Latest Bugs & Tasks
Nice, doesn't crash anymore! Closing as fixed.
In a video of a blind walkthrough a guy is trying to move windows by their menu bars. I think it might be quite handy.
Thanks for the feedback.
Mount bfs partition

after file copy complete unmount bfs partition
Ok, I think fixing issues for old version of pages is not that useful, so closing this.
i tried the nightly build http://cgit.haiku-os.org/haiku/tag/?id=hrev49717 , x86 GCC 2 Hybrid; checksums were OK. The anyboot image was dd to a usb stick and an ide hdd (120 GB). The usb drive and the hdd ran into kernel debugging land during boot, with different settings in the HAIKU boot manager. Booting from CD with the corresponding .iso didn't get that far (black screen, only one line of serial debug after hitting "continue boot"). The serial output for hdd and CD (with standard boot settings) will be appended.
Duplicate of 11389, and both may be solved by updating our ffmpeg to a more recent version.
The website is gone.
Same as 9378.
This is intended behavior, if the current tab is showing the home page, it is assumed that it is not important and can be replaced. If it is showing some other page, it is possibly important and cannot be replaced, so a new tab is open. But this is a bit confusing.
Fixed in https://github.com/haiku/webkit/commit/3fbe7bfc66b8ad679b750a83dd325221f3348e2d (will be part of the next Web+ release).
(This is the compile-side counterpart to #12427.)
On Haiku, executables are position-independent by default. However asking gcc (4.8.5) to build a non-position-independent executable with (for instance) the -fno-pie flag fails with an error message like
/boot/system/(...)/bin/ld: /tmp//ccxbCP1i.o: relocation R_X86_64_32 against `.rodata' can not be used when making a shared object; recompile with -fPIC /tmp//ccxbCP1i.o: error adding symbols: Bad value collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status
This is because gcc is configured to always pass either the -r or -shared flag to the linker, and there is no easy way to override this. But not everything is relocatable or a shared object, and if the user specifically requests something different, that request should be honoured.
Consequently apps like GNU Emacs that rely on support for fixed-position executables cannot be built on Haiku right now.
I'd like to contribute to the Canadian English localization, but every time I click on "Suggest" to suggest a translation Pootle briefly displays "Unknown error" at the bottom of the screen and advances to the next string, throwing my work away.
Trying a different Web browser didn't help. Have I missed a step somewhere or is there a problem with the website?
This is hrev49694.
I recently saw a video of a blind walkthrough, i.e. someone records their experience using Haiku wihthout reading up on anything about it before. When coming to the HaikuDepot (finally... it's a long video, though I recommend watching it to see a fresh perspective), the user got an empty list after choosing the "Games" category.
I wondered what was going on there, until I remembered the "Show | Only featured packages". I normally always enter a search term, which disables that option...
How about we disable that option when a category is chosen (just like when you enter a search term)?
And: featured packages could have a yellow star in a column in front of the icon. Clicking onto that column's header could sort the featured packges to the top (and keep the current sorting order within).
Fixed in hrev49717. Sorry for the delay.
Fixed in hrev49716
