Latest Bugs & Tasks
The automatic management of the application menu has been added for convenience. It seemed most people like such an automatism, though the debate on whether to add application categories was somewhat undecided. In principle the current implementation can support both strategies (but lacking a standard set of categories and an actual categorization of/in the packages there's no choice ATM).
It also supports the old BeOS way of manual managment. To switch to that, all you have to do is: 1. open "/boot/home/config/settings/deskbar". 2. Create a link pointing to "menu" in the same directory and name it "menu_entries". 3. Enjoy!
Back in BeOS and the beginning of Haiku i can create my own folder hirachy into the application menu. Past the menu is a virtual thing, this does not match any more.
Yes i can create folders into the application menu and i can create sublinks into it, but all programs i install use directly the application main folder.
For some months i get a copy of DiscoverHaiu included many applications, i open the application menu and shocked about a list of appls from my screen top to my screen bottom and needed scrolling to see all.
People who are new at haiku see here only many names without to know what programs is for that kind of work (office, media, system, graphic, cd - dvd...).
I wish to get this functionality back into Haiku to get more order into the program variety
Sorry for bad english, i hope you understand ;-)
It's probably the same issue I reported as #12498.
Haiku revision 49600 and earlier
DE: Nachdem ich haiku revision 49600 installiert habe (gleiches Problem bei vorheriger Version) lief alles ohne Probleme. Nach ein paar Tagen/Wochen weiss nicht mehr genau fing es an das ich beim Systemstart lange Zeit einen schwarzen Bildschirm (bis zu 5 Minuten lang) habe bevor die Booticons angezeigt werden. Ich habe an der Hardware und externen Geräten nichts geändert oder hinzugenommen.
UK: After I installed haiku revision 49600 (same problem with previous version) everything ran without problems. After a few days / weeks do not remember exactly it began I at startup for a long time a black screen (up to 5 minutes) before the boat had icons are displayed. I have the hardware and external devices changed or added taken nothing.
At the last Haiku nightly is download and installed (last hrev49600) all new textfiles are write protected.
I does not can use as license "freeware", this is some times a problem if you want to make a package of an old beos app for a repository. This are often licenses as "freeware".
Will be fine then i can add this license in a hpkg file.
launch a terminal
type a command
The first keypress is lost. Every keypress after that works as expected.
Processor: intel p4 2.80 GHz
Keyboard : PS/2
This issue has been introduced with the launch daemon and may depend on the speed of the hardware. it is 100% reproducable on my computer.
User ethe on IRC, who used a recent nightly around hrev49900 ran into a kernel crash.
He wasn't able to create an account in Trac due to this "Warning: Username ethe doesn't match local naming policy." So I'm filing it on his behalf.
Not sure if the crash is happening in VESA driver or BIOS, so i'm setting Component to Drivers for now.
Installing either the .fon font from https://github.com/sphere-group/sgi_screen or http://sabi.net/nriley/software/screen/ScreenBold.ttf to ~/config/non-packaged/data/fonts, and then selecting the font from the settigns menu in Terminal, the application crashes.
I have used the TTF and fon versions on Windows and OS X in the past, although I am not sure if they malformed in some way or not.
After i update Haiku after BeGeistert 029 i have gotten KDL that i can't recover from with out a reboot.
It happens when Web+ been running at least for 18hours and i go to the webpage for Transmission, that i always have in an open tab.
There i choose "Add torrent", choose the .torrent, tick the box for "Auto Start". Some time it crashes there or when i press "OK".
This crash occurred, using hrev49662, just after the CDs tracks had been identified, and as the first track was starting to be ripped.
