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.)

I do not disagree with anything you just said :-) Please understand that it's not my intention to say the developers must work on more/better 2D drivers. I, personally, just feel it's a better use of resources and a more logical goal than 3D acceleration for one or two models of GPUs.

I do not appear to have opened up a ticket for improved radeon support. My only previous ticket concerning video support, though, still seems to be open:

Maybe an enhancement ticket is still worth creating, though.

Indeed ;)

And with that, this discussion reminded me that there's a new patch for Intel N10 that I haven't tested yet:
