BeOS & Derivatives The Haiku network stack currently under heavy development is reportedly working with the Vision IRC client. Haiku developer Axel Dörfler reports that the network stack can now successfully run the Vision IRC client (screenshot on the Haiku website). At this stage, the network still needs to be configured manually, but this can be easily done by editing a couple of files as explained here. Haiku can use BeOS network drivers, so if your NIC is not supported, you can try finding a driver on

Agreed - they're a while away from the R1 release right now.

However Haiku is looking to be close to having an alpha release. Definitely good news.

Now if only there were images I could download to run in Parallels on my Mac...

Take a look here for how to get Haiku running in Parallels:

I haven't tried the new netstack in Parallels but hopefully it'll work. It's nice to see Axel is still locked in the basement. ;)

lol yes, not to belittle the efforts of the other developers in any way, but the idea of having a couple of more Axel Dörfler's has made me reevaluate my stance on human cloning ;)

Unfortunately, even following those directions, attempting to boot the virtual machine causes Parallels to reboot my machine. No error logs, no crash logs, etc. No way to know what it did, but EVERY time, same result.

I see the BIOS memory/etc screen, get a black screen, then the computer reboots. Tried the latest stable version of Parallels and also the beta. Same result. Macbook Black w/ 2 gigs of RAM. Core Duo model. Parallels doesn't respond to my emails (really pissed at them about this...)

As to the Haiku guys, GREAT work. I've been waiting for this forever. When Haiku hits R1, I'm going to buy a laptop just for it. Here's to hoping that somebody will step up to the plate and create a replacement for Cubase/Logic that runs on Haiku, because I would forever ditch Apples at that point. I like Apples, but I don't like them *that* much, even having worked for Apple. I'd rather have more "choice" when I shop. ;)
