Ticket #13081 (Can only run any program a limited number of times before hanging) created

Wed, 2016-11-16 02:12

If you repeatedly run a program, whether via system() or load_image(), you only get a few hundred runs before the program hangs. Or rather, it seems the child program hangs in relocate_image while it is being loaded, before it's main thread starts.

See the attached stress test program example (redirect standard output to a file to make it more readable). It repeatedly runs /bin/date, with a pause between iterations. Expect to get less than 1000 runs.

This may explain why Haiku gets stuck if left running long enough.

Tested in hrev50678, also affects earlier versions.

Ticket #13076 (Bootman does not work with GPT drives) created

Mon, 2016-11-14 21:21

I switched one of my drives to GPT (let's stop using the messy legacy MBR...). Since I want to run multiple Haiku installs, I tried to put Bootman on the disk.

The installation went without errors, except the menu will not show up. Instead bootman will exit and my BIOS will boot the next hard drive. No error is printed.

Using the same disk with writembr works fine, but of course I can boot only one single partition then.

It would be nice to at least warn during Bootman install. It would be even better to make this work.

pkgman install will fail with "no error" message if trying to use it with no network interface connected. A more explicit error message is needed.

Ticket #13072 (Large X screen resolution results in screen scanline artefacts) closed

Fri, 2016-11-11 13:24

Since the problems go away when triggering a redraw of the VirtualBox window on the host (confirmed via IRC), it's not Haiku's fault, and should be filed at VirtualBox instead.

Ticket #13072 (Large X screen resolution results in screen scanline artefacts) created

Fri, 2016-11-11 12:12

Tested in virtualbox by jessicah and myself with similar result, VESA.


  • Smaller windows and objects (icons, cursor, menus, widgets): it seems that moving them towards the centre of the screen causes the display issues to appear.
  • Larger windows/objects (background image), seem fine.
  • Also shows during boot progress icons.


  • Have a 4K-based X-screen resolution: i.e., 3840x1080, 3840x2160.
  • Not yet tested on physical hardware, can someone help us here?

Ticket #13071 (Popup windows at user guide site don't open) created

Fri, 2016-11-11 09:00

This is hrev50675.

Go to the ​user guide online tool (you'll need write permissions there), and do a "Block Edit" of a page. If you then click on a block, it should open in a popup window to edit it. It doesn't.

On the first click, I see this in Web+'s script console:

MESSAGE ReferenceError: Can't find variable: base_url

Every further click, it's:

MESSAGE TypeError: null is not an object (evaluating 'edit_window.focus')

Ticket #11199 (Web+ Bookmarks Bar not available) closed

Thu, 2016-11-10 17:10

Fixed with hrev50675. Note: the bookmarks aren't updated when doing a "pkgman update". You need to do a clean install. Alternatively, get the ​optional package and unpack in ~/config/settings/WebPositive/.
