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.)

There was work done on the new OS kernel years ago to support vesa 3.0 which allows for alot more modesetting power. Maybe the haiku devs could investigate such a feature to update the existing vesa 2.0 driver with a more powerful vesa 3.0. I know the source code it still in the newos trunk I looked at it just a few days ago.I just don't have the needed deep system knowledge to get it working.
