[haiku-development] Re: BBufferGroup questions for future work (Jérôme Duval)

Thu, 2015-04-16 21:45
2015-04-07 20:50 GMT+02:00 Dario Casalinuovo b.vitruvio@xxxxxxxxx: I don't have much experience with this code, I'll to try to answer with my understanding. A TODO in BBufferGroup #110 states that we should avoid to add more than one BBuffer::ID() to each group, but in SharedBufferList there's a function named _RequestBuffersInOtherGroups that find in the current list buffers with the same ID. i've guessed that it's a workaround and should be removed. ...

2015-04-06 23:14 GMT+02:00 Axel Dörfler axeld@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx: just a lot of boring work to update all their drivers, and make sure our compability kludges still apply, and work. On the one hand the ethernet compatibility layer can easily be updated, the wireless part on the other hand is a lot more impacted at least. The API changes impacted some wireless drivers more than others. This probably won't go without regressions. ...

[haiku-development] BBufferGroup questions for future work (Dario Casalinuovo)

Thu, 2015-04-16 00:45
Hello, while working to fix #6188 i tried to begin a cleanup of the whole management, at least i tried to fix TODOs. Actually i'm just preserving this code to submit in future a complete cleanup and i hope you can make things a bit more clear : A TODO in BBufferGroup #110 states that we should avoid to add more than one BBuffer::ID() to each group, but in SharedBufferList there's a function named _RequestBuffersInOtherGroups that find in the current list buffers with the same ID. i've guessed that it's a workaround and should be removed. ...

from Ithamar Adema: Is there any other reason then time/effort that we're tracking FreeBSD 9.x instead of 10.x for the network driver compatibility layer? There's some network driver support in 10.x that isn't back ported to 9.x, and I would prefer to simply update the BSD compatibility instead of starting to merge patches from 10.x into our 9.x base... Anyway, just wondering if someone tried that already and found some ...

We currently use system headers and libraries for the build tools, and have no API abstraction. We would need to use a similar mechanism there that the fs-shell is using already. ...

[haiku-development] Event/EventQueue madness (Augustin Cavalier)

Tue, 2015-04-14 15:45
Hi all (but mostly aimed at Stephan and Ingo), Currently, there are (at least) two versions of Event and EventQueue in-tree -- one for MediaPlayer [1] and one for the Registrar [2]. At first glance these appear to be identical aside from coding style cleanups, but after some examination it appears that these classes have diverged significantly enough (void Execute instead of bool Do, locking, timing, etc.) that it's not possible for someone who doesn't intricately understand how these classes are supposed to operate to reconcile them. ...

I'm displeased if my message wasn't clear, i thought that i was expressing clearly the concept, i'll be more short and coincided next time going directly to the point. I wondered what you were talking about. But I guess you were just mixing up ports with application loopers (the latter get the broadcasts, and only accept messages). I was talking about looper being based on ports so there's potential of ...
