Hardware / New ArcaOS USB driver.
« on: November 20, 2021, 11:25:59 pm »
I just installed the new available USB driver from ArcaOS.
At end of WPS start, my system got a TRAP 000D in module OS2DASD
(all time).
After investifation and because it is into OS2DASD, I remember having left my USB key plugged into my USB3 port.
I unplugged it and ArcaOS started fine !
All drivers/modules/wps at latest level (no update available under ANPM) - ArcaOS 5.0.2

It looks like a new bug!

rem: About the usb key
        Patriot Supersonic Rage Prime 1Tb USB 3.2 key (NTFS formatted but NTFS driver not installed)

Any idea about the culprit ?

Applications / Calibre for ebooks etc...
« on: November 12, 2021, 02:57:58 pm »

I don't know if it may be possible.
Do you think Calibre could be ported to OS/2 QT5 ?
(May be someone else experimented to transport QT5 appls could contact them! It looks to be a great application, using it a lot under windows...)   

More and more web site aren't working due to old firefox version.
I added an entry under about:config and now, I'm again able to see more sites, some using new functions aren't working like before but those just using access restriction due to firefox version are ok

Here is the added string:

Utilities / CURL 7.75.0
« on: April 24, 2021, 10:46:43 am »
Tried to install curl 7.75.0 using ANPM, It requires to install clamav 0.99 (crashing at db load - very high storage use) and other tools which seems having no relation with curl.
Do you have the same issue ?

Applications / CLAMAVGUI-GUI
« on: February 16, 2021, 09:34:28 pm »
For those using my ClamAV-GUI (rexx), since a few days, some of you could see error while updating database.
If you see this problem, go under ClamAV-GUI settings and uncheck the -no-dns option. That's all folks !
You can update freshclam config file with using " DatabaseMirror " only.

Web applications / QT5 simplebrowser
« on: November 09, 2020, 09:26:54 pm »
After download and add of all missing dlls, trying to start "sh" I have a "BUS ERROR" error message into the log file.
Any idea about this error ?

Applications / Firefox 45.9.0 and libtheora 1.1.1-1 not compatible
« on: September 16, 2020, 12:08:41 pm »
I just installed ffmpeg from netlabs-exp. During the installation, it installs dlls and one of them is the package libtheora 1.1.1-1 from netlabs-rep.
After installation and reboot, I start firefox but as soon I open a web link with available video/audio media, it closes.
Under popuplog.os2, i have:


I then renamed new theora*.dll and put back my older saved theora* dlls.
After reboot, firefox stays up and no more issue.

Either libtheora has a problem or firefox may need be upgraded to work with libtheora 1.1.1-1 build

Multimedia / Use of webcam
« on: May 20, 2020, 02:05:55 am »

I would like use my webcam under ArcaOS.
USBEHCD.SYS is installed and my webcam seen as Logitech, Inc.  Webcam C270
Now, how to display the webcam ? (video + sound)


Applications / ClamAV-GUI.
« on: May 10, 2020, 09:24:59 pm »
Working on next AVxCAT v2, I used VLC for tests and found some interaction with my ClamAV-GUI  build making some rxu functions not responding until VLC is down !

ClamAV-GUI update was since this finding, my highest priority.
To prevent this, I switched to use as default dll, rxutilex (rxu left as second option - available dll is automatically selected). With rxutilex, it works better and free of VLC interaction (rux.dll)

I suggest to migrate to ClamAV-GUI 3.6.3 and install rxutilex...;dll for those not having it (base installed under ArcaOS)
This build has many changes.... 

Best regards

PS: If you install  the widget (be improvement), dont forget to add the option to detect firewall is up or not (tested with IJFW)
e.g. paramters for ClamAV WG (daemon)
       clamavgui_path  beepon  clamav_virdb_path  maxday_noDBupdt  1   << 1 to check firewall up/down 

Some screen capture about widget and its dialog panel when [enter] on the widget icon.
And a second view about the older clamavm (scheduler for clamav-gui) after code change and already at alpha stage.

Applications / Shared storage
« on: April 25, 2020, 09:37:40 pm »
Hi !

Any idea why an older ffmpeg compiled with gcc 4.4.4 doesn't left any shared storage holes at close time while ffmpeg compiled with gcc 5.5.0 left about 20MB (all dlls size) of free unusable holes in the shared memory at close time ?

(FFmpeg or ffprobe)

Updt: problem occures as well with ffplay but in all cases only with dll's loaded above 512MB line  (when below, no issue)


Applications / CPUTEMP
« on: March 10, 2020, 12:46:16 pm »
Hi I downloaded lates SL "SystemLoad"
In the package, CPUTEMP.WPI is provided but trying to install it, I've got a warning icon due already installed CPU temperature API at 2.0.3 while the one in the package is 2.0.2 !

Is there a raison about this regression ?


Applications / ApacheOpenOffice 417 Quick Start
« on: February 12, 2020, 11:41:13 am »
I tried to put AOO quick start into start up folder or ArcaOS start up folder (ffturbo and lunchpad already into ArcaOs start up folder).
In both cases, I have following message at boot time. any idea ?


Programming / Trim command
« on: January 25, 2020, 10:22:35 am »
SSD may working slower after some time according how the SSD is used.

Do you know if ArcaOs or someone else  could implement a TRIM command under OS/2 ?
I found following link telling about TRIM

But I do not having the needed skills....
