There have been some changes/improvements AROS structure one (see News list), some latest Deadwood fixes and some updated software.

It is quicker to install than to update, if there are no major core changes next time I will create an Installer Update!

Thanks - so I just need to get the recent bug fixes installed to get fully up to date.

Please note for Samsung netbook users (mine is a N130 but I was getting the same issues when I was using a N145) the current version of i8042.hidd does not work (touchpad is 'dead'Wink, an old version from the ICAROS distribution does (I've attached in case anyone else needs it, zipped so it can be uplaoded).

Here's the odd thing; both the old and new drivers claim to be the same version (1.4) but are different as they have different sizes - old is 14768 bytes, new is 17644 bytes.

Cheers,
Nigel.

Sticking with 2.5 on my Samsung N130, I've been having a bit of a try out of the included software and have been hitting the occasional privelidge violation error.

This first happend with YAM when trying to click on an icon at the bottom of the read message window, but this wasn't consistent and to be honest YAM can be a bit unstable at the best of times.

However, I've found an occurance that seems to be reproduceable with DTConvertGUI. After starting, if you immediately hit 'cancel' you get the error attached below.

Cheers,
Nigel.

P.S. I'm currently not finding anything else that's ustable though, and this install defintely feels faster that than the old 2.2; due to the new C library? Anyway, aside from the odd issue as noted above looking great!

P.P.S. Spoke too soon - StackMon also gives an error (please see below).

ntromans, I with AROS One v2.5 have no Guru with "DTConvertGU" and with "StackMon", see scrennshot !
You probably don't have "Authentic" AROS One v.25, surely you mixed system files from the old Core or software/libraries from old distributions.

Even with YAM I don't have any Guru I tried it for a few minutes, although I didn't understand which icon to click, take a screenshot

Install AROS One v2.5 "Clean" and then try running these applications again !

Mixing files from distibutions? No - this is a clean, new install of 2.5 on a new hard-drive (the old one was full so I took it as an opportunity to replace it and start from scratch). I'm wondering if this is a CPU specific error - the Samsung runs an Intel Atom.

As to Yam, it's clicking on an icon for an attachment in the bottom of the read message window - please see attachment below for an exmple (the html file). As mentioned, this is very itermittent and I haven't identified the exact combination of actions which generate it.

Cheers,
Nigel.

GHI did some Tests see screenshots, only once I received a Guru, other times I attached files and received no error, so it may be an internal YAM bug.

For "DTConvertGU" and "StackMon" no problem, I don't think it depends on your PC, as verification try them with AROS One "Live" from ISO or DVD on the same PC, if it works it means you have something incompatible in your system

Hi Amigasystem,
Firstly thanks for moving my posts detaiing the bugs - I was going to try to do that this lunchtime you've already done it! Sorry again for posting in the wrong place.

YAM's bugs are annoyingly intrmittent but can you forward an e-mail? For me selecting 'forward' always locks up YAM.

Booting from AROSOne 2.5 lite DVD - same crash with DTConvert GUI

StackMon has a new discovery - it's crashing when OWB is open; if not StackMon starts OK. Now, I've got he stack on OWB set to a massive value to try to stop it locking up when browsing (320000000 bytes) so possibly that large value is crashing StackMon?

Cheers,
Nigel.

As you can see from the screenshot I started 4 "OWB" and 4 "DTConvert GUI" without any problem !!!

How much RAM do you have on your PC ? have you checked that the RAM is good ?

For YAM unfortunately it is unstable, it happens that for no reason it crashes the system, or when you add an attachment, when you simultaneously use Wander with some other application.

Ram is fine (no issues with any other program including Janus which I give a lot of memoery to) and I have 2GB of it.

The DTConvertGUI crash was not linked to OWB - this happends even if DTConvertGUI is the first and only thing started after boot. It was the StackMon error which only happended after OWB was started,

As mentioned, for at least the privilidge violation error (DTConvertGUI) I wonder if it's due to the CPU type on the netbook; it would be interesting to know if anyone else running an Intel Atom based machine has seen anything similar?

Cheers,
Nigel.

That looks like the DTConvert GUI that I developed. It is written to work with Gadtools UI. There is another one called DTConvert that is MUI/Zune. I didn't develop that one however.

It hasn't been fully tested so let me know if there's any odd behavior or if it doesn't work.

I confirm StackMon if it is open OWB goes into Guru !

I recompiled (GCC library C) StackMon on AROS One, now it seems not to go into Guru anymore, it happened only once after running StackMon many times in a row, I attach file, try it !

The new StackMon works for me (including with OWB open) - great work , many thanks:-)

Re, DTConvertGUI, from miker's reply maybe the error (at least for my machine) is actually in Gadtools? Woulld make sence as pretty much everything else is using Zune and works just fine.

Cheers,
Nigel.

@miker

After doing some testing with DTConvert GUI, I was able to replicate the Guru!

Basically if you click on the "Source File" tab, open the request file and choose undo without choosing any files, then do the same thing with "Destination", i.e. open request file and then click undo, at which point if you click convert the Guru appears.

For StackMon the problem is in program itself. Stack above 10000000 (8 digits) will cause the bug to manifest itself. Re-compilation will not help.

The fix most likely is to change line 206 in tasks.c - from [8] to [16]

I corrected from [8] to [16] works fine !

Question just to learn !

The MakeFile gave me an error when compiling because a path was not found, I made a small change and the copilation was successful, but I do not know if I did it right !

TARGET=../StackMon corrected to TARGET=StackMon


Yesterday in the compilation I had obtained a smaller executable because I had not used the MakeFile but I had used a string, maybe I needed to add a few more things ?, I had used this string

GCC main.c locale.c tasks.c timer.c mcc_RunningGauge.c -o StackMon

The change of TARGET should be ok - you will just get the executable in different directory. I can't answer the question of why the size differs between two compilation method, possible due to different settings. Add -O2 -g to your command line before -o StackMon and see if that makes the sizes same.
AMIGASYSTEMAMIGASYSTEMDistro Maintainer

If I add '-O2 -g' the size is equal to MakeFile

GCC main.c locale.c task.c timer.c mcc_RunningGauge.c -o StackMon > 27,8 KB

GCC main.c locale.c task.c timer.c mcc_RunningGauge.c -O2 -g -o StackMon > 159 KB

MakeFile > 159 KB

Ok Thanks for the info that I may need in the future !
