x86 build won't install, etc

Description

Just built a pure x86 cross-compiler today and - for shits and giggles - decided to try building the x86 version of Haiku.

It almost worked. The installer tells me there's an error of "No Error" when clicking install. Booting from the USB stick and running it from there I got as far as a desktop, but it had no logo and the Tracker dropboxes weren't available so I couldn't run any of the standard programs or demos.

Since this is my first non-hybrid build I'm unsure whether this is all normal at the current stage of development, or whether it's wrong.

I don't know what "Tracker dropboxes" are. The non-hybrid builds of Haiku should have mostly everything available. the only exception is WebPositive will not be available in an x86_gcc2 non-hybrid.

Have you initialized your target volume before installing? I think installing over a previous install could cause such problems. Make sure to install on an empty/freshly formatted volume.
