BeOS & Derivatives Haiku, the open-source BeOS replacement project, turns five years old today. Founded in August 2001 as OpenBeOS with the intention of replacing BeOS due to the lack of action by the then-ailing Be, Haiku has seen five years of change in the BeOS market but continues to progress.

Why can't I build Haiku on my system? The latest build over at Haiku. is from Aug. 5th. It was working fine and then suddenly (*CRUNCH*) I get a bunch of "skipped... lack of [whatever].so" items and it never builds the haiku.image file in the end. I tried deleting the whole /trunk directory (gah! That takes FOR-EVER!) and downloading/building everything fresh... same problem.

Whazzup?

Luposian:

Best head to #haiku - several of us have discussed recent problems building Haiku - and I myself ran into some similar problems last night. OSNews comments are most certainly not the right place for that type of conversation ;)

Since we've merged the networking branch, you need to have the latest GCC release (on BeBits or from our repository) to compile Haiku.
While you're at it, you should also update jam, as that has also seen some changes.
