Here's another revision of my frequently updated ATi drivers guide which I post on various forums.

This guide will work for installing the ATi Drivers on OpenSuSE 11.0 & 11.1.

The Easy Way

The easiest way for you to install the ATi Drivers would be the one click installer, this doesn't necessarily bring down the latest version of the driver but it if works for you then I suggest that you stick to using it unless you want features that are only in the newest version of the drivers.

ATi One Click Installer

After you've ran through the one click installer, configure OpenSuSE and Sax2 to use the driver.

Log In as Root:

Code:
su
Run the ATi Configuration tool:

Code:
aticonfig --initial -f
Configure Sax2:

Code:
sax2 -r -m 0=fglrx
Exit Root:

Code:
exit
Reboot your system and that's all there is to it, you can verify that the installation worked by running:

Code:
fglrxinfo
as a regular user.
