• Blue Wave Linux

    From Gonzalo Fernandez Ordas@2:250/4 to All on Sun Jul 22 14:31:52 2018
    People,

    is there any ported version of Blue Wave into Linux and/or Mac?

    Many thanks!

    MultiMail is the closest you can get to the actual Blue Wave reader. The reader was never an opensource project so there is no updating it unfortunately.

    MultiMail 0.51 was released in April of this year.

    As Alan said, MultiMail is the only way to go for Linux these days and I'd assume Mac also.

    I have successfully run Blue Wave using both DOSbox and DOSemu under Slackware 64 Linux 14.2 but most of the time it's faster to just use MultiMail since Qodem, my preferred terminal program under Linux, calls MM natively.

    I used to be a Blue Wave user, but that long long ago as you can imagine. (Nostalgia there, yeah)

    Will look at MultiMail then...

    I was a Blue Wave user too many, many years ago. It still works although the reply packets are y2k broken there are ways to fix that. You'd have to ask a BW user how they do that today.

    I already got it down and I am having a look.
    Now I need to figure out how to setup my Synchronet BBS serving the Fidonet mail as QWK packages and how to download it! as this is the offline reader, so I might need a few more things...

    and how do you download the echomails?

    You can download QWK packets from your own synchronet BBS, or most any BBS you like. On a synchronet BBS hit Q from the main menu to go to the QWK menu. Select the areas you want to download (and move pointers back if you want to download messages you have already seen, if you want). Download your packet and read and reply from BW or MultiMail and when your done log onto the BBS, hit Q for the QWK menu and upload your reply packet, QWKID.rep.

    The process is much the same (but may be slightly different) from any BBS that supports QWK.

    I was a Blue Wave user too many, many years ago. It still works
    although the reply packets are y2k broken there are ways to fix that. You'd have to ask a BW
    user how they do that today.

    I have been a Blue Wave user since the mid 90's, and still use it
    today.

    There are two ways of fixing the Y2K problem with the QWK reader and REP packets. A link containing both methods, and a lot of other BW related
    programs is: http://www.wpusa.dynip.com/files/BLUEWAVE/

    My recommendation for anyone who wants to use BW is the first fix on
    that page.

    I don't know if BW can run under Linux, but there is an OS/2 version.
    Since my current computer is a 64 bit computer, I cannot run it in
    native form -- but choose to run it in a virtual window with Win XP.

    I have heard good words about Multimail.

    You've got to run it under DOSbox or DOSemu but it does work very nicely, much like the DOS-based BBS doors I've written.

    I have heard good words about Multimail.

    It's not a very actively developed program these days but it's mature and it's very good for what it does. The author recently did a big update of MM, especially making an "official" Win64 build and cleaning up and modernizing the codebase a bit.

    If someone could make a Chrome OS app out of it, I'd be in heaven so then I could run it on my Chromebook. :)

    That would be a dream for me as well - I have a Chromebook here that is

    DPMI is no longer supported (in a 64 bit OS, I think) so I have to remember
    how to disable DPMI with pkunzip or maybe switch to unzip.

    I don't know if BW can run under Linux, but there is an OS/2 version. Since my current computer is a 64 bit computer, I cannot run it in
    native form -- but choose to run it in a virtual window with Win XP.

    I use it in dosbox on my 64bit windows and linux computer. So that
    will work as well!

    There is another dos emulator that I like better than DosBox. It is
    called vDOS, a link to info and download page is: https://www.vdos.info/download.html

    DosBox was mainly written to support games. The program vDos has some
    other features which I find nice, e.g. you can configure it to print
    something.

    It is worth mentioning that both DOSBOX and vDOS have BlueWave
    exhibiting two problems that it does not show when run in a 32-bit
    environment.

    One of these is minor and cannto (to my knowledge) be fixed. That is
    that when BW is run in its usual environment, it does not alter the
    date/time stamp of the QWK file. In fact it uses that fact to help
    display the files and their read/personal info in the listing of QWK
    files. When run with either DOS emulator, the date/time stamp is
    changed -- presumably because they detect that the file has been touched
    and changed.

    The second one is more serious, but a fix has been issued. There is a
    fairly long discussion on the forum Vogons about this. The solution is
    given in the post as quoted below, but you will probably need to go to
    that forum to get the link to the fix.

    [quote]
    The problem was easier to find with the DOSBox debugger than I thought
    it would be. Blue Wave appears to have a flaw where it uses the DOS
    "FindFirst" function INT 21/4E with a malformed filespec. Using the
    example mail packet the program comes with, it tries to find "C:\BWAVE\WORK\WELCOME.XTI*.BAK". MSDOS 5/6 and the WinXP NTVDM are
    unforgiving and return error code 3 (invalid path), leading to a benign
    result. DOSBox is more lenient, and finds the "WELCOME.XTI" work packet,
    which the program proceeds to delete. Maybe the intent was to clean out
    .BAK files in the work folder; but that seems redundant because the
    program deletes *.* from there when it finishes recompressing the
    packet. It's probably just a mistake that wasn't noticed until DOSBox
    shed some light on it.

    I adapted a little interrupt watchdog program to work around this
    situation in DOSBox. It monitors the FindFirst function, and if it sees
    a filespec with an extension of XTI* it will override with an error code
    3 result. Run BWAVEFIX.COM from the BWAVE folder; it runs BWAVE.EXE as a
    child program. The child exit errorlevel is reflected through the
    parent, and the parent command line is given to the child, so the
    program is friendly to batch files. Assembler source code is included in
    the attached archive.

    I really do not know. I am using the first fix, which is a replacement
    for the exe file. I don't even know if the OS/2 version had the Y2K
    problem, nor whether or not the second fix (my bwrepfix, which is really
    a bandaid) would work if it did. What that fix does is to put a batch
    file around the Bwave program to intercept the call to packing up the
    REP file and repair the defective file.

    I think it was working when Slackware 14.2 was released. It stopped working here recently because something (I don't remember the details) was removed from the kernel, for security reasons.

    There is a command line switch for pkunzip to disable DPMI, "-)" I think but haven't tried that yet.

    Flavio,

    and how do you download the echomails?
    If you re using Synchronet , can you give me a few tips about how to setup all this up??

    I am reading and looking around but not much progress at the moment.
    What do you mean? Downloading echomail for me or for my system?

    I am currently using multimail, all well so far.
    By the way: I have wrapped Bluewave to work on MacOsX and it does the job all right. I have been using the very latest paatched version for the 2K effect. tested a few QWK packages from synchronet, and back to the flavour of the old days....

    I am currently sharing that version as follows on my BBS (unicyber.co.uk:2223):

    BW_mac .zip A 3.1M Blue Wave Mail
    (with expanded README.TXT)
    Not supported by authors
    Use at your own risk!
    THis is a Draft-Trial for MacOsX

    Many thanks Flavio.

    Yeah, I am also using that one, but I did that workaround. A bit of a nostalgia thing and also anybody who is interested can have some fun.. --->RainManHood<---

    This is really awesome! I tried to sign in into your system a few months ago,
    but I was unable to, it said my account could not be created.

    I will give it a try again later on.

    Hello Gonzalo.

    I tried to connect to your system, but it says that my name is either duplicate
    or invalid.

    Could you check on your database and delete my account, if it exists?
