Applications / ODIN Revisited
« on: June 14, 2019, 06:59:27 pm »
Hi

Just checking some other thread it makes me wonder if we should try to revisit some of the old Windows 32bits programs that used to run on ODIN and check how are they running today. Maybe today testing those apps can be easier with Virtual Machines, back on the early days of ODIN,  I remember I used to test some Windows apps with more constrains since I didn't want to screw up my OS/2 working configuration on real hardware and had bandwith limitations to download software.

Today I tried RealPlayer 8, to remember the old days, maybe it is not very useful now. But it was fun to see that the installer already worked, and also the program. I just run "pe rp8-setup.exe" and it installed, "pe realplayer.exe" to run the software.

I also remember that mirc used to work, but I didn't have the old ones, I tried the latest v7.55. It also installed, but it crashed with some error when I tried to run it.

Maybe it can be interesting to revisit some old Win32bits games.

Any Win32bits software that you remember that used to work, or maybe that you still use?

Regards

Programming / Compiling Tookit WPS applications
« on: May 31, 2019, 05:05:05 pm »
Hi.

I'm trying to compile the OS/2 Toolkit 4.5 WPS samples as a learning experience.
I had started with the "car" sample first.

I just did a quick "nmake car.mak >out.txt" and I got this errors:

Any ideas what I'm doing wrong with CAR ?

Hardware / M.2 Question
« on: May 23, 2019, 06:05:59 pm »
Hi

Just checking the hardware world today, trying to upgrade my brothers PC with a M.2 SSD I noticed that there two kinds of M.2 SSD.
1) M.2 SATA.
2) PCI express, PCIe or NVMe.
Here it is an article that I was reading about it. According to the article M.2 is just the form factor, so it is always important to check which technology it uses.

My question is, are both kind of technology on this form factor (M.2) not working on OS/2 - ArcaOS ?  or just one ?

Regards

Update: Corrected SDD to SSD

Article Discussions / ArcaOS - 2nd Year
« on: May 16, 2019, 03:00:23 pm »
Hi

I missed ArcaOS birthday yesterday. According to history,  May 15, 2017 was the day that ArcaOS 5.0.0 was released.

Congratulations for the Arca Noae team.

I think it is a good moment to comment about the ups and down and try to do some constructive criticism to the platform. I hope I can write more about that later this day on some free time, but I really want to hear what do you think.

Give you cheers away, and remember to focus the constructive criticism on the software, actions or strategy and not on the people.

Programming / OS/2 Books - Samples Companion Disks
« on: May 15, 2019, 12:06:07 am »
Hi

I'm trying to collect the samples (companion diskettes) of some old OS/2 books about software development.
I have the list of books here on the EDM/2 wiki.

If you happen to have the diskette or know the download link of the missing ones, please let me know (privately or here).

Programming / What is needed for Node.js apps?
« on: April 30, 2019, 10:14:04 pm »
Hi

Just from a theoretical point of view, I want to know what would be needed to have Node.js stand alone apps to run on OS/2.

What are the framework, library set and/or runtimes that are needed to have node.js application like Riot.im , Butter Project (base for popcorn time) and others running as stand alone apps? I know that some node.js apps runs on Firefox on OS/2 like Riot.im, but I was wondering what is needed to have those running as stand alone.

This is just for my knowledge, don't think that I'm saying it is the #1 priority for us.

Applications / Mesa3D library.
« on: April 29, 2019, 04:24:01 pm »
Hi

I have interest to find the latest port of Mesa3D library (do not confuse with Mesa spreadsheet).

I found that WarpMesaGL (port of Mesa 3D) latest version was "alpha minus 1.6".
http://web.archive.org/web/20060118225746/http://www.laser.ru/soft/WarpMesaGL/
But I can not find the files. Does anybody has it? Compiled libraies and source code if possible.

I found an older version on OS2Site.com (Source code and binaries), version alpha minus 1.4.

If someone has the files (or a link) to version "alpha minus 1.6" please let me know.

Regards

Off Topic discussions / Haiku gets NVMe driver
« on: April 22, 2019, 01:46:48 pm »
From OSNews.com

Quote
Due to the awesome work by long-time developer waddlesplash, nightly images after hrev53079 have read/write NVMe support built-in.
 […]

These devices now show up in /dev/disk/nvme/ and are fully useable by Haiku.

