Can't git clone or pull for haikuports, haikuporter and haikuports.cross

I am having network- or permissions-related problems downloading (git clone) on haikuports.cross or
updating (git pull) haikuports and haikuporter.

I had succeeded previously git-cloning haikuports and haikuporter.  I also succeeded with git pull on
haiku and buildtools.

I followed instructions from web page and show the results:

-bash-4.3$ git clone https://bitbucket.org/haikuports/haikuports.cross.git

Problems (probably) related to the nightly relase

Hello,
I'm sorry for bothering you so much, but I don't understand if the problems I encounter using the nightly relase (rev 47733 x86 gcc2, I've already turn update on) are correlated to the fact that I'm using a nightly or if they are real errors.

For example, all the background are black. I upload some images:
http://appinginf.altervista.org/prova/da_non_cancellare/screenshot1.png
(don't worry, this is a website of mine)

I've thought opening a ticket wasn't necessary, because those problems were related to the use of a nightly relase.

Re: haiku Digest V14 #94

Wait... what the ... huh?  Automatic update feature?  You mean, like MacOS X and Windows kinda updates?  Where is this and how do you activate it?

You don't have to reinstall it -- just set up and use the automatic update feature.

Re: haiku Digest V14 #94

Hello.
I was wondering...if I have to find problems or try to solve problems, 
which version on haiku should I install?
the official alpha 4 or some nightly?

I would like to avoid re-installing the OS every time a nightly is 
relased...xD but in the alpha 4 version I think I could find problems 
that have been solved already.

Thank you
Alessandro

How to contribute in Haiku?


Hello.
I'm sorry if (maybe) this is not the right place for write the following:

I would like to, gradually and in my free time, contribute to Haiku.
I study computer engineering at Pisa University, and I've basic knowledge of C++, Java and Assembler (GAS) programming language (and of course I'm ready to learn what is needed)

I'm reading "Learning to Program with Haiku" (lesson 16) written by DarkWyrm.

There is something I could do by now or I have to wait until I'll learn enought of Haiku programming?

For now I've subscribed a recurrent donation (~6 months ago) and I use goodsearch as search engine.

Bye bye
Alessandro (Ita)

(PS.: I'm sorry I'm not so good in english)

How do I get Haiku's ramdisk working?

Hi there!

I was wondering how I could get Haiku's ramdisk working.
There is a binary "ramdisk" in src/bin/ I can compile. Fine, I put it
in /system/non-packaged/bin/, but "ramdisk create -s 2g" says:

Error: Failed to open RAM disk control device
"/dev/disk/virtual/ram/control": No such file or directory
Error: Failed to create RAM disk device: No such file or directory

There's a src/add-ons/kernel/drivers/disk/virtual/ram_disk I can compile, too.
I put the binary into
/system/non-packaged/add-ons/kernel/drivers/bin/ram_disk
and link to it from
/system/non-packaged/add-ons/kernel/drivers/disk/virtual/ram_disk

Still no go. What am I missing?

There's also a src/add-ons/kernel/file_systems/ramfs which currently
doesn't compile. Is that needed as well?

On IRC it was mentioned that our "mount" command may be capable to
make a ramdisk available. I failed to make that work though...

So, any advise on ramdisks?

Regards,
Humdinger

Touchpad problems

Hi,

Does anybody else have a very erratic and insensitive touchpad under 
Haiku?  I have a dual-boot Ubuntu/Haiku laptop that I usually use with a 
wireless mouse because I don't like touchpads much, anyway, and I had 
pad problems when I first bought it.

Today, though, I took it to the library for something, and forgot the 
mouse.  I couldn't make the touchpad behave enough even to get to the 
Touchpad Preference to see if I could improve things!  Eventually I gave 
up and went home to get the mouse.

With the mouse, I was able to set up the pad so it was at least 
partially useable (mainly by killing tapping completely), but it will 
still just freeze for moments in the middle of a sweep, and isn't very 
nippy even with the highest speed and acceleration.

