I am very new to linux and opensuse and I really have no idea how to install drivers for my Radeon 5750. I looked on the website, downloaded it, but to my basic understanding I need a .rpm file not a .run file. Are there any guides on this? I need help!
For instructions on how to install the Ati drivers from the Repositories, see my post here:
openSUSE Forums - View Single Post - Difficulties with ATI 4890 installing drivers.
copy the driver (atixxxxxx.run) to tmp folder, open terminal (console) and go to tmp folder, type su <enter> and type root password <enter>.
Now type sh ati* to start installation. (You must sure you have install gcc and kernel source from the installation disk). Wait until process finish. Close the window instalation, and in the console/terminal type aticonfig --initial, restart computer to load fglrx driver.
Did you try the 1-click install ?
goto 1-click-collection - openSUSE-Community and click on the link to install ATI drivers.
But this file is not installable for checksum problem !!!
How can i solve this ???
A random post, and we have no idea what you need.
Post your repo list:
zypper lr -d
and any details about your system.
Webpage : ATI drivers - openSUSE
Click Install : Installs ATi driver for HD 2000-series and newer.
In not installable for this errot:
“la checksum per il file /var/chache/zypp/packages/ATI Reposity/i586/x11-video-fglrxG02-8.681.28.1.i586.rpm
ma la checksum attuale è 6a53384f8e1c1a78aabf2a0a049caa0d3413573.
Ciò significa che il file è stato modificiato per erroe o da un utalnte maal intanzionato dopo che il proprietario del reposity l’ha firmato.
Utilizzare lo stesso questo file?”
If i mark Yes, new error
Il pacchetto x11-video-fglrxG02-8.681-28.1 sembra essersi corrotto durante il trasferimento.
Various users have reported encountering a checksum problem with the ATI rpm.
If you download the .run file and install “the hardway” this problem does not happen. But one does need to first install kernel-source and kernel-syms (of the same version as one’s kernel), and also install linux-kernel-headers and under YaST > Software > Software Management select the “pattern” “base developement” and install all those applications (providing gcc, make, etc … ). Link with instructions for installing “the hardway” (which is not hard) using the ATI .run file is here: ATI drivers - openSUSE
