client programs for HTTP

This strikes me as a bit weird. This isn't the first time I've launched YAM on my X5000, but it's the first time that I have got the "expired" message.

But when I try to "Visit homepage" for a new release, I only get
___________________________________________________________________________________
launch-handler 53.38

Error
There were no client programs found to handle the protocol. "HTTP"
___________________________________________________________________________________

Does anyone know off-hand what I need to do to fix this?

@kilaueabart

You need to use URL prefs to assign a browser for the HTTP calls...

Yes they call it a web browser.

There should already be some defaults in there. Usually using APPDIR: as a reference point. I wonder if there is a bug there with no clients listed. Do default settings come up in URL Prefs?

URL Prefs looks so familiar that I thought I must have set it up myself, but then I realized the last time I did that was after my X1000 died and I had to revive my old SAM460ex. I haven't had the X5000 that long. And I probably wouldn't have bothered with Aweb.

Anyway, the easy solution was to type http://nightly.yam.ch/ into the Odyssey address bar. Still strange, though. I've always just clicked "Visit homepage" in the "YAM Developer Version Expired!" alert

You might want to check that Odyssey is listed in the URL Prefs list. And try loading the other browsers in to make sure they are in the app cache. It also has a debug mode that may shed some light on the problem.

Some default settings:
Quote:

INSTALLATION:
To check if this is running correctly, (after installing the files),
simply perform the test proceedure below, in a shell.

The default intial configuration uses the new DOS APPDIR: device to locate
the client programs automatically.

The web page test is configured for OWB, AWEB and/or IBROWSE.
The mailer test is configured to use YAM.

It turns out that somehow my "easy solution" ended up replacing YAM/.config with an undone configuration file! At first it didn't even have all the options my old one did.

I was a little surprised to see I didn't have IBrowse. It's been on all my Amigas since it first came into being. I used Extras Install, and have it now. Another one I've normally had and don't see now: NetSurf.

I added Odyssey to URL Prefs, made it look like IBrowse rather than OWB. I won't know if it did any good until the next time the development version of YAM expires

Well that's strange! Entering the URL into Odyssey shouldn't have changed the YAM internal config.

You could test it by hand. URL Prefs has a Test button. But it needs a URL so not set up the best. You'd think it open up an OS4 help site.

No, it wasn't URL in Odyssey that messed up the config file, it was apparently opening the update of YAM. Still weird, though.
