1. Warp 3 - USB Keyboard issues
Reply to this topic with quote Modify your message
I am trying to get os/2 warp server 4 (with warp 3 os) up and running. I am installing it on a new Dell Optiplex GX620 (only usbports - no ps/2). Everything appears to be running great with the exception of after a while the keyboard buffer gets off by a few keystrokes. This is very annoying!! I tried to update the usb driver but is says it must be Warp 4. Is it possible to use usb with warp 3? Anyone have an Idea?

Thanks
Ryan

Hi,

To get the "latest" USB device drivers, you'll need to either have a Software Choice subscription, or eCS. However there are some older "free" drivers which IBM released that may work for you.

Go to:

http://www.os2warp.be/index2.php?name=usbdrvs

And download the "USB Basic Controller Support" - the latest "Free" driver.

Also further down on that page is the USB Keyboard driver. Grab the "free" driver too. (unless you have a SWC subscription, in which case grab the latest driver)

As I recall, in order for USB to work properly under Warp 3, you'll also need the latest fixpak - which for Warp Server 4 is Fixpak 43. The US english version can be found:

ftp://service.boulder.ibm.com/ps/products/os2/rsu/xr_w043

You may also need the Device Driver fixpak (but I'm not 100% sure if this is needed for USB stuff, because I believe the USB stuff was never incorporated into the DD fixpak), at:

ftp://service.boulder.ibm.com/ps/products/os2/rsu/xr_d002

Good luck!
