1Hi,
2
3Thanks for trying Haiku nightly build. Please note that these versions of
4Haiku may be unstable. Things may get fixed or broken from day to day,
5so if something is not working, try to wait and see if it gets fixed next
6day. If it's not, please report bug on http://dev.haiku-os.org site, and
7remember that bug could already be reported, in which case write Your
8experience as a comment to it.

10Some things may cause trouble and we know it, so we disabled few things:
11
121. APM is disabled, so Haiku will not power off Your computer after You
13 click "shutdown". If You want to test APM and let us know about the
14 results, change configuration in:
15
16 /boot/home/config/settings/kernel/drivers/kernel
17
18 by editing file and uncommenting line:
19
20 "#apm true"
21
22 to:
23
24 "apm true"
25
26 After saving changed file, reboot and see if things works ok. If not
27 You can either change configuration file back or (if Haiku doesn't
28 boot properly) disable APM in boot menu (the one which shows up after
29 You press space while Haiku is booting).
30
312. ACPI is diabled. You can enable it by editing file mentioned above and
32 uncommenting following line:
33
34 #acpi true
35
36 to:
37
38 acpi true
39
40 It also can be disabled from boot menu, just like APM.
41 Some computers need both APM and ACPI enabled to power off, monitor
42 battery state, etc...
43
44
45There are some other "hidden" options, which You may need or want to try:
46
471. We know that on some computers screen resolution is set incorrectly,
48 and Screen preferences may miss some options.
49 In such case You may want to try changing VESA configuration by
50 creating file:
51
52 /boot/home/config/settings/kernel/drivers/vesa
53
54 with following content inside it:
55
56 mode 1024 768 32
57
58 where "1024" is screen width, "768" is screen height and "32" is bit
59 depth (it can be 32, 24, 16 or 8).
60
61
62We hope You'll like Haiku as much as we do, and count on Your bug reports.
63
64We are always looking for help, so if You like Haiku and have some free
65time to spare, check http://www.haiku-os.org/development and see what can
66You help us with.

68Thanks again, have fun!
