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.

That's weird, then. If the error you're getting is "command line too long", it surely looks like a bug tied to a previous jam version.
Are you building under beos, linux or ... ?
Finally, no, I don't think there is a binary version (of jam) to download. You need to build the one in the tree. Unless you get it from someone else, of course ;)

Yeah, I think that was it "CommandLine Too Long". Which didn't make any sense. I assumed it was possibly because my install of BeOS R5 PE has a defective Mime[something] file or whatever (that's when I started getting the error). Didn't know if that could affect it, but decided to download/install BeOS R5 PE (Wind) from BeBits. Seems to work, ok, but I have no sound... yet, the Media Prefs app shows my soundcard (I have an SB Live!). Weird. In BeOS R5 PE (from Be, Inc.), the sound is fine.

If Schmid.com were up or Sikosis were doing builds on a regular schedule, I wouldn't even worry, but I want to be right on top of all the action... so I figure doing my own builds is the way to go about that.

BUT I CAN'T!!! >:-(

What should I do?

"If Schmid.com were up"

It's up again.

I tried JAMing the latest revision about 30 minutes ago and the error I got was:

MergeObjectFromObjects1 actions too long (max 10240)!

What does this mean? Have you seen it before? Have others seen it? I must know the answer!!!

Sadly jam isnt kept up to date as much as we'd all hope. Haiku has shown a few limitations in jam -- the devs have extended / corrected them for the version that resides in the Haiku repo.

Once you've built Haikus jam, you should have no problems
