Setup & Installation / Target 64Tb of memory, not one less.
« on: June 23, 2024, 10:57:19 am »
For the future and other follies
I have doubts, I read that the OS/2 could manage in Voice.
"In theory the 386 processor allows for 64 terabyte of virtual memory."

This is something that has been around my head for some time.
And it will not be that the maximum theoretical memory is always 4GB, but that it rotates in almost endless cycles, so that for example
You have 13GB = (4GBX3)+1GB available, it will show you 1GB, but that 1GB, if spent it appears as 4GB, are spent and ... re -empecing.
If this were so, it would be good to find that number that multiplies by 3 or whatever. Somehow I think I should
Another example, it can be like if you enter a building, on the ground floor you have 4gb,
 but if you go up to the first floor you have another 4gb = 8gb keep going up floors and imagine a skyscraper
  of 100 floors = 400gb

It could also be that the memory begins at the top of the building, and goes down the way,
 without the need for a floor number. Until it runs out.

If someone would tell you today, create a 64Tb memory, and you can only direct 4gb, how would you do it?

Could it be that we are only seeing the memory that is on one floor of the building?

To help understand the memory I use the freemem.exe program, the information it provides is not valid.
But it can help to understand what I say, and also the operation of the applications, how much memory they use,
When they use it, when an application is loading, when it is dead, etc ... in real time.
This program is freemem.exe very old, and I have seen it rotate many times.
And everything continues to work. By watching it rotate I mean having 100mb of memory and going through 4gb,
 and then 3.8g....

Could it be so?

What if we are putting memory limitations where they do not exist?
I mean: If you create a program and tell it to look at the memory and close it if it's insufficient,
why not let the system decide whether or not it's insufficient.
I leave you a screenshot, you can see used 2297mb, and simultaneously 2819mb free according to Vmem = 5116mb
Here I am using the memlinit in 4095, and because it won't let me put twice as much on it. Limits!!!!
All run nice.

Applications / Help with Rexx and Theseus
« on: May 05, 2024, 02:04:49 pm »
I wanted from rexx to be able to see the physical memory, as it shows it on the screen.
I need either the command or the information about it.
Similar to   call RT2GetLinMemMap but with physicalmemory, no linear memory.

I wanted to make an http connection, but I get this error 58. Photo attached.
Should I open a tickect, or am I doing something wrong?
I think it's weird those slashes in front of the http, but...

Setup & Installation / Code page 850 in arcaos51 and in Arcaos508 change?
« on: January 03, 2024, 06:23:30 pm »
I have a question, I get some pages of different codes in Arcaos51, to the ones given to me by Arcaos508.
Have they changed? Or it's some glitch in my system.

Applications / Do you have any update of Thunderbird?
« on: May 24, 2023, 09:47:44 am »
Ultimately it happens to us that we cannot send emails with Thunderbird to Gmail accounts. Is there any solution for this?
With Dooble you can access Gmail and send but it is not what I am looking for.

Setup & Installation / Virtual memory, a curious phenomenon
« on: January 03, 2023, 10:32:49 am »
There is a strange result in virtual memory, depending on where the Swapper position is defined in the config.
In my case if I have the config.sys:
after start the system:
[C:\]mem /v

Total physical memory:      3 895 MB
Accessible to system:       2 999 MB
Additional (PAE) memory:      896 MB

Resident memory:              129 MB
Available virtual memory:     514 MB   <------

Available process memory:
  Private low memory:         373 MB
  Private high memory:      2 240 MB
  Shared low memory:          310 MB
  Shared high memory:       2 211 MB

 But if I create a new unit in 512MB memory,with Ramdisk, unit L: \, HPFS type, and define in the config.sys as:
 SWAPPATH=L:\ 0 4096
 [C:\]mem /v

Total physical memory:      3 895 MB
Accessible to system:       2 999 MB
Additional (PAE) memory:      896 MB

Resident memory:              129 MB
Available virtual memory:   3 321 MB  <------

Available process memory:
  Private low memory:         373 MB
  Private high memory:      2 240 MB
  Shared low memory:          310 MB
  Shared high memory:       2 211 MB

It seems that the 512MB is more important, than anything else, so that it occurs, that change.
On the other hand I do not see any change in the rest of the operation of the system, but it took a short time of evidence.


Storage / USB3.0 copy speed
« on: October 28, 2022, 07:43:39 pm »
I usually make very few copies to USB, but yesterday I made a copy to USB 3.0 with FC 240, 2.9GB in approximately 14 minutes at a speed of 3,407k. With 3521k tips, I took a photo because I was a little surprised. But when going to restore it, copying it to another computer was exaggeratedly slow.
I have intended to replicate it on the origin computer and I can't.
You can tell me if that speed is normal or abnormal.


