About The Author 12 Comments 2005-11-12 5:53 pm jeanmarc Haiku definitely make good progress and it’s still running fast on emulation. Give it a try using VMware: http://www.freelists.org/archives/openbeos/10-2005/msg00043.html and the latest build from http://www.schmidp.com/index.php?option=com_files&path=/haiku/image… Nice work so far ! 2005-11-12 9:02 pm Sandwich Boy I heard a new BeOS news site was coming out soon. Does anyone have any info on this? 2005-11-13 2:08 am chekr Maybe you are reffering to this: http://haikunews.org/ 2005-11-13 7:43 am A.H. haikunews.org has been around for quite a while 2005-11-13 10:10 am chekr So what is this new BeOS related news site then…I am keen to have a look. 2005-11-13 11:12 am Mindblower2k4 maybe you’re right can’t tell much about it, but expect all kinds of news for haiku, development news,tutorials, weekly builds, weekly changelogs etc 2005-11-12 10:02 pm Ghostride Someone has reported that building Haiku fails on ubuntu breezy, so it might not build on all distros. But it should a least build on debian sarge, as that is what I used when i wrote the guide. The error message when building on breezy in case someone wants to try to figure out why it fails: http://rafb.net/paste/results/9KLkyC15.html 2005-11-13 3:13 pm GatoLoko I’ve compiled it on breezy. The problem is with gcc 4.0 (by default in breezy). If you change the system to use gcc 3.4 then it works. Sorry for my bad english. 2005-11-13 12:45 am michael.chisari This new build system should help out development a good amount. Once I can get a hold of a dual pentium 3 system, I’m gonna load Linux + Haiku and see how I can help. 2005-11-13 1:26 am JohnMG So, how has using “jam” worked out for them? Are there regrets? Would ant or SCons have been a better choice, or are they happy with jam? 2005-11-13 2:58 pm Anonymous Penguin Nice to see that two operating systems I love can cooperate. I hope the cooperation goes even further. 2005-11-13 11:41 pm Tanner I hope someone will make a LiveCD in the near future… For now, the script for the Livecd making is simply broken.
