Programming / Re: Compiling PMMail with GCC 4.9.2
« on: June 05, 2019, 06:05:53 am »
OK, I combined gcc installed by rpm/yum with the rest of the PMMail build environment. It looks promising.

I can supply ilink.exe myself, but is there one in the rpm/yum universe?

Why aren't you installing GCC 4.9.2 with YUM/RPM or ANPM?

I tried installing gcc with yum/rpm. I can compile the example code with that gcc.

But I can't find the environment. How does that copy of gcc find its header files?

I'm starting a new thread about compiling PMMail using GCC 4.9.2.,2092.0.html

Programming / Compiling PMMail with GCC 4.9.2
« on: June 03, 2019, 07:42:03 pm »
I'd like to compile PMMail using GCC 4.9.2. Currently I have GCC 3.3.5 and a bunch of tools working.

I had hoped to just drop in GCC 4.9.2 in place of GCC 4.9.2, but somehow my GCC 4.9.2 setup is wrong.

It compiles PMMail just fine until it hits a va_start() macro. I have the same trouble compiling the attached vatest.c

In file included from k:/programs/gcc/include/machine/stdarg.h:2:0,
                 from k:/programs/gcc/include/stdarg.h:2,
                 from vatest.c:1:
vatest.c: In function 'int sum(int, ...)':
vatest.c:18:4: error: '__builtin_stdarg_start' was not declared in this scope
    va_start(ap, num_args);

Those don't look like the right include files to me. Something is wrong, but what?

I installed ArcaOS with AN USB 11.17, and USB Audio 227, and this arrangement is working. As Wim predicted, replacing AN USB 12.x with 11.17 was all that is needed for USB Audio 227 to install.

With USB stack 10.227 and USB Audio 10.227, I now have sound on the M720s system. I had to rearrange the Config.Sys since AN USB stack 12.x has a different requirement of the order of USBD.SYS and USBHID.SYS.

The big obstacle was not the SYBA USB Stereo adapter. I believe the limitation was the Startek USB 2.0 PCIe card. It can run a mouse and keyboard, and a bootable USB stick, but not USB audio with AN USB driver. I guess I should try AN USB stack (11 and 12) with USB Audio 10.227 next.

I installed the USB Audio 223 on my laptop, where USB audio had worked before, and the SYBA adapter is working fine. It must be a USB Audio 1.0 compatible device.

But something is stopping it from working on the desktop, a Lenovo M720s that has only USB 3.0 ports. I am using an add-in Startek USB 2.0 PCIe card to provide USB. This seems to work for booting from memory stick, and mouse and keyboard.

But for both USB Audio 223 and USB Audio 226, there is no sound. When I run play.cmd, it does not ever complete. I plan to get 227 and try it. I'll let you know if it works.

I tried installing USBAUD2, but there is no difference. The following command never returns. No sound is emitted, either. This happened sometimes with a bad MMPM2.INI. But I don't understand that file well enough.

Multimedia / SYBA USB Stereo Sound Adapter: Good or bad?
« on: May 24, 2019, 12:38:39 am »
I'm trying out the SYBA USB Stereo Sound Adapter.

So far, I'm not getting sound. The package advertises that it uses CMedia CM119. I'm attaching the dump from USBDock. The device is 0D8C:0008

I installed ArcaOS with no sound adapter, then installed the USB Audio driver. This has worked in the past for some other adapter I no longer have.

Should this adapter work?

For automated install users, it's nice to provide a command line version of install that expects no user feedback in any form. Usually this is trivial for the developer to do.

I just did this myself.

Get Weasel and the extra tool qmail. Qmail.cmd is a rexx script to send e-mails. It uses Weasel to actually send. I'm also using STunnel to do the SSL because my ISP requires secure e-mail.

This is regarding the 4/4 version of Firefox. I'll get up to testing the more recent build shortly.

Firefox does not seem to start by itself. If I put firefox into Internet Application Integration so that I can launch web URL objects, or open a web page from Thunderbird, that does not work until I install Run!

The bitwise port starts without any help from Run!

It is also possible to add our own branding directory here and have our own browser, something to consider as we change the code.

Can we call it Web Explorer?  :)

Setup & Installation / Re: ArcaOS fix for Windows seamless problem ?

I think the problems are way more complex than are pictured here. Roderick gives a hint about video and virtual dos machines, but there are a lot of moving parts. On my machine WinOS2 windowed session appears to work perfectly. I have ArcaOS 5.0.3 plus some upgrades.

Hardware / Re: T420 and Intel 5100 Wifi
« on: March 29, 2019, 09:29:50 pm »
I have a nice web page describing the process for a W500. It's nice to know it would work on a T420.

I have no problem switching back and forth for WiFi and wired. I do find that to do that well, it has to start on wired.

 Does the BIOS on the T420 complain about a foreign adapter? There was no such complaint about the W500, but the W500 was available new with a 5100.
