Any suggestion on how to init sub-devices when I register them, instead of when they are used (like cat /dev/ .. / node)? I want them to handle ACPI events always. /Fredrik Holmqvist, TQH ...

Closing a bug as invalid after less than a day with little or no regard to the thoughts of the bug reporter comes off as callous and is unproductive to the goal of creating the best operating system possible. In this case we have probably scared away a potential developer. ...

Unfortunately, there doesn't appear to be any public way to do this so we are going to have to provide one. I simply faked it on Paladin by measuring and hardcoding the values used by the default decorator. BWindow however does provides this information from the private BWindow::_GetDecoratorSize() method. This needs to be made public if we expect zoom to be implemented seriously by third party apps. ...

Hi there, I had a look at the new Network preferences application in order to fix a few UI glitches. I'm a bit surprised by its design, to say the least: it seems to use add-ons for no good reason, or in other words, the add-on interface is so badly designed that it doesn't really make any sense. ...

So you clone from Haiku? Does cloning work from the host? Have you tried to connect via ssh, or a browser to see if that's any different? Wasn't there a bug with the recent libnetwork refactoring that was closed today? It sounds like it could be related. If I pieced this together correctly, it would help to try again with a newer nightly. That bug was in BNetworkInterfaceAddress, which is used only by the libbnetapi, I doubt git would be affected. ...
