Thanks for the link. David provided viop.sys to me in 2017, but I guess it never made it into the ArcaOS DVD. I do not know if this is related to the PMVIOP provided by IBM.

I've used the viop.sys in my systems for some time. The version you are using is two bytes larger than mine. I tried the new one on the T450s and it works the same.

If you keep going with the X250, check if you get an occasional failure to boot "OS/2 is unable to operate your hard drive" It is hard for me to make a bug report for a not quite reproducible error.

Just tested it on my Lenovo thinkpad T430s.

Before the fix, I could not use full screen or windowed DOS or Win sessions.  With the fix applied, I can use DOS and WIN full screen,  Windowed sessions still do not work.  This fix definitely helps.

For the windowed sessions you can try changing this line in config.sys DEVICE=I:\OS2\MDOS\VSVGA.SYS to DEVICE=I:\OS2\MDOS\VSVGA.SYS /int10textgrfxsafe. You also need to add
mode co80
cls
to autoexec.bat
This works on my system without viop.sys so I don't know how they behave if used together.
One other note if I change DOS LOW, NOUMB to DOS HIGH, UMB in config.sys mode traps on my system.

BACK IN BUSINESS!

As I wrote elsewhere: there is a patch für die UNIAUD Driver (see my report or Bugtracker 2637) so that Sound inlcuding Volume is working now with the X250 (and probaly a lot of others!).

So I will start preparing Videos this weekend!!

Thanks to the support from the ArcaOS Team with the Bugtracker!

The Videos will be published within my already existing Youtube Channel, so there will be no special channel. It would couse to much work otherwise.
