For non-experienced users it's near to impossible to get OS/2 Warp 4 (even 4.52) to work. Most of them try that because others are not available for nothing. Even the early ArcaOS versions can't be used (without fixes) on more modern hardware. That applies especially for SaMBa.

So, to non-experienced users: Always use the latest version. It's currently ArcaOS 5.0.7. Note that the systems actually lacks a recent and stable browser, even when Dooble is a great step forward. That may be changed in the near future.

Might be worth checking the following are installed, replace any i686 versions with P4 versions
Silvan told us that it would be useless to change all package to pentium4. That won't be an update. I don't know if that affects the packages you've listed.

I have just checked my old renamed zip version 2.30, probably got from Hobbes long time ago:

DLL tree - F:\BIN\ZIP2.30.EXE                                            Page 1

           │            └SESMGR.DLL──┐
           │                         └DOSCALL1.DLL

Hi Lutz,

as already written on, I've replaced the QNet4.dll with that from, as Silvan wrote. But my issue (similar to yours) that SSL is not supported still applies. Strange.

Will try that on another installation, but not today.

Download from the cc-os2 page works. Thanks to both of you Dave and Andi.

Dave, your link to that contains a trailing doublequote char. Otherwise it's the same.

I like "proglang" too.
Ok, that makes it a bit easier. But moving all proglang files of /pub/os2/dev/ to that new subdir is much work. (IIRC, dirs are created automatically per placing archive files. Otherwise it would be easy by moving these trees with access to the file system. Maybe Curtis, the maintainer, has a better idea. I would address him first.)

Should "dos2unix" and "unix2dos" be on the /dev directory?
No, it's not (only) a tool for developing, more a general tool.

I read that is a more like a "text processing utility" or "text convert tool". Will it be fine to go on "/pub/os2/util/convert"?
That seems to be the best destination IMO.

thinking it better maybe "/pub/os2/dev/tools/parsers".

In my file from 23-02-2002, I have: /pub/os2/dev/proglang

Either one would be OK for me (proglang, compilers or lang). "lang" has already another meaning, see the env var "LANG". BTW, there exist compilers and interpreters, so compilers might not be a suited place for e.g. REXX tools.

Martin, I have started to write something together on 2022-02-23. Just let me rework and continue that. It may took a few more days.

I don't remember the rest of this thread. But wouldn't it suffice to just update os2-base? That changes the platform.

That's usually not required. Without details that lead to a reproducible scenario, that's not very useful.

Hi Rich, thanks for making the internal delay configurable. I have set it to 700 after installing your version 1.0.15 over Andi's last one and shutdown works now properly again. (Take my MSI FM2+ system as one that needs more delay than your default value of 250 ms. And there are surely more who don't like the beeps of the other delay.)

Added: Just found the mentioned ticket. Add here's Rich's rev. 1452 in Trac.

Bennie, does your mouse work in a normal ArcaOS installation, without virtualization, on the same hardware?

(I guess, the same as Pete, that it's a VirtualBox issue on Redhat.)

Yes, you are right. But when I see which tools are below /pub/os2/dev that aren't languages, I find it confusing to have a few under /pub/os2/dev/tools. I would just move /pub/os2/dev/tools with their dirs to /pub/os2/dev. Example: /pub/os2/dev/make.

IMO another dir that could receive some rework is /pub/os2/dev/util. In case of the one that I've contributed (, all files in /pub/os2/dev/help are rather utils. So why have some of them below dev/utils and others below dev?

Another dir is /pub/os2/dev/misc. I don't have an idea so far. So, there are utils, tools and misc. I would either remove them all or move many packages to either utils or tools and remove the others.

OK, That sounds reasonable. But generally, I prefer to have that stuff below the language dir itself. For the mentioned case it would be /dev/smalltalk/tools instead of /dev/tools/smalltalk.

IMO /dev/tools should be completely removed.

(It should be avoided that someone has to look for something in multiple dirs.)
