BeOS & Derivatives After eight years of hard work, the day has finally arrived. Today, September 14, the Haiku project has released its very first alpha release. With the goal of recreating one of the most beloved operating systems in history, the BeOS, they took on no small task, but it seems as if everything is finally starting to come together. Let's talk about the history of the BeOS, where Haiku comes from, and what the Alpha is like.

To get the network enabled in VMWare edit the .vmx file to have the following:

ethernet0.present = "TRUE"
ethernet0.connectionType = "nat"
ethernet0.wakeOnPcktRcv = "FALSE"
ethernet0.linkStatePropagation.enable = "TRUE"
ethernet0.startConnected = "true"
ethernet0.virtualDev = "e1000"

Start the VM open the Network Preference pane and set it to DHCP and close the pane. Reboot Haiku.

To get sound enabled in VMWare edit the .vmx file to have the following:

sound.present = "TRUE"
sound.startConnected="true"
sound.virtualDev = "es1371"
sound.fileName = "-1"
sound.autodetect = "TRUE"

Then download and extract the following OSS zip to /boot/
