    You put that in a boot script. On most distros, editing /etc/rc.local is easiest.
    How would I do that? On opensuse there is no file called /etc/rc.local.

      I created this /etc/init.d/mylocalstuff (and made it executable with chmod +x)

      Code:
      #! /bin/sh
      ### BEGIN INIT INFO
      # Provides:          mylocalstuff
      # Required-Start:    $syslog
      # Required-Stop:     $syslog
      # Default-Start:     2 3 4 5
      # Default-Stop:      0 1 6
      # Short-Description: execute my local stuff...
      # Description:       see short description
      ### END INIT INFO
      
      . /etc/rc.status
      
      # Shell functions sourced from /etc/rc.status:
      #      rc_check         check and set local and overall rc status
      #      rc_status        check and set local and overall rc status
      #      rc_status -v     ditto but be verbose in local rc status
      #      rc_status -v -r  ditto and clear the local rc status
      #      rc_failed        set local and overall rc status to failed
      #      rc_reset         clear local rc status (overall remains)
      #      rc_exit          exit appropriate to overall rc status
      
      # First reset status of this service
      rc_reset
      
      case "$1" in
          start)        
      	echo -n "Starting some local stuff"
      	echo "low" > /sys/class/drm/card0/device/power_profile
      	echo "powersave" > /sys/module/pcie_aspm/parameters/policy
      
      	# Remember status and be verbose
      	rc_status -v
      	;;
          stop)
      	echo -n "Shutting some local stuff"
      	echo "default" > /sys/class/drm/card0/device/power_profile
      	echo "default" > /sys/module/pcie_aspm/parameters/policy
      	
      	# Remember status and be verbose
      	rc_status -v
      	;;
          try-restart)
              ## Stop the service and if this succeeds (i.e. the 
              ## service was running before), start it again.
              $0 status >/dev/null &&  $0 restart
      
              # Remember status and be quiet
              rc_status
              ;;
          restart)
              ## Stop the service and regardless of whether it was
              ## running or not, start it again.
              $0 stop
              $0 start
      
              # Remember status and be quiet
              rc_status
              ;;
          force-reload|reload)
      	## Signal the daemon to reload its config. Most daemons
      	## do this on signal 1 (SIGHUP).
      
      	echo -n "Reload some local stuff"
      
              rc_status -v
      
              ;;
          status)
      	echo -n "Checking for some local stuff"
      	RADEON_STATUS=`cat /sys/class/drm/card0/device/power_profile`
      	test "low" = "$RADEON_STATUS"
      	rc_status -v
      	;;
          *)
      	echo "Usage: $0 {start|stop|status|try-restart|restart|force-reload|reload}"
      	exit 1
      	;;
      esac
      rc_exit
      you can now either make it run using YaST (change the runlevels) or make symlinks in /etc/initd/rc*.d

        Thanks for the script droste.
        On another note, on the profile high, oilrush fails miserably, on the lowest settings on a much lower resolution, I get 15fps max and severe graphical corruption making the game unplayable.

            Did you install 32-bit version of Free drivers from Git?

            If not, chances are that you're running 2-year old drivers which do not work well. Oil Rush should work without major glitches, as Unigine benchmarks run just fine.

              Alright how do I install the latest free drivers from git on opensuse and how safe are they to use (stability ect.) ?
              Do I need both the latest 32bit and 64bit drivers?

                If you has an 64bit Enviroment with some 32bit Apps like WINE its recommend to install an 32bit mesa and 64bit mesa.
