I seem to be having mixed success with Haiku over the last 2-3 years…!
r1beta2, I had audio but no video.
r1beta 3 didn’t want to know. At all. Didn’t matter how I tried to boot it, it kept dropping me out to a console with all kinds of errors.
r1beta4, well…we seem to be making SOME progress. I finally have video…but now audio has gone AWOL. Bear in mind, all three of these attempts have been made on exactly the same hardware; an HP Pavilion desktop rig…3.7 GHz 9th-gen Pentium ‘Gold’ G5400, with 32GB RAM, 5TB + of storage, and an Nvidia GT710 discrete GPU.
Haiku doesn’t recognise the onboard Intel HDA sound chip, nor does it recognise my Logitech USB headphones, either. Am I missing something here? Does Haiku not have a way to detect and/or select the “default” sound card? I’ve trawled through the settings every which way I can, but can’t unearth anything that might configure audio at all.
And what’s with the UVC driver?
As for “positives”, well; WebPositive still won’t display YouTube videos, but it seems Otter will quite happily. I will say, the default media player works a treat, and ‘Aspect’ settings actually do something, unlike MPlayer, VLC or most of the other available media players. And that’s not just in Haiku; these same settings don’t seem to do anything in Puppy, either!
Now if only I could sort out audio, Haiku is coming very close to finally being something I could see myself using on a regular daily basis…
Any ideas, guys?
