Hi roberto

No, Ii definitely do not have that file anywhere.
Possibly an application created that file on your system so *before* deleting make a backup somewhere.


Regards

Pete

It's probably part of xslt-devel as it is used by configure scripts and such and I do have it. If you're not building anything that uses xslt, you can delete it or remove the xslt-devel package

Yum downgrade icu will work, easier by right clicking in ANPM and choose "get specific release" which gives more choices. The only potential problem is dependencies.
There's also the zips available at netlabs.
Could move the needed dowhgraded DLL to the OO directory and use run! or a script to load the DLL's first
Note that running Dooble and OO at the same time is going to be close to using all your memory

Seems that Dooble can import a list of blocked domains, see the video at this issue, https://github.com/textbrowser/dooble/issues/68

Edit: successfully attached a file with Dooble

Hi Wayne.
#1, Dooble just doesn't have as good auto-complete as the Mozilla apps. In Firefox etc, enter os2world and it will try os2world.com, www.os2world.com with http and https. Not sure if a lack in Dooble or the QT5 webengine
#2, Currently the QT5 Webengine is broken when it comes to drive letters, likely needs the Windows code ported. Without a drive letter you can select a file on the drive that Dooble is installed on.
Further more, in my testing, uploading seems to be broken. Probably a QT5 Webengine problem.
#3, You have to enable search engines by going to Tools-->Search Engines... check the search engines you want to use and click the Add Checked button so they show up in the lower pane of the Dooble:Search Engines window.
Unluckily searching from the URL bar is not implemented. What you can do is highlight some text, right click, and at the bottom of the context menu, choose Search Selected Text and then your search engine.
Otherwise create a favourite with your search engine and use that.
Dooble itself is much simpler then Firefox etc, and this is a preview version and actually works amazing well with little porting. Unluckily due to war, and funding, work on fixing these issues might not happen very quick and it is unlikely to ever have the features that Firefox has.

I run your script but why have you included :
├ Cannot find such files: swresa1.dll
├ Cannot find such files: swscal3.dll

├ Cannot find such files: libvpx4.dll
├ Cannot find such files: libvpx2.dll

These are old modules.
My system has
> libvpx6.dll
> swresa3.dll
> swscal5.dll

Always scrashes and not trap file ( no *.trp nor *dooble* )
Regards

I wasn't expecting to distribute the script and was just going through the DLL's that might need marking and also thinking about any that Mozilla uses. I should fix.

I could clean cache and try again after removing source providing previous message.
It open and immediatly near end of load page crash ....

sh -c dooble.exe
no error message but Dooble crashes

Where is the trap file ?
None found ! Thanks

trp files are now on your boot drive in \var\log\apps.
As for your problems, besides logging the output, I guess other possibilities are a package that needs updating or possibly changed from i686 to Pentium 4, or running out of memory. Have you marked as much as possible to load high? I posted a script earlier in this thread. Is VIRTUALADDRESSLIMIT high enough? could be another problem.
Guess there could be a font or codepage problem too though doubtful.

Dooble.odt downloads just fine in Firefox.

Downloads fine in Dooble as well by right clicking and choosing "Save Link". The address bar shows it downloaded to f:/Home/dave/Desktop with f:/Home/dave being where %HOME% points.
Still used to Mozilla giving choices and being much more customizable.

Edit, when you click the ODT file, Github does have a link for Download which works as well.

Fossil would fall under the BBS category.
 Network Driver Interface Specification (NDIS) is just another name for our (and DOS and Windows) network drivers, or more exact part of them IIRC. OK, Wiki has an overview, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Network_Driver_Interface_Specification

One idea is too compare to the SimpleBrowser.
The SimpleBrowser did remember my login here, unlike Dooble. So it is Dooble with the cookie problem.
Opening a file acts the same, so a QT5Webengine problem.
Same with the delete key not working and caps lock going to the start of the line.

Well, things need to be setup. Don't know about this new driver but general instructions are at https://www.arcanoae.com/wiki/how-to-get-a-trap-dump/

Assuming everything is setup correctly, you can force a dump by pressing CTRl-ALT-F10 (or was that F12) twice.

I got my regular Gmail account (using POP) to work fine in our Thunderbird just by using their one time password. After Telus moved me to Gmail, never could get it working on OS/2, since I've mostly moved away from it not much missed and access it now and again in Linux with TB.
Talking about Telus, the home phone was in the wives name. We cancelled it last year. Still get billed, seems we owe them negative $3 and even the old dial up internet seems to still be there, useless without a phone line but likely why my Telus email is still working.

Authentication seems to be there so you can password protect your profile or at least part of it. If you enable it, you always need it to access things like history and favourites

That doesn't seem to be entirely true. Favorites, at least, work better without authentication. If I do add authentication, all of it disappears, and I need to start over (always using authentication, or it doesn't show anything). I haven't tried a second authentication.

Yes that was what I meant but put poorly, as well as I only tested briefly.

Try opening this file

I tried to copy that whole line, so I could quote it. It allowed me to copy a link (only one, not both), but not the whole line. Both links fail. That may have something to do with having \HOME on a different drive than \usr. I have wondered if kLIBC Path Remapper might do something useful, but I haven't tried that, yet.

Try right clicking and doing copy link location, there was a typo that after I fixed it, the text didn't change though the link did.
Anyways the important thing is which drive dooble resides on, usually %UNIXROOT%, never did try with where my HOME is.

Fonts are fine here, I have a lot installed.

Would you tell us which ones you are using with Dooble?

See screenshot

The keys seem to be a term problem or similar.

I don't think it is that simple. Delete works on my Lenovo ThinkPad L530. It doesn't work on any other machine, that I have tried. There is something different about the L530. DEL in Air Boot is supposed to power off the machine. It doesn't do that.

Don't know, I see old *nix programs like Midnight Commander where you can train its keys. There seems some variability in key support.

Oh yeah, add that the spell checker doesn't seem to work.

Same here, even after choosing a language in settings.
It is a preview and considering there's been no porting yet, works surprisingly well.
Likely a lot of this stuff is in QT5's web engine and some in Dooble. Haven't been able to build QT5 yet, should look at dooble again.

Hi Doug,
Private windows only work in the multi-processor state. The single-processor setting is a hack for debugging and not really supported.
Authentication seems to be there so you can password protect your profile or at least part of it. If you enable it, you always need it to access things like history and favourites. This is partially broken at least on my and Paul's builds (haven't tested the official one) as we're lacking an API to lock memory.
Try opening this file, ile:///@unixroot/usr/share/doc/dooble-2022.04.04/README-os2.txt or file:///usr/share/doc/dooble-2022.04.04/README-os2.txt.
Seems drive letters are currently broken. Not sure why @unixroot works as I tried some other environment variables like set D=d: and then @d. They failed.
Fonts are fine here, I have a lot installed.
The keys seem to be a term problem or similar. Should be easily fixable along with the drive letter thing, which does work under Windows I hear.
Edit: fix a typo

In my attempts to build Qt5, I see it uses -mno-avx or such. Lots of subprojects, especially in qtwebengine and possibly one of those does enable AVX, especially as some use different build systems such as chromium using Ninja.
Need to see what code is using AVX and probably an issue raised at Bitwise's Github.
