Hello is it still possible to use BeOS drivers in Haiku? I tried to use a soundcard driver (CS4236) but it´s only working with BeOS.First I placed the driver in the "bin" folder and linked it to /dev/audio (I tried different folder names) but nothing happens. "User drivers"/boot/home/config/add-ons/kernel/drivers/bin /boot/home/config/add-ons/kernel/drivers/dev/audioIn the second try I placed the driver here (see below) the same result."Administrator drivers" /boot/beos/system/add-ons/kernel/drivers/bin /boot/beos/system/add-ons/kernel/drivers/dev/audio Please help me! ;-) Thanks in advance.
Some ancient drivers needed to be published in ~/config/dev/audio/old and a file called use_old_audio placed in ~/config/settings to enable the boot scripts to find it. I've tried one of these with Haiku but it doesn't seem to work. But this is a BeOS R3 standard I think, so not surprising.
