Frizbe launches with BeOS Hardware List

Filed under the:  department.

Hardware

Just a quick note to let everyone know that Frizbe has officially launched it’s Hardware Compatibility Database and BeOS Hardware store. A Hardware Compatibility List (HCL) that covers all the different variations has been needed for a while, since The Be Site seemingly vanished. Hopefully Frizbe will help fill that void. So get over there and help build an important resource by entering your hardware specs.

    if you’re having problems, logout then log back in again to reset your cookie. You should be good to go.

    Re: mmmm…

    I can’t login either. And since I’m not logged in, I can’t log out. When I try to login I see a screen flash welcome back, but when I get back to any page on the site it says I am not logged in. Currently in Windows, using Opera 5.11 and IE 5.5.

    Re: mmmm…

    Yes, it was the same, since i wasn’t logged in i couldn’t log out. What you want to do is close all IE/Opera windows open then go to the site again.
    Worked for me, already added some items :)

    Re: mmmm…

    ok…. well, I’m installing windows right now so I can test this. sorry folks. It looks like there are some cookie issues in the windows world.

    I Never bothered to test windows, and that is my bad, my appologies, If you are on a mac or in BeOS using ‘any’ browser you should be just fine. those all seem to be just fine. I’m at work right now and have a win 2k box next to my mac so I’ll test that, but those of you having problems, if you could try using netscape or try posting from netpositive or opera within beOS and post back whether yit worked or not, that would be great.

    I’m in win at this moment. Never logged in before, just registered, and did not have to, added hardware with no issues. :(

    Login problems solved

    the problem has been solved. Turns out IE and opera didn’t like the name I was using for my cookie. So the cookie has a new name and all browsers now work.

    If you are having problems logging in…

    1.) clear your cache
    2.) re-login

    because I changed the cookies name a lot of people will need to clear their cache and re-login as the cokkie now has a different name but pages in your browser’s cache are looking for the old cookie which may no longer be there. A frustrating issue, but a necessary fix. I appologize for any frustrations my cookie setting has caused anyone. with any luck, the issue will blow over throughout the day, as people reload and clear their caches. thanks for being patient.

    huh, I could have sworn last time I checked the list had 438 items in it.

    when did it drop to 20?

    What’s sad, is that people like this person don’t see the potential of having a working compatibility list again. I mean, for BeOS users, it’s almost as nice as it is for the Linux world to have the LDP (Linux Documentation Project) Fortunately for us, Be is alot easier to use ; )

    I’m actually curious…. does QNX have a hardware compatibility list? I’m ignorant and I don’t know how QNX works, but do drivers for redhat also work for QNX?

    Bullshit. Since, in the *nix world, developers often take the lazy way out, and “having choice” usually becomes “completely usless defaults that you must spend 20 minutes editing before you come within spitting distance of anything that could reasonably be called ‘usable’.”

    I’d rather have useful, thought-out defaults, than have an OS which I spend more time configuring than using.

    Less power? It seems to me that when I’m mixing 13 tracks of audio in 3dMix on BeOS - in real time - compared to the problem of skipping MP3’s in Linux (only one played at a time, of course), I have all the power I need. Certainly more power than in Linux or QNX.

    I guess my idea of power must be different from yours.

    odd, ive NEVER had such a problem in linux, what soundlib/player and distro were YOU using??

    Re: big list eh

    Using Mandrake 8.0 it skipped occasionally but X crashed several times a day. I moved on to RedHat 7.1, which was stable as all get-up, but still skipped.

    And yes, I’ve seen (and used) the hack to give XMS priority. But that’s why I use BeOS - so I don’t need to do the hacking.

    HOPE that answers YOUR question, Mr. Anonymous (I saw you LIKED to use CAPITALS so I HOPE this is MORE comfortable for YOU).

    Right, so since you like Linux, you are a technical moron, and that’s a big deal.

    I have the same problem when booting to Linux. It’s the same hardware on which I run WinNT and BeOS 5.0. Linux really sucks, with regards to responsive GUI and media playback.

    Re: big list eh

    And people wonder where the Linux community has gotten the bad rap?

    As the president of the “Untechnical Morons” club, I *am* using Linux as a file, print, dial-in, email, web and database server. Shockingly, with my miniscule technical understanding I set it all up myself. And you know what? I *do* like Linux for certain services (but it was nice of you to make assumptions without knowing a thing about me).

    But there are many in the Linux community that continue to push the OS as a desktop replacement. Well, it won’t be a replacement of anything on MY desktop. I patched the kernal to get higher priority for XMS, but why bother? And I still can’t mix 13 tracks of audio realtime in Linux like I can in BeOS. Or did I miss a program out there that will do it for me? Maybe you could enlighten me.

    Even though the position of President at the Untechnical Morons club has been taken, I hear there’s room in the Pompous Jackass club. I’m sure you’d qualify.

    And that ends my grumpy post of the evening. Cheers.

    QNX won’t boot on my system (Promise Ultra/66 UDMA controller), let alone give me hardware OpenGL (ATI Radeon). Or speed, since QNX doesn’t seem to support UDMA modes at all…

    Re: big list eh

    but then again what’s the right word for trolls? “troll suck”? nah, sounds
    too soft.. “trolls blow” is repetitive.. maybe “trolls go home”?

    oh and since during the last few weeks some *nix trolls have been picky
    on languages (got to find something to argue over when you’re done
    re-hasing “linux rules you 4ll sill1 BeOS b4sat4rds” for the hundredth time, eh)
    english is not my n.t. so feel free to use that as a flame target.

    PS: reading the beginning of this thread, it seems trolls can’t count either.. but we
    already knew that they freeze into stone at dawn and can’t read either
    so no surprise really.
