Description

Congratulations on Alpha 2, another important step towards a stable and complete R1. This ticket is to document my ideas and let you guys know I do plan to update the Devices application. I'm currently working on my final thesis, slightly delayed, I will be finished June 9th. Add a holiday to get over my mental breakdown (just kidding, more like a good hangover ;)), and I'll get back to work on this.

Have a look at the list below, and if you see ideas, feel free to add them

Ideas/TODO's short term:

  • Fix up the way the categories are copied from the original pci ids list. (Suggested on the haiku-development mailing list a while ago, )
  • Integrate localization patch, if it hasn't already been done (#5912)
  • Fit in ACPI nicely, right now it creates a lot of unknown devices ;) (new since enabling ACPI)
  • Properly support the used driver for a device (means modifying the kernel, maybe add a syscall or extend an existing one) See http://www.freelists.org/post/haiku-development/device-manager-driver-in-use-to-userspace
  • Try to make the device names a bit shorter somehow.

Long term:
