Hallo,
with IBM Kernel we can switch off cpu cores on boot (acpi.psd /maxcpu=2). Is there an equivalent switch for the os4 kernel.
best regards

Applications / Re: VirtualBox 5.0.51 networking
« on: February 12, 2021, 04:54:37 pm »
Hi Ivan,

it should be no problem to connect your XP VM to your NAS in your local network. I have ArcaOS 5, with virtualbox 5.0.61. and my Windows XP VM can mount shares on a samba server. In our XP configuration setup networking as NAT (and not NAT-networking), choose as network adapter PCnet-FAST III and check "cable connected". In your Windows XP you have to install the correct driver, and than your VM schould receive 10.0.2.15/24 automatically. Maybe your XP guest cannot resolv the name of your NAS, so use the IP of the NAS or create entrys in the file C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts. My samba server connection is established with the following command

C:>net use Z:  \\fileserver\home\bernhard /user:openit\bernhard <password>
The command completed successfully

The machine fileserver has the IP 192.168.197.106.

best regards
Bernhard

Networking / Re: OpenSSH_7.7p1 tcgetattr: Invalid argument
« on: January 24, 2021, 07:45:06 pm »
Hi Rick,

I have used an openssh wpi package

http://hobbes.nmsu.edu/download/pub/os2/apps/internet/telnet/openssh-5.3p1-bin.zip

which is working well; the openssh packages installed with yum do not work correctly.

Networking / OpenSSH_7.7p1 tcgetattr: Invalid argument
« on: December 03, 2020, 10:24:43 am »
Hi,
I have updated my rpm packages and so openssh-clients version 7.7p1 was installed. This version has some problems:

Code: [Select]
[C:\]ssh -V
OpenSSH_7.7p1, OpenSSL 1.0.2t  10 Sep 2019

[C:\]ssh prometheus
root@prometheus's password:

Process dumping was disabled, use DUMPPROC / PROCDUMP to enable it.

The external process was cancelled by a Ctrl+Break or another process.

The problem is the line "tcgetattr: Invalid argument". I have an older Version as OpenSSH_5.3p1 as wpi installed; this version does not show the error and is working proper. Is there a solution for version 7.7p1.

best regards

I noticed that new BASEDEV drivers (USB 12.05+) from Arca do not display diagnostic messages when booting with the OS / 4 kernel and not load. Perhaps the problem is only in the driver loader itself. This gives us hope that the problem can be quite easily fixed.

I  have placed an bug report on AN bug tracker. Will see what they are saying. I will post the answer.

That is the answer from AN:

Quote
Regardless what any other kernel (legal or illegal) may offer, Arca Noae has no intention of providing support for non-Arca Noae kernels.

If the request is that we add support for a feature not currently implemented in the ArcaOS kernel, that is a separate matter, and such requests are accepted for consideration.

As described here, the configuration on your system is completely unsupported by Arca Noae (not just the USB stack).

Our best recommendation is to use a legal, supported kernel, specifically, the one supplied with ArcaOS.

(I, too, use a browser in a box" solution under VBox 1.6 on ArcaOS, which works just fine for running small Linux distros, with Arca Noae kernels 14.200 and 14.201.)

The case is closed by Lewis.

Hi ivan

I have this line in config.sys which may be relevant

REM ***** Next line required due to lbcx update versions causing problems with VirtualBox
SET LIBCX_HIGHMEM=2


Regards

Pete

Hi pete,
I have "SET LIBCX_HIGHMEM=2" in my config.sys but most time the virtual machnes will not start. With OS4 kernel I can run any version of OS/2 (2.0 , 2.1, 3.0, 4.0 and ArcaOS); windows xp  and windows 7; most linuxes are working too; I have to use 32bit linux versions; I write this answer in falkon browser on Arch32 Linux - this is my "browser in a box" vm on ArcaOS. Sometimes I get it starting after several tries with ArcaOS (IBM) kernel but mostly I am using the OS4 kernel (because of the vt-x extension).
best regards
Bernhard

With usb version 12.05 and usb version 12.06 usb support is lost with OS4 kernel. Till usb version 12.04 it worked well with OS4 kernel and with IBM kernel. 12.05 and 12.06 are still working on IBM kernel, without no problem. I have tried this on two laptops, and both are showing the same behavior. One is a Thinkpad W520 and one a Thinkpad T42p.

Logs said that USB stack  is not loading for some reason. It is  hard to explain,  hope it will be fixed  in  12.07.  I am using USB stack from Lars and it works fine for me with any kernels.

I have made two kernel logs on the t42p, because this one has a serial adapter.

You can get the log without comport once the system is booted,  [copy kernlog$ mylog.txt]

Looking through your logs, I would suggest:
- put BASEDEV=USBD.SYS line before BASEDEV=USB?HCD.SYS  lines
- check the list  in HowTo file to make sure you have tuned up your settings properly (THREADS, PROCESSES, etc)

usb 12.4 and older AN usb drivers are also working with OS4 kernel, 12.5 breaks that. The bad thing is that without usb 12.6 I have no usb 3 and without OS4 kernel I have no working virtualbox for os/2.
BTW: USBD.SYS is before all USB?HCD.SYS statements in my config.sys and the settings are properly choosen.

Hi Martin,

the usbxhcd driver works well on a thinkpad w520 laptop, with Arca kernel. But with os4 kernel the complete usb stack 12.5 and 12.6 will not work anymore. You see none of the usb devices with this versions; version 12.4 works well with the os4 kernel

best regards
Bernhard

« on: November 25, 2019, 02:05:31 pm »
Hi Martin, I think the most important drivers are USB 3.X drivers. And it would be nice, if we can get beta versions of the drivers developed by arcanoae. We are waiting quite a long time and we are only hearing "we are on track ...". So public betas were nice and would help even if everybody knows that beta versions are not perfect. But everybody could see the progress.

Networking / Re: OS/2 to Ubuntu: Any options other than Samba?
« on: November 23, 2019, 04:33:35 pm »
Hi, another possibility besides SMB, NTFS and FTP (but this is insecure) is SSH (or SFTP). NetDrive provides SFTP plugin and every linux machine speaks ssh. I have used this, for connecting to MacOSX High Sierra, because High Sierra does not have an ftp server anymore and the apple smb is a little bit strange.

HI, thx for your help. It took some time because my primary OS/2 (ArcaOS) pc, which is a laptop (thinkpad w520) has no serial connector. So I used my old one, which has a docking station with serial connector. Here is the trap:

Code: [Select]
getPhysDevParam DevHandle 0x0009 rc 0x00000000


Trap 13 (0DH) - General Protection Fault ebe8, GDT

With an older os4 kernel (svn5523) I got the following crash, see attached picture.
