Ticket #11166 (Regression: all mouse buttons detected as RMB) created

Wed, 2014-08-27 20:31

Might be a fluke in the recent refactorings:

  • in any Tracker window (Desktop included), the left mouse button opens the contextual menu, just like clicking the right mouse button would. So no way to double-click any more e.g.
  • oddly, the "Mouse" preflet is affected too, with regard to the visual feedback: only the digit "2" is ever highlighted; maybe it shares code with Tracker ?
  • apps e.g. WebPositive are not affected: the RMB brings up the menu, the LMB selects text. No problem.

Ticket #11164 (Request Restore of .tar.xz Archives for Nightly Images) closed

Wed, 2014-08-27 05:37
no change required:

The reason IIRC is that since introduction of package managment everything is already in compressed packages. XZ has therefore lost it's advantage of better compression compared to ZIP. Since ZIP is widely used, esp. on Windows, and to save considerable amounts of hosting storage, the XZ-compressed images were retired.

Ticket #11165 (Add date to Source Activity) created

Tue, 2014-08-26 22:27

The website does not show the date of the latest souirce activity. adding a date before the change listing would insure that a casual visitor does not think these are old changes.

Ticket #11164 (Request Restore of .tar.xz Archives for Nightly Images) created

Tue, 2014-08-26 21:44

With the move of the Nightly Images, in particular the Recommended ones, from ​ to ​, we have lost the .tar.xz archive flavor.

Any chance of getting this restored? This was/is my preferred format and I can't imagine I'm the only one.

If not, I'd love to hear the background as to why.

Thanks for your time,

Ticket #11163 (Audio/Video out of sync with some .ogv files) created

Tue, 2014-08-26 17:10

This is hrev47733.

Some .ogv files show non-snc audio/video, e.g. in ​mmu_man's screen-capture [40 MiB] the audio is about 35 secs late when played with MediaPlayer.

Other .ogv do not show this, e.g. ​Bug Bunny trailers.

Might be the different encodings:
RMLL: 15 fps, 22.050 kHz, 90 kbps
Bunny: 25 fps, 48 kHz, 80 kbps

Ticket #11162 (User Guide info boxes show too small a font) created

Tue, 2014-08-26 15:29

This is hrev47733.

The user guide shows info boxes with too small a font (e.g. ​Aplications).

As puckipedia pointed out on IRC, the font-size:0.9em is applied twice. To fix, replace in line 171 of Haiku-doc.css:

#content div {


#content>div {

I think this change has to be made at the online tool.

Ticket #11161 (Nightly builds no longer recognize my iprowifi2200 wireless card.) created

Tue, 2014-08-26 03:26

The last build that worked was 46632. Running does not install the driver. I've tried to expand ipw2200-fw-3.1.tgz but, alas, it resides in as read-only folder. And I have tried to to copy the files:


from R1-Alpha4.1 to the /firmware/iprowifi2200/

folder in Haiku 47380 nightly. Of course they cannot be copied to a read-only folder.
I have attached a text file with the output of ifconfig and listdev and listimage. I hope this will help correct the problem.

Ticket #11159 (Replace binary config file by plain text config file) closed

Mon, 2014-08-25 20:09

Those are generally flattened BMessages, which can be dumped via the 'message' command.

Ticket #11159 (Replace binary config file by plain text config file) created

Mon, 2014-08-25 19:41

In latest Haiku release (nightly) most of config files are a species of binary format,
(for example ~/config/settings/ScreenSaver_settings).

As haiku is not BeOS, and as it is free and opensource, why not having all config files in plain text?

It will be more readable, parsable for shell script, and for other uses (tweak).

note : For R1 with legacy BeOS support this cannot be an easy task.
But it can be done for R2 (BeOS will then be run in emulation mode, and some translation of files can be done).

Ticket #11156 (graphics driver blues) created

Mon, 2014-08-25 10:51

hrev47729, real hardware

Integrated intel graphics 83G965

Haiku won't boot even in VESA mode. Forcing the resolution to 1024*768*16bpp started Haiku ok (boot screen+icons look ok). On desktop however, the offset of screen was wrong so that the display started from the center part of the screen and continued to other side.

Maybe somebody could fix the offset for the card? All other gfx modes I tested resulted in garbage.

Ticket #11155 (WebPositive package missing from repositories.) created

Mon, 2014-08-25 06:51

This problem was introduced in hrev47677.

​ (WebPositive is available)

​ (WebPositive is not in the repos anymore!)

Only the x86_gcc2 repo is affected. I think this is because olta disabled the WebPositive package for gcc2 (which is right, it should be used only on the hybrid side) to fix a warning when building haiku.
