Mind that the "root" of OS/2 DOS is not the same as the "root" for OS/2 itself. So there is a change that your BBS software is looking in C:\ or similar instead of the S/2 DOS directory. BBS software did always run very well in the setups I had back in the BBS days. May be you have to tweak here and there in the setup of DOS with memory and alike. So find out in what directory your BBS software is looking. BBS software is in my mind always 8.3, more was not invented in those days.

Well... I ran the install on linux, and sure enough:
Code: [Select]
-- Up-to-date: /usr/local/Qt-6.5.1/examples/quick/animation/examples/quick/animation/shared/

So it installs into a similar path to OS/2 - but linux is obviously able to find it.....
With finding out how Java programs works on OS/2 I had very frequent the problem that the complete file specification was too long for OS/2, there is a limit. May be this plays here too. The complete file specification wil then be truncated and if you don't have an error logger specific on that part you will never know.

I also saw reports of MoneyDance working. It runs just the first part to create a file (which don't get created), and the rest does not run.
Supposedly 2011 version should work.

Any help is welcome.

You need a license key to run it, that's why I don't have it in my pages and probably its the why you can't create files.

Hi, I'm just checking the old news archive.

There used to be a Geometria version that used to run with our Java, but I can not find it anymore.
I don't understand this, you can download it from my Java pages, what is the problem?

Today I have added a small program after a long time again. It is called CharMap;

We have already such a program, but this one is written in Java. I have to use it on my Linux system, real messy system (I know that I stand on some toes  :o, sorry for that). The program works in Java 11 and it does work also in our Java 6. I was afraid that our system might be to alien, but no, all fonts are listed. And as you can see in the picture it also find our clipboard.

You can find the program on my site in English (some sort) or in Dutch

Have fun, keep on asking and see you later,

Hi Joop, you can only upload to /pub/incoming. You need to include a text file with the same name as the zip except .txt instead of .zip. README.TEMPLATE is the template for the text file, seems to have gone missing from /pub/incoming so attached.
Okay, done it, uploaded SportTracker and Geogebra to /pub/incoming, Succes. Let's see how it proceeds.

Thanks Dave, there is a page with some information how to, but all directories and files in that particular page do give errors or you get the message that the file can't be found. So also for README.TEMPLATE. I going to try again.

Hi Joop

If you want to upload files to hobbes, put the directory where you want to store it.
- Maybe SportTracker will be good to go "/pub/java/apps/misc" since there is not an specific category for it.
- Geogebra, I think it should to go "/pub/java/apps/science/math", to keep the same structure as the /os2/ files.

Tried, but it don't  go. I use NFTP, but no files are send and I do have the directory of Hobbes /pub/java/apps/misc in one part of the program visible. Password or so stuff?

Hi Joop

I had completed the Java upload to hobbes today.
I'm only missing the latest working version of GeoGebra and SportsTracker. I can not found the older versions that worked on OS/2 (java 1.6) online.
Managed to get online for my homepage, hobbes and os2 world. So the important stuff is covered  8). I probably can upload above packages to Hobbes /pub/java, but can I also upload it strait to where it should be available or is only /pub/java available for "outsiders"?

Thanks Martin, will look into it. I copy old to new and change a few things, something went wrong with this one. The strange thing is that I always test the stuff, probably this slipped through.
I have copied the Java stuff from Hobbes "Hobbes java apps.ods" and sort it alphabetic "Hobbes java apps alfabetisch.ods". I did it in LibreOffice Calc on my Raspberry Pi 400. So this is one step ahead.

Can I upload it to Hobbes?
Yes, Just send me a link (or post here if it is less than 5MB) and I can upload it to hobbes.

I have visited Hobbes and then the Java corner, there are already a lot of packages available. Is there an easy way I can download some kind of list in order to see whats missing and what need to be upgraded? Example Rachota is same version, but on my site it does also contain Dutch.
In Hobbes /pub/java/apps/misc you can find Data Crow 4.0.1 (2014-07-25), why not in /pub/java/apps/database/?

Hi Joop

SportsTracker ( was moved from SourceForge to Github and sadly the older released got removed:


License is GPL v2, so if you can include the old 5.3.0 version on your site, that would be great.

Because I'm working on a Rapsberry Pi 400 I have a higher version of Java. So I thought about a few upgrades, among them Sportstracker. Contacted the author, but that was a bad idea. He is now only supporting Windows and Apple with complete packages, that's inclusive Java in executable versions. Even if you download that you can't unwrap the stuff. He was very unfriendly and won't support something else. I will see if I can fix it, I have to mind the space for my pages. Can I upload it to Hobbes?

Hi Joop

The Geogebra download link is not working:
Sadly I was not able to find the GeoGebra-Unixlike-Installer- file.
Website moved, versions are unclear if it will work with Java 6. Packages are split up to stand alone apps. Classic is still available, of course also higher version numbers. Have to think it over what to do, probably best is to upload my version, but have to see if this is allowed.
I can not also find JClic version that you have:
JClic also has an other home, its still there, version just minor upgrade.

Please let me know if you still have a copy arround.
I have all copies on my system.

Anyone else's google foo better than mine?

Trying to track down:
Code: [Select]
3b. JAXB 2.1 (,
    install it with java -jar JAXB2_20061211.jar)

I found a reference at , but cannot find it there. Perhaps dmik knows where it is stored?
I was trying to avoid pestering dmik but I've sent him an email.


Is this the same?
