Installing ATI drivers in OpenSUSE 11.1

I was trying to install/enable drivers for my ATI video card in OpenSUSE:

1. In my case the typical 1-click-installs didn't work

2. The best way (I guess) is to do it the hard way -- download the driver from the ATI site and manually configure/build/install it; This guide worked for me. Note: for openSUSE 11.1, instead of 103 use 111)

3. All the desktop effects are working now and as a welcome side-effect, is not crashing anymore like it...

before you go for 'make' and 'make install' you must ensure:

a. that you have kernel-source and kernel headers package installed

b. that you have build-essentials installed

c. also check if you've got gcc installed...
