« on: March 08, 2015, 03:25:25 pm »
I found that png16.dll was loaded by freetyp6.dll. I suppose it's useful to put timestamps or other versioning into dll files, but no one else is, so I won't, either. Anyway, a version of freetyp6.dll was in my libpath before the one in \usr\dll and it tried to load png16.dll, which wasn't present. Removing that version of freetyp6.dll allows the one in \usr\dll to load, and qpdfview works.

The tool I use to manage libpath is inadequate. I have which.exe from the EMX days. It doesn't show the DLLs well enough. Is there a newer version of which?

Usage: which <command>...
       which -d <dll>...

It's a simple, but good tool for finding things.

Hey Neil,

Is there some way to get more information about the error "could not load plug-in for type 'PDF'"?

I would use pmdll or something similar to ensure all dependent DLL's are present and can be loaded. I'll wager you have a DLL missing somewhere..

OK, with PMDLL, running against qpdfpdf.dll, I see png16.dll is missing. I'm not sure what package gives that. I did rerun all the yum commands, but it didn't actually find png16.dll

Running PMDLL against qpdfview.exe, I see cups.dll won't load. But cups.dll is on the libpath. Running PMDLL against cups.dll shows no problems.

Any idea what to do?

Well, I'd hope to know which dll files, or yum commands. Because the install.os2 isn't clear on that. get some zip files from the ftp site, but what are the names of the zip files? Once you have the correct zip files, which files from the zip files are needed?

That's the information that is incomplete in install.os2. And for developers of the package; they already had the files, so they didn't experience the need to describe them fully.

I should not have to use PMDLL. Even if I did, what is the base plugin DLL to start with?
what yum commands are not clear? Imho the install.os2 is written with the enduser in mind.

Silvan

In install.os2, I can either use yum or not. I prefer to use yum. Where there are yum commands, they are clear. But then

djvulibre
---------

  not available as a rpm at this time of writing

cups
----

  not available as a rpm at this time of writing

ghostscript
-----------

  not available as a rpm at this time of writing


I'm not completely clear what is going on here. Come to think of it, how does qpdfview find ghostscript?

Well, so far I can't get it to work. I have 4.1.13 working, so all is not lost.

Thanks to Doug for all the ideas, but so far, none are working.

I'm trying to run qpdfview-0_4_14-GA, but when I open a pdf, I get a message box saying

could not load plug-in for type 'PDF'

I think I loaded all the prerequisites. Is there a way to find out why it could not load the plug-in?

Hardware / Re: Any luck with Azarawicz's new NIC driver for RealTek?
« on: February 05, 2015, 03:41:20 pm »
I've been using this driver for years. It's fantastic. Early on, I reported some problem with Virtual PC, but David fixed it. Realtek hardware is pervasive, and to have a reliable driver is extra good.

I do have a network problem that causes NetBIOS to die after a long time (17 days was the shortest run time, 3 months was the longest) with a related MultiMac driver, the e1000e. I have not had the patience to chase down a reliable recipe to reproduce this bug.

I don't know why you had to chase this driver down. It's a standard Arca Noae product.

The 3c905B hardware and driver are the only really reliable NetBIOS hardware that I know.

Networking / Re: Dropbox plugin for NetDrive

OK, I have this working and have updated the front page of the thread.

I copied 2 GB of files to Dropbox, and NetDrive crashed half a dozen times.

Networking / Dropbox plugin for NetDrive
« on: January 28, 2015, 06:10:12 am »
I asked for help to use the dropbox plugin for NetDrive, but no one on OS/2 World was able to help.

I downloaded the RPM file and the readme from the BitWise Dropbox folder. (The password is bww)

https://www.dropbox.com/sh/9nnktlb5z3iihbb/AAAbSkkvXHHPU7wSVbk2JxUea?dl=0

It turns out that you can install an RPM file directly using yum

yum install ndpdbox-0.4.0.b5-0.oc00.i386.rpm

The yum installer will hang. That's OK, just reboot the computer.

After the computer is rebooted, find the NdpDBox folder and the icon for "Dropbox Authorize".
Run Dropbox Authorize (\USR\SHARE\DOC\NDPDBOX-0.4.0.B5\DROPBOXAUTH.EXE) and log in to your dropbox account.
Go back to the Dropbox Authorize screen and save your secret file.

Go to NetDrive and create a resource for dbox. Enter the full path to the secret file you created, your userid, and registration key.

This should create the share and you should now see your dropbox files.

I hope this helps others use the dbox plugin.

The installer does not mark DLLs to load high. I unzipped highmem.exe to do the deed. In the program directory I used

Code: [Select]
highmem -b *.DLL
to mark both code and data high. When I exit from OpenOffice, the computer sometimes the mouse stops moving and the computer is unresponsive to remote control. Is there a safer way to use high memory? Is there a way to revert after marking high or mark "low"?

I think your estimate is low by 100 x. It's not just Microsoft, but other companies that no longer exist, but hold the rights. Read "Who Says Elephants Can't Dance?" for the whole story of why IBM did what they did.

It would be cheaper to write it again from scratch.

Patching what's left seems like the best strategy. Thanks to all the developers who are busy doing that.

I'm also thinking about SNAP, where Mensys has the source code, but no one has stepped forward to update it. If we can't use the source to recompile one video driver, then why would the source code to the whole operating system help?

Applications / Re: OpenOffice 4.1.1 GA - pre-requisite uninstall?
« on: January 10, 2015, 12:57:00 am »
I installed from the WPI, with YUM getting all the required libraries.

AOO 4.1 is running fine.

In order to get WPS integration, I uninstalled only the OOoWPS and OOsWPSWizard using WarpIN, then let the AOO 4.1 WPI reinstall those parts. My WPS appears to be integrated correctly.

I still have not figured out the Java integration.
