NVIDIA and ATI on openSUSE 11.0

Sorry, this one's mostly a rambling bucket of links and a newsgroup post replicated.

With the coming of 11.0 juste hours away now, many people will be asking
on how to install NVIDEA and ATI.

This is the posting that explains it all.

The URL with the information

The text version:
ATI drivers 1-click-install : http://opensuse-community.org/ati.ymp
NVIDEA drivers 1-click-install : http://opensuse-community.org/nvidia.ymp

Via the command line:
su -c "OCICLI http://opensuse-community.org/ati.ymp"
su -c "OCICLI http://opensuse-community.org/nvidia.ymp"
This also shows on how to use the _OneClickInstall_on_CLI_

Another via cli:
zypper sa http://download.nvidia.com/opensuse/11.0 nvidia
zypper in x11-video-nvidiaG01

zypper sa http://www2.ati.com/suse/11.0 ati
zypper in x11-video-fglrxG01

No manual configuration of xorg.conf or switching on Xgl required to get
compiz goodness, just launch simple-ccsm and enable compiz from there
after installing the drivers.

Missing window titles on compiz:
