Hardware / Re: USB hardrive power-down and JFS crashes
« on: 2010.11.19, 02:05:39 »
Have you tried this with other drives that are using other filesystems? FAT32, FAT16, HPFS?

I was trying to get them to Open Source it or Update the OS/2 version, but apparently they gauged interest here or on a newsgroup and we did not respond positively so they have officially dropped the OS/2 version.

For us - we asked for interest, a while ago - less than 50 people. This is nothing we can care for, because of we have to make our living from Papyrus ...

However, I think that you and your team should look at the ODT and OOXML specifications for support in your product as both standards are becoming widely used in the Linux/Mac/Win world, and even in our little OS/2 corner.

We would have loved to support the great OS/2 System much longer ...  So, please blame IBM for their stupid decisions, not us :-) schrieb:

I've been rather frustrated as well. I've had no luck installing it on my new desktop, and after collecting a ton of info and driver sources, no help getting it to function usefully on my netbook.

I will not be purchasing SSS again.

That is fantastic! This opens up the door for a ton of Linux and windows software (running with Odin/WINE) to work, as well as many academic applications.

Now for cards supported by SNAP (which has hardware accel, correct), this OpenGL implementation you're writing would interface with that?

Nice. Forgive the possibly noob question, but what will the end result of this be?

A OpenGL software renderer, or possibly an OpenGL hardware renderer?

Did Scitech ever open-source any part of the DisplayDoctor drivers like they said they were going to?

Pretty sure that had AGP acceleration support.

I am very interested in seeing OS/2 support OpenGL as that opens up a ton of options for games, multimedia software, and important academic software.

1) Odin Synched fully to WINE/ReactOS sources
2) OpenGL ES
3) Mono Framework

Ah, okay. Good to know.

I would, but I don't program :P

Good to hear Silvan :)

Any thoughts about the things I listed here?,com_smf/Itemid,63/topic,2595.msg16904/#msg16904

Is it possible you have a bad burn? Redownload the ISO, hash check it, and re-burn at lowest speed possible with Verify Written Data after the burn just in case.

I believe 250gb should be fine if you're using the latest LVM and DANIs drivers.
What version of eCS are you rocking right now?

What is the disk drive size?

Sounds like you need the magic of DFSEE to set/reset the LVM information on the drive.

Applications / Re: An update of PSI in the works?

Yeah, I asked Marty. He is currently in the process of moving and setting things up again, plus his OS/2 box HDD is having more disk errors, so.. It may be a bit before he comes back online.

Anyway, the latest Beta of DrMessage I have does NOT have the Facebook plugin included. My mistake on saying it did support it. However, since Pidgin does support it, we will likely have this functionality as well. I've asked Marty to include it in the next build.

Robert, have you tried MrMessage? It is built off of libpurple/Pidgin sources which do support Facebook chat so you're probably best off trying it.
