Debugger: Adjust VariablesView for new expression API.

Source Activity - Sat, 2014-11-22 04:31
- Simplify handling of expression nodes. For primitive results, we now construct a Variable object that represents the expression result, and then add that as we would any other local variable. This simplifies handling, and also allows saving/restoration of their view state to be handled the same as other nodes. Complex expression results aren't yet handled properly, pending some further work in progress on the evaluator. - Simplify handling of expression nodes.

Ticket #11502 (Package management: implement the ability to write data out of read only ...) created

Latest Bugs & Tasks - Sat, 2014-11-22 03:42

Well, currently when we install a package, the only way to write data out of the read only directories, atm, is to rely on post_install scripts.
In this page https://dev.haiku-os.org/wiki/PackageManagement/TODO I've read that someday the package system will get rid of these post_install scripts, and I agree: would be a better and more clean way achieve this ability (write data out of read only directories) in the structure of HPKG's files. There is some task about?
As reference I have seen this similar ticket #10025 which is about Desktop symlinks (in that ticket i read about "allow the desktop directory to be replaced with a virtual directory") , but would be also useful (for those which, eg like TTcoder, prepare packages/OEM installations for customers) implementing this ability for any other directory. Eg, to mention some of these, to "/boot/home/config/settings/Tracker/Tracker New Templates." or "/boot/home/config/settings/boot/launch"
I also do something similar as TTcoder does, since I work in IT support (and I'm waiting for Haiku R1B1 to start to promote a little bit more this nice OS).
For some OEM installations, there would be the necessity to supply everything as default, for some particular situations and customers, to provide them a system which is ready to use, also in terms of applications, settings and behaviour.

In anyway i set this ticket as low priority, since for now the post_install scripts are able to do the job.

Ticket #11501 ([app_server] Crash while destroying region) created

Latest Bugs & Tasks - Sat, 2014-11-22 00:42

Just experienced a crash out of the blue that I haven't seen before, and can't find an existing ticket for. Nothing too exciting was going on per se, just a terminal with a lot of scrolling text due to a build, which led to the crash in the attached report. This was on hrev48359.

The old preflet used its own settings class, the new preflet extends on that, and net_server has its own version of it (with unused _Save ...

[haiku-development] Saving network settings (Adrien Destugues)

Development mailing list - Fri, 2014-11-21 23:45
Hi, The network preferences was replaced in october with a new and nicer one which is more extensible with add-ons support and other nice features. However while doing so I failed to notice that there was one rather important thing missing: the interface settings are not saved to disk. This was left open when the new preflet was written back in 2011: ...

multi architecture boot images are possible but not in the manner suggested.... at least the suggested manner is not possible i n a remotely sane manner If at all.... openstep had combined boot images for some architectures.... i think sparc 68k and x86 by cleverly arranging the bootloaders so the correct one would run on each architecture.... the kernels would have been compiled separately of course though.
