Re: DOS-handler completion with AmigaOS4.1Final

Hello @Niels @Colinw @Amigans For the termination problem I used a Forbid() call just before the return 0; of my "other task". And now the cumulative trouble of tasks DOS-handler not finishing is removed. Great ! IExec->Forbid() is - NOT - a valid process exit arbitration mechanism. IExec...

Re: DOS-handler completion with AmigaOS4.1Final

Without seeing your source code to look what you are doing, it's difficult to say exactly what is causing your problem, however you did mentioned above; I suppose because I used NP_Child True when creating a process which shares data with the my ACON handler code. There's at least two problems with ...

Re: Bug in FE Update 2 Date Command

Those have already been updated and have been with the beta testers for some time.
The first priority was to stop the crashes with an updated timesync.library.
The rest will be released when appropriate, (soon).

Re: Bug in FE Update 2 Date Command

The propper fixes are in the pipeline, please try an avoid mix-n-match type solutions, you usually get more unpleasant old bugs and interactions reappearing when reverting components. This particular problem stems from erroneous documentation where different components expected different things, but...

Re: How to free memory allocated by AddTrackable()

If you are getting "permit without forbid" messages, then I would assume that you havn't updated all the components that interract with each other in this regard. In the path to multi-core, the kernel has changed the way it handles peeking and poking some execbase fields, and I know the ne...

Re: Setting Odyssey as default tool in Deficons? (Solved)

I wrote the URLOpen program specifically with this use in mind, it's mentioned in the URLOpen.doc in the second paragraph. The FILE protocol is the default, you can specify other protocols that you have configured, (as in the URL Prefs tabs) if they are required, by using the PROTOCOL= keyword in th...

Re: How to free memory allocated by AddTrackable()

You can't use this function in application software unless you know what you are doing, and, it must never be used for anything other than what YOU allocate yourself, the rest is done by other system components like DOS. Even then, you need to be carefull that your hook code segment wasn't unloaded ...

Re: EXTMem

Extmem works just fine. For the ram-handler, some hardware requires it to be manually enabled, like the SAM440 and classics because they only have limited ram and won't normally be able to run out of virtual memory addresses. SAM460, A1222, X1000, X5000_20 & X5000_40 have it enabled by default, ...

Re: Workbench library issue

Works for me. !! What editor are you using ? because it sounds like it may have a filehandle left open somehow. Run the "filehandlescan" program, (in SDK:c) passing it the volume name of the partition where you are compiling to, see if anything is left open. All I did here was copy your co...
