Latest Bugs & Tasks
If Haiku shuts down with the Atheros device in the wrong state, it is not detected by Haiku on next startup, or only partially detected with no ability to scan for or connect to networks. This does not happen with Windows 7, GNU/Linux, or OpenBSD, and booting into one of those OSes will reset the device so that it appears on next boot into Haiku. This looks like the driver isn't resetting the device before attempting to use it.
This may actually be a problem with the way Haiku handles PCIe devices in general, since it's a similar pattern to the problems I've had with the onboard Conexant HD Audio on the same machine (Thinkpad x120e), only there the default state is non-working.
This is hrev47924.
To reproduce select Video settings->MIDI->Video settings-> MIDI
I noticed that HaikuDepot is localized in the source code but not in the hrev47930 build . The text in the enclosed picture should be in Finnish.
Got this error today when packaging even though nothing changed (well something did, see below): Failed to parse package info date from package file: Bad data on this hrev47395 install.
Digging, I found out that package is choking on a StyledEdit attribute of the .PackageInfo file.. only now that it is combined with a Pe attribute. Indeed a few days ago I transitioned from using StyledEdit to exclusively using Pe, so I guess I'm now getting a double serving of "caret position" attributes on my textfiiles :-).
Anyway the workaround was simply to "reset" the .PackageInfo file, create a new one, free of text editor attributes. Filing a low-priority ticket in case the underlying reason matters though..
I removed dead links to Google Videos. This page is linked from our about page so it is quite frontmost on the website. However it was not updated in a while. We should try to update it with new videos (alphas reviews by 3rdparties, and other material related to Haik uis available on youtube and elsehwere). Also the BeGeistert conferences could be added there.
when first browsing the website you may navigate to http://www.haiku-os.org/about.
It is surprising that there is no link from that page to https://www.haiku-os.org/slideshows/haiku-1 (our up to date screenshot tour, which is linked from the main page header). There is instead a link to the "gallery" page on the sidebar, which shows pictures from 2006-2009, including two outdated screenshot tours which give a not-so-good impression about Haiku and should probably be archived: http://www.haiku-os.org/gallery
We have this big shiny download button on the website home page. However, the typical workflow is:
- Find Haiku homepage
- Navigate a bit to see what it's all about (look at screenshots, for example)
- Decide to download
At this point it is not obvious that you must go back to the homepage to find the download link again.
When writing in text field there is a significant delay before the text appears.
Using Webkit 1.4.5 hrev47934 x86_64
When setting up a new e-mail account in BeMail, the first option given to users is IMAP, which is apparently not functioning right now. That sends them down a blind alley full of error messages... and if they're like me, they could easily assume the whole program is non-functioning and give up on it. POP3 does work, from what I'm told...so I propose that POP3 is made the default option when setting up a new account. I'd even suggest the IMAP option be removed from the combo for now, until it works.
Using hrev47928 Webkit 1.4.5
Webpositive very slow to close (see attached screenshot)
Applied in hrev47926. Thanks!
Applied in hrev47925
No idea how this slipped through.
Works fine indeed. Thanks!
Can't reproduce with a native install either. Thanks for checking! Closing as fixed.
