I was able to connect to the internet and OS/2 World by using a network cable directly to my cable modem. Now I can surf the internet and download files directly to my computer.

My computer is an Acer Aspire One. The CPU is an Intel Atom N455, 166 ghz andd 512 KB cache. The memory is 1 gigabyte DDR3. The battery is a 6-cell Li-On. Storage is 250 gigabyte HDD. It has a 10.1 LED LCD. It indicates multi-gesture for the touch pad. It has 'signal up' but I don't know what that is. It is wifi certified.

I am looking for the file I created before with system information. I will try to post it here. I want to use the wifi but a direct connection to the cable box works for now.

I think that is still more power than what they used when they went to the moon.

General Discussion / OS/2 at WinWorld Libary?
« on: January 09, 2018, 05:37:45 am »
I was at another forum and found this link. It is WinWorld Libary. They have an OS/2 section.
They also have a section for DOS / CP/M, Windows and Apple/MAC, *nix and 'other OS and Shells'. They have files for these operating systems that one can download. Has anyone tried any of them?

After IBM had won that lawsuit against Microsoft for stopping OS/2 Warp from being pre-installed on computers, I had hoped they would continue developing their operating system to compete with Windows. Alas, they did not. I am glad there was eComStation and now Arca Noae to continue.

It would be neat if there was some backward compatibility but I don't see it as being critical.

I can wait a few more months for the new laptops.
I am also impatient for the new version of Arca OS, the one which boots from USB

I think that would be great since it seems optical drives are on the way out and it is not easy finding a computer that still has one.

I was able to install ArcaOS on a laptop using an USB optical drive. It has wifi but does not see it. I have a printer and will see if it works with it.

Hardware / Acer Aspire One Computer Review?

I found a site that has a review of the Acer Aspire One.
It seems similar to what I have. The article as information / specs on the laptop.

Thank you for the information. It is appreciated.

Hardware / format a flash drive?
« on: October 07, 2017, 06:16:21 am »
I did the 'pci.exe < pciout.txt' thing. Now I am trying to get it to a flash drive to post here. It sees the flash drive but says it is not formatted correctly. It has been awhile since I formatted a flash drive in OS/2 - eCS. I am looking in ArcaOS to where it is done. A little help in how it is done is appreciated.

Thanks for the reply and the information.

Please post back the pci.exe report like : "pci.exe > pciout.txt" so I can post it on the OS2World wiki. Also with the wifi hardwareId we can get a hint if the card is supported in some way.


I will try the PCI.exe and report back with results.

Right click on desktop, choose Properties-->Background

Thanks about the information on the wallpaper change.

Hardware / ArcaOS 5.0 on an Aspire One Computer.
« on: October 01, 2017, 12:18:27 am »
I finally got around to trying the ArcaOS 5.0 operating system. It is on an Aspire One D255E with an Intel Atom N455 (1.6 ghz) with 512 KB cache, 1 GB DDR3 memory, 250 GB HDD, and a 6 cell Li-On battery. It has sound. I can use an USB mouse. I don't think it sees / detects the wifi port.

I tried to change the wallpaper but I have yet to find where it is that changes it.

With eCS, it did not see a flash drive that was attached. I will see if it does or does not.

I am so glad it works with it. The next step is to tweak it. Perhaps upgrade to 5.01? I will try different software with it. It can use the USB optical drive.

I am one happy nerdy camper.

How old is this old computer? What is the make and model of this old computer?

I think this is neat. I like the 'eraser head' track pin. I like it better than using the touchpad. I am still trying to get used to a touchpad but I prefer using a mouse; wireless nowadays. Perhaps call it retro?
