How can I compile the GIT version of radeon driver on openSuSE

Hi, folks!

May I ask you, how can I download and compile the GIT version of Radeon driver on openSuSE 11.1 machine... and does someone knows which packages should be pre-installed?

I found some information but it is related only to Debian/Ubuntu systems...

Thank you!

To build you are going to need to have your environment prepared for building by installing gcc and related components. From the administration tools you can find the add/remove software components option and then select the view that shows you package categories. Then select the gcc tools and related components. Also, install git. Then read the documentation on how to get a git repository. Then, download the driver files, and read its README after unpacking it if it has a README. Most packages require a configure, make, and make install. From the directory that you unpacked the archive:

> /path/to/directory/.configure
> make
> sudo make install
> su
# make install
