I finally got brave enough to try to install Haiku OS on a computer. I’m an inveterate distrohopper in Linux systems.
I downloaded the file. Nothing was said as to how to unzip the file. Apparently gunzip doesn’t do it, and I had to learn to put quotes around the filename. But I got that.
No problem burning the DVD.
Then I learned my System76 Kudu3 could not boot from DVD.
So I got out an old IdeaPad 110.
Then I learned, through kernel panic, that the installation disk could not create its own partition. So I got out my GPartEd 1.0 disk and created a partition.
And now I discover that it cannot recognize an unformatted partition, and I cannot find how I should format it. (Ext4, fat, or what.)
So this is where I sit. Can anyone get me past this point?
