    What's the point?
    Would be a better thing if there was an opensource VBIOS for NVIDIA's cards instead

        I hadnt a nvidia card (ok, an old 8600gts somewhere and GT430 now) and GPU passthrough didnt worked on nvidia.
        Maybe a nouveau developer can easier create a VBIOS.
        VBIOS isnt a fullfeatured video driver. Its an API for legacy BIOS/OS.
        It musts only init a gpu(without command processor, shaders, etc. ) and memory.
        Then it musts be able to set different video modes.
        Bochs VGA BIOS code can be used to serve legacy int 10h API.

            Can you post an update? On which cards it runs? What's the status? Do you use a public repository tree to work on it?

              There isnt much progress atm. Im debugging windows code in VM.
              Wiki Page created https://sourceforge.net/p/openradeonbios/wiki/Home/
              Do you mean write access to other developer?
