RPM Repository: IBM OS/2 Toolkit.
« on: April 17, 2024, 12:16:01 am »
Hello

I know that some components of the IBM OS/2 Toolkit are already on the Netlabs RPM.
But I was wondering if the sc.exe compiler and nmake.exe can be included as "os2tk45" packages.

Or if David's repackage of the "IBM OS/2 Toolkit" has something updated/improved that can be of interest to be includes on the "os2tk45" packages. (https://88watts.net/dlfile.php?F=Os2Tk45-)

The dream is just to have run some "yum install" command have a complete IBM OS/2 Toolkit on your dev system.

Hello

Just drifting away from this topic, I noticed that some SOM Dlls are different size and date from the OS/2 TK 4.5 and the ones installed in ArcaOS 5.1.
(Picture Attached).

Lxlite?
With the toolkit som.dll.
Code: [Select]
6-30-99  7:17p       133,593    124 a---  som.dll

[H:\tmp]lxlite som.dll

Time stamp might be off due to zip or such screwing up the timezone
Edit: ignore what I said about the timestamp, possible it was rebuilt for the release with /exepack:2 which does similar to lxlite

Hi Dave

Maybe is something like that.  With lxlite SOM.DLL and SOMD.DLL get compressed, but not exactly the same size.
Should we assume that are the same files and do not worry about it?

I'd assume the same code. Wonder if one has debug data?

I would not assume exactly the same code. However, I would always prefer the files in \OS2\DLL over those in \OS2TK45\SOM\COMMON\DLL.

People not installing the toolkit (which should be assumed to be the majority) need a working system.
