I just tried Haiku Beta 3 on my 32gb USB stick (flashed in balenaEtcher) and I have a few concerns.
On start Haiku set my resolution to 1024x768 while my monitor is 1280x1024. Not big of an issue actually, I just changed it in the Monitor settings and got my Haiku in full resolution. It also said something about VESA, so I guess we can count my NVIDIA GeForce 210 videocard as VESA-compatible for Haiku?
When I first tried opening the Teapot demo it worked fine (I even changed some parameters) until I closed it. When I closed it I got this glitch (sorry for screenshot quality):
It’s the teapot from that demo, but left as a glitch on my desktop. When I moved my cursor on it or touched it with the blue selection thingy it just disappears.
The first few minutes of trying Haiku weren’t really different: glitches and long waiting for software to load (I guess it’s just my USB stick being slow, not the Haiku itself).
Then I tried the Sandbox thing?.. Not sure how it actually should translate into English, in Russian locale it was named “Песочница”. Worked somewhat OK but also had graphical glitches when drawing. Video
After some time it started working like a charm, just teared a bit (which isn’t rare for UNIX-like systems working on NVIDIA).
The question is: is any of these issues actually caused by my NVIDIA videocard? Or is it just a Haiku thing and not related to my GPU brand?
Also, is there a fix or fixes for these? I really like how Haiku looks and feels if not counting these weird glitches and I may install it on my pc in the future.
My PC specs:
- CPU: AMD Athlon II X4 640 (4) @ 3.00
- GPU: NVIDIA GeForce 210
- RAM: 4gb DDR2
- Monitor: Philips 1280x1024~60Hz
may add more info if needed
Thanks in advance for any help!
