Hello and greetings from Ukraine. I am I guy from KolibriOS Team and I was always fancy about Haiku. Seeing a lot of various OSes (ALL) I feel the Haiku GUI the best.
You didn’t ask but I made a testing of several PCI cards in Haiku x64.
Would be nice to add them into the list of Haiku Hardware Database but I could not find contacts of a creator. Maybe you could help.
Testing stand: Esprimo P2500, Celeron D 346 3.06, 2G RAM, HDD 40G, 1280x1024 usual resolution.
Matrox Millenium (Compaq, MGA 2064W-R2) - OS loads, after the rocket I see a debug console.
Nvidia VANTA/16M - hang and reboot before loading screen
Asus V3800/16M (TNT2) - hang and reboot before loading screen
PixelView PV-N18BP/128M (MX4000) - loads after the rocket it hangs
ATI Rage II+DVD/4M - works well! It is possible to set any resolution up to 1920x1080 and 1920x1200. Teapot gives 75-80 fps at 1280x1024x16.
ATI Rage Pro/6M - works well! It is possible to set any resolution. Teapot gives 78-82 fps at 1280x1024x16 and 56 fps at 1280x1024x32.
S3 Virge/GX - just a black screen, no image
S3 Trio64XXXX and S3 Vision 968 - black screen with 16 colorus because of VESA 1.2 I suppose
SIS 661FX (my native card, build-in, AGP8, 64M via RAM) - works well, any resolution. Teapot 80-88 fps at 1280x1024x32.
