some bugs

Hello FIASCO people,

here are some more bugs (yes, it is possible :)).

First of all,
when you press shift+print-screen (or control+print-screen, don't
remember what bugs), everything blocks with a message that i forgot
to write or that i've lost (i am in exams, my brain becomes a little
strange, i forget things).
If one could tried it to see if it happens on others machines.
Note: it was before i applied path3 and patch4, so maybe it solves
the problem. It might be a sigfault in a cli section, but nothing
is sure.

i could run koules with svgalib !! but, a program of mine don't
work. If someone could try it to see if it's my machine or what ?
available at :
and a binary is provided at :
If you could try it with a clean linux to see what should be
the correct behavior, then try it with fiasco.
It's just a poor animation with some sound (maybe sound is necessary for it
to behave bad, don't know).
When i run it under fiasco, it runs a little, then it blocks, so i press
ctrl+c, that nornmally should end up the program and give me back the
shell, but not, it just continues a little more, and stops again, and so on
until the end of the program.
Then i see a lot of "Aiee: scheduling in interrupt 00422ba (activ 10000)"
with sometimes a 0 in place of the 10000.
This works too with patch3, i don't have put patch4, but don't think
it is relevent.
And when i press Esc, it simply reboots.

Third, but it was before patch3,
i ran through my hd, making ls, cat, rm and so on, and at one time,
after a ls, and before the result being displayed, i receive this message
"page fault in signal handler". Maybe patch3 fixes that, huh ?

And last, i normally have shift+page-up to see last lines, but it does
not works under fiasco (maybe kernel 2.0.21 doesn't handle it anyway).
Little problem, but problem.

I soon gonna be able to debug with a second machine, so my next reports
will be better.

See you,
