Hi Guzzi,

now I do feel addressed.
It never was my intention to complain! In my first posting here I wrote:
Anyway thank you to those who continue to work on firefox!
And before opening the issue I considered and tried every suggestion made here in the forum.


My remarks were general and certainly not aimed at you. In fact, you already did exactly what I suggested. When a few people with the same problem add to the ticket it will probably be reopened, or it might have to wait until FF 52 has been ported. Dmitry does take his work seriously, but, as I said, it is almost impossible to fix a bug that he can't reproduce.

Hi Holger,

...I opened a ticket, but it was closed quite soon by dimik.
Perhaps someone would like to contribute too?

Yeah, I read that...bugger, not sure why dmik closed it so soon, I really did not think much was done to research. I did update the ticket with my details of what I saw, including a screenshot of the YouTube stats page overlaid on the video presentation space, which is clearly showing that YouTube msg...hopefully they re-consider.

The problem is, that bugs should be reproducible to be able to address them. In dmiks case it does seem to work after reloading the page. So, he has nothing to go on. Further testing and providing a "fails always" scenario will surely reopen the bug, as will more reports of people having the same issue. Remember, a bug does not exist until it has been reported and only one report might be a setup problem. Complaining in fora is not a bug report (not addressed to you, Dariusz). Here it works, but I have a different issue. Playing a youtube video, it will start normally, then display  the dreaded loading circle. Gets stuck there until I move the slider back to restart it. After that, it often plays normally. Does anyone else see this? I so, I will open a bug.

Typically a bug that affects only one user) Kudos to Martin for investigating it-

Mail-News / Re: PMMail 3.22 and SMTP authentication...can it do that?

Paid? For what? You paid for version 2.x, which was owned by somebody else. VOICE bought the rights, so they have the right to charge a fee for their work on version 3.x. PMMail is actually a bonus for being a member of VOICE, nothing more. The proceeds are used to support OS/2, in many ways, and VOICE is a non profit organization that very much deserves support. BTW, ALL work done to PMMail is done by volunteers.

 Please see for the details.

To clarify this, since VOICE is now a Dutch based 'stichting', it no longer has members, therefore PMMail is of course no longer exclusive for members. From the VOICE bylaws: "A PMMail/2 licence is free for those who have been at least two consecutive years a VOICE sponsor with one standard sponsor unit per year and for board members. Others can obtain a PMMail/2 licence by donating two standard sponsor units to VOICE."

As Doug mentioned, the income from sales of sponsorunits is mostly used for funding software development, some funds go to sponsoring Warpstock Europe. The board does NOT get any renumeration. In previous years, some board members got free admission to Warpstock, next year this will not be the case. We care about the platform and the users and dedicate all of the income of VOICE to promotion and support. The board pays for stamps when having to send snail mail out of their own pockets).

Same here- But... If I use after closing a session without logging out, I am still logged in. I can't find a setting in my profile to stay logged in, so I assume it automatically keeps you logged in, perhaps based on IP address.
Looked a bit further and found out:
It is indeed ip address and sadly it only remembers one. The workaround is to login with the full version (scroll down to switch to it), checking the 'stay logged in' box. Then close the session and open the mobile version again.

The latest version from the AN exp repo does not crash when browsing maps or using streetview.

To paraphrase Vladimir Ilich Ulianov: Backup, backup, backup). Thank you for your efforts in keeping this forum running and all the other stuff you do for the OS/2 incarnations. Would you be willing to help out with a funding drive to port the open source QT5.5 to OS/2?

Internet / SFTP client
« on: June 24, 2017, 12:58:39 am »

Is there an SFTP client available other than the command line one that comes with eCS ArcaOS? I searched and only found KSPC which needs open SSL knix.
The command line one does not accept any input on a password prompt here with a certain site. I don't know if that is SSH related, using Pauls SSH.
Might try installing the knix SSH and KSPC later.

Related to this, currently the SSH clients rpm is broken and there seems to be a problem fixing it. Paul, if you read this, perhaps you have a few pointers? Ticket

As Roderick mentioned to me, DVD RW often seem to be problematic, use a DVD R instead. Also might help to limit burn speed.

Jan van Wijk, author of DFSee, is likely very well acquinted with the structures of several file systems. You might drop him a line.

Setup & Installation / Re: Arca OS and WiFi

I just read the ticket. The most important issue is in the first line that diver wrote: "You can't update rpm alone". He also wrote: "As a yum update should work of course", which is the CLI command.So, first you nseemed to have missed that first info, then diver failed to clearly indicate that what he wrote was the CLI command. It goes from bad to worse after that. Clearly miscommunication for which you are as much to to blame as the other party. My advice: apologise for the misunderstandings and possible overreactions  on your part and ask to reopen the ticket. See what happens from there.

I have tried to install ArcaOS to E: with selecting custom install and selecting F: to install the Unix environment to. On F: lives an existing yum/rpm/anpm environment. The installer hangs at the point it is trying to install the unix environment- The last log entry I see is:

Boot drive: E:
Destination: F:

I have tried moving etc\rpm, etc\yum and user\lib\rpm away from F: but it didn't make a difference. Has anyone else noticed similar behaviour?
Installing with unix environment to E: works as expected. I could simply edit the config,sys and delete the unix stuff from E: as a workaround but prefer to work out if this is a bug first (The installer hang itself IS a bug, it encounters a problem and does not report it).
As far as I'm aware it should be perfectly ok to share a unix env between two bootable partitions on a third partition because the rpm database is on the unixroot partition, so stuff should stay in sync.
