SCOUG OS/2 For You - April 1999


 Dear Mr. Know-It-All 

Mr. Know-It-All has the answers to even the really tough questions.


Q.  Dear Mr. Know-It-All,

My friend gave me an AVI movie and Warp can't play it. It's IV41 format. What can I do?

A.  The IV41 format is owned by Intel and there are no native Warp codecs. Warp's WinOS/2 comes with an older version of MS's Video for Windows which does not support IV41. However, Intel distributes a version of Video for Windows which can play IV41's under WinOS/2 Go to:

http://developer.intel.com/ial/indeo/video/archive.htm

and click the Indeo Video 4.1 and Indeo Video 3.2 link to download ivi16.exe. This is a self-extracting zip file. Unzip it in a temporary directory and run setup.exe in a full-screen WinOS/2 session. This will add the IV41 codec along with updated codecs for IV31, IV32 and YVU9.

Q.  Dear Mr. Know-It-All,

I've got the Netware Client installed on my laptop so I can access the network at work. If I boot the system at home, it takes a long time for the desktop to appear.

A.  When you boot Warp, the Netware client is searching for a server. It eventually times out and gives up, but, as you noticed, it takes a while. The timeouts and retry counts can be adjusted in NET.CFG but there is a simpler method. Add:

nwstop

to startup.cmd. This will shut down the Netware Requestor and bypass the delay. When you want to access the network, issue the command:

nwstart

from the command line. If you prefer, create a desktop object to invoke nwstart.

Curious or in doubt, you can ask Mr. Know-It-All
OS/2 is his specialty and sharing solutions is his passion
