Hi All

Installing the VA Basic client does not seem to have changed much here; no change to som*.dll files except a few added, the only changes to config.sys are adding VAB directories to the end of Path and Libpath and putting the VAB SOM.IR at the start of SET SOM - there does not seem to be any duplicate files installed.

Hi ivan

I have to agree with klipp as I have been using Logitech wireless usb keyboards and trackballs for years without problems.

If the systems with only USB3 ports are able to drop back to USB2/1 then you should not have problems.

With regard to extra keyboard keys some may be recognised by xwp - have a read of the Registering Extra Function Keys in the xwp user guide.

Hi Robert

I just downloaded VAB from the url you supplied.

I have only installed the client and can state that it runs on ArcaOS so would expect it to run on ecS2.1 - will try to install to eCS2.1 later to test.

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.
