Fixed in r. 55649. Thanks.

I can't find a way to update OPM inside OPM. Isn't that a rather obvious feature?

You're patching trunk. That's fine, but 1.8 is what people will be using, not trunk, so they need to be able to see that an update for OPM is available.

In the Create repository package dialog, there's something wrong with the focus. If I click in the lower (blank) panel, then I can click the folder button only once to bring up the selection dialog. I use this all the time, so it works fine on Mac, just not in OPM.

Also, in the dialog, the Cancel button should not be at the far right. See Apple guidelines for the default button placement.

Hi,

Thanks to Juha Manninen finally lazarus is fully package happy with me. One should use "startlazarus" and not "lazarus-ide" to start the ide.

May I ask how many time it take to a package be included in the OPM list? Is there any addition protocol out there?

Thanks

Hi guys,

Sorry for the late response, I was out from the office for a few days.

Yes and no. It was possible in the past to update OPM inside OPM, but sometimes trunk development breaks code. I will add the feature again.

I will address those issues next week. What about the other ones? Can you see the Authors, Descriptions? Is it a bug?

Ok. I'm glad it's working.  :)

Usually 24 h. max. Just create a repository package and send it via OPM. Please read more here: http://wiki.freepascal.org/Online_Package_Manager#Create_repository_package

Do you use some kind of theme manager? I never saw OPM that ugly  :D. Next week, I will add a new dialog where the user can choose colors.  Can you please post a few screenshot with other lazarus dialogs? Options for example, or Install/Uninstall packages.

I am using the default openbox theme of BunsenLabs Hydrogen distro + a custom Monokai userscheme for lazarus.

Hello getmem, nice work you are doing with OPM, it is very well appreciated.
I did submit an update to an existing package in OPM through the OPM interface over 48 hrs ago but it has not been updated on the package list.
Just wanted to inform you incase you are not aware.
The package name is HashLib.
Regards.

I see I can install the Online Package Manager on arm-linux now? Can I safely do it? Otherwise it needs to be disabled for arm-linux because of the virtual treeview intel assembler used....

That (the virtual treeview) is a silly piece of code when less than ~1000 packages are available, so either disable the package for anything else than intel or FIX it... >:D >:(

OTOH I really like OPM (on windows that is....) O:-)

@GetMem
This somewhat works, but is not fully correct... Test for not intel instruction set e.g. CPU386/X64 should be false. Haven't time today to make a complete fix.
Suggest to reverse the logic and it should look ok.
Code: Pascal  [Select]
  1. {$else}
  2.  
  3. function HasMMX: Boolean;
  4.  
  5. // Helper method to determine whether the current processor supports MMX.
  6. {$if defined(CPUARM) }
  7. result := false;
  8. {$else}
  9. asm
  10.         PUSH    EBX
  11.         XOR     EAX, EAX     // Result := False
  12.         PUSHFD               // determine if the processor supports the CPUID command
  13.         POP     EDX
  14.         MOV     ECX, EDX
  15.         XOR     EDX, $200000
  16.         PUSH    EDX
  17.         POPFD
  18.         PUSHFD
  19.         POP     EDX
  20.         XOR     ECX, EDX
  21.         JZ      @1           // no CPUID support so we can't even get to the feature information
  22.         PUSH    EDX
  23.         POPFD
  24.  
  25.         MOV     EAX, 1
  26.         DW      $A20F        // CPUID, EAX contains now version info and EDX feature information
  27.         MOV     EBX, EAX     // free EAX to get the result value
  28.         XOR     EAX, EAX     // Result := False
  29.         CMP     EBX, $50
  30.         JB      @1           // if processor family is < 5 then it is not a Pentium class processor
  31.         TEST    EDX, $800000
  32.         JZ      @1           // if the MMX bit is not set then we don't have MMX
  33.         INC     EAX          // Result := True
  34. @1:
  35.         POP     EBX
  36. {$endif}
  37. end;

@Thaddy
The main problem is I don't have ARM-linux to test. Maybe a virtual machine? You should remove any HasMMX reference(like you did in the above example with ifdef) and build OPM. VirtualStringTree should work without MMX. Send me a patch and I will more then happy to apply it.

PS: The number of tasks I have it's overwhelming.

Ok.
This patch is half... but it works... I'll create a better one later, but people can at least test on arm: works!

Please attach the patch file, because my tortoise svn don't like copy/paste.  You can zip-it if you like.
