Hi all, I’ve been a long past BeOS user and have also been involved in the early BeGeistert Meetups, those where fun!
Anyhow, I’m pondering and tinkering a bit with Haiku recently and am currently running it on MacOS via
qemu-system-x86_64 -hda haiku.qcow2 -cdrom /Users/fabian/Downloads/haiku-r1beta2-x86_64-anyboot/haiku-r1beta2-hrev54154_111-x86_64-anyboot.iso -m 4G -vga virtio -display cocoa,show-cursor=on -usb -device usb-tablet -cpu max -machine accel=hvf -smp 8,cores=2,threads=2 -net nic,model=virtio -net user,hostfwd=tcp::10022-:22
Those parameters are a mere attempt to get it working somewhat well, mostly copy and pasted together from stuff I found online.
My Host is
- MacOS 11.2,
- 6 core Intel Core i7-9750H, Coffee Lake
- AMD Radeon Pro 5500M 8 GB
- Intel UHD Graphics 630 1536 MB
Haiku inside of it runs rather slow, everything is kinda laggy and feels def. slower than BeOS R5 on a Pentium II
Is anyone aware of a way to make Haiku as Guest on a MacOS Host via Qemu more performant?
And is there a possibility to get the Intel-GPU working? I know that AMD won’t work.
