Which compiler suite do you want to use? And from which system/GUI toolkit do you want to port? Old windows code or from latest VS framework?

For SNAP and SMP you need ArcaOS. ...
I'm think there is nothing in the ArcaOS SNAP build which improves SMP interoperability. Of course ArcaNoae makes a pretty good job in improving OS/2 to be usable on more modern systems. So if you've some spare money buy ArcaOS licenses ;-). But if the latest free SNAP 3.1.8 doesn't work don't expect miracles from the AN version.

IIRC Jans FreeDOS DFSee version has all these USB stuff integrated. Maybe you want to test his ready to go FreeDOS image.

Unauthorized - sounds like you're not authorized. Please don't ask why I'm authorized. I can't remember how I set it up anymore. Seems it was long ago. Is there nothing about in the AN wiki?

A few years ago I asked Timur Tabi some questions regarding OS/2 and multimedia. Although he don't use OS/2 since a very long time he answered politely and in detail. Maybe he still answers specific questions if you ask directly. I think he's the most knowledgeable guy in this field.

I beg to differ. The  32 bit test versions are noticeably faster (with USB 2),
What is noticeably faster? If you read what I wrote at the testers list you'll see there is nearly no speed difference when reading/writing to external disks. Different version of usbmsd make more difference than the 16/32 stacks. At least that's the result of my tests.

Maybe that changes with USB3. And maybe it's a good thing in the long term. But until your post above I didn't see anyone claiming there's a speed improvement for regular use cases.

A number of people have for one reason or another no access to
The one reason I can think of is using a non OS/2 browser/system. If you need to access this site from another system I think it's enough to switch the user agent.

What are the other reasons?

I now found out that I always tried to connect to the google calendar with the SM integrated CalDAV or ICAL mechanism. This works on Win but with our SM only in one direction - fetching is okay but not sending something.

To use the 'Provider for Google Calender' you need to select the 4 line in the Format options when creating a new calendar called 'Google Kalender'. Not ICS or CalDAV. This way it works. Something I never thought of or maybe tested years ago without success and forgot.

I read that too. But it's 0.25 from 22. Mai 2015 which is installed here on this Win Box. And it works. There's also installed Lightning 5.4 on this SM 2.49.2

I was just able to create and sync a calendar entry successfully from Seamonkey calendar to google calendar.

Thanks that's the information I wanted to hear. So basically it works with our SM. I now have to find why it's not working for me. For Win I use Provider für Google Kalender 0.25. I think I use the same with my OS/2 boxes but have to check at evening. Andy, what version do you use?

Internet / Seamonkey Calendar - google CalDAV 'Modification failed'
« on: April 15, 2019, 06:19:53 pm »
I'm trying to synchronize my Seamonkey Calendar with google. Fetching entries works but I can not create a new event and synchronize to google.

I know how to setup and it works for me with SM running under Windoze. But can't get it to work with our OS/2 builds.

Has anyone ever successfully installed google calendar CalDAV synchronization? Any hints?

Dave do you have the matching SM builds too? Are the improvements you've made the last months relevant for SM too? I think I'm using your latest SM but it's some time ago since I updated. Maybe you'll provide a link to the best one here again to assure we SM users are using the latest greatest. Thanks..

I had the psprint problem on one of my systems too. It was with the latest Seamonkey. In the end I uninstalled some printers and got it working.

Before I tried different ps drivers too without success. Copied them over from a working system did not work too. Think I used the pr...exe comming with pmfax(?) to delete the queues and drivers until SM was happy. I guess my printer installations where messed up badly. Though I had > 6 printers installed which I didn't even owned at that time with different queues and.... So cleaning up this mess was not a bad idea anyway.

Hardware / Re: Turning Off Monitor (DPMS) with Panorama

There may be more than one way to switch off displays. At least for desktop systems (external monitor) there's an easy one. For my package of the black utility I write to the PCI registers of the ATI graphic card to disable primary and secondary output. After that the connected monitor decides to go into power down as there is no graphic signal available on any input any more. With other graphic adapters it is enough to write to the proper VGA registers. Older graphic card bioses seem emulate the VGA registers well enough to do the job. But not the ATI X300 and up.

With notebooks usually there is no such electronic which looks at input video signal. Guess you have to find the register(s) which switches the backlight converter on/off. No clue if this is standardized in ACPI or any other standard.
