Latest Bugs & Tasks
The documentation for makefile-engine opens in a text editor, not the web browser, because it is missing the HTML document level tags.
The file is haiku/docs/makefile-engine.html I'll append a patch shortly.
The header file at /system/develop/headers/glib-2.0/glib.h contains inclusions which cannot be found by default. Paths inside refer to <glib/*.h> when they should refer to <glib-2.0/*.h>
We repeatedly asked people complaining about this to provide examples of software that can't be installed anymore. There was 1 single bug report as a result of our repeated requests, and we helped fix the affected software (it was yab).
I should also add that BeOS software would be hardcoded to use /boot/beos, not /boot/system, so whatever happens in /boot/system will not change anything. This means we already are out of the way of "old hardcoded software". Please reopen this bug only if you have software that is broken because of this problem (rumors that "other people said..." won't work, sorry).
I think it is a good idea to let users to choose where to install their packages and config files besides the default directory. This method could solve the problems of some hard coded old softwares, and give users the right to make choice.
If I turn off my monitor and turn it on again, my USB devices such as keyboard & mouse end up suffering from severe USB stall problems.
Fixed in hrev49162.
Ticket #9240 (With font size 18 the Debugger shot shows cut-off text in the menu and in ...) reopened
Doesn't work with font size greater than 20.
Fixed in hrev49160.
This is hrev49149.
I don't know if it's specific to the Playground test app, or a general problem when drawing rounded rects. See the attached capture, rects are OK, rounded ones aren't.
FIling under "Applications" (there's no "Playground"), feel free to re-categorize if it turns out to be system wide (app_server?).
Fixed in hrev49158.
With PDF writer:
1) Select "Printer..." from an app menu.
2) In "Print Setup" press "Paper setup" button.
3) Open "Fonts..." or "Advanced..."
4) Close the "page setup" window with Fonts or Advanced open
There is a crash.
Applied by hamishm in hrev49149.
Problems with building third-party software aren't tracked here. Please use the HaikuPorts bug tracker or ask on the HaikuPorts development mailing list.
Preamble: Downloaded the master files from https://github.com/mmlr/qemu-haiku and installed glib2-x86 & glib2-x86-devel from HaikuDepot. Confirmed that they are installed in system/lib/x86 and used 'setarch x86' before attempting anything.
Problem: Message when trying to do a ./configure is:
ERROR: glib-2.12 gthread-2.0 is required to compile QEMU
Is this looking for a specific version of glib, or is something else wrong here?
- The symptom of the problem with zip is normal. That's the standard behaviour of zip without the option -y.
- The unzip problem should be fixed in hrev49146.
