- SMS or phone call for every calendar/email login (beside overly uncomfortable I don't even think about giving this company my phone number voluntarily)

Seems this all is a new step from Google to force the world to use their software or leave their universe. I choice second.

Actually, here it is a SMS if using a new device. I had one SMS when I first used the app password, basically asking if it was me logging in.
OAuth 2.0 also did similar with Google verifying it was me, though I made multiple attempts to set up.

Hi Digi!

Any news?

Sorry, some work related stuff took over the past couple of days of my life..grrh!

Anyways, alright. So I deployed the DLL, got the log, the WPS did NOT crash when I plugged in the phone, so I think that's good news...nor did the phone show up in the HwExplorer window though...sooo???

I will ZIP and email you the results.

Thanks again!

Hi Andi,

I only use TB so I can't comment on the Seamonkey part of it.

Having said that, my experience with TB is very different and I am using Gmail email and Google calendaring functionality.

So...Apps-specific passwords is a way I deal with the 2-step authentication, this readily handles all of my calendars, including shared calendars. In fact my TB is configured to access multiple accounts along with the underlying calendar functionality.

The "load" time (I'll just call it that here) is nowhere near to what you are seeing. TB is up and running (and usable) literally within 15 secs from me selecting the icon. That brings up the email refresh and calendar views as well.

My machine is an older Phenom II X6 based box, SSD install although I do have a giant 1G JFS cache and a 1G internet feed, so network access is not a problem. My TCPIP monitor does NOT spike as this start-up happens, so at least in my case the size of the data pull is not the problem.

The typical TB memory consumption (after its been running for a day or so) is usually between 300-400M, and that compares OK to FF's 900-1100M after the same duration (mind you, I use FF much more intensively, whereas TB is a lot mroe static).

I'm afraid this probably does not directly answer any of the questions you posed though.

As some of you may know I'm not very satisfied with startup speed of the calendar on our platform. It may depend on the number of (repeating) entries I have in my calendars, or the number of calendars (2-6), or ...

Problem is when starting the calendar it takes about a minute or more to populate. For this time part of the system hangs (seems so). If I activate Lightning in SM then SM hangs and the whole WPS including the mouse pointer. When using Thunderbird (and disable Lightning in SM) only TB hangs for that long time. WPS (and other programs) works after a few seconds.

Now I added another calendar to TB and see this message at the bottom of TB window 'Checking Calendar 3 of 4294967299'. Maybe there is some problem with signedness? If TB really wants to check 4294967299 calendars this may be another reason why it takes so long.

I've to say in this case the real problem seems to be that our TB port can't handle a new authentication for the new calendar. As this is what I would expect at that time. It's the 4. (not the 3.) calendar that I added and this one does not have authentication information yet. Calendar location is something like 'https://kalender.gmx.de/begenda/dav/emailaddress@gmx.net/calendar' if this is of interest.

One side not - gmx.de cause I discovered with TB38 on Win that TB38 is not able to handle two authentications to calendars at the same domain (gmx.net). So I choice gmx.net, gmx.at, gmx.de. A general problem of TB38 not our port. Also the time delay at startup maybe a general TB38 problem that only is not so much annoying on other platforms than on ours.

Anyway, I'll try my best to keep my email and calendars working as good as possible on OS/2. And until now, most works still astonishing well. THANKS Dave (and bww and...). Maybe there are some hints for others in this thread.

As google now disable comfortable access to there mail and calendar I'm moving completely away from this company. I've used there services only for test purposes so no big problem. Anyway I read Arca Noaes hints about new authentication. But I don't like to activate 2-factor authentication cause this would need one of the following if I understand correctly -

- Android device or other device running a Google program on it (which is not possible on OS/2 nor KaiOS and not desirable anyway)
- a FIDO security key which needs to be bought and needs to generate a key anytime I want to update my calendar (unthinkable uncomfortable)
- SMS or phone call for every calendar/email login (beside overly uncomfortable I don't even think about giving this company my phone number voluntarily)

Seems this all is a new step from Google to force the world to use their software or leave their universe. I choice second.

I think the below answers this:

[Loader's physical memory layout:
  Memory below 1MB: 630.00 KiB
  Memory between 1MB and 4GB: 3.40 GiB
  Memory below 4GB: 3.40 GiB
  Memory above 4GB: 4.49 GiB]

Full testlog attached

This arrived yesterday, and I installed ArcaOS 5.0.7 successfully on it today :) NIC and Sound were detected by the installer.

How much memory does OS/2 see?

I have the SFF version of this model with a transplanted Xeon in it, running eCS. Do not recall having any problems setting it up.
