[haiku-development] Discover Haiku USB Distro (Dane Scott - TuneTracker Systems)

Mon, 2015-02-16 02:45
Hey guys, It says the Haiku Inc. site that I should ask permission first, so here goes! I'd like to offer a USB-based Discover Haiku distro of Haiku on USB that contains a recent, PM version of Haiku (I have a nightly here that tests very stable and would be a good one I think), plus some extra goodies that would expose new users to some of the fun and usefulness of the OS. Haiku would be bootable right off the stick, and/or installable to their hard drive. I wouldn't be altering the operating system itself in anyway. It would be similar ...

The user guide describes the proper use of the /boot/common and /boot/home/config directory trees. These are now broken. Software that expects to add a binary or lib in either tree cannot. Scripting that expects binarys in /boot/home/config/bin or /boot/common/bin cannot find the binary in the /boot/home/config/non-packaged/bin directory. ...

I think the chances of someone calling themselves Weyoun 5 and not being a troll are pretty slim especially when their email is hosted on outlook.com :P ... know your star trek people even if it is DS9. And just like a troll were you to ban him he'd just come back as Weyoun 6, 7 and 8 (clones of course there might be more but who knows since the dominion was defeated). Admittedly I have found package management annoying somewhat in it's design... but I guess it is a good design even if it doesn't emulate what I find ideal (something like Archlinux or pkgsrc for simplicity with versioned archives for backwards compatiblity). ...

Hi, Just a quick clarification about the thread title : Haiku isn't developed by Haiku Inc. Haiku Inc is a non profit corporation who's mainly there to take care about trademark related issues, manage donation funds, etc. All the technical decisions are made by the community and its developers (mostly volunteers). I want to make sure that Haiku inc isn't targetted injustly. ...

[haiku-development] GSoC ideas list needs list of possible mentors (Adrien Destugues)

Sat, 2015-02-14 19:45
Hi, During the last few weeks I worked on improving and updating our ideas page for Google Summer of Code. I made the description of the ideas a bit more complete and tried to provide liks to relevant code or documentation. The goal is to make the ideas more clear to the students and make them interesting enough so it's worth the effort to join the ML or IRC channel to learn more. I added a possible mentors entry to the ideas, which gives students a ...
