Haiku boot on UEFI system

Hi Guys,

i got an UEFI based computer, and i'm using it happily 2 years ago. It
works very well, my primary OS also installed in EUFI mode.

But Haiku have no UEFI bootloader yet (hopefully soon). I can install
Haiku in Legacy mode, but i don't want to go into BIOS everytime to
change the boot type from UEFI to Legacy everytime, when i want to
boot into Haiku.
I've seen, the Clover bootloader develoeprs made a big progress, so i
thinkig about to let Clover boot Haiku, but my Haiku partition isn't
listed in Clover (maybe user error). Is there any way to boot a legacy
system from UEFI? A bootloader, or something like it, what can create
a "legacy enviroment" to boot Haiku? Any idea?

Thank you!

Query regarding beta1 status for Haiku

The March activity report hinted at the closeness of the beta 1 release because the outstanding ticket threshold of 50 had been reached.  Haven't heard about anything since then. Can anyone comment on the beta 1 status and its  time frame for release?

Thanks,

Dom

Disabling SSL popup for WebPositive

Hello all,

is there a way to disable the SSL certificate warning popups for 
WebPositive?
I understand why it is there, but the current implementation is very 
annoying and makes some sites nearly unusable as it seems to warn for 
every element it loads from a site it doesn't trust or can't get the 
certificate from. For example, if I visit the bitbucket.org website, I 
get a lot of those popups (42, just loading the front page). Also, is 
there a reason why it can't get the certificate? Perhaps there is 
something wrong with my installation?

Kind regards,

Mark Hellegers

Printer/printing status in Haiku?

What is the status of printing, especially laser and ink-jet, in Haiku, compared to Linux, FreeBSD and NetBSD?

I have a printer, HP LaserJet Professional 1212nf MFP, that refuses to set up in NetBSD and FreeBSD with
hplip.  All I have left is to see if it will set up in NetBSD with wine, using the MS-Windows way (small chance,
but leave no stone unturned).

My question for this list is how Haiku compares in this general area with Linux and BSD.

I don't think there is any wine build for Haiku (www.winehq.org).

Should I have sent this query to another list, like haiku-devel or one of the lists dealing with haikuports
and 3rd party, or is this the appropriate place to start?

Re: Leaving

What on earth is all this Ying-yang yammering about?  This type of bickering gets HaikuOS no further, it
benefits no one.  It hampers morale, and slows down productivity.

If this is to do with the loss of Haikuware/Bebits, we need to stop arguing about it and simply DO something
about it.

The only question I have is WHY did he (name escapes me at the moment) take down those two sites and replace
them with some Senryu page?  What is his beef with Haiku?

I apologize

I apologize for trolling this list. I assumed that everyone just knew it was me because I always let
everyone know when I was friendly trolling. Now I just want to be clear. It was me.

So if anyone new comes by with an idea, criticism or suggestion for improvement for Haiku, you can be rest
assured that it is me and that I am only joking around. Because I am your friendly troll.

Haiku Revolution

Hello. My name is not Che Gueverra. I am not a general field marshall in the Haiku Liberation Organization.
Instead all that information is irrelevant and my other fake name is Yessir Haikufat.

The picture below looks cool.

RMLL/LSM booth and talks

Hello,

I've been confirmed that we will have a booth at RMLL (the Libre
Software Meeting) that is held this year in Beauvais :
https://2015.rmll.info/

We need to be at least 2 or 3 to handle the booth from July 6th to 10th,
volunteers welcome.

I also have 2 Haiku-related talks:
- the ARM and PPC port status (hopefully we'll see some progress before
July :p)
- making Haiku accessible (as in, for disabled: screen reader,
brailletty...).

François.
