Programming / Re: How to specify wlink as linker for gcc?
« on: May 30, 2014, 04:44:37 pm »
Most everything needed can be installed with yum/rpm and has the advantage of being a standard environment. One problem with GCC and home spun environments is sometimes no one else can repeat what you did.

You can just do it at the command prompt or as Andy said, as part of a script to set up the environment.
Note that you also have to use -Zomf as a linking flag or else gcc will default to calling ld.exe for linking

If I understand correctly there is no hardware acceleration so not much different the our Panorama driver.

Finally got around to testing the newest OS/4 kernel on my Warp V4+latest free fixes install. It hangs when it should go graphical. The new Doscall1.dll did seem to make the system more stable though, it's a somewhat crufty install from '96 or so and crashes if I enable more then one core but runs fine with one core and doesn't have the FPU problems that newer versions of OS/2 have

os/4 is SMP kernel  and  cannot work with UNI doscall1 from Warp V4
you should use dc1 from os/4 package or from Warp 4.5 SMP

interesting to see comport log with that crash

Missed this post until now  :)

I have the SMP kernel and SMP doscall1 as I've tried to enable both cores previously. No comport on this box. Wish there was if only for the modem.

ecomstation I'm sure is trademarked so I'd guess we should be expecting something more like 1.0 with whatever name Lewis and friends come up.

It looks like eCS is dead and others are taking up the torch, see Lewis's anouncement

It's depressing how many people just vanish. I assume they move on but then I think that if I dropped dead there'd just be another one gone quiet.

Lewis announced it on the ecs-tech mailing list. There are other things happening that agree with it as well but it is not for me to announce what others are doing. There should be more announcements.

Setup & Installation / Re: driver trouble with Warp 3
« on: May 18, 2014, 07:03:59 pm »
You need 3.3.5 installed before you can install any newer GCC versions, don't know if it'll work on V3 as no-one tests.

Yup, working fine. :)

That's good to hear as I'm sure at one point it was broken.  Now you should be able to run most everything though you are going to run into memory shortages.

What the heck? Who are you?

I'm sorry, but stfu & gtfo.

Calm down. If Mathias wants to get Warp V3 working well, well let him. I think that any good patches that he comes up with should be accepted and he should be encouraged to get Warp V3 working.

The main problem with Warp V3 is lack of high memory support so you're left with 512MBs per process and much of that is taken by DLLs. Try running Firefox in 300MBs of memory.
You might be able to use a Warp Server kernel to work around this issue as high memory support was first added to the server editions.
BTW, all the gcc dlls are available as warpin packages at ftp://ftp.netlabs.org/pub/gcc/ along with GCC 3.3.5 and kLIBC. You need 3.3.5 installed before you can install any newer GCC versions, don't know if it'll work on V3 as no-one tests. If not you're left with old EMX for GCC.
There are probably some decent GUI editors that depend on Java or QT, start at svn.netlabs.org/

Applications / Re: How to make Tor work on eCS
« on: May 15, 2014, 05:29:13 am »

However, I now find that I cannot access my Virgin SuperHub configuration and see this instead:-

Failed to Connect       
       
          The connection was refused when attempting to contact 192.168.0.1.

Looks like tor works too well. Guess I need to look into setting up a tor configuration file to allow me access to my router/cable modem configuration. All help welcome.


Just go to SeaMonkeys proxy preferences and add localhost, 127.0..1, 192.168.0.1 etc to the No Proxy for box. See the example right under the box

I get the same with Firefox 17.0.11 (Mozilla/5.0 (OS/2; Warp 4.5; rv:17.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/17.0). Why does Firefox not report the correct version? Security? I notice they still report the same build date as FF4 though about:buildconfig does report 20140307213027 as the build ID.
Interesting that SeaMonkey reports 10 lower then Firefox built from the same tree and same environment.
