Networking / Re: NAT Network & Host-Only Network
« on: May 07, 2023, 03:32:01 pm »
Hi ppgrainbow

I seem to recall something about having to set Windows NT4/2000 networking to use a particular setting in order for OS/2 <-> Windows peer networking to work. I'm struggling to remember the exact setting ... something like Use LanMan with a value of 1... Sorry, must be around 20+ years ago.

Maybe that will jog someone elses memory and they will post the exact setting.

Do you mean "lanman auth=" and "NTLMv2 auth=" ?

Networking / Re: KNE 2121+ Network Card - OS/2 Warp Connect
« on: April 30, 2023, 01:11:16 am »
I'm slowly making progress in my quest to get a Tandy/GRiD 386sc installed with OS/2 Warp Connect. I'm now at the stage of trying to get network going. The computer has a Kingston KNE-2121 card installed and have verifed operation under DOS with mTCIP. I'm struggling a bit with OS/2 and just now sure what drivers work. I have started the MPTS config tool and select "LAN adapters and Protocols" - > "Configure" -> "Other Adapters"

I have found KNE-2100 drivers and its broken into 2 disks.

Disk 1:

Disk 2:



After starting MPTS you must first add the network drivers for your card to the list of possible network drivers.
You do that by clicking the button " Install" instead of clicking on the button "Configure". A new window appears with the title "Install Additional Network Drivers", in which you can input where your additional network drivers are to be found. Default is A: for diskette drive A:.Insert your diskette 2 in the diskette drive and select the directory where the NDIS drivers for LANSRV30 are located (if in doubt, there is probably a readme-file on your diskette that says which directory should be chosen for which version of OS/2). Follow the directions on the screen.

After that you can start using the "Configure" button and then again the button "Configure" in the new window with title "Configure". Now you can select your network card in the list with network cards and use the "Add" button.
After that you have to attach one or more net(work protocols to your network card ("Add protocol"). Usually TCP/IP is enough. And finally you must configure TCP/IP. A good choice is not manually using a fixed IP-address, but using a dynamic IP-address instead by using DHCP. Just follow the prompts on your screen.

Programming / Re: Building a Dooble RPM

The %scm_source macro seems to expect three parameters, but in your examples I see only two (the SCM and URL parameters, but no REV parameter).
That is the only obvious thing that I see (I have no experience with building RPMs).

As svg support is missing bits of websites can be invisible eg ebay has a sort order and list or gallery view options that are not visible using Dooble.

You can also add for example


after the URL in order to switch the sort order to 'newly listed'. And there are other sort options that can be added after the URL, like &_sop=1 for 'ending soonest' etc.

Can anyone tell me how XWP sorts the objects in the 'Create new => folder' pop-up menu selection?

Yes, Rich Walsh can.

Hi Dave

Just tried downloading your latest Dooble but I get a message that the file is no longer available.
Any chance of a repost?



I could download without problem a few moments ago (had to press a blue "download" button in the centre of the screen)

Anyone else's google foo better than mine?

Trying to track down:
Code: [Select]
3b. JAXB 2.1 (,
    install it with java -jar JAXB2_20061211.jar)

I found a reference at , but cannot find it there. Perhaps dmik knows where it is stored?

Isn't dumpfs32 from Lars Erdmann? Then he can probably help you with any problems.

when I try to install it with RPM, is says "No package dooble available."  That's the first thing I tried after reading about it on ECSoft

The RPM for Dooble is only available for pentium4, so not for i686.
Try using the Arca Noae Package Manager (use Manage --> Platforms to add pentium4, and make sure it is listed at the top).
After that you should find the dooble package under Available in the left window of ANPM.

Setup & Installation / Re: Old DOS Program on ArcaOS VDM
« on: February 24, 2023, 11:28:41 pm »
Looking at the screenshot you attached, that error message is caused by the DOS Extender that is used by this program - it is not caused by the VDM that is part of ArcaOS. This DOS Extender requires a 80386 CPU or higher.

Applications / Re: Netlabs-exp RPM and Python issue?
« on: February 22, 2023, 11:24:19 pm »
Better to use ANPM to disable or manipulating /etc/yum/repos.d. Not sure how you will re-enable netlabs-rel after removing it, accept by manipulating the above.

In ANPM use the menu YUM --> Repositories to bring up a window "Manage YUM Repositories" that shows all  installed repositories (both the enabled and the disabled ones).

A right mouse click on a line with a repository allows to enable that repository when it was disabled or to disable it when it was enabled.
Alternatively: select in that window the line with the desired repository and then choose in the menu Repositories the option to enable/disable that repository.

Applications / Re: OpenOffice default Font Arial -> Calibri?

Tools -> Options --> OpenOffice Writer --> Standard Facetypes (Western) ? (sorry, don't know the German equivalents).
You can also find information in the online Help.

Comments, Suggestions & Questions / Re: Hobbes (Files) Reoganization
« on: January 22, 2023, 06:05:46 pm »

Today I got this doubt on where should hobbes kept the "Pre-recorded Demos for products". Those are recorded demos, that is an executable that shows you some multimedia presentation, it may have sound and allow you to make some clicks, but it is not a working demo or a product.

Currently I have those at "/pub/os2/games/toys", which I don't think it is the best place.
The files are:,

What you describe sounds like a "product presentation" or "product introduction". Perhaps in /pub/os2/info/marketing ? (already exists on Hobbes)

I notice that in x:\os2\install\smp and w4 are versions of harderr.exe. Running strings on it, it seems to have the kernel boot messages on it, the tail of strings harderr.exe,
Code: [Select]
EA program in this session encountered a problem and cannot
%@#IBM:14.103#@ OS/2 Hard Error Daemon

So it seems it too should match the kernel.
As for SMP, I wouldn't be surprised if too much is not SMP safe. I tried updating Warp v4 fp15 to SMP, it would trp in under a minute after the desktop came up.

When Scott Garfinkle from IBM still uploaded testkernels to IBM's testcase server, he always put os2ldr, os2dump (forgot this one in my previous answer) and os2krnl into the zipfiles. But never harderr.exe
