they have the header files. You will also need the rpm-build package to generate the package.
You do not have a choice for beta drivers, then to do it through the command line.
Its not that hard though.
Make sure you have all the files needed.
Then download catalyst driver, extract the zip file, then right clcik on the run file, select properties, and go to the second tab.
Check the box: can be executed ( or something like that, I am translating, so it might be a bit different.
Close all programs and open the console.
Log in and become root.
Now the desktop is gone.
Login again, and become root
name@linux-n2go:~>youre log in name
Commandline turns red to warn you, youre working as root.
Now go to the folder to were you downloaded the beta driver.
cd [youre name]
cd = change directorie, ls gives an overvieuw of the files in a folder,
so you can see what to type after cd
The commandprompt now looks something like this:
When the installer is finished:
linux-n2go:/home/naam/Downloads # reboot
Now youre pc will reboot and you should have the amd drivers installed.
Do not use this method to install the non beta drivers, use the one click install for that.
