NOVELL SUSE has released an alpha level video driver for ATI Radeon R5xx/R6xx boards, it says on its website.

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.

Novell's ATI Radeon R5xx/R6xx video drivers are available in a multi-distribution package that supports the Fedora, Mandriva, and all SUSE flavours of Linux. µ
