Unfortunately not. RPM prevents that. It insists on also erasing all dependent programs. It knows better than me, of course.

Have you looked at "rpm -e --nodeps" ?

Applications / Re: Sybase DB-Library
« on: December 05, 2020, 05:40:03 pm »
Andreas, thank you for the info.   

The Intersolv driver manager is looking for the Sybase database library that had been provided with Sybase OS/2 clients prior to System 10, specifically SYBDB.DLL, the 32-bit version of the library.   

In the past, I believe the OS/2 client could be freely downloaded from Sybase, but I am unable to find it available for download anywhere on the Net.

Applications / Sybase DB-Library
« on: December 04, 2020, 11:22:54 pm »
Does anyone know where I can obtain Sybase's (32-bit) DB-Library >= v.4.6?   

An older (v4) Q+E SQL Server ODBC driver requires this along with Net-Library >= v.2, which I'm planning to use from the Sybase System 10 client.

The critical part Is generally I can't get anything from outside the VM to inside.  So at this point I am stuck and can't go on.

Hi Jim,

Linux can be pure hell to use if the distribution's packages are poorly maintained causing the system to break after updates.  Some distributions are well maintained and can be great to work with.

I assume your VM host is Linux.  As a short term fix, until you get your OS/2 networking working with your host, you can transfer files into your VM OS/2 guest by placing your files in an ISO image and mounting the ISO image on your VM OS/2 guest.   With Linux, you can easily create an ISO image containing your files using the following command:

$ mkisofs -o [filename.iso] [directory_path]

-o [filename.iso] defines the file name of the ISO image you want to create

[directory_path] is the directory containing the files you want to store in the ISO image

Thank you Dave.

I wasn't able to create a new account on Trac or use their guest account.   I'll try again next week.

Hopefully, AN reads this board and spots this thread. While 386 HPFS isn't currently a supported configuration for them, it will be in 5.1 if they provide upgrades from 4.52.

Setup & Installation / CUPS and LIBC defect?
« on: September 06, 2020, 03:35:39 am »
I have been struggling to upgrade CUPS v.2.1.3 to v.2.2.12 but kept getting rpm chmod errors.  I wanted to stick with an RPM install and avoid manually installing it.

I eventually came across a 10 year old post describing an issue with libc and how EAs are handled when using 386 HPFS.  Since I'm using 386 HPFS, I rebooted with the HPFS.IFS driver and then CUPS installed without any errors.

Is this a known issue with LIBC and 386 HPFS EAs that's going to remain unresolved?

Hi Pete,

That looks like a winner, thank you!   Removing numlock2.

What is NUMON.EXE? There is no such thing in ArcaOS. Report the problem, but they can't support everything that a user adds to the mix. Was that line in your original CONFIG.SYS?

This was in my config.sys when I upgraded from 5.0.4 to 5.0.5, but it only became an issue upgrading from 5.0.5 to 5.0.6. Numlock2 is licensed by Mensys and is not distributed by Arca Noae; it turns on numlock.

I just updated and now ANPM is broken.   When starting, ANPM prompts for my AN repository subscription IDs and PWs, and then throws a Python Error "The Python interpreter terminated with error code 123.   I also tried to rebuild the RPM database and received the popup error VX-REXX "DosConnectNPipe".

This issue was due to the installation process adding the following to my config.sys:

    SET COMSPEC=C:\OS2\CMD.EXE /K C:\OS2\NUMON.EXE

This was derived from my existing entry:

    SET OS2_SHELL=C:\OS2\CMD.EXE /K C:\OS2\NUMON.EXE

Changing to the following resolved my error:

    SET COMSPEC=C:\OS2\CMD.EXE

Hi Lars,

Thank you very much for your help.

I think it would be better to spend your valuable time supporting more ubiquitous devices.  My bad luck for purchasing the one C-Media device that didn't work (I might use the CM6533 w. a Linux machine).  The other C-Media CM119 device is working beautifully with OS/2 and VMware passthrough.

<<One the other hand, that would not explain why you can successfully play other WAV files without any probs>>

Related to your observations, I think that lovely FEATURE is responsible for having my left channel often times disabled after booting into OS/2, providing sound only from my right channel.  I didn't experience this using Linux.  I did connect a microphone, but didn't hear it when playing a wav file.

My suggestion is for Martin to markup the device as not supported (or limited support).   If this is something you would like to support, I can test anything you send my way.

Hi Lars,

First, I want to thank you for making these drivers available.  It's great to have sound!

I restored the original wav files and connected the C-Media CM119 device I received today and all the wav files played without issue.  The CM6533 device was definitely the problem, likely due to being a synchronous device, as Wim pointed out. 

Using the CM6533, all the dsk_*.wav files would loudly hiss, with the intended sound being heard faintly in the background.

I have attached my lsusb output for the CM6533 device.

If worst comes to worst, there's always the option of upconverting the wav files to 44.1kHz.

For the moment, I like your suggestion and have transcoded all the files.  I first tried using Saracon, which couldn't read the files, but dBpoweramp had no problem.

I'll test my setup with the other C-Media adapter I have coming tomorrow to determine if the CM6533 is the problem.
