Hi christech.

What is your question? There is a lot of OS/2 software that had been discontinued by their authors. Or was not a question, just a statement? Or you want to know how legally obtain a discontinued software?

If they reply was that is not able for sale, maybe you can ask Hilgraeve. "Hey, can I use it for free then?"

Very nice collection. Clint says on the video he is called Joshua. I'm not sure if I had interacted with him.

I also have a different question but related. Will it work to declare "XDG_CONFIG_HOME" to change the location (obviously for application that respect that) like:

%HOME%/.config is a Qt thing. The built-in Qt routines for reading/writing settings automatically use that location.

That's something I didn't expect  :o But for example Tea is a Qt app and it does not use the /.config.

I share the idea that the typical developer that had spend a long time coding his software on an specific language will not change it. But if we just ignore "the shift / the wave" a different thing may happen,  new developers with new ideas came and annihilates the old software. Suddenly the software we use became "legacy" and we just blind fold ourselves saying that all the new stuff is crap and all this young people are just hipsters that nobody understand.

I insist on keeping out eyes open to whatever comes that may help us and notice that things may change in the future.

Hi Paul

I tested it (Release version) with OS/2 Warp 4.52 (14.106) guest on VBox 6.1.38 (Windows 10 21H2 host).
- VM ICH AC97: Works, Audio control working, no traps.
- VM Intel HD Audio: Works, Audio control working, no traps.


General Discussion / Re: eCoSoft software availability

Eugene, can you please rephase your post?
I also don't understand what "(Purchase a computer device online, forward it to Russia)" means. It sound like eCoSoft is accepting payment in hardware. Maybe each indiviual payment need to be negotiated with Eugene from now on.

I guess that the issue is how can non-Russians pay for eCoSoft products because of the sanctions applied to Russia.

Just like Ian says, let's keep the politics away, I also don't have any issue with Russian or Ukranian citizen.

Thanks for the feedback.

I was wondering if the ".config" was standarized, because if it was, maybe that can be requested to the original develper (or project owner) of the open source project, so in the next port update it will reflected.  But since it is not standarized, I guess it can be more difficult for the original developer to agree on that.

I noticed that some Linux ported apps create their configuration files inside /.config inside the /home directory (example featherpad), but some other applications just go directly to the /home. (example Doodle, Tea).

Do you know if this is something hardcoded on the application, or if it something that can be adjust on compile time (when it is compiled on the OS/2 platform)?

I would prefer everything to try to get standarized and use /.config but I'm not sure if that should be a standard thing on the Linux apps. Is there any recommendation to use .config for Linux developers? Or was something interpreted for the OS/2 platform ports? I was not able to find about it on the internet.

Dooble 2022.04.04.x downloaded "" without any issues here. I opened the file and worked here.

I checked Dave's file. (I needed a yum install SDL2_image)

Works nice, I need to read more the manual.

It is the first time I hear about "BrogueCE". Allow me to add more context:

Brogue is a single-player strategy game set in the halls of a mysterious and randomly-generated dungeon. The objective is simple enough -- retrieve the fabled Amulet of Yendor from the 26th level -- but the dungeon is riddled with danger. Horrifying creatures and devious, trap-ridden terrain await. Yet it is also riddled with weapons, potions, and artifacts of forgotten power. Survival demands strength and cunning in equal measure as you descend, making the most of what the dungeon gives you. You will make sacrifices, narrow escapes, and maybe even some friends along the way -- but will you be one of the lucky few to return alive?

I will try it out hopefully tonight.


Comments, Suggestions & Questions / Re: Hobbes (Files) Reoganization
« on: September 27, 2022, 07:30:33 pm »

Just in case, I would like someone with more experience on BBS that can help thinking the best way to organize the BBS related files.  I know what a BBS is, but I had never connected or set up one.

Currently Hobbes has:
- "/pub/os2/apps/comm/bbs" which I need to reorganize, since I think many of those are utils and not apps.
- "/pub/os2/server/bbs" The reorganized BBS server applications.
- "/pub/os2/util/BBS" the reorganized BBS utilities.

I'm not happy yet on how to reorganize this, because of my lack of knowledge of what is Door and what is Maximus. Should there have their own directory? or should be all in "/pub/os2/util/BBS".


Multimedia / [SOLVED] Re: OS/2 Warp 4.52 VM, changing audio to Uniaud
« on: September 26, 2022, 06:47:24 pm »
SUCCESS !!! Thanks to all.

I think now I got the full procedure:

1) Uninstall the Sound Blaster driver with MINSTALL from the eCS or ArcaOS CDROM image.

2) Install the Uniaud Drivers using the WarpIn procedure

3) Install the Uniaud Drivers with MINSTAL from C:\MMOS2\INSTALL\UNIAUD

It think this is the procedure. I will keep testing the audio on the machine.

Thanks to all again.
