WORKING

  • Wifi
  • Intel Video Driver (Rendering issues on screen, usually with scrollbars, or moving windows with graphic content)
  • Wacom Graphire A6 classic USB
  • Microsoft touch wireless mouse (takes time to recognize it when plugging the receiver)
  • PrintScreen, it does capture the screen to be saved
  • USB drive access. Mounts the pendrive read only or read-write
  • Pinyin Chinese works though has to be typed character by character

HALF WORKING

  • Bluetooth BCM92046 Links to phone but takes ages to pair, but that is about it, no file transfer, not anything, just pair (also causes wifi connection drops)
    - Arrow Keys don’t work properly (maybe because the computer is old, but works fine in BIOS and bootmanager)
    Arrow keys don’t work properly even in the BIOS. Sorry, my mistake…
  • Connect phone through USB to transfer photos with PhotoGrabber makes PhotoGrabber go crazy, scrolling the same photo again and again and again and again, and when switching workspaces the PhotoGrabber location on the screen turns grey on other workspaces

NOT WORKING

  • Power Manager (computer is extremely hot all the time. Battery level does not work properly and computer turns off on battery after 5 minutes, wether batery level is still at 76%)
  • Close lid doesn’t suspend
  • TCP/IP printing
  • Fn keys for volume up/down, brightness…
  • VGA Out … plug the VGA cable with laptop on locks the system. Restart with the VGA cable plugged starts the syste with laptop display on but messed up (contetns fill left half of screen, right half appears black with some wobbling vertical lines), and external display “Out of Range”
  • Plug a phone through USB doesn’t result in anything. Phone storage does not mount (Android phone)
  • SD Card Reader does not recognize SD card
  • Motion Eye Webcam not recognized by the OS
  • Shutdown does not work either. Restart does
  • Samba Shares don’t show anything on the network

I will keep this machine with Haiku. Hope the Video out can be fixed soon, so I can use it for the meeting presentations.

Regards,
RR

Create a ticket with syslog.

PhotoGrabber is not integral part of the OS, contact the developer or the maintainer.

You should test it with other OS, maybe your fan is dusted. If it is ok on other OS, then create a ticket.

Haiku have no suspend support yet.

Create a ticket.

Also needs a ticket.

And a ticket, again.

Haiku have no MTP support yet.

SD-Card support is in development. Current images have no support for SD card readers.

Haiku have limited webcam support. Most webcams doesn’t working.

Needs more info and a ticket.

Not integral part of the OS, and it supports only SMBv2 shares. Contact the author.


Before you creating a ticket, please check if there is already one, and if so, add your info to the existing ticket.


#3

At this point, only raw data transfers are implemented (Essentially useful for debugging), file transfers, audio, etc, are not implemented yet.


#4

Apologies for my ignorance, but how and where do I file a ticket?


#5

No worries! Take a look over at this website:
dev.haiku-os.org
There should be instructions on the website for creating tickets.


#6

I use the VESA drivers when I need my VGA output. With Intel it currently doesn’t work. However, it’s not nice that it manages to break your internal display. Please grab a syslog with and without VGA display connected and attach them to a bugreport. I’ll see if I can spot something.


#7

I tried that, (power on on safe graphics mode in the boot manager). This is what happens:
1- if i plug the VGA cable once the laptop is up and running, the system freezes. Force hardware shutdown is the only way to get out.
2- if i plug the VGA cable and then turn on the laptop, the system works, Screen finds the display Asus MW22, but can’t see anything on the display.
Unplugging the VGA cable freezes the system needing a force hardware shutdown.

Later I will do the Syslog thing.
