Thanks for sharing.

Ibrahim, XDM is more like a wishlist, It haven't been ported, right?

Well, there's no native port but the Java version does run on OS/2, albeit with the issue that I mentioned. I actually learned of this program's existence through Joop's page: https://joopn.home.xs4all.nl/os2ecs/ecs6e80.htm

I do realize now that it's probably more of a wishlist situation considering it would probably be best for natively supported software to be bundled/configured before anything else, my apologies ;D

A straightforward, modern and easy to use download manager of some kind I reckon would be a great addition. With the resources a Firefox session takes by simply being active, I personally find it difficult to multi-task whilst I'm downloading say, a large video or part of my music library.

I'd suggest XDM but as of recently it seems to be having issues connecting to most HTTPS servers. Jdownloader does not have this problem but is quite slow (50-100kb/s on an otherwise 250kb/s to 500kb/s connection).

Hi Dave.

I copied it into it's own directory (C:\PROGRAMS\qtwebtest5_4) which I've then added under PATH (LIBPATH had no success either) in config.sys. I've added added the check.log in case it helps; from what I can see, it's looking for DLLs which are definitely installed and updated from the Netlabs-exp repo where required.

Notepad++ is a really big one in my eyes, it's easily the best text editor I've ever used and I'd give anything to see it on OS/2.

From personal experience, they will manually email you the good stuff, it took a bit under a day for me. Just give 'em some time  :)

Hi Dariusz.

Your recommended modified IFS statements did the trick! I ran some basic tests involving moving a few GB's worth of files with both my USB and local partition, and it seems to be operating smoothly.

I'll continue to monitor the situation and update the thread if any further problems arise  ;D

I'm running 0.10.r383 on ArcaOS and I've verified there are no duplicates, the line referring to FAT32.ifs is as follows:
Quote
ifs=C:\OS2\BOOT\FAT32.ifs /cache:2048 /h /q /ac:* /largefiles /fat /exfat

All IFS references are just after the first line which I think is required for JFS to start:
Quote
DEVICE= C:\OS2\BOOT\UNICODE.SYS

Storage / Regarding the Netlabs FAT32 driver
« on: December 27, 2020, 10:50:02 am »
After seeing Dariusz's recent thread, I'm now using the Netlabs FAT32 driver instead of the AN one and life is already so much more convenient.

All is not well in paradise however... Does anyone get any stability/access issues with this driver and if so, are there any good tricks on avoiding those problems (Namely the SYS0266 error)? I'm finding I have to reinstall the driver and reboot a few times afterward in order to get it to read/write FAT32 partitions (all formatted with DFSEE) which otherwise run fine on my other non OS/2 environments.

Thanks in advanced as always  :)

Peter's usbcfg might help in such a case.

It absolutely would! I'll definitely keep this utility in mind the next time I need to pull something like this off  :)

So upon a quick comparison between the two config.sys files' USB sections, I saw that the installation with the working mouse/keyboard has two back-to-back references to:
Quote
BASEDEV=USBEHCD.SYS

The section from which this was obtained is as follows:
Quote
BASEDEV=USBD.SYS
BASEDEV=USBEHCD.SYS
BASEDEV=USBEHCD.SYS
BASEDEV=USBXHCD.SYS
BASEDEV=USBHID.SYS
BASEDEV=USBCDROM.ADD /CDS:1
BASEDEV=USBMSD.ADD /REMOVABLES:8 /FLOPPIES:0

Whereas the restored backup from my T450S only has one. After adding that extra line into my config.sys file, it would seem the problem has totally gone away and that I am able to use a mouse and keyboard properly once again. I'm a little bit perplexed as to why referring to the same BASEDEV twice in config.sys would have this effect, but I am honestly relieved the solution was this straightforward.

The repeating keystroke problem is still here, but it's nowhere near as often as it was before. Everything seems to be working alright now.

I've attached a copy of the PCI report in case you're still interested  ;D

OHCI vs ECHI drivers? Post the USB parts of the config.sys. Ideally would be to have the config.sys of the failed install. Output of PCI would be nice too.

I'll do a stock install on a different hard drive and report back with the output of PCI as well as the usb sections of config.sys from the T450S image. As for the drivers currently being used, I believe they're EHCI.

Hardware / Restoring T450S backup to M93P Tiny - USB HID woes
« on: December 24, 2020, 09:00:10 am »
Hi all.

As the title summarizes, I recently got my hands on a Lenovo Thinkcentre M93P Tiny - mainly to have something a bit more practical to run at my desk rather than my T450S. I initially ran a fresh install of ArcaOS 5.0.6 which mainly worked... save for the keyboard input which was repeating keystrokes if you typed at any reasonable speed.

After running into this roadblock, I figured restoring a backup of my Thinkpad T450S to the computer (using the setup USB and DFSEE) might yield better results but I'm now in the situation where I'm no longer able to use any USB mouse or keyboard post-boot. The computer will still recognize my USB disks but no HID devices. The USB stack I'm currently using is the Arca Noae 12.07 driver package.

I'd much rather work from this state rather than a fresh install as the environment is already perfectly configured and ready to go (save for the USB HID situation).

Does anyone have any advice or pointers on where to go from here?

Thanks in advance  :)
