AFAIK drivers for ATI hardware are developed in a similar way (ATI gives specs under an NDA, the resulting driver is open source). Takashi, is that right? > I told Frank about the work you did on Noah support, and he was _very_ > impressed. Well, there isn't much reason to be impressed, as the Noah conforms to the USB audio specification, and the driver already implemented it. (The only reason I had to make a change to the driver was that the Noah and the driver, uh, didn't entirely agree on how to interpret a minor detail of the spec.) Tell him that NetBSD and OpenBSD have USB MIDI drivers, too. :-) Unlike the USB audio/MIDI parts, writing support for the vendor- specific parts of the Noah and for the SFP PCI cards won't be a matter of ten minutes, of course. > It should work as follows: > 1.

Well, I would be interested in this.
