Haiku-OS.org does a little re-decorating

Filed under the:  department.
Posted by:Yez on Tuesday, 23 Jan, 2007 @ 11:53 AM

The fantastic web development folks over at Haiku-OS.org have done a great job polishing up their website. Apparently this is the look they were working towards all along but were forced to put up the previous look in a hurry when their original webserver crashed. Hmm… re-decorating, that sounds like a good idea…

Haiku gets an in with Google?

According to the latest news over at the Haiku-OS website, Bruno Albuquerque of OpenBFS fame has been working at Google for the past year and now has managed to get an audience with Google engineers to tout the goodness of Haiku. I am not sure where this will lead or what may come of this but if it brings in a couple of Google engineers to work on Haiku, even in their spare time because they like the project, that sounds great to us!

Better video for Haiku in VMWare

Filed under the:  department.
Posted by:Yez on Monday, 15 Jan, 2007 @ 8:12 AM

Lots of folks use VMWare to run Haiku in a sandbox type environment to see what progress has been made and such. The problem with doing this is that the video capabilities are limited because you can only Haiku in VESA mode. Koki has an article over on Haiku-OS.org that talks about how this is changing. Eric Petit is working on a video driver for Haiku that will allow it to work in VMWare and let the user change screen resolutions with rebooting among other things. Great work Eric, please keep it up!

Net…working on Haiku!

For those of you waiting to “reach out and touch someone” with Haiku, the wait is over.  Koki has posted a nice blurb here on the Haiku-OS.org website about how to get Haiku to connect through the network stack that was recently committed to the Haiku project.  Thanks go out to Axel for doing the hard work to get this done!

For those of you who have not paid attention to the rest of the community websites, WalterCon 2006 is a go in Orlando, FL. All of the details can be found here. Because of obligations on our end, none of the BeGroovy staff will be able to make it to this year’s WalterCon but we will be with you in spirit! If you do go and have some good pictures or stories to share, please let us know.

As a follow-up to the last story, the contestants have submited their icon sets and are ready for you to vote on them.  You can head over to the contest page here and it has a very nice way to see what the icons look like on the Haiku desktop in varies sizes.  You can also find a link that will let you vote for your favorite set.  I think they all look great and would like to thank everyone for their hard work in putting together these sets for the competition.

Haiku is having a contest!

Ok, not the most timely news but better late than never.  Over at the Haiku site, you will see that their top bit of news is a Haiku Icon Contest.  In a nutshell, they are looking for a nice new icon set for Haiku.  All of the details and requirements can be found over at the Haiku-OS.com website.  Happy building!

Time to put your money where your mouth is.

You have followed the Haiku project for a while but you haven’t go much spare time and you’re not sure exactly how to help out.  Haiku Bounties is here to help you and the Haiku community out.  The idea is simple, a centralized way to get Haiku developers and get them money for their hard work.  Currently there is a bounty out for a solid USB stack and a solid networking component.  These are both quality projects that would help out the Haiku community greatly.  Head on over and learn more at Haiku Bounties.

Both Haiku News and ICO have reported that Firefox now runs on Haiku after the taming of an annoying bug. Tqh gives a better explanation on the BeZilla Blog. Also, there is a pretty sweet screenshot of Firefox on Haiku looking at OSnews! Fantastic job Axel and Simon!!!

Now that we are back up, how about some news!

As Haiku gets closer to R1, Mr. Phipps talks about the challenges the project faces as it works to build an OS in Newsletter #61. Mr. Phipps covers some interesting points and explains why the road is long and hard but well worth taking. Enjoy!

Michael Speaks On WalterCon

Filed under the:  department.
Posted by:Deej on Monday, 15 Aug, 2005 @ 7:19 AM

Our new “Fearless Leader” Michael Phipps (and you have to be pretty ‘fearless’ to take on what was considered impossible by a great many a few years ago to recreate BeOS from scratch - something that is coming along very nicely now) was asked by a few of us to comment on his thoughts of WalterCon 2005, and he has responded to us. Since Chris beat me to the punch in posting Michael’s response, I’m just going to link you there (vice posting it again), in case you hadn’t noticed it over on HaikuNews yet.

