Hello. I have bought a second hand 13" Macbook Pro. Intel Core Duo, 4GB RAM, 2 USB ports. It works perfectly in Mac OSX Lion, so this is not a hardware issue.
I want to use Haiku on this Mac. Booting macs from memory stick is really complicated, (or so I'm told,) so I boot it from a CD.
I burn the R1A3 iso file to disc, put it into my Mac, and hold button "c" while it boots. Screen turns black and Haiku logo appears on the Mac. The seven grey icons below the Haiku logo also appear.
Here's the first problem: Sometimes the seven grey icons just stay grey, and nothing more happens. If this happens, I just reboot and try again. Sometimes all seven icons get color, and Haiku loads. It asks about keymap and language. I click on Live CD, not Installer.
Here's the second problem. I use a USB mouse.
The Mac's trackpad and keyboard show no sign of working at all.
My USB mouse (Logitech Unifying wireless) is my only input device. Also, my Unifying USB keyboard does not work in Haiku on this Mac. So, I have no keys at all. The USB mouse works sometimes. The last time I booted it, it worked for a few minutes, then stopped working, then it worked again, then it stopped working...........
So, external USB mouse works good sometimes, but not always. Internal touchpad never works. Internal and external USB keyboard never works.
Also, it does not care about memory sticks being inserted. No icon appears. I know Haiku supports memory sticks, but it does not work on this Mac.
And there is no network access, so I can't transfer syslog. I took a photo of syslog, but it's very long, and a picture can't contain everything.
Deskbar identifies my network card as /dev/net/broadcom570x/0 It says Configuring and then Ready when plugged in, and No link when unplugged. It knows when the network cable is connected, but does not work. WebPositive says "Can't resolve hostname" if I click on any of the links in the Welcome page.
Also, if I click on the sound icon, It says "Could not find the mixer".
So, no keyboard, no touchpad, no sound, sometimes USB mouse (it may work for a few minutes, then stop for a while, then resume working.....), no memory stick, no network connection (although it knows when the cable is inserted, and I know that cable works)...
