Fixed bug #895 Markus Rothe 2009-12-07 09:32:46 PST Check if libspe2 is available Building on PowerPC64 results in: [...] In file included from ./src/video/ps3/SDL_ps3events_c.h:33, from ./src/video/ps3/SDL_ps3video.c:32: ./src/video/ps3/SDL_ps3video.h:34:21: error: libspe2.h: No such file or directory In file included from ./src/video/ps3/SDL_ps3events_c.h:33, from ./src/video/ps3/SDL_ps3video.c:32: ./src/video/ps3/SDL_ps3video.h:75: error: expected specifier-qualifier-list before 'spe_context_ptr_t' ./src/video/ps3/SDL_ps3video.c:78: error: expected '=', ',', ';', 'asm' or '__attribute__' before 'fb_writer_spu' ./src/video/ps3/SDL_ps3video.c: In function 'PS3_VideoInit': ./src/video/ps3/SDL_ps3video.c:167: error: 'spu_data_t' has no member named 'program' ./src/video/ps3/SDL_ps3video.c:167: error: 'fb_writer_spu' undeclared (first use in this function) [...] The problem is that the ps3 video driver is being build regardless if libspe2 is installed or not. The attached patch fixes this problem. [ Note: The other headers that are being checked for are coming from the linux headers package on powerpc64. As a result these are also available if you're on a generic powerpc64 machine and not a PS3 only. ]

Fixed bug #899 Jeremiah Morris 2009-12-09 16:23:50 PST Re-enable mouseLocation workaround on 10.4, 10.5 OS X systems before 10.6 have a bug with [NSEvent mouseLocation] if the screen resolution changes. SDL_QuartzVideo.m contains a workaround for this bug, but it was placed inside an #ifdef in revision 4762. The comment reads, "I'm gambling they fixed this by 10.4." After seeing this bug on several Tiger and Leopard systems (both PPC and Intel), I can confirm that it's not fixed until 10.6. The workaround doesn't compile for x86_64/10.6, so I can understand why it was segregated, but it needs to remain in place for the i386 and ppc versions. The workaround causes no problems under 10.6, even though it's not necessary there. Patch is attached with one method of keeping the workaround active on the systems that need it.

Fixed bug #896 John Popplewell 2009-12-08 23:05:50 PST Originally reported by AKFoerster on the mailing list. Error decoding UTF8 Russian text to UTF-16LE on Windows, but specifically on platforms without iconv support (the default on Windows). Valid UTF8 characters are flagged as being overlong and then substituted by the UNKNOWN_UNICODE character. After studying the testiconv.c example program, reading the RFCs and putting some printf statements in SDL_iconv.c the problem is in a test for 'Maximum overlong sequences', specifically 4.2.1, which is carried out by the following code: } else if ( p[0] >= 0xC0 ) { if ( (p[0] & 0xE0) != 0xC0 ) { /* Skip illegal sequences return SDL_ICONV_EILSEQ; */ ch = UNKNOWN_UNICODE; } else { if ( (p[0] & 0xCE) == 0xC0 ) { <<<<<<<< here overlong = SDL_TRUE; } ch = (Uint32)(p[0] & 0x1F); left = 1; } } else { Here is the 2-byte encoding of a character in range 00000080 - 000007FF 110xxxxx 10xxxxxx The line in question is supposed to be checking for an overlong sequence which would be less than 11000001 10111111 which should be represented as a single byte. BUT, the mask value (0xCE) is wrong, it isn't checking the top-most bit: 11000001 value 11001110 mask (incorrect) ^ and should be (0xDE): 11000001 value 11011110 mask (correct) making the above code: } else if ( p[0] >= 0xC0 ) { if ( (p[0] & 0xE0) != 0xC0 ) { /* Skip illegal sequences return SDL_ICONV_EILSEQ; */ ch = UNKNOWN_UNICODE; } else { if ( (p[0] & 0xDE) == 0xC0 ) { <<<<<<<< here overlong = SDL_TRUE; } ch = (Uint32)(p[0] & 0x1F); left = 1; } } else { I can supply a test program and/or a patch if required, best regards, John Popplewell

Fixed crash - need to save and restore rbx around cpuid, since the compiler may be assuming the stack pointer isn't being modified when filling in %0. I did it around each call to cpuid which isn't strictly necessary, but is definitely future proof. :)

Fixed bug #888 The OS/2 joystick code included an IBM header and was in violation of the license. Ryan may put this back someday with a legal header. :)

Fixed bugs #882 and 865, re-opening bug #634 Ronald Lamprecht to SDL Hi, Sam Lantinga wrote: The problem with that fix is that it breaks IME events again. Maybe we can handle keyboard events differently to prevent this issue? Spending an hour reading MSDN, analysing SDL and another hour testing the reality on XP I am really wondering how patch r4990 could have ever worked in any situation. It's main effect is to break the unicode translation and causing spurious activation events! Why does TranslateMessage(&msg) nothing useful? Simply because it does not affect "msg" at all! All keyboard events are dispatched without the slightest change (see MSDN). TranslateMessage() just appends additional WM_CHAR, WM_DEADCHAR, WM_SYSCHAR, WM_SYSDEADCHAR event messages to the queue. But I could not find any SDL event handling routine that catches these events and transforms them to proper SDL keyevents while eliminating the corresponding WM_KEYDOWN, etc. events. Thus any IME input like the '@' generated by "Alt + 6(Numpad) + 4(Numpad)" is simply lost. But the situation is even worse! Up to r4990 the TranslateKey()/ToUnicode() calls did evaluate dead keys and did deliver proper key events for subsequent key strokes like '´' + 'e' resulting in 'é'. ToUnicode() needs proper key state informations to be able to handle these substitutions. But unfortunatly TranslateMessage() needs the same state information and eats it up while generating the WM_CHAR messages :-( Thus the current 1.2.14 breakes the partial IME support of previous releases, too. The key state race condition between ToUnicode() and TranslateMessage() requires to avoid any ToUnicode() usage for receiving proper WM_CHAR, etc. messages generated by TranslateMessage(). (Yes - the '@' and 'é' appear as WM_CHAR messages when unicode is switched off). The spurious SDL activation events are *not* caused by additional WM_ACTIVATE Windows messages! Besides DIB_HandleMessage() SDL_PrivateAppActive() is called by another source which I am not yet aware of - any hints? Thus I do strongly recommend the deletion of the TranslateMessage(&msg) call as a quick fix. A proper support of unicode and IME requires a clean SDL keyboard input concept first. Which SDL keyboards events should be transmitted to the app when the user presses '´' + 'e' ? Within the current unicode handling the first key stroke is hidden. Even though ToUnicode() delivers the proper key SDL does ignore it in TranslateKey(). Just the composed key event is transmitted to the app. That is what you expect for text input, but the app can no longer use keys like '^' as a key button because it will never receive a key event for it! With a given concept it seems to be necessary to regenerate SDL key events out of the WM_CHAR, etc. events and to drop all related direct WM_KEYDOWN, etc. events while the remaining basic WM_KEYDOWN, etc. events would still have to result in SDL key events. Anyway the source of the spurious WM_ACTIVATE should be located to avoid future trouble. Greets, Ronald

Gregory Smith Another one for the "How did this ever work?" file: when DX5_HandleMessage is called with WM_ACTIVATEAPP, it goes past the end of the 2-element SDL_DIdev array and if there doesn't happen to be a 0 in the memory next to it, crashes. Patch against SVN attached.
