TLDR: >>>> https://github.com/deadwood2/AROS/labels/IBOTM <<<<

Here were are with another IBOTM! We continue with bug-fixing fun!

PS. If there are additional bugs that irritate you, but they are not yet > the bug tracker, please report them in the release support thread. They might make it to the voting in following months!

General rules are simple:

1) Bugs are selected from bugs reported > bug tracker
2) There is a poll made and community selects one bug from suggested bugs
3) I fix the bug.
4) Wait until next month; Go To 1;

The initial list of bugs will be related to ABIv0 i386 or ABIv11 x86_64. In effect bugs specific to m68k AROS or any other AROS flavor won't be added to poll options. Bugs can be in either AROS core system or in Contrib package. Bugs need to be reproducible on clean system releases, so bugs visible only on distributions won't be included.

Regarding Bug #136, I noticed that the "S" flag is set on some files by the Startup-sequence after the first reboot, so done fixing then you can delete these strings!

@AMIGASYSTEM - Regarding Bug #136, I noticed that the "S" flag is set on some files by the Startup-sequence after the first reboot, so done fixing then you can delete these strings!

I don't think this will be possible. These files on ISO image won't have the S flag, so if the commands are removed from Startup-Sequence, then they will never get these flags on HDD.

And we have a tie this month!

To resolve that I did a flip of the coin the and winner is #125 - so this bug will be fixed in May.

As for #140 it will then automatically be selected as June's bug.

Hi All,

Here is a patch to test for May's bug:

It should solve both problem listed in the bug: opening a non-existing drawer and copying to it.

Note: this patch assumes you already have 20220318-1-U1 update installed.

Please test bahaviors around "opening" for regression.
