Hi

I installed PMMERGE6111 on my ArcaoS 5.0.6 system and rebooted.

As the system switched into graphical mode there was some beeps but then the Desktop loaded and all seemed to work fine - until the system froze while browsing with Dooble maybe 20 minutes after boot.

I tried this 3 times with the same result ie  rebooted , had beeps at switch to graphical mode and system froze within 20 minutes.

No Trap screen, no logs - except for xwp startup logs which do not show any problem suggesting the beeps happen before xwp starts.

Hi jacco123

I seem to recall this problem from many years ago and the answer is possibly related to Windows lan settings - something to do with LM ANNOUNCE...

A quick hunt using google gives this "how to" which seems to agree with me  https://www.os2world.com/forum/index.php?topic=2339.0

Hopefully that will be of help.

Hi Dave

Not really a "c" coder myself but this does not look right

int get_key(int do_delay, char *val)
{
.
.
.
   int n = select(term_fd+1,&r,NULL,NULL,&t);
   if(n > 0 && FD_ISSET(term_fd,&r) && read(term_fd,val,1) == 1)
      return 1;
   return 0;
}


I would expect an If/Else statement:-

   if(n > 0 && FD_ISSET(term_fd,&r) && read(term_fd,val,1) == 1)
      return 1
           else
           return 0;
}


As I said I am not a "c" coder...

Hi Glenn

Are you using a multiprocessor system? - Just wondering if using markexe.exe (from os/2 toolkit) to "mark" the executable (dux.exe ?) as mpunsafe will help...

Hi All

Having just had to login again the earlier tip by Dave Yeo about setting cookie policy to Save All does not seem to cure this problem.
Any other ideas?

Hi Remy

Might be worth checking the following are installed, replace any i686 versions with P4 versions

libxslt  - 1.132-1 P4
libxml2  - 2.9.10-3 P4
libssp  - 9.2.0-5 P4
libstdc++  - 9.2.0-5 P4
libc  - 0.1.10-1 P4
libgcc  - 9.2.0-5 P4
libgcc-fwd  - 9.2.0-5 P4
libicu  - 68.1-1 P4


Other than that I am out of ideas...


Regards

Pete

Hi Remy

I saw your video and was surprised to see Dooble crash almost immediately on opening a page. I never had Dooble crash that quick, I usually got at least 10 minutes use before it crashed. It does suggest a support package may not be at a required level. Checking my notes these are what I needed to update to extend Dooble uptime here

Replaced libcx and libgcc packages (pulls in gcc-stdc++-shared-library, libgcc-fwd, libssp, libssp-fwd, libstc++) with P4 versions- were i686

libicu is current release, libxslt is previous release - all P4 versions

The above resulted in Dooble running for around 30 to 40 minutes before crashing - without an exceptq log.

I updated pthread package to 0.2.6-1 P4 a couple of days ago and that seems to give me more Dooble "uptime" before Dooble simply disappears - watched a 45 minute video and browsed ebay for over 30 minutes without a crash, I actually closed the browser rather than it closing itself. Has not resolved the problem completely though as Dooble does still disappear without obvious cause.


When Dooble crashes there are no exceptq logs produced here - you can make Dooble produce a log by starting from the command line. Open a window in \usr\bin  - or wherever dooble.exe is located - and enter

dooble.exe 2>&1 | tee dooble.log

which should produce a dooble.log in the dooble.exe directory. Not sure if it will be of any use as the logs produced here seem to be full of javascript errors...


Looking at your video I also see your installation does something my Dooble cannot do: Open a webpage in the only tab after starting. Attempting to load a webpage from Favourites, History or entering a url results in Dooble loading the page but failing to display it - the page is loaded but blank! Usually takes opening another tab or 2 before I can get any webpage to load *and display* - and, No, using Reload does not display the content of the blank page.


