  Novell Delivers Linux Device Driver Breakthrough
 
  Novell announced availability and details of a process that is desined to solve Linux device driver compatibility issues. The new driver process allows customers to obtain drivers independently of Novell kernel updates and supplies a straightforward approach third parties can use when developing device drivers for Novell's SUSE Linux Enterprise products.

The new Linux driver process developed by Novell allows hardware and software vendors to provide Linux drivers and driver updates for their products to customers directly and transparently, in a way that is completely integrated with SUSE Linux Enterprise delivery and support.

"The new process is simply another way for us to help customers run their businesses reliably and cost effectively," said Kurt Garloff, head Linux architect for Novell. "Working with the open source community and our hardware and software partners, and welcoming the participation of other Linux distributors, we are allowing customers to efficiently obtain needed drivers independent of our SUSE Linux Enterprise release cycles. We will continue to support third parties delivering open source drivers to kernel.org for release directly with our Linux products, but this new process fills the driver gap between releases that can be critical to customer and partner success."

The new Linux driver process reflects Novell's ongoing commitment to easing and facilitating Linux adoption and delivering value to the open enterprise. Third-party hardware and software vendors will also benefit from a simpler driver provision process and more customers being able to update hardware and software without waiting for Linux platform updates.

Novell's Linux driver process will be included with SUSE Linux Enterprise 10 when it ships this summer and is available now for SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 9 SP3.