Applications / Dbexpert and lotusw4 I can't install them in arca507
« on: October 25, 2022, 12:36:39 pm »
After reinstalling a new system completely, it does not let me install either of these two applications.
 It seems that it fails to unpack the files.

In the case of the Dbexpert, who had it previously installed, modifying the config.Sys, lets me open the application,
 and it works, but it does not let me open the ODBC DRIVERS.So I have no access to the tables.

Any suggestion?

It is the first time this happens to me.

Normally I install the Dbexpert at the beginning before updating everything, but on this occasion I did it to the setback.


Setup & Installation / I think I've found the magic number
« on: October 22, 2022, 09:44:17 pm »
The edm2 web site :
#define ORD_DOS32PERFSYSCALL            976

This number is 31.25 pwr 2 = 976.5625 (I do not know, but maybe in an era with two processors, it could be valid, But they did not include the decimal part.)
I have tried many numbers and there is one that is especially good.

         31.25 pwr 6 = 931322574.615478067200

If defined in the config.sys (only one line)
SET ORD_DOS32PERFSYSCALL=931322574.615478067200
SET ORD_DOS32PERFSYSCALL=931322.574615478067200
SET ORD_DOS32PERFSYSCALL=931.322574615478067200
SET ORD_DOS32PERFSYSCALL=0.93132257461547806720

The position in the config.sys will be after the line:

I understand that they all work, but in some computers will work better one number or another.
Maybe it that the number that shows more available memory after booting is the best option for that computer,
 but this I have little tested

I have been able to be with the Dooble, playing a music video for more than an hour, without it closing.
Without touching it, when I touch it first cease the image and then the sound ceases.
But it didn't shut down. I can change the flap, but not on operational.
The dbexpert also works better.


Applications / Seamonkey 2.42.2 SRE Mem Patch
« on: January 01, 2022, 03:54:03 pm »
I have been trying that SeaMonkey did not close me. Always with Standard Memory.

And I started patching the memory.
Each time works better.

I have already generated above 3000 poke lines, which if there would not be a pattern I understand
It would be impossible to work.

What I think it happens is that the exceptq program shows me some error points that
They are found in 5B, and the only thing I do is change the 5B for 1, A6 or 238

What I believe is that the system when it is located with a value 5b is slowing down so much that it fails.
But when changing it for another value like 1 the fastest I think, but not the best.
The A6 when they are errors that may appear on the screen. The AD value will also be valid.
And 238 when errors affect sound.

The Open Journal ver101 program, works OK, showing the text of the months. This program helped me find the values A6, AD, as valid.
 The EPM has been very helpful.
 Sometimes everything worsen, but when it continued improved.

I hope it serves them.
I attached the patch, Happy and prosperous 22

Applications / Librecad and other ports
« on: November 09, 2021, 10:01:24 pm »
Thank you very much for carrying this application, I find it very comfortable not to have to start WIN to be able to use a CAD program in OS/2.
I just have a question, because you do not put the icon if you have it in the folders.
The other program that I wanted to test is the OpenJournal, but it does not let me open it. I do not see any error file.


Programming / QBASIC POKE IN REXX is possible?
« on: November 05, 2021, 08:22:23 pm »
I wanted to know if there is an instruction similar to QBASIC Poke in Rexx

POKE &H00006281, 238 in rexx =   ...


Applications / pk-s10.bas
« on: October 13, 2021, 05:16:37 pm »
This application serves to improve the sound when new windows are opened in the browser. The improvement is approximately 90%, there is still little NOISE, very little, especially when running cmd s in the background.
It also means that by having a lot of memory consumed and closing applications, it does not increase memory consumption and they close quickly.
I hope it helps you.
I like this more now:
swappath = c: \ 0 2048
The first value always zero, the second 4096 is fine too.

Lines 9 to 69 are for sound enhancement
Lines 78 and 79 free memory when closing programs, they do not consume more memory.

Code: [Select]
DATA long a
PRINT "ejecutando pk-S00..."
REM swap 2048 2048
FOR a = 1 TO 100000
REM no quitar la linea print o se generara el error wifi on off

Setup & Installation / A question of fonts
« on: June 13, 2021, 08:53:11 pm »
1- if I select the font MARKSYM it does not show me anything, I came to think that I had damaged inis, but I installed a new system and it did not show anything either. It's correct like this?

2 - how can I install a ttf font. I have tried drag and drop and it tells me that it is installed. But I'm not sure if I got it right. In the name it gives me the character of the Greek letter pi.
13/06/21 16:23         62.628    355 a---  MarketSans-SemiBold-WebS.ttf
This is the font that I downloaded from the internet, and what I understand is not for os2 or is it?
