Networking / VNC/FTP Asus RT-AC1750U
« on: February 15, 2020, 05:24:08 pm »
Need to set up a new Asus RT-AC1750U for accepting incoming VNC and FTP connections. This router has lots of options and I have no experience with this stuff. The router is at a remote site and I can connect and configure it remotely. Basically I need to connect to a pc running VNC server at the remote site, and probably a ftp-server. (The pc I want to connect to is running eCS.)
Appreciate if someone can help with this.

Setup & Installation / Airboot & GPT
« on: January 24, 2020, 08:53:29 pm »
On a system I have two hdd's, one MBR with ArcaOS and one GPT with Win10. Airboot skips GPT disks so it can't boot Win10.
AFAIK the GPT disk has to be converted to MBR for Airboot to see it. Has anyone tried EaseUS Partition Master which claim to keep all data/partitioning on the GPT disk intact, or does anyone have another solution?

Setup & Installation / Trap 0008 installing ArcaOS 504
« on: January 03, 2020, 10:02:32 pm »
Hi,

Before opening a ticket I'd like to know if anyone knows what could cause trap 0008. First phase installs ok on this
ThinkStation 520, after the reboot some drivers are being loaded and all of sudden it stops and produces the attached trap screen.

Programming / DBE/PmPDF report titles
« on: September 20, 2019, 04:31:35 pm »
When printing a report in DBExpert to PMPDF, and PMPDF is set to create pdf's automatically, it creates a file like this;
20190920160910-InvoiceReport.PDF where InvoiceReport is the title of the report in DBE.

If the invoice number in this case is 12345, is there a method to automatically create a pdf named only 12345.pdf?
(Actually substitute the report title "InvoiceReport" with the invoice number from it's field in the report.)

Hardware / Airboot / M.2 SATA and/or PCI NVMe
« on: August 07, 2019, 03:18:50 pm »
Planning to buy a new ThinkCentre or ThinkStation which comes with Win pre-installed on a M.2 SATA or NVMe.
Will add an extra SATA SSD and connect it to one of the motherboard's SATA connectors and install Airboot and ArcaOS
on this one.
Don't know what kind of BIOS these systems use, but hopefully it can be set to "legacy".

If so, will Airboot be able to boot Win from the M.2 or NVMe?

Setup & Installation / JFS chkdsk problem
« on: July 19, 2019, 09:49:54 pm »
Have a problem with a jfs formatted partition. After a reboot (ArcoOS), chkdsk seems to be stuck in phase 3 when checking the "troubled" partition which has driveletter P. Disabled autocheck in config.sys and the system boots to the WPS, drive P still exists but the systems cannot list any files/directories. Is there any "safe" tool to fix this?

Utilities / Insert text on pdf's
« on: June 03, 2019, 04:04:31 pm »
I need to insert text, actually the filename of the pdf, to lots of pdf's.
Does anyone know about a "OS/2-utilty" that can do this, preferably in batch mode?
(Attached a sample, 12345.pdf)

Hi,

I'd like to automate sending e-mails with a file attached from an application I've created with VX-Rexx.  Since I have no experience using Rexx Sockets I'd appreciate help/ sample of how to:
Initialize sockets
Log-in to smtp server
Attach file
Send message

Programming / Rexx function changestr
« on: April 04, 2019, 06:26:12 pm »
AFAIK the function "changestr" is not implemented in classic REXX, but seems to be supported by Object REXX.
Does anyone know about a library with this function for classic REXX, or a "workaround" to easily achieve what "changestr" does?

---
CHANGESTR(needle, haystack, newneedle)

This function was added by the ANSI-1996 standard. It replaces all occurrences of string needle in string haystack with string newneedle. Returns the haystack if needle is not found.

Examples --

changestr(‘x’,’abcx’,’d’) == abcd
changestr(‘x’,’abcc’,’d’) == abcc        /* needle was not found in haystack */

Internet / Couldn't resolve host
« on: May 05, 2018, 03:44:36 pm »
Hi,

I have a rexx program that automates sending emails with attachments and it has worked perfectly for years.
All of a sudden it is not sending anymore and I found this error message in the log:
cURL error: 6 - Couldn't resolve host 'mail.broadpark.no'

This pc is set up using DNS and and Firefox works OK.

The one who normally uses this pc cannot remember changing anything.
Nothing has changed at the ISP and all login/host details are correct in the setup of the rexx program.

Ideas anyone?

Programming / SQL/DBExpert
« on: October 24, 2017, 10:09:17 pm »
Hi,

Anyone who knows how to use "INSERT INTO" in a DBExpert macro?

Trying to achieve this:

SUM = 10000
dbeRunSQL(INSERT INTO TABLENAME(TABLEFIELD)) SUM

The SUM I actually get from a form and I need the macro to run from this form.

(I've tried moving/adding/deleting " ( ",  " ) ", TOTAL and " ' " in all the positions I can think of but no success.)

Running INSERT in the query designer works, but there it gets the value to insert from a table like;
INSERT INTO TABLEA(FIELDA) SELECT TABLEB.FIELDB FROM TABLEB

Ideas welcome,
Per

Setup & Installation / Ghostscript error
« on: May 25, 2017, 01:08:03 am »
Hi,

I have for years used PMPDF and GhostScript 9.04 (or earlier versions) and setting it up on various eCS system without any problems.
Now I just tried to make it work under ArcaOS, installing the same way as before, but get this error when trying to create a pdf:

Error in GhostScript processing, code:255 -

(I've not installed using yum/rpm and I have not set up any ecups on this system.)

Anyone else experienced this?

Programming / Vx-rexx container
« on: December 11, 2016, 09:14:29 pm »
I have a container object with several columns and I need to sum the values of one column for displaying the sum in
a field outside the container, each time a record is entered.

ok = VRMethod( "QRY_AVR", "MoveFirst" )
do while( ok = 1 )
    call VRMethod "QRY_AVR", "RowData", "data."
    str = ""
    do i = 1 to data.0
        str = str data.i
    end
    say str
    ok = VRMethod( "QRY_AVR", "MoveNext" )
end

With 2 records the output of say is (from data.1 incl. data.7):

 555 1230 1111 TEST1 1.0  10500 35880
 555 1230 8951 TEST2 1.0  -3456 -8951

The last column, data.7, contains the numbers I need the sum of.
Now the problem is how to make the sum of data.7 and make it available for displaying in a field.

Ideas are welcome and appreciated.

« on: November 14, 2016, 05:48:49 pm »
The settings for "E-mail program" in OpenOffice 4.1.1 points to seamonkey.exe (which is correct) but when sending a mail it opens Thunderbird,
anyone else seen this and know the solution?
