DIR command bug

Post by ancalimon »

When I hold ctrl to boot without startup-sequence, I get picture on my VGA monitor connected to CVisionPPC. The dir command lists the files but the display becomes corrupted; it displays one column properly, but when there are more than one column (for example if AmigaDOS window is wide enough), they overlap each other.

That is hardly a fault of the dir command. It is more likely a fault of the console or graphics lib.

Can you provide a picture of the problem?

Here. The first dir command worked properly but the second one and the rest caused corruption.

Maybe the corruption happens when the window starts scrolling up the text?
Albeit it doesn't seem to have been scrolled at all?
Seems like it fits on the window perfectly?

I can't reproduce the bug with AOS 4.1 FE:
  • Kickstart/con-handler.kmod version 53.72 (03-Oct-14)
  • Kickstart/console.device version 53.83 (01-Oct-14)
  • Kickstart/graphics.library version 54.148 (26-Sep-14)
Can you list your con-handler, console, and graphics libary versions for us ancalimon?

It looks like a console problem to me. Looking forward to the answers to Spektro's question (actual versions).

Kickstart/con-handler.kmod version 53.78 (14-Apr-16)
Kickstart/console.device version 53.99 (05-May-16)
Kickstart/graphics.library version 54.226 (13-Sep-16)


Why are using older files?

Maybe the problem is related with CVisionPPC.card or 3dLabsPermedia2.chip or BootVGA.kmod ?

I have two AOS versions installed for testing.

I tested with the latest AOS version (AOS 4.1 FE Update 1) now and no graphical glitches. However, I'm using AmigaOne XE.

con-handler 53.80 (27-Jan-17)
console.device 53.105 (25-Jan-17)
graphics.library 54.228 (17-Jan-17)

@Spektro

I have update 1 installed and yet your versions are still newer than mine, why is that?
Are you probably still on a beta system?
I can't believe that update 1 for XE has newer versions as it was said that it will bring all platforms to the same level!?

This is definitely a console bug, even with current versions. I'll look into it.

BZ #9819.
