Hi,

I an building a new (newer) system with an assortment of OS's Multiboot (OS2 V452, eCS 1.2 or 2.0, Linux RH EL3/4, and Win98.)
I am trying to make a list of current updates available/needed for Warp CP2. IBM's updates have slowed (but not stopped) so I expect this list to be fairly stable.
Here is what I have so far... My questions at the end.

cs_144_12-15-2005 (service program)
XR_C005 (Base system CSD)
XR_D003 (System driver updates)
xr_f001 (only for pentium > 512Meg memory?)
WR08708 (MPTS Network support and NIC updates)
UN02334 (TCPIP_43_CSD )
os2ldr_1-13-2006 (loader updates)
os2spdst_12-15-2005 (Power and seedstep)
idedasd_1-13-2006 (IDE support for larger drives)
udf201 12-14-04 (CD/DVD Filesystem)
LVM 6-13-2006 (Logical Volume manager)
JFS 6-13-2006 (Journaled File System)
slpr_12-13-2004 (Streaming printer LPR update)
irda_12-15-2005 (IrDA Stack updates)

usbbasic_1-13-2006 (USB Base support)
usbmsd_1-13-2006 (USB Mass Storage)
usbser_1-13-2006 (USB Serial)
usbkeybd_1-13-2006 (USB Keyboard)
usbmouse_1-13-2006 (USB Mouse)
usbprint_1-13-2006 (USB Printer)

OS2_Browser_205 (WEB Browser V2.05)
snapse218 (Snap Graphics)
smouse_12-15-2005 (New mouse support for scroll mice etc)
Java_131_SR9 (Latest update to Java 1.31 from IBM)

Optional replacements I plan to use:
DANIS506
DaniATAPI
AMOUSE 2.7 05-21-2006
Snap Graphics full registered version (about $20)
Mozilla OS2 build V??

This list does not include the optional support for usb ethernet and other misc support
or other "system" software like RSJ or cdrecord etc.

Are there any other updates I missed? IBM Peer or network updates? Some that are not needed?

Where are the latest kernels? (I am using an AMD XP Processor)

Thank you,
Bart

Hi Bart

well, seems you want to build your own Convenience Pack 3

The list seems very current with me.

if I dont get it wrong you are missing only an apar that was released and I think its only available for eCs customers. Its the APAR pj31116.

And I'm not sure if xr_f001 is necesary since the APARS list of Fixpack 5 cover them.

Seems that that IP08608 is missing on your list.

It contains this APARS:
IC31052 IC31860 IC32249 IC32476 IC32540 IC32543 IC32543 IC32641, IC32916 IC35115 IC35115 IC35273 IC35275 PJ29408

I havent found this APARS included in any other fixpack.
Please correct me if I'm wrong.

I'm not sure what kernel level that FP5 brings MCP2 up to, however kernels can be downloaded from:

http://www.os2site.com/sw/upgrades/kernel/index.html

Generally people have had the best luck with builds 14.103a or 14.104a

Thanks for the input.

I missed the IP08608. The title implied it was just for the server version but reading on it does seem to include CP2.

I also downloaded the kernel files and I have put them on my todo list.

More when I get time.

Thanks,
Bart
