Applications / SeaMonkey downloads and Unix permissions
« on: January 08, 2022, 03:10:56 pm »
 Hi everyone,

When downloading files using SeaMonkey 2.42.9esr, the downloaded files are always marked like these are when running 'ls -l':

[D:\junk\dl]ls -l
total 55308
-rw------- 1 root root 28717328 Jan  5 22:26
-rw------- 1 root root  3688568 Jan  7 15:49
-rw------- 1 root root    27946 Jan  8 08:23

 showing they can be read and written by the owner (root) only. Not a big deal in OS/2, because it pays no attention to these permissions anyway. But things get 'interesting' when you copy these files to a SAMBA server, because it DOES pay attention to these, and so from OS/2 if you try to move, copy, rename, open, or execute one of these files on the server, it doesn't work!

 Is there a setting in SeaMonkey that can change this? Or in OS/2? Why is SeaMonkey doing this? Up to now, I just do a 'chmod 777' on the files before copying them to the server, but would really like to not have to do that. Looking for some enlightenment here...

General Discussion / OS/4 Kernel trouble
« on: September 05, 2016, 06:18:50 pm »
  I tried the OS/4 kernel on my laptop for the first time today, and while it boots, I get a repeating desktop startup sound, and no devices with IRQ's above 15 work (sound, network, USB). It is the same with or without the /APIC switch. Has anyone run into this before? One thing unusual about this laptop - when using the Netlabs ACPI.PSD, the hardware manager shows ACPI on IRQ 10. Everything else I have seen uses IRQ 9. Maybe related to the issue? I'll attach the kernlog file.

Hardware / Hi IRQ SCSI adapter
« on: June 02, 2013, 11:22:47 pm »
 Does anyone know of a SCSI adapter that has an eCS driver capable of using IRQs above 15? I am looking to replace an old Adaptec U160 adapter...

 Open Office 3.4 for eCS? A couple of months ago there were some developers test releases, but nothing since. Anyone have any news?
