Article Discussions / Old Static Forum Updated
« on: May 20, 2022, 04:19:33 am »
Hi

I had updated the forum script of the OS2World Old Forum:
- https://www.os2world.com/oldforum/
The script had been updated to Simple Machines Forum 2.1.2, which is the latest and have some improved layout.

But there is an issue that it has, but it does not apply to the oldforum, since it is read only. The reply box does not shows the text menu on older browsers like our Firefox 45. It works fine on Dooble, but again, it does not applies since the oldforum is a read only forum.

This means I will not be updating the currently OS2World forum to version 2.1.2 until Dooble became stable.

Regards

Programming / Desktop Apps from JavaScript - Electron?
« on: May 18, 2022, 02:32:24 pm »
Hi

As a theoretical exercise I want to know what would be required to port some javascript applications to run as desktop applications.

I will like to see Element, a Matrix chat tool, running as a desktop application. Currently Element is running on Dooble (You can test it here), so my guess is that we already have several of the libraries that it uses ported to OS/2.

But what is needed to have the "desktop" version of Element running on OS/2 as stand alone?
It seems that part of the trick is Electron ("If you can build a website, you can build a desktop app.")
It is needed for Electron to be ported? Is it some kind of compiler that will interpret Javascript to a desktop OS/2 app? Is it portable to OS/2 or we miss more things?

Regards

Unfortunately, there seems to be little in the way of native OS/2 derived items to test and Best!

In other words, do we need something like "JoystickTestUtils_1998-04-01.zip" but instead of DOS, for OS/2 native?

How are things going related to your Dad?
Also where can I find Makman OS/2?
Hi

I'm going fine, still some paperwork I need finish.

Makman is very basic and you only use the pad to move the Pacman, and I'm not sure if it is the best sample to use a Joypad with OS/2, it is the one that I found first. But you can get it here.

Setup & Installation / Re: UEFI Boot Manager for 5.1
« on: May 17, 2022, 06:13:10 pm »
Hi

I have a related doubt here. From what I understand on GPT partitioned HDD, AiR-BOOT will no longer work. AiR-BOOT is only for MBR, right? or did I get it wrong?

Hi Glenn

I don't have the American Heritage Dictionary by DUX, but the only thing I had seen is that there are two patches at hobbes, but I'm not sure if those are for the same thing you are using? Those are patches for DUX.EXE.

Off Topic discussions / Slowing Down But Not Hitting the Brakes
« on: May 12, 2022, 08:19:23 pm »
Hi Guys

I just want to share with you something off-topic and personal. Last friday (2022-05-06) my father passed away and I had been quite busy dealing with that issue.

My father worked for IBM since the 70’s till 1999 and I learned a lot of things from him that I used in my career and personal life. Thanks to him I learned OS/2 at its time and studied Computer Science. He was a great man and it had been a great loss for me and my family.

During this month I will be dealing with the usual local bureaucracy and taking a closer look to the family business with my brother.

I will be slowing down a little bit with OS2World during the next month, but I will keep connecting to check on a few things, slowly updating the hobbes archive, and I still have on my plans to assist Warpstock 2022 and stream the event with the help of the community.

Thanks to everyone for their condolence via e-mail and social networks.

Regards

Hi

I'm having a lot of problems to install python3 on a new ArcaOS 5.0.7 I created. A lot of errrors with "yum". I can no longer install media-downloader.

I remember that I run media-dowloader before and let it run for a while until it downloads yt-dlp by itself. But sadly I can not longer test it on this VM.

Regards

Hi

I'm guessing hard here, but I think in my case it needs phyton3. phyton3 is only on the exp repository as I can see.
Neil are you using "netlabs-exp" on that machine?

I will keep trying.

Hi

Just to keep posting some updates, I had been doing some progress with "/pub/os2/dev"
I think it looks better, but I still need to keep working with the C, Cplusplus, REXX, EMX and Pascal to put it under /proglang.

To don't get bored, I jump from time to time to reorganise other directories and I found I have some complications on how to organise this two directories:
- "/pub/os2/apps/comm"
- "/pub/os2/util/network"

On COMM, I don't have any experience with BBS and modem communication software. Does Fossil falls under the BBS category?

I'm trying to organise things (if possible), not of what technology they are, but what they do. On "/pub/os2/util/network/" I still need to think about the "lansrv, "tcpip" and "ndis".
I'm confused about "ndis" because are protocol drivers that I had never used. Are those fine there? Any suggestions? or should be moved to something like "/pub/os2/system/drivers/ndis" ?

Comments and help is always welcome.

Regards

Hi

I don't know much about Dumps. I had installed Lar's version on a ArcaOS VM to try it out, but I don't know how to use it.
Can you give some noob advice on when and how to use it?

Hi

I installed Dooble on a different VM with ArcaOS 5.0.6. Installed with yum with all the dependencies.

When I run dooble I get this error on POPUPLOG.

Any ideas what can I be missing?

The latest libicu, 68.1-1 here, I see I still have the i686 one.

Thanks, my mistake. There where some libraries that were not updated on that VM. I run "Yum update" and now it is working.
