Haiku was installed on real hardware (dedicated hard drive, Shuttle SN41G2 barebone with 1Gb RAM, nForce2 chipset, NV40 GeForce 6800 video card, no other additional cards than video for now, CD burner). I tried both the alpha ISO and the revision 34648 nightly build ISO hybrid GCC2 from december 12th (http://haiku-files.org/cd/haiku-nightly-r34648-x86gcc2hybrid-cd.zip).
I downloaded ISO, burnt it, booted from CD: when I was offered the choice between running from live CD or calling installer, I called installer. Installation went fine. I removed the CD and rebooted.
When booting, the desktop background and mouse pointer appear but that's all I get: it instantly freezes before the desktop icons even display and the tracker doesn't appear either: neither keyboard nor mouse respond, and the only way I can reboot is using the hardware reset button.
In order to boot the system and be able to use it, I have to press the space bar before Haiku bootscreen turns on, and in the menu choose the very first entry "Safe Mode". I have tried various combinations of other entries (video-safe mode, disable BIOS acess, disable DMA, etc.) but none of them allows me to boot, only the very first "Safe Mode" entry seems to enable me to boot properly.
I have not been able to find syslog (opened Terminal, cd'ed to /var, listed the directory contents, didn't see any log subdirectory in it???).
I am suspecting an audio problem because fail-safe video/VESA doesn't help, but if I boot in safe mode and turn media server on, everything hangs/freezes instantly??
