Hello, everyone in the Haiku OS community. I’m Jacob Davis, and this is my first time here.
I have heard of this project several years ago, and tried it out a few times, but never before on such a scale as this. Now, the latest nightly build is installed as of this morning in a VirtualBox VM, and I’ve kept a log on the VM detailing my events…more or less.
As of this writing, these are the specs of both my VM and my host machine.
Virtual Machine (at the time of this post):
Haiku Build 51428 with system kernel dated 9/16/2017
512 MB RAM
32 MB Video RAM
3D Video Acceleration
32 GB virtual hard drive
2 processors, I/O APIC, PAE/NX Enabled
Auich AC97 Soundcard
Intel PRO/1000 MT Network card set to NAT
Oracle VM VirtualBox is running the machine.
My Host Machine:
Toshiba Satellite C675D-S7109
4 GB RAM
AMD E-Series APU (dual-core,) 1.30 GHz, with Radeon Graphics
120GB internal hard drive
2 USB ports
Windows 10 x64
So far, aside from a few bugs, the setup is working.
