I have a Lenovo Thinkpad T540p with two bootable ArcaOS volumes. One has USB 11.17, and runs websee UVCView.exe perfectly. The second has USB 12.05 and  UVCView terminates with an error: [0000FF14] Obtain thread error!

Hi Neil,

PMMail is running here, built on GCC 9.2.

Do you need any (additional?) testers?

I've got 4 email accounts defined in PMMail currently, thousands of email messages...happy to put it through it's paces.

Thanks!

Testers are on the PMMail users mailing list, and have access to PMMail Mantis for bug reporting. See the PMMail website for details. This thread shows we are having some issues registering new users.

New testers are welcome.

Neil

That seems to be the trick. I installed under ArcaOS Beta. You probably can see what happened. ArcaOS beta has unreleased software in it. So I went to a ArcaOS 5.0.4 GA installation and gcc and gcc++ install. But when I go to run, gcc fails because it can't spawn as.

Quote
g++.exe: fatal error: cannot execute 'as': spawnvp: No such file or directory

I tried installing binutils, and that seemed to make it happy.

Maybe this should be it's own thread, but I have hit a snag building PMMail. If I attempt to install gcc from netlabs-rel, it fails because there is a dependency error. The libraries in netlabs-rel that support gcc don't match the gcc in netlabs-rel.

Hardware / Re: List of OS/2 Tested/Reported Motherboards
« on: May 14, 2020, 03:28:55 pm »
I'd be curious to see in the hardware listings an entry to say "This is available to buy new." vs. "This is of historical interest."

Once a xHCI driver is available, I'd think a few new motherboards would be available.

I am using the free version of SmartSVN 7.07 to maintain the source code for PMMail. I also use Visual SlickEdit as my coding editor.

I don't remember what version of SVN the VOICE server is running.

It turns out to be a prerequisites problem after all. the missing libraries were ft2lib and expat.

Thanks everyone!

Applications / OpenOffice 4.1.7 gives error on startup
« on: May 04, 2020, 04:07:20 am »
With WarpIN now working, I've got OpenOffice installed. Yum has installed all prerequisites. Yet, I'm seeing the attached error message.

The DLL mentioned, G:\OpenOffice417\program\deploy.dll exists on disk, 576k, date 1/27/20.

Hardware / Re: USBDRV ?
« on: April 30, 2020, 03:41:13 pm »
USB audio and WebCam work with Lars drivers and Arca Noae drivers 11.17. Arca Noae drivers 12.x do not yet have support for the USB functions required for audio or webcam.

USB audio works very well. If you are a long-time user, you may have to recall what good support looks like.

The correct answer appears to be the ACPI one. Re-installing WarpIN makes no difference. With ACPIDAEMON.EXE terminated, WarpIN opens it's database normally.

Do you have something like this in Config.Sys to select which adapter to use?

DEVICE=K:\MMOS2\UNIAUD32.SYS /A:1

Applications / WarpIN: Exception on Main thread
« on: April 27, 2020, 11:45:13 pm »
On a remote system, I get a message when I run WarpIN (see attachment)

The log contains nothing special. The WarpIN directory is on the PATH and LIBPATH which is normal on an eCS 1.2r system. All the files seem to be from version 1.0.22.

Removing the database files didn't help. This copy of WarpIN successfully installed OpenOffice 4.1.3 a few years ago. According to the log, nothing has happened since then.

Installing from USB stick hangs. You probably guessed that. Why did I even try that?

Installing IBM File and Print Client returns an error. I'll post an update after another attempt from DVD.

Following up, I can see that this time, File and Print Client installed successfully. I don't know why it failed before.

It turns out that USB stack 12.1 is the cause of the freezes. I installed USB stack 11.17 and the freezes are gone.
