[haiku-development] Some problems updating...

Wed, 2016-02-03 11:45
Hi, Not sure what happened but I thought I'd note it. I decided it was finally time to update my May 2015 system, so I followed the instructions on the website -- added the current repositories to pkgman, then did pkgman update. It looked like it completed (didn't notice any errors) and I rebooted. It came back up with my old revision! Remembering some recent email (?) ...

[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 ( ). ...
