About your scrolling, I can't help as I use a USB mouse.  For drilling down I just double click on the folder and put up with lots of windows, but if I'm working on files I just use the FC/2 program as a one screen file handler.  Using it means I rarely  have to just open folders directlly.  Just a thought.

Mail-News / Re: PMMail and filters - this one is not working...why?
« on: June 11, 2022, 05:14:32 pm »
In PMMail 3.25 I just use the built in filter builder under account.
Quick and works for me.  Example attached.

Thanks for recommendations.  I'll work on it some and read the references.

Applications / PMMail email address db messed up. How to fix it?
« on: May 15, 2022, 04:09:30 pm »
My PMMail 3.25 Address Book is totally messed up and I can't get it fixed.  If I move an entry it gets duplicated and I can't get the entries sorted.  It has a .db file format and I don't seem to be able to fix it with programs I have.  Do I have to just delete the file and re-enter all the names & email addresses?  I have over 150 entries and that doesn't seem very efficient.
Any suggestions?  Thanks for any help.

Condolences and take all the time you need.  Family always more important than our business/hobby.

Downloaded the exp rpm and followed instructions.  It WORKS!!  I can run a lot of sites I couldn't do on FF and so far it's only crashed on the Wall St Journal.   It would be nice if the install instructions mentioned exactly how & which files should/could be loaded high.
But overall it's great for Arca users and I am so happy now  :) :) :)

After I installed the update my sound has died.  Any suggestions for how to get it back.  Is there an easy way to go back to prior version of XWP?

Very fast!  I've got a Ryzen and it's very fast.  No problems with CPU, just getting right speed on peripherals, Sound, etc.
Current ARCA very good though for install.

Setup & Installation / Re: Booting with NVMe - Success
« on: June 21, 2021, 05:59:18 pm »
I had a failure to boot on AS Rock AB350M-HDV Motherboard with NVME.  Got help from David Azarewicz and realized it was a BIOS issue.  I then switched to an ASUS Prime B450M-A motherboard and it boots fine, so the problem was just the original MB.
Thanks to Arca and David  Azarewicz for their great work.

Setup & Installation / Re: Booting with NVMe

Back to my original post, I got my NVME SSD installed and seen by Arca 5.  I did the install as directed in the 20 point wiki document and Arca installed the base files, and then when I rebooted to get the rest of the install, the NVME disk won't boot.  I get a message:
"2001: Boot sector read error" which is better than my first attempts, but still not great. 
I can see the NVME disk and read data off it and even formated a data partition and can use it, but just can't get it to boot. Any further suggestions welcome.

I got the NVME drive on my AS Rock B-450 and installed the NVME, and using a USB drive installed Arca5.0.6 with the NVME.add in the Config.sys following the wiki directions.  If I boot from another SSD I can see the NVME boot drive and files, but when I try to boot it nothing happens.  The BIOS sees it, but I just get a "_"  flickering on the screen and nothing happens. 
Any suggestions welcome.  I'm wondering if it's a bios setting, but since it's listed on the device list I have no other ideas, so any suggestions welcome.
Thanks
Matt

Thanks Miezko for the tip to fix my VLC\2 from crashing at the end of every mp4 video.  It locked up the whole computer and needed a reboot.  Now it works great.   Thanks again.
