• Hpt os2

    From Rick Smith@1:105/10.1 to All on Saturday, February 20, 2021 21:17:42
    Greetings All!

    Like Michael I am also trying to get this to work on arca.. We have got it to build, run without error ie hpt toss pack scan all run without error. However hpt toss does not toss the inb packs ie .sa0 for today they just remain there, and no errors given. In fact the toss output looks normal it just isnt tossing any packets. Is there anyone here actually running hpt on os2 where we could compare setups...?

    Try to remove "qq" to see what unzip actually does. And I dont see any reason for "L" in OS/2.

    I made mine like this it did not change anything the pkts still remain in inb..
    no errors and hpt toss with run completely clean of errors, it just shows 0 messages tossed. Could it be in the build? I have to admit this was my first attempt at building it os2. here are the exe's that I produced maybe I am missing something?

    thats with a couple of fresh packets sitting in inb?

    So I am not sure what to try, I have built this many times in linux of course without issue.. Not sure where to turn next, I did notice yours is hpt-emx while ours is hpt-wc which I am we built -wc because -emx didnt work correctly with .jam?

    What if you manually unzip the arcmail bundles?

    Are you sure they are zips? :)

    This is the order I built

    Seems ok, however I don't have watcom installed (yet).

    I can test your watcom exes if you want, just send them to 2:221/360.

    These got me the closest yet... it essentially works with the some path tweaking, however the jam is still a little screwy which I just heard from andrew was just updated a couple hours ago.. Who is building these pre-builts? Will that person build a new set with the updated fix for jam? Because I think that will do it...

    Glad to hear, I have it just about working except the jam is a little off with headers missing and such, maybe someone will make updated prebuilts with this fix that would be great...
