[haiku-development] window server / compositor

Wed, 2016-02-03 11:45
Hi everyone, Thank you for keeping Haiku alive, I have always found BeOS/Haiku fascinating. I have been digging through the source but am having a hard time discovering how the desktop environment, window server, compositor, etc are handled. Could anyone please point me in the right direction? If I wanted to try to create an alternative desktop environment for Haiku, for example, using a tiling window management system, do you have any tips about what to investigate within the API and source tree? ...

[haiku-development] stpcpy and ACPI woes (waddlesplash)

Fri, 2016-01-29 13:45
The ACPICA build failed on GCC4 ( with the message exmisc.c:(.text+0x456): undefined reference to `stpcpy'. (It succeeds on GCC2.) Running a grep for stpcpy in that file returns nothing, running a grep -R stpcpy over the entire ACPI bus manager also returns nothing. Running a GitHub code search over all of ACPICA also returns nothing ( ). ...

You could copy the ShowImage executable and give each one a different application signature in the resources, then hey to those signatures. Or rename each copy of ShowImage and hey to the file names. If you're writing code, you could consult the BRoster to list the running ...
