BeOS & Derivatives The Haiku alpha release has always been a bit elusive. The project has been near the alpha release for a while now, but a number of difficult data-destructive bugs kept it at bay. After an informal coding sprint, the alpha is now just a decision away.

For the memory, I will try some smaller amounts or less DIMMs to see if that is having some bad effects, 1/2, 1, 2, 4GB etc.

I can also try out some older video cards. Pity I can't use the old BeOS ATI AGP twinhead but that was for dual 1600x1200 CRTs. I am glad you have 1920x1200 working so I will shoot for that too. I also have a 2nd 2048x1152 LCD so that will give any twinhead driver another headache.

On USB I should have said it wouldn't mount hard drives with a USB adapter so far, although the mouse, KB and flash stick worked.

For networking I also tried reusing my trusty old BeOS DEC card but still not connecting.

On file copying, it didn't help that the 2 drives were uncooled and got pretty darn hot. After the reboot the drives were fan cooled and the copying went somewhat better but still freezes or KDLs later. Even BeOS used to have issues with copying x GB drives but I also had 1GB in that box too.

I will be filing tickets as soon as I have tried out a lot more corners with various hardware changes.

Can't wait for the LiveCD ISO now!!!

I see bebits, haikuware are back up, hurrah
