BeOS & Derivatives Today the latest SVN checkout of Haiku sources gave us very good news: app_server can now run Tracker (screenshot 1 2 3), although it crashes so often that it is actually unusable. You can check this yourself by downloading a Haiku image from Philipp Schmid's blog and running it in Virtual PC (or VMWare). This news is a sign that Haiku is near alpha release.

You can run haiku NOW

You actually can!

I will make a tutorial soon.
You just have to set up a BFS partition on your hard drive, then boot BeOS R5, mount the image from philipp schmid blog, copy the contents in the BFS partition...

Configure GRUP et-voilą, you have haiku running as alternative OS in your multiboot configuration ;)

That's kind of what I did with PE5. I installed 4.5 (I bought it), booted into it, mounted my PE5 partition and copied over my PE5 to my PE4.5 partition.

It worked quite well. This should be similar. Hurry up on the tutorial. ;)
