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.)

3D acceleration is a noble goal, but can we at least get drivers that can properly handle HD resolutions and 2D acceleration?


You weren't specific about your particular needs - but I'll assume you're either using some recent video chip for which Haiku is still missing a driver (namely, a Radeon HD or nVidia G80 or newer chips), or simply uninformed.

Haiku does already have "simple 2D acceleration and modesetting" with support for HD screen resolutions. There's a pretty decent range of chips supported as well - but there is currently zero 3d hardware acceleration support in Haiku (except perhaps for Rudolf's experimental 3d nvidia driver, but it doesn't work with Haiku's opengl stack).
