Here's the reason why the official ones were taken down.

Thank You for doing this. Something like weekly images would be very appreciated :)

Very nice, sikosis. But I can't get in, I see only this nice Haiku logo.. And thank God for Google's cache, for I wouldn't have known what to do with this image :)

Noted and Instructions have been added to the blog now.

I'll just be uploading new versions over the top of the current image.

This will happen around 7am to 10am GMT +10.

Any chance of a VPC image :)

Yes thanks for providing the images.

I too would like a VPC image as it is faster.

Also I only just found this blog, and posted in an earlier blog entry. I was wondering if it is possible to provide what I am asking below.

Okay just learning how to provide a clickable link.

Thanks for that, I'll look into it.

I tried out the VPC image last night and it pretty much hung, when it started. I'll upload another build in about 2-3 hours.

Has anyone had any luck getting this to boot under the Windows Bochs? One would think that it'd work identically to BeBochs, but this doesn't appear to be the case.

Specifically, I get the image set up per the instructions for BeBochs, and Bochs complains "Error loading OS; press any key to reboot."

Any ideas?

 
At 26/10/05 1:25 PM, Blogger Sikosis said...

I thought it was cool that this free VMware player lets you open Virtual PC images as well, until I went to test it.

It wouldn't run my Haiku or BeOS Pro VirtualPC images, even though they work under VPC.

Strange that my Windows 2003 Server and Windows XP SP2 image both worked though.

Okay. Thanks for confirming that.

The Build Factory is currently down - I lost power last night and the machine won't start up at present ... I didn't have a chance to look at it properly this morning, I'll do that over the weekend.

Hopefully it's not too bad as this is my main machine.

 
At 29/10/05 11:31 AM, Blogger Sikosis said...

Unfortunately the mobo and the gfx card are borked ...

Looks like I'm up for a new rig - I've got another machine that I'll set up for the Build Factory in the next couple of days.

Sorry for any inconvenience.

 
At 31/10/05 3:38 PM, Blogger Sikosis said...

The Factory is well under way again and Ingo's new build system has been taken into account as well.

Wheee ... I just crashed Haiku running Backgrounds ... awesome :D

How about using the image with qemu under windows? For some reason I cannot decompress the image file that is currently up. (think winrar does not like them for some reason) but once i get image out of that file, will see about making a package with qemu.

 
At 1/11/05 2:14 AM, Blogger Alex Harvey said...

Okay so I did what i recommended. I now have a zip with qemu and haiku that you can just extract and run, on windows. Anyone feel like hosting the 23mb file?

Just thought I'd throw out a bit of advice. If you want to use this image under Bochs running on windows, you'll have to give it the correct drive geometry, which is 163/16/63. 122/16/63 is for a 60mb drive, and this image decompresses out to an 80mb drive.

I took the liberty of adding instructions on how to use the haiku.image file under VMWare to the wiki.

Enjoy!

thanks Xaroth ... I'll have to give that a wurl.

I have one problem with 31.10 image - ImageMounter says something about 'invalid argument'. I had no problems with 30.10 version.

 
At 2/11/05 3:09 AM, Blogger borg1980 said...

Small update :)
Image from 31.10 is ca 3 MB smaller than one from 30.10 (16 vs 13 MB). Furthermore I see some skipped files (errors?) in HD Image Log on Haiku Build Factory.

 
At 2/11/05 9:11 AM, Blogger Sikosis said...

Yeh doesnt look like its building at the moment, hopefully, that'll be address shortly.

I tried 30.10 on real hardware on the w/e, but I haven't tried 31.10

 
At 3/11/05 2:16 AM, Blogger borg1980 said...

I played with 02.11 binaries and still cannot mount images with ImageMounter ('invalid argument' report) but all is correct on Axel's Mountimage app.
Thanks again for Your great work for Haiku.

I had no power when I woke up this morning. Gotta love storm season. Anyway, when I get home from work, I'll fire up the Build Factory (SERENITY) and start building away.

 
At 6/11/05 11:48 PM, Blogger Sikosis said...

I'm really impressed with the state of the latest images, they run really well on my P4 2.6 - I'll have to look into the QEMU BootCD next, then probably work on the OzHUG distro.

 
At 6/11/05 11:50 PM, Blogger Sikosis said...

Oh I thought I'd also mention I had fun running the images on my iMac under QEMU, unfortunately, the mouse support was either non-existant or bad. Still, I was do most thinks from the command line via the Haiku shell.

 
At 7/11/05 3:01 AM, Blogger borg1980 said...

Since few days i cannot start Tracker on Haiku - it has probably something to do with last app_server changes.

Me too. Maybe it's a problem due to VMware... i don't know. :|

Ah that might have been during the middle of an upload ...

The updates happen every 12 hours - at 11am/11pm GMT +10 (Brisbane Time).

When we can expect new preferences app download with description? :))

 
At 15/1/06 9:22 AM, Anonymous Göran said...

It seems like the current image is corrupt. At least 7zip says that when it has unpacked it. Is it only me having problems with it?

Sikosis,

You asked on my blog about a PowerPC machine for PowerPC images. I have spoken to Ingo, who is doing all the work on PowerPC at the moment, and he said that you should be able to build a PowerPC build on a Intel machine using cross-compilers.

Right now, Ingo informs me a PowerPC image wouldn't be much use, but you might might want to get in touch with him about setting it up for the future.

Thanks,

Andrew McCall

I posted a VMWare Player download here for this. Also, someone from VMWare left a comment showing some interest in including this disk image on VMWare's page for experimental operating systems.

I'm playing with Haiku in VMware server which you can download for free. If you don't want to set anything up you can also download the player from VMware.com and use settings (vmx files etc.) from Mike T AND if you wish you can even copy the latest image over the older which is provided here: [url] http://blindmindseye.com/2006/02/22/heres-the-haikuos-disk-image-as-promised/ [url] and have an up-to-date Haiku in VMware! : )

It would be nice having the svn revision as part of the filename, so it's easier to store a couple of them.
