First post here, but I had a couple of snags while I was installing it. Hopefully this post might help someone else trying to get this laptop working with Haiku.
First, while booting through a USB, the boot loader would stop on the rocket ship and just freeze. I had to do some digging, but I found that you could go into safe-mode along with other options while holding the to shift key before it begins to load. I had to use the “Use fail-safe graphics driver” in order to be a
ble install the OS. After installing I reboot with no boot loader options ticked. Unfortunately, the rocket didn’t take off again. I restarted the latop, and enabled the fail-safe graghics again. This time I had to make it permanent. To do that I opened the terminal and went to
to edit the config file where i removed the # before the option.
So here I am with an installed Haiku laptop, but with no Wireless Networking. A wired connection works, but I’ve already installed the firmwares from the daily tasks, but it’s not picking up the card. I really want to contnue using this little netbook to run Haiku. Does anyone have a suggestion for a good compatible and cheap NIC that I can swap into here?
I’m looking to help this community and I’m eager to see how this OS turns out. I think it has great potential. Thank you!
