WarpIn bug

I've encountered a bug in WarpIn. While trying to install
the Doodle Screen Saver, I reached the stage where one can
select the packages to install. The install path for the
system binaries is shown as W:\OS2\APPS\DLL and is grayed
out, unable to be changed. Yes, W: is my boot drive (short
for Warp). Meanwhile, the install path for the home folder
is changeable, and I decided to change it to D:\UTIL\DOODLE.
Suddenly the install path for the system binaries has become
W:\OS2\APPS\D:\UTIL\DOODLELL, which is invalid, so WarpIn
complains and won't install the packages, telling me to
correct the errors first, which I can't do because the
install path is grayed out and unchangeable.

Obviously, the "D" in DLL was detected and replaced by my
chosen path, which happens to be on drive D.

So I'm stuck with the choice of either installing it in a
place where I don't want it, or not installing it at all.
I haven't found the Doodle Screen Saver in a non-WarpIn
version.

As an aside, I really don't like the layout at netlabs.org;
try finding WarpIn from the home page. I had to resort to
a Google search to find it, and yes, the WarpIn bug is
present in the latest version 1.0.19.

You could always extract files from a wpi package using WPIView -

Thanks, but no joy; it complains about needing VROBJ.DLL, which
doesn't exist on my system and wasn't included in the WPIView
package. Presumably some VX-REXX runtime DLL.

I hate packages that are incomplete and don't tell you where you
can find those necessary items.

Or directly with wic.exe that is distributed with WarpIN. It's only
RTFM or just type <path>\wic for its usage.

It's included in eCS.

That doesn't matter: Apparently you're lazy enough not to do a search
on Hobbes. Complaining about what other people have to do doesn't

Obviously? He is wrong, obviously.
Tholen obviously couldn't be bothered to file a bug report in the
bug tracker though. Not that I give a shit about him anyway...
obviously.

For what it's worth, the bug only applies if the contents of the
editable entryfield are deleted. If you highlight the existing text
and then type over it, it works as one expects.

It's horrid code which is never going to work properly in all cases.

I really don't like the layout at netlabs.org;
It suffered from a few redesigns, and Adrian's declining interest. It's
mostly abandoned now, with each (active) project doing its own Trac Wiki.

Is there a list of active projects somewhere so that one knows
what to look for, probably via a search engine like Google?

What the Trac Wiki lacks is a "Download" link, where one can
get their hands on the latest binaries. Like Odin32, for
example. Where are PE.EXE and PE2LX.EXE?

You could try http://svn.netlabs.org/ and ftp://ftp.netlabs.org/pub/
for starters.

A quick google search for 'netlabs newsletter' should give you an overview of
recent changes. The link at the wiki.netlabs.org pages called 'Recent changes'
or found via 'Special pages' get's you there too. Logging in with ftp and sort
by date is another option and a full list of projects under svn/trac is,
surprise, surprise, here http://svn.netlabs.org/ Additionally Adrian has added
two links for a google search on netlabs from the main page / software.

Of course an overview at the www start page as it was some time ago would be
easier. But for now I think we have to live with what we have.

I don't think you have a WarpIN bug. You have either a bug in the
Doodle Screen Saver package or a bug in your system.

Have you tried installing it to the default directories?
