RE: BeOS Boot Time Illusion
by rain on Mon 12th Jul 2004 14:47 UTC

I've never experienced that. I've always been able to use everything instantly in BeOS after the Tracker has started.
But it's possible that it was some trouble in the DHCP client/server communication. Either way, I prefer if such issues doesn't slow down the boot process.

Point is, that it's still not an illusion. BeOS wasn't designed like that. It's very much a "WYSIWYG"-OS in that sense. It was obviously an issue with your setup.
