I can't see anything wrong in ami_libs_close but I may have now found and fixed the CreateIORequest and startup LONG WRITE etc hits.

Hits are still seen with the latest version here. On a sidenote: the archive properly extracts with 68k lha now ;)

I've rebuilt it with the above fixes and -ggdb instead of -gstabs.  I'm not convinced it will help.

Tried some various things with addr2line here, no luck though :-\ Unless someone is willing to help out to get proper debugging in place, I don't think it's very useful to test further if you can't exactly pinpoint the location where things get messy.

*EDIT: perhaps possible addtional interesting information can be found on the following locations:

Thank you Chris for you effort to get Netsurf work. It has been really close to be usefull with REAL amigas, no other browser wich displays pages that that well is anywhere near of that.

It looks like -g might be better than -ggdb or -gstabs

Jeah, could be... on yet another site I can see the following statement though:
Quote
GCC has many flags to specify the kind of debugging information to be included in the binary, including -g, -ggdb, -gstabs and -gstabs+. The only flag which is recommended for use on AmigaOS is -gstabs. So, whenever you wish to create a binary with debugging information, you should add "-gstabs". Other ones may or may not work, but to avoid any issues just use "-gstabs". The same is true if you want to just use "addr2line" to find the address of a crash from a stack trace.
(taken from https://wiki.amigaos.net/wiki/GDB_for_Beginners, but I believe you tried this already)

Argh  ;)

What are you using as environment to get a m68k binary?

Linux cross-compiler. gcc 3.4.6
Built from http://git.netsurf-browser.org/toolchains.git/tree/m68k-unknown-amigaos

You may want to check out Bebbo's gcc 6.5 cross-compiler?

Unfortunately for me this new version did change nothing (Amiga1200 with Blizzard 1230 und OS3.9):
- runs stable but still far too slow
- cannot access https-sites (amiga-news.de, howsmyssl)
- crashes after quitting the program

Anyway, thanks for your efforts! Please continue developing!

Are you sure you're using the right version (from the cy2 link - won't have a CI build number in about. You can also look at about:testament to check - it's built by me, from a branch called chris/amissl)

Chris, thank you so much for your hard work! I just downloaded it and will test it on my A4000 - '060 with RTG graphics. I will report back any issues.

Oh... It uses Reaction so it needs 3.5 or 3.9 to work. I understand. I can use it on my WinUAE session and A1200, but my AmigaOS 3.1.4 is out of the question. Bummer. I was looking forward to using it on my fast machine.

If you got access to OS3.9 files there is a nice 'trick' to keep ReAction stuff separated from the OS3.1.4 install. Here for instance I'm 'abusing' SYS:Expansion for that. Expansion is normally not used for these kind of things, but I don't see any strange effects and you can use whatever place you want as an assign is used also. These are the contents of SYS:Expansion/ReAction here:

And you have AmiSSL 4.3 installed?

Of course. I installed it just before your new version. But Netsurf could not access https-sites even with AmiSSL 4.2 which was installed before. YAM and IBrowse work fine.
