Programming / Re: ncurses linking error

You'll probably need to link them before ncurses. Assuming you're using a makefile, try make LDFLAGS=-ltinfo

I did mean closer to 10 years old. Unluckily I can't remember the exact models but I've had a couple of ATI cards that with Panorama, somewhat worked with DOS.
Best might be to wait for AOS 5.1

Is it possible to update the video card? Most aprox 10 year old ATI cards I've used at least handle full screen DOS sessions, often also being capable of using ALT-HOME to become windowed.

Try deleting the cookies from OS2World? In SeaMonkey go to about:data. Firefox seems to have removed its cookie handling.

What about full screen DOS sessions? Could also try opening a full screen DOS session and do CTRL-HOME and see if that is a workaround.

Hmm, seems I had already downloaded that file last November but never installed it. This does fix the CPU issue.
Thanks

I chose Bitbucket as it supported Mercurial at the time and besides being a CPU hog, worked fairly well. Then they got bought out by Alsation and went downhill, eventually not only dropping Mercurial but also deleting all Mercurial repositories instead of setting them read only. Also at some point, uploading broke, even on other platforms with up to date browsers.
Now all these sites are implementing Google Web components and Custom Elements with no fallbacks,only supporting the latest 2 versions of a select number of browsers.

Thanks, installed fine with the folder on the desktop.
One problem I see, with both versions, is that it seems to keep one core busy, sometimes spread out to all 4 cores being partially busy. Hate to run it with only one core and even like this, don't want to leave it open. Perhaps only my system with this?

Assuming that other Qt5 apps run ok? There were issues with one of the DLLs from the 2019 release causing excessive CPU usage.....

Hmm, hearts seems to do the same. This is with all the QT5 dlls from netlabs-rel

It's pretty broken now, even with a new profile. Not surprising as JavaScript gets updated and more sites depend on the Google crap and customElements. Too many sites also only target the last 2 releases of a limited set of browsers. Reading the SeaMonkey newsgroup, it's a problem with the latest releases on quite a few sites, even some like Youtube which still works fine here, as well go browsers such as PaleMoon Brave and other forks.
SeaMonkey's newsgroup is now at alt.com.software.seamonkey, Firefox and Thunderbird are nearby as Mozilla has dropped their newsgroups.

To generate code for i686, CFLAGS/CXXFLAGS --march=i686, likewise --march=pentium4 for Pentium 4.
Ultimately for your own use, --march=native.

Could just replace UNIX type paths with LIBC type paths or simply not mention it.

I wrote an Readme for OS/2.
Can somebody please check, if is understandable and correct English?
You find it here: https://github.com/josch1710/FeatherPad/blob/master/README_OS2.md

It's mostly correct and understandable except the Unix style paths. Reading it, I would expect featherpad /w:/config.sys to work and it doesn't. The @unixroot is and isn't a valid Unix path, it's more like %UNIXROOT%\config.sys.
Not sure how to state it better, perhaps "Some Unix style paths work using substitution such as @unixroot/config.sys or absolute paths such as \config.sys or /config.sys"
Still doesn't look quite right though

Programming / Re: Writing on console with WINDOWAPI
« on: July 08, 2021, 05:48:49 pm »
Firefox does it by creating a console window, try doing x:\programs\firefox\firefox -help.
Probably not worth tracing down where the code to do that is as you just end up with a finished console window.

So, I tried some stuff with VIO and such, but I couldn't get it to work.
Do we really need the ability to show the help text on the console?
I could write some readme and install it with the RPM.

Seems a readme including pointing out the tee or less trick would be fine. People already have to do similar to log messages with some programs such as the Mozilla apps.
It's a pretty short help anyways.
