https://www.dropbox.com/s/2p0uiiuqas2zimm/wireshark-2.2.13-os2-20180225.zip?dl=0 contains a readme.os2 which points to a dependency on the Heimdal support DLL's from https://trac.netlabs.org/kerberos

roken.dll is part of Heimdal

Hi Paul, wouldn't hurt to try the 5.5.0 as there may well be compiler bugs, not that I've noticed any but they're probably subtle if existing.
The alignment bugs would really be nice to have fixed. Mozilla is using more and more SSE2 stuff and after 52 dropped support for CPU's without SSE2 (minimum requirement Pentium M). Dmik just disabled SSE and SSE2 to build his P4 Firefox build.
There's also a bug with GCC finding the correct stdc++.lib. I have 510 installed in @UNIXROOT/usr/local510 with a script to load it ahead of 4.9.2 and it'll try to use the stdc++.lib in /usr/lib first. Currently I have to move the one in /usr/lib out of the way to compile C++, C code works fine.
Thanks.
Edit, now testing 5.3.0, will report if anything is different.

Hey Dave,

I'm currently using Paul's build of 5.10. Not sure what, but something seems to have broken in my environment with 4.92, the browser built with it seemed fine until going to YouTube, where VP9 videos would just display static with a message that something went wrong.
Newer compilers fail due to changes in how they parse the C++ code, which is a shame as Paul says he fixed the alignment issues at some point.

If it's of value, perhaps I should update the 5.x build to 5.5.0 - might fix some compiler bugs? I do already have a 5.3.0 build - http://smedley.id.au/tmp/gcc-5.3.0-os2-20160107.zip

I could also try and backport the alignment fixes?

Cheers,

Paul

Hey Andi,

Quote
Anyways, this is hard to explain, so I'm going to log a ticket at the Samba Netlabs.org project page.
For Pauls built? Guess Pauls mantis page would be more appropriate.

Yeah, I know what you mean, I struggled with this a bit but went Netlabs route because I think their Samba releases are viewed as the core OS/2 releases and I understand that there is a bit of cross work behind the scenes.

I was very up-front about this in my ticket and actually stated that if looking at the issue I'm seeing in Paul's test 4.7.7 release is of no benefit to the bigger OS/2 Samba project they can certainly go ahead and close the ticket. I leave it up to that team to determine the best route. Meanwhile, if Paul checks-in on this thread I'm sure he'll provide his feedback if he sees a better way.

Netlabs Samba page is fine - there are other reports there for the 3.x client. I'll try investigate more on the weekend.

Cheers,

Paul

Hi Dariusz,

Sorry - I'm confused - how exactly did you resolve your issues? Backlevelling ndpsmb.dll and matching smbclnxx.dll? I'd rather fix the issue in current builds if it still exists.

If you want to test latest builds:
Netdrive plugin: http://smedley.id.au/tmp/ndpsmb-3.3-samba47-20170924.zip
Samba code: http://smedley.id.au/tmp/smbcln47-4.7.7-20180428.zip

Cheers,

Paul

Programming / Re: Which GCC to run with?
« on: May 06, 2018, 12:54:21 am »
GCC 7.3.0: http://smedley.id.au/tmp/gcc-7.3.0-os2-20180126.zip
GCC 8.1.0: http://smedley.id.au/tmp/gcc-8.1.0-os2-20180505.zip

GCC 7.3.0 has already been tested by several people, 8.1.0 I only built yesterday - I've used it to self build GCC, as well as build apache2 and the necessary Samba 4.8.1 libs for Netdrive.

ok mantis is fixed, I had to edit the config file to point to https://mantis.smedley.id.au instead of http://mantis.smedley.id.au

Thanks, so https://os2ports.smedley.id.au/ is the correct url now?

Yes, I took the opportunity to install SSL certs from letsencrypt.org, but http://os2ports.smedley.id.au will auto-redirect to https://os2ports.smedley.id.au anyway.

There are some known issues with https://mantis.smedley.id.au not loading correctly (Stylesheet issue?) I'll try work on that over the weekend.

Cheers,

Paul

OK, finally, things should be back online. The Telco only took 11 days longer to connect than I was initially advised. Connection speed is currently 36/1 - will hopefully be 100/2.4 early next week; and 100/40 in a few months.

Update 2nd March. We're still in temporary accommodation, but the site is running for now ;) We move into the new house on Monday - I've now been advised that I can get cable broadband, which should be installed on Monday afternoon. Things should be back to normal by Tuesday all going well :)

Hi Guys,

My website is currently down as we've moved out of our old house. I may be able to get things running from our rental house, depends if I can get access to the router or not :)

At this stage, downtime may extend as far as March 5th, I'll keep the forum updated on progress.

Latest is we won't be in the house until the 9th of March - *hopefully* ADSL will be provisioned before we move in...

Cheers,

Paul

Hi All,

Just a heads up that my site will likely go down for approximately 2 weeks from February 16th, as I'm moving house, and our new house isn't heady yet, so we'll be off to a holiday house.  Whilst I'll have an internet connection, it's unlikely I'll be able to open port 80 to have the webserver running.

I'll try and get things back online ASAP. Any downloads hosted on dropbox will still be available in this time.

Cheers,

Paul

FWIW - GCC 7.3.0 has some fixes to combat the spectre bug. I built the OS/2  binaries - they're currently at http://smedley.id.au/tmp/gcc-7.3.0-os2-20180126.zip but will likely move to dropbox/be added to my site once they're tested more.

Applications / Re: Samba and ArcaOS?
« on: January 19, 2018, 09:37:54 am »
Hi Klipp,

Samba has worked great here ever since the later ArcaOS betas. Now I can't get it to work on ArcaOS any more. I've tried this on both AMD & Intel based machines and get the same problems. The machines are listed in "Network Neighborhood" but shared subdirectories are not listed so sharing can't take place. Samba still works fine on eCS box in the LAN. This seems to have started possibly after one of the many YUM updates.
I keep thinking I've screwed up inadverantly, but making the same mistake on two different machines that used to work fine is a stretch.
Thanks in advance for any comments (good or bad!)

I believe network neighbourhood is populated by Arcamapper spawning smbclient.exe - it doesn't use the Samba 4.x plugin.

I would try a couple of things.
1) use pmdll to check ndpsmb.dll & smbcln44.dll for any DLL loading issues
2) Try enabling logging for the Samba plugin, by creating a file ndpsmb.dbg in the root directory of your ArcaOS install, then restarting the control daemon from Arcamapper; then trying to map a drive. If the plugin is loading (if it's a DLL issue from 1) it may not be); then you should get some output in x:\var\log\ndpsmb.log

Cheers,

Paul
