I was going through some CDs I had in my office and ran across a copy of Gobe Productive 1.1.1 which was released for BeOS R4 (both PowerPC and Intel versions). I was able to get the installer to work but when I try to launch the app itself it complains about a missing symbol
_get_screen_bitmap_FP7BBitmapG5Rectb. Since it was targeting R4 and Haiku was targeting binary compatibility with R5 I guess that’s not totally unexpected.
I wanted to archive the disk and prove that the archive image works. The complication I have is that it is not a standard CD format but instead a BeFS disk on CD. I could mount the physical media in a VM. I was able to use
dd to make a copy of the disk to an image file. I don’t have a means of writing the image file out though. Would someone here be interested in testing that the image can be used to make a disk, or even better test this under BeOS R4 or R5 to see if the same error pops up?
