Internet / Re: Tried Browservice ?

It works great..  Can use all the Office 365 web apps in it just fine and anything else I've been able to throw at it.


Internet / Tried Browservice ?
« on: April 02, 2024, 11:11:17 pm »
I'm reinstalling some machines to try this--seems like it could be a viable way to browse the modern-day web with the browsers we have. (although not a great mobile solution)

"A web "proxy" server that enables browsing the modern web on historical browsers. It works by rendering the browser viewport into images, which are then shown by a JavaScript application running on the client browser."

It's mostly for older Internet Explorer versions, but says this is supported:

OS/2 Warp 4.52   Firefox

Fresh EFI install of 5.1 on HP EliteDesk 800 G3 machine worked just fine...  Only thing I had to change was Secure Boot Disable and Legacy Support Enable in the BIOS and then the USB stick booted fine EFI.

Setup & Installation / ArcaOS 5.0.8 upgrade successful

Hey all,

Just a quick note.. I updated my Thinkpad X301 from 5.0.7 to 5.0.8 and it worked great.  Booted from USB stick and it recognized my existing JFS partition and did the upgrade. 

Thanks much.

As previously stated, I have next to no programming knowledge.

I've love to have the flrig program (or suite of programs) available on ArcaOS for use of amateur radio.  Seems to be mostly written in C++ and is available on Windows, MacOS and Linux platforms now.  Any idea if this would be complex to port over?

Thanks for any thoughts.

Oh interesting solution...  I haven't seen that type of "converter" before...  Thanks for this , I'll look to get one.

I want to try to add wifi to my HP laptop that might be supported under ArcaOS 5.0.7....  Are there any and if so, what brand/model or chipset should I look for?

Thanks much!!

I found a tutorial..

javaw.exe -jar <minecraftfile.jar>

Gets error "Could not find the main class:  net.minecraft.client.Main.  Program will exit."

Ah well, had to try.  :)

Well, there's a whole bunch of other folders for it on my Windows machine... maybe I'll try copying all of it over and mess around a bit.  Will reply back later.

Hi all,

Ok don't fire me...  does OS/2-ArcaOS have a new enough Java to run Minecraft?

I tried copying the jar file off but couldn't get the syntax to get it to try to run....

Thanks......  We play a lot of Minecraft at our house.  :)

Here's the pci.exe output for the Dell laptop.

Dell Latitude D630
Intel Core 2 Duo processor 1.2GHz
Windows XP vintage machine
1280x800 display

BIOS Setting:  "SATA Operation" set to "ATA"----I changed this back to AHCI and the computer is loading the AHCI driver per pci.exe.... so this one could work with AHCI I think.

Does recognize and looks to be using 2 processors.
Wired ethernet works, wireless does not. 


Applications / Re: Test build of dooble with qt5
« on: February 06, 2023, 06:55:56 pm »
Hi all,

I'm not sure what the capabilities of Dooble are supposed to be (I just asked how to get a binary for Windows as I'm not a programmer) but it'd be great to be able to use the Microsoft Office 365 web applications on OS/2-ArcaOS.  I'm using Dooble 2022.10.15, X.  i386 build.  Qt version 5.15.2.  I'm running ArcaOS 5.0.7.

I can log into successfully and almost get to the like dashboard..but the browser crashes after most elements load. 

Any way I can test it further or gather any information to help troubleshoot?

Thanks so much for the time!!
