Latest Bugs & Tasks
If I initially create a tab and leave the view empty (passing NULL as the first parameter of AddTab) and later decide to add the view (by calling the SetView funtion of BTab), the view is not shown in Haiku. This does work in BeOS R5.
I added a small test case in this ticket which shows the problem.
In BeOS R5, the content of the tab shows a white background with the text "Hello World!" printed in it. In Haiku, the content stays empty (gray background color).
Tested with Haiku hrev49184.
You can specify in the resource rdef: resource("BEOS:default_shortcut") "A";
I royally screwed up networking while trying to get a headless Raspberry Pi working. I think it may have something to do with misuse of SSH. Anyhow, that's when the fun began.
I downloaded the latest nightly and dd'ed it to a stick, booted and installed it to the HDD. Still no wifi. In short, I have wifi on the stick, but not on the HDD. So to do a daily build I decided to boot via the USB stick, switch to the HDD partition with the sources on it and build, but this fails completely. I can update git sources, and the build starts but then crashes almost immediately.
Sometimes I get a segment violation, usually vfork: out of memory. (N.B. I have tons of VM set but the system will only use 80MiB or so when booted from a small USB partition.)
If anyone knows how to manually regenerate SSH (and other) keys, this may fix the issue. At least then I can boot off the HDD with wifi again.
I've put add-on into the /boot/home/config/non-packaged/add-ons/Tracker directory. I named it with dash and letter postfix, to make Tracker create keyboard shortcut for it, but Tracker seems to ignore it. That worked long time ago (both on BeOS and Haiku).
should make Tracker add menu item "DoTheTrick" with shortcut [cmd][opt]A. It does add menu item, but without a keyboard shortcut.
I just tried nightly (after a looong time) inside virtualbox to try to rebuild my tiny apps on Haiku and noticed different behaviour than the one described in BeBook (https://www.haiku-os.org/legacy-docs/bebook/TheTracker_AddOnProtocol.html#process_refs).
I may be doing something wrong, but it looks like the Tracker passes wrong entry_ref to the add-on application. Instead of passing entry_ref to the directory, i'm getting entry_ref to the selected file.
I managed to workaround that by using BEntry.IsFile() and getting parent directory before continuing, but that was not needed before.
Was that intentionally changed without changing header files (first parameter to process_refs is called directory in header files)?
Fixed in hrev49219.
The mail notifications from Haiku main web site are being sent with a lot of delay. I sometimes receive notifications for a new post or forum topic several days after it was posted.
Some users also reported problems with resetting Trac passwords, where the confirmation mail would never reach them.
Fixed in hrev49218.
Fixed in hrev49217.
When playing a HTML5 video from YouTube under Webpoitive, clicking on the 'Full screen' icon plays a higher-res version of the video if one is available but it doesn't make the video playback fullscreen as would happen under a Linux-based browser.
Also, the other YT HTML5 video control icons don't work properly. When you click on them their menu flashes up for a instant before closing again. This happens too fast for you to be able to choose an item from the menu.
As shown in the following picture
there is a layout problem with the Bus information tab of Devices app. The problem is very old and there is probably a ticket for it but I could not find it.
I created a workaround to fix this problem. It fixes also the same problem with the SCSI Information, except "Device name" line.
I added also some SCSI codes and some missing tranlations.
Could not open "BeIDE" (Missing symbol: FSGetTrashDir__FP10BDirectoryl).
I believe this has something to do with the changes to the Trash Bin made for the purpose of "making it multi-user ready" (although it beggars belief that this code would be included in a pre-Beta - or in fact any version below R2 - since BeOS itself was always single-user).
StyledEdit should show the navigator menu when the user clicks on the status bar as Tracker, ShowImage, Pe.
Does the mesa port support the GLES2 API?
If not, what needs to be donte to support it?
Note: today there was a commit on mesa master that makes it build with GLES1 & GLES2 support enabled by default.
It could be nice to add (maybe in the new network preferences) a gui to manage network shares (like favorites), with an option to add a entry to the mount menu. This could be an elegant way to integrate this.
