But now onto the next crash!

Instead then I go to 'SYS:Prefs' and run Wanderer prefs.

Here are my steps:
- Prefs
- Wanderer
- Appearance
- Drawer / Advanced
- Default View Mode
- Change to 'All Files'
- Click 'Use'

Immediate result Software Failure as per attached screenshots.



I finally discovered the root cause: there's something Wanderer prefs program does not like in Icaros settings. In order to fix the issue, just move global.prefs from envarc:sys/Wanderer to a safe location and restart Icaros. Wanderer will be 'reset' but, at least, you will be able to set your preferences for desktop and windows as you wish.

I could reproduce the issue taking the default global.prefs from current nightly build and, option by option, replace all default settings with the Icaros ones. In the end, I was not able to switch icons only/all files anymore without triggering the system error. I have not isolated the culprit option, though.

I noticed that default Icaros options saved a 820k global.prefs file, while nightly builds one is 915k big. My guess is that enabling some option 'trunkates' this file to a lesser size and, once saved and loaded at startup, Wanderer prefs file cannot handle it correctly anymore.

There is a number of unfixed issues with more detailed Wanderer prefs. Particularly endian Problems with Reading some entries. I kniw a Part of Locations but i didnt come uo with a proper fixes. Your issue would haveprobably have to be debugged in depth, as it cant just be an endian One.

It is my intention to setup an ABI_v0 build environment so that I can backport the keyboard map that I did to it but right now I still have real problems with hosted full stop so I need to cure those issues first.

Once I've got a usable environment I can look into debugging it myself. Having looked through the code for the input prefs, I'd say t looks manageable and might be a task I could cope with. Right now life is also getting in the way as well however!



[EDIT] Oh, PS: Thank you for still looking into it even!

i could guide you a bit through what i have discovered if i still remember it. it would anyway need to be fixed in abi v1 first, then backpoted. at least i can indicate some places where bad things happen. unfortunately my attempts if fixing the endian macros have not succeeded, im not sure why. then i have given up on that.

I forgot that it does this under ABI_v1 as well!

Yes, so i need to pull my finger out and work out why my environment is so unstable. That's kind of a blocker on anything and everything at the moment.

I have VMWare and a USB-C HDD at the ready, I just need time now.
