Applications / Re: FeatherNotes for OS/2
« on: March 22, 2022, 07:30:01 pm »
Hi Jochen

I have a problem with FeatherNotes and I'm not sure if it something on my system or in the application. The window of the application shows on the top and I can not move it on the desktop. I also do not have the windows bar showing on the top.

Ah, yes. I had that, too. Try to press ALT+Space and then select  "Move" in the window menu.

thank you, this also helped me going to ask same question  ;)

FYI Mauro:
- Yes, I have netlabs-exp enabled in my rpm.
- I have "hunspell 1.7.0-2", "pentium4".


Thank you Martin and Jochen, found it in netlabs-rel,  FeatherNotes works now  :)

hi, this is the image error message coming after running FeatherNotes  (rpm installed by yum install command line)

Internet / Re: RPM: Switching from i686 to Pentium4
« on: March 02, 2022, 03:07:43 pm »

For the moment I think I completed the process to changing my ArcaOS 5.0.7 VM from i686 to Pentium4 by using ANPM. I think I will write the sequence on the OS2World wiki, just in case I forget about it on the future.

I will also see if I can update the link on the netlabs RPM project too.


Hi Martin, please post the link when done, I'm interested as well.
Thank you

You need, SET KAI_AUTOMODE=DART in your config.sys, the SET command puts it in your environment. It is actually for libkai, to quote, "K Audio Interface v2.1.0. DART/UNIAUD implementation library." it can use DART or Uniaud but the Uniaud support is broken.

yes, my mistake, I missed to type SET in the command line. Now system boots with no error messages, but still no audio when playing video in Firefox (or simplebrowser now)

The browser itself seems to be awfully memory hungry. Might help to SET QTWEBENGINE_CHROMIUM_FLAGS=--single-process.

this makes simplebrowser behaving as described by Tom before: the browser window quit itself just two seconds away from opening.  Better without this line, in my system.

As for needing to use incognito mode, sounds like your profile is damaged.
 Delete the files in home,
".local/share/QtExamples/simplebrowser/QtWebEngine" and ".cache/QtExamples/simplebrowser/QtWebEngine". Without the quotes, home is usually in your boot disk under x:\home.

found C:/.local/share/QtExamples/simplebrowser/QtWebEngine and removed all contents inside QtWebEngine directory (subfolders and files inside, then rebooted, now all same as before)  but no path exists in my system as C:/.cache/QtExamples/simplebrowser/QtWebEngine.

Yes, sound works here in the Simplebrowser. You might need "KAI_AUTOMODE=DART" set in your environment. Might already be set for Firefox.

"SYS1195 The statement KAI_AUTOMODE on line 188 of the config.sys is not recognized. Line 188 is ignored.  Press Enter to continue"
Have to say that I tried to work with this some time ago for fixing the multimedia play without audio in Firefox -while no problem with a media player-.  It has something to do with the audio drivers compatibility in Virtualbox, it is setted on Suondblaster 16 which I believe are the standard audio drivers given with OS2, I did not succeed to obtain any result with the Uniaud drivers installation (KAI_AUTOMODE goes with Uniaud right?) even changing the virtualbox audio filter possibilities

thanks for the hint, the reason was an older NSS.

I just updated NSS from 3.23.0 to 3.47.0. That did fix the startup crash here.

very well; this now makes my simplebrowser opening most of url pages (only in Incognito Window mode). *Sometime during browsing the system traps but is an effective improvement from the previous situation

*Edit: traps all the times after some minutes of browsing

could you please explain the details? I would try to resurvive the simplebrowser installation which actually opens the GUI but then remains mostly inoperable

Now Firefox doesnt work anymore but simplebrowser works.
Once it chrashed in pmmerge.dll and a reboot was required.

after all pakages + dll necessary installation for simplebrowser, my Firefox did not start anymore, also posted in this thread, It returned working again after having installed libvpx-legacy-4 by ANPM

so strange: just worked once among +/-  25 attempts, only with and only with http (no https) prefix, in Incongnito Window.
Then, starting a research from there, no listed url is selectable since the arrow pointer does not become a hand

Yes, seems to be down quite a bit, it is currently not loading for me.
Try doing CTRL-T to open a new tab and enter If you get the rendering error, just click the try again.
This is a really basic browser so you have to enter the whole address, not just, but, and if a site needs www, you have to enter it to.
Glad it came up for you.

it remains blank as well with the "no entrance" symbol, both normal and Incongnito window.

