    how to install ATI Radeon HD 5770 driver?

    Dear OpenSUSE experts:

    I just installed OpenSUSE 11.2 x86_64 on a new computer with ATI Radeon HD 5770 graphics card. I have included ati in the update repositories. I saw that x11-video-fglrxG02 and ati-fglrxG02-kmp-desktop are NOT checked, so, I selected both in YAST2, then, OpenSUSE started to download the required files. but, in the middle of downloading, I got a "wrong digest", said that ati-fglrxG02-kmp-desktop has wrong checksum.

    What could be the problem? How do I resolve this issue?

    Have you tried downloading it again? Sometimes the repos go offline.
    If you are still having problems, look at:
    Hardware - Installing ATI Drivers - openSUSE Forums

    Thanks a lot whych!

    I tried the update in YAST2 yesterday and today - same problem.

    So, I install the ati driver by following the link you posted. At the end, when I typed fglrxinfo, I did see the ati radeon driver listed. But, I am wondering why in YAST2, it still does not list the ati-fglrxG02-kmp-desktop and x11-video-fglrxG02 as checked?

    Because you installed by hand not by Yast. Yast has no knowledge of the package. Also because you installed by hand you will have to reinstall after a Kernel update. So be sure you keep the somewhere you can get it from the command line and know how to run it.
