Hi

"/pub/os2/dev" is taking shape.

I'm going forward with the idea of this structure:
Code: [Select]
Dev
--Info
--Libraries
--ProgLang
--Runtimes
--Samples
--Tools

Inside "ProgLang" I'm including the specific compilers for each language.

There are the /misc folders inside some of those. If someone sees that a new category(directory) can be created, since there are like 5 items that can create a new category, let me know.

Regards

Hi

Just to keep posting some updates, I had been doing some progress with "/pub/os2/dev"
I think it looks better, but I still need to keep working with the C, Cplusplus, REXX, EMX and Pascal to put it under /proglang.

To don't get bored, I jump from time to time to reorganise other directories and I found I have some complications on how to organise this two directories:
- "/pub/os2/apps/comm"
- "/pub/os2/util/network"

On COMM, I don't have any experience with BBS and modem communication software. Does Fossil falls under the BBS category?

I'm trying to organise things (if possible), not of what technology they are, but what they do. On "/pub/os2/util/network/" I still need to think about the "lansrv, "tcpip" and "ndis".
I'm confused about "ndis" because are protocol drivers that I had never used. Are those fine there? Any suggestions? or should be moved to something like "/pub/os2/system/drivers/ndis" ?

Comments and help is always welcome.

Regards

Fossil would fall under the BBS category.
 Network Driver Interface Specification (NDIS) is just another name for our (and DOS and Windows) network drivers, or more exact part of them IIRC. OK, Wiki has an overview, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Network_Driver_Interface_Specification

It's time to rename
/pub/os2/util/network/analizer
to
/pub/os2/util/network/analyzer

:-)

 :o :o :o

You mean the files in the incomming directory, yes, that is my mistake.

But the hobbes archiver already fixed all my past mistakes putting them on "Analyzer" with "y".

I will fix the .txt files that I use for template to reflect the correct word.

Thanks for the feedback.

Hi

I'm still processing in my mind where is the right place for "/pub/os2/util/network/ndis"
-  Is it fine there?
- Should it go somewhere representing that is for the VDM, like "/pub/os2/system/VDM/ndis" ?
- Should it go somewhere else?

Seems to me that  "/pub/os2/util/network/ndis" is fine. IIRC they can work under OS/2, DOS and older Windows depending on installer and perhaps other support files.

Hi

I had lost some intensity on the hobbes reorganization, and I think I'm happy with the directory structure now.

I don't know if there are some comments, I still need to continue with:
- /pub/os2/apps/comm/bbs
- /pub/os2/util/network/tcpip
- /pub/os2/dev/pascal
- /pub/os2/dev/rexx (This will take longer)

I'm also starting slowly with: /pub/os2/system/patches

Regards

Hi

I was thinking if it will make sense to divide the "/pub/windows" in two:
- /pub/win16  - For Windows 16 bits apps that runs on Win-OS2
- /pub/win32 - For Windows 32 Bits apps that runs on OS/2 with Odin.

But this is just an early idea, I don't know if there is enough Win32 Freeware/Shareware/OpenSource that runs with Odin to populate in a decent way the /win32 directory.  And it makes sense to first finish with the native apps reorganisation before starting this.

Hi

Just a good day to create a self reminder of the directories on APPS that I'm missing to organize.
- /pub/os2/apps/comm/bbs
- /pub/os2/apps/editors
- /pub/os2/apps/religion
- /pub/os2/apps/science/chem
- /pub/os2/apps/science/ee
- /pub/os2/apps/wp

Hi

I found this two files that I can not unzip, both looks like corrupt here.
- https://hobbes.nmsu.edu/download/pub/os2/system/x11/XFree86/v3.1/312fslib.zip
- https://hobbes.nmsu.edu/download/pub/os2/system/x11/XFree86/v3.1/312fvfb.zip

If someone can confirm, I will apreciate it.

Is it worth even keeping v3.1 (and 3.2) around? The latest 3.x was 3.3.6, which perhaps should be uploaded to Hobbes, same with 4.x where the latest seems to have been 4.5.0.
BTW, the last release of XFree86 seems to have been 4.8, which I could probably build, it's EMX, need gcc-elf and an EMX unixroot. Probably some of the xorgs from before they ripped out the imake stuff and/or OS/2 code could also probably be built. I don't see the point unless very bored though.

ftp://ftp.xfree86.org/pub/XFree86/3.3.6/binaries/OS2/
ftp://ftp.netlabs.org/../pub/xfree86/4.5.0/

I agreed with that. I will only keep the latest 3.x and latest 4.x on hobbes. I will keep the older versions locally in one file for the "other legacy repo" we may have someday. For the moment I need to keep trying how should I remove/replace that large list of files on each "/pub/os2/system/x11/XFree86" directory. It seems that the New Mexico University is on vacations these days.

It would be awesome if you can do some testing of building 4.8 version and see if it works. And it will be great if the X11 aficionados can help to test it out a little bit with the X11 ported software.