I’ve personally tested my Samsung 950 Pro and seen raw read speeds up to 1.4GiB/s.

I always enjoy checking the progress of other alternative OSes as an off topic thing.

Applications / Converting .BOO to PDF ?
« on: April 04, 2019, 03:24:46 pm »
Hi

What do you suggest to:
1) Open .Boo files
2) Convert them to PDF

I want to do that because I want to have some books readable on the internet and not everybody has a .boo reader.

Programming / CommonPoint for OS/2
« on: April 02, 2019, 11:13:09 pm »
Hi

Talking about old things, I want to see if someone had ever got their hands on "CommonPoint for OS/2". It was an app framework produced by Taligent. There were some articles (1995) that some betas and released were available for OS/2, and even IBM announce the discontinuation of this product on 1999.

Please let me know if someone has it, or knows if it was included on some DevCon CDs, or anything about it.

Applications / XFree86-OS/2
« on: March 13, 2019, 10:48:39 pm »
Hi

One of my frustrations is that I was never able to run the X11 GUI from XFree86-OS/2.
 
Is it possible to run it under ArcaOS today inside a Virtual Machine? Or is it require some specific hardware?
I want to give it try, nothing specific, I want to try some software that was ported to it as a curiosity.

About: [Arca Noae] Arca Noae progress report: ArcaOS on UEFI-only hardware

Hi

Very good news. It is great to see finally (referring to the old Mensys/XEU days) some progress for the present of the platform. Even that UEFI support is still on very early stage, it is good to see that something has started, I'm looking forward to test that on the future.

I'm on the "Arca Noae Test" mailing list and even that I don't contribute as much as I would like to, I really see that things are moving to release Arca Noae 5.0.4 and the progress for the localization releases for ArcaOS 5.1. There is a lot of details on each update and a lot of movement there.

As you can see, today I'm very optimistic about the platform. Remember that ArcaOS 5.0.0 was released on May 15, 2017, and it had eclipsed any eComStation functionality in only one year. I really hope that after the ArcaOS 5.1 launch with local languages support, Arca Noae can focus more on the present of the platform (drivers, drivers, drivers) and also start thinking on the long term future (component replacement, API improvement, WPS improvements, growing the user base and more bold things).

Games / DOS Gaming and ArcaOS
« on: February 26, 2019, 06:52:00 pm »
Hi

I want to start now with some DOS games on ArcaOS. Which DOS games do you suggest to try/test on ArcaOS ?
This Internet Archive page can help with some ideas/insipiration.

I want to try both ways, the DOS VDM  and DOSBox, and see how everything goes.

From the other game thread I kind of understoodd that I'm limited with DOS VDM with the sound support until we have an updated DTA driver with DOS support. I haven't found any other way to get DOS sound with Uniaud yet.

Please let me know of any links to the old days when people used to post links of the suggested DOS VDM configuration for each game.

Suggestion, comments and feedback is always welcome. 

Regards

Games / OS/2 - ArcaOS - Native Games
« on: February 24, 2019, 03:46:29 am »
Hi

These are the SDL games I checked to have some issues:
- 2 Pong       0.6      SDL / SDD   GNU GPL      *** Require SDD
- Amoebax   0.2.1   SDL              GNU GPL      *** Old SDL12.DLL
- Barrage            SDL / SDD   GNU GPL      *** SDD dependency
- Dave Gnukem   0.56      SDL / SDD   GNU GPL             *** Requires SDD
- Fish Fillet   1.0.1      SDL              GNU GPL      *** No run
- Lopan      0.9      SDL / SSD           GNU GPL      *** Require SDD
- Marryampic2   0.6      SDL / SDD   GNU GPL      *** Requires SDD
- Primate Plunge      SDL              Freeware           *** OLD SDL12.DLL / Hangs
- QNetWalk   1.4      SDL /KSDL12.DLL GNU GPL   *** OLD SDL12.DLL
- Rocks n Diamonds   3.2.4 SDL              GNU GPL      *** Can not load Joystick

If someone wants to test these with the latest SDL and make those works without the SNAP driver, please let me know.
For the moment these ones looks like good candidates to be recompiled with the latest SDL.

Regards
