General Discussion / Re: Trying to get the forums back.

To paraphrase Vladimir Ilich Ulianov: Backup, backup, backup). Thank you for your efforts in keeping this forum running and all the other stuff you do for the OS/2 incarnations. Would you be willing to help out with a funding drive to port the open source QT5.5 to OS/2?

Internet / SFTP client
« on: June 24, 2017, 12:58:39 am »

Is there an SFTP client available other than the command line one that comes with eCS ArcaOS? I searched and only found KSPC which needs open SSL knix.
The command line one does not accept any input on a password prompt here with a certain site. I don't know if that is SSH related, using Pauls SSH.
Might try installing the knix SSH and KSPC later.

Related to this, currently the SSH clients rpm is broken and there seems to be a problem fixing it. Paul, if you read this, perhaps you have a few pointers? Ticket

As Roderick mentioned to me, DVD RW often seem to be problematic, use a DVD R instead. Also might help to limit burn speed.

Just tried with FF38.8. filled in 123456 and page changes  to one that asks for a password...

Jan van Wijk, author of DFSee, is likely very well acquinted with the structures of several file systems. You might drop him a line.

Setup & Installation / Re: Arca OS and WiFi

I just read the ticket. The most important issue is in the first line that diver wrote: "You can't update rpm alone". He also wrote: "As a yum update should work of course", which is the CLI command.So, first you nseemed to have missed that first info, then diver failed to clearly indicate that what he wrote was the CLI command. It goes from bad to worse after that. Clearly miscommunication for which you are as much to to blame as the other party. My advice: apologise for the misunderstandings and possible overreactions  on your part and ask to reopen the ticket. See what happens from there.

I have tried to install ArcaOS to E: with selecting custom install and selecting F: to install the Unix environment to. On F: lives an existing yum/rpm/anpm environment. The installer hangs at the point it is trying to install the unix environment- The last log entry I see is:

Boot drive: E:
Destination: F:

I have tried moving etc\rpm, etc\yum and user\lib\rpm away from F: but it didn't make a difference. Has anyone else noticed similar behaviour?
Installing with unix environment to E: works as expected. I could simply edit the config,sys and delete the unix stuff from E: as a workaround but prefer to work out if this is a bug first (The installer hang itself IS a bug, it encounters a problem and does not report it).
As far as I'm aware it should be perfectly ok to share a unix env between two bootable partitions on a third partition because the rpm database is on the unixroot partition, so stuff should stay in sync.

Reported to Arca Noae as ticket

Hi Roderick
Can you post the log about cdrecord ? (You can open the and copy paste that to the forum).
sorry, I already had the DVD Tools uninstalled before I read your reply, so no log left. I might try another install and keep it in mind then.
From what I understand about ACPI from AN is that its not something that is official supported. (Also based on what David mentioned at Warpstocks).
Hm, not quite sure what this means, I thought the ACPI is provided by AN?


I think what Roderick means is that power management in ACPI is not supported by Arca Noae. If I remember correctly Davis said at Warpstock because it is hardware vendor specific.

If i remember correctly Lewis Rosenthal in his presentation at Warpstock Europe last year mentioned this. I think it is as Eric Ericslon says. Makes sense too. Prioritised support is what commercial users need.

The singer?

There is checkini from wptools, I assume you mean that- There is also Unimaint, with which you can also repair ini files. Perhaps that does what you want.

Simple install with default settings works well here.

Now that is very interesting.  What is it patched for becomes the obvious question but I suspect that you are not allowed to divulge that information.

Doug mentioned the much better behaviour re upper shared memory. So at a guess....

ArcaOS 5.0: Blue Lion is coming

Six months time, maybe. 

A few days seems more likely. I was not part of the beta test team but I have installed a beta version on my pc today. As far as I can tell the drivers are the latest versions i.e. acpi.psd 3.23.05 is able to use much higher irq then before. I see another bootloader (arcaloader 1.04), kernel 14.200.

A list of tested hardware would be handy, I agree- I suspect however that that is hardly a priority at the moment.
