@ChrisH

Very impressive work!

I'll purchase it.

It works nicely opening the item into Odyssey. Might be nice to separate
out the "News" gadget group into its own window, so it could coexist
using less screen space as a narrow list next to Odyssey on the same
screen. ie, act like a sidepanel to Odyssey.

Re: Trouble with YAM 2.9p and SimpleMail

a generic "error initializing TLSv1/SSLv3 session with server "pop3.strato.de" of...". It is using port 995, as described in strato´s server configuration help.


The same problem started for my pop3 mail from my Norwegian based server just about a month ago - this is a X1000 with AOS 4.1 FE.

The Yam developers have fixed this with updated SSL code in
Yam 2.10, but it is not released as a stable version yet. Looking at their website, some work has been done on 2.10 over the last year(s), and it looks like more has started this month.

Turning off SSL for mail receiving did work for getting pop3 download to work again.

The alternative is to take a chance and you can download and use the 2.10 (unstable) "nightly build" download, which I have done.
As of the Feb 5th build, you can do a drop-in replacement of the Yam executable.
However, as changes accumulate, you are at risk of being unable to go back to 2.9p1 later if it begins to need debugging for serious problems.

Note: the nightly build download has an expiration on it (a few weeks?), so you cannot grab one and continue using it without going to a new nightly build when it expires.

I could find no new announcements about Yam since last July. I just made a donation along with a request for the release of a new patch for 2.91 with the fixed SSL code.

FYI.

To share menus I simply attach the same menustrip to various windows. Always worked, and I've never heard about this being illegal.


Thanks. That's what I thought, but always had the nagging feeling that it might be one of those things that, every 100th time or so, could get into a deadlock with Intuition.

menu.class: Shared Menus?
Just popping in
Just popping in


What's the situation with sharing menu objects among multiple active window objects?

I've got a program that can keep multiple windows open for various purposes, but I'd like the "program menu" to stay constant for the user no matter which window happens to be selected.

I've been attaching the same NewMenu-generated menu to each window and making sure to check for WMHIMenuPick on every window input.

That seems to work ok, but is this an acceptable way to do it?
The notes in autodoc window_cl.doc under the heading "IDCMP VERIFY EVENTS" are a bit confusing, but maybe indicated this is suspect?

Quote:
If we manage to establish some cooperation between Window Class and Menu Class, ...


This cooperation seems pretty necessary if this type of menu sharing is supported. If the user program is to be relieved of the job of tracking such sharing the menu object may want to be notified when a window is closed or iconified. It will need to track its clients in order to correctly remove the menustrip before window closing and to know when the menu itself can be disposed.

Any thoughts?

Re: Does HeartBleed affect Amigas?

Maybe you have activated the Odyssey option to ignore SSL errors?


Nope that's not it.

It seems that the "revoke" feature of SSL Certificates is not widely liked
by browser writers - for performance reasons and also lack of confidence
in its effectiveness. I saw a claim the Chrome just turns it off by default.

I guess no one expected something like HeartBleed and there was
foot-dragging.

Re: Does HeartBleed affect Amigas?

There is also the issue that in the likely/unlikely (take you pick) event
that some one or organization has been able to obtain the server's
private key in the two years a server has been vulnerable, it will
probably be very easy for them to create very effective mimic sites or
man-in-the-middle attacks.

So, the general recommendation of security experts seems to be
that the vulnerable server certificates be "revoked" as well as new ones
installed.

Is there any way to configure Odyssey to do some sort of checking
for cert revocation?

As a test, try site https://revoked.grc.com, which has a revoked
certificate, but the revocation is not noticed in Odyssey.

TimberWolf, on the other hand, does catch this.

Re: Can WB-launched progs get Shell command path?
Just popping in
Just popping in


When WB is loaded it inherits the current path set of the shell that started it.

It also is possible to assign the "normal" shell path to a running Workbench
later on with the "NEWPATH" option of LOADWB

from Help LOADWB
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEWPATH

Update the Workbench command search path to use the settings
of the shell the LoadWB program runs in. Workbench uses the
search path (maintained through the shell "Path" command) to
find programs whose names do not include a directory name.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If that is any help.

Re: Using Flood()

Maybe you can do it with Areas.

I had trouble with Flood on AOS4 and I finally gave up and used AreaEllipse

I have not tried AreaFill on an arbitrarily shaped area, but it might be worth trying that.

Re: SAM alignment??

