Re: Exec Bug Report

Why not use a requester for that instead? Because my original program was intended to use alerts and the shock value they provide. I originally wrote it as a prank that acted as if a virus had entered the system. It used to do a tease and provide some options for left mouse and right mouse and indi...

Re: Exec Bug Report

This is how alerts are dealt with now, classic style yelow recevreable alrts kill the system, so are no longer appropriate, so yes it *is* "right". There is no real reason to use an alert on Amiga OS4 anyway. It's not right for my program which uses the alert function to bring up an alert. ;-) The ...

Re: Exec Bug Report

I just tested an old Alert program I wrote and bug fixed last year. Running it now it keeps bringing up a GR which isn't right. The SDK says nothing about it but the function has certainly changed. This is on my X1000.

Re: Exec Bug Report

What you *should* see is Grim Reaper displaying the Alert number you passed to IExec->Alert(). Ie 00000000 in the test case you wrote above. Generally this is true but to my understanding only the deadend type should evoke a Grim Reaper. A zero alert value should fall under the recover type and evo...

Re: What is the latest baseline OS4 SDK?

Latest official SDK are 53.30. But if you want new gcc, binutils and co, you need go to https://github.com/sba1/adtools/ , and build compiler for yourself. This is good but it does miss out on gdb. Checking out the sources it looks like it needs mass modification to compile for OS4. Which is a sham...

Re: Arctic Fox 27.9.12 (Firefox 63.0) a fork of Pale Moon

So I've had a read about it and still trying to figure out how it would benefit over a PPC optimised port of FireFox? Such as the one the PPC laptop people worked on. It looks to be of benefit for older OSX versions. But it's strange you would be using an old OSX version on x86 based hardware for pe...

Re: Kernel 4.20/5.0

Thanks a lot for your reply. Did you boot Ubuntu 9.04 with our kernel 4.19 on your X1000? The oldest Ubuntu that I ever used on my X1000 was Ubuntu 10.04.4 LTS. Yes I did! Years ago I "hacked" Ubuntu to install on my A1/XE. And it's been solid since. The only Linux install I have that hasn't broken...
