Latest Bugs & Tasks
I tried installing the latest nightly build. This was not possible because the formatting of the partition failed. It fails with a general error.
The stable build (rev1alpha4-44702) works like a charm.
After investigation i found that hrev46226 is the last one that works for me, hrev46239 and later fail.
Please see the attached output.
In both cases (46226 and 46239) the output was created by booting from usb and after haiku was started i ran the installer.
Please let me know if you need additional information.
It would be userfriendly if there would be a preferences app for the ~/config/settings/kernel/drivers/kernel config file.
I suggest to add a "Use fail safe video mode" checkbox to the Screen preferences.
This would be useful if the user's video card does not working and need to boot always in safe video mode. It would be more userfriendly than change the kernel settings manually (and by default there is no fail_safe_video_mode option in the file).
Since PM some folders are not translated:
Using listattr there are no SYS:NAME attribute.
And also the default Deskbar's folders are not translated. However in the /boot/home/config/settings/deskbar/menu folder all are translated, but these are empty folders.
And I shall add SYS:NAME attribute to the /boot/home/config/* and the /boot/system/* folders too. Like for the apps, preferences, documentation, packages, non-packaged, etc.
Using hrev46362 nightly anyboot.
Thanks for the update!
Fixed in hrev46361.
Will dig into it after work, thanks for the testcase.
Tried downloading the latest revision of Haiku x86-64 and JAMing, but it crashed right after starting. I figured, "Ok, lets delete everything and start over". Upon doing so, the same problem. JAM doesn't work. Or crashes. Or something.
I ran into a similar non-build situation in Haiku x86-64, but it was finally resolved with a newer version of Haiku x86-64, pulled from Haiku Files.
Should I try that first or does someone have some idea how to diagnose this particular issue?
"Save Report" does nothing, so far as I can tell (where is the "report" saved to?).
"Terminate" simply puts me back to the Terminal prompt with a blinking cursor.
I have not yet tried "Debug". Should I post an image of that?
At least with the current distcc package this no longer occurs. If another way to reproduce it is found, please reopen, but it should theoretically be fixed at this point.
Booting an image through pxe and remote_disk_server stop while looking for /bin/sh in the remote image.
I have not yet fully investigate what should be done. I will probably do some more work on that, but probably not before the end of the year.
At least, the netboot archive is probably not correctly configured to load packages from the remote image.
In the meantime, hints and guidelines are welcome.
Fixed in hrev46357.
My Lenovo x220 seems to load the iprowifi4965 driver, but no wireless networks appear in the list. Perhaps [8086:0085] is not a supported device, I don't believe it ever worked on this machine.
From the syslog, hrev46356:

With Haiku's nightly image hrev46353 (ISO flavor), i have a crash while scanning partitions (see attach
