This is what he's done so far: Not very large but a number of useful patches so far. He seems to know what he's doing in any case, and is actively contributing since quite some time. +1 from me. He's around for some time now and, well, qualifies for commit access. ...

[haiku-development] Aw: Re: [Request for protest] Media Kit: Extend media_header struct (Colin Günther)

Fri, 2014-08-08 09:45
Hi Jérôme, There is a b_media_format_changed for this need, isn't there? thanks for pointing this one out. I didn't have that on my list before, so I did some research and had a look on how B_MEDIA_FORMAT_CHANGED is intended to work (see further below = Research results =). TL;DR: In conclusion I'll keep sticking to my original proposal as it is, ...

Given how small the patches are, this makes me unsure wether Augustin is able to write more involved code. And I'm also worried that reviewers let those go through the patch review process. Even small patches are appreciated, and that's also not a good basis for granting or denying commit access IMO. It slipped through the current review process, too, anyway, and it's not like other people (including you and me) would always produce the greatest code. They are appreciated, but I'd like to see more of those and make sure ...

[haiku-development] [Request for protest] Media Kit: Extend media_header struct (Colin Günther)

Sun, 2014-08-03 09:45
Hi, are there any strong objections in extending the media_audio_header and media_video_header fields of the media_header struct like proposed below (scroll down to = Proposal =)? This proposal will allow a MediaDecoder to detect -and- communicate format changes in an audio/video stream. The proposal basically introduces some fields that are already defined in media_raw_audio_format ([1, 2]), media_video_display_info ([3, 4, 5]) and media_raw_video_format ([6, 7]). ...

[haiku-development] Ethernet drivers question: update (Thomas Mueller)

Sat, 2014-08-02 23:45
Motherboard in question is MSI Z77 MPOWER, and Ethernet chip is Realtek 8111E, which comes in many variants, but presumably only one on a given motherboard model. (Free, Open and DragonFly)BSD recognize this Ethernet but fail to connect. Linux, NetBSD and Haiku R1Alpha4 are OK, so no complaint against Haiku on this issue. I pointed out that the Ethernet chip was supported in Haiku R1A4. I was able to web-browse with Web Positive. ...

[haiku-development] Re: An idea about compiling applications (pulkomandy)

Fri, 2014-08-01 15:45
Is there a way to eliminate the need for patches by enhancing the way configure behaves so that it knows what function calls to substitute in when configure runs? The idea of configure scripts is more or less that: detecting which features are available and which compiler flags need to be passed. This way, only the configure scripts need to be aware of all differences between platforms, and the remaining parts of the code in the application ideally wouldn't need any changes. ...

My belief is that these patches are applied to a file called configure, supplied with the source code for the program I think the patches are really applied to the source code, not the 'configure' file. When you port an application, you try to compile it, see what errors you get, find the problematic place in the source code and fix it (that's how I understand it, although I've never ported anything). It involves digging through the source code and dealing with scenarios like the application ...
