If memory serves me correctly there was an "undocumented feature" in the BeOS that allowed dragging the yellow tab across so that multiple windows could easily be accessed. I think the sequence was Ctrl-leftclick-drag or something similar.
It would be handy.
Built the PPC cross-compiler and attempted to build for this platform. Assuming jam -q @nightly-anyboot is a valid command (documentation lags the actual code severely) then there's something wrong.
The compiler complains it can't find <stdarg.h> and <stddef.h> early in the build, causing failures. This *appears* to be a problem with the configure script.
../haiku/configure --cross-tools-prefix cross-tools-ppc/bin/powerpc-apple-haiku- --use-gcc-pipe -j2
which seems correct so maybe the cross-compiler build has faults, but that would still be a configure script error.
Just built a pure x86 cross-compiler today and - for shits and giggles - decided to try building the x86 version of Haiku.
It almost worked. The installer tells me there's an error of "No Error" when clicking install. Booting from the USB stick and running it from there I got as far as a desktop, but it had no logo and the Tracker dropboxes weren't available so I couldn't run any of the standard programs or demos.
Since this is my first non-hybrid build I'm unsure whether this is all normal at the current stage of development, or whether it's wrong.
I was undoing several style color changes when IOM crashes.
Since yesterday (May 19th 2015) nightly fails with missing MIT licence in about 10 packages.
The tools to build a cross-compiler for the MIPS platform have been neglected. It seems there hasn't been an active maintainer for some years and with updates to GCC it broke.
Patched and attached.
