I Entered the folowing lines into the Input-Window: ----------- I'm writing this under the impressions of loading an old 486 Notebook with 8 Meg's ram with Debian-unstable. <br> As the package - Database grows and grows, the amount of Memory needed to handle it also gets larger. <br> The unstable-Package-Database didn't fit into the poorly measured amount of memory this machine owns -> It had consistantly swap parts of the dpkg-programm out to his swap Partition.<br> A single dpkg-call (independent on wether to list, install or remove one or more Packages) took about 30 minutes, which made the wholy setup procedure a task of more than one day.... <br><br> But: here is the Idea that came to me:<br> It is very often that we come into a situation, that a machine is overloaded with the task of hanling it's own package-database (take things like <ul> <li>the old 486 firewalling you from the nasty big internet</li> <li>the little machine feeding your laser-printer</li> <li> the old Dec-Station you use as X-Terminal</li> <li> the second partition you keep on your Disk to create boot-CD's</li> <li> the embedded-machine to control your washing machine </li> <li> and last (but surely not least) your PDA ).</li> </ul> So: why not distribute the Truck-load of work to machine that would do this in spare-time, like your Desktop >GHzCpu equipped with 100Megs's of ram?<br><br> There would have to be something like a net-shared Filesystem on the Slave-machine to be hooked into the Master-machine, and sort of a Deamon executing the post-install scripts and so on. (ssh?) <br><br> And now to the Boot - CD-Thing: what about a Plex-86 running the target-installation in non-X mode? ----------------- if you place your Text-cursor and move it beyond the Text visible at first sight, go to the end of a row and press Enter. now parts of the Text vanish, but reapear if you go on with typing. allso selecting the text with the mouse and moving up and down produces some verry strange ocurancies.
I've seen this also, when submitting information on the mandrakeforum http://www.mandrakeforum.com site. Also, when scrolling through the text pressing the down arrow the cursor will go to the end of the text but not always be visible as being there. If I scroll through the text with the forward arrow, the cursor goes to the end of the text and then moves to the start of the text rather than stopping at the end of the text.
This appears to be solved with the latest Textarea fixes. Reporter, can you please reproduce this on a current nightly please? I'd like to mark this WFM.
well, lets see. ok, the scrollbar appears, as I type the first letter, its size is correct, and its collor is like the theme says, this is cool! as I type on nothing strange happens so far, but I Have to now I Paste some text type now I Paste some text some more now I Paste some text text now I Paste some text to get now I Paste some text it scrolling. now I move the Cursor Up, And down again, and, just a minute it seems to work well.now I Paste some text Ah, I don't know if it's just me, but it seems like pasting text after receiving Focus back doesn't calc the right line, could you check that? Pop up an XTerm on another Desk, Navigator in Full-Screen, zap back to the Navigator Desk, and place the mouse-cursor over the text-box, and paste. The text doesn't always hit the box on the line corrosponding to the mouse cursor. man, there is something more strange remaining. Position the Cursor on the line start at the End of the Text, move up to the top, move back down, try to move on left, and ZAP! you're back at the top... But, good work though.
well, lets see. ok, the scrollbar appears, as I type the first letter, its size NO, IT APPEARS AS IT'S NEEDED. is correct, and its collor is like the theme says, this is cool! as I type on nothing strange happens so far, but I Have to now I Paste some text type some more text to getnow I Paste some text it scrolling. now I move the Cursor Up, And down again, and, just a minute it seems to work well.now I Paste some text oh wait, there is something strange. If I paste text, go at the end of It,(the Cursor remains in the same Line) and start typing something, and the Cursor and my new Text zap instantly into the next line, way of strange. The next thingnow I Paste some text is, The wood-measuremets on the scroll-Tumbs turned by 90 degrees. Oh, WAIT, THIS WAS THE WRON BROWSER-WINDOW! I'm sorry. Forget about the Cut+Paste-Issue. Allso the Cursor-Navigation works well, but wait, <Page UP/DOWN> doesn't move the Cursor! Just the scroll-bar. But One thing: How is the Size of the Area calculated? there Is some Nasty 3 pixel wide rest of Text, shouldn't be only full lines drawn?
