Applications / Gimp install problem
« on: December 07, 2014, 12:19:29 am »
I'm trying to install gimp but it looks like it can't find the libs directory, its looking for fontcfg.dll. Manually giving it the required DLL's and then trying to execute gimp-2.2.exe gives: "a non-recoverable error occured the process ended"
I'm using Alex's WPI's from Hobbs and HOBLink is up and running. also tried it on a different machine with the same results.
Any ideas as to what I'm lacking?

Thanks  klipp

Programming / QT3 Toolkit will not compile --need help!
« on: October 31, 2014, 04:16:39 am »
I need to use qt3 to compile some older source code gui's. I'm using GCC 3.3.2 (eCS 2.2 beta) and trying different QT3 sources SVN 205, 207 & 208 -- all with the same failure. I have to use the newer SVN's as I don't have access to ILINK 3.08, and use WLINK.EXE linker. QT· compiles the library alone, without problems but I need the tools also and when I use the option to compile both tools & lib's it "craps-out" with:

emxomfar -p128 r ..\..\..\lib\qassistantclient.lib tmp\obj\release_mt_static\qassistantclient.obj tmp\obj\release_mt_static\moc_qassistantclient.obj
emxomfar 0.6.4 (Bird Build 2011-10-03 04:55 (csd4)) -- Copyright (c) 1992-1996 by Eberhard Mattes

Usage: emxomfar [-p#] <command> <library_file> [<module>]...

  d    delete module from library
  r    replace modules in library
  t    list table of contents
  x    extract modules from library

Options (append to command):
  c    no warning when creating new library
  v    verbose output

Options (prededing command):
  -p#  set page size
make[2]: *** [..\..\..\lib\qassistantclient.lib] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `C:/208/trunk/tools/assistant/lib'
make[1]: *** [sub-assistant-lib] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `C:/208/trunk/tools'
make: *** [sub-tools] Error 2

Any ideas as to how I can get around this problem will be GREATLY appreciated!

Thanks in advance  klipp

Programming / Need help patching SDL
« on: October 15, 2014, 10:38:09 pm »
I've downloaded and unzipped it into D:\tools\os2.x86\libsdl. This gives me the following directorie in D:\tools\os2.x86\libsdl: SDL, SDLGfx, SDLImage, SDLMixer, SDLNet, SDLTTF & readme.txt. I need to apply the following patch (diff?) to SDL I don't know how to accomplish this. Thanks much to anybody that can give me a fairly detailed description of how todo this.

Programming / compiling glib-2.36.4 & libidl-0.8.14 -- need help
« on: September 17, 2014, 12:47:35 am »
I'm trying to compile glib and libidl using both gcc 332 & (or) gcc335 and I'm getting malformed input file error. This is obviously something I'm doing wrong. I have no problems compiling in gcc using kmk, but these sources (glib & libidl) apparently don't use kmk. Years ago I compiled using "ash" but looks like that is no longer an option. Could someone please straighten me out as to how to do this?

thanks  klipp

Programming / Compiling XPCOM (xpidl) fails -- need help!
« on: June 23, 2014, 05:38:28 am »
When compiling XPCOM it "craps out" when it gets to compiling XPIDL. Its looking for xpidl.o and there is no such file in the source or any other place I've searched. Anybody know where I can find xpidl.o? It looks like XPIDL could be replaced with PYXPIDL but I have no idea how a person would initiate this change in XPCOM. Thanks in advance for any ideas on how to solve this.

thanks,  klipp

Programming / How to specify wlink as linker for gcc?
« on: May 29, 2014, 01:38:29 am »
I'm using Paul's gcc 3.3.5 and 4.8.2, I need to use wlink but can't seem to figure out how to get gcc to use it (wl.exe and its included patch). I need to set EMXOMFLD_LINKER=wl.exeand EMXOMFLD_TYPE=WLINK -- do I do this as a SET command in config.sys or enter it using wl.exe at its prompt?
Thanks for any help.  klipp

Applications / VirtualBox and Skype problem
« on: May 22, 2014, 01:51:30 am »
I've got XP installed in VirtualBox 1.6.1_ose and Skype installed in XP and Skype works except for sound. Turns out this version of VirtualBox when installed in eCS (beta ll) will not allow sound to work as the only option available for sound is "null" which allows recognicion of the Soundblaster driver but won't allow sound to evolve. Does anyone know of a fix for this or is it necessary to use a much newer version of VirtualBox? It probably will need a newer version of VirtualBox and then the question is -- is there any work being done to upgrade VirtualBox? The sources are available.
Thanks for any available info.


Hardware / PCI Parallel Port card install -- need info
« on: February 12, 2014, 03:46:53 am »
I need to install a PCI Parallel card on a newer quad core M.B. that has no parallel port. It looks like I need to do it one of two different ways, or possibly both. Steven Levine posted a way which said to download from the eCS site. Right now it looks like the beta zone is unreachable as well as the bug reporting site. So the other way was also posted by Mr. Levine and said to download Viet's from hobbes (which I have done, but not installed as yet).  Which of these methods would be best to try with eCS 2.2bii or is there some additional way of accomplishing this included in eCS?
Has anyone done this lately?

thanks   klipp

Applications / Samba -- Can't make it work!
« on: February 08, 2014, 04:00:34 am »
I finally got a Xerox printer to work with eCS, now I need to share it with three other eCS/OS2 boxes on a lan. So I've installed Samba Version 3.3.16-eCS 1.1.4-804 on the machine with the printer, running eCS 2.1. It installed fine and both NMBD & SMBD is running but thats as good as it gets! Anything I try to do gives "SYS0065: Network access is denied." Trying to log on as a user -- Root, guest or other user & password entries throws the same error, "Find SMB/CIFS machines" finds no machines as long as all boxes are running eCS. But with one box booted to SuSE 12.2 it see's that machine as well as the eCS boxes. But trying to do anything with the server box gives the "Network access is denied" error.
  Is it possible there are problems with the veraion of Samba I'm using or more likely problem with me?¿?!
  Thanks for any comments.


Web applications / Ungodly slow localhost search
« on: February 06, 2014, 02:56:13 am »
Is there a way of speeding up the localhost searches when using CUPS to modify printer settings. On a system with 4 processors and 2 gb memory I get "waiting for localhost" and wait 3 to 4 minutes as well as the same wait when "transferring data from localhost"?
Thanks for any input!


Hardware / Boot 2.2 beta .iso from a USB memory stick?
« on: December 21, 2013, 05:35:33 pm »
Is there a way to boot the 2.2 beta from a memory stick? I've tried doing it with Dfsee's "create bootable USB stick" option but can't get it to load the eCS beta .iso.
I'm looking for a way to install the beta on a couple of older boxes that don't have a DVD drive, only CD Drive and functional USB.

Thanks for any ideas   klipp

Applications / CUPS --- Need a filter for Samsung CLP-365w
« on: June 13, 2013, 03:46:03 am »
I'm trying to make cups work with my Samsung 365w. I got the PPD file from the Samsung install in Linux also got the "rastertosamsungsplc" file which needs to be made into rastertosamsungsplc.exe for the printer to work in eCS.

Setup & Installation / WSEB & X3650 -- need help!
« on: April 21, 2013, 01:51:46 am »
A customer sent me a IBM X3650 (7979) Server and wants it configured with WSEB! Is this possible? As far as I can tell the Adaptec AIC-9580W storage controller is not supported by WSEB. Does anybody have any ideas how I can make this work for this customer? Any suggestions would really be appreciated, Thanks!
