Applications / Re: Creating some apps RPM packages
« on: June 22, 2021, 11:49:37 pm »
But I still haven't full started with the RPM installers. On my last attempts I got stuck with the WPS integration to create icons and set the properties of WPS objects (Path, working directory, etc). I usually get the answer that it works, but I'm doing it wrong, but nobody tells me how to do it right.

I do this using REXX scripts. This is called from the %post section of the .spec file for installation and from the %postun section for uninstallation. My restartwps.exe utility is also used to restart the desktop correctly.

My .spec:
ftp://os2.snc.ru/pub/freerdp/RPM/ofreerdp.spec

REXX scripts and restartwps.exe:
ftp://os2.snc.ru/pub/freerdp/RPM/spec-tools/

(see "restartwps.exe -?" for help)

It is very stupid to wage this war. OS/4 developers do not have any material benefit from their activities. OS/4 is a wonderful project, a huge number of problems have been fixed, the system has accelerated significantly. It has been repeatedly said that no IBM source codes are used.

The senseless confrontation only spends the strength of developers and distracts from useful work, for a small group of users of OS/2 the harm from this is enormous.

Let’s make efforts to develop the system, and not engage in dirty politics. This will benefit everyone - and Arca Noae whose system is improved through such third-party projects, and users get new opportunities.

Programming / Re: how to stay a window on top
« on: May 09, 2020, 05:21:58 pm »
And I still did not manage to float on top only between my program windows and windows of other programs can hide my top window. WS_TOPMOST is system wide.

As far as I remember, WXP / XPager uses a hook for these purposes ("Stay on top" option). Probably, standard methods for this are not provided.

It looks like there was a mistake in the signature when building the previous version.
In reality, there are no changes in cputemp, it is only recompiled.

You might be interested in the results I get from my AMD Ryzen box.  Sorry it is split but I only have a 1920x1200 monitor.

Thanks! It’s a little strange for me that at least the manufacturer has not determined on a USB mouse and keyboard. Check if the usb.ids file is in the %etc% directory?

It would be interesting to see the results under OS/4. There, the picture with your PCI bridges will be much clearer and more logical.

See ticket 0002740 at the Arca Noae bug tracker.

Solved. Thanks.

There are also no problems with drivers from Lars, can be found on Hobbes. I even have one device (USB microscope) that works well with these drivers, but doesn’t work with Arca drivers.

One obswrvation:
The port and memory ranges are too big by one,that is,the highest port/memory address should be one less as it is now.

Indeed. Thank you! What a stupid mistake.  :)

Networking / Re: VNC/FTP Asus RT-AC1750U
« on: February 16, 2020, 03:26:34 pm »
Need to set up a new Asus RT-AC1750U for accepting incoming VNC and FTP connections.

Here is what I use:
  http://os2.snc.ru/product-VNC.html
  http://www.pmoylan.org/pages/os2/FtpServer.html

For VNC, you need to forward port 5900 (or another non-standard one that can be specified in the VNC server settings) forward on your router.

Peter's FTP server allows you to specify a range of ports for external connections. This range must be forwarded on your router.

Hardware Explorer 0.0.6 is available for download.
  http://os2.snc.ru/product-HwExplorer.html

See "History of changes" on the web page (or whatsnew.txt).
Many thanks to everyone who helped.
Special thanks to Lars Erdmann for helping with the code receiving the VBE data.

Using the AOS 12.4 prerelease driver, the serial number of my USB sticks does show, it's blank on my Logitech unified receiver.
I have one stick that when inserted make the tree view of the Hardware Explorer redraw every  or 3 seconds (2.5 seconds?) with the text seeming to jump slightly which doesn't look good. Other sticks are fine, this one is formatted EXT4 but partitioned by our LVM if it matters. Currently using the OS4 kernel, I'll test with the AOS one later.
Here's the properties of it, it's labeled a Duracell 128GB stick/

Manufacturers often do not indicate the serial number in the strings of a USB device.
The twitching tree problem has already been solved; this will be included in the next version 0.0.6.

Interestingly I tried the OS4 kernel yesterday and Hardware Explorer displayed the correct video card etc in the VGA properties under the PCI Info tab. With the AOS kernel, this tab doesn't exist.

Under OS/4, the system Resource Manager provides more meaningful information in a logical way. Hardware Explorer uses all these features.
We would have had more information about PCI cards if all the driver developers were not too lazy to indicate things like PCI_DevFunc in their products.

There is also a logical FLAW in USBRESMG.SYS in that it gets totally confused if two attached devices have the very same vendor and product id (yes, this happens, even with devices that look completely different !).
That typically leads to hangs/crashes when reading string descriptors. Would need to rewrite/change USBRESMG.SYS to also take the serial number into account (I think there even is a shitty Microsoft specific descriptor for that) to distinguish devices but oh well …

This is a very deplorable situation. Is there any chance that the problem will be fixed in your USBRESMG.SYS?

Hi Digi, ideally would be the info shown in the screen object. I'm currently using SNAP and it shows monitor, chipset, and memory.
....
Hopefully there's a similar way to query Panorama.

Thanks for the advice. I implemented this for a future version 0.0.6. But Panorama is installed on all my systems. Can you tell me where I can try to search for information to get such data from Panorama?

I can say from my own experience that it is a bad idea in general to directly reread descriptors over and over again.

You already talked about this earlier and I took into account your advice by minimizing the use of USBRESMG. Description strings for each device in HwE are read only once and stored to avoid repeated calls. The USBRESM$ file handle also opens only once.
Thanks for the advice!

The fix worked.  Hwmanager is now working great with ArcaOS's 32 bit USB drivers.

Hardware Explorer 0.0.5 ?

The problem is already known. There is a ticket 0002740 on the AN bugtracker.
A fixed driver USBRESMG.SYS is attached to this ticket.