Also have to say that system traps every time I close the simplebrowser window

in the attached image you can see the error message that appears when the reinstallation begins. Same now is appearing as I try to run simplebrowser.exe

You are missing icuuc.dll version 68.1-1 - to be found in package libicu (which must match with package icu).
ok, I've found had libicu 56.1-2  i686 installed, and upgraded to 68.1-1 Pentium 4, went ok.
Then rebooted, reinstalled qt5-qtwebengine and went ok, rebooted, run simplebrowser.exe and finally the browser window appeared!!
 :) :)
now, it would be great if it opened webpages as well, it seems not connecting (see first image) for any given url, no matter if I choose YES or NO, it remains blank (second image) .  I also applied Dave's suggestions for highmem loading module in \usr\lib : highmem -c qt5*dll  and   highmem -c av*dll .
But something happens again if I open a New Incognito Window and enter an URL there , here's the next error message (third image)

I guess you could reinstall all failing packages, right click in ANPM and choose reinstall. Make sure you reboot after doing libc and libcx which should be done first.

done this as well.  First of all have to say that libcx (not considered till now) showed to be as previuously existing for i686 arc , then making reinstall for Pentium 4, went ok. Have reinstalled also libc and libstdc++ rebooting each time, went ok.
Then reinstalled every single qt5 package which was taken together with qt5-qtwebengine-example ; all went well except for qt5-qtwebengine, in the attached image you can see the error message that appears when the reinstallation begins. Same now is appearing as I try to run simplebrowser.exe

Weird if it is a clone of a working system. Does ANPM show libvpx-legacy-4 as installed?

no, it wasn't, found it among the available packages. Once installed, then Firefox runs well.

Still untested your latest suggestions.

Thank you

Here's a which2.exe which can list DLL's in the libpath, eg
Code: [Select]
which2 -la libvpx4.dll
Do similar for other DLL's that give you a sys2070

@Pete, I've restored the line LIBPATH=.; ......      as it was before, keeping C:\USR\LIB as first call

@Dave , in the actual system (after the qt5-qtwebengine-examples installation) :

[C:\OS2\WHICH2]which2 -la libvpx4.dll
libvpx4.dll is NOT FOUND in:
 ., c:/usr/lib, c:/usr/local/lib, c:/ibmlan/netlib, c:/muglib/d
 c:/ibmgsk50/lib, c:/ibmgsk40/lib, c:/ibmgsk/lib, c:/mptn/dll,
 c:/ibmcom/dll, c:/os2/mdos, c:/, c:/os2/apps/dll, c:/mmos2/dll
 c:/vlc2/usr/local/lib, c:/ndfs, c:/odin/system32, c:/office51

in the previous state system, the one I've cloned for working with this task:

[C:\OS2\WHICH2]which2 -la libvpx4.dll

and of course Firefox runs.

While for libcx0.dll , mentioned in the latest error message when trying to start simplebrowser.exe
[C:\OS2\WHICH2]which2 -la libcx0.dll

appears to be in the right place

I see qt5webengine and qt5webengine-examples installed, it should be good enough as long as your LIBPATH is correct.

I discovered LIBPATH line in config.sys a bit messed (yes: there was a dot just after the = ) and I corrected it as you wrote, with C:\USR\LIB as first call.
But no improve.
In addition, if it means something, Firefox does not run anymore, see error message image.  It can't load anymore its xul.dll , faulty module LIBVPX4
