Moving libsolid-hal to unmaintained?

Hello everybody!

I'm doing some bug triage on libsolid (as well of some bug fixing) and I'm 
finding that most "nasty" bugs are fault of our HAL backend (or HAL itself).

I tried to build HAL and failed on it (easy fix though) but that made me 
realize that there is no point of me fixing HAL issues on Linux because nobody 
will actually use my fixes since I will be fixing bugs using HAL-Linux not 
HAL-bsd or HAL-XXX (where we have actual users of this backend).

So real question is, who is using libsolid-hal nowdays? 

Once we know the answer to that question I will:
-Make HAL backend option only available on those platforms.
-Move libsolid-hal either to unmaintained or to a new maintainer.

Even though I will be having more KDE time from now on, I don't see a reason 
why I shuold maintain this backend, I know how it works (ervin does as well) 
so if a new maintainer step up we can mentor and help him/her.

If nobody replies in a few days I will go ahead and move libsolid-hal to 
unmantained.

Also, in the extreme case that nobody cares about it (no platforms interested 
on HAL) I will remove the backend on frameworks branch and the backend will 
not be ported to libsolid2.

Cheers !

binary repository mirror at opensolaris.cz

Hi,
thanks to the opensolaris.cz owner, a binary IPS repo of KDE packages
for Solaris 11 is now running at http://pkg.opensolaris.cz:20000

enjoy

P.

P.S. The packages are a month old there as it's built inside
VirtualBox there and it's a real PITA (randomly stops responding, the
internal network explodes, ...).

Solaris 10 support & KDE 4.6.2

Most discussion of KDE4 on Solaris happens over at kde-
discuss <at> opensolaris.org, so this list may have missed that work on KDE4 on 
Solaris 10 has been picked up again (the specfile repo is always readable, drop 
me a note if you want to write to it) and we may even end up with SVR4 
packages again within reasonable time.

Solaris 8 and 9 are EOL and basically out of scope for KDE now.

KDE4 on Solaris 10, OpenSolaris, OpenIndiana

Most of the activity around KDE4 on Solaris 10 and later (with Sun Studio 12, 
mostly) has moved to the kde-discuss <at> opensolaris.org mailing list or #kde4-
solaris on FreeNode. The techbase page for KDE on Solaris is reasonably up-to-
date.

PS. This is a quarterly reminder, sent out when I remember to do so.

Does kinfocenter work as expected on Solaris?

(Please keep me CC'ed as I'm not subscribed to the list)

Hi there,

I'm working a bit on the FreeBSD-specific code in kinfocenter, and I've
noticed there's some #ifdef-ed code in info_solaris.cpp which depends on
HAVE_LIBDEVINFO_H being set.

However, there seems to be no code there to detect it, so the devinfo
code on Solaris is never compiled.

This is of particular interest to me because there is also devinfo(3)
for FreeBSD and DragonFlyBSD, however they are not inspired or
compatible with Solaris' libdevinfo (actually, I don't even know if
libdevinfo still exists on Solaris).

During my work, I will add a FindLibdevinfo.cmake to kde-workspace which
find FreeBSD's devinfo. Given the devinfo code for Solaris is never
compiled, there does not seem to be any risk of problems with that
#ifdef. It would be nice, though, if you guys could check if that piece
of code still works. If it doesn't I can remove it from the code.

Cheers,
rakuco

SVN commit 1182037 by mpyne:

Overhaul the system-specific lock handling in KSharedDataCache.

This commit refactors the lock selection, creation, and acquisition/release
semantics in KSharedDataCache by introducing an interface for the cache locker
which is created once at KSharedDataCache creation and used from there on out.

Instead of checking the lock type every time the cache is meant to be locked or
unlocked, a quick check is done to ensure that the lock type in the cache
didn't somehow change (wrapped in KDE_ISLIKELY so hopefully essentially
instant). Profiling revealed no real change in performance.

The more important part is that it should be easier to actually add lock
handling for e.g. the Windows platform. Once Windows-native locks are supported
all we'd need is a mmap wrapper to get rudimentary working support on Windows
without having to use the kshareddatacache_win.cpp hack.

This has been tested using pthread_mutex_t and sem_t under normal usage, my
torture suite, libkgame's testbed, a KSharedDataCache benchmark from Manuel
Mommertz and a couple of games of KPat. ;)

Please let me know if I've dorked it up somehow for non-Linux/glibc.

No, nobody's working on this AFAIK.  Might be a nice KDE GSoC project
for somebody, though :)

Cheeri,

g++ or sun compiler?

Hi,

as far as I've followed your discussions, it seems that most of you
are using the SunStudio compiler. Is there a special reason for this?
The compiler notes of Qt 4.6
(http://qt.nokia.com/doc/4.6/compiler-notes.html) say, that Sun CC
doesn't support all the features, e.g. WebKit is not supported. And -
it's been some months since I tried Sun CC - it also failed to compile
the concurrent examples.

Since osol ships g++ 3.4.2, which is fully supported (or am I wrong?),
I thought it would be better to use the GNU compiler.

Regards,
Thorsten

The last post I’ve seen on your site is from Jan. 2008 – almost two years ago.  Has there been any progress since then?  What do you have for Soaris?
