I have created a bug report here to help Bitwise document or solve the problem.

It crashes here with Firefox 31, 38 and 45. I got a little stability with the latest SeaMonkey and Bing or Google in hybrid mode. Once I switched to satellite, it crashes before I can get to the control to switch it back.

Applications / Re: How to fit ArcaOS 5.0.1 ISO into a CD
« on: September 22, 2017, 10:18:10 pm »
I tried to do this for a high value industrial opportunity, but I could not get it to run in time. I got decent help from Arca Noae, but RPM/YUM is a significant obstacle. We could use some utilities to automatically trim repositories.

The old Microsoft/IBM installer is a bit picky, too. It's amazing how good the ArcaOS installer is considering that's still being used.

Applications / Firefox crashes on maps
« on: September 20, 2017, 08:43:49 pm »
I'm seeing a pattern with Firefox 45.5.0 beta 8 where it crashes when the mouse hovers over a map. There is no .TRP file, although there is a beep.

It does not seem to matter if the map is Google or Bing.
A new profile brought relief, but on the second try, it crashed also.
I have one other user that I know that sees the same crash displaying a map.

Does anyone else see this behavior?
Is there anything else I could submit in a bug report other than a URL?

Setup & Installation / Re: Lenovo ThinkCentre M93 Tiny

I haven't tried yet. eCS 2.2 b2 runs on it, too, if updated with AN Drivers and Software.


Any idea which drivers and software? I may already have the required AN drivers.

I'd guess USB and ACPI. AHCI also needed because the one in eCS isn't good. Once ArcaOS is on, I can just restore images from backups.

I also have a M92p tiny, and that is much better -- USB can be set to 2.0 in BIOS. This will all be moot if we get USB 3.0 drivers.

I have ArcaOS 5.0.1 (private beta) running on Lenovo M93p tiny.

It is hard to boot the installation disk. I succeeded by mounting the USB DVD drive on the yellow front port.

Many thanks. I take it that the release version won't build. If not how would I get a copy of this version?

I only used 5.0.1 because I needed to test it a little bit.

By the way, Display Port worked with Panorama on the M93p Tiny, but offers a limited set of resolutions. 1920 x 1200 x 24 bit did work.

You need to visit http://ohlandl.ipv7.net/ (9595 - Ardent Tool of Capitalism)

Post if you get ArcaOS running on it.

Yes, setting layout.frame_rate to 0 works here, too.

Utilities / Re: problems with sh.exe
« on: June 13, 2017, 02:17:55 am »
I'm seeing sh as the reason I can't build PMMail anymore. This is GCC 335, and I suppose I could try to adapt the makefile.  sh never seems to understand the backslash. I don't know how g++ is even finding sh.

If you have the source code for a battery program, you can modify it to use ACPI under OS/2. The developer's toolkit for ACPI is available here:

There are a lot of unlikely stories about the end of OS/2 in this thread. Why not let the guy who killed OS/2 tell his version?

When I run the new version 2.42.9, I get this added to POPUPLOG.OS2

Code: [Select]

H:\SEAMONKEY2\SEAMONKEY.EXE
XUL->LIBCX0._fread

OK, it works with an updated LIBCX0.DLL you supplied.

Ironically, that presentation used my eCS laptop running an Intel 5100 WiFi.
