Haiku, yT and Zoidberg Sharing

by @ 10:13 pm on 7/19/2004. Filed under Haiku

There have been a couple of news bits concerning commits to Haiku’s CVS.

First, François Revol of yellowTab has submitted a patch to bash to the Haiku repository. This is a tremendous show of community support from yT, and they are to be commended so that this trend of sharing code continues between them and the open source camps.

Second, Nathan Whitehorn, on behalf of Dr. Zoidberg Enterprises, are now officially donating nearly 60,000 lines of code for the Mail Daemon Replacement, to the Haiku source repository. If you are on the CVS update list, Nathan warns that you may want to unsubscribe until the check-in is complete. 😉

Third, Tyler Dauwalder released UDF Tools 1.0, for those looking to read UDF formated DVD and CD file systems.

And last, but not least, Rudolf Cornelissen has released 2 very important bits: Haiku AGP busmanager and an update to the Haiku nVidia TNT/GF driver. According to IsComputerOn, using the manager plus the the “fake” driver along with Thomas Kurschel’s ATI Radeon driver finally frees Radeon IGP users from the VESA world.

    Just keep in mind that not all IGP chipsets work yet. At least mine doesn’t. 🙁

    All in all it’s a great step forward, however, and I’m very happy for everyone else who’s been able to get it to work.

    At least that fact gives Thomas good clue how to resolve IGP problem in more straightforward way, and aslo tool for that task

    I’m not sure I’d consider a couple of dozen of line of a bash patch to be “a tremendous show of community support from yT”…
    But it’s nice to get /something/ back.
