[haiku-development] [RFC] Getting rid of the tabs in Terminal, using Stack Tile instead (gus knight)

Wed, 2015-07-29 11:45
Hi all, Currently, the Terminal app's code is a really big mess. Part of the reason for this is because of the way the tabs/sessions are managed. Cleaning it up is possible, but I think the better solution would be to scrap the BTabView altogether and switch to using Stack Tile for the tabs instead. That way, when you hit New tab in the menu, it opens a new window and attaches it to the current stack. Thoughts? Comments? Objections? ...

[haiku-development] Static object Destructor (Pete Goodeve)

Wed, 2015-07-29 11:45
I think this is appropriate to post here. If not, I apologise... I decided to take a crack at fixing up Sequitur for Haiku. I downloaded the source from HaikuArchives, and as Adrien (I guess?) said it compiles and sort of runs, with some vital features not working yet. The first thing I wanted to look at was annoying crash when one quits Sequitur. Turn out that this is due to a static object that has a destructor called on quitting.

[haiku-development] kill vs. killall (gus knight)

Wed, 2015-07-29 11:45
Hi, BeOS R5 had the functionality that the kill shell command could kill applications by name. Rene Gollent implemented this by patching Bash's builtin kill; however, this patch is extremely buggy: * Sometimes kill processname doesn't do anything, and will insist the process doesn't exist, even when ProcessController sees the process and can kill it just fine * On x86_64 Haiku (I haven't seen this on x86_32 Haiku -- yet), ...

[haiku-development] Kernel C++ RTTI (A. D. Sharpe)

Wed, 2015-07-29 11:45
Hello all, Is there anyone who's intimately familiar with the kernel that wouldn't mind speaking to me off-list about the kernel? I have questions about the transition from the old NewOS codebase into a cpp kernel how RTTI was handled. For some reason, I can't seem to find what I'm looking for while reading the source. I'm not sure if I'm even still on this mailing list, so please CC me in your reply, if you reply to the list. Thanks in advance! ...

Howdy * I would just like to make it known that the current build of Pe has developed a binary compatibility issue centered around key value definitions or bindings. Simply recompiling Pe solves the issue, so the version in the depot needs to be updated or the system change that happened needs to be reverted (though I don't know what change it was, the symptom should make it quite clear). ...
