 there's nothing like "daily snapshots for OS/2", unfortunately. OS/2 snapshots are being created on "as needed + as time permits" basis. The problem is we still don't have an OS/2 machine with a permanent Internet connection. I only have a very slow (24 kbit usually :-( ) dial-up connection, so creating snapshots is somewhat complicated for me. Charlie/INQ created/uploaded several snapshots before, but I didn't get an e-mail from him for several months now. Any other volunteer?

 You definitely don't need to grab all sources, nor compile the whole compiler, if the only thing you need is an updated/corrected sysutils version. At maximum, you'd need to recompile the RTL, but even this isn't needed in your case - you can get the individual file plus all the includes from CVS (or using the WWW CVS interface on our pages, if you don't have the CVS client installed - it works without problems on OS/2). In addition, you might want to get FCL sources and recompile these as well if you use FCL in your sources, because FCL depends on sysutils.
