BeOS & Derivatives A few months ago, a bounty for porting Gallium3D to Haiku was submitted. As the target sum of $2000 has been reached, what's needed now is a developer interested in doing the actual coding work. (Gallium3D is a cross-platform video driver API, on which an increasing number of open-source Linux drivers are based.)

You don't need to port DRM, however Nouveau Gallium3D driver uses libdrm interface. You can implement your own libdrm-like module which will have all card init/control code and expose it through the libdrm interface. This however is a huge task and worth its own bounty. AROS port of Nouveau uses DRM with modifications kept to minimum so that we can relatively easy integrate upstream work.
