- DOSIdle :  Don't know what it does and where to put it.

this one should help fix high DOS CPU usage for CA-Clipper (similar to from the package from dink but for only one program)

That's good. Maybe both (DOSIdle  and NeatUtils) can go into "/pub/os2/util/system", otherwise I'm open for a better location suggestion on hobbes.

And I found more about CcDoc, it will go to "/pub/os2/dev/tools/docgen"

Ok, I had also checked Paul Smedley's site and sync some file versions with hobbes. Thanks to Paul for fixing some dead links on his site.

Hi Albert, welcome to the forum

I don't have that program, but I just want to give more details, just in case someone else can help.

Is it XactPro by SciLab GmbH (Germany) ?? Or it is a different XAct?

Good. I had checked the excellent Glassman software. It is update in hobbes with the exception of:
- DOSIdle :  Don't know what it does and where to put it.
- CCDoc :  Don't know what it does and where to put it.

While I keep going reorganising the /os2/util directory, I will like to go in parallel with the next phase, which is including missing software on hobbes.

I need feedback to know which freeware/shareware/opensource software I'm missing on /os2/apps.
The idea will be to have on hobbes the latest version of each software for OS/2.

So, if you see text editors, Engineering software, calculators, etc, that is missing hobbes, just post it here so I can upload it.


Applications / Re: Node.js?
« on: August 10, 2022, 06:33:41 pm »

I always wanted to see if we can run node.js application as stand alone.
There were some node.js applications that runs inside the firefox and dooble browser on OS/2, but I always wondering what it is missing to be able to run those as stand alone apps. I found it interesting how quick the developer make those apps for Windows, MacOS, Linux and web.

Some of the apps are like Element for chat. There are some other I don't remember now. I guess we need to get the list of killer node.js open source software and solve the question. Why getting Node.js running on OS/2 will be cool ?

And, it seems I forgot to further test js.exe from "What is needed for Node.js apps?"

Enable serial port in Virtualbox, and there's an option to save the serial port output to a text file.
Make com.sys (or pscom.sys) is loaded
add /p:1 to the uniaud32 driver line in config.sys



Hi Paul, the uniaud drivers installation is a task I left undone last year (Warp 4.52 on Virtualbox) since I could not obtain sound from video streaming on browser (ie. youtube), which is still my actual issue in soundblaster mode as well. Following these latest posts I feel I could try again now. Where can I find an installation steps how-to, like config.sys editing?
Thank you

Hi Mauro.

I would do it this way.
- Install the full Uniaud using the latest full installer. (
- Check everything is fine on the VM
- Later install the latest devbuild that Paul's offers here.

Hi Paul

I'm using the "release" version.
- Enabled Serial port and take the output as a RAW file.
- Enabled COM.SYS
- Added /p:1 on Uniaud.
- Rebooted and changed to "ICH AC97" to reproduce the trap.

This is what it showed on the RAW text file.

Uniaud32 version 3.01.01
Based on linux 5.15.59
pci_register_driver: query_device found 28 8086:2415 class=40100 checking intel8x0
pci_register_driver: matched 0 8086:2415/40100 with 8086:2415/0 0 (intel8x0)

It is something else I need to do?

Hi Fran├žois, welcome to the forum.

I will also like to also suggest you to install testlog (link here), run "testlog generic" and upload the text the report. With that we can have a first idea of your configuration.

I found that the Intel 2200 Wlan [8086:4220] is listed as supported devices of GenMU, which is a extra set of driver for GenMAC.

Hi Paul

I also went straight for the 20220807b and got a trap on VirtualBox.
I tested it with ArcaOS 5.0.7 VM guest on VBox 6.1.36 (Windows 10 host).
- VM ICH AC97: traps
- VM Intel HD Audio: Works, Audio control working, no traps.


Programming / Re: SIO, SIO2K

Hi Fusion

I had been talking with Ray Gwinn for aprox five years via Facebook, requesting him to open source SIO2K. He initially agreed, but when the time comes to share the source code, I don't know why he pulls back. First he wanted to be sure someone will keep the working on this code, later he wanted someone to goes to his hoome to pick up the code and later he said that he can only make available source code on his own ftp (for legal reassons) and that his ISP didn't allow that.

I'm trying to contact him one more time to see what he told me.

I was reported that ebay has this "IBM 7581-T01 Library Manager" with "Warp 5.40;D ;D
Possible a typo and it is Warp 4.50, but it is fun stuff to post here !!!! or maybe...


Just in case I asked for more hints to the seller and he does not know about OS/2. But he told me that the
tape library was removed from a government facility on Long Island.

Ican't help wondering why people keep on using something designed to prevent phosphor burn in on CRT monitors when it doesn't work on modern LCD panels.

I love screen savers. I know that all those "tree huggers hippies" are right when they say that is just better for the earth to automatically turn off the monitor, but I just loved the old Johnny Castaway;D ;D ;D

Hi Fusion.

I have to say this is a bit of a shame. 20+ years worth of links on the Internet to the Hobbes archive don't work anymore. Several files on Hobbes also have text files in them referencing other files on Hobbes by filename, which can no longer be searched since most of the names have been changed.

Would have been better to create a new index referencing into the old structure or something. As it is now, I've been using one of the mirrors listed in the main page to find the files with their correct filenames. And I have the original directory structure memorized..

Ah well..

I respect your opinion, but hobbes needed a refresh trying to remove unnecessary versions of the same software, duplicated files, wrong located files and with issues with filenames that didn't mean anything at all for the people surfing the site.
Ex: There was files called "" and "" that did not give you any hint what and which version that people were downloading. 
I personally think that the "20+ years worth of links on the Internet" are disappearing at a very fast speed with all the OS/2 sites that get erased day after day.

Also I had been including the original file name on the long description so the name can be indexed on search engines in case of someone looking for those. I'm also trying my best to include the full name, version and release date of each file, that is searchable on the hobbes site, so, if the filename does not work you can search the name of the software and mostly it will give you a search result.

If you prefer to have the old names, you can get the hobbes backup on at: and hopefully it will be there forever.
