Internet / Re: Firefox 17.0.11 - Couldn't load xpcom.dll
« on: November 08, 2014, 11:31:01 pm »
I always get this if I attempt to open a URL from PMMail but Firefox isn't already running.

You need to set the working directory to the Firefox program directory

Aha!!! Thank you...never realized that the PMMail setting had put a '.' in that field...no wonder the DLL was not being found...!!!

UPDATE => I get a chance to try this out...the program settings updated as per my previous post, but result is still the same...so I suspect something else is going on. For what's it worth, I have a fairly old version of PMMail, like 2.00.15?

Storage / NAS and OS/2?
« on: November 01, 2014, 03:37:41 pm »
OK, so my kids (10 and 12 yo) have now begun to 'run rampant' with their tablets/cameras/etc...LOL...not that I'm complaining, but I need to figure out a way to manage their media data (photos, audio, and videos). Storing it on the main OS/2 machine is really not an option...I for one do NOT give my kids the access to the OS/2 box, number of reasons. They do have their own WinXP machine, however, to simplify access to the media from devices like a TV for example I'm looking more and more at the NAS type storage.

Soo...I took a peek at: Western Digital WDBCTL0020HWT My Cloud (http://www.wdc.com/en/products/products.aspx?id=1140), reviews say it's not particularly awe inspiring...however, it's a starting point. Most importantly, I do need to understand how 'workable' daily interface to/from my OS/2 machine (where bulk of the data and media applications reside today) is.

Can anyone share their experience with the NAS devices?

I'm primarily focusing on the connectivity/protocol aspect here. So I would have this thing hard-wired to my router, no problem there. But I need to connect to the device afterwards. I see that this WD device in particular supports:

SMB/CIFS network filesystems
AFP ( for Apple Time Machine)
NFS (only to default Public mount)
FTP server

...the SMB/CIFS piece as best as I can tell is something that SAMBA port could interface with...something like NetDrive would probably work with this too (again, through the SAMBA plug-in I'm thinking).

If you tried this type of a setup, how have you done it?

Thanks!

there is a new zip at netlabs. same name as before, but with changed entries. Please try with that. One tester just told that FB works again with it.

Silvan

yes, that version fixed the problem I was seeing...the ticket response from diver is regarding a change to the authentication certificate process.

Hi all,

you are sure that Port 5222 is open and not somehow protected by a firewall?
Could you eventually show the psi settings you use?

I only use gmail/gtalk with psi, and this works w/o problems.

regards
Silvan

Yes, Port 5222 is open, I have a NetGear WNDR3800 router and use PortForwarding...co-incidentally with 0.15 I never actually had any sort of PortForwarding settings in place...never had an issue...but given this result I decided to rule this out.

I'd love to show all the other PSI settings just not sure if there is a way to do this short of doing a screenshot capture attachement...???

Also just noticed my Netlabs ticket has been updated, I will provide some feedback.

Well, I went back to try the latest PSI 0.16 DEV version...still no luck on my end...just logged a ticket on Netlabs, see http://trac.netlabs.org/qtapps/ticket/88

Is anyone else having problems connecting with the 0.16 PSI?

Internet / Re: Firefox for eCS (OS/2) 24.8.1 Beta2 using very high CPU.
« on: October 05, 2014, 08:53:12 pm »
No auto-reboots here, but...when I moved to SMP config (AMD Phenom II - X6) Firefox went into this crazy CPU spike mode...ultimately what has always worked for me is to set the following in CONFIG.SYS:

SET NSPR_OS2_NO_HIRES_TIMER=1

This is documented in the 24.8.1 README as well, take a peek at it for more details.

I have not tried turning this OFF with 24.8.1 yet though...only had a single re-boot since my move from 17.x to 24.8.1.

Hmm...I used to have this program, then I believe there was a patch of some sorts released...I have 0.15 here, sound is turned ON all the time, no hangs or issues. But...the 0.16 drop (or several I tried) actually wasn't able to connect correctly. I haven't tried the latest one that just got released.

Let me know if you want to see the directory listing of what I have.

Programming / Re: New OS/4 kernel :: SVN4172

I will post an instruction of how to get the COM port log into the #Getting_the_log section on the wiki page later and then inform you.

Yeah, the 'Getting_the_log' section is what I previously looked at...as well as the whole article that's posted there and the various txt/readmes supplied in the distro...if it was there, believe me, I would not be wasting everyone's time here..lol.

