- it expected to be tunable in next versions of OS/4 kernel
- OS/2 can swap no more than 80000h 4K pages (2Gb totally) (If necessary, OS/4 (with modifications) will be able to do twice as much)
- now it works as follows: first swaps to 4Gb+ memory, if you need more, swaps to disk as usual.

OS/4 Kernel swaps memory directly with 4Gb+ region, without involving IFS, etc. (starting from ver 6254 ).

No setup is necessary. If  4Gb+ mem is installed, 1.2Gb of it  will be used for swapping.

Enjoy a really fast swapping.

If you use VBOX and Seamonkey and try to open AOO or Dooble then for sure your lower shared mem runs out. Even on my system with >300MB lower shared mem after boot. VBOX is the biggest memory hook. Maybe cause my WinXP guest runs at about 3500x2000 pixel resoltution. But SM needs a lot of mem too. I stopped using IBMs LanMan (requester, server) to save some shared mem.

mark your dll to be loaded "high"  - it is only solution that can help

I often see the similar with 3.2 GB's visible to the system.
that is what  I am talking about

Do you monitor your swap file?

my system does not swap (afaik)

out of memory allocating 65536 bytes after a total of 282394624 bytes

out of what memory ?  hi/lo shared/privet  ?
the same question about "total of 282394624 bytes"

As you can see i have only 1MIB as free mem.
When compiling things i have to reboot several times as i get often OUT of MeM

Hi Elbert

Actually, amount of physical memory should not have any connection to OUT of MeM, since a kernel compensates a lack of phys mem by swapping to hard drive.

I am wondering who is supporting kTaskMgr.
I have some idea/feature request and if the supporter is interested, I would like to share.

unless they change the underlying OS/2 to a 64 bit OS.

why do you need 64 bit OS/2 ?  we do not have 64 bit applications :)

What do you recommend for copying all from the HDD to the stick? A simple copy command or some other copying tool?

I used FC/2 because it is the most convenient tool for me to work with files.

Setup & Installation / Boot from USB stick

Boot from USB stick is not difficult now.

How to:
  1)  choose a letter for your boot USB stick - better use unused (for ex. F:);
  2)  create Compatibility Volume, Primary Partition on your USB stick with chosen letter;
       (it could be complicated but it is another matter)
  3)  format  F:  /fs:hpfs   or  format  F:  /fs:jfs   (both working fine)
  4)  sysinstx F:
  5)  you may need to create fresh installation  on HDD F: (I don't know another way how to change a disk letter in all settings, say, from C:  to  F:)
  6) copy everything from HDD F: (change letter for it before copying)  to your USB stick F:
  7) now you can boot from USB stick

!!!!  Once you have chosen and set letter for USB stick -  never change it  -  the letter is stored in a few places and not all programs change it properly.

This way I created  stick  to boot to command prompt  but one friend of mine made a full functional system (boots till desktop).

   - USB drivers from Lars Erdmann (at least usbdrv249); Lars, thank you very much for your drivers with this amazing ability.
   - OS/4 kernel (at least 6217).

Feedback is welcome.

If you see it as a hobby, then how much fun is it to wait for fixes that are never going to happen?

It is not always true. I have received fixes and new features very soon. Thank you very much, Lars. :)
