Re: Port request: KeePass

@Joeled

AmiSafe looks nice. Like gerograph, though, I would also like to have KeePass on Amiga. I use KeePass already on Windows and Android so I already have a password database. If AmiSafe is able to import a KeePass password database then that would work for me, too.

Glad to hear the "news" wasn't true. Good luck with the X1000!

(I think I need a password manager.)

Re: USB devices that work with OS4.1 Update 1-**Problems with Update 2 **

@328gts

The main reason I chose this drive over other ones when I went shopping was that it actually says "USB 1.1 compatible" on the box. Some others were emblazoned with "USB 3" but with no mention of USB 1.1, I thought they were too risky.

Also, I know that other LaCie USB drives work with AmigaOS.

I sure would like USB 2.0 to come.

I now have a LaCie 1TB external USB hard drive (it's only a "marketing terabyte"). I have formatted it with JXFS and it seems to work perfectly with the current version of AmigaOS. With USB 1.1, though, it took a full weekend to backup my system and I didn't have the patience to verify the backup (I use md5sum on everything).

My first Amiga was an A1000. That's the one that gives me the best nostalgic feelings.

Re: Is 3D difficult to achieve?
Just popping in

I remember there was a "Space Spuds" (or similar) 3D game that came with the X-Specs 3D, but how many people had these shutter glasses?

I also remember playing two 3D games with red/blue anaglyph glasses.

I don't know about it, but I think modern 3D will be a driver issue. With side-by-side videos, though, we'd just have to all go walleyed or get things like the PokeScope 3D viewer to view them.

I think it would be nice to have a .MPO file datatype, though, with a configuration program to automatically display the MPO file in our favourite 3D viewing method (crossed eye, parallel, red/blue anaglyh, red/cyan anaglyph, etc...)

@afxgroup

Qt has drivers for various databases, implemented as plugins that are subclasses of class QSqlDriver. Where I work, we have used only the MySQL, PostgresSQL, SQLite, and Oracle drivers, not the ODBC driver, but we have a project coming up that may require it.

There is some documentation about Qt's database drivers here:
http://doc.qt.nokia.com/4.6/sql-driver.html

I have a commercial Qt license at work.

Hi kas1e,

Quote:
It is enough for games/apps (in most cases) to have only that modules: QtCore , QtGui and QtOpenGL ? Or some dependences in some other libs are usually used ? By your experience with Qt ports over AmiCygnix, which modules they (port) use often ?


I cannot answer your question with respect to porting applications, but the Qt modules most used in applications written in the company where I work are:

QtCore,
QtGui,
QtNetwork,
QtSql

Recently we also used QtXml.

Our last version of Qt was 4.5.1 (commercial license) and I haven't seen if later versions of Qt have been reorganized.

These are closed-source programs and there is no plan to support AmigaOS, so this information is probably not very useful to you.

Re: Dialer/Internet slowdown & stall problem

No amount of babysitting fixes this particular problem. Once it starts, the delay just seems to get longer as I continue Internet activity.


I haven't observed anything like that, but I've got a different configuration and hardware from you. I have the old mini Sam440ep, a 28.8kbps modem actually configured for 28,800bps (no compression), and I'm not using XON/XOFF for flow control.

Versions:
Dialer 53.2
ppc440ep_serial.device 52.1
Roadshow 4.292


My current connection file looks like this (stuff blanked with xxx):

# PROGDIR:Connections/xxxxxxx.conn
# File generated by Dialer 53.2 (3.10.2009)
# On Saturday, 16-Jan-10 at 22:19:52
interface="PPP"
device="ppc440ep_serial.device"
speed=28800
init="AT&F1\r"
touchtone=no
volume=1
number="xxxxxxxxxx"
sendid=off
login="xxxxxxx"
password="xxxxxx"
provider="xxxxxx"



I've never looked into this, but maybe we can do something with RoadshowControl? This is what it tells me now:

bpf.bufsize = 4096
icmp.maskrepl = 0
icmp.processecho = 0
icmp.procesststamp = 0
ip.defttl = 64
ip.forwarding = 0
ip.sendredirects = 1
ip.subnetsarelocal = 0
tcp.do_rfc1323 = 1
tcp.do_timestamps = 0
tcp.do_win_scale = 0
tcp.mssdflt = 1460
tcp.recvspace = 65536
tcp.rttdflt = 3
tcp.sendspace = 32768
tcp.use_mssdflt_for_remote = 0
udp.cksum = 1
udp.recvspace = 41600
udp.sendspace = 9216

I might do some reading about rfc1323 for example, and see what happens when I turn that off.

@alfkil

Awesome! Even an AmiCygnix version is great, but a native version would be fantastic!

