Driver for an Epson Perfection V500 Photo scanner

I am trying to set this up under OpenSUSE 11.1 and my search for a driver comes up dry. There are a few V series scanner drivers listed when I go to the add list, but the V500 is not among them. Is there anything that will work with this device?

Get the linux driver for the V500 from avasys. They explicitly support the V500 under SuSE 11.1. SuSE needs to update their repos.
