As Neil said, wait for AOS 5.1, install in UEFI mode and use a graphical bootmanager. I use rEFInd for UEFI, works well, graphical so should work for you.

That's weird. Does it happen instantly when you turn the monitor on? It should be standard VGA that Air Boot uses.
Do you have many partitions? If not it wouldn't be too hard to use it blind. If so, could you temporarily use a video card or a different monitor to set up Air Boot and learn where the partitions are to use it blind?
I guess currently OS/2 is installed on C: so no Air Boot. What about using the BIOS to change the boot order? Most have menu for boot order where you could choose HD0, HD1 etc as well as USB, network, CDRom and such.

While it likely won't help with Firefox, need a lot more work then just Rust working, early Rust was very unstable with new incompatible regular releases.
What it will help is other programs that are compiled in Rust getting ported. Seems Rust is getting very popular and even small utilities are being ported to it.
Will also have to see how well it works on our 32 bit platform. Even current Mozilla doesn't compile if I have $TMPDIR pointed at an HPFS volume as at least one .S (assembly stage) temporary file is over 2GB's and likely it is the same file where GCC sometimes dies due to lack of memory. Sounds like Rust is more demanding then C++

Same error with 9.2.0 and further study shows it is a bad merge :(
Have to fix and hope history isn't too far gone.

Have to check if it still compiles with 9.2.0 in case of a merge failure, which is doubtful. I did find fixes for assertions with GCC 6 which might apply, starting from here, https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1245783 it's a shame they did a "won't fix for 45ESR"

OTOH, I forgot that I uploaded the 9.4.0 build of TB :) And I screwed up the name.
Now I'm having problems building. Did a bunch of merging as I had to many branches and repulled Mozilla and then forgot to do the other stuff needed to make SM build which left me staring at a never before seen error, especially since I didn't pass --enable-extensions to configure
Code: [Select]
3:50.91 configure: error: Unrecognized extension provided to --enable-extensions: inspector.
Now building FF, I'm reminded that I didn't restore extensions like inspector and Chatzilla nor rerun autoconf a couple of places. Still a couple of things missing, thanks to backups they're being replaced so should have a 10.4.0 build of Firefox then SM eventually, plus the source at Sourceforge buildable.

IIRC, Midnight Commander has X11 dependencies and some other shortcomings, for sure no large file support. Whereas File Commander is a native OS/2 program that has been ported to Windows and Linux so fits into OS/2 well, things like clipboard support which IIRC was lacking in MC.

It's a good idea to install the debug packages for libcn and libcx, even if for other issues you might come across.
It is possible the GCC 10.x build is more stable due to GCC fixes, they seem pretty similar here.

Looks like something went wrong while the JavaScript engine was doing garbage collection (compacting memory), used to happen a lot, seldom now. The code is pretty complex and beyond my capabilities. Could also be a problem within libcn but without that debug data...

Yea, I hunted around a bit, seems to be a few decomp.exe programs out there but none the correct one. Even Googling the file signature came up empty. File just says data and it is pretty good at figuring out file types.
It seems the correct decomp.exe came with the original DOS tcpip package and the one we're looking at is a fixpak.

I found the same, it is the wrong decomp.exe. Since it is a bat file that calls it, it must be a DOS program.

Wonder about the 1.x versions of TCPIP, https://winworldpc.com/product/ibm-tcp-ip-for-os-2/1x, I'm not set up for the disk images.

ArcaOS 5.1 improves the situation in UEFI mode. It uses the improved DOS support of it. The disadvantage is that with UEFI you have to wipe the hard disk and older tools do not work. They continue to work for the MBR area within an UEFI partition. OS/2 doesn't see the UEFI partitions. Another disadvantage is that 5.1 is not released yet.

That's only true (the wiping) if you want/need to use GPT partitioning and even then you don't need to wipe usually, you can use any partitioning tool to create a GPT partition (under 2TB) to install AOS. Of course there are always some problems with Windows playing nice with others and documenting all this is unfinished as far as I know and needs to be done before release.
A regular MBR system works fine in UEFI mode though you do need an ESP partition which can be as small as 64MiB so some free space needed.
The DOS/WinOS2 support is very good in UEFI mode

Personally, I use File Commander for things like a cmd line text editor, file manager etc. Shareware but no nags etc, http://silk.apana.org.au/fc.html

Open the Drives Properties, go to Window and on the first page click Display existing window and on the 2nd page choose the automatic close folder you want?
