[haiku-development] Re: Maintainer of the ARM port (Michael David Crawford)

Sun, 2015-05-17 20:45
I own a Gumstix Overo Fire card with a TI OMAP processor - two cores, one an ARM Cortex A8, the other a TI c6xxx DSP. It has an I/O daughtercard with lots of ports, including 1024x768 video, USB and serial. I'd love to help with an ARM port. My sister and her husband lent me their Android phones after they bought new ones; I'm not real sure they'd ever want them back. It would be quiet cool to get Haiku to run on what would otherwise be ...

how about syslogging into a dedicated partition? You'd need to set the partition up ahead of time, then identify it in the boot parameters. A userspace tool to dump it out after a successful boot would be straightforward. If you had a second partition with a known-good OS, you'd boot, crash, boot into that good OS then examine the partition syslog.

[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 ...

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 ...