Hmm... browsing ebay... seems some ebay options are simply not visible with Dooble unless you know where to put your mouse pointer and click. I am looking at this page  https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2380057.m570.l1313&_nkw=proac&_sacat=0  and notice the box that should display the List or Gallery view option is blank - that is the empty box to the right of the box containing the text Best Match. This is probably the same problem with SVG as mentioned in this discussion https://www.os2world.com/forum/index.php?topic=3058.msg34767


How do I get os2world forum to "remember me"? - I login with the Forever option but next time I visit I have to login...

Hi roberto

No, Ii definitely do not have that file anywhere.
Possibly an application created that file on your system so *before* deleting make a backup somewhere.

Hi roberto

I would give that a try except I do not seem to have a xslt-config file anywhere...
What directory did you find the file in?

Hi ivan

No, there is not a version of NoScript- but Daves "block list" posted above and only recently imported into Dooble here certainly helps block adverts on the few sites I have tried so far some of which are almost hidden by adverts otherwise.

Now, if I can get Dooble to run for longer than around 30 minutes - logs show js errors as last entries, maybe using the "block list" will reduce those errors. Will have to test...

Pete

Hi Wayne

After updating lots of packages in order to try Dooble I found AOO 4.1.7 would no longer start - splash screen shows then app exited.

I initially thought libicu need backleveling but that did not cure the problem.

Then I remembered from trying SimpleBrowser that libxslt is also a possible problem. Sure enough, backleveling libxslt to 1.1.32-1(oc00) resolved the problem - currently using libicu 68.1-1 without problems.

Pete

Hi Silvan

When Dooble simply closes - as experienced by mauro, Remy and myself - no trp files are generated.

If Dooble is started from the command line using
dooble.exe 2>&1 | tee dooble.log
A log does get generated but no trap file.

I have several dooble log files that show  js errors as the last line eg:-

js: A cookie associated with a cross-site resource at http://youtube.com/ was set without the `SameSite` attribute. A future release of Chrome will only deliver cookies with cross-site requests if they are set with `SameSite=None` and `Secure`. You can review cookies in developer tools under Application>Storage>Cookies and see more details at https://www.chromestatus.com/feature/5088147346030592 and https://www.chromestatus.com/feature/5633521622188032.
js: 'window.webkitStorageInfo' is deprecated. Please use 'navigator.webkitTemporaryStorage' or 'navigator.webkitPersistentStorage' instead.
js: Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'postMessage' of undefined


I may have been trying to watch or pause a video here:-

Possibly of interest: When a trap file is generated it has this filename format 62667a10-0055_1e-DOOBLE-exceptq.txt so people should not search for *.trp files in relation to dooble but should search for *DOOBLE-exceptq.txt

Hi All

I replaced libcx and libgcc packages (pulls in gcc-stdc++-shared-library, libgcc-fwd, libssp, libssp-fwd, libstc++) with P4 versions - they were i686 - and have had Dooble running for longer than 15 minutes at a time.

 @mauro: You may want to check if the above helps.

Looking at the last log generated I see quite a few lines like this:-

js: A cookie associated with a cross-site resource at http://youtube.com/ was set without the `SameSite` attribute. A future release of Chrome will only deliver cookies with cross-site requests if they are set with `SameSite=None` and `Secure`.

js: 'window.webkitStorageInfo' is deprecated. Please use 'navigator.webkitTemporaryStorage' or 'navigator.webkitPersistentStorage' instead.
js: Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'postMessage' of undefined


Could the last line be responsible for Dooble closing?

Pete

Hi All

The real downside to Dooble here is that it closes after 10 to 15 minutes use - no beeps,squeaks or log files. Dooble can be restarted immediately for another 10 to 15 minutes use.

I was presuming it is NSS/NSPR related - the same problem Mozilla has with the latest NSS/NSPR - but if others are not having this problem maybe it is not.
What versions of NSS/NSPR are other people using? - I currently have NSPR 4.23.0-1 and NSS 3.47.0-2  installed.

If not a NSS/NSPR problem what else should I look at?

Pete
