Graphics card driver

My laptop is HP Compaq nc8030. My graphics card is ati. I am looking for its driver in suse.

How could I get it?

go here and get the driver Advanced Micro Devices, AMD – Global Provider of Innovative Microprocessor, Graphics and Media Solutions
then follow these steps hope it helps

  1. Download the driver installer from ATI.

  2. Run the installer, don’t choose custom, agree to everything.

  3. Log out, and Switch to the first terminal (Ctrl+Alt+F1)

  4. Login as root.

  5. run init 3 to switch to commandline linux with no Xwindows.

init 3

  1. Check the X session (Ctrl+Alt+F7) and make sure the login page isn’t there. If it is, Sax2 will fail. If this happens, reboot, switch to Ctrl+Alt+F1, login as root again and run init 3

  2. Init 3 will hang on “init 3 has been …”. Just hit enter and it will return your # prompt.

  3. move your existing xorg.conf file to a backup.

mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf-001

The reason you do this is to get rid of your existing X configuration file. Don’t worry, you will be creating a new one soon.

  1. Generate a new xorg.conf for ATI radeon by running:

sax2 -r -m 0=radeon

  1. Now that there is a new xorg.conf, run

aticonfig --initial --input=/etc/X11/xorg.conf

  1. Now run:

sax2 -r -m 0=fglrx

This tells Sax2 you want to use the cool 3d schmeck.

  1. REBOOT!

Hope it helps
