got it installed at last but usbcontrol complains about newlib.library not being 52.20 and there is no lib of this type in LIBS: nor in the base.lha.

I have noticed the newlib.kmod and it is in my kicklayout file, so where is this newlib.library ?

@lionstorm,

Just a thought, but did you cold reboot? The new kick files need to be loaded and a warm reset won't do that.

Cheers,
Bean.

yes cold reboot and even on/off my A1 !!!

it is very strange : the new newlib.library.kmod from 28june2007 is in kickstart but when I type version newlib.library -> version 52.3

so I dont know from where comes this 52.3 version and why the one in the kickstart drawer is not taken

I have triple boot os4final/upd4/linux but the kickstart drawer for upd4 does not contain any newlib.library.kmod

is it a conflict with the SDK ? EDIT : no

@hatschi

Don't worry, I never take him too seriously.

I merely wanted to follow it up; I just wanted to know which feature he meant, that's all!

(And now people quickly speculates that "maybe that blowing-away feature wasn't even present in this release", so I guess we are back at the *never-ending* carrot dangling process (that seems to draw energy from itself to fuel its perpetuum mobile drive) from the "people behind the scenes" (maybe the Mystery Feature will only be in the Mystery OS release for the Mystery Device? ))

Anyway, I'm glad to see that they continue the OS development during these troublesome times. The *developers* does not deserve the situation their OS is in, and I hope there will be a solution in the end that benefits them. Who knows, maybe some day the OS will be available to the public beyond old A1 owners, and there will be some reward for them? I hope so. And in the meantime it's good to see that new functionality is added, beside plain bugfixes. Mind-blowing or not, I think all improvements are welcome!

finally it is working !!!

I never realised my kicklayout was taken from my previous update4 partition (even if there is a drawer for os4final and an entry in kicklayout for os4final) and not from my os4final partition

just had to change partition priority and now usbctrl does not complain !

again thanks to everyone involved in this update :

Context is everything.

I was sparring with redrumloa and was replying to this bit he said at the time:
Quote:
My remarks weren't necessarily that development was at a dead standstill, just that remarks like "Things are great, I just can't tell you!" make the hair stick up on the back of my neck.

Of course he responded in kind and we had a good laugh about it.

Seems I'm a lot better at fishing than I thought...

Well, the Python module and stack protection changes are for sure quite useful for the porting people.


Well, both are useful for anybody not only porting. The stack issue is omnipresent, if you have a program that uses a lot of stack you may run out of it and crash. At least this now crashes immediately, not only after the program has overwritten half of your memory.

Python is a universal scripting language, and as such it will eventually replace and/or exist next to AREXX. We are planning a language-neutral scripting host for a future update, so Python is a good choice.

are there any plans to make shared objects the "official" library model and leave .library files for backwards compatibility only?


No, since they do not fulfill the same purpose. shared objects can't share data per se, that is a functionality that you would have to implement yourself. Shared libraries do that automatically...

The shared objects are really mostly meant for porting...

is it ok if I unpack with dopus and overwrite everything ?


Yes, you can just simply unpack the archive in your sys partition.

I'm surprised though, I had heard that the installer hung for one tester after it unpacked the update, but never before that...

anyway, just unpack it but take care to preserve file attributes and paths.

newlib.library.kmod is loaded via kicklayout, so you should have a line

"MODULE Kickstart/newlib.library.kmod"

in you sys:kickstart/kicklayout file... If not, you're missing an update, probably.

You can add the line manually, though...

Another question, if I may: ELF shared objects are now officially part of the OS; given that they are in many ways better than amiga .library files, are there any plans to make shared objects the "official" library model and leave .library files for backwards compatibility only?


For the moment, there are no plans to have shared objects replace libraries.
