2valerius, I appologize for taking up so much of your time over the years, I will bother you no more!
Happy Birthday


rc is in H:\OS2\rc.exe  (88041)
iasl  vboxtools\os2x86\bin\iasl.exe   (533548)
wrc h:ºwatcom\binp\wrc.exe   (250515)

It turns out I didn't have bison installed, I installed it and re-compiled and now iI get:

Kbuild: Linking VBoxPython2_7
weakld error: Unresolved symbol (UNDEF)  '_yydebug'.
The symbol is rferenced by-.

do I need sometthing else installed?
Thanks for the help.  klipp

Hi Dave, It I'm TOTALLY lost when it comes to anything pertaining to RC! When compiling Valery's virtualbox source code the EMXOMFLD TYPE uses WLlink . It looks like WRC is used as OPEN WATCOM is needed for the compile. I'm not smart enough to add anything that might be termed as intelligent! Sorry, But thanks for any additional suggestions.


@valery, It looks like the RC error is caused by encountering a negitive value while doing the final (ibelieve it's the final)  compile of virtualbox.exe I'm really dumb on this error, I've been trying to solve it since r-155 ! Its obviously something messed up in my area.
I do my compiling on AMD boxes, I guess I'll try to do it on my Intel based server next, but I bet I get the same results.
 As far as ArcaOS compiling , it can be done and gets the same results but not worth the hassel withACPI.

Good to see you back working on Virtualbox, Thanks for all the excellent work and effort.


Hi valery, trying to compile r-199 on ArcaOS 5.0.3 craps out on Vboxacpi. (Thats probably normal!) I'm guessing you are compiling with eCS. r-199  compiling with eCS-B2 gives the same RC error "RC: error - only interger type allowed ()." that earlier revisions gave. it then deletes the compiled virtualbox.exe. I still haven't been able to figure out a fix for this, any suggestions?

Thanks klipp

Hey GUYS--- THANKS Big TIME!  Al is well now.


I've gotten this error on two different machines with ArcaOS 5.0.3 while changing the I.P: for use on my Lan. The I.P changes correctly and all is well, but on rebooting I always get the same error. I've been unable to figure out how to get rid of this error (it actually causes no problems, except for the halt it causes during booting) which is a PITA!
Any ideas would really be appreciated.  Thanks

Hi Dave, I'm finally back, they put three more "stents" in my heart! Aagghhh!  Yesterday I got back to trying to make Firefox 45.9 once again work, no luck. I gave up went to bed. This morning I got up and went back to work and all 4 machines were waiting for me with Air-Boot waiting for my command (Lost electricity during the night!) I booted up and now Firefox 45.9 works fine?¿?¿ Can't explaine it, Guess best blame it on Mexican electricity here. The voltage here does periodically vary from 105 volts to 130 volts.
Thanks for your assistance once again.
Now I'm back to trying to make DropBox work once again, it worked a couple of years ago but now its back to the "no token found" error.

Hey Dave, It'll probably be a couple of days before I can get back to you. Gotta go to the hospital (heart Problems) for some tests!
Thanks for the help.

Safe mode gives the same error and I've added or installed no plugins. I'm really dumb on browseres,

David G Thanks for the help  I've got RPM installed and rpm'ed firefox-highmem-45.9.0-1.oc00.i686.rpm  and it looks like it installed but can't see where to go to see if it runs!  Maybe I should delete usr/bin/firefox.exe? and run it again?

I'm still stuck without the ability to run Firefox 45.9, I cant get it working with the latest updates to ANPM installed, and I can't downgrade libc and libcx. Is there any way of getting a copy of the .RPM version? I see now that supposedly it is only available to beta testers.

Thanks klipp

Hey Pete,Good to hear from you, Its been quite a while since you last bailed me out! Turns out I didn't have Netlabs-exp installed, so I installed it,- but no cigar. It upgraded libcx to 0.4.1, Should I maybe try 0.3.1?
Dave, Looking at popuplog.os2 it shows Firefox at the bottom of the list, but I don't see anything that gives an indication of version/build. What should I be looking for?
This is a pretty old version of 45.9, and I have no idea if I can re-install a newer version over it or not.
Thanks for the help guys!
Oh, One last thought, ANPM can't upgrade heimdal-libs package, its got bad problems, could that affect Firefox 45.9 maybe?

I just finally got around to updatng ANPM's listed necessary updates and re-booted and now Firefox 45.9 throws the error "Couldn't load XUL.DLL (OS2 error 87). Any ideas as to what is needed to make Firefox work once again?
Thanks for any responses

2valerieus, I'm using iasl.exe from OSFree and the results are the same. I'm wondering, you are using gcc-wrc- I'm using gcc-wrc-4.9.2-1-3.oc00.i686  Aparently there is a difference. Yum offers a gcc-wrc-4.9.2-1.oc00-i386 but not a pentieum version. The i386 version requires replacing pretty much all of gcc. Or are i386 and Pentienm the same thing possibly?

2valerieus, New compile using r-177 (and the correct iasl.exe (533548 size). It progresses and completes the virtualbox.exe build, links & installs it, then decides there is something else wrong and deletes virtualbox.exe with the following error!

I've seen this before but don't remember the fix.
