I quess I have to do this upgrade several time in a future. Though, I'm
running Haiku in a laptop which can't boot from usb drive. Should I burn
cd every time I want to upgrade or is there any other way to do this?

I found this from haiku web site:

# under BeOS to partition X on the master on the first channel
dd if=/path/to/image of=/dev/disk/ide/ata/0/master/X

Can I use this method to upgrade alpha1 to latest nightly build?


It is also possible to build haiku directly to a partition using "jam -q install-haiku", if you set the proper settings in your userbuildconfig (don't have them at thand here, sorry). This seems a bit broken at the moment with libstdc++ and libsupc++ not getting copied to the new image, but I expect this to be solved soon.
