Hi Mike

I have an old Acer Travelmate laptop that does not produce sound with any uniaud driver unless I turn on and set volume using a cmd file in the Startup folder.

I suggest you use unimix to check the state of the soundcard and see if that might work for your laptop.

Hi Martin

If \ibmcom\mpts.exe starts with the "crippled" protocol.ini - I seem to recall it does - then you should open a bug report about naps failure to start.

Hi Martin

My guess is that either the software is not up to the job with this mainboard or there is a problem with the DMI table which does not affect the use of the mainboard at all.

i had a look for the problem using Google and found a lot of results including this helpful advice

  Bugs
  More often than not, information contained in the DMI tables is inaccurate, incomplete or simply wrong. 

found at https://linux.die.net/man/8/dmidecode

Hi Martin

Are there any parameters for dmidecode? I ask because using dmidecode gives this result:-

[M:\SYS\APPS\ANPM]dmidecode
# dmidecode 2.12
SMBIOS 2.7 present.
58 structures occupying 2541 bytes.
Table at 0xCEB94018.

Invalid entry length (0). DMI table is broken! Stop.

Hi Martin

You can always use [BootDrive]:\sys\install\DETECT\pci.exe to generate a devices report for ArcaOS - on eCS systems that is [BootDrive]:\ecs\install\DETECTEI\PCI.EXE

Use this command
   pci /?
to get a list of parameters.

Hi David

I have not had any problems with peer and the mmre driver.

I have just updated the mmre driver with the latest multimac release Multimac-20170901.exe which seems to be working fine.

I guess we should start with the contents of the log \IBMCOM\LANTRAN.LOG and see if that gives any clues.

Did you select Easy Install when installing ArcaOS? - Just wondering if samba got installed instead of peer.

Applications / Re: Firefox crashes on maps
« on: September 22, 2017, 02:12:32 am »
Hi

@Andy
Same build of Seamonkey and the crashes are repeatable.

The only difference I can see between Firefox and Seamonkey is that Firefox beeps when it crashes, Seamonkey does not and no trp file is generated.

@Dave
Seamonkey has only been able to use Google Maps in "Lite Mode" for a long time. Doubt if it is related to bandwidth, more likely that Seamonkey is an "unsupported browser" ie it is not Chrome or IE.

Hi David

it looks like the WPS Class List app which is part of the xWorkplace installation is displaying at startup. If this app is not in the startup folder then your os2.ini file is a bit "munged". To fix this use inifix from http://home.clara.net/orac/files/os2/inifix10.zip - read the inifix.doc file first.

Yes, you can safely delete the Ezplay and WPTouch classes but will probably need WPSClassManager to do that http://hobbes.nmsu.edu/download/pub/os2/util/wps/WPSClassMgr_0-1.zip

Hi Andy

Seamonkey 2.42.9esr crashes here when using Google maps as a result of zooming in and moving the map around.

Hi John

ACPI v3.23.01? - Not an ArcaOS install then.

Has the drive letter changed as a result of adding the drive into a system with another drive - the mSATA drive? Could be worth using the dfsee bootable CD to check drive letter assignment and adjust as necessary.

Is the X220 BIOS set to use AHCI or IDE disk access mode? - Using the Dani Driver suggests you have installed in IDE mode but the BIOS may be set to AHCI.

Hi John

Probably have to look at the differences in hardware... eg Do both systems use ACPI? and What disk access mode is used by both systems? also What video driver is involved?

Might also help if we have a clue as to when boot crashes. Can you create an empty ALTF2ON. $$$ file in the root partition of the boot drive - should list drivers loading.

Hi Phil

If the BIOS speciifies usb hard drive and floppy but not usb cd/dvd I would guess that the system cannot boot from usb cd/dvd.

Hi John

That may be a problem if there is also a Windows boot partition on the same disk - but only for Windows. Usually there is no problem installing OS/2 to a hard drive in a pc then swapping that hard drive to another pc.
