Applications / Re: Samba and ArcaOS?
« on: January 19, 2018, 09:37:54 am »
Hi Klipp,

Samba has worked great here ever since the later ArcaOS betas. Now I can't get it to work on ArcaOS any more. I've tried this on both AMD & Intel based machines and get the same problems. The machines are listed in "Network Neighborhood" but shared subdirectories are not listed so sharing can't take place. Samba still works fine on eCS box in the LAN. This seems to have started possibly after one of the many YUM updates.
I keep thinking I've screwed up inadverantly, but making the same mistake on two different machines that used to work fine is a stretch.
Thanks in advance for any comments (good or bad!)

I believe network neighbourhood is populated by Arcamapper spawning smbclient.exe - it doesn't use the Samba 4.x plugin.

I would try a couple of things.
1) use pmdll to check ndpsmb.dll & smbcln44.dll for any DLL loading issues
2) Try enabling logging for the Samba plugin, by creating a file ndpsmb.dbg in the root directory of your ArcaOS install, then restarting the control daemon from Arcamapper; then trying to map a drive. If the plugin is loading (if it's a DLL issue from 1) it may not be); then you should get some output in x:\var\log\ndpsmb.log

Cheers,

Paul

initdb in the 9.4 and 9.6 build doesn't behave like they do in 9.3:

performing post-bootstrap initialization ... postgres: could not look up effective user ID 0: No such file or directory
child process exited with exit code 1
initdb: removing data directory "D:/NLSTeam"

Needless to say, I don't see that here, but I'll try investigate soon!

Hopefully https://www.dropbox.com/s/8hkit4gq4b8kedt/postgresql-9.6.6-os2-20180103.zip?dl=0 should help

Cheers,

Paul

VIRTUALADDRESSLIMIT=2048 seems to be the best setting here to not get the above error during initdb.

Too small (1536) and it randomly fails, too big (2560) and it fails 100% with a semget() error.

While I was at it, I built 9.6.6:
http://smedley.id.au/tmp/postgresql-9.6.6-os2-20180101.zip

Note that sometimes when running the database initialisation, I got an error like:
running bootstrap script ... FATAL:  could not get shared memory segment: Invalid argument

running initdb a 2nd time seemed to address this.

Paul

Hi All,

Inspired by Greg Pringle and Jan-Erik Larka, I updated Postgresql to 9.3.x:
http://smedley.id.au/tmp/postgresql-9.3.17-os2-20171231.zip

I also just built 9.4.x:
http://smedley.id.au/tmp/postgresql-9.4.15-os2-20180101.zip

Feedback appreciated!

Cheers,

Paul

FWIW - a build of GCC 7.2.0 is available - http://smedley.id.au/tmp/gcc-7.2.0-os2-20171216.zip

Hi Guys,

I do not know what you talking about but Paul Smedley provides current builds of GCC 6 and 7 on his website for OS/2.
Only three errors in one sentence.
1. The current "supported" versions of the GNU Compiler Collection (GCC) are Version 6.4 and 7.2. Neither full builds nor builds of a subset are currently available.
2. The mentioned download package comes not from his website but from dropbox - I didn't know that Paul is the owner of dropbox?
3. The mentioned download package is not a full package but a subset of GCC features (C and C++ frontend, gfortran frontend) - some tools but no standard C library or standard C++ library support included

1) I haven't built 6.4, but 6.3 is available on my site. Likewise with 7.2. Note these are minor bug fixes, I just haven't had time to build them.

2) Does it really matter that my downloads come from Dropbox? I hsot files on Dropbox to try and provide the best possible download speeds for users.

3) Why should I include a C library with a compiler? It's clearly stated the compiler builds on top of the environment that klibc provides..

Cheers,

Paul

Hi Devon,

Hey Paul,

I sent you an email--if it didn't go through and if there are any problems let me know.
Cheers,

Got it, I've just been a little tied up this week, I'll get to it ASAP.

Cheers,

Paul

Hi Devon,

I've been looking for some of those OS/2 games for awhile as I had some plans for reviews and other things (a lot of early Windows and OS/2 games are falling off the face of planet earth and nothing has been archived anywhere as it's proprietary software). Heck, I own some games which probably the only copies in existence reside on my HDD and the physical copy I own!

Would $60 AUS and whatever shipping to Canada work?

Send me an email :) paul at smedley dot id au

Cheers,

Paul

Hi All,

I'm having a clear out, as we're moving house in the next few months. Note that all items are in Australia, and postage costs may be prohibitive for some items to be mailed overseas. Use https://auspost.com.au/parcels-mail/calculate-postage-delivery-times/#/option/international/AU/US?fromPostcode=5125 as a guide to postage costs (Link provided is postage to the US).

Make me an offer on the below :)
  • Avarice the Final Saga - with original box
  • Galactic Civilizations 2 - includes GalCiv Gold CD - with original box
  • Links OS/2 - with original box
  • Entrepreneur - with original box
  • Faxworks Pro for OS/2 v3.0- with original box
  • Unimaint v5.0 - 2x floppies only - no box
  • Master of the Empire - CD only - no box
  • Stellar Frontier 1.01 - OS/2 and Windows - CD only - no box
  • IBM Family FunPak for OS/2 Warp - CD digipack - no box
  • Vigilance on Talos V - CD only - no box

Note this doesn't mean I'm stopping porting stuff for OS/2 - just doing some house keeping on stuff I haven't touched for years.

Cheers,

Paul

Related to this, currently the SSH clients rpm is broken and there seems to be a problem fixing it. Paul, if you read this, perhaps you have a few pointers? Ticket http://trac.netlabs.org/rpm/ticket/251

I don't offhand - but will try see if I can find that source, from memory, I used the openssh source from netlabs as a base....

Looks like my changes I made are these:  http://smedley.id.au/tmp/openssh.diff

I don't recall the logic in some parts, looks like in at least one case we're ignoring errors from select() :) <hack alert>

Programming / Re: poll() and select()
« on: June 25, 2017, 12:14:28 am »
Hey Jochen,


I'm trying to port multitail, but it seems that select() as well as poll() doesn't seem to work.
I have attached my test programs, which both should work. Both  return with EINVAL.
So, am I missing something or is the OS/2 implementation buggy?
Can somebody point me to some already ported code, which uses poll or select?

Check for pipe() usage - klibc select() won't work on a pipe()'d socket - replace pipe with socketpair....

Cheers,

Paul

Hey Dariusz,

It works awesome!!!

Wow, this is really great...I mean all the stuff I have ever wanted to know (or was curious) about in the normal TCP/IP traffic exposed and available for review.

Here are a couple of icons I quickly grabbed on-line...in case anyone else is looking for something prettier than the OS/2 CLI session icon.

Thanks again Paul!

Thanks for the feedback - I'll add one of those icons into the distribution - I hadn't even thought about icons, I'll check the source code distro for an icon as well.

Cheers,

Paul
