Re: Linux Framebuffer

Experimented a bit with different old and new Linux VMs: A current install of Debian 10 in VMware or VirtualBox provided a framebuffer device by default (no extra configuration necessary), but it always triggered errors (either app segfaulting or even kernel errors). An older Debian 8 install on Vir...

Re: Linux Framebuffer

fbgfx supports the framebuffer device, however I don't think that you can create a fbgfx application with FreeBasic that does not depend on X libraries by default. If you run a fbgfx application not within a X environment but from a terminal it will use the framebuffer (if available). Unfortunately ...

Re: Where can I get a Recent-Git-Build of FreeBASIC?

Thanks for the hint, the machine ran out of disk space. I've cleaned up some space so that it should work now again. A documentation build will be triggered when a new change is detected (from now on again). (Change history is queried using the RSS feed XML: https://freebasic.net/wiki/wikka.php?wakk...

Re: Where can I get a Recent-Git-Build of FreeBASIC?

For now it seems to be read-only (at least FTP access doesn't work yet for me), so probably still some more days to go until documentation & compiler builds get updated again.

planned maintenance.

in short: it gets more storage space, better performance and the latest OS and should be available again soon

Re: FreeBASIC 1.08 Development

This weekend I took the time to update a few bindings (headers for 3rd party libraries) shipped with FreeBasic. Luckily dkl has provided us a great tool which drastically simplifies binding creation called "fbfrog" (https://github.com/dkl/fbfrog). Beside that there's a repository with fbfr...

Re: FreeBASIC 1.08 Development

re TDM: build works again, thank you.

re new file functions: any reason why the function is called fileTruncate in the changelog and fileSetEOF in the wiki?

Re: FreeBASIC 1.08 Development

I don't know if it's of any importance, but some recent commit on master broke the TDM-GCC build. CC src/rtlib/obj/win32/file_htruncate.o In file included from src/rtlib/win32/file_htruncate.c:4:0: d:\tdm-gcc-32\include\unistd.h:41:20: error: unknown type name 'off_t' int ftruncate(int, off_t);

Re: FreeBASIC 1.07 Release Discussion

wow, what a lot of different packages for various platforms. Thanks a lot coderJeff for all the effort you put into this.

There are now some dedicated packages for certain Ubuntu LTS versions - what system are the default (generic) linux binary packages built on?

Re: FreeBASIC 1.07 Release Discussion

Thanks for your detailed answers. [...]The manual part is that I have a VM for each system that I boot and refresh the build scripts from a LAN based repo, then run the build process on each system. I can recommend Jenkins with the VirtualBox pugin to automate that. That's the environment I'm using ...

Re: FreeBASIC 1.07 Release Discussion

How does your build pipeline look like? A current 64-bit FreeBSD fbc build can be found here, in case you want to avoid bootstrapping manually: http://users.freebasic-portal.de/stw/builds/freebsd64/ Older 32-bit FreeBSD builds can also be found there (the cross-build is currently broken), should als...

Re: St_W builds

The GNU tools binaries (as, ld, gcc) usually don't change for a long period of time,thus you could simply copy over the new FreeBasic build into your existing fbc-nightly installation folder (overwriting existing files) if you have set it up once. What I thought I could be doing to improve the situa...

Re: St_W builds

You're right. GCC is not included in the win32 builds, only in the win64 ones (because win32 defaults to gen gas while win64 defaults to gen gcc). No change here in recent months. The main reason for not including GCC is its size, which increases the size of the ZIP und thus the storage space needed...
