Want to make money, working with Haiku? Here’s your chance.
We (TuneTracker Systems) need someone to handle hardware for us, find a successful HW profile (and probably even assemble our stations-in-a-box) to deliver consistent user experience.
Getting help in that department will take a huge burden off our shoulders. The make-or-break criteria is that the successful candidate is the one able to find a “reproducible” hardware config : once you find out which motherboard/processor combo to use, you must be able to deliver the exact same one for months, about once a week. This allows us to be confident that, once we run regression testing on a given hardware profile, we can make sales on it without having to test from scratch each time.
This likely rules out craig’s list style hardware procurement, as that would procure lots of different motherboards in single instances, instead of one make/model of motherboard in many instances.
Dane will discuss the “what’s in it for me” aspect, we’ll probably find a reward structure that encourages you to be autonomous in the “find compatible mobo” stage, and then rewards you nicely once you find something that runs Haiku and TTS software like a champ
I’ll help with the tech aspects (what features we need: HDA, networking, RS-232 serial port etc, and the focus on stability: make sure the selected hardware profile relies on the more stable Haiku drivers, to avoid KDLs and the such).
Please spread this to other communities you think might help.
