First off I want to congratulate everyone who has worked on Haiku to this point. I have been playing around with Alpha 1 for about a week now and enjoying it.
Now onto my problem…
OK, so when I boot I get a kernel panic then “fatal exception “NMI Interrupt” occurred! Error code: 0x0”. I can bypass this easily enough by just typing “exit” at the prompt and everything boots as normal. The thing is I would like to get this to not occur at all. I’m wanting to set this up my BeOS machine as a headless box that I can VNC into (yes, VNC works…). If I should ever need to reboot the box this of course becomes an issue.
What I’m looking for is any kind of ideas on what fail-safe options might be useful in getting around this, if there is a way I can pass arguments to the kernel when it boots, etc. Any way of getting around it would be helpful.
Oh, I don’t know if this matters but I can tell you that this is being caused by the network card. The issue started only after I installed the card. I have not seen if it was resolved after I removed the card but I think it’s a safe bet that it would be. Of course I kind of need the NIC so I can’t exactly do without it.
