Latest Bugs & Tasks
This is hrev49089.
Currently the different translators are all jumbled together. I supposed sorting them under "image", "text" etc. would be a nice idea. Maybe in the future the "DataTranslations" preferences can be become a "Media Formats" preferences and include settings for audio and video formats as well.
Here's a mockup, that also changes the design of the right side of the window, moving the icon up and removing the "Info" button:
When trying to install Haiku, it won't recognize my hard drives with AHCI mode enabled, and the installer kicks me out to KDL (and a nonfunctioning USB keyboard) with native IDE mode enabled. Once installed (to a flash drive), however, it recognizes the hard drives just fine in native IDE mode.
I cannot access the Internet at all with my Nforce mobo's built-in ethernet. It's just loading the page forever, and Network shows me sending little bits of data and receiving half nothing.

On real hardware
The buildbot scripts have been adjusted to produce weekly @release-raw debug builds instead. Thanks, zooey!
Fixed in hrev49105.
if you have some layout improvements please comment below.
I have a System76 Gazelle Pro laptop which has a i7-4700MQ CPU with Intel HD 4600 integrated graphics. To successfully boot 49058 GCC2 hybrid I have to use fail-safe graphics mode (and blacklist the iprowifi4965 driver).
I do not need to use fail-safe video mode when I boot alpha4.1 on this laptop but that version doesn't support my ethernet chipset whereas recent nightlies do.
Haiku's network config tool doesn't list my Centrino 2230 as an available device under 49058 GCC2 Hybrid.
There is a backported FreeBSD 9 driver for the 2230 that I'd like to see included in Haiku here:
I presume this will also require that the install-wifi-firmware script be updated so it can fetch the firmware for the 2230?
This problem is systematic. Segmentation violation on RemoveChild() view detach().
I'm getting SSL warnings in WebPositive. Most easily tested is buying an item on ebay then going to Paypal, at which time the warning pops up saying that the certificate can't be confirmed.
I also have to log in to Paypal twice, which is different behaviour to any other OS I've used.
In the Time preflet, the 'Set time zone' button is greyed out. Changing from local time to GMT (actually called UTC since forever) also does nothing.
hrev 49058 installed.
I seems that you're using A4.1 which had CPUfrequency preflet. It was deleted more that a year ago, see http://cgit.haiku-os.org/haiku/log/src/preferences/cpufrequency
So please use a recent nightly image to report bugs http://download.haiku-os.org/nightly-images/x86_gcc2_hybrid/
On my Lenovo T60 laptop the CPU speed is detected correctly as Core Duo 1.83GHz but the menu bar shows it as ??GHz.
Also, the manufacturer isn't detected which is kind of curious given that these things are pretty old and common.
Model: AMD Radeon R5 230
PCI ID: VEN 1002 DEV 6779
When attempting to boot Haiku nightly, the boot screen shows up fine, but instead of displaying the desktop I get a black screen.
When trying to build an x86_64 Haiku image on a gcc2h Haiku host, I end up with an image that can't be booted by the haiku_loader. The error reported is "Version mismatch between boot loader and kernel!".
I'm failing to see anything obvious in the jam logs that would indicate a problem with how the files are compiled.
In order to build on Haiku, I use setarch x86 and run all commands in the gcc4 environment.
setarch x86 configure --build-cross-tools x86_64 ../buildtools --use-gcc-pipe -j4 jam -q -j4 @minimum-anyboot
I am also attaching a copy of the log generated by jam.
