It's finally here, the much improved openSuSE 11.3 release. And I have to say that the team behind it have done a fantastic job!

I've upgraded my main desktop to run the new OS and as usuall, the ATI prop. driver isn't updated to support the new kernel shipped with openSuSE 11.3. But no worries, a work around has already been published AND it allows you to download a pre-built RPM both for x32 and x64.

Compact Framework & Adding reference to System * problem

SneWs's picture

We've been having some problems with Compact Framework and referencing assemblies from the 3.5 release. The problem shows during compile time with a nice message like "Consider app.config remapping of assembly "System.Data, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=969db8053d3322ac, Retargetable=Yes" from Version "2.0.0.0" [] to Version "3.5.0.0" [c:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft.NET\SDK\CompactFramework\v3.5\WindowsCE\System.Data.dll] to solve the conflict and get rid of all warnings."

NAUTIZ X5 - Camera Tweeks

SneWs's picture

The team ran into some problems using the C# CameraCaptureDialog class for taking pictures with the Compact Framework. When calling the ShowDialog() method it throws a OutOfMemoryException and the user is unable to capture a image.

To solve this problem, we tried to set the properties for Resolution and StillQuality for the CameraCaptureDialog but still no dice. It turns out that the OEM can force the settings written to the registry to override any properties applied for the CameraCaptureDialog class.

Disable Fault Tolerant Heap (FTH)

SneWs's picture

This only applies to Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2.
Snip from MSDN on what FTH is:
The Fault Tolerant Heap (FTH) is a subsystem of Windows 7 responsible for monitoring application crashes and autonomously applying mitigations to prevent future crashes on a per application basis. For the vast majority of users, FTH will function with no need for intervention or change on their part. However, in some cases, application developers and software testers may need to override the default behavior of this system.

openSUSE 11.2 with ATI graphics

SneWs's picture

I ran into some problems while setting up my openSUSE 11.2 x64 system using ATI graphics. The problems occurs during the install and configuration of ATI's proprietary driver.

First of, you must enable POSIX shared memory, since this is not enabled by default in openSUSE. (At least not in my case).$[BREAK]$

Please note that this guide is intended for x86_x64 only. It might work for x32 as well if you mod the pre-requisite part.

SneWs's picture

OK, I've manage to spend some time with the MySQL connection framework for Obj-C and a new release have been made public.

This release will support standard query handling such as SELECT, INSERT, UPDATE, and DELETE. The result will be handled properly and you will be able to access it with column name and/or index etc... All the normal stuff one would expect.

mysql-for-obj-c - Current state

SneWs's picture

The project is coming along great. We have the base functionality in place, tested and mostly working.

This weekend, I've planned to complete the STMT support for parametrized queries and start to write a little test application that uses the library to do some admin stuff as a proof of concept.

From what I've gathered from Tony, my partner in crime for this project, he's going to come up with a plan for the Core Data integration, I'm excited to see what he comes up with.
