Haiku R1 Alpha 2 Release Addendum

While the Haiku Project strives for quality in official releases including alpha and betas, there will always be the chance of an unnoticed issue prior to release. This page serves to inform you any notable issues with the release and how to resolve them.

Installer fails on

  • Error Message: General System Error
  • Reproduction: This seems to be caused through a certain combination of media and disc drives. During installation you may encounter a General System Error while copying
  • Resolution (with no internet connection) : To remedy this you need to open the Terminal application and run the following command. It will temporarily remove WebPositive's libaries on the CD. To note, file modification on the LiveCD will not persist across reboots.
    • Click [ Desktop (Live-CD) ]
    • Click the Deskbar --> Applications --> Terminal
    • Enter the following commands
        rm -rf /boot/apps/WebPositive/lib/*.so
  • Once Haiku is installed, reboot into the installed partition and run the following command, which will install WebPositive
      installoptionalpackage webpositive
