First of all, what’s a very nice new site!! Thank you for that
My 1st question: about application
Is there a list of Haïku packages (such as http://www.openbsd.org/4.0_packages/i386.html for OpenBSD 4.0) and what is the system for install them ?
For example, on OpenBSD, we just need to enter this command: pkg_add <package_url><packages_name>
And on MacOS, we just need to drag and drop (very powerful system).
My last question: about network
As I had read, Haïku haven’t a very well understand with network protocol… But when do you think it’s will be okay (like on *BSD or Linux system) ?
- No list of applications.
The main site for BeOS software is http://www.bebits.com
Some programs on Bebits are outdated or no longer available, but this is the best place to start looking for a program. (use the search or browse the files)
for BeOS software links (to other sites).
- To install the programs:
Usually they are in zip format & have a readme file.
You’ll have to unzip & then copy them to the right folders or move the files/folders to the right directories.
Very few programs are .pkg & these will install automatically.
Not hard to install, but takes a bit of time to do it (be happy you only have to do it once though).
- Haiku Networking is the last thing to get done. It is only at 44% right now. You won’t get networking working, so best to wait till network stack hits 85%.
Haiku is still in the alpha stage.
