We scan the Web, Usenet and the OS/2 mailing lists looking for these gems. Have you run across an interesting bit of information about OS/2 or eComStation recently? Please share it with all our readers. Send your tips to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are interested in joining a particular OS/2 mailing list, check out the VOICE Mailing List page for subscribing instructions for a large variety of existing lists - http://www.os2voice.org/mailinglists.html.
Editor's note: these tips are from OS/2-eComStation users and in some cases can not be verified by myself. Please heed this as a warning that if you are not sure about something, don't do it.
Oh, that **** o:\ thing! The O: drive is indeed hardcoded, but it is possible to overwrite it with the PERLLIB_PREFIX environment variable. Only the syntax of that one is quite exotic and poorly documented. My config.sys says:Which means: "translate o:/Perl/lib to f:\Perl\lib"
No normal mind would think of that. Last time I cleaned up my config.sys, I thought (assuming all minds involved are normal): "I have no o:\ so I can remove that path". After that I spend hours on getting perl started again....
Come on. Try harder ;-) Just go to the very bottom of the screen (i.e. until the mouse pointer doesn't move anymore) and right click. This MUST work, otherwise there's really a strange bug in you XWPS installation.

The "mime.types" file can have multiple extension per mime type: example: video/mpeg mpg mpeg mp2 mpe m2v m1v vbs mpegv The file "mailcap" does the association of mime type to application: example: video/x-mpeg2;D:\MA\warpvision\video2.exeMikus Grinbergs
Be sure that the mime type you fix is the same mime type that you assign to applications, as the two above are not the same mime type. This would be the mailcap for the mime type above: video/mpeg;D:\MA\warpvision\video2.exe
Not counting plugins (which have their own rules), the specification of "helper applications" (to which a downloaded file is passed by the browser) is IMHO __much__ easier via the 'mime.types'/'mailcap' facility in Mozilla/2 than via the "helper applications" panel in Mozilla's preferences.
All you have to do is add two lines to prefs.js, for instance: user_pref("helpers.global_mailcap_file", "E:\\etc\\mailcap"); user_pref("helpers.global_mime_types_file", "E:\\etc\\mime.types"); and then put lines such as William indicated into those two files.

Dell used to have own drivers for the PERC models, but last time I checked the ftp server only had archives up to PERC 2 (probably shipped with hardware, no update yet?). Compaq might have a newer archive now.
You may want to have a look for renpic21.zip on hobbes.
This smart little program reads the EXIF information, renames the file to its date and time and writes the EXIF info to extended attributes. It says, it works for Olympus cameras, I am using it with my Canon Ixus 300 and it works great!
a) You are using any system based on LVM, and have made sure that LVM has updated the Master Boot Record
b) You have Warp 4 (non LVM) and have upgraded to FP13 or later, updated the MBR and boot sector (latter with SYSINSTX), then moved the partition above that line.
In both these cases, the limit is about 1TB.
No.....the OS/2 MBR determines once and for all whether the INT 13H extensions (necessary to boot above 8GB) are present in the BIOS. Then it leaves a marker in memory. Boot Manager, and the individual volume boot records for OS/2, look for this marker to see how to proceed. Thus, if you don't use the OS/2 MBR the boot sequence for OS/2 won't work correctly. Other systems probably re-determine it at each stage.
You can just prefix the line with the > character and it'll turn off wrap for that line.
