Remove some traces sent to application stdout.

* This may be fine in media server where it lands in logs, but certainly
not when the code is run in applications.
* Helps with all media-related webkit tests.

More tweaks to the HTML related sniffing rules:

* MHTML: give a higher priority than HTML to improve detection results,
as MHTL is likely to contain HTML in the first chunk.
* HTML: scan the first 512 bytes to increase likeliness of finding a tag
* XHTML: don't try to identify on the dectype, this is not reliable and
missing from some documents. Recognize "

[haiku] GSOC-2014: "IPv6 Polish" [New Project Idea + Patch of code] (Sriharsha Karamchati)

Haiku Mailing List - Wed, 2014-04-23 08:45
Hi, I have attached a patch of code which was written using scapy (python). This code modifies the DSCP code values for specific packet in order to provide privileged services for them. I think this can be effectively used while probing, as when we send the packets across the network to scan the Operating Systems for ports, I think we can mark these packets separately by modifying the DSCP values so that they get higher preference in the network traffic and do net get lost, thereby ensuring higher probability of the specific packet reaching out to all the systems. Any suggestions/Ideas will be appreciated. ...

Ticket #10772 (HAIKU_BOOT_BOARD should be a configure option.) closed

Latest Bugs & Tasks - Wed, 2014-04-23 08:41
fixed:

Added the configure option (--target-board) in hrev47157.
It does not affect the build tools compilation yet, however.

Ticket #10774 (Debugger crashes while debugging a Qt app) created

Latest Bugs & Tasks - Wed, 2014-04-23 00:10

This is hrev47085. While debugging a Qt application (specifically, Designer; either by starting Debugger from the command line or by attaching to an already-running-not-crashed team), Debugger will repeatedly crash after doing normal tasks inside the Qt app (like opening and closing menus/dialogs).

I'm running Haiku inside a VirtualBox machine with Windows as the host OS.

Backtrace attached.

configure: allow setting HAIKU_BOOT_BOARD

configure: allow setting HAIKU_BOOT_BOARD

* Since this affects generated objects and needs a clean build anyway,
it is better set and fixed at configure time.
* It could also be used when building the cross compiler to set
appropriate options.

[haiku] Re: [GSOC2014] Haiku as a stand-alone UEFI app (Jonathan Schleifer)

Making the haiku kernel compatible with pure UEFI hardware could be a next step in the process. As far as I know, the TianoCore module for QEMU is also bios compatible, and most PC around still keep a bios compatibility. Just wanted to note that Apple machines don't have BIOS compatibility if booted ...

2014-03-16 20:55 GMT+01:00 Louis Feuvrier manny@xxxxxxxxxxxx: As stated by tqh, problems arise when upgrading the kernel. In fact, considering the kernel would be stored in the UEFI partition (a simple fat-formated partition,) a solution could be to mount this partition on the /boot/efi folder or any other (as linux does currently.) Funny thing is, that after you and I talked there was a discussion about grub, and it seems it understands BFS filesystem now. However the kernel is inside a package file I think, so it would need to know how to get to and load the kernel. ...

[haiku] [GSOC2014] Haiku as a stand-alone UEFI app (Louis Feuvrier)

Haiku Mailing List - Tue, 2014-04-22 19:45
Hey guys, I am Louis Feuvrier and I am interested in working on the UEFI bootloader for Haiku-os in the context of GSOC. I already introduced myself here[1] if you are interested. I discussed a bit with tqh regarding this matter, and the consensus currently seems to be a simple stand-alone UEFI app replicating the work done by the ia32 bios module. As most you must know, the linux kernel is bootable without the help of any bootloader on the UEFI platform. This archlinux forum post[2] casts light on ...

[haiku] New and updated EFI branch (Fredrik Holmqvist)

Haiku Mailing List - Tue, 2014-04-22 17:45
This is mostly for devs and potential GSoC students. I've done some minor cleanup to the EFI code and updated to a new Haiku revision to leave it in a better state than it has been siting in for a few months. As I didn't want to change history in the efi_pm branch I've created a new efi branch[1]. Consider the efi_pm branch obsolete. It builds and runs, if you disable 'treat errors as warnings' for src/system/boot. This can be done in build/jam/ArchitectureRules by ...

Clsoe the tab list menu when clicking the button twice.

The menu was closed, but immediately reopened by the click on the
button. If the time since the menu closing is shorter than a
double-click delay, don't open the menu again.

Fixes #9538.

Notifications: only color the left stripe

* Setting the important/failure color on the whole view looked ugly.
* Important notifications use B_CONTROL_HIGHLIGHT_COLOR, instead of
white.
* We may want to select better success and failure colors. Pure red and
green don't look very good. Suggestions welcome.
