Web applications / Re: Lightning (SM/TB)
« on: November 16, 2017, 10:42:53 pm »
In the German forum I only posted the download links which will you direct back to OS/2 World's forum. Here it was message #13196 of  the thread (http://www.os2world.com/forum/index.php/topic,1374#msg13196) started by Dave.
Ah, your are right, that's probably the thread. But from far behind in my head I remember that you also posted a newer version (4.7.9 ??).

Edit: I found a Google snapshot of the thread: https://www.google.de/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=we...
But because you wrote "notdürftig zusammengeschustert" I don't know if it has any advantages about 4.7.8.

You are getting sloppy with your silence tag :P
I think it was my thread where I searched for translators for language packages for SM 2.42. It got a victim of the server crash in September :(
Andreas has published a german version of Lightning 4.7.8 in the german OS/2 forum, but I haven't tested it: http://www.os2.org/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=1200

Applications / Re: Mount ISO as drive letter
« on: November 05, 2017, 11:04:25 pm »
ISOFS: http://home.clara.net/orac/os2.htm#isofs

But mounted ISOs do not appear as a CD-ROM drive but as a network drive.

:(
Maybe it vanishes by itself just as it came.

Anyway, thanks for your help!

From a regular browser on a PC I can access the wap address and see the forum contents. But if I'm not previous logged on the forum I see the message that says "Your session timed out while posting. Please go back and try again." no matter what password I put there.
That's exactly what is happening to me.
Thanks for investigating this, I will wait patiently for your results.

Thanks for confirming this. But with my mobile I can't log in with the full version because the full version is to big for it's memory  :o  (a Siemens S55 made in 2003, so I am not surprised about this).
I think the login status is preserved based on cookies because on my laptop I am logged in at home and when using my universities internet access.
I understand that this problem does not apply to many users but as this mobile login page is there I think it should work.

Whenever I browse the OS2World forum with my mobile phone I use the mobile version (http://www.os2world.com/forum/index.php?wap2) but since the forum outage in September I am no longer able to log in using it. I go to the login page http://www.os2world.com/forum/index.php?action=login;wap2 enter username and password but when I select 'Login' it says

An Error Has Occurred!
Your session timed out while posting. Please go back and try again.
At first I thought it is a problem with my mobile, but now I tested it with different browsers on different computers (Firefox on OS/2, Windows and Linux; Vivaldi on Windows and Linux; Opera and Chrome on Windows) and it didn't work so it is obviously not the fault of the ancient browser I use on my mobile. I tried deleting cookies and cache but this didn't help.
Can anyone confirm that logging in with the mobile version does not work or am I the only one who is experiencing this? Any thoughts how to fix this?

Thanks in advance, Laurenz

Programming / Re: How to build Seamonkey?
« on: June 19, 2017, 02:00:18 pm »
What was the problem with 4os2 again? I saw some hints in this thread, but no explanations why one should only use CMD for dev.
With SET COMSPEC=C:\OS2\4OS2.EXE only one processor core was utilised while building. Another problem with 4os2 in COMSPEC not related to development of Firefox/SeaMonkey: When you start an exe from a REXX program compiled with rexx2exe, 4os2 tries to execute the exe as an REXX script, not as a binary executable and fails of course.
When executing 'make package' in 4os2 it hung after compressing xul.dll with lxlite.

Oh, yes I forgot about autoreconf.
The problem with param.h is fixed, with the up to date libc-devel from netlabs-exp no editing was needed when I built SeaMonkey yesterday.
I'll edit my post obove when I'm home, right now I'm traveling by train and post with my mobile phone made in 2003 :D

Setup & Installation / Re: format /fs:hpfs does not work
« on: June 18, 2017, 05:52:08 pm »
You have to change to e:\os2image\disk_3 before you run format, typing the full path to format.com like you did is not enough.

