Applications / Re: Apache OpenOffice 4.1.1 RC3
« on: August 23, 2014, 08:06:51 pm »
 Using the HIGHMEM utility on my OpenOffice \program directory made a HUGE difference. I used 'highmem -b *.dll' from the command line and so far all apps always start, I have not had any traps (using Kernel 14.106) nor have I been able to get the WPS to crash anymore.  So good I went to try it on SeaMonkey, but SeaMonkey wouldn't start afterwards, so I undid the highmem setting and re-tried with 'highmem -c *.dll'. That worked great (not sure why the difference). I need to study this little gem some more....

@ Andreas: make sure the Quickstart from version 3 is not loaded. That one tripped me up at first.

@guzzi: there is a 'highmem' archive file in the directory I got OpenOffice from. I just downloaded it and it appears to be an updated version of ABOVE512 that you mention. I'll give it a try, thanks.

 Unfortunately, this version of OpenOffice is nearly unusable on my system. After a fresh boot, I can open up to 2 of the apps, the 3rd will not start (gives errors about dll's - I have all needed dll's installed). Neither will just about any other program start. Even after closing the OpenOffice apps, Firefox will not start until I reboot. Opening and closing OpenOffice apps after a few iterations the WPS gets flakey and eventually crashes. It seems to me that shared memory may be getting used up by this beast and not being released (I have 4GB memory btw). The only way I have found to be able to use it is by only using one app at a time and rebooting after using it. Anybody got any tips on how this could be managed?

  Still get '[00000280] Obtain thread error!' within about a minute of starting with my C250.

  I tried both the 640x480 and 320x240 versions and I get the same result. Also get the same window size with both (640x480). Looking at the files, they all appear to be the same size in both folders in the WebSee10.zip archive. Is that correct?

Thanks Wim! There is a slight change in behavior (perhaps intentional) with UvcView here. When the image freezes, there is a popup that says:

[00000280] Obtain thread error!

No change with Weblook/Webview.

Ben,

  Have you tried VLC? ( http://hobbes.nmsu.edu/download/pub/os2/apps/mmedia/video/players/vlc-2.1.3.zip )

  I haven't done FLAC to WAV myself, but VLC has the capability (supposedly).

  I tried uvcview.exe in multi CPU mode, and I get a frozen image in about a minute. With MAXCPU=1 it was still running after an hour.

 Just to make sure there was not some problem with the most recent USB drivers, I went back to the original Weblook/Webview (that uses the USBECD.SYS driver) and it ran for 30 minutes with no freeze. Switched back to the most recent Weblook/Webview (that uses USBRESMG.SYS) and the freezes were back in about a minute.

 Then I set ACPI.PSD /MAXCPU=1 and rebooted, and it seems the freezes are gone (after 10 minutes). Doesn't this seem to point at USBRESMG.SYS having an issue with multiple CPU's?

  Wim,

  I'm using a dual processor i3 CPU. Tried the newest version and still get the same behaviour... freeze after about a minute. If there is some kind of logging that can be done, I'd be glad to do it...

I doubled the number of isochronous buffers in weblook.exe  and I replaced WebseeBeta1.zip on my website. I hope that helps.

  It doesn't seem to make any difference, the behaviour is exactly the same...

 Thanks...I tried this new Beta with a Logitech C250. This cam worked well with your last version. With the new beta, it works for about 90 seconds, then the picture freezes. If I then close and re-open Webview, the image is black. I need to restart weblook to get video again - I can even leave webview open and the video un-freezes when I restart weblook.

 Did you do the setup requested in the cups-filters README?

  Just in case someone decides to go right for version 1.7.2...

  The cups-filters package (required for 1.7.2) requires a copy of cups15.dll from the cups 1.5.4 package....

 Are there any print properties that need to be changed in the print dialog of the app itself? I have no trouble printing with qPDFView...

 What type of printer are you trying to print to? How is it attached?

 If you are certain you have the latest updates (which corrects the truncation issue), you could just try deleting, then re-installing your printer in the CUPS web interface. Assuming that works (print test page), then take the ppd in \cups\etc\cups\ppd and import it into the OS/2 postscript printer and install a new printer object (you could use Alex's CUPSWIZ - will do it automatically).
