  If you want to use Base, you have to have Java. Otherwise you can live without it. It would be great if they got rid of the requirement.

  I tried deleting my OO profile (C:\Home\Default\OpenOffice) and started Writer. After going thru the initialization routine (add name) now I consistently get a crash and *.trp file when I go to Tools->Options->Java. The *.trp files all look the same. Can also now start Base without a crash, but after closing it there is a Java process still running that needs to be closed. After closing the Java process, Quickstart (if it was running) crashes with a *.trp file. Something isn't quite right....

  You could also just type: YUM INSTALL NETLABS-EXP

 No luck with Java and OpenOffice here either. I get the same hang when I try to create a database using Base. No *.trp files or POPUPLOGS either. It worked here in the first beta.....

 Anybody got Java to work with it? Here if I go to Tools-> Options -> OpenOffice-> Java my computer hangs and I have to reboot. The README implies it might work, but then says everything that requires Java will not work, so it is confusing. I was able to get Java to work with the first beta....

  I also have a motherboard (MSI H55M-E33) with Intel i3, H55 chipset and 4GB RAM that otherwise works well with eCS, but I cannot get SNAP to work. I have tried X850 and X600 PCIe cards and the built in Intel video, all of which work fine with Panorama.


 I installed the SMP debug kernel (supplied with eCS 2.2) to try to get a comport log for you, but I could not boot with Panorama! It would hang at the exact same spot SNAP does, right when PMSHELL is loaded. Booted to command line fine. I have this log if you want to see it. It ends with hlt in 'vman'. Not sure if it is worth trying SNAP now...

 Did you install poppler? If you did, try YUM INSTALL poppler-qt.

Try YUM INSTALL libstdc++6 poppler     (note the '6')

 Thanks, Alex!.... it works here too.

 Items not already being worked on:

-Multiple sound streams for UniAud (my pet peeve)
-Updated OpenGL
-Updated VBox
-Updated SNAP
-Intel WiFi drivers

  I also agree with Andi B's comments on AOO and Seamonkey, but they are in development...

Hi Pete,

  Yes, I can print normally from every AOO4 app with the OMNI printer. With CUPS I can only get black and white text, no images or drawings/graphs (yet... still playing around with options).

  I'm certainly no expert on these things, but I was under the impression that when printing, the data from the app to the printer is the same regardless of the driver used and it is the driver that does the translation to the printer language. That is what led me to be more suspicious of the PSPRINT driver. Maybe someone more knowledgeable than I could chime in on this.

  Your idea of print-to-file the same document from both versions and doing a compare sounds good. I'd be very interested in the results...

  I noticed the same issue with CUPS (after you mentioned it). I also cannot print any images with AOO4 and CUPS (other apps work). However, I can print everything with AOO4 and the OMNI printer driver. So it seems it may not be strictly AOO at fault, but some interaction with the PSPrint driver and AOO4. In any case, you can report bugs here: . It's a good idea to put 'OS/2' somewhere in the title of the bug.

Thanks Boris! You have made it crystal clear...

There are (DISCLAIMER: this is how I understand and what I know, I may be highly inaccurate, or even completely wrong! Think by your own!)

Actually very close to all of existing application DLLs may be loaded high. This option should be considered stable and used extensively.

  Yes... I am beginning to understand that. It brings up a new question: when should 'shared memory' be used and when 'high memory'? What are the advantages and disadvantages? Is 'shared memory' for shared code? If so, it would seem like QT, Java and Odin would be better off staying in shared memory. If they are loaded high, are they not shared among different apps? I'm just trying to get my head around how this dual memory concept is supposed to be used....

  Yes... I saw that and that is why I tried the -c switch. But why does -b work on OpenOffice but not SeaMonkey? SeaMonkey DLL's have both code and data segments according to highmem -v...

  I have also now loaded all the XCenter plugin DLL's high... even more free shared memory!
