BeOS & Derivatives "It looks like the Haiku Webkit port initiated by Ryan Leavengood has entered a productive second stage of development, and thanks to the recent work by one of the new project team members, Andrea 'xeD' Anzani, tangible progress has been made as shown by the recent screenshot showing the HaikuLauncher application rendering bebits.com. I was curious about his work, so I went directly to the source and asked a few questions to Andrea; here are his answers." On a related note, Haiku now has a new nightly build archive.

Yeah it's really, really annoying... I'm trying to find out who added it on #haiku and see if they can restrict the animation to the header img or something, as it makes reading the text quite annoying at the moment :/.

What version of Bah Humbug are you using? ;-)

Looking forward to this. I've just spent the morning trying to get the BONE version of Firefox running on my Haiku partition. I've edited UserSetupEnvironment but it's moaning about .so.stub files. And of course, I hear it doesn't run for long even when it runs...

You can safely ignore those errors - they're somewhat of a hack for BeOS - the Haiku runtime loader complains about them, but they're harmless.

The stubs was a trick to get round the limited addon memory (32MB for all apps) that BeOS had. Additional libs will be loaded to that memory, but by only loading stubs that were linked to the real libs none of that to limited memory was used.

If it don't find the stub library it loads the real library, which is ok under Haiku.

Btw IMO don't edit the startup-script. Repackage:

@TQH, umccullough

Thanks for the information. The launch must be failing after that, then. I don't suppose this debug output gives any clue?
