Latest Bugs & Tasks
When I go to install a boot menu, using Haiku x86_64's Installer, it says it's not available. Or, more precisely, it says it exactly this way:
"BootManager, the application to configure
the Haiku boot menu, could not be
I end up having to use the standard Haiku's (x86) Installer to create a boot menu, which is, at the very least, an inconvenience, because I have to boot up the CD to get to it.
It would be useful if we can print / save a webpage with Web+. For save we can use similar way as printing to file: for example save to PDF.
In Terminal 'tput cols' command always shows 80. No matter, if resized manually or by setting from the menu. Seems to me like hardcoded value.
On the other hand the output of 'tput cols' on Linux, say under konsole, after window having been resized is updated to the current value of terminal emulator window width in chars.
Tested on hrev45428 gcc4 x86, ticket filled as suggested on IRC by diver.
Well, thanks for the investigation in the first place! This actually will also fix a bug in my background branch at github where the client memory allocator may survive the death of the application.
E.g. ftp://ftp.mrunix.net/pub/webalizer/README is hard to read because linebreaks are treated as regular whitespace in HTML, but it's not an HTML page. Not sure how firefox does it but wrapping in a <pre> tag in such cases would be an easy way to increase usability.
Fixed in hrev45435.
I've generated a new version of PatchBay, edited to conform (hopefully!) to Haiku coding standards, and using Haiku's ToolTip mechanism rather than the custom code in the original.
I've added a vector icon for the "Unknown Devices" it displays, and given it a Desktop icon as well.
This ticket is a follow-on from #9159, but following Philippe's suggestion there I've started a new ticket.
As noted there, this code should be in .../apps rather than .../tests/... so if it's OK, can someone please move it there in the repository?
I have an eMachines T3104 (motherboard: VIA K8M800) with a card reader they describe as
"Media Reader: 8-in-1 digital media manager (Secure Digital (SD), Smart Media, Micro Drive, Memory Stick, Memory Stick Pro, Compact Flash, Mulitimedia Card, USB 2.0)"
When I insert an SD card that works fine on a Windows box, it turns on a green light (whether I've yet to get past the BIOS or not.)
In Haiku's DriveSetup on hrev45413 gcc4hybrid, the empty slots seem to show (see screenshot.) However, it doesn't let me mount or modify anything after inserting a card. Lately when I insert the card, I don't even get a chance to modify anything, because I get KDL'd with a division exception on "media checker".
I'm not sure if this has ever worked or what, and I only have Haiku and BeOS on this machine to work with.
Currently (hrev45413 gcc4h) in Tracker there's no way to move to the location bar without the mouse. Might I suggest Alt+L, a la Web+?
Attansic L1 driver (Atheros L1 chip on ASUS M3A motherboard) crashes in KDL on boot and if I move/rename the driver, then after complete booting without the networking it goes into KDL again after I put driver file back and restart net_server.
Couldn't get syslog, so I took the photo.
WebM files are losing all the frames im Haiku. Audio works.
I have BeOS_DemoVideo_20minutes (DivX).avi . MediaPlayer reads the file but it takes a lot of time. In two of three cases, the system is frozen for several seconds, and CPU utilization was 100%. Then I hear the sound, but the image loses a frames, it is also fast. In the VLC video is correct, but there is no sound.
While watching the video clip I decided to copy it to a flash stick. File size is 1.17 GiB. After copying approximately 900 MB, the copy process stopped, MediaPlayer crashed. Tracker has been blocked. I could not kill it and restart.
After a few hours of using Haiku, when I want to listen music, or watch movie, I have no sound! After boot sound works good. Restart of Media Services in Media preflet do not help.
I do not know from when this error occurs. Over the last few days I use Haiku many hours a day. That is probably why I notice this.
I've attached screenshot of Midnight Commander running in Terminal (in Haiku hrev45432) that shows these two problems:
a) the text rendering seems to be shifted up by 1-2 pixels, most noticeable on the semigraphics
b) it's incorrectly blended in these overlapping areas
On a blank workspace, open a Tracker window and then another program. Close the other program using Alt + W. The Tracker window should receive the focus, but it doesn't. hrev45413 gcc4hybrid.
From this discussion I wonder if instead of the desktop being avoided, all Tracker windows are being avoided, instead.
