BeOS & Derivatives Back when it was becoming clear that the time of the BeOS had come and gone, enthusiasts immediately set up the OpenBeOS project, an attempt to recreate the Be operating system from scratch, using a MIT-like license. The project faced difficult odds, and numerous times progress seemed quite slow. Still, persistence pays off, and the first alpha release is drawing ever closer. We decided to take a look at where Haiku currently stands.

"Haiku keeps getting better and better, God willing it'll be running full time on my Aspire One once it hits Alpha.


No need to wait; in spite of its pre-alpha status, Haiku runs quite well on my Aspire One, with native support for video, audio and ethernet.

You can try it booting from a USB to see if your specific model will boot/work.

It boots but no wifi support and no sound either.

It flies though, even running off the usb flash drive. ;)

Wifi is a ways off, but either the HDA driver or the OpenSound media node should support your audio chip

Try the HDA driver first - you must enable it manually for build in your haiku images:

OpenSound is an optional package that will conflict with any native drivers that are already installed, so if HDA doesn't work, that would be the last resort.

I know sound works in Haiku on the AA1 - as I've seen it running on koki's machine ;)
