BeOS & Derivatives Today marks an entire week of using Haiku as my primary operating system. This is my first PC to get the most out of any BeOS related operating system to date. My old 200MHz Toshiba ran R5 PE just fine but without any networking. My eMachine ran Zeta just fine, but once again, there were networking issues (and Zeta was pronounced dead around this time). In the age of the Internet, this pretty much forced me away from BeOS and its decendants until now.

I have a laptop I've been saving to run Haiku on, but it doesn't have built in ethernet or USB2. Is there support for the PCMCIA bus being worked on?


Sadly, not at the moment ;)

I have several old laptops with PCMCIA card slots also, but the general opinion is that PCMCIA is not all that important at the moment.

On the other hand, I have two different USB wired ethernet adapters that work (one is Pegasus based and has a driver included with Haiku, the other as ASIX based, which requires compiling the usb_asix driver manually from the Haiku repo as it was still buggy when Alpha 1 was done, although a major bug was just fixed in it!) They should work in USB 1.1 ports also, albeit slower ;)