@derfs

Thanks for the input! So floats have to be 8 byte aligned, no...?

It seems though, that this could not possibly be related to a crash on a fmr instruction, so I guess I am back at the old drawing board...


Unlikely, but there is another problem with the fmr instruction on the Sam versus that on the earlier PPCs:

A number of the FP instructions exist in both a "recording" form and a non-recording form, based on the Rc bit (bit 31) in the instruction coding.

eg, fmr has a 0 in bit 31
fmr. has a 1 in bit 31

(the dot after the fmr is the usual assembler representation of the recording form)

If FP "recording", then bits 0..3 of the FPCSR are copied into the CR1 field of the Condition Register at the end of the instruction.

Unfortunately, the 440ep SOCs do not support the recording form of FP instructions (though they do support, or course, the similar recording form of the Fixed Point instructions).

As of PowerISA V2.02, the group or recording FP instrus has been separated out into a different "category" in the instruction set, so it is kosher for an embedded processor which supports FP not to support them.

I don't think they were used much, by my Modula-2 compiler was generating "fmr." in some places and I had to change that when my Sam arrived to get programs that used it not to crash.

The links in "Recent OS4 Files" from OS4Depot.net still don't work.

There was some mention in July about a new update that might fix that.
Is that still possibility?

I guess it is the "&" problem still, since it does work if that is replaced by just "&".

If not fixable, it would be better just to list the entry names but not have them links. The OS4Depot.net link itself just above them is good.

The UtilityBase links, not so much.

Re: startup-sequence can't get past IPrefs

Quote:
Next time just add "set echo on" to the top of the startup-sequence and everything it does is echoed to the boot cli window (the boot pic is closed/hidden automatically with this option).


Ah. I didn't know that.

In fact, putting this in causes the problem to disappear!

Further investigation shows that adding even just one
"ECHO XXX" statement will do the same.

May be something to do with a delayed window open for the bootup CLI?
Somehow, that gui.prefs has something that gets into a deadlock if the window has not opened.

Re: startup-sequence can't get past IPrefs

Thanks. It was not the UBOOT date though.

Ended up renaming all the *.prefs files in SYS:Env-Archive/sys/
to *.prefsX. Boot was ok with all these prefs files removed.

Began renaming them back one by one, with a re-boot to test each one.

Apparently, there was some problem with gui.prefs, since only its restoration made the problem recur.

Funny that the Prefs program accepted that file with no problem, and I did not see anything in the displayed choices that seemed odd.

A completely new gui.prefs from scratch seems to boot fine now. Most of the settings are the same, but I have not checked every one yet.

startup-sequence can't get past IPrefs
Just popping in
Just popping in


Working fine up to now, when
all of a sudden, booting my Sam440 flex, OS4.1 Upd3 hangs up with the boot image displayed.

If I do a early boot menu boot-without-the-startup file, it goes into the bootup shell fine, and if I then type an "execute startup-sequence" from that shell, it all seems to work, and I end up with my system just as it should be and everything working fine! USB, Network, ScreenMode, etc.

Inserting "ECHO >> file" statements into startup-sequence indicates that it gets to the IPrefs command but no further.

Anyone seen this symptom? It seems similar to other reports, but I have not seen one that works so well doing the startup-sequence after the boot to shell.

Seems like it must be a timing thing, but I'm not sure what to do next.
Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Tom

Modula-2 Compiler updated
Just popping in
Just popping in



I've uploaded a new release of the PPC native code Modula-2 compiler to OS4Depot: at AgletM2PPC

Not yet greatly extended from the last release, but more stable and with updates for the latest public AOS SDK, plus a first try at using Annotate's ARexx interface to integrate with the M2IDE.
-----------------------------------------------------------------
release Apr 5, 2011
- Fixes some compiler code generation errors.
- Supports Annotate as an associated editor in M2IDE.
- Updates some Amiga library interfaces to SDK 53.20.
- Fixes bugs in REAL I/O in ISO support library.
- Extends Aglet support modules:
> AmigaTimer adds "waituntil" and "entropy" features.
> PipeIO is more efficient and adds a timeout feature.
> OsRun is a little more filled out.
> SimpleGraphics can be used for a type of double buffered
animation.
-----------------------------------------------------------------

You can check out the accompanying documentation at Aglet Modula-2 Documentation (PDF)

It's pretty "Amigaized", and IMHO more fun to develop with than GNU c.
I'll follow up with a developer "fun-thing" shortly.

Tom
