Setup & Installation / Re: ArcaOS WinOS/2 printers?
« on: July 30, 2020, 10:22:41 pm »
With the newer Arca 5.0.5 CUPS printer install it's possible to install lots of specific printers, but they are then ARCA printers.  If you need to specifically boot Windows and use the printer that's a different issue.  So to help we need to know which program, which file format, which OS you want to boot, and exactly which printer you want to print to.  That data would help us give you some assistance.

Setup & Installation / Re: How to have quantity and quality of memory

Any idea how this interacts with a large RAM disk, and since you can't use the RAM disk in your swap path, would a smaller RAM disk work better with larger swap file?

Thanks. AOO now works again.   Only thing it installed this time vs several previous attempts was " libxslt " and I don't know how that didn't get put in before when I tried.  Appreciate the feedback.  I also donated a bit more to BitWise for the AOO project.

I had AOO 4.1.7 working, but after recent ANPM dll updates it quit working and I get the message Neil mentioned at the beginning of this thread.  I tried all the suggestions and it's still not working.  Anyone have any recent suggestions?
I'm really stuck without my AOO to work with.

Hardware / Re: USB 3 - ArcaOS - Hardware Reports

I am using a KVM from AirLink 101 for Keyboard and mouse with 1 PS/2 port on each computer and a splitter cable for the mouse & keyboard.  The Arca 5.0.5 USB 3 is working fine on my 2 machines.  I have a separate HDMI splitter for video as the new MBs don't have VGA outputs that work for me.  The HDMI shifts automatically when I turn on a different computer, but also has a small remote.  Very happy with Arca!

Just updated a  Arca 5.04 computer to an ASRock B450 -HDV r4.0 motherboard Ryzen 5-00 with 8 gig Ram. Video is a VisionTek card with 2gig Ram & Radeon 5400. Started OK and network connects right away. I use PS/2 KB & Mouse, so OK.  No USB at present. Made a 4 gig Ram Drive (G:) which works.
Haven't checked sound yet.  Airboot seems to have an issue on an SSD, but a metal SATA boots fine.

Does anyone know what all the AMD bios settings are for? Is hyperthreading OK.  I am trying to turn them on & off to see what works, but any help appreciated.

Here with Arca 5.04 I have Firefox ESR 45.5 .   It came labeled 45.9, not sure how.
Hopefully Falkon soon on QT5 for Arca.

Mail-News / Re: Advice needed
« on: April 01, 2020, 03:54:43 am »
If you want the email on different computers/tablets and they start at various times then you would have a hard time using POP or IMAP to download and delete mail from any one computer.  I think you would need a fixed "last" computer to delete the mail from the ISP and then a routine to have it deleted from all the other computers.  Have you considered storing it on a NAS device as a central repository.  I've been able to use one for data I use under ARCA and Windows on different computers.  Just a thought.

Applications / Re:Arca Noae update service is worth it!
« on: February 21, 2020, 04:42:43 pm »
I have to agree that getting support for problems and work on updates like UEFI & USB3 is worth every penny I spend.  And sending extra $$ to BitWise, etc is a good investment in the future of OS/2 - eCS -Arca !!

Some sort of Wireless would be nice, but not as important now with good Virtual Machines.

As far as recovering data from a JFS partition/volume I had good luck with JRescuer by Pavel Shtemenko.  It's worth the small cost for time saved if you don't have a full current backup.
