lsusb shows the joystick, but SDL2 doesn‘t. Since I don’t use hidapi directly, it have no error message.

By now, I have finished work on libusb (hopefully). I'll ask BWW to create an updated RPM. You might want to try the updated version and see if that helps. Proper support of "libusb_get_port_numbers" is still a problem (what error message did you get when trying out hidapi ?)

A little status update: I have enable HIDAPI support in SDL2 and it's functions are called, but testjoystick doesn't recognizes my USB joystick, yet.

I know that this can be argued forever but I would NOT put "VCompat" under /pub/dos.
I agree with that, since I also have in my mind that "/pub/dos" is for applications that runs in DOS and also on DOSVDM, not for specifically OS/2 VDM system utilities.

What might be reasonable is to have a new subdir "/pub/os2/system/drivers/vdd" to place these kind of drivers.
I also think that is a good idea. I need to keep thinking about it as I check "/pub/os2/util/system" that seems to crowded.

Since there is "/pub/os2/system/x11", I was thinking we may have "/pub/os2/system/vdm" (Virtual DOS machine) and possible also "/pub/os2/system/win32" for the Odin based libraries (Instead of "/pub/os2/win32os2").

But I'm still in brainstorm since I haven't started updating the "/pub/os2/system/" directory.

The last "tame" that runs under OS/2 is one you can't register.  You can register later ones that runs under WinNT and Vista.

I suspect /MDOS instead of /VDD.  It's the directory where the stuff ends up in OS/2.

I know that this can be argued forever but I would NOT put "VCompat" under /pub/dos.

"VCompat" is a 32-bit OS/2 VDD (virtual device driver). It CANNOT be loaded by the DOS operating system. The same holds true for "VSound" and "VDMA" (from the same author and in the same directory as "vcompat").

"2GBFix" on the other hand is a DOS TSR (Terminate and Stay Resident) program that can be executed under a real DOS or inside an OS/2 VDM.

What might be reasonable is to have a new subdir "/pub/os2/system/drivers/vdd" to place these kind of drivers.


By the way: the "2GBFix" functionality is included in "VCompat". In short: it's easier and preferrable to use "VCompat" as it also has many additional DOS fixes.

I normally poke DOS stuff for OS/2 in a directory \MDOS under the OS2 files.  This is a sample of what's there.  These particularly work the DOS/OS2 interface.

2gbfix, denynone, dos5iso, doscall, dstart, dualdosc, endvdm, keydos, mscdex22, os2exec, pipdos11, run110, vcdr090

 Volume in drive L is l-tera02     Serial number is 7e1c:4e6c
 Directory of  L:\newapps\os2\mdos\*

Most of this is for running under DOS, or DOS under OS/2 or DOS with OS/2.  pcdv.exe is the reduced version of the PCDOS help system, as a standalone viewer.

Hi

Where do you think it should go "vCompat" (enhanced compatability for OS/2 VDM sessions) ? It is right now on "/pub/os2/util/system".
Should it remain there? or there is a better suggestion.

It is like I'm missing on hobbes something for the DOS-VDM system things like creating a "/pub/os2/system/DOSVDM", but I'm not complete sure about it, and if there are other files for that category.

General Discussion / VMware mouse driver for Windows 3.x
« Last post by Martin Iturbide on December 02, 2021, 06:44:08 pm »
Hi.

I was checking that news. I tried it just for fun on Win-OS2 and killed the mouse (expected). But it was good to see that there is some source code for the Win16 mouse driver is out there.
