So is there a possibility for us to do some kind of a TRACE on this?

I have no idea how to do that.  In archive sub dir  you  can find previous ver  of pmmerge   -  you can try to find last good for your system.

My follow-up question was asking how else you think we could track down what's causing the problem?

pls suggest  what  should I do to repeat you case on my comp ?

So during the boot the normal BLUE screen right before transition to WPS happens is missing, the displays actually go black as if the video signal is cut off, then by the time both displays come back I go straight into the WPS Desktop. Normally this only happens after the BLUE screen pops up, a little clock-icon after and than WPS is up.

Weird, but OK so far.

I also recognized  some improvement during the boot.

The problem is that attempting to run Lucide right after (repeated this twice) gives me a non-responsive WPS. Only CAD-Helper gets me out of the problem, the Re-boot option that is.

It is not necessarily  a bug in pmmerge.  It is hard to say.

I haven't tried any other apps yet since I figured I would report this first and test any other specifics you might be interested in?

Nothing special, just observe  what has improved  and what has degraded.

One thing I notice is a 3 note beep from the system speaker right when the desktop appears at boot.

this is a signal from the test version  :)

No problems after restart so far. However I have no clue what pmmerge.dll is for.

tnx for testing.  pmmerge.dll  is a main dll which contains  code of Presentation Manager.

OS4User, I was wondering if you have heard or used NEWCALLS for OS/2 by Carsten Arnold and your opinion of this idea.

I have not seen it before and  just checked it.   And  so far agree with Rich - it does not have big sense now,  however can be easily added to  discussed pmmerge.

Any one brave to test ?  :)

  - a memory leak in a heap
  - missed serialization
  - access to freed memory
  - and many other small issues

Known bugs:
  -  none (so far)

1) Only keep the latest one.
2) Keep the main releases of Uniaud, not the development or preview releases.

keep all development or preview releases in archive sub dir

rumors said  that early builds of uniaud  supported multi channel sound  on some hardware. current uniaud has lost this ability  -  so old builds  may help to find out when this ability went away.

The Theseus program, when I click twice on the USBMON it generates a TRAP.
If someone is not produced any TRAP, let them tell me and I will tell them what I want.

could you try the same  on OS/4  ?

I have checked on OS/4   -  no traps here.

And my main system is going to be build on this and good price too !!!

ASUS PRIME Z590-P LGA 1200 Intel Z590 SATA 6Gb/s ATX Intel Motherboard

Be careful   with  new  mobo  -  most of them map little memory below the 4G border.
One more issue - missing BIOS or CSM mode  - OS/2 cannot boot at all.
Another issue - on-board net and sound are not supported in OS/2   and   no slots to insert add-on cards.

2) Is best to still use a X800 or X850 TX PE with SNAP accelerated. or a newer high-end card using the Panorama driver?

To my experience  X850  with SNAP   much faster  than any other add-on video card  with Panorama.

But video  integrated  into CPU (not just on-board chip) on Panorama - sometimes much faster than X850  with SNAP.

What is your setup with OS/2 if I may ask?

Of course you may,  but pls tell  exactly what do want  to know.
