Hi Ian,

I'm not quite sure how a compiler cockup would cause a problem just for OS/2, especially when all the other java applications that I use run the file open without problems - even their earlier version works.  It is more like they were attempting something smart that works on windows and have now out smarted themselves.

Ian, the latest is jAlbum 11.4.0 and is just  They only put the version numbers on the older versions, the current version is always which can be a bit confusing if you don't rename them after download.

Hi Pete,

jAlbum 11.4.1 works here without any problems but you do have to get the zip file - as Doug said - because none of the installers work on OS/2.  In fact I may have been partly instrumental in them keeping the zip version because I complained when the installer wouldn't work on OS/2 and asked that they reinstate the zip version.  I will praise them for the effort they take to keep it working on our OS.

To bypass the problems with the cmd file I created a program object for this version, just as I have for the older versions.

As everyone has found it can be started but it is impossible to open any files - which as Pete says makes it useless.

The two attachments show the problem is with the way the file open dialogue just keeps on adding to the string by repeating everything - it will do this until it eventually causes a fault in java and libc065.

This raises the question of what has changed in the file open code in the new version as opposed to that which still works in the older versions?  Until that is answered and fixed, we OS/2 users are restricted to the older versions.

Thank you everyone for your helpful ideas, several of which have been noted down for possible future use.  I went the multi hop route and the VMs are now up and running in their new server.

Now another question.

During the course of trying various things I loaded the latest OS/2 version of firefox on the server and all went well.  That is until I found a picture of a circuit board I was interested in and clicked MB2 to bring up the save image menu.  On clicking ok firefox vanished - it did save the image though.  I tried it several times with different images all giving the same results.  I also get the same thing happening on other multi core processor boxes so the question is, is firefox SMP safe?

Andy, I've already tried ncftp and it appears to be stuck at the 2GB barrier on OS/2.  It did flag up a warning that it couldn't continue though which is more than the others did.

It now looks as if I will borrow a windows notebook and use FileZilla to transfer the files from the old server to it and then transfer them to a NAS box.  Then use SAMBA to transfer the files from the NAS to their new home.

I have to agree with Ben we do need a GOOD FTP client for OS/2 that has no restrictions on file size.

Thank you all for the suggestions which I will try out tomorrow if it's not as hot as it was today (45 degree C outside and about 60 C inside because the AC is off for its yearly check).

I have the IBM FTP update for greater than 2GB files from testcase and so far it has died after transferring just under 5GB (maybe a standard DVD).

As I said these are larger than 12GB, actually 12.5GB to 25.8GB virtual machine files that my client now wants to put back in operation after the arson of last year.

I have a need to move some rather large files between two networks, by large I mean greater than 12GB.

The easiest way to do this is via FTP.  The problem is that I have not been able to discover an OS/2 FTP client that can handle that size of file, most clag out at 2GB.

Is there such an OS/2 FTP client that will do the job or do I have to look at some sort of kludge to get the job done?

Something else I've just found.  Extension manager does not work!

I have been able to get it to 'apparently' add an extension but having done so it locks up - I can't close it and have to kill soffice.bin to get anywhere.  Needles to say, even though the extension is listed it does not appear where it should and is unusable.

Does anyone know where these problems can be reported?

An observation after I put OO4 on several of the machines here.

All the single core processor machines here throw a fault on closing similar to the following:

07-22-2013  19:35:55  SYS3170  PID 06b9  TID 0001  Slot 00d1

EBP=0012fca0  FLG=00092213

DOSCALL1.DLL 0003:0000c541

While all the 2, 4 and 6 core processor machines have no problems so far.  I can open odt documents and even windows docx documents as well as windows excel and power point files.

I wonder if this may have something to do with the problems others have.  Unfortunately, there doesn't appear to be anywhere to report problems.

Hi Pete,

I've had a bit more luck than you.

I unzipped it and moved openoffice 4 to the root of my test drive.  Going on past experience renamed it to openoffice-4 then created a program object for soffice.exe, double clicked on it and it started with no apparent problem, even if it was rather slow.

It opened an .odt document that I have been working on - using libreoffice 4 for windows in virtualbox - it even allowed me to edit and save it.

When I closed it, it threw a fault in doscall1 for some reason which I will try and track down when I have more time to play with it.

Storage / Re: JFS Error during boot
« on: June 09, 2013, 04:13:37 pm »
Eirik, where did you get the 'chkdsk /f c:' from?  As far as I know it should be 'chkdsk c: /f:n' with the f:n being F0 (the default) f1, f2 or f3.  As I don't have bootable JFS I may be wrong and what you say is just for that but it does not shows that in the OS/2 command reference.

OS/2, and I assume eCS because it is based on OS/2, is not a multi user OS.  That being said, it is possible, with a lot of effort, to make it so a number of people can log in to an OS/2 machine and have their own desktop and settings but not all at once.

Here, our servers run OS/2 as webserver and file server and storage with each workstation running OS/2.  We do have a few applications that have been produced as web apps and as such can be accessed by any computer with a browser but I don't think this is what you want to do, although it might do what you want.

A little more information as to the type of working you envisage would help us to help you if possible.

I don't know exactly what the message means not having bootable JFS. 

The first thing I would do is to boot to the maintenance partition and run chkdsk C: /F and see what it throws up.  If you don't have a maintenance partition then boot from CD and do it that way [I understand that the eCS CD allows you to do that].
