Hardware Wiki report
« on: January 06, 2021, 02:54:20 pm »
Hi

If you have a computer and/or device working on OS/2 and ArcaOS, please let me know to add it to the Hardware Wiki right here. https://www.os2world.com/wiki/index.php/Category:Hardware

A few observation:
1.- Remember to give me the model and hardware reports with pci.exe and lsusb if it is an usb device. HardwareID are very useful to know the chipset inside things and compare other working hardware.  Here I have an article on how to use those tools.

2.- The driver and any tip and trick that you used to make it work is welcome.

3.- If you reported a laptop/desktop/mainboard before, times has changed, now we have USB 3.x drivers with ArcaOS and Paul's Uniaud updates are showing good progress. So, let me know if I need to update the USB 3 and Audio support of the reported laptops/desktop/mainboards.

4.- You may post your hardware report here or send it via e-mail too.

Thanks for your help

Regards.

Hi Martin,

I have a couple of network colour printers that work very well even if they had to be added to the PSPRINT driver.
1)  Brother HL-3170cdw (colour laser) using the built in BR Script 3 PS emulator, connected by SLPR.
2)  Brother DCP-9020cdw (colour laser with flat bed scanner with sheet feeder) using the BR Script 3 PS emulator, connected by SLPR.  The Scanner works very well scanning over the network to the FTP Server on the computer.

The other item is a Brother ADS-1600w page scanner used over the network to the FTP server.

All units have been given fixed IP addresses on the network and were simple to setup through their built in browser interface.

Hi Martin.

A few  comments,
1) the HL-3170cdw is just a printer - no scanner.

2) you might need to add that using the PSPRINT driver needs the PPD files for each printer to be imported (I used the Linux PPDs) otherwise the printer does not appear in the list of printers.  Importing the PPD files produces an AUXPRINT.PAK file that must be in the same directory as PSPRINT.DRV.

3) the ADS-1600w is just a page scanner (see picture).

4) both the scanners are setup to scan in different modes and resolutions. Example, the ADS-1600w has; 1)a letter setting - B&W @ 300 dpi, 2)a doc setting - colour @ 300 dpi and 3)a picture setting - colour @ 600 dpi.  The DCP-9020dcw has a few more at higher resolutions.

Thanks Ivan.

I fixed the issue. Here it is the link for the Brother ADS-1600W (Scanner).

I lack a lot of experience with printers drivers. I will need to read more about it, and everybody is welcome to write some quick article for the wiki on tips on how to install printer drivers in 2021 :)

On these days I got these reports:
Lenovo Thinkpad E585‎‎
- Lenovo Thinkpad E575

Hi Martin,

Just a preliminary note about my new computer based on a MSI B550-A Pro motherboard with a third generation Ryzen 3 Pro 4350G processor.

So far it works well with a lot of USB 3 ports and using a small hard disk while I wait for the M.2 SSD/SATA and extra memory to arrive in the mail.

MSI say it will only work with win 10, by that I assume they mean their supplied software will on work with win 10 because ArcaOS is running fine.  I will make a full report when I have everything assembled, that is when the parts arrive.  In the mean time I am going over the desktop to change all the folders to having the icons 'as placed' and to not 'maintain sort order' - why that isn't selectable during install Ill never know.

Thanks Ivan

Let me know if the M.2 SSD/SATA will work once you get it.
If you want, you can post the PCI.exe report so I can create the wiki page for that mainboard.

Attached the PCI report but it looks as if I need a newer pcidevs file.

The M.2 SSD/sata is the same as the one I have working in the ASRock B450M Pro 4 unit with the second gen Ryzen processor so I don't expect any problems with it.

The biggest problem is going through the uefi setup screens and how they interact with each other - miss one setting and performance goes to pot, just look at the block diagram to see what 'fun' it is.

Latest pcidevs file should be at http://pci-ids.ucw.cz/

Hi

I'm reading the latest pci.ids and I can not find the unknown devices. It seems that the mainboard is very new.

Here I tried my best to make the page for the MSI_B550-A_Pro. Please let me know if the drivers are alright.

Hi,

I have a Thinkpad x230 (2306cto according to dmidecode).  It runs fine on ArcaOS 5.0.6 (sound, wired network, video), although as expected WiFi doesn't work.  Attached are the pci and dmidecode output.  Please let me know if you need any more information.

Thanks,
-Eric

Looks good, thanks!  I added the CPU model in.
