Novell Pioneers a Faster Way to Deliver Linux Drivers
Novell introduces a new, faster way for Linux users to get device drivers and for vendors to get those drivers to them. (Linux-Watch)Novell Inc. has come up with a faster way to deliver Linux hardware drivers, and driver updates, to Linux users. With the new driver process, users can get drivers independently of kernel updates, and vendors can more easily develop and deliver device drivers for Novells SUSE Linux Enterprise products. In addition, the new Linux process enables hardware and software vendors to provide their products Linux drivers and driver updates to customers directly, while still being integrated with SUSEs YaST operating system setup and configuration tool.
The new process is simply another way for us to help customers run their businesses reliably and cost effectively," Kurt Garloff, head Linux architect for Novell, said in a statement.
