Ticket #13141 (HaikuDepot - Add system requirement to HPKG packages) reopened

Mon, 2017-01-02 16:31

I have reopened the ticket, but I would still like to hear arguments why it's not enough to put the information on special requirements into the package description. What is to be gained by an additional field "system_requirements" which will, I assume, be a non-structured text field that'll be filled with arbitrary terms like "800x600, 2 cores > 2ghz, 1gb RAM...etc."?
If users look for an app, they'll see any requirements the author of the package deems important in the decription.

You must bear in mind that the programs available there do not have any packaging and therefore the system requirements are not available.

I don't understand this: all HPKG are packages and do include their system requirement (haiku version, dependencies).

Ticket #13147 (Submitting Repositories preflet and HaikuDepot change) created

Sun, 2017-01-01 22:50

I wrote a preflet for updating the repositories used by package management and am submitting it for consideration for inclusion with the Haiku image. HaikuDepot was also modified to add a menu item to open the preflet. My purpose for writing this is to make finding new software easier for new users and also provide a tool for power users to manage repository URLs.
This patch is an update to my Depots preflet available here:
​https://perelandra0x309.github.io/depots/
I have rename it to "Repositories" to remain consistant with wording used in the package kit code, and also updated some wording in HaikuDepot to use "repository" instead of "depot". Discussion on the topic seems to suggest many are used to using the word "repository" while "depot" seems more applicable to describing the actual HaikuDepot application itself.
I have made my best attempt at conforming to coding guidelines and freely give this code to Haiku for inclusion under your license.

Ticket #8293 (BNetworkAddress needs to check if there is an available IPv6 connection.) reopened

Sun, 2017-01-01 22:20

It's still not completely fixed; the attached test program has the following output:

got: [::1]:80
got: 127.0.0.1:80

There is no IPv6 address for anything but localhost.

Ticket #13146 (Makefile-engine does not generate catkeys) created

Sun, 2017-01-01 19:50

I have tried using make catkeys, but it keeps generating empty (30-something bytes) file.
collectcatkeys issues warnings when used with -w and I have discovered that there is grep -av '^#' missing after gcc preprocessing step. Other targets use that too, so I assume this is an oversight.

Simple patch attached.

Ticket #13141 (HaikuDepot - Add system requirement to HPKG packages) closed

Sun, 2017-01-01 18:55
no change required:

HPKGs already have a REQUIRED field for the needed Haiku version. I'll close the ticket then. Reopen, if I missed or misinterpreted something.

Ticket #13145 ([dvb] Write a driver for SAA713x chips) created

Sun, 2017-01-01 11:43

Chips are the saa7130hl, saa7131e, saa7133, saa7133hl, saa7134, saa7134hl & the saa1735hl.

Supported cards can be found here.

Unlike it's predecessor, this chip supports A/V decoding.

Ticket #13144 ([dvb] Write a driver for the saa7146 chip) created

Sun, 2017-01-01 11:16

The Philips SAA7146 chip is a no frills multimedia bridge to the PCI bus, which means it has no decoding ability (unlike most competing chip designs) and therefore requiring it to need an external decoder.

Drivers for other operating systems use highly modular designs in order to support the numerous card setups available.

A list of cards using the chip can be found here.