Alright...I will watch that link, if you want me to review the English version, no problem, send it over, PM, etc, etc...I'm happy to do that.

Regarding the 2nd issue raised you responded to: well, let's just agree to disagree. From my point of view, using your approach you are apparently equally 'wrong' then...but I hate to just state such things as if they were a fact, if you get my point. Let me explain further. I have some 15+ yrs experience in the IT industry, a good chunk of it in application development. A debugging process is typically repeatable once application reaches a certain level of maturity. Until that is achieved it is often very helpful to have as large of a team taking part in the process as possible in order to weed out all the various bugs/problems/design shortcomings and so on. In our case, if we/you treat each one of the reported issues as if these were merely 'once in a lifetime' events, non-repeatable occurencies, you are very likely to miss a whole gamut of configurations/hardware setups (given the kernel subject matter here) that other potential users of your software may in fact be deploying today. Meanwhile, by sharing this knowledge with everyone (separate thread can be started, no problem there) you are actually not only improving your software but at the same time educating the end-users, and that is priceless in a small community like our OS2 group is.

Anyways...happy to help as the OS4 approach holds promise. But if I'm going to spend my time doing this it is NOT merely for my benefit, but for the benefit of the community at large. Believe me, a 5-core CPU configuration with each core running at 4GHz is pretty darn sweet already...no complaints there...OS4 is more of a technological curiousity to me at this point in time.

Can you please join IRC channel #netlabs on freenode, and PM me, dbanet?

Yes, will do...thank you, that I exactly what I was looking for. I understand that there may be a lot of debugging to do, but regardless of how much it is would it not be better to do so in this forum type environment? The benefit is that anyone else who may encounter a problem has an immediate reference to previous debugging activities....food for thought as they say.

I see you're having issues running OS/2 on your machine

The trouble I have is only powering up the 6th core of the CPU...I am running fine with the 5 cores...the forum post you showed was placed by me there because it appears the OS4 kernel hang I was seeing is very similar to what Lars was seeing. This is why I attached the output of the mptable...that is a whole bunch of info as you know that provides detailed snapshot of the SMP configuration on the PC. I'm trying to walk through it on my own to understand my 6th core hang...I am attaching the same output to this post, please take a look at it.

Dariusz,

please  show com port log   -  it may help to understand where is hang

How do I do that? I see the DEBUG setup instructions, but nothing (as best as I can tell) about troubleshooting through the COM port.

I can only assume this requires me to hook up another OS/2 PC over the COM port? No problem there, I still have my old machine...but could use some detailed instructions to walk me through this.

Programming / Re: OS4APIC.PSD - /APIC switch does not work
« on: March 19, 2014, 10:12:01 pm »
I believe I'm seeing the same behaviour as Lars.

My OS2APIC configuration runs w/o ACPI turned on. MPS table in BIOS is set to 1.4. I'm attaching the output of the MPTABLE program, which coincidentally I started looking at the source of as I attempted to debug why my machine absolutely refuses to SMP boot with all 6 CPU cores enabled...stuck at RESOURCE.SYS.

Any ideas?

Boris,
I had previously attempted to get 4168 running, no luck. Now tried 4172, unfortunately no luck either, even more, I am seeing the same issue as with 4168.

Namely, upon selecting the configuration to book (os2ldr.ini) the line stating which configuration is booting is displayed and then....NUTHING...the screen sits there, no HARD lock, num-lock, caps-lock still works...but nothing actually happens on the screen.

Here is my os2ldr.ini:
=== START ===
[kernel]
os2ldr.104   =  IBM OS2LDR 14.104a_SMP ,Restart
os2ldr.105   =  IBM OS2LDR 14.105a_SMP ,Restart
os4krnlr     =  OS4 Current - RETAIL,PRELOAD,NOLOGO,CFGEXT=os4
os4krnl      =  OS4 Current - DEBUG,PRELOAD,NOLOGO,LOADSYM,CFGEXT=os4
os4krnl      =  OS4 Current - DEBUG - show driver names,ALTF2,NOLOGO,CFGEXT=os4
=== END ===

All the other files are present, doscall1.dll has been replaced with the one from the package, clock & screen drivers are present.

Any ideas what to try next? I have no idea how to even get some debug info up on the screen.

This is on a machine which successfully runs a 5-core Phenom II X6 CPU (MSI 880G-E45 motherboard) using the "OS2APIC.PSD /P=5 /APIC" driver.

Thanks!
