What currently works and how to get it to

Ray Davison
At some point I stopped using eCS for most on-line activity because I
couldn't get SM with Flash to work.

What is the best SM that is available right now, and how many pieces,
besides the basic eCs 2.1 install, does it require?

TY
Ray

So, it seems I need; LIBC, FontConfig, MozSupport, Innowin, Odin, and
some Environment considerations.  Oh, and I apparently need WPI, which I
never avoided but don't seem to have.  I think I have extracted WPI
files, but don't quite remember how, so that adds another chapter to the
game.

Then I can go get Flash.  That took me to Flash for eComstation, which
sent me to eComstation, where I got lost in a two page loop.

Is there some reason that the apps cannot be packaged with what they
need in their own directories?

And, Flash is a moving target.  In Win if I don't keep up with updates I
have sites telling me I cannot enter without the update.

Anyway, I decided to try SM 2.14.11.  I got a "Cannot start" error box.
It offers five possible reasons, four of which are kind of trivial.  I
have seen in the past where the missing DLL proved to be true.  I think
my DLLs are current and that box has not kept up with the possibilities.

Not sure Innowin is useful for anything any more, except the old
packaged Win32 versions of Acrobat.  Odin you only need for the latest
Win32 Flash wrapper.

The WarpIn tool is certainly the easiest way to install WPI packages;
there are alternatives, whether it be different packaging or different
extraction tools, but there's usually not a good reason to make things
more difficult.

Fortunately, Flash is dying.

Running from the command line usually gives you better info.

There's still ancient code that often blames xpcom no matter what. Dmik
has fixed this so I guess I should backport it.

I'm getting an 'xpcom missing' error with Firefox 17.05 beta 2. Can't find the
cause. Could this 'ancient code' be the problem? any hints?

You're probably missing one of the new requirements, mmap.dll,
pthread.dll, gcc446.dll, possibly more gccxxx.dll and the one that was
forgotten, stdcpp.dll.

And that is why someone who actually understands this thing needs to put
all the pieces in one bucket.

Guess when it becomes GA you simply need to run 'yum install FireFox'

https://github.com/bitwiseworks/mozilla-os2/releases/tag/FIREFOX_24_3_0esr_RELEASE_OS2_Beta 
says 'yum install pthread mmap libgcc473 libstdc++' And 'Please refer to
README.OS2 for more information about this release and for detailed
installation instructions.'

Btw. FF24 starts here without any problem. Honestly I didn't even read
the readme.os2 till now. Just unzipped it and as my installation is up
to date it simply runs.

Thanks Dave, I've checked those prereqs and have them as below. I've tried two
versions of stdcpp. Is there anyway of narrowing down the problem? I note that
gcc473 is smaller than gcc446. would this be expected?

3/11/11  5:14          8,574    342 a---  mmap.dll
5/10/12 21:13          4,052    345 a---  pthread.dll
16/12/11  4:01         25,115      0 a---  gcc446.dll
7/09/13 19:25         22,288    344 a---  gcc473.dll
11/01/12  7:34        362,797    366 a---  stdcpp.dll
13/12/11 18:52        362,610     38 a---  stdcpp362610.dll

There aren't any copies of these anywhere else in the disk.

You could try something like pmdll. I believe the most recent is on
Hobbes. You'll have to test all the DLLs.

I have pthr01.dll   │    7865│25/04/14│12:49p
and no pthread.dll on my LIBPATH.

stdcpp.dll   │  362799│25/07/13│ 5:31p
stdcpp6.dll  │  389637│04/02/14│11:07a

You won't need gcc473 or stdcpp6 until you test 24.3.0, it's possible
that one of the other DLLs needs an older gccxxx.dll

I'll see about zipping them up and putting them on Hobbes. I'll also try
to static link future builds if I remember.
