As ive got some kinda borked harware in my laptop, a si-3112 chip that wont work with the haiku si-3112 driver and a ati xpress 200M that wont work with the haiku ati driver ive got some huge booting problems with haiku alpha cd, so i was thinking, why not give a driver blacklist option in the boot menu ?
say i need to disable the si-3112 and ati driver to get it booted to fix the problem for my laptop, i just enter "si-3112 ati" into a text field in the boot menu, as it boots when it starts to load drivers, it will check against the blacklist and skip the drivers with these names, ridding me of my problem, giving me the ability to be able to go into the system directories and permanently (delete) the malfunctioning drivers.
Linux has this ability at boot time if you got malfunctioning hardware etc so you need to disable some drivers/driver combinations to make it boot so why should not haiku ? Im sure there are more people then me with problems with drivers/hw =)
