Re: Haiku OS on the Raspberry Pi?

<t>as I read it the Open GL ES support will be in an ELF library that is linked into the linux kernel, I see no reason why Haiku can not be build with the same GCC/G++ as linux (unlike the x86 Haiku which has to be build with an old GCC if you want beos compatibility)<br/> <br/> I'm sure the first m...

<t>Val67 said: <br/> <br/> <br/> Hi, I was wondering if Haiku OS (a fast OS that starts under 10 secs) could run on a Raspberry Pi. Haiku works fine with 128 MB of RAM and there is an ARM port in progress. Anyone know?<br/> <br/> <br/> Yes it could, (but the pessimists may have a point that it may n...
