Networking / Re: openvpn configuration?
« on: December 11, 2017, 04:22:53 pm »
Hi Michael

I must admit to not knowing anything about openvpn myself so had a quick look.

Looking at the webpage http://trac.netlabs.org/ports/wiki/openvpn I think the sections Reporting Bugs and Credits are the closest answers to the "who created it, maintains it" questions - although it is more a case of who ported it rather than created it.

Looking at the zip file contents I would guess that the executable can be placed in a directory of your choice.
The supporting dll files look like they should be in the \user\lib\ directory - possibly on the boot drive if that directory does not already exist on your system and possibly added to the LibPath. You may have to experiment a little.

Due to lack of docs included I suggest you check out the links found in the Community section of the wiki https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OpenVPN - hopefully you will get some clues about configuration from those links.


Regards

Pete

Hi roberto

You could use cleanppd.cmd to prepare a ppd file for installing in psprint/pscript.drv - cleanppd is part of the psprint package and is installed in [BootDrive]:\sys\install\PRNDRV\PMDD_6 on ArcaOS systems.

You should be able to open the cups error log by selecting Administration -> View Error Log in the cups browser interface without stopping cupsd. Errors should be reported either on the eCUPS wiki http://trac.netlabs.org/ecups/report or the rpm ports wiki http://trac.netlabs.org/ports/report depending on whether you are using eCUPS or the rpm packaged cups.

Hi

Are all usb drivers that are required installed?

You can use usbcfg to view and change usb settings - usbcfg is available as zip or wpi package http://hobbes.nmsu.edu/h-search.php?key=usbcfg082&pushbutton=Search

Hi Dave

Thanks for the h264ify package - seems to have resolved most playback problems here in that all videos I have tried played. Most stop with the buffering indicator onscreen after a short period but can often be nudged on a little and then play.

Hi

@Dariusz
Thanks for confirming package is not required for Firefox; I think that also applies to Seamonkey.

@David
As I have now managed to get some videos playing I suspect you may have a valid point about "videos  with advertisements are somehow exposing a problem in SeaMonkey". How do I tell if the video should play an advert though?

Hi Dave

No starting with /safe-mode makes no difference to Seamonkeys ability to play youtube videos or even load the page fully - when selecting a vid only the playback window with the Menu button, Play button next to text YouTube and search entry field appear on the page; nothing else at all.

I have checked the RPM_REQUIREMENTS and have everything up to date with the exceptions of:-

1] bww-resources-rpm-1.1.0-3.oc00.noarch - I think this is a bitwise icons update that I may get around to installing but should not be necessary to run an app

2] libc-devel-0.6.6-35.oc00.i686 - Why is this needed? - No plans on development using these tools myself. Surely it is not needed to run apps?

Hi Dave

Forgot to add that this build of Seamonkey often hangs when starting and can take 3 or 4 attempts to actually get it running.

Maybe I do not have the latest something "lib-nixy" installed but ANPM tells me that everything is up to date...

Hi Dave

This build works about the same as the previous build: no video playback - cannot even load youtube pages completely. Less of a problem with cpus peaking when using the browser but email/newsgroups causes cpu peaking.

Something to point out from the Readme:-

"The list of RPM packages required by Firefox is
   contained in a file named RPM_REQUIREMENTS inside the ZIP archive."

So it is now necessary to download and unzip the Firefox package to read that readme file to discover what support files are required for Seamonkey!

Hi Martin

USBcfg contains a "USB Removables - Care and Feeding FAQs" IN the FAQs section of the Help. This FAQ is also available online at http://www.os2voice.org/VNL/past_issues/VNL0606H/feature_2.html if you do not have USBcfg installed.

Hi All

At least we have one "current" compiler for native OS/2: Peter's Iron Spring PL/I compiler. And how about the sleeping beauty of OpenWatcom C/C++?

</silence>
And Free Pascal (targets "OS/2 / eComStation" too), recently updated in 2017.

We should not forget Wolfgangs efforts in maintaining WDSibyl at http://www.wdsibyl.org/

Hi

Read the specs  and if they do not include the information contact the manufacturer and ask.

Hi Remy

The v2.03 driver works - but not as well as it should on some hardware which the 1.32 driver works much better with.

Reading your post made me wonder if I had missed an update but, it seems, I have not.

Hi Remy

Is there a later os2ahci.add than v2.03 and has it been released?

Hi Einar

Sounds like a familiar problem. Try adding the /R parameter to os2ahci.add in the preboot menu.

Hi All

Looking in my config.sys I see the ArcaOS installation set VIRTUALADDRESSLIMIT=1536 which seems to work fine here - however, I do not leave Seamonkey running when I am not using it and I never use the AOO QuickStart feature.

On my eCS2.1 and 2.2b2 installations on the same hardware I see that I have VIRTUALADDRESSLIMIT=3072. I think it may be something to do with the AOO Draw app - will have to test how that works in ArcaOS.


Regards

Pete
