LAN works quite well via USB LAN Adapter with Moschip Chipset and USB A/ USB C Adapter.

Still on list:

- Revert to OS/2 Warp 4 desktop
- Revert as much as possible in German
- Getting Sound to work

Actual Problems:

- Warp Center is missing (is this deleted from ArcaOS?) -> I will convert XCenter with Icons etc. to Warp Center
- ArcaNoae Package Manager does not work reliable, crashes with Phyton Error
- Dooble wont start after I installed it with YUM install dooble from Command Prompt

Can you post a 'testlog uniaud' Preferably with the latest uniaud32.sys from the uniaud thread?

Warpcentre is an option during install, IIRC, it has a different name then warpcenter.
You probably need to update Python for ANPM. IIRC, you need to update/install python2.7 and python3 in one shot by themselves, along with dependencies such as python3-libs. Close and open ANPM after.
In my experience and testing Dooble did pull in all the needed dependencies. Anything in popuplog.os2? @unixroot/var/log/app? May want to try starting it on a cmd line as "dooble 2>&1 | tee dooble.log and post the log.

Hi Paul, it is late, so I just take the log with the ArcaOS 5.1 uniaud. Will test a newer one tomorrow.
Thanks for your help!

To activate the WarpCenter, edit CONFIG.SYS and add
Code: [Select]
,WARPCENTERTo the SET AUTOSTART= line.

Log without /a:1 would be interesting - but the hardware seems to be detected OK.

Might be worth a log with the debug version if updating to my latest build doesn't fix  it.

Thank you, Alex - and es well for your massive work on OS/2!!

I will see if I can create the "Lost" Program Icon.

As I do not like the "cold, industrial" look of ArcaOS I am on the way to return to Warp 4, as mentioned above, where this "warm and friendly" blue with its colourfull Icons welcomes me.

Testlog without /A:1 and latest uniaud. Booting with /A:1 gave me a Trap in XWPDAEMON now. Have to look later.

Meanwhile getting closer to Warp 4.

Hi again, Alex,

the WarpCenter starts but comes in full "ArcaOS" Style. It is not possible, at least I did not find a method, to change the Icons etc. there.

Is it possible to replace this Warpcenter with the one form Warp 4.52? If so - what files do I have to move/change?

Thank you very much again!!

Sigurd

To undo the resource replacement on the WarpCenter:
  • copy \os2\dll\SCENTER.DLL \os2\dll\SCENTER.BAK
  • unzip \sys\install\dialog\ORG_EN.ZIP SCENTER_DLL_ORG.RES -d \os2\dll
  • unlock \os2\dll\SCENTER.DLL
  • resmgr -a \os2\dll\SCENTER.DLL \os2\dll\SCENTER_DLL_ORG.RES
  • Reboot

Perfect, thank you very much, Alex! Btw: is there a way to change the size of the WarpCenter (like xcenter) besides changing small to big icons? I May have asked it years ago, but forgot, sorry.

Sadly, no. The WarpCenter only supports those two sizes, the tallest of which is 26 pixels high. It's an unfortunate limitation.

Now, it is implemented as a WPS class (SmartCenter), so in theory, someone who was knowledgeable in WPS programming (a very short list which does not include me) might be able to enhance it by subclassing it, but that's another story.

Thanks again! Yes. so I will try to customize the X Center from XWorkplace as much as possible to fit like the WarpCenter.

Meanwhile I changed the OS/2 Icon for rEFInd.

The OS/2 Warp 3 icon seems to be more popular to me compared to the warp 4 one.

Here we have a generational difference  ;D I think the Warp 4 logo is more cool.
But I guess other will disagree and say that the OS/2 Rings Logo is the more popular.

I guess we will have to "agree to disagree"  ;D ;D ;D

what device is this in detail? From the picture one can see that the vendor is delock.

Testlog without /A:1 and latest uniaud. Booting with /A:1 gave me a Trap in XWPDAEMON now. Have to look later.

Meanwhile getting closer to Warp 4.
the first log show that it could find the correct codec ALC287 the later one only has the HDMI audio. There is an error logged:
Error: invalid number of PCM instances for adapter 1

Here we have a generational difference  ;D I think the Warp 4 logo is more cool.
I also think that the design and logo of Warp4 look a way better.
