Owners of FGLRX card using openSUSE 12.1 – cleanup your repositories

December 21st, 2013 by

Important
If you’re still using openSUSE 12.1 and you have one day installed the AMD/ATI FGLRX long time ago, you certainly forget to adjust the new location of the repository.

My server indicate that still around 154 Geekos have their FGLRX repository pointing to the old urls :

http://geeko.ioda.net/mirror/ati/openSUSE_12.1/

The location changed long time ago, when AMD decide to split the drivers in two part (legacy HD2xxx-HD4xxx and normal HD5xxx or above).
The worst things, is that those are trying to refresh almost every half hour, generating 404 errors on my server, without help them to get the right driver.

I’ve made a call at that time to help to spread the information. Would be nice, if any of you could spread this reminder to your fellows.
Cause I can decide by a redirection, which gpu you have :-)

The new location for 12.1 was setup as following :
For HD2xxx-HD4xxxx legacy :http://geeko.ioda.net/mirror/amd-fglrx-legacy/openSUSE_12.1/

For HD5xxx or above : http://geeko.ioda.net/mirror/amd-fglrx/openSUSE_12.1/
