If you install it with yast it should update with every update on
suse. You just need to add the repo that you install it from. Same
goes with ubuntu/debian/mint etc... New ati cards have a decent
drivers now that they are amd made. Pre AMD made gpus will have horrid
support which should be expected. (The same happened with nvidia back
in the day when they acquired 3dfx so the haters out there need to
shut up)
