socket () fails: Protocol family not supported
« on: August 27, 2020, 12:14:26 am »
I get this error iduring boot of ArcaOS 5.0.3. This is not a problem with ArcaOS 5.0.3 rather a problem with ME! I've inadvertantly screwed something up and have no idea how to attack this error.  Is it possible there is something I might copy from another ArcaOS install (I have 5.0.2 thru 5.05 installed   and working!) that would fix this problem?
Thanks for any ideas, I know next to nothing about sockets & Protocols.

Hi klipp

Looks like a possible tcpip problem.

If you use Text Editor to create an empty file called ALTF2ON.$$$ IN \os2\boot and then reboot it may be possible to spot which driver is involved.

Just a guess,

make sure you have file "protocol" in your %ETC% directory (and "services" if that is also missing).

Thanks Dave and Lars, Dave's ALTF2ON$$ showed a Adapter that needed to be removed, That fixed the problem, but now I've removed ALTF"ON$$ from but still get the expanded config listing. I tried ALTF2OFF$$ but didn't turn it off. (no big deal!).
One last question, I used to know where to look to see which ArcaOS was installed on a machine, but I've forgotten the location, Anyone Help?

Hi klipp

Open a command window in the root of the boot drive then use

dir ALTF2ON.$$$ /s

to check for other instances of that file.

Hey Pete, How ya Doing? I tried what you recommended and it did'nt find any other instances of ALTF2ON $$$ /s.
Its not a really big deal- informative but takes a little longer to boot.

Thanks  klipp

No, it takes not longer than without the messages.

According to what you've reported, your system seems to have disk problems. I would try to reproduce that with the same hardware first. Please report only after that.