WalterCon 2005 - Vegas

Filed under the:  department.
Posted by:Deej on Sunday, 24 Apr, 2005 @ 8:01 PM

So, as other sites have reported, and as many of us had already suspected from previous conversations about it - the next WalterCon will be in Las Vegas, sometime around the first weekend of August (exacts still TBD). I, currently, plan on going again. Anyone else? Send an email to waltercon at haiku dash os dot org and let them know (you all know the domain, and I’ll continue the current trend of not putting the address in exactly so that robots don’t pick it up). You can also comment here if you like. ;)

Real hardware accelerated graphics under Haiku

HaikuSubmitted News

Thanks to tb100 for the heads up on this.

Over at the Haiku forums, Michael Lotz (mmlr) made a post about his new personal Haiku weblog.

In his blog he explains his experiments with Haiku which show that real hardware accelerated graphics work with the Haiku kernel and Be’s slimdemo sample code. These are definitely interesting results and good info for Haiku developers.

Also, if you go to his comments section you’ll find a post from Ingo with some interesting info in the following quote:

“PS: BTW, we thought about getting the app_server to run under Haiku in the not so distant future (ideally before BeGeistert), so this is just an excellent time you choose to have a closer look at it.”

Neils’ Fisrt USB Stack Milestone is getting close.

Good Bye … Blue Eyes

BlueEyed OSHaiku

…Who could hang a name on you?… Oh, wait, that’s Ruby Tuesday. :P

As many of you have probably already heard, it appears Blue Eyed OS is out of the OSBOS game. While it is sad to see a post-Be effort to die - the hidden silver lining, as told by Michael Olivera on the Haiku mailing list:

The remaining BlueEyedOS developers and me wants join in Haiku project.

So, while sad, this could give a few extra coders to strengthen (maybe speed up) Haiku development.

UPDATE 02/02/2005:

Seems that was a premature death call. From Guillaume himself:

It seems that Michael (Oliveira), our webmaster, concluded a ‘bit’ too quickly because the website www.BlueEyedOS.com is down for some days (due to a technical issue), that the BlueEyedOS is dead.
It is not.

He also mentions that Zeta has been a high priority for him lately, explaining his recent lack of activity.

What I do hope now that this non-death has gone public via the Haiku mailing list, is that communications between team members does increase, and we still see some of those developers helping out more in Haiku (and possibly vice versa) in the form of code/knowledge sharing and the like.

Haiku website back online.

After being down for some time due to server problems, the Haiku OS webpage is back up and functioning. Recently the forums have also returned and are working correctly.

Also, check out the Haiku activity stats to see the development and changes taking place in the Haiku CVS. You’ll see all the commits and changes that are being made to the Haiku CVS by all the developers working on the project. It can give you an idea of what’s going on and provide another source of info for those interested in following Haiku’s progress.

Haiku-OS / beunited Websites Update

Filed under the:  department.
Posted by:Deej on Wednesday, 05 Jan, 2005 @ 5:40 AM

Just wanted to drop a note about the extended outages of both the Haiku-OS and beunited websites…

The dedicated server has suffered a file system mounting problem, one that will require a system rebuild. Since the server was hosted at a remote location, it is being shipped back to beunited for a rebuild. However, due to these and past issues, both Haiku-OS and beunited have both decided to move to virtual hosting solutions. The domains are in transfer to their new respective hosts, and backups of the sites’ data are being recovered from the old dedicated server. Stay tuned, both sites should return very shortly.

Haiku Booting

Filed under the:  department.
Posted by:Deej on Wednesday, 27 Oct, 2004 @ 8:31 PM

This just in from the Haiku website - Axel has booted Haiku on real hardware into a console. He also had this to say:

Despite some minor issues (you still don’t see what you type), we can now have a fully functional bash running on our kernel. A lot of other shell commands, even those using our own libbe.so are working, as well.

Still some work to be done, for sure. But still - Way, way… Way cool!

New Media Kit News

Posted by:Deej on Monday, 30 Aug, 2004 @ 8:45 PM

And back to our regularly scheduled (once a month or so) news posts…

Caught over at IsComputerOn that Marcus has gotten the Haiku Media Kit working with Zeta RC3, and that Marco (not Marcus) is aware of issues with the Media Kit and SoundPlay, and will have SoundPlay working with the new media kit as things stabilize. Good news on that front all around.
