Programming / Re: Porting apps with GCC - Whops, SDL not found???
« on: October 20, 2014, 08:46:35 am »
Look in config.log, there's probably a conflict with headers or iconv and the test program from configure is failing.

It seems that the sdl-config script coming with the latest SDL releases is somehow broken. I had to edit the paths inside to refer \extras\include and \extras\lib as the older versions.

It still doesn't work, but I'm on my way to solve the problem. Thanks Dave!

Programming / Porting apps with GCC - Whops, SDL not found???
« on: October 17, 2014, 09:17:41 am »
Now, this puzzles me.

I'm getting back to build some OS/2 ports, and some of them are SDL applications.

I'm using Paul Smedley's build environment, together with the updated GCC (currently I have installed GCC 3.3.5, 4.5.2, 4.7.3 and 4.9.1 in separate /usr/local??? directories).

The last time I tried, (which is months ago) SDL was correctly recognized: all the relevant files are under the \extras directory under the root drive (U:\extras\bin, \lib, \include) and the sdl-config script is correctly located and pointed to by the command files gcc335.cmd (452, 473, 491).

I even managed to build some SDL apps (namely, software related to ZX Spectrum emulation, a version of SDL scavenger and some other little thing).

Now, it seems this doesn't work anymore: even double-checking everything, configure or make cannot find the SDL libs or includes (this depends on the program I'm trying to compile).

As I'm not so much interested in SDL software developing, this doesn't trouble me a lot, but still I'd like to be able to port some other SDL application.

The only thing I changed since the last ports I made is that I installed the latest SDL libraries, copying them over the older files. So everything should be in the correct places: header files in \extras\include, libraries in \extras\lib and so on.

I'm afraid I will have to copy everything in \usr\local???, but this might end in a mess, and I'd like to avoid it and keep the neat structure I already used.

Suggestions, anyone?

Thanks in advance.

Programming / Re: Need help patching SDL
« on: October 17, 2014, 08:59:59 am »
GOT IT !¡!¡ Thanks --- I'll have to wait till tomorrow to check it out.


While we are on it, I have an unresolved question - or two, but maybe I will post the other on another thread.

SDL behaves strangely on Panorama VESA: it seems it's working in a wrong color space, like RGB instead of BGR (or viceversa). That means, if I fire up an SDL application on my machines (which all have had Panorama VESA in the last times), I see blue instead of red, while the green channel is always ok.

Is it possible to change this behaviour via some SDL options, or do we need some patch to the source code?

I'd gladly take the challenge, once I solve the second problem I'm encountering...

Which version of uniaud are you using? 1.9.26 is the latest supported one. Do you have an SMP system? Do you have ACPI installed, if so, which version and with which parameters?

IIRC I'm using the latest one (but I could be wrong) which comes with eCS 2.1. I've got an SMP system working with the latest ACPI - and AFAICR, it's in APIC mode working good. I'll post the relevant informations as soon as I have my machine up and running.

Which TeX system do you use with TeXStudio?

I'd become somewhat acquainted with VTeX and it's graphics subsystem, but in my early times I used emTeX for my older works. I used VTeX to rewrite completely some 360 pages of an University course (with more than 300 equations and images ;) )

I'm SO dumb. I downloaded Qpdfview, copied the dll and voila, it worked.

Time to get back TeXing.

Applications / TeXStudio and POPP46.DLL - missing?
« on: October 07, 2014, 08:57:16 am »
Hello all,

another question related to TeXStudio.

I was able to fire up TeXStudio (didn't have the time to give it a serious try, I admit, but I have some work in TeX and LaTeX which I want to complete) until the last three versions.

Now, if I try to launch it from WPS or Larsen Commander, only the Properties page opens up. From the command line, the system states it wants POPP46, which I suppose is a part of the popplr library.

Still I can't seem to find it anywhere. Yesterday evening I tried to surf all the Netlabs pages for Qt 4 but without success (even if I was able to download some other interesting software, but this is another story).

Is there some solution? I surely did wrong somewhere but now I'm stuck and with little to no time to experiment...

Thanks in advance.

Indeed, it seems I definitely *have* some problems with uniaud. For one, even if Unimix does its work correctly (identifying all the controls and modifying them) I don't have any sound. LBMix doesn't even recognize a Master output.

Seems I'll have to revert to an older uniaud version.

I solved PSI/2 problems by turning all audio off, which is another symptom of my driver problems - rather strange though, MAME/2 works without any problem: no sound at all but not a single crash (the same goes for SDLMAME).

Yes Martin, everything is updated. There's still to try. Yesterday, though, I disabled sound completely and it seemed working fine.

I need to fine-tune something and maybe it will work without problems. (And I still have to understand why unimix claims audio is fine, but I don't have any sound. Puzzles me, and there's not enough time :( )

Yes, this is one thing to consider. Thanks, I'll try ASAP.

Hello all, I searched the forum for a similar argument but found nothing, so here I am.

I installed the latest PSI and gave it a try, still it has the same bad behavior of the earlier releases: suddendly it hangs the WPS, with or without Firefox running.

I'd like to use PSI for my chat sessions, which usually I do at late evening, but this PSI problem is puzzling me.

Did someone of you notice some strange behavior of this software? (needless to say, the Windows version works fine) I have little time to fiddle with its settings, but I feel it could be something like incoming message notifications or something similar.

Thanks in Advance.

Programming / Re: Doxygen and XWorkplace
« on: August 28, 2014, 09:00:23 am »
ISTR Doxygen is used to document a number of big projects, like OpenSG (I'm using it at work).

Still, it is a (albeit good) starting point: I feel that a real documentation needs to explain not only the class structures but many other things.

For one, the same OpenSG I'm using is thoroughly described by the Doxygen pages over the web, but still is poorly documented and fairly difficult to use.

« on: June 25, 2014, 08:29:04 am »
As a developer, I would like to see the OS/2 API documentation project enhanched. But first things first: I think that a Config.sys complete and updated documentation is more useful to the majority of users.

I'm running a 2 month old 4.1 build. It works very good so far.


Hello Silvan,
where did you find this release? I seem unable to fetch one.


Applications / Re: A-Oo 4
« on: June 11, 2014, 09:06:12 am »
I would be very interested in giving it a try under Warp 4.52.
Do you think this could be possible?


This shouldn't be a problem. I don't remember if I had good results (maybe not, but then again, I had a clumsy OOo install).
If you're trying the Yuri Dario build, just follow his instructions regarding the needed DLLs.
