However, for me the sound isn’t working. I have the latest .iso release and the latest updates. Is there something I’m missing?

Also, I can’t figure out how to execute .jar files. Is there an environment variable I need to set? I installed the OpenJDK from the Haiku Depot. I made the .jar executable, but Haiku gives a prompt that it’s a mistake that the .jar is executable. When I try to execute it, it doesn’t work. Thank you for any help.


did you test your sound card with external speakers or headphone?

The entry is from hrev 43612, this is a very old revision. There can be changes in the past and break compatibility. Please make a bug report to the haiku bug tracker


In our hardware database the soundcard are a ac97 from intel. There can be diffent hardware used for this model too.

this isn’t a Haiku-specific question, see for instance: How to make bash wrapper script to execute java jar that takes stdin and outputs to stdout - Stack Overflow

Suggestion is to use a bash script:

exec java -jar whatever.jar "$@"
