haiku with patented code enabled boots to white screen

Reported by: the ringmaster Owned by: nobody

Has a Patch: no Platform: x86


I tried compiling a gcc 4 hybrid image that had the "--include-patented-code" flag enabled and upon boot all I get is a white screen. There appears to be a mouse on the screen too.

Can anyone confirm this bug?

notes: I also included the -j5 flag in the ./configure line as I have a quad core processor..

Iirc outside Haiku -j >1 is not deemed safe. You could try cleaning and rebuilding without -j and check whether it makes any difference.

this bug can be closed. I know now that you have to use jam -qa on the sources whenever you change your configure options to make sure that everything knows about the change.
