Haiku can now boot of an usb stick on the Acer Aspire 5520 laptop.
I usually try to boot haiku on my machines every so often and today it finally didn’t crash at boot. I have it running without a crash for 2 hours. The network worked with dhcp but I haven’t manadged to get the sound card to work even with oss(dough I use oss in open solaris on the same machine and it works). Also the resolution is only 1024x768. The firewire port is detected but I have no way of testing if it works.
Quite impresed with the overall speed of the system, even firefox opens in a decent amount of time and GLTeapot has around 200 fps.
DiskSetup can see all my partitons but none can be mounted as they use xfs.
Great work by the developers behind this project. I can’t wait to see the alpha release.
Now time to see how much it can take before it crashes.
The laptops :
Acer Aspire 5520
AMD Turion 64 x2
2 gb ram
NVIDIA GeForce 7000 256 mb
