For installing Haiku on a Mac Mini, after I unsuccessfully tried compiling on the that machine, I tried compiling it on a Macbook, and then building on the Mac Mini. Below are the error messages received:
headers/os/support/Errors.h:52:0: warning: "B_ERROR" redefined [enabled by default]
Error: couldn't open file /dev/disk0s4 (Resource busy)
I am wondering if I was close to getting it installed by the means that I tried, or if it simply is impossible to compile on one machine and build on another. Might anyone have any thoughts in that regard?
If it is not possible, I plan to try other means, but I thought that I’d inquire about this method first because I got much further in the install process than I had when trying to compile on the Mac Mini itself.
What do you mean by “compile on one machine and build on another”?
Sorry about not giving more details previously!
I made a disk image on a MacBook.
Then I compiled, using GCC4, on that disk image located on the MacBook.
Then I copied the disk image to a USB flash drive, and then copied the disk image from the flash drive to a Mac Mini.
Then, from the disk image on the Mac Mini, I tried to build to a partition on the Mac Mini.
Later, while doing a process of elimination, I tried compiling using GCC4 on a disk image located on the Mac Mini. Compiling on the Mac Mini using GCC4 succeeded, although building did not succeed.
The next thing I plan to try is installing a Linux distribution on the Mac Mini, and trying to compile and build using the Linux operating system.
