[haiku-development] Maintainer of the ARM port (Georg Lanzl)

Sun, 2015-05-17 01:45
Hi all, after an evaluation of various ARM board for a project at work I have currently four or five boards available and as i’m not very happy width the linux versions available I was wondering if HAIKU is ready for ARM. After some reading I gave it a try width the beagle board and ended up in KDL when trying to mount the roots (as expected). As I’ve been always a fan of BeOS and now of HAIKU I decided to get my hands dirty and try to get some things done. A year ago I did some low-level ARM ...

You just repackage them. It's actually pretty simple, and so much nicer for your users. The more interesting issue is, however, where to put them. And that one hasn't been solved yet AFAIK. An alternative repository is a role Haikuware could have adopted, but Karl's plans were apparently something else. This all depends on the programs being accepted into haikudepot. This ...

Adding a link to HDS to be able to install the packages directly would be from HDS, synchronize ratings/comments/user logins, etc. would be a huge effort. For nothing else, AFAICT than a prettier interface. Why not just make HDS's look/UI more consumer ready instead? That would ...

Hi, providing package translations and screenshots and that stuff, but also with quality management. Eventually, there could be staged repositories (bleeding edge, testing, stable) and packages would transition between these repositories based on some form of user feedback/stability rating. I'm afraid that by creating a parallel effort to HaikuDepot Server, there ...
