I had a little spare time and, lucky me; I get an email about patches to PMVNC. Eugene ported this years ago and all I did was add a couple fixes – I hate the POS. But Dmitry sent the patches, so I’ll pull it up and see what is what. Hell, maybe I should put the fixes in that GG has been pissing about for a year…
> 1. After an upgrade to the SMP computer I have many problems with the image of the remote desktop. As I understand, this is thread related problem. Two PMVNC thread try to access to the hpsBitmap simultaneously. I have serialized access via mutex in rect32.c, rect4.c and rect8.c modules. Now all works well.
I never saw this on my SMP systems but sounds good.
> 2. During testing, if I have used “Tiny Color” and “Gray Scale” modes, I have received SYS3175 crash in PMMERGE.DLL. I have replaced in rect4.c:
pbmiBitmap = malloc(16 + sizeof(RGB2) * 16) ;
pbmiBitmap = malloc(16 + sizeof(RGB2) * 256) ;
And now this works well also.
Never did this either… again sounds good.

Hmmm…. Ok. I guess I should fix and try to use wrc rather than rc just to find if it works.
We at ERACC installed FreeDOS and eComStation for the end-user. We offered to install the Linux as well but the end-user wanted to install the openSuSE 10.3 Linux himself. There is space set aside on the 147GB SCSI hard drive for him to install a /boot near the start of the drive and the rest of openSuSE 10.3 after the eComStation partitions.

I uploaded a fixed and working version of rexxutil.dll to hobbes.
Here’s a free svn hosting site with trac, it looks like they give you 500 megs free:
A real good first look at Virtual Box on eCS-OS/2, Openoffice WPS integration, and SFTP plugin for NetDrive/2 by Andreas Ludwig (link).
Recovering from a damn mess trying ACPI 2.21 on the laptop…
Funny – from OS/2 World or old page
Paul’s page has a new look
kLIBC version 0.6.2 and GCC 3.3.5 CSD2 released
Ok, there were some problems with the perl build, but Paul has a new build that uses Knut’s pathrewrite package and it seems to work well. The dirty details here.
Finally had the need to use Perl standalone so I setup Paul Smedley’s GCC port. Then I set up a script to just initialize the perl stuff:
I unzip’d the archive to my D drive and I have sh.exe (ash.exe renamed to sh.exe) in d:moztools.

Now to test it…..
SciTech is out of business which is not good, but I did get ECS 2.0 Beta 2 installed on my SMP system with working ACPI.
Finally remembered to upload PMVNC 1.03 to hobbes.

The best for last, Seamonkey and Open Office 2 Beta2:
Got gbmdlg.dll hooked in to the bitmap import menu.
Someone requested that I add an automatic rotate option to syslogd.
So what does the eComstation desktop look like? Here is mine:
