What chipset does your motherboard use? My Intel G33BU uses the G33 (X3100 graphics) w/ a Core 2 Quad (Q6600) and Haiku wasn't booting on it a while back.
It is an Asus Maximus Extreme with a Intel X38/ICH9R chipset. It does not have graphics onboard but I have 2 Radeon HD 3870 in crossfire mode (well, not in Haiku, unfortunatelly ;) ).
Are you running Haiku and JAMing new revisions of Haiku in Haiku?
I only did that once and it worked. But usually I just copy the sources to the image during the build process.
You said you need 1.5Gb minimum to actually do this?
1.2 Gb actually, but yes.
I already have 1Gb (two 512Mb sticks of DDR2 533Mhz)... I could easily enough snag another 512Mb stick...
That would do it. I have 2 x 1Gb DDR3 1333Mhz sticks. -Bruno
