Programming / Re: DropBox problem
« on: January 05, 2017, 12:21:32 am »
Hi Neil, Thanks for the help. My root drive is H: with ndpdbox directory in H:\usr\share\doc\ndpdbox-0.4.0-b5. My Netdrive drive is Drive J:
Using H:\NDFS\ndpm.exe, I created a Mount point at J:Dropbox, then a local resource with apparently different incorrect parameters. It says to enter the full path name of a local or network  directory that will be mounted to J:Dropbox. I don't know what to enter here!??¿¿ What do you suggest?


Programming / DropBox problem
« on: January 04, 2017, 12:24:40 am »
Has anybody got DropBox working correctly on OS2-eCS? I'm partway there but can't seem to come up with the final fix. I'm using npdpbox-0.4.0-b5 with Netdrive-NDFS315. It passes the authorization and brings up my current DropBox directory list on Firefox, but I cant do anything, as there is no DropBox folder created in my root directory. In Windows7 on another machine I can add or delete files and those actions show up in my eCS dropbox in Firefox.
Anybody got any ideas as to what I've missed?  Thanks


Applications / Re: Vbox5.06 beta

Hi Doug & ivan -- fwiw, this is an early, EARLY beta. The beta is at release 150 and release 151 is the current build. This current build looks like it address's VT-x/AMD-v  O.K. USB is partially built but not functional. Win 7 works very well, and it (r-151)also works well running AMD processors and OS/4 kernel. SuSE linux 13.2 also works well.
Happy New Year to both of you.

Thank you OS4User ,  BIGTIME!  Applying the patch for 3.22.03 fixed the problem!  I'm now able to use the os4 kernel.

Well, I've run out of time to mess with this, -- gotta go! Thanks for the help, but 4747 doesn't work here either. Possibly problem with eCS's ACPI (ver 3.22.03).

Hi, Is there a way around it, looks like its necessary?  Could you suggest an earlier release that will work without it? Doing this on an AMD 4 processor box.

Hey os4 user, where can I get acpi4.bpd? Can't seem to get SVN4762 to go without it!
thanks   klipp

ivan, you are right, neither button does anything (so it seems!) but after doing that,  go up to the full screen/windowed screen icon and change the screen from what ever state you were using in and then change it back and that will clear the bar, at least it does so here.


Programming / Re: Need help with gcc copy routine

I agree, "Lousey code" I can't make it work, Have to try something else!
Thanks both of you for the help.

Hey ivan, For now only one processor is supported, as for the problem with the mouse pointer intergration notice try, click on the x to close it (which seemingly does nothing) then click on the mini icon in the upper right corner of the screen that changes screen from full screen to windowed (or vice versa) and that should get rid of it.

Programming / Need help with gcc copy routine
« on: November 12, 2016, 10:46:48 pm »
The following is a copy routine that can be used in gcc to copy a file or directory to another location while running a compile. I have this routine embedded in a .cpp file (alloc.cpp – this is just for testing to make sure the routine works) the routine will be used later in the compile that takes about 1 hour to build. I've defined “out” and now need to plug in the values for src_path =argv[1]; and dst_path = argv[2]; I've been unable to come up with the correct values for argv[1&2] and get the error indicated below. For testing purposes I'm using F:\4.0.37\testcopy for  the destination path  and F:\4.0.37\include\testfile.txt for the file to be copied.
Here is the routine in alloc.cpp:

*   Header Files                                                               *

#define exit

#include <iprt/mem.h>
#include "internal/iprt.h"

#include <iprt/assert.h>
#include <iprt/string.h>

#include <stdio.h>

int main(int argn, char * argv[]) {

    int src_fd, dst_fd, n, err;
    unsigned char buffer[4096];
    char * src_path, dst_path;

    // Assume that the program takes two arguments the source path followed
    // by the destination path.

    if (argn != 3) {
        printf("Wrong argument count.\n");

    src_path = argv[1];
    dst_path = /testcopy;

    src_fd = open(src_path, O_RDONLY);
    dst_fd = open(dst_path, O_CREAT | O_WRONLY);

    while (1) {
        err = read(src_fd, buffer, 4096);
        if (err == -1) {
            printf("Error reading file.\n");
        n = err;

        if (n == 0) break;

        err = write(dst_fd, buffer, n);
        if (err == -1) {
            printf("Error writing to file.\n");


RTDECL(void *) RTMemDupTag(const void *pvSrc, size_t cb, const char *pszTag) RT_NO_THROW

And here is  the error output:

kBuild: Compiling filesplitter - F:/4.0.37/src/bldprogs/filesplitter.cpp
kBuild: Compiling RuntimeBldProg - F:/4.0.37/src/VBox/Runtime/common/alloc/alloc.

Thanks in advance for any help

Hi Andi B. I've been using r-141 for about 2 months now and it is a definite step up from the 1.6.x series-- however it is a beta and has quite a few problems to overcome but valerius is well aware of whats needed and will resolve them in the future, I'm sure. Currently its at r-143.


Hardware / Re: H.P. 3630 - anybody got one of these working on OS2?
« on: October 23, 2016, 11:58:08 pm »
Hey Paul, Mine does too now thanks to you and everybody else's help. I've never gotten along well with CUPs but I finally gotten it straightened out and it now makes sense to me, and as you already know an RJ45 port is not necessary.

Thanks to all of you, I'm a happy CUPS'er now!

Thanks David for the help, you're solutions works! (on most machines! but not the one I need it to work on!) I use a Lenovo MT-M 6088 for compiling and it won't install on it, but does on three other boxs (non-Lenovo) using GENMAC drivers for wireless.

Hey Paul, this printer is really great, low priced, until you buy ink cartridges for it, then its not so great if you do a lot of printing. The reason it can print a "test page" in CUPS but not actually print with eCS is because it has no RJ-45 port. So David's solution seems to be the only way to make it work, but it is a very acceptable solution.
