BeOS & Derivatives I had been following the mailing list for the Haiku project the past week with growing interest. The topic of discussion? Why, the alpha release, of course! What needs to be done, who needs to prepare what, and most importantly, what schedule are they going to settle on? Well, after numerous insightful back-and-forths, the community has settled on a schedule.

the PCNetII driver locks up, and I know why (this is the patch I was talking about.) Generally, that driver is extremly badly written and serves as another example.


Just to set this straight: The PCNetII driver that is present in Haiku is an unmodified copy of the FreeBSD driver (originally it is a NetBSD one though). It is one of the network drivers that make use of the FreeBSD network compatibility layer to use unmodified FreeBSD sources. The copy in our repository is two years old now and should most probably be updated. In any case, this driver does obviously not reflect the quality of the Haiku code base.
