Wow, I missed something.??


I was very surprised to learn this week that AMD bought ATI? And on top of that, there's talk of AMD opening up specs (or a opensource driver?) for 3D specs for R500 and up? I didn't expect that!

And Intel is now maintaining it's own opensource 3D driver for Linux?

I knew already, but it's confirmed once again: a lot can happen in a year time! I'm very curious what nVidia is going to do if this ATI thing is going to happen.. (Ok, nothing probably ;-)

Anyway, time will tell, as always.

I'm trying to get my 3D driver going again on my P4-2800 system, but I seem to have a shared_info problem. if I recompile the 2D driver it's no good when 3D runs, while the old compiled 0.80 driver works OK.. What changed in haiku?

As we speak I'm trying to checkout the complete trunk so I can recompile from scratch (or so) to see what happens. If I get it going again I want to give the high-level 3D engine setup a spin (if possible), I want to see what nouveau has come up with in the past one and a half year in this respect.

Mind you, I have just a few hours per week to spend, so nothing might actually happen. Still: I am interested in this.

Oh, I am trying to get my 'public' Email adres up again (the one still listed on my homepage). Might come in handy again.

Until later. :)


Yay :D

Nice to see you back!
Woah! He's alive!

Nice to hear from you again Rudolf :)
Always nice to see old faces again! I hope you can do a *little* bit of coding for Haiku, as long as it is something you want to do. Just don't stress yourself over it :)

I've certainly taken my shares of breaks from Haiku and other projects/interests, so I know what it is like. But at the end of the day it should be fun, not work.
Hi guys!

Thanks for welcoming me :)

It's good to hear I'm not the only one who took a break from Haiku. I hope I can indeed do a little coding: that's good enough for me these days.

BTW: I just got a Haiku factory build running on a laptop and on my P4-2800: it's much improved since 1.5 years!

Curious how long it will take for the first official alpha release..
