The second alpha of the Haiku OS has been released. I downloaded a VM image on my MacBook Pro and tried compiling and installing Hiawatha on it. I had to do some little tricks to get it done, but I managed to get Hiawatha up and running on Haiku!
These are the things I did after downloading and unzipping the Hiawatha 7.2 source tarball:
If everything went well, Hiawatha is now installed in /boot/home/hiawatha. I had to disable SSL and XSLT support, because the required OpenSSL and XML/XSLT libraries were not present in the VM image. I have no idea yet if there are available as a package or something. But for an initial test it's not relevant, so I disabled those functionalities.
After starting Hiawatha, I pointed my browser to the IP address of the VM and there I saw Hiawatha's 'Congratulations' web page. I will do some more research in order to make Hiawatha 7.3 compile under Haiku without any tricks or code changing.
