Hello Haiku community!
It was fun to use Be years ago .
At least i got my old laptop working! I was trying to install and try out haiku for a long time . But due dying harddrive , i was getting crashes on installation and starting up. Now i got myself another harddrive and was able to successfully install ans start Haiku . I was palying with it for few days now , installing different nighty builds . Right now i use 43976.
My laptop specs are :
Fujitsu Siemens S6010WB
1GHZ Pentium III
40 Gb HDD
Intel Extreme Graphics 2 (i830MG) - as screen configuration window shows me , so i suppose haiku use right driver
LAN is rtl8139 (Realtek RTL8139 PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter) - should be supported , i get link via DHCP , seems ok.
WIFI wavelanwifi ( Intersil ISL3874 , Prism 2.5 ) - Can't get it working , don't show any network
Intel 82801 AC'97 audio controller - was trying to get mp3 file playing - no sound
Laptop also have bluetooth, firewire and softmodem - don't use it , so can't comment
So i could have some help getting sound and wifi working on WPA-PSK network.
Bigger problem right now :
I can't download any browser using Terminal and installoptionalpackage command . I was able to get some packages , like wpa_supplicant and few others, just fine , using lan connection. But every time i try to get some larger package loaded , computer just locks up . No KDL , no nothing , screen freezing , total lockup.
Is there any possibility to look what is crashing system ? Like process explorer or something?
Using ActivityMonitor , i saw 100% CPU use, when Terminal using command , but not in the moment it locks up . While downloading package CPU activity is around 20-30%
Need help here !
I was wondering , why Haiku have some demos and smaller utilities and stuff like that , but not any browser ? Can't even read manual from desktop.
