Well, this afternoon the UK Be User Group had it's first get together in Guildford! not bad given how long it's been around, but it was a good afternoon and worthwhile.
During the get together I was persuaded to change the build mechanism of the GDK code I've been hacking to use Be native projects and the BeIDE as this makes a lot of Be developers happier than the more conventional unix build mechanism. I'm hoping that this will give the effort a small jolt and get some of the work done. Once it's done we can them move back to the Makefiles and the normal build mechanism. Well, having done all that I've actually made the files available for people to hack at, so here's hoping a few people will contribute some code!
I've added some code to the BeOS MPM that gets it exiting correctly and it tries to restart gracefully, but it dies at some point with no error, but I think it's segfaulting so it'll be time to debug again soon. Of course if the be debugger would work it'd be a quicker job! Might have to get a copy of a newer gdb and have a go with that as it sometimes works better for this sort of thing.
The course goes well and I'm looking forward to escaping the classroom after next week to start the next stage of training.
Well, time for sleep!
