General Discussion / OS/2 in different languages
« on: March 22, 2018, 04:01:55 pm »

I remember that an OS2VOICE IRC chat I remember that Alex said that it will also be desirable to have MCP1/2 ISOs in languages that they don't have.

I don't know if Alex can join and tell us which languages he (and Arca) already have, and which ones we know that exists but they are missing.

From my side I never finished the wiki page when I tried to collect all the languages available for OS/2. 

For the moment I'm also looking for older version of OS/2 in strange languages, I always wanted to see the Arabic and Hebrew versions of it :)  If you have anything, software screenshots, pictures of the boxes, etc, please let me know.

I will be also trying to find some of the IBM announcement letters to try to remember the release dates of some.

Thanks Silvan I will be trying those on my installers.

I still have some doubts about "BuildArch: i686" which I took from the spec sample I got.
When it should be i686, i386 and/or pentium4 ? 

For what I see on the netlabs RPM the majority is i686, and where are no binaries it uses "noarch" (when there are configuration files, icon, text, etc)

In case of this old games should I only stick to "i686" or should I generate also the "petium4" packages?

Hi Jon.

It seems something went wrong because the picture of the item is a suitcase.
Check it out and put the pictures of the OS/2 Warp 4 Server you are offering.

I found on a webpage that they suggest:

%if "%{noclean}" == ""
   rm -rf $RPM_BUILD_ROOT

I will check it out.

like you never use rm -rf $RPM_BUILD_ROOT in the install section
%clean does that for you anyway
then you don't have to copy files which you reference later on with %doc or %license, as those %doc or %license copy them to the right location anyway.
look at the macros and then you see what they do.

Hi Silvan.
Can you point me to a spec sample on how to use %clean?

Thanks, I made it work with the %{_localstatedir}.
Maybe, doing it by the book" the score files should be at "/var/games/DiggerReloaded/digger.sco". (this is how I did it on this case)

The nice things is that setting the working directory also as "/var/games/DiggerReloaded/" allows the program to create the INI file on that directory too.(while it uses the .sco file).

It seems to work this way. I still have many doubts on how to put some stuff on the /home/ directory with RPM, but maybe with more practice I will understand.


It is an interesting news, check it out:

But don't let the size fool you: This sucker has the computing power of the x86 chip from 1990. Okay, so that's not great compared to what we have today, but cut it some slack — you need a microscope to see it.

So, can it run OS/2?  :D :D



I have no idea how to fix that yet.  Some people says it is the Joomla Cache, or it may be the JFusion plugins that connects Joomla-MediaWiki and SMF forum.

Any tips are welcome.

Talking about icons I just modified this ones for the "System Setup" since I like to have them matching.  It seems that the trick is to have the icon on 40x40 and the 20x20 for the detail view.

I need some reference of the syntax that the specs uses to name some of the FHS directories.
I found some here, but no Home references:

But I still haven't found what to put on "%files" for the .sco file to be included in the package. Even if home it is not the right place to locate that file, I still do not know how to include it on the package. What should I use like "%{_bindir}/*.exe" to include the sco file ?

I'm sorry. I had removed Andreas comment and I'm in the process of banning him permanently of OS2World. Sorry but he just don't understand this is a moderated forum and not his home. The first 6 days ban expired and he just came back to rant more and more instead of cool off and move on.

Sorry, but he offers no help to this forum with this "know it all / I'm always right attitude" he may be welcome on other OS/2 communities but not here. His free of speech can be tolerated on his own personal page.

Hi Dave

What about the stuff at "%files" ?? Any idea how do I reference the digger.sco file? I have no idea what to put there.

I'm going forward making some more RPM installers. I'm doing one for Digger Reloaded.

Everything was going fine until I need to put a file (digger.sco - the score files) on the /home/ directory.

mkdir -p $RPM_BUILD_ROOT/@unixroot/usr/bin
mkdir -p $RPM_BUILD_ROOT/@unixroot/usr/share/doc/%{name}-%{version}
mkdir -p $RPM_BUILD_ROOT/@unixroot/usr/share/licenses/%{name}-%{version}
mkdir -p $RPM_BUILD_ROOT/@unixroot/home/.config/%{name}
cp -p *.exe $RPM_BUILD_ROOT/@unixroot/usr/bin
cp -p digger.txt $RPM_BUILD_ROOT/@unixroot/usr/share/doc/%{name}-%{version}
cp -p readme.txt $RPM_BUILD_ROOT/@unixroot/usr/share/doc/%{name}-%{version}
cp -p copyright.txt $RPM_BUILD_ROOT/@unixroot/usr/share/licenses/%{name}-%{version}
cp -p digger.sco $RPM_BUILD_ROOT/@unixroot/home/.config/%{name}

%doc digger.txt readme.txt
%license copyright.txt

I have no idea what to put on %files so the RPM can grab digger.sco inside the RPM package.  (That is where I have the ???????)

Help is welcome.

Hi again Dan.

It can be something like this:

You can put your installation tips/tricks on the wiki page (Same user and password of this forum).

If you provide the pci.exe report we can give more details of the components that are working.
