[GSoC 2014: ARM port] Week #1 and #2

Blog post by dnivra on Sun, 2014-05-04 08:52
Hey everyone! Here’s an update on what’s happened so far.

TL;DR - PulkoMandy managed to build the bootstrap image and kallisti5 has made some progress in running the image on the qemu. This is a significant progress since bootstrap image build never succeeded but not quite usable on BBB. I’ve not made much significant contribution. Instructions for building the bootstrap image are at the end. Otherwise, read on.

Hello everyone,

Not so much exciting things this week...

Well, good news first, on wednesday I uploaded HaikuWebkit 1.3.1 packages. It should be more stable than the previous releases, and includes work from the last 3 weeks including some more bugfixes for audio/video support, working web socket support, and many smaller fixes.

Me, myself and I

Hello everyone, my name is Louis Feuvrier, I am a french student located in Paris (GMT+2) studying computer science at EPITA. I am lucky enough to be part of a laboratory (LSE) as my curriculum which allows me to work on interesting and low-level problems! Here's the one that will keep me awake at night in the following months (but hopefully not too much!)

Besides computer stuff, I enjoy listening to music, playing video games, watching tv shows or going to gigs.

Hello world!

Work continues on the testsuite: I found one bug in the testsuite system that greatly improved the results. Things are now properly reset between each test, which avoids many of the issues I was having. The last test run breaks down as follows:

  • 2 unexpected crashes
  • 2300 unexected failures
  • 400 unexpected successes
  • 5000 tests have no reference
  • And the remaining 30000 or so tests are now properly tagged

I will continue marking the failing tests as expected to fail, and review them in case I find one that's easy to fix. The 5000 "no references" tests are easily fixed, we just need to generate a reference rendering of the page. This is because these tests have platform-specific results, so there is no common reference for all platforms, and we need a haiku-specific one.
