I have been away from Haiku for a good while. As my needs changed I retired my old Thinkpad X200, then tripped across Haiku again and thought I would give it a go again.
I installed the 64 bit version of Haiku beta and it runs well. Sound does not work. I tried a couple solutions from the forum, but nothing worked and I understand it is common for Lenovo hardware. About half the time I boot, the trackpoint does not function and I need to reboot, which gets it working. The x220 had a very poor trackpad and I do prefer using the trackpoint.
I used Be 20 years ago and have some software from the era. I gather the 32 bit version has compatibility with older software. I am thinking of switching to the 32 bit version and install the old Gobe Productive suite to see if it runs. Personally I was quite fond of that software suite.
Package management with HaikuDepot is very nice and there is a lot of software choices. The X220 use to run Kubuntu and it was interesting to see all the KDE software in the repositories. I installed the Calligra suite, which I am familiar with, but I recall liking Gobe Productive better.
Can anyone tell me if Gobe Productive runs on 32 bit Haiku?
Congratulation to the developers on a very nice and functional system.
