BAD & GOOD news for InForm on Debian 8 & 9.
« on: December 04, 2018, 12:12:38 AM »
Hi Fellippe,

I've just ran my multi lingual install script on a baremetal system (my iMac 27 with an i7 and 32 Gb of RAM) with both Debian 8 and Debian 9 in live sessions and here are the results.

1) The BAD news is that the current InForm Beta 8 has the same problem on a baremetal system than on a VM, and to be honest I didn't expected anything else since I mainly use VMware Fusion for all my VMs and not VirtualBox (that has so many problems).

2) But the GOOD news is that the two fixes you sent me (UiEditor.bas and UiEditorPreview.bas) work like a charm on my baremetal system exactly as they do on Vms.

So, you found and fixed the problem for Debian 8 & 9 and you can add your modifications right now without holding them for your next beta.

BTW, do you want I try with other older Debian releases (i.e. 6 or 7 that are not supported anymore) ?

Hope this helps.

Cheers.
Fifi

Hi Fellippe,

Do you plan to modify your two files (UiEditor.bas and UiEditorPreview.bas) soon or should I modify my install script and provide these two files as a temporary work arround when my script detects Debian 8 or Debian 9 to avoid te problem?

TIA.

I'll do some more testing first to find a better solution. The temporary hack I provided you is not the best approach.

Hi Fellippe,

Thanx for your response.

BTW, don't hesitate to send me other solutions to test both on baremetal PCs and VMs since I'm so gald to help.

Cheers.
