I posted a query about missing Startup sounds on the development list, and Pulkomandy replied:
There are several problems at play. The first is (was?) that sometimes the sound would play before Media Server is up and running, but this may be fixed by Launch Daemon changes and Barret’s current work on media server startup. (in BeOS, the Media Server itself played the startup sound, also when you restarted it from media preferences).
The other problem is some sound drivers don’t work at all with some cards (in that case obviously you get no startup sound), or they have a delay at startup before things start to run (sometimes up to an hour). This is an area where it seems the haiku dvs would appreciate some help.[/quote]
and Humdinger pointed out a couple of tickets already on the subject:
With #1902 , there’s a ticket almost as old as Haiku for it.
Another one is #6519 .
The second refers to a glitch that I’m getting too. Some triggers, like “Window Activated” or “Key Down” seem to be completely inactive.
Those folks who are getting problems might want to add to the first ticket.
