    Default Απ: installing ati graphics card

    From which site have you downloaded this driver?
    Look Linux is not windows and all fuctions are different. I know that you are new in openSUSE, but you must forget the windows way of installation.

    To install a programm
    Code:
    su
    Code:
    # zypper install <program>
    To install a repository

    Code:
    su
    Code:
    # zypper addrepo -f <url of repository>
    Code:
    # zypper refresh

    Program for opensuse is for example (only) vlc.
    Repository is a group of programmes which update, upgrade etc themselves. If you go to yast-->software-->software repositories, you will see them. For example pacman is a repository. It is the package manager of your system. About drivers responsible is oldcpu. Because driver is also a repository and it has some libraries who you must install, I have written about the installation process. But which driver you must install oldcpu knows.