OTOH if I switch to Ubuntu, the same pad is nice and smooth and speedy.

Anyone else have this?  The only thing I know about the pad is that it's 
listed in /dev as ".../ps2/synaptics-1".  It seems to be a persistent 
glitch because it was present in the A4 release, in my current (year-old 
or so) work system, and is the same in the recent PM partition I 
installed.

Thanks,

	-- Pete --

Can't git-clone haikuports, silly error message: update

Now I was unable to download (git clone) haikuports because of a silly error message:

I type command

git clone https://bitbucket.org/haikuports/haikuports.git

but all I got is

fatal: unable to access 'https://bitbucket.org/haikuports/haikuports.git/': unable to set private
key file: '/etc/openssl/certs/ca-root-nss.crt' type PEM

same when I tried another certs file.

I set/exported both GIT_SSL_KEY and GIT_SSL_CERT to this file, still got this error.

mpop and msmtp work with this certs file.

I tried git:// instead of https:// but got nothing, just timed out.

Was bitbucket.org vengeful, or is NetBSD and pkgsrc not up to it?

I built security/mozilla-certs from NetBSD pkgsrc, then the "git clone" worked.

Now I don't know if installing mozilla/rootcerts made all the difference, or something was down at bitbucket.org.

The haikuports wiki at bitbucket.org was a dead link, but back to life when I did the successful "git clone":
suggests something may have been temporarily down at bitbucket.org.

I was on website, but no clue on how to get around the SSL certs/private-key Berlin wall.

I tried replacing "https://" with "git <at> " but got the message

fatal: repository 'git@.../haikuports/haikuports.git'
does not exist

Am I missing something, is NetBSD not up to it, or is something down at bitbucket.org ?

I see the haikuports wiki at bitbucket.org is a dead link.

Cross-building buildtools and Haiku from BSD: some questions getting started

I git-cloned the buildtools and haiku and have questions getting started.

Do I build everything one step at a time, or can I configure from haiku/haiku?

If I run from haiku/haiku directory
./configure --help 

I get
./configure: gcc: not found

I am in FreeBSD-current amd64.

Beginning with 10.0, FreeBSD switched to llvm/clang at least for amd64, i386, though gcc is still
available, and I have a gcc47 installed from ports.

I can still get the effect of ./configure --help by running 
less configure

Can I use clang instead of gcc to cross-build tools and Haiku?

Or how do I tell it my gcc is /usr/local/bin/gcc47 ?

And do I need to tell make to ignore /etc/make.conf used for FreeBSD ports?

How do I set GCCDATE?

Should I build gcc2, gcc4 or gcc2-hybrid?  I'm inclined toward hybrid for maximum compatibility, though I
have no old BeOS software and realize upstream support for GCC 2.9.5 may be hard to come by, may be long past EOL.

I might want to try more than one way, thus would need an object directory to be named something other than "generated".

Maybe generated47, generated-clang and nbgenerated?

I might want to try FreeBSD with clang, FreeBSD with /usr/local/bin/gcc47 or possibly NetBSD-current
amd64 with gcc which is at v4.8.3.

FreeBSD can not connect with Ethernet on MSI Z77 MPOWER motherboard, bug shared with OpenBSD and
DragonFlyBSD; wi-fi using Hiro H50191 USB-stick adapter is Cinderella mode, may go down any time without warning.

Linux, NetBSD and Haiku work consistently with this Ethernet.

On my other computer, MSI Z68MA-ED55(B3) motherboard, FreeBSD, NetBSD and Linux connect consistently
with the Ethernet.

I have three hard drives for two computers, the third being an RMA replacement for a Western Digital Green 3
TB that developed bad sectors.  This third hard drive is inside a Sabrent enclosure, not yet partitioned,
USB 2.0 and eSATA, using eSATA in this case.

I figure after I build and install an updated Haiku, future builds will be easier, using native tools.
