Trying to install the ATI driver.
I’m following the step by step instruction posted on the wiki openSUSE. The 1-click install to be more precise.
1st step is to run the online update.
firly easy even for a newbie like urs truly.
Half way through the update i get an error saying it cannot resolve host ‘ftp.roedu.net’.
Several retries later i decide to skip the update and try to istall the driver.
I download it and run it. I click next next next…and it starts. Couple of seconds later:
An error occurred while initializing the software repository.
System management is locked by the application with pid 5550 (/usr/lib/YaST2/bin/y2base).
Close this application before trying again.
I’m honestly starting to lose it.
I’m new at this…3rd day on linux.
P.S. I’m runing an HP Compaq nx9420 laptop.
