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.)

Thanks for posting this, hopefully it'll get some exposure now. Check out the other bouties too!

I might add, a similar port was completed for AROS, for $1082... (I already contacted this developer, and he was unable to work on the bounty, but said he'd offer advice/help)

People who are good on working on video drivers are few and far between. I am quite happy with the performance of VESA graphics on Haiku, but it would be nice if there is just one way to perform 3d graphics across all video systems with speed of graphics the only thing affect by your graphics hardware.

Hope someone works on this bounty soon, I know it will not be me. I am getting headaches just making my CRAMDISK working under Haiku and it is less than 300 lines of code.

The video gods are a class of programmers onto themselves.
