Editor's note: these tips are from OS/2 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.
If you put "SET OBJD_AUTOTILENAV=1" in your
config.sys, you will be able to use two object navigators in one window and you
can move files between two directories.
It means that your registartion form has been damaged.
- go to /soffice50/config/ look for 'Oreg.sdw' and delete it.
- Run setup and choose 'Repair'.
You should have no problem anymore.
Yes, I use it to and it works very well. However, to be able to Shutdown from WarpCenter you have to drag the XShutdown object to WarpCenter. If you install XFolder I recommend that you run the REXX-script bootmgr.cmd than all your partitions in BootManager are written to XFolder, so you can directly choose which partition to boot too. If you do not run this script you have to write it manually, which can cause problem if you misspell. I can boot to my DOS, Warp 4 and Service partition without passing BootManager. I can not boot to my Linux partition, which I think is due to I have Lilo prior BootManager i.e when I reboot I first choose Bootmanager in Lilo and then in BootManager I make the second choice. With XFolder the shutdown of OS/2 gets much better than Win95.
BTW, bootmgr.cmd is written by Duane. Great script this. Also if anyone is interested
to translate XFolder to french for instance contact Ulrich Mueller.
RMVIEW, typically, will not report NIC's because they do not report to the Resource
Mananger. The MPTS applet OS2SNIFF works sometimes.
Editor's note: OS2SNIFF.EXE can be found in your x:\IBMINST directory. It only
displays the hardware information for network cards
When you say "...too large for the clipboard", am I to assume that
you highlighted the text in one file, and were not able to do a Cntl-Ins and then
If so, there are two other EPM options.
One, make sure you have "Ring enabled" set under Options/Preferences.
Open both files in EPM. If you want to copy from File_A to File_B, highlight the
section in File_A like before; go to the first line, hit Alt-l, do a Cntrl-Home(or
End) and hit Alt-l again. Now go to File_B. You can do that by either hitting F11,
F12, or click on the clockwise or counter-clockwise icons at the upper right hand
corner. Move the cursor to the line in File_B below which you'd like to see the
text from File_A appear. Hit Alt-C, and it should be copied.
Or, open File_B. Move the cursor to the place you want File_A inserted. Then
click on File/Import text file...and you should be ok.
If you've tried both of these and still get the clipboard error, you can try
the copy command:
copy file_a + file_b file_c
Do a HELP COPY command for more details.
Or, if you want to insert file_b after file_a, you can try:
type file_b >> file_a
If none of these don't work, it's time to start banging your head against the
This is a known problem (feature?) of tcpip 4.1 (and 4.2). At least I suppose
what you are describing is the 'W3 routes' bug. Tcpip 4.1(2) adds permanent non-expiring
routes to each and every external host you ever tried to reach. On a heavy network-active
server this will soon lead to routing table overflow.
Add netmask of 255.255.255.0 to your default route statement in C:\MPTN\BIN\SETUP.CMD.
Of course, netmask is not needed in default route, but adding it prevents permanent
external routes to be added to routing table. Should look like this:
route add -default xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx -netmask 255.255.255.0
Flush routing tables periodically (you have mentioned this method). You can
use grep/sh, perl or REXX script to look for 'W3' flags and remove only external
routes marked with it.
You all know that there are several WAD files out there waiting to be played?
To use these use the parameter -file
HexOS2.exe -file xxx.wad
From David Eckard on the NS4OS2 mail list:From Ken Yuill on the same list about the same Update Bookmark function:
I didn't know what the Update Bookmarks function was supposed to do, so I clicked on it. It checks your bookmarks to see if they still exist. It changes the Icon in the bookmark list to have a question mark on it. cool, especially since my list often get out of date.
Yes, it's a real nice feature, especially if you've imported old Navigator bookmarks.Next we have some tips on sorting Bookmarks from NS4OS2 list:
Hint: Select "Disable Cookies" in Preferences->Advanced or you'll be doing a lot of clicking.
First from David Eckard:
left click on bookmarksFinally Mike Kaply chimed in on sorting bookmarks as well:
left click on edit
highlight what you want to sort
if you want to sort a folder for example highlight that
if you want to sort a selection, you have to hold down the control key
while selecting click on view
click on one of
By Created On

At this point, the sort assending and sort descending should ungrey.
clock on sort selected.
This assumes that you want to sort selections rather than the whole list.
Sort by Name is a visual sort, it does not actually resort the file itself. If you want to change it back, select Sort by name again and it turns off.
If you want to sort some bookmarks, select them (they must be clustered) or select a folder and select "Sort Selected Bookmarks"
This is the only options that genuinely sorts bookmarks on disk.
