curl needs a rebuild on ATOM based machines

Description

curl randomly fails to download/upload content from web on atom based machines [checked on MSI Wind / EI SYSTEM notebook/laptop]. Its the curl fault that Web+ cannot log to twitter #5939 and cannot send any app submission to haikuware [i didnt create a ticket for it , yet..]. Its curl fault that HaikuTwitter randomly logs and downloads new tweets in HaikuTwitter app. More often just download nothing..

I double checked it with Martin H.P. [HaikuTwitter app author] that its 100% curl fault, so it needs to be rebuilt again on atom based machine.

Any of You ATOM based netbook users experienced it?

Sounds scary: Are you saying that cURL behaves differently depending on which x86 processor it was built on? I guess building on a multitude of processors to fix an issue on one but maybe introduce one for another is out of the question.

Or maybe you mean, you need a new version of cURL built, with a bugfix? It's pretty easy to build yourself iirc. If you could tell which version you need there would be much less guesswork involved.

These are my thoughts after many different tests with different hardware. I cannot verify in in 100% as long as somebody with atom based netbook tries to check this aswell..

Curl is an OptionalPackage and issues with those should be reported to HaikuPorts. If you have an ATOM machine you can install HaikuPorter and then run haikuporter -i curl to build it. It'll display the versions available, then pick the most recent one and type haikuporter -i curl-x.y.z where x.y.z is the latest version. If that then works for you, can you then run haikuporter -c -d curl-x.y.z and email me the resulting zip file?

Im afraid this is more complex problem :/. Today i did a reinstalation of fresh nightly and i was started to using a arora [i didnt installed curl and WebPositive], and i found that uploading attachments to dev.haiku-os.org / imageshack.us / tinypic and even rapidshare not work. The strannge thing is: arora and all other qt based apps are not using a curl.. so its something wrong with system then.. I didnt saw so much problems on A1R1 as far as i remember.

And just to clear: everything in all browsers works [loading pages / downloading apps / and so on..], but uploading files via webpage scripts and posting a messages [for example posting new topic on HaikuWare] now work.

Any ideas.. ?

Can you reproduce this issue on a clean install *without* Qt installed?

Resolution: invalid
Status: newclosed

Need a better description of this issue. I doubt it has anything to do with ATOM based machines or Curl. If you are still having this issue with the latest nightly builds without qt installed, please open a new ticket.
