Sweet! Successfully installed & worked ATI 9.10 driver!!!

Great day! Finally found a way to installed ATI 9.10 driver for my integrated ATI Radeon HD3200 graphic card,and get it worked!!!

I’m using 11.2 KDE4.3.1 x86-64 on my Compaq Presario CQ40-115AU notebook.

Do it with ‘su’ :

  • zypper in kernel-source linux-kernel-headers kernel-syms module-init-tools make gcc

  • cd into yr driver location like : cd /home/username/Documents

  • sh ./ati-driver-installer-9-10-x86.x86_64.run

  • /usr/bin/aticonfig --initial

  • Reboot

It just works!!!

Hey I thought this will never work till ATI 9.11 driver release,but I found thread from ‘maxge’ here : ATI Radeon Proprietary Driver Isnt work in OpenSuSE 11.2 - Page 2 - openSUSE Forums

Thanks bro,u save my day. rotfl!

so in order to get all the dependencies necesary I must zypper, sorry if I sound like a “noob” (since I am XD) but what does it all means? Could you give us some details for rookies like me?
Thanks in advance. :slight_smile:

I’m a noob too :slight_smile:
I just follow the thread I found (posted in my 1st thread).

seems having the kernel-syms package is what makes it different from building a fglrx rpm compared to previous releases of 11.X and i’m not sure that all the dependancies that are brought in are necessary.

installing kernel-syms brings ALL the devel packages for each flavor of the kernel (default, pae, desktop, xen) which are probably unnecessary.

hope someone will address this soon, because the “recommends” seem targeted for kernel devs instead of users.

So i’ve managed to install the Ati driver, but now i have no sound, at all, my video card is Ati Radeon 4670 HD, and my driver is 9.10 i belive, anyways, any ideas?