If I didn't have the slowest Internet connection in the world and have to be away from my Sam440 12 hours each day for work, I might be tempted to help.

I used Qt at work for several years.

@xenic

I'm at work so shouldn't even be reading this, let alone replying, but...

I have not noticed any new problem with the dialer window itself (it still "disappears" at random times but that's not new and it happens less frequently than before), nor any changes with OS4.1u2 relative to older versions, however...

I have a noisy phone line, and on the Sam440ep I'm using a 28.8kbps modem and I have it configured for hardware flow control even though I know that doesn't work.

I've had a problem similar to what you describe for a long time. I've had this same problem even on Amithlon running Genesis, with a faster modem using (working?) hardware flow control.

My connection has problems when using Linux on my Amithlon box, too, but it doesn't go into "slow motion" mode it just doesn't complete xfers sometimes and I have to hit "refresh" to load a page.

What I have happening is that the Internet connection stalls, usually some minutes after making a connection. I have found that I can babysit it and keep it going to complete xfers.

On Amithlon/Genesis and OS4.1/Roadshow I babysit the connection by keeping AWeb loaded on a page that has small images like smileys in a forum (sometimes I use this site for this purpose). When the connection stalls, I reload a small image. The act of starting a new xfer causes the connection to wake up temporarily.

The longer I am connected, the more screwed up it becomes. I may have to reload a smiley three or four times in a row to wake the connection up, depending on what the other applications were trying to do at the time.

It gives me the impression that something in the stack gets out of sequence somehow. I think maybe it doesn't handle lost packets very well. But considering that I have problems with such very different configurations, the problem may actually be at my ISP.

I am planning to start spending the $43/month soon to get cable Internet, unless I can find a provider with DSL who will let me try it with my crappy phone connection (my current ISP won't even offer DSL to me).

Try babysitting your connection like I do to see if it helps anything.

Anyway, there was also work done on transputers with Amiga. I remember an article about it in AmigoTimes magazine, probably issue 1.2 or 1.3. The Amiga Transputer boards were running HeliOS and I don't know if they were ever released as a commercial product (anyone know?).

Thanks for the help, guys!

After screwing around last night with it, I found out that there were two files in Devs:NetInterfaces that pointed to the same port. Anyway, I deleted all but on file in there, then shut off the computer for the night.

When I turned on the computer this afternoon it took a long time to boot (zzzz...) and I checked using ShowNetStatus and it looked like it had tried to work. My router wasn't plugged in.

I plugged in the router and rebooted the Sam and the connection worked immediately. I am currently posting in here via dial-up and I am also playing with the router's setup pages.

Cool!

Now I want to see if I can get a connection to my new netbook going.

Autoscroll and windows resizing bugs
Just popping in
Just popping in


I'm using AmigaOS 4.1 Update 2, pretty close to a clean install, on a Sam440ep.

If I go into ScreenMode preferences, and set my screen size larger than the default size, and activate "Autoscroll", and then I resize a window by grabbing the resize gadget, and I drag it to the edge of the display so that the screen starts scrolling, then the mouse jumps around to quite random-seeming locations.

Resizing windows on autoscroll screens is OK if you don't trigger the scrolling by hitting the side of the display.

Moving windows on autoscroll screens is jumpy but it works OK.

Resizing windows on large non-autoscroll screens is OK.

If I scroll by grabbing the screen using the left-Amiga+LMB combination, I get flickering and what looks like a picture of some other area in memory (garbage) for a moment. I haven't noticed this effect when autoscrolling.

[SOLVED] AmigaOS 4.1/Sam440ep Network help needed
Just popping in
Just popping in


Hi,

I'm a complete noob with Amiga networking. I still use dial-up for my Internet connection and I've never had an Ethernet connection on an Amiga.

I am currently using AmigaOS 4.1 Update 2 on a Sam440ep.

I tried to make me first Ethernet connection tonight, with an old router that a friend gave me. I connected the network cable to the Ethernet port that is closest to the edge of the Sam (port 1 on the diagram in the Sam User Guide), and the other end of the cable to the router.

The router is an AOpen AOR-401M 4-Port 10/100Mbps Ethernet Broadband Router.

Anyway, I tried to do the connection wizard thing, with automatic configuration. I chose device 0. I get error messages (I have put '?' over the MAC address):

Fri Jun 18 22:39:32 2010 [error]: Interface "PPC440EP_ETH" configuration failed with station address = 00:50:C2:??:??:?? (5,10193, Bad address, Unknown SANA-II wire error 10193).

and

AddNetInterface: Could not add interface "PPC440EP_ETH" (Input/output error).


Any idea what is going on?


(When I plugged it into my Windows PC it recognized a network and I was able to login to the administration page of the router, so the cable and router seem to be good.)
