[haiku-development] Re: Saving network settings (Axel Dörfler)

This is also how it worked in BeOS (except there is no need to restart networking for us). Is that still the correct way to handle it? Is there a shared API for doing it? (it's just a driver settings file, but we need to decide what to put in it). 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 ...

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.
