Funny behavior w/ VisiBroker LocationService

Funny behavior w/ VisiBroker LocationService

Post by Stefan Reic » Thu, 15 Oct 1998 04:00:00



Life is full of surprises with VisiBroker 3.3 LocationService on Sun
SPARC. Take a look at the code below.

I would have expected that the instance names in the "object" and the
"descriptor" section would be the same...Besides the fact that negative
port numbers rarely exists.

Is this a bug or a feature????

1. Funny soundcard behavior question

Not having any experience programming devices, I thought I'd post this
question here to get a poll of possible causes for a problem I've been
having.

I have soundcard X, supposedly SoundBlaster compatible.  The soundcard
behaves perfectly under DOS.  Previously, I had used the SB driver, only to
discover that the sound card started giving timeout errors (and thereby
failing to output/input sound) after a couple of minutes.  Then, after a
month or so, someone released a hacked driver for this particular card.
That worked much better, but the sound card would still fail, but now after
45 minutes.  A mere week or so after this, NeXT themselves released a
long-awaited driver for this sound card, and this I use currently.
However, now the soundcard fails after a couple of hours.

Is this a communication problem between the OS and the card?  Is a buffer
getting overfilled somewhere?  Is asynchronous messaging eventually failing
me?  What are the possible sources for these symptoms??

Thanks!
