I noticed yesterday that the BeOS Laptop Page has a different look and a new forum as well, head on over to the site to take a look. ConneX also has plans to add some new features to the site. One of them is to add a list of laptops that are known to not work at all with BeOS/Zeta so that users are aware of them. Another feature that ConneX might add is the ability to rate the laptops that are already listed on the Laptops page. Through this, a top 10 list could be made to allow users to see which laptops work best with BeOS/Zeta based on BeOS user experience.
Thanks goes to all those that have already submitted a laptop they tested or use with BeOS/Zeta. If you haven’t added your laptop, go here to add it to the list and make sure you put as much info as possible regarding your laptop, especially if you had to do something special to get BeOS/Zeta to work on your hardware so that others can benefit from your experience. There is also a section to add PCMCIA devices that work with your BeOS/Zeta laptop as well.
Pavel announced a few days ago that he released and updated version of the RC2 demo for BeOS/Zeta users. The previous build was missing a configuration file that prevented the program from starting if you didn’t install it as an upgrade for RC1. The fixed version also installs the correct shortcuts in the right places. I removed the download link that could be used for wget from the previous update I made. If you downloaded build 423 and have a problem running Pixel32, go to the Pixel32 download page and download the updated 424 build from November 27th.
Besol conducted an interview with Bruno G. Albuquerque regarding his work with Zeta and yellowTAB. The interview is in Spanish, so if you want a translated version you can always try using Bablefish or go here for the english translation by Google. The english translation isn’t the greatest, but it gives you an idea of what’s being said.
Last week, yellowTAB officially announced that they will be releasing a service pack for Zeta Neo sometime before the end of this month. I guess they should hurry since tomorrow is the last day of the month. At the moment, there isn’t much detail as to what the sevice pack fixes, they only mention that the service pack will fix numerous things and add better support for PPP dial-up and DSL internet connections. The service pack will be made available through download and more details about its contents will be made once the service pack is finished.
