Your softpedia link was broken (I fixed it in my quote). IMHO you need to contact softpedia to ask them where they get their proprietary driver from.
Typically in our forum we try to go to sources that we know the origin .
In addition to the link caf4926 provided, for the ATI proprietary driver, we typically refer our users to this URL: ATI - openSUSE where there are two methods to install the SAME driver:
*]the so-called “easy” way - by installing the driver from a repository - this can lag a new kernel update sometimes, as it may take time for someone to build the driver and package it into a new URL *]the so-called “hardway” (that is not hard) - this is typically the quickest way to get the proprietary driver after a new kernel build, and also during the alpha/beta/milestone release development process.
