Posted on: 09/24/2007 02:19 PM

The Inquirer reports that Novell has released an alpha level Linux video driver for ATI Radeon R5xx/R6xx boards

The software release comes just eight days after AMD open sourced the register specs for the cards. It supports only initial mode settings at the moment, but SUSE developers plan to add support for more hardware, RanR 1.2, video overlay and 2D acceleration soon.
