Sorry for not mentioning your efforts.

Not mine efforts, the efforts of our community here in D A CH (Germany, Austria, Switzerland) was what I meant.

Based on the amount of email addreses OS/2 VOICE has collected via Paypal for donations I would say maybe between 5 and 10% of the OS/2 community has donated. The rest download free of charge....
I don't do Paypal, paid direct, so be careful with your assumptions.

Its not an assumption sadly. Do you know how much money for BWW came in via OS/2 VOICE for the total QT project ?
2019 25.400,00 Euro we sponsored BWW with.

2020 report is still to be published, but we collected 20.600,00 Euro over 2020.

Effectively VOICE is the pushing locomotive behind collecting funding for BWW.
We gladly help BWW!


That makes me wonder, Roderick. I hope you do not count the Donations made by all the attendences,Thomas Müller and me during the OS/2 user Meetings, the collections I started on OS2.Org (the german community) and the money I donated myself as "Donated via OS2VOICE". That would not be true.

I would guess this collections here named "from us" should have bring some amount of 10.000 - 13.000 Euro to bww.

You are not the only locomotion that put a lot of efforts in it, and it is some kind of frustrating and demotivating to read this.

The New Browser is NOT an "OS2VOICE ONLY" Project!

I would say, I personally donated during the last almost 3 1/2 years a fair amount of money, donated some hardware and collected money with Thomas Müller together during our last User Meetings in Cologne (this is NOT fishing for complements).

I may be one of the minority of users whom still use OS/2 instead of ArcaOS (I would and do advise everyone asking me to use ArcaOS) and what makes me thinking about the browser is this:

It is recommended to use the 14.202 Kernel, this Kernel is (for sure for some good reason) permitted only to use in combination with ArcaOS.

The conclusion as for now is for me: The new Browser will not (reliable if at all) run on OS/2 or eComStation Installations. I wonder if in the future the same will happen to a possible NVMe Driver i.e. ArcaNoae has to decide on its own, while having to follow the contract given/made with IBM.

But, will ArcaOS be the only future for OS/2? I am still very happy to use the AN Software Subscription for Drivers to have an up to date Warp 4.52 without ANPM (this is my special vision of using OS/2).

Latest 20211016 works well on my Lenovo S12 Yoga, but still only the lack of some controls.

By the way - i noticed that PM123 Version 1.41 does show covers of the Sounds played, see scond picture upper right corner - nice feature  :)

For the notes:

Sound in WINOS2 does work on my S1 Yoga 12 with the combination of Pauls 20210103 and the winos2-audio-19980501 driver from hobbes.  ;)

You can grab the Beta Driver from here:

Please follow the included readme to install.

Nice to have sound in WINOS2 as well  :)

Hi Paul,

Happy new year! Tested the 5.4.86-20210102-debug on my S1 Yoga 12. Works well.

But - as with all driver files before, only three controls are enabled, I guess it should be more of them.

Attach a picture and the list file.

Well done!

Hi Paul,

20201230c works like a charm
20201230d works like a charm (attached files unimix card and unimix list)

Downloaded Theseus from hobbes (never used this program before, afair  ;D ) and attach as you guided with 20201228

All the best!!

Hi, as it need more time to get the T480 to run again I meanwhile tested with my S1 Yoga 12 from Lenovo:

Version 20201228 works like a charm!

Lenovo Thinkpad S1 Yoga 12
Intel core i7 5th Generation
Card info for adapter 0:
  num: 0
  id: PCH
  driver: HDA-Intel
  name: HDA Intel PCH
  longname: HDA Intel PCH at 0xf1204000 irq 22
  mixer: Conexant CX20751/2
  componenets: HDA:14f1510f,17aa503e,00100100

ArcaOS 5.06

Great work, Paul!!

I guess the "b" with the attached files is not right, I downloaded it from the link from OS4Users latest post.

Will try the 20121229b now and report. More information needed?

Hope this helps!


EDIT: 20201229b crashes with trap, See attachment please.

EDIT: 20201229 crashes with trap as well, See attachment please.

Switch back to 20201228.

Quick update:

I built a driver based on the latest 4.19.x kernel - unfortunately I'm getting a TRAP 000E during boot that I need to debug.

I updated the code to 5.4.x - the code is compiling but I have around 10 missing symbols of functions that need to be added to the linux 'kernel'.

Hopefully I can resolve those over the next couple of days and see where we land. I keep hoping that in bumping the code levels things will start working :)

I'll have increased free time over the next couple of weeks over the Christmas/New Year break so will hopefully make some progress.



Hi Paul,

good news!! I will try to get the T480 to run with OS/2 - ArcaOS  over the Christmas/New Year break as well, so I hopefully will be able to test and support. It depends on only one LCD cable that I expect to be delivered since the beginning of December from China. So it may happen, if not, I will come back with that hardware as soon as possible.

All the best!


Due to the Corona Virus Thomas Müller and me had to cancel the User Meeting in Cologne 2020 that had been scheduled on December the 12th 2020.

While we get the prepaid amount of money back from the Youth Hostel Thomas and me decided to donate it directly to Bitwise Works, so we round up the sum to 400 Euro and I just paid to Bitwise for the QT5 Development and to support their excellent work.

The next meeting in 2021 is already fixed: Saturday, November th 6th 2021, as allways in Cologne, same place  :)

All the best to all of you!

Hardware / Re: Multi core CPUs - how many are running > 4?

The T480 run with 4 Cores and 4 Threads very stable, CPU monitor showing 8 cores. ACPI quickly shuts down 7 from Version 3.14 on. Once needed it reenables as much as needed and shuts/throttle them down again once no more power is needed. Worked like a charm.
