    8.04 Driver V2.2

    Linux GPM

    Another company offers OS X drivers but they are more of a commercial company so they charge $100 for it. Is there any way to make the drivers work on OS X? Porting in darwin or terminal? The drivers are for a touch panel in a PC tablet.

    Any ideas? Please help!!

    Sure if you have the source code and can program in C++ then it should be possible to port it to OS X using the IO Kit framework.

    Would I need the source from the company that sells it for money (for OSX) or from the original company which gives it for free for Windows and Linux?

    I can program in C++(its been a while, but would refresh myself). I have Xcode and developer tools on my system, but what is IO Kit framework? Any links or Tuts?

    Thanks for the help.
