Networking / Re: Samba share woes
« on: June 18, 2013, 11:32:10 pm »
As we eCS users are now switching to SAMBA, we have similar woes trying to learn new networking terms and practices, combined with our own SAMBA still needing more users to find and report those last few bugs. How do IBM F&P use passwords, access control lists and workgroups? How does SAMBA? How to get them to do it the same way?

On the other hand, SAMBA for OS/2 might connect to Linux SAMBA without much fuss.

There isn't enough money in the fund to buy a wireless driver. All we can do is wait for someone to make one and give it to us.

That isn't unreasonable -- some really smart people have looked at building the wireless driver, and I think they will make one after some time.

One thing that makes sense is to use the existing funds to help finance the Firefox project. There is probably enough in the fund to buy 3 or 4 more weeks of development time.

The bottom line is that the funds were contributed to improve the platform, so applying the funds to a project that is active and can use funds will get something for the money right away.

Marketplace / IBM Developer Connection
« on: May 25, 2013, 05:12:05 pm »
I have a large collection of OS/2 materials, but I no longer have space to keep them. While I don't mind tossing a lot of it, I wanted to know if anyone would like a copy of the IBM Developer Connection. I have 4 copies.

These are notebooks of CD-ROMS that IBM distributed to developers from 1996 to 1998 that have many products on them of potential interest to OS/2 enthusiasts.

Contact me if interested, and I'll work out how to ship to you. International is no problem. eBay may be involved if they make things easier. (for international customs, they do.) I am in California, USA.

The attachment is the content. Two copies are are member-only and two are member plus advanced.

I have run eCS 1.2r in a VMWare ESXi container and it works easily.

I can't offer any help with the Adaptec, but looking at the current offerings, wouldn't a IBM System x3100 M4 (or M3) run eCS pretty easily?

It's a nice movie, and I like that so many of the Slate features work.

I'd like it if more users would post about good eCS and OS/2 installs.

General Discussion / Re: Hybrid "64-Bit" eComStation
« on: February 19, 2013, 01:02:05 am »
One of the strong points of running OS/2 is to continue to run the 16-bit parts and old programs. But with the x86-64 architecture, the real mode and virtual mode are not available to programs running in long (64-bit) mode.

Getting OS/2 to run in long mode would be a long struggle. We'd lose a lot of what makes OS/2 what it is.

It would probably be easier just to port the parts of OS/2 that you like to Linux.

Hardware / Re: New hardware that works with ECS2.X
« on: February 14, 2013, 11:59:58 pm »
It would be nice if someone would make a website with useful hardware information on it.

eComStation.RU is doesn't work because it is too difficult to find anything, and there isn't much information there in the first place.

So mostly you buy stuff and hope you can get it to work...

Well, OS/2 Warp 4 is gone. I'm selling a PC DOS 2000, which is off-topic, but I have quite a bit of spare OS/2 items, and I'd like them to go to a good home. Anyone looking for something in particular?

Link to PC DOS 2000 if anyone is interested...

Merry Christmas everyone!

Thanks to all the people who have made OS/2 World possible.
