I am not sure. I can recreate them at will on my laptop. Sometime this weekend I am going to download an newer nightly and try it again. I have already opened two tickets a few weeks ago.

I was referring to WebPositve. I just have a lot of crashes with it. I had a reproducible WebPositive crash and I reported it. But it could not be independently verified. Turned out it was specific to a marginal laptop. I retired the laptop. Are your WebPositive crashed reproducible and independently verifiable? ...

A leader has to lay out a vision that's compelling enough for everyone else to say Yeah, I have my pet issue but I'll put that aside because what this guy is saying is what I really want to see. ...

François, What you have is an extraordinarily good system there. Commercial class. Good documentation. I imagine that hours of effort is behind this. The quality is where Haiku wants to end up. But right now, the requirements, to an individual on his own, amount to a swarm of bees. What we want is for the task to be a mere gnat. ...

[haiku-development] Packaging complexities [was Re: What's the status of Haiku?] (Stephan Aßmus)

Sun, 2014-08-31 06:45
Hi James, it is very honorable that you try to get your hands dirty! The truth is that porting and packaging needs to be done properly on any platform. Especially a package like Python which is potentially used by many, many people, has to be properly ported and packaged. I have packaged a desktop application for Linux. It was pretty hard to ...

[haiku-development] Duplicate headers? (James Leone)

I noticed that some code that includes headers i.e. *.h wants to read the /boot/system/develop and .../develop/posix and .../develop/bsd directorories. Similarly, sys/*.h would read from both of these: ....posix/sys and .....bsd/sys. We have 9 duplicates amongst theze directories. How does the compiler know which one to pick? P.s. our zlib.h is misding 3 lines of code compared to Linux' same. Same ...

I started working on figuring out what patches Ive used last night. Its true Windows doesn't have a /usr directory. I've just learned what an ifdef statement is. I gather you all know what that is. The ratio of people that can pitch in to help in Windows vs Haiku is HUGE. Its a lot to ask a small group to do the work of thousands of people. For a Haiku developer the /usr issue has the scale of a swarm of bees. So many users in Windows a /usr directory is just a gnat. ...

While it all takes longer than wanted, and originally anticipated, I'm confident that we'll reach that goal eventually. Eventually doesn't have any value though. But good luck and I'm hoping for a better state of affairs next time I read an almost-ready article :) Best wishes, ...

I really didn't read the whole thread (instead I fixed the pc_serial driver to use the current tty module, just sayin...), but... The second surprise is that package development has appeared to have declined since it was put in place. It took me some time to get interested in packaging, but then I had a packaging rush recently, because I wanted many things available on my other machines. Of course it did slow down work on other sides but it's still useful. ...
