SUSE 10.1: ATI Drivers Installation

Filed under
SUSE
HowTos

Got my SUSE Linux 10.1 up and runnin and already enjoying, though still got to go through all the customization. I will probably post a review on my experience with SUSE 10.1. But one thing for sure, the ATI drivers gave me a little kick, before I came up with these instructions, that I hope will work on most of the computers. Remember that I was trying to install these drivers as to later be able to install and launch Xgl/Compiz on desktop.

This time I decided to make the howto with more pics, thinking that maybe this way it will be easier for you guys to understand what is going on. At least I tried my best, well nearly. Here we go.

As of writing this I am running SUSE Linux 10.1 (maybe you already forgot), x86_64 platform (AMD64), with my ATI Radeon X800 series PCI-E interface on DFI nForce4 Ultra based motherboard. The latest driver version is 8.24.8

5 Reasons To Buy Android Over Apple's iOS and Microsoft's Windows

With Android, it’s a numbers game. Plain and simple. You want choice in devices, Android gives you that. Sure, it’s a bit of a minefield and you might come across some brands that you’ve never heard off, or incredibly convincing fakes that run a fully working version of Android (no counterfeiter has managed to successfully load a dodgy version of iOS on to a device yet).