I have verified my setup on another laptop; in the hope it might be helpful to someone:
The following packages need to be installed either via 'yum install' or ANPM's Quick install:
Code: [Select]
netlabs-exp
nasm gcc gcc-wlink gcc-wrc kbuild-make m4 grep gawk perl python findutils tar pkgconfig perl-PathTools pthread-devel
exceptq exceptq-devel autoconf213 autoconf nspr-devel nss-devel libicu-devel pixman-devel cairo-devel pango-devel
fontconfig-devel freetype-devel libkai-devel libvpx-devel libjpeg-turbo-devel libpng-devel zlib-devel bzip2-devel
hunspell-devel libcx-devel expat-devel python-test ffmpeg-devel libtool libtool-ltdl-devel gettext-devel
git
mercurial
Install the OS/2 Developer's Toolkit, this may be done with yum, too.
In the config.sys set VIRTUALADDRESSLIMIT=3072.
Reboot, so changes applied to your config.sys become active.
Install lxlite from http://home.earthlink.net/%7Esteve53/betas/lxlt135-shl-20121201.zip into your PATH.
Follow Dave's instructions to download the sources: https://bitbucket.org/dryeo/dry-comm-esr31/src/ad7137973e042eb45ca5fb35764ebafb2db40f4c/BUILD.OS2?at=default&fileviewer=file-view-default. If you get an 'File or directory not found' error it might be possible that you have to set HOSTNAME in your environment settings.
Download all attached files, edit them  so the paths match your environment. Move config.site to \usr\local\share.
Open a command shell in \cc-31\mozilla, execute sh.exe in this command shell. In sh execute the following:
Code: [Select]
autoconf213
(cd js/src && autoconf213)
(cd js/src/ctypes/libffi && autoreconf -fi)
(cd nsprpub && autoconf)
In /cc-31 open a command shell (use cmd.exe, not 4os2, and pay attention that the environment setting COMSPEC is set to C:\os2\ cmd.exe). Run mozenv.cmd and build_suite.cmd. After the build process completes run smxqs.cmd, cd into obj-sm and execute 'make package'.
The zip package is in \cc-31\obj-sm\dist.
The build process took about 5 and a half hour on a laptop with an Intel CoreDuo 1,83 GHz and 2 GiB RAM; 8 and a half hour with a Pentium M 2,13 GHz and 1280 MiB RAM.

This instruction might be wrong, incomplete or completely useless. Especially it is likely that some of the RPM packages are not necessary.
Thanks to everyone, who helped me finding out the steps.

OK, so I have already added the patch to my repository with git add and git commit?
I see, powerful means confusing me with power :-[ ;D
I will dig through some tutorials and in conjunction with your crash course it hopefully will be enough for me.

Thanks for being patient with me :) I followed your instructions and successfully (at least I got no error) applied the patch you mentioned above. The only thing that puzzles me, is it said something like 'patches is up to date' (patches is my working branch; I don't recall the exact term and it was in german) after I executed git rebase master (with the branch patches enabled).
Anyway, I'll open a topic in the Mozilla newsgroup for the further process.
I need to verify which packages are really needed, because I think I installed a few unnecessary ones while searching for the error, but then I will post a short instruction.

Best to create a git branch to apply the patch to. If you need help doing it, reply here.
Are you talking about creating a repository at e. g. github or is there a way to create a local repository? My knowledge about git is very limited and I have actually no clue how to do either of this :-\.
At the moment I am reading through mozilla.dev.ports.os2, later I will post there.

It's working! Right now I'm posting with my own build of SeaMonkey. Thanks to all of you who participated into this thread!
Dave, I built libcx as suggested by you, and replaced the files, but it didn't help. make package hung after compressing plugin-container.exe. I thought it might be possible to finish the packing by restarting again and again until all executables got processed by lxlite, so I opened 4os2, set up the environment, and executed
Code: [Select]
start cmdto get a new command prompt. This was necessary because python didn't terminate properly after pressing CTRL-C and I didn't want to set up the environment for each command prompt. But in that cmd.exe window the remaining executables were compressed without error. To sum it up: Maybe make package failed because I ran it in 4os2 (but I had SET COMSPEC=C:\OS2\CMD.EXE in my environment).

One last question: I compared the build configuration at about:buildconfig of my version with Dave's, and under configure arguments --enable-os2-high-mem was missing. How do I set this option in my own Build environment? Do I have to add the line
Code: [Select]
ac_add_options --enable-os2-high-mem to my mozconfig?

@Dave Shall I send you an email regarding the german locale patch you mentioned before?
