I have noticed that virtually NOTHING fom BeOS R5 seems to run in Haiku presently.
Because, whatever I try to install, seems to want something that isn’t already in Haiku. I can’t run SDL-based apps, because Haiku doesn’t have SDL. I try installing the full package of SDL and I can’t do that because something else is missing that IT needs! ARRRGH! Usually it’s some series of .so files or somesuch, but still!
Seems the ONLY thing I’ve gotten to work in Haiku, so far is… get this…
Yes, that blatently worthless Terminal run “Phychiatrist” app. Wow! I’m a power-user now!
So, we definately NEED a specific database of programs that have been tested to work (or install AND work) in, Haiku.
I’d appreciate any input or comments concerning this and maybe we can get something put together in the next few weeks or so.
