Hi there, I'd like to propose commit access for Augustin Cavalier. 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 ...

[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. ...

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

Fri, 2014-08-01 11:45
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 ...

[haiku-development] An idea about compiling applications (James Leone)

Fri, 2014-08-01 09:45
To start off, I'll say up front that I have near zero programming skills. I have compiled applications before, but of course, that's after all of the very difficult work had been done for me. So I don't know if what I am about to attempt to describe is an actual impossibility. All I know is that I would like to help somehow. I wish I was able to contribute by compiling applications. But at my skill level, I can't do much more than download some code and typing ./configure and make. ...

Maybe this solution could solve the issue of having two different Media Server with the GCC2/4 situation, but GCC2 is temporary and should go away in any cases so would have been better to not have any GCC2 support than this. But imagine this future hybrid scenario: a Haiku with 64 Bit kernel that wants to run a maybe proprietary 32 Bit Media application... this application obviously wants a 32 Bit codec and so it needs to link all Media Server? Or it is better to have another Media Server waiting for 32 Bit applications requests? ...
