Ticket #12689 ([Feature lack] On Win 7 I am able to choose the audio output as audio ...) created

Thu, 2016-03-17 00:25

About 3 years ago I opened this ticket: #9286;
#9286 was meant as enhancement.

However, since in the meantime I installed Windows 7 on my main computer, I've found the following behavior (this ticket is about a specific lack on my system; the #9286, instead, is about an improvement on systems which doesn't provide this hardware feature):

On my system I have an HDA integrated sound card, and on Windows 7 I am able to choose, as audio input in the audio preferences, the "stereo mix" - I can record, as audio stream, everything that is sent to the audio output, routed to the audio input - this feature is available on Win 7: ​ -
but on Haiku I'm not able to choose an equivalent of "stereo mix" as audio source: there's not any option available inside Media Preferences.

hrev50141 and also older versions.

Ticket #12688 (Attempting to restore a file from the Trash doesn't cause any action, if ...) created

Tue, 2016-03-15 23:58

Well: make a file on the Desktop or in any other folder (eg a "New text file") then move this file to the trash. Then, on the Desktop, make again a "New text file". Then go to the trash and click "restore" on the trashed file: nothing will happen. At least would be ok to show an alert where to ask if you want to replace the file, or copy the file with another name (this, eg, will happen if you make a two text files in a folder: the second one will be named "New text file copy") or again, at least, dislaying an error message.

Ticket #12687 (Implement a sort of type-ahead filtering for the Desktop) created

Tue, 2016-03-15 23:40

In the Tracker's settings I have selected "Enable type-ahead filtering"; this option works as expected in any open folder. However, regardless of the fact that this option is checked or not, on the Desktop, typing a letter to quickly find the corresponding icon, this doesn't work as happen on the Desktop of other operating systems.

Let's see the example showed in the attached video: for test, I created some files which start with the "T" letter; if I click the "T" letter on my keyboard, firstly will be selected the icon of the Trash, then the icon which starts with the "L" letter; then, no other action will occur: none of other files which starts with "T" will be selected. Then, to start again this "search", I have to select any icon on the Desktop: otherwise, this "search" will not work again.

Well, I know that the type-ahead filtering feature of the Tracker works with a different concept (it will only shows the corresponding results in the window), but would be nice, at least to fix/implement something on functional also on the Desktop.

Ticket #12686 (printf's converted to TRACE in SoundPlayNode.cpp) created

Tue, 2016-03-15 21:48

It had some printf's what made the console audio players (like cmus) unusable, because it threw the debug log into the terminal. So i just converted them to TRACE.
Thanks for PulkoMandy and Barrett for help.

Ticket #12685 (Tracker: column header visible in Icon View) created

Sun, 2016-03-13 21:31

I just created a new partition and copied some data here, and now i have column header in icon view, what supposed to be hidden in this mode.
I tried to revert back to list-view, and back to icon view, but it doesn't fix it.
The column header is not a graphics bug, i can actually press them to change the ordering, and i see the small triangle changing, but nothing happens in the file-view area.

It is on the latest nightly gcc2h ( hrev50147 ), for the record i'm uing big font size, 16 pt, almost everywhere, the font is Overpass from HaikuPorts.
I tried some old BeOS R4.5-5 programs, but not on this drive, so it think it is not because some strange attributum is written to this folder.
Tested, all the subfolders affected, but not my system drive.

Let me know, hop can i provide more information.

Ticket #12683 ([BTabView] bottom border is missing with plain font size > 12) created

Sun, 2016-03-13 11:24


This is an old regression, about a year old or so.

Setting plain font size to 13 or greater makes bottom tab border disappear.

Ticket #12679 (Cortex's Transport window: the start button doesn't work at the first ...) created

Sat, 2016-03-12 03:42


I noticed that, when I play with Cortex (eg: connecting an audio node - MediaPlayer or any other audio node from any media app - to a vst) and then I click on "start" in the Transport window, I can't hear any audio output: I have to click stop and then start again.

However, I can exclude a latency issue: on my system I have a very low audio latency: 9 ms (thanks to Pete Goodeve: some time ago he sent me a modified HDA driver provided with a setting file where I can set the audio buffer size).

Ticket #12678 (XRS (an old BeOS app) will crash when attempt to export a song as wave ...) created

Sat, 2016-03-12 00:35

XRS v1.13 unofficial beta2 (the zip file is available here )
on Haiku hrev50141 - but the same behaviour occurred on older nightlies builds: this specific issue occurs at least since Haiku Alpha 4.1, IIRC.

When you attempt to export a song as wave file "File" menu > "Export as WAVE" XRS will crash. IIRC on the early alpha releases of Haiku (at least Alpha 2) this crash didn't occurred.

I attach the debug report.

Ticket #12677 (Haiku is now slow to boot (it hangs for a while at the disk icon)) created

Fri, 2016-03-11 22:23


Are passed about 5 weeks since the first time that I noticed this issue.
I recently back on Haiku (since hrev50067); the last time that I run Haiku was about one year ago.

Well, since hrev50067 Haiku take a long time (compared to the past) to boot: it hangs for about 12 - 13 seconds at the disk icon. I tried an old hrev (hrev49662) and the boot time was fast as usual.

I reported this issue firstly in #12258
You can see my comment here: ticket:12258#comment:38
but the launch_daemon is not the culprit (launch_daemon is related to the rocket icon, and the issue, for me, is related to the disk icon)

Then the other guys (eg Humdinger here ticket:12258#comment:41) in such ticket told me that the culprit could be #12634 (the syslog is continuously flooded with the same messages - see also #12415)

I also tried to cleaning the old "state" directories in /system/packages/administrative because when this folder grows, could cause a slow boot.

Today, since I was thinking that the culprit would be #12415 I also uninstalled my optical drive (and disabled the SATA port in the BIOS): so now I no longer experienced the issue with the syslog which keeps growing, but the boot time is still slow.

Now, since I made the described workaround (uninstalled the optical drive) the syslog is no longer spammed and I attach the new clean version.
