I'm new to this list. I'm trying to do some porting of Netsurf for newer
Atari Machines (Coldfire based).
Currently I'm doing an SDL-Framebuffer PoC port that compiles/ runs with
aranym ( Atari Virtual Machine ).
I have passed all libnsfb make test cases. The graphics show up.
I'm not that familiar with the hardware and I'm not familiar with SDL.
This is how it looks after running nsfb:
I did not try to debug/investigate why it only shows a black screen.
I hade the same result with x86-Linux X11-Framebuffer Port .
I have seen several postings about the same symptom. So maybe this is an
known Problem, and people can point me into the right direction.
Not just for solving the black screen problem, but about porting in general.
I'm targeting an native port of netsurf, but I would like to have an
working SDL-framebuffer port as "reference", before getting into native
Other problems when running the program:
- Input doesn't show up in the URL textfield. But events (I used the -v
option) show up when pressing keys.
- If I hit enter in the URL textfield, nothing seems to happen ( throbber
is not animated ) - I don't have the Virtual Machine connected to any
networks. But I thought, maybe it shows up Text in the Status bar or
something like that!? ( probably there are problems with font rendering?
- it often happens that the mouse cursor is not visible when moving the
cursor out of the browser window.
I'm willing to investigate these issues. But I thought I'll post this,
maybe you are interested and maybe someone is out there knowing about
these problems ( maybe the Amiga port people :) ).
