Should the XFree86 stuff be mixed with regular desktop programs? Same with the Windows stuff. Seems to me they should be kept separate so people don't mistakenly try to run them and get frustrated.

Multimedia / Re: Updated Uniaud32 build

The new driver works totally on system sounds. but i does not give audio from or VLC played Cds. In fact no CD player works with this driver and I am not sure the problem is not elseware i my system.

Have you tried the classic CD player, after making sure it's set to use digital transfer under the View menu?
I take it you are using one of the Mozilla apps to visit Youtube, them and VLC use libkai, which will default to using UNIAUD to play sounds and is somewhat broken. Make sure that you have "SET KAI_AUTOMODE=DART" in your environment. You could also try "SET KAI_AUTOMODE=UNIAUD", you never know.

Storage / Re: exFat or FAT32 ?
« on: September 26, 2021, 02:20:08 am »
Hi Martin, ArcaOS doesn't support exFat, there's patents and other issues. You will have to ask some of these questions to the developer, he might see this post and might not.
Basically Arca Noae has forked the fat32 driver, removed exFat etc and are trying (and mostly succeeding) to make it more stable.

Utilities / Re: MultiUser support for OS/2

  • No real security because the OS doesn't provide that.

Well Warp Server did support ACL's with HPFS386, which regular HPFS respected. Seems that JFS also supports ACL's.

Just changing %HOME% (and perhaps a couple of other things) can give minimal multi-user support where each user has there own settings.
When my Son was about 4 years old and interested in the one household computer, I switched to Linux for a year or more, so much better knowing that he could only damage his own environment, then he got his own computer. At least he grew up using multiple operating systems, especially as he had a Mac at school.

"/pub/os2/apps/docviewer" sounds good, or at least I can't think of anything better (more general)

I'm using Mozilla/5.0 (OS/2; Warp 4.5; rv:38.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/38.0 SeaMonkey/2.35 with User agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686; rv:89.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/89.0

Just put to url bar.

That works good enough with SM 2.42.9. The scroll bar is broken but the down arrow key works. The side panel also seems to be missing.

Hi Martin,
I unzip it and run it, its starting up without a error..
I use Arcanoae

Same result here, runs fine after unzipping. Did you run the install script?

Packaged version with updated makefile and minor changes (comments and an added include) to make the compiler happy.

OK, that made the compiler dislike C++ type comments :) After fixing and adding a missing include, seems to work.
I'll package it after work and post the fixed package.

Might want to see if Lars has any suggestions about the CFLAGS such as using the multi-thread library.

1) I suspect that OPENDLG.LIB was a library that was necessary to build a OS/2 version 1.3 PM application. Of course, the question is, why is it still listed in the makefile ? Maybe that was an omission to remove it.

2) I suspect that problem with CPPOS30.LIB is that it follows a newer OMF library format than what LINK386 understands. The easiest thing is to replace "link386" with "ilink /NOFREE". /NOFREE will force ilink to follow the same command line syntax as LINK386 but it will be able to link to CPPOS30.LIB.
In any case, it is not wrong to link to the RTL dynamically (but it might be a better idea to link against CPPOM30.LIB, that is, specify /GM+ as compiler switch: link multi-threaded).

David, can you post the makefile as you have corrected it ?

OK, the "ilink /NOFREE" fixed the linking and produced a working present.exe. Thanks

Here's the working exe.

Trying to compile with VACPP v3.08, I see it wants an unknown library, OPENDLG.LIB, which I nor Google have never heard off. Removing it results in this error,
Code: [Select]
LINK386 :  fatal error L1104: G:\IBMCPP\LIB\cppos30.lib : not valid library
Which I don't understand as cppos30.lib seems to be a valid import library. Seems that is the runtime and there should be a way to statically link it instead of depending on a runtime DLL. Anyone know the recipe?

I had a quick look at the package. The readme does say,
The current version is a simple port from my OS/2 1.3 version that I wrote
two years ago.

So I assume the author ported it to 32 bit OS/2 v2.  Possibly a simple recompile would fix it or show where the error is.

Hi Lars, likely yours is the P4 build and mine is the i686 build, or the opposite, I haven't booted to that partition to check but would explain the aprox 1/2 hour difference.
