Applications / Re: FreeRDP - we have options!!!
« on: June 15, 2021, 04:09:03 pm »
in general you need a terminal server or remote desktop host in your network for that. That is a windows server component that exists since windows 2000. You must license this component separate from your windows server os license. Every Windows professional or enterprise has this terminal server component also, but only one user can connect per rdp to windows. You can patch the termsrv.dll on windows 7,8,10 that it becomes a multiuser operating systems, so that more than one user can connect to this windows with rdp. With Windows professional you can only open windows fullscreen sessions; with windows enterprise you can hack the registry that single applications will be offered; the enterprise edition from windows 7,8,10 you can run seamless rdp applications.
There exists some 3rd party tools, such as thinstuff, which make the windows client os mult user os and serve applications for rdp clients.

I have installed it on my W520 and my X1 Carbon notebook. Both with ArcaOS 5.0.6. No problems so far.

having an actual qemu would be very nice. I have managed to run OS/2 4/3/2.1, FreeDOS and Windows 95 on our old qemu. networking does not work; with "user" - networking I get IP addresses but I cannot connect to any service; I think something is broken in the network emulation.

Yes, that's with both kernels (ibm and os4)!

When killing acpidaemon setproc enables and disables cores like expected. But whithout ascpidaemon running my freece problems are gone. I have tried to disable two of my four cpu cores, becouse I have an application which freezes my quad core machine an does not freeze my dual core machine. And now it seems that the acpidaemon freezes my quadcore machine.

Strange ...

@Dariusz: the suggested tool is only working without acpi. Without acpi the cores stay disabled. With acpi4.bsd (os4krnl) or with acpi.psd (ibm kernel) the cores disabled by setproc.exe will be enabled immediatly.

@OS4User: yes HT cores are disabled until I use the /HT switch; but I cannot disable physical cores.

It's an Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2760QM CPU @ 2.40GHz - Quad Core CPU. I will try to run with only 2 cores because with 4 cores the the system freezes sometimes; with os4 kernel and ibm kernel. And I think with 2 cores it runs more stable - but with os4 kernel I cannot switch off 2 cores.

with IBM Kernel we can switch off cpu cores on boot (acpi.psd /maxcpu=2). Is there an equivalent switch for the os4 kernel.

Hi Ivan,

it should be no problem to connect your XP VM to your NAS in your local network. I have ArcaOS 5, with virtualbox 5.0.61. and my Windows XP VM can mount shares on a samba server. In our XP configuration setup networking as NAT (and not NAT-networking), choose as network adapter PCnet-FAST III and check "cable connected". In your Windows XP you have to install the correct driver, and than your VM schould receive automatically. Maybe your XP guest cannot resolv the name of your NAS, so use the IP of the NAS or create entrys in the file C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts. My samba server connection is established with the following command

C:>net use Z:  \\fileserver\home\bernhard /user:openit\bernhard <password>
The command completed successfully

The machine fileserver has the IP

best regards

Hi Rick,

I have used an openssh wpi package

which is working well; the openssh packages installed with yum do not work correctly.

Networking / OpenSSH_7.7p1 tcgetattr: Invalid argument
« on: December 03, 2020, 10:24:43 am »
I have updated my rpm packages and so openssh-clients version 7.7p1 was installed. This version has some problems:

Code: [Select]
[C:\]ssh -V
OpenSSH_7.7p1, OpenSSL 1.0.2t  10 Sep 2019

[C:\]ssh prometheus
root@prometheus's password:
[b]tcgetattr: Invalid argument[/b]

Process dumping was disabled, use DUMPPROC / PROCDUMP to enable it.

The external process was cancelled by a Ctrl+Break or another process.

The problem is the line "tcgetattr: Invalid argument". I have an older Version as OpenSSH_5.3p1 as wpi installed; this version does not show the error and is working proper. Is there a solution for version 7.7p1.

best regards

I noticed that new BASEDEV drivers (USB 12.05+) from Arca do not display diagnostic messages when booting with the OS / 4 kernel and not load. Perhaps the problem is only in the driver loader itself. This gives us hope that the problem can be quite easily fixed.

I  have placed an bug report on AN bug tracker. Will see what they are saying. I will post the answer.

That is the answer from AN:

Regardless what any other kernel (legal or illegal) may offer, Arca Noae has no intention of providing support for non-Arca Noae kernels.

If the request is that we add support for a feature not currently implemented in the ArcaOS kernel, that is a separate matter, and such requests are accepted for consideration.

As described here, the configuration on your system is completely unsupported by Arca Noae (not just the USB stack).

Our best recommendation is to use a legal, supported kernel, specifically, the one supplied with ArcaOS.

(I, too, use a browser in a box" solution under VBox 1.6 on ArcaOS, which works just fine for running small Linux distros, with Arca Noae kernels 14.200 and 14.201.)

The case is closed by Lewis.

Hi ivan

I have this line in config.sys which may be relevant

REM ***** Next line required due to lbcx update versions causing problems with VirtualBox



Hi pete,
I have "SET LIBCX_HIGHMEM=2" in my config.sys but most time the virtual machnes will not start. With OS4 kernel I can run any version of OS/2 (2.0 , 2.1, 3.0, 4.0 and ArcaOS); windows xp  and windows 7; most linuxes are working too; I have to use 32bit linux versions; I write this answer in falkon browser on Arch32 Linux - this is my "browser in a box" vm on ArcaOS. Sometimes I get it starting after several tries with ArcaOS (IBM) kernel but mostly I am using the OS4 kernel (because of the vt-x extension).
best regards

With usb version 12.05 and usb version 12.06 usb support is lost with OS4 kernel. Till usb version 12.04 it worked well with OS4 kernel and with IBM kernel. 12.05 and 12.06 are still working on IBM kernel, without no problem. I have tried this on two laptops, and both are showing the same behavior. One is a Thinkpad W520 and one a Thinkpad T42p.

Logs said that USB stack  is not loading for some reason. It is  hard to explain,  hope it will be fixed  in  12.07.  I am using USB stack from Lars and it works fine for me with any kernels.

I have made two kernel logs on the t42p, because this one has a serial adapter.

You can get the log without comport once the system is booted,  [copy kernlog$ mylog.txt]

Looking through your logs, I would suggest:
- put BASEDEV=USBD.SYS line before BASEDEV=USB?HCD.SYS  lines
- check the list  in HowTo file to make sure you have tuned up your settings properly (THREADS, PROCESSES, etc)

usb 12.4 and older AN usb drivers are also working with OS4 kernel, 12.5 breaks that. The bad thing is that without usb 12.6 I have no usb 3 and without OS4 kernel I have no working virtualbox for os/2.
BTW: USBD.SYS is before all USB?HCD.SYS statements in my config.sys and the settings are properly choosen.
