updating EMX runtime

How does one go about updating the EMX runtime libraries? It would
appear that the old ones don't get over written when I unzip them.

EMXUPD.EXE

DLLs will not become active until the old versions are unloaded from
memory, of course...

Hope this helps,

I tried it , but no difference. Still says EMX : revision = 60 not 61.

I noticed on hobbes that there is emxrt.zip and also a cumlative
patch. Do I need both?

Thanks.

As I said, the new DLLs are not active until later. In rare cases
(e.g., an EMX program is used by a device driver, as with ISOFS) one
needs *very* severe actions (killing the process, thus rendering the
device driver unusable) to update without reboot. Usually closing all
EMX programs is not hard (do not forget emxload -u, use pstat to veryfy).

[Of couse, it may be that the DLLs are not where you expect them - but
then they would not be locked. Use options to EMXREV to be sure.]


IIRC, only if you want to update the develpment environment as well;
but check the dates.

Hope this helps,
Ilya

This gets a bit muddled...

EMXRT.ZIP is already up to the latest level, 0.9dfix4.

All other EMX zipfiles are not at this level, you have to install them and
_then_ apply the EMXFIX04 update over top.

The WarpIN archives of the complete EMX dev environment are, IIRC, only at
the 0.9dfix3 level. However, there is a separate WarpIN archive of just
the runtime files which is already at the fix04 level.

In a nutshell, if you install just the EMX runtime files (either through
ZIP or WarpIN), then it's already at the current level.

However, if you install the full EMX development environment (either
through ZIP or WarpIN), then you have to apply EMXFIX04 over top, in
order to get to the latest level.


I created a standalone install package of the entire EMX environment
(selectable components) which is pre-patched to fix04, but I've never
uploaded it anywhere. Mainly because I haven't been able to test my
install routine as exhaustively as I'd like. I should get around to it.

They were in a different location. Thanks, all is well now.
