I guess it doesn't like running on REAL OpenFirmware ;)


you mean the real broken one ? ;-)


Pegasos and Efika OF implementations are fully compliant.

Apple Mac ones are too, but when booting on the Mac you have to do weird tricks as they implement far fewer features. These weird tricks will not work on Pegasos or Efika.

Bitching about "broken firmware" on the Pegasos is usually from people who are attempting to use the OF CIF as a driver interface which is always, always a bad idea and always has been. Then there are the people who want to use Yaboot (which is a Mac hack). GRUB2 works great. Booting without a bootloader works great. Writing native drivers works great. The OF is fine...

Haiku Press Release:

Quote:
Haiku Project Announces Availability of Haiku R1/Alpha 1

The Haiku Project is proud to announce the availability of Haiku R1/Alpha 1, the first official development release of Haiku, an open source operating system that specifically targets personal computing. The purpose of this release is to make a stable development snapshot of Haiku available to a wider audience for more extensive testing and debugging. This will help the Haiku development team identify and address bugs, and thus improve the quality of the system as development keeps advancing towards the subsequent development milestones. Bugs found in Alpha 1 should be reported to the Haiku bug tracking system at http://dev.haiku-os.org.

This first alpha release of Haiku comes approximately eight years after the project kicked off, and is the direct result of the dedication of many volunteer contributors from all over the world. Special thanks go to former Project Leader Michael Phipps, as well as to the small but very resilient group of core developers who stuck with the project throughout the years.

Alpha 1 will be followed by additional development milestones, eventually leading to the long-awaited final release of Haiku R1. These subsequent official milestones will be announced as the release dates are defined by the Haiku development team.

Good to hear! I remember BeOS with warmth! :-)

Haiku could in time become a very nice non-Linux desktop alternative for your hardware, and your i.MX515 offerings are a helluvalot more interesting than the Beagle board and what else they are talking about over there, so it's an obvious win-win! :-)
