Now I'm in NetBSD-current (6.99.44), X won't start but I have Internet connection. There is no working cut-and-paste by mouse as I have in FreeBSD. So I can't update References or quote for context in a reasonable way. Advantage of Rod Smith's gdisk is that it's general-purpose rather than OS-specific. Rod Smith's gdisk can be built for Linux, FreeBSD and MS-Windows as far as I know, but it can't format a partition. I can create a Haiku BFS partition as type eb00. It really needs to run where the drive being partitioned has no mounted partitions. ...

Haiku sits snugly in a single partition. The swap area is a (large!) file in /var (actually /boot/system/var). You can change its size if you should ever need to with the 'VirtualMemory' Preference app. (The main thing to remember is ...

Could we reuse our GSoC project ideas and mentor pool for the projects that didn't make it this year? If so that would give us an instant list of potential project ideas. Yes (they could be improved and more detailed, however). We have only one week left to apply, so someone should handle this quickly. -- Adrien. ...

I looked at the /dev tree with ls, it looked like it saw my hard-drive partitions (GPT). I think I'd boot from GRUB2 with chainloader. It looks like Haiku creates the device nodes dynamically as do current versions of Linux and FreeBSD. NetBSD and OpenBSD still use preconfigured device nodes with MAKEDEV, like ...

This still doesn't render as expected, but showing the image in a new tab works fine, so there's more than just the SVG rendering here.
