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

initdb in the 9.4 and 9.6 build doesn't behave like they do in 9.3:

performing post-bootstrap initialization ... postgres: could not look up effective user ID 0: No such file or directory
child process exited with exit code 1
initdb: removing data directory "D:/NLSTeam"

Needless to say, I don't see that here, but I'll try investigate soon!

Hopefully https://www.dropbox.com/s/8hkit4gq4b8kedt/postgresql-9.6.6-os2-20180103.zip?dl=0 should help

Cheers,

Paul

VIRTUALADDRESSLIMIT=2048 seems to be the best setting here to not get the above error during initdb.

Too small (1536) and it randomly fails, too big (2560) and it fails 100% with a semget() error.

While I was at it, I built 9.6.6:
http://smedley.id.au/tmp/postgresql-9.6.6-os2-20180101.zip

Note that sometimes when running the database initialisation, I got an error like:
running bootstrap script ... FATAL:  could not get shared memory segment: Invalid argument

running initdb a 2nd time seemed to address this.

Cheers,

Paul

Hi All,

Inspired by Greg Pringle and Jan-Erik Larka, I updated Postgresql to 9.3.x:
http://smedley.id.au/tmp/postgresql-9.3.17-os2-20171231.zip

I also just built 9.4.x:
http://smedley.id.au/tmp/postgresql-9.4.15-os2-20180101.zip

Feedback appreciated!

Cheers,

Paul
