I can find this: Amouse (2007/11/01) is a driver for mice with single wheel. This package contains the source code of the GUI elements. Source code included. Released as open source under the BSD 3 Clauses license. Requires OS/2 Warp 4 / eCS 1.0 or later. Uploaded by Martin Iturbide. From Noller & Breining Software.

As it says, only the GUI elements. It might be that the driver isn't public code. You have to ask Noller & Breining Software if they are still in business.

There is an other possibility. The battery on your motherboard is empty/down. In this case your bios is set to standard. If you have multiple USB ports on the motherboard you probably also have the feature that you can setup the number of ports you want to use. If you did choose less ports then available on the motherboard you could have a problem. With a battery down your installation is byebye and the setup goes to standard bios settings, ie all ports. I had same issue. After setting up the right number of ports all functioned again. So check your battery!

I have added a new game to my Java site, its Micropolis. For some unknown reason the jar file is not available anymore on the source, only source files, not a compiled one. As far as I can see its just free software under the GNU conditions. Because its difficult to download I made a new distribution file special for OS/2 and its successors. Its complete with icon, commandfile, the jar file and some info how you can handle the program. You can find it here or in Dutch language

I have a picture too;

have fun!

For the next five to ten years we will still have 32-bit systems (non OS/2 based), including Windows. So it is to be expected that major players will have a 32 bit application. Going to ONLY 64 bit is a big mistake from the Mozilla foundation. Not all can go to 64 bit for several reasons. If we don't have a FF 32 bit then something else will pop up, likely in some kind of public domain license.

Check out the iptrace and ipformat programs (TCPIP Command Reference) as well as Paul's port of wireshark. Biggest problem is not getting too much data, second problem is if something is encrypted, it is hard to know  what it is.
Thanks Dave, I understand that, but you can't encrypt an internet address. I just want to see if something is going to somewhere which is not my choice, in other words the program does trojan stuff.

Programming / Re: Non-yum/rpm vs. ordinary (?) eCS
« on: October 06, 2017, 05:22:44 pm »
The Arca Noae Package Manager (ANPM) makes it a LOT easier to use RPM/YUM. I strongly recommend starting to use ANPM (RPM/YUM) when you install a new system, and don't look back. It can be a bit messy trying to add ANPM (RPM/YUM) to an old install, but it can be done,
You say the right thing, when you install a new system. An old install like ECS1.2 its not to be advised to install. I didn't hear of a clean and right installation on ECS1.2Dutch. All did go with a lot of trouble. My system directory alone with dll's etc counts 14346 files. You don't set that right with those packages.
Today, I tried the new Firefox 45.9.0, which was installed using ANPM (RPM/YUM). It took about one minute, to install (with all of the required support), and it is working well, so far.
What's beyond me is that we have native archive programs to get a zip file. Why we have to use 7zip is not clear. The negative thing is that it is a ported nix program. Now I'm willing to install that, but after the download of 7zip you are confronted with the next problem. All documentation in the ported zip file are for nix systems, not a word about OS/2-eCS. The files in this distribution for OS/2-eCS are not the same as for nix systems. So the documentation fails because only nix files are mentioned. The next hurdle is that I have to translate everything into my language, most of the times that goes okay, but if things are not even mentioned in the English manual things get complicated.
I can understand that we port some programs from nix or even windows. But more and more I get the idea we just have to migrate to nix stuff. I have such a system, from Apple and that one sucks too. If you want data from program a to program b you have with Apple a real problem if they didn't thought about that possibility. Everything is only possible with wireless or something like that. Doing it by cable is just not possible. Just a few examples I experience.

Some posts are missing, with next update I want to correct that.

I have a question. I do have Java programs which works in OS/2-eCS (don't have ArcaOS because its still not available in Dutch), but do something on the net. I want to have a log with what those programs do and vent on the net. But haven't an idea how to setup such log. Some help is appreciated. So having a ftp programs is nice, but you to have tell your logon name and your password. What I want to test is if it doesn't copy that to some other unwanted site. Kind of nice program good to be true with a trojan inside for catching your name and password. 


Web applications / Directory safebrowsing in 38.8
« on: October 04, 2017, 02:19:11 am »
There is a directory in the profile of FF38.8 with the name safebrowsing. Is there a way that you can monitor its contents. The problem is that I have a forum which won't start in ff38.8 but do start in ff24. I can't figure out why and I suspect this directory which might contain information which is not right.

Storage / Re: JFS on FreeBSD
« on: June 18, 2017, 04:31:24 pm »
Given that there is an OPENJFS, is there any reason why this couldn't be built on FreeBSD?
Sorry, but this forum handles OS/2 and its successors, FreeBSD isn't one of them. So I think you don't get an in depth answer on your question.

SYS1311: The system files are missing

Anyone know which 'system files' are being referred to?
What you want to do doesn't work that way. One of the system files you need is "HPFS.IFS". That "IFS" stands for Installable File System. As the name says, you need to install it or install the system from disk where these files reside for first run. I'm not sure if this is the only file you need in this process.
