DFSee TESTERS needed; Please verify new ABOUT information
May 28, 2018 by firstname.lastname@example.org
I have added quite a few bits and pieces of information to the DFSee 'about' dialog, to identify the platform better in problem solving scenarios.
Added new information per OS:
Windows: Show better version/release info, including 8.1 and 10 (with 'update edition' names) Show user and machine names
OS/2: Show 'distribution' info when found (ArcaOS, eComstation, plain IBM), show internal kernel version
macOS: Show both DARWIN kernel as macOS version, including marketing name Show logged on (sudo) user plus hostname and 32/64 bit executable usage
Linux: Show distribution name and info, when found (like in /etc/os-release or /etc/lsb-release)
Show logged on (sudo) user plus hostname
Please verify the information shown in the latest ABOUT dialog for your operating system(s)
and let me know if something wrong, or missing.
For any operating system not mentioned below, please reply to this message with the about information.
The easiest way is to include or attach a small logfile, like the 'about.log' that you can get with:
dfs -Q -w- -d- -l:about about
Where 'dfs' is the executable (dfsos2.exe, dfswin.exe or dfsee, depending on platform/OS)
as installed from the latest version 15.1 EXPERIMENTAL release from:
An example from my ArcaOS development system shows:
DFSee version 15.1 2018-05-27 (c) 1994-2018: Jan van Wijk

OS/2 Kernel : Internal revision: 14.200_SMP on drive D:
Operating system version already tested (by me):
- macOS 10.13.4 High Sierra (64 bit version)
- macOS 10.6.8 Snow Leopard (32-bit version)
- Windows-10 1709, Fall Creators update
- Windows-7 PRO, 32-bit
- Windows-XP, servicepack 1 and servicepack 3
- Linux Ubuntu 14.04
- Linux Suse Leap 42.1
- OS/2 ArcaOS 5.0
- OS/2 eComStation 2.2beta
- OS/2 eComStation 2.0
For the macOS users (if any :) I would be interested to know if it works well on
your version of macOS, it should install the 64-bit DFSee version on Sierra
and later (>= 10.12.0) and the 32-bit version before that. It should also correctly
recognize 256-color capability on 10.7 (Lion) and later versions of Terminal.
And, to make starting it easier after install, there is now a 'DFSee.app' that
you can add to your desktop or even better the Dock ...
Thanks in advance!
