Ideas

For information about Haiku's participation in GSoC this year, please see this page. Qualifying students can apply for a Haiku project (see the list of suggested projects below). For details about how to apply, please check out Students: How to Apply for a Haiku Idea. According to other mentor organizations, the most successful Google Summer of Code projects are often those proposed by the students themselves. The following list represents some of our ideas and wishes for the project.

Software Sites

Here's a list of sites providing 3rd party software for Haiku. Some offer a direct download of HPKG packages or zip archives, others have a repository which you can add to Haiku with the "Repositories" preference panel. BeBytes - The BeOS Software Archive: A software archive like the old BeBits in BeOS times. BeSly Software Repo: A repository for Haiku software. Clasqm's repo: A repository with a huge collection mainly of packaged BeOS applications, but also new Haiku software, documentation, fonts, demos and other things.

Emulating Haiku In VMware Fusion

There are several methods offered to install Haiku. Among those, only the vmdk and the iso methods are suitable for running Haiku easily on VMware Fusion. Basically these are the two methods that will be shown in this guide. The easiest of all is utilising the vmdk which is already properly configured. Running Haiku from a VM image is recommended to avoid any possible problems. Unless it does not work, or you would like to simulate an actual installation, do stick to this method.

Virtualizing Haiku in Parallels Desktop

Virtual instances of operating systems are perfect for all kinds of testing purposes that need to be done in a safe and isolated environment. Installing Haiku in a virtual machine is a solution for people who do not want to install it on their physical computers, but wish to become familiar with it. This guide will describe the process of running Haiku on a virtual machine (VM) using Parallels Desktop 13.

Virtualizing Haiku in SimNow

This article is aimed at developers, as AMD SimNow is both a Virtual machine and an AMD hardware emulator. If you just want to try Haiku out, you might want to use another VM that is more aimed at end users. Go to section: Downloading Haiku Downloading AMD SimNow Installing AMD SimNow Preparing the Virtual Machine Running the Virtual Machine Downloading Haiku There are several methods offered to install Haiku.

Virtualizing Haiku in VMware Workstation

Virtual instances of operating systems are perfect for all kinds of testing purposes that need to be done in a safe and isolated environment. Installing Haiku in a virtual machine is a solution for people who do not want to install it on their physical computers, but wish to become familiar with it.
