Unable to Install Haiku

Forum thread started by augdawg09 on Tue, 2010-06-01 21:30

Recently, I tried to install Haiku on my desktop machine, but the installation was stopped. Haiku said it encountered a "general system error" and stopped at the libwebcore.so file. Does anyone know what this means?

Looks like Haiku cant find the lib file for NetPositive.

That's a known issue of the alpha2 iso9660 cd. You can burn an alpha2 anyboot image which shouldn't have the problem (you might need to change the extension to .iso depending on your burning software).

Coincidentally it's been fixed a few hours ago, so you might also just burn a nightly build of r36990 or newer, that should be available in the next hours on http://www.haiku-files.org
