Installing Crossover on OpenSUSE Leap 42.1 (Including FGLRX instructions)

This thread is meant as a guide for those wishing to install Crossover on OpenSUSE Leap 42.1. These steps were followed on a Fresh, un-modified installation of Leap 42.1 using the DVD install method. This guide assumes you have removed the local repository that Zypper may complain it cannot find.

1. Update your OS.
$ sudo zypper update

2. Install Crossover.
$ sudo zypper install

3. Install missing dependencies (reported by cxdiag):
$ sudo zypper install libcapi20-3-32bit fontconfig-32bit libgphoto2-6-32bit libgsm1-32bit liblcms2-2-32bit libopenal1-32bit libOSMesa9-32bit sane-backends-32bit libXcomposite1-32bit libXinerama1-32bit libxslt1-32bit libXxf86vm1-32bit

4. Correct other broken dependencies:

"Title"="Missing 32bit library"
"Description"="This is needed by applications that perform encryption or check online certificates."

$ sudo zypper install libgnutls28-32bit
$ sudo ln -s /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/

"Title"="Missing 32bit library"
"Description"="Needed by some Windows applications to play MP3 files."

NOTE: The only place I found the 32-bit version of this library was in a custom repository for Tumbleweed. Expect that this may not work properly.
$ sudo zypper install

This guide will explain the simple steps of installing FGLRX for newer ATI hardware support.

[b]1. UPDATE your system!
[/b] $ sudo zypper update

[b]2. Install the Geeko FGLRX repository:
[/b] $ sudo cat <<EOF > /etc/zypp/repos.d/fglrx-geeko.repo

[b]3. Install FGLRX:
[/b] $ sudo zypper install fglrx*

4. Reboot.

Thank you Striker!

These instructions are now incorporated into our FAQ. They have a main page:

And, they reside as the most up to date instructions for OpenSUSE, here:

When the next version of OpenSUSE comes out, we'll keep the page for OpenSUSE Leap 42.1 but place the newest instructions on the OpenSUSE page.

Thank you again. This was laid out so well that it took me minutes to pull in the instructions and format them within our wiki.
