Thanks David.

I found the reference since I didn't remember it.

Hi all,

My first question would be whether Arca Noae is still on the roadmap.

In particular I would be interested, if the development of "Support hard disks larger than 2 terabytes" is still on the agenda.
My last OS/2 system is a Samba server for my family. With the 2TB limitation, I reach now my limits. Without a clear statement, the transition to FreeBSD would be inevitable - very unfortunate.

Hi all,

it is building exe's finally.  Remainng hurdles were installing findutils (SYS1003 messages during compilation) and installing exceptq and exceptq-lib. Absence of this library was not checked by autoconf-configure.

Will try the exe's next weekend. Thanks for your support and patience.

...installed, so configure runs now. Beeing in the stage of installing gawk, diffutils, etc. to get configure running. Basically confgure runs are quite slow, only one core is used.  Keep you informed about my progress.
Thanks for your help.

Hi Silvan,

do you really want me to block valuable development resources through problems by compiling? Probably the problems are related to my build environment and not to the samba sources. Anyway, I'll open a ticket once I am sure it is not related to my build environmant.  It is still not compiling.

I come to that point:
checking build system type... i386-pc-os2-emx
checking host system type... i386-pc-os2-emx
checking target system type... i386-pc-os2-emx
checking for gcc... gcc
checking whether the C compiler works... no
configure: error: in `C:/work/samba/server/source3':
configure: error: C compiler cannot create executables
See `config.log' for more details
All done, took 5 min 51 sec.

Analyzing config.log provides the following:
weakld: cannot open library file '\@unixroot\usr\lib\libcx0_s.a'.
emxomfld: weak prelinker failed. (rc=8)

New libcx is not part of the netlabs-rel channel.

Thanks Dave, that did the trick! Of course perl was installed, but not the related sub-packages. I've installed all of them (Is this the sense of YUM/RPM to install everything, what's there?)

Build.cmd conf runs now and had a lot of .idl files compiled in librpc. Unfortunately it ended up with:
Compiling librpc/idl/secrets.idl
Compiling librpc/idl/server_id.idl
Compiling librpc/idl/wbint.idl
Now run ./configure (or ./configure.developer) and then make.
./configure: line 154: /usr/bin/bash: No such file or directory
./configure: line 154: exec: /usr/bin/bash: cannot execute: No such file or directory
All done, took 7 min 18 sec.

Guess what, bash is installed and present.
[c:\work\samba\server\source3]ls -l /usr/bin/bash*
-rw-r--r-- 1 0 0 423573  5. Dez 2006  /usr/bin/bash.exe

Obviously it is not easy to follow our developers, any further hints?

Hi folks,

I am trying to keep up with the latest development of samba server and having trouble with configure (with which I am not very familiar). So this is my log, any advice, what’s missing?

Can't locate File/ in @INC (@INC contains: /@unixroot/usr/share/autoconf /@unixroot/usr/local/lib/perl5 /@unixroot/usr/local/share/perl5 /@unixroot/usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl /@unixroot/usr/share/perl5/vendor_perl /@unixroot/usr/lib/perl5 /@unixroot/usr/share/perl5 .) at /@unixroot/usr/share/autoconf/Autom4te/ line 100.

Thanks in advance for any hint

The module definition file provides the attribute WINDOWAPI to ensure that the program will start in a PM session.

Well, still use emacs 20.6 from hobbes plus rx-mode ( Since I use emacs for years, I cannot imagine something else, not even for REXX programming.

I'd like to add:

* status of ArcaNoae's roadmap (issued on os2world Friday, 21 November 2014 02:10)

I guess we are in the longterm phase right now  ;)

Are the short and medium term projects still alive? Are there changes to the roadmap, cancellation of activities, etc?
