Amiga Software News / Re: NetSurf 3.9 web browser released
« Last post by NovaCoder on August 21, 2019, 02:06:41 AM »
I recently compiled NetSurf 3.9 on Linux and it was pretty bloody slow even on my PC so maybe the problem is that NetSurf has simply got too much for low powered machines?   

Unfortunately this tends to happen with large open source projects as more features are added it becomes harder to run ports on older machines, ScummVM is a good example of this (try running version 2.1 on an 030!).

I appreciate your AmigaOS porting efforts Chris  8)

Yes, the render.library did the trick :) Thanks... The Errormessage allways said, that guigfx.library is missing.... but after installing render.library everthing is working....

That's because guigfx needs render but NetSurf only needs guigfx, it doesn't know about render.

but extreamly slow! 3.7 is 4 times faster....

The source code is available if somebody actually wants to try fixing this issue rather than just whinging about it on a forum.

As it happens, it appears that I've used -m68020 everywhere and although I don't recall changing this, at some point in the past I'm fairly sure I used one of the more compatible options.

I just did multiple double clicks of the CMD icon (i.e. enable/disable/enable/disable, etc), and eventually got the hit.  This is with MULTIPLE=TRUE and NOTIFY=TRUE tooltypes and FILE=ram:CMD_file
See above.  This hit is coming from a FreeEntry() call which releaes 18 bytes of memory from an AllocEntry() call of a corresponding size. There is no place in the CMD executable nor in the operating system where 18 bytes are allocated via AllocEntry() during the exeuction of a binary. In fact, AllocEntry() is not used by CMD at all, but only by Create(New)Proc of the Os, and there only with 20 bytes (for the seglist array) and not with 18 bytes.

I cannot reproduce this here. Hence, this is due to some other patch, hack or modification of the operating system. I cannot fix what does not come from Os components.

Thomas, thanks for checking this.   I wasn't tracing my steps carefully enough.  Enabling/Disabling CMD multiple times alone does not cause the hit as I originally posted.  I tried that alone and did not see it.   It is only after I do the "ECHO >PRT:" below and then remove CMD redirection that I get the hit.


1) Set these options in the ToolTypes for CMD:
MULTIPLE=TRUE
NOTIFY=TRUE
FILE=ram:CMD_
2) Double click CMD in workbench to install redirection.
3) In shell do this, ECHO >PRT: "Test"
4) Double click on "CMD" icon in workbench.  This will of course remove it.  It is at this point that I get the hit.


Could you check one more time if this is making any more sense or if you can reproduce?  I don't have any known patches in my system (just running LockSmith, MuForce, and MuGa).

Is this for a collection?

The tec of bigfoot networks never gained any serious widespread use...

I swapped a GFX card for half the price of the killer and increased the same amount of FPS as expected from them. running a P4 3200Mhz in 2006.
Upgrading my system to a core 2 quad increased the fps and overall system performance BY A FAR.....

C, D and Python, in that order.

Further down the list, I probably like Javascript better than most, and Java somewhat less.

     In 2009, Commodore Business Machines engineer Dave Haynie visited the Commodore Vegas Expo.  He came in during the Friday set-up, stayed with us throughout Saturday and Sunday, and as we were taking down the equipment on Sunday night, he gave us an impromptu jamming session on his guitar!  Here is video taken of that concert, a video that premiered at this year's CommVEx.

four times was just a "Feeling". I Checked with Startpage of a1k.org ... in 3.7 it Needs 18 Seconds in 3.9 60,2.. so 4 times is not that much incorrect.... And on this page there is nothing Special....

trackdisk wasn't changed for 3.1.4, and as far as CMD is concerned, I cannot reproduce this here. The hit comes from a call into AllocEntry()/FreeEntry(), and neither of the two are called by CMD itself. The dos.library calls them when initializing a new process, but the size of the allocation does not fit the size the dos.library uses. So this comes from somewhere else. If you run MuGA, please try to reproduce the CMD issue, but for MuGA, add to the command line "STACKCHECK STACKLINES=32" to get a larger stack dump.

I just did multiple double clicks of the CMD icon (i.e. enable/disable/enable/disable, etc), and eventually got the hit.  This is with MULTIPLE=TRUE and NOTIFY=TRUE tooltypes and FILE=ram:CMD_file

For the PC0 stack, I did see 2048 stack in xoper when having the mount file set to 600 - so yeah the auto is working.
