Programming / A little help with OS/2 Warp Architecture Components
« on: March 06, 2013, 09:40:47 pm »

I'm trying to build a graphic with the OS/2 Warp and eComStation architecture component.
I want to make a graphic inspired on some I had see for Linux and MacOS X like this ones.  Something at a very high level and based on Warp 4.52 - eComStation 2.x

I have this draft version:

But I still miss:
- where does DIVE, DART or GPI goes? ohh and OpenDoc.
-  I guess DSOM should be in same block as SOM, right?
- Uhm.. no idea what goes in Ring 2.  Is there any specific component names that goes there?
- Any suggestions on how to improve the graphic?

I know we may not reach a 100% agreements since this is only a visual representation at a high level, and sometimes we really like to dig as deep as possible, but your comments are welcome.

I hope that at the end I can write something and post it on EDM/2.

General Discussion / #OS2World IRC Channel
« on: March 06, 2013, 04:07:47 pm »
Some years ago we launched an IRC channel for but it never had enough traction.

The channel is on the efnet and can be accessed if you have chatzilla installed on firefox with this link.

I connect frequently to this channel from time to time, and there is no activity, I'm the only member on it.

So my question is, would there be someone with more experience creating IRC bot, and hanging out on IRC wanting to collaborate taking over the channel ? (well, it is the efnet, so it is like the wild west there).

Also, is there any interest on group, online chat rooms on the community ?

Any comments are welcome.

Does anybody wants to share their first impressions about the "eComStation 2.2 Beta Demo CD".

I will be trying it today and post something back.

Which active mailing lists on the web, about OS/2-eCS, do you know?

BayWarp MailList Lists: eCS ThinkPad T60/61 Mailing List, OS/2 Wireless Users Mailing List, Virtualized eCS Users Mailing List

eComStation Yahoo Group

GenMac netlabs mail group seems active too.
genmac-user(at)   (

Any other active related mailinglist/group/forum on the web?
How is the USEnet going? to be honest I don't check it much.

Applications / VisPro C++
« on: January 29, 2013, 05:11:46 pm »

I'm trying to get VisPro C++ V3.01 so I can upload it to hobbes. I got Dave Hock permission last year to turn their software freeware (AS IS).

I tried to get it from Mensys. since they have it for free.
But I can not pass the payment option. It seems that you can not pay US$0 with Paypal :)

Can anybody help me to get it, and/or upload it to hobbes?


Applications / Why Firefox for eCS-OS2 didn't went up from version 10?
« on: January 19, 2013, 11:45:18 pm »

I have this question since I didn't followed the mozilla OS/2 port forum/newgroups.

What was the technical limitation because the Firefox ports didn't went from version 10 to 11 and follow on?


Programming / somFree - Portable implementation of SOM
« on: January 12, 2013, 05:26:51 pm »
"A portable clean-room implementation of IBM's SOM. Includes DSOM capabilities with CORBA IDL and IIOP."

I'm not sure for how long was this project on SourceForge. But it looks it had been some activity recently (2013-01)

I don't know much about it, but I hope it can also help us to have a open source clone of SOM on our platform. The compiled files are only available for some *nix flavours, but maybe it can help us on the future.

It is an open source project under the LGPL V3 license.

UPDATE: I noticed the project was registered 4 days ago.  And the source code it says is from "Roger Brown's Toolkit"(LGPLv3)

Comments, Suggestions & Questions / OS2World WebLinks - Submit a Link
« on: January 01, 2013, 05:48:12 pm »

I had re-populated the OS2World Links with some OS/2 site links.

I also had enabled that the registered users can submit some link on this site.

I will appreciate if you can take a look at the links and submit any missing sites. I will be moderating it, let me know if the "Submit a Web Link" is working.
