BeOS & Derivatives People love screenshots. It's probably because humans are a very visually orientated species. When it comes to software, people claim to be able to judge entire products, just by looking at a few screenshots. Especially for those people: 85 screenshots of Haiku running all sorts of applications. For the people who've been living under a rock the past 5 years: Haiku is an attempt to recreate BeOS as an open source product. And for the people who don't know BeOS-- click here.

Haiku is gettin' awesome!

Right now, I can't do builds. Not sure exactly why, but the latest revision I downloaded (r16807) won't build. I get some weird "[something] too long" error. I have 386Mb of RAM. That was enough a couple days ago. Has something changed?

The builds I download, I restart the Media Server and I still have nothing for audio. I have an SB Live! Isn't that supported?

I'd appreciate someone giving me an exact list of what CPU's, motherboard chipsets, audio/video chipsets, etc. are supported by Haiku, specifically.

I'd like to buy a different/newer chipset motherboard, that will use my 1GHz Athlon, but also accept the newer Athlon XP CPU's as well. But I won't get it if I can't use it with BeOS/Haiku.

I'm currently using an MS-6330 v2.1 (Gateway OEM).

Compile the jam contained in the haiku repository and use that one. Your jam version isn't able to compile the tree.

The version of jam I've been using was perfectly fine no less than a couple days ago (jamming R1670x or so). You mean it's suddenly obsolete, just like that? If so, is there a binary version of the latest version (that works) that I can download? What's the version number?
