Can I install Alpha 4 from within my Haiku partition?

Forum thread started by benifex on Tue, 2012-11-13 06:43

Apologies for what is probably a silly question for the more technically literate .. but:

I have a Haiku partition on my PC, and I can connect to the internet from that. Can I download Alpha 4 from within this Haiku partition and install it from there as well?

Thanks everyone.

You need to download anyboot A4 image and mount it. Then you'll need too rename /boot/system to something else, and then copy the new /boot/system folder to the boot volume. Of course, you won't be able to start new applications while there is no /system - copying with Tracker works just fine, though.

To mount the anyboot image you have to open the Terminal and type

diskimage register haiku-r1alpha4-anyboot.
