Computers compatible with Haiku (current version)

Thanks to the anonymous contributor for testing your Dell Dimension machine with Haiku! (Please note that this customized machine has been filed under desktops and workstations since the model is from an OEM (Dell)).

To view the current hardware list, please see:

To add new hardware:

Method 1: The easiest way is to use the Add Hardware form (beta2.7.22) powered by Google Forms.
Method 2 : If you don’t like Google, you can alternatively add your hardware by posting to or replying to this thread (but if you do it this way, please refer to and use the same format the other hardware listings do with the template). The listing will then be posted on the Hardware List as with Method 1.
Method 3 : Or… you can also simply reply to this thread with a useful description of your hardware (for example: “Hi, I have a 2020 Leafbook with a 2.6 GHz Intel i7 9750H processor, Intel HD graphics, and 8 GB of 2666MHz DDR4 RAM with Haiku Nightly hrev54042 on it and I started from a USB drive. Works fairly well. Can connect to the Internet including over WiFi. Starts and runs normally, though I get no sound.”)

  • For any fixes or questions, please post them here, and I’ll update the hardware list when I can.

Thank you everyone!

wait… was there ever a Socket 478 machine with EFI boot support? This looks off specially because the additional notes claiming it has Windows 98 installed.

From what I could gather from the report, driver installers were mentioned for Windows 98 - 7 for the ST1000BT32 ethernet card, not that the PC itself ran 98. Also thought I’d mention jic of confusion the additional notes are all one initially… but are broken up into parts to make it easier to parse for YAML and JSON formats (so parts 1, 2, and 3 here are one part just split up). If this has a 32-bit P4, I doubt this old machine has EFI, man… but I’m far from a PC expert — if I or the contributor got something messed up please let everyone know so it can be fixed :slight_smile:

Thank you to the anonymous contributor, and also to Kamino, Alberto, and Marabu for your contributions! These should now be on GitHub and the hardware list page (and here as well):

Thank you April J, Druaga1, ralf for testing your hardware with Haiku! These should now be visible below, at the Haiku Computer List and the haiku-computer-list on GitHub .

Sorry everyone it’s taken a long time to get this updated; I’ve been on a personal search plus other stuff so I’m not as active on this as I should be. Thanks for your patience with me Haikuers!

Also thanks to all the contributors this cycle for testing your hardware with :fallen_leaf: Haiku! :smiley: These should now be visible below, at the Haiku Computer List and the haiku-computer-list on GitHub .

More to the point, thank YOU.

It would be great to have an “automatic” software tool to submit these data to a common online database, IMHO.

Some - maybe - useful (inspiring) resources:
https://alternativeto.net/software/aida64/?license=opensource
https://alternativeto.net/software/hwinfo32/?license=opensource

note: it would be also useful to collect bios/firmware version(s) of tested hardware

Thanks – for real; truly hope it helps the Haiku dev team and community! :smiley:

^ totally agree with this – there needs to be a universal hardware tool built into Haiku someday, like in Devices or the About box or something; maybe it could even go right to the dev team that way too.

No.

I keep repeating this.

Piling up automatically collected data is useless to the dev team. What we need is people motivated enough to follow up on their reports, test new nightly builds and see if their issues are fixed. This is true in general already, but especially so for hardware related problems, where we often have no other way to test than asking the user to run a test build.

So, if you have problems with your hardware, and you want them fixed, as a user you need to put some effort in too. Not just click a button and forget about it.

True. But it may be nice for the opposite situation: reporting the hardware that does work under Haiku. That way people can easier find the components that do work when they are in the market for a new rig.

Yes, but for this the website linked in this topic is working fine. It’s one thing less the devs have to care about :slight_smile:

Devs don’t have to get involved. If the OT’s Google doc form is the officially sanctioned way of tracking hardware, we should add a “Report your hardware” Web+ bookmark to the image and see where to link to it from the website.

I agree that we need some sort of way to contribute to this list (and as @humdinger said we can add a desktop link to the form at https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSceXPfiAXE4tSEDRaJo0CkTrFi3Sva6g3ZtoZUBC6oogA7PYw/viewform?usp=sf_link)

Additionally, maybe we could consider giving this a more permanent home, somewhere on the main site (ideally it would be managed by @apgreimann so the devs would not need to manage yet another thing).

We were actually talking about a hardware compatibility list for Haiku on the Haiku Marketing thread (I’d forgotten about this list) so reviewers and new users can check what hardware works best. I will link this thread in the reviewer’s information sheet for easy reference and I’ll also add it in any future informational materials I produce.

Wouldn’t maintaining links in webpositive and the desktop equate to the same thing? Seems to me that the devs then would have to vet each ressource, and especially define one as official over any other one. What’s wrong with keeping it accesible in the forum like it is now?

A web form like my HaikuSystemAnslysisTool in the past…

…would be a good way.

Der ‘Ansatz’ ist schon sehr gut - empfehlenswert ‘weiter’ zu denken…
aber ich habe (vor einiger Zeit) trotzdem ‘aufgegeben’…

GERMAN language would be helpful to me!
Generally mother tongue of the author + english (if it is not the mother tongue)!

BeSly System Analysis Tool (among others):
I click on the start symbols (individually) and they get a red border (difficult to see depending on the screen display) = selected? Unfortunately, I can’t deselect = the red border remains and is therefore selected?
If so, that (and other things) can easily lead to incorrect ‘results’.

Well hey I don’t have the only hardware page; another one I know of is BeSly with its system analysis tool :slightly_smiling_face: And idk if my page is “officially sanctioned” or not, I’ve just been listing whatever comes into the form now and then as a unofficial community thingamabob. What the heck does OT mean?

Yeah I get what you’re saying — might not be a bad idea to have more than just form output, usually when a new release is out I reorganize stuff, so maybe when Beta 3 is out I could spend a free day looking at the hardware ratings then put something like maybe some stats :bar_chart: on what works the best (like what brand, etc.)
