libcx is up to date as far as netlabs-rel is concerned. 0.7.3-1 is the version number.

I created the users with smbpasswd.exe, and now the server generates traps on startup. I zipped all the log files and trap files.

I'd recommend any modern PC with a slot for your video card. The CPU can be Intel or AMD. PCie to NVMe adapters work fine with Arca Noae's NVMe driver, but I recommend a newer computer with built-in NVMe support. There are no reasonable modern video choices that have SNAP support.

Using a modern monitor with VGA or DVI is sub-optimal. DisplayPort and to a lesser extent HDMI lead to higher quality video. It would be nice to have a video driver and audio driver that could support DisplayPort and HDMI.

I tried the 4.19 build you suggest, and the traps are gone, but there is no response for client or browsing. I can't authenticate with "Samba Users and Groups".

Looking at logs, most are 0 length, but two are not. I'm not sure what the logs are trying to tell me.

Thanks Paul, for making the samba port. I'm looking forward to updating my samba here.

I copied the 4.18 files over my mostly working Samba Server Version 3.6.25 for OS/2 based systems 1.3.0 (Refresh) The smb.conf file is unchanged.

When I access a share with my ArcaOS 5.1 SMB client, I get two exceptq trap files from SMBD.EXE.

Thanks. The smbpasswd.exe from Paul's build referenced above does not crash. The resulting password is used correctly by samba.

I have a mostly working Samba 3 installation using the files from ArcaOS 5.1. Can I upgrade that using Paul's build?

Is it as simple as copying the new files over the old samba directory?

I tried to run smbpasswd.exe from Paul's build named

It wants GNUTLS30.DLL, but can't find it.

yum provides GNUTLS30.DLL didn't lead to a pot of gold.

Both of Mark's servers are old. The new client demands more security, and perhaps the servers aren't offering it. You can reduce the client demand for security by adding this line to smb.conf

 client min protocol = NT1

At Warpstock this year, we discussed the progress for WiFi support. I don't know Arca Noae plans, but it sounds like it isn't going to be soon.

The problem is too few developers, so if someone reading this feels like implementing WiFi sooner, contact Arca Noae about that. I would be a welcome feature.

When I install samba, it makes some beeping noises. I now believe these noises signify the creation of exceptq Trap files. If I run smbpasswd.exe, it frequenly traps. Occasionally it works. I believe this is why it is difficult to get a set of working users and groups, which Samba needs to do its work.


ArcaOS sees 1.4 GB of RAM while there ar 57GB for the RAM Disk available.

This is the lowest amount of RAM I have seen yet. Every generation has less than the one before it. It would be interesting how Dooble will function on this system.

I tested a Lenovo X13 laptop with a Ryzen 5 Pro 6650U CPU and got 1840.50 MiB

This USB to parallel adapter works with OS/2.

The others don't have OS/2 support, but may work. I have no idea how to get one of these. I'd try eBay.

Setup & Installation / Re: getting chkdsk fix errors on C (Vm Virtualbox)

Make a copy of the VDI using the host operating system.
Add the copy to your Virtual Machine
OS/2 will mount the 2nd C: drive, but LVM will assign another drive letter.
Chkdsk the second drive using the assigned letter.

Could Cloudfare be preventing as a scam? It's name looks too similar to, which is an award-winning climate website. If you are selling a sweetened soda, you cannot call it Coca-Cola-Drink. does display, even on Firefox 45, which seems odd. Why would they display their own website, but not that of a paying customer?

Cloudfare's web page says they protect against threats, and a websites with a fake names are a legitimate threat. Not that the website is a threat. It's just an opinion website. Everyone is entitled to an opinion. The name of the website does seem a bit questionable.

Incidentally, does not display on Dooble or on Firefox45. Cloudfare does not seem to be involved.

Programming / Re: Installing VisualAge 4 on ArcaOS 5.x

I converted almost all of the Feature Installer products to simple REXX command line installs. But not, apparently, this one. I think there is more going on here than simple Feature Installer. I remember getting it installed on eCS, but I didn't like it, so I guess I never tried on ArcaOS.

Feature Installer has clifi, which allows command line install on most apps.
