Re: Date & Time will not stay

OTOH there would be even less sense in not adhering to the time changes the rest of the world have chosen to make - sort of like insisting on driving on the other side of the road than all your fellow drivers. I never suggested doing any such thing. If the A-Eon time prefs doesn't work correctly wi...

Re: Date & Time will not stay

The stupid time prefs in the humourously named "Enhancer" pack is baffled by daylight saving, and was always one hour out. I eventually solved the problem by programming daylight saving dates into it (even though the standard AOS locale prefs writes this to a variable. To be honest there ...

Re: Date & Time will not stay

Setting it to a "time server" for the date and time (no one elaborated on how to do this) is handy but does not address the real problem. Just add to your S:network-startup file: Date SERVER <ntp server> SetClock SAVE and your clock will be set according to NTP every startup. I use fi.poo...

Re: Date & Time will not stay

Just sync your computer's clock to an NTP server on startup and it won't matter if the hardware clock keeps the time or not while the computer is turned off.

I have both my NG Amiga computers set up this way.

Re: Appdir

I find this does not work as the actual values are stored in env: and envarc: so unless I delete those entries clearing appdir does not work. Is this proper approach to just clear out or am I missing something. No, constantly clearing APPDIR: is overkill when the real problem is that APPDIR: is an ...

Re: Are #pragma pack() statements no longer needed?

@xenic The latest AHI includes in the AmigaOS source repo do now have the standard alignment pragma statements (also optional AmigaOS namespace for C++). Most likely they were left out before because no-one thought to add them and the lack of them didn't cause any problems because none of the public...

Re: Missing definitions

There is this item in SDK:Include/include_h/gadgets/layout.h: #define LAYOUT_LabelColumn (LAYOUT_Dummy+34) /* (ULONG) LABELTEXT_LEFT or LABELTEXT_RIGHT, the side where object labels are placed in a vertical group. */ I can't find LABELTEXT_LEFT or LABELTEXT_RIGHT defined anywhere in the SDK. Can so...

Re: AmiStore/CANDI bug

@Raziel

IIRC it was a dependency of the updated libfontconfig and that is why it had to be included in 4.1 FE update #1. Something to do with fonts I guess...
