So I fail to understand the logic of saying that releasing a alpha with a new webkit browser, PM, APIC, Scheduler and tons of bug fixs, driver enhancements etc is worse then Alpha4. I get it, it needs to be good enough, but its going to be better previous alphas. My issue however, is that instead of finding ways to say YES, people are focusing on ways to say NO. Haiku finally has enough regular donors to pay a developer on a semi full time basis. another Alpha with good press my help to leverage that further, more donors, or encourage existing users to donate more. ...

IMHO, 1) and 2) above also depend on the actual release to be at least somewhat good. It's not helpful to generate interest in Haiku, when it's actually disappointing to try the release. And what good is a sucky release as a basis for third party developers to target with their apps? Nobody will keep using it anyway. And what then, just keep throwing out sucky releases until everyone writes us off once and for all? ...

To: John Scipione: Thank you for the tip to use Paladin, I stopped using it because I could not figure how to compile my device driver code with it, but the other code did work with it so I will go back to using it again. The device drivers that compiled ok under GCC2 were compiled on the standard nightlies, but when I boot x86_64 Haiku and try to compile them there they would compile but when placed in the same locations as the Hybrid-Haiku I received odd messages about bad data and they would not work. ...

Earl Pottinger wrote on Wed, 28 May 2014 15:18:32 -0700 (PDT): I would just like to point out that while I am having problems with re-compiling the code that most of the original binaries are running fine. If you don't mind dual booting or have a virtual machine with BeOS, you could continue to write your code in BeOS and test on Haiku. I usually do that for some of my projects (vncserver for example), though I also compile things on Haiku for people using gcc4. - Alex ...

The device drivers do compile and work under GCC2, but while GCC4 will compile them the resulting drivers will not load. The gcc4 compiled drivers definitely wont load in a gcc2 kernel in case that is what you were trying. ...
