Greetings and GOOD LUCK for your presentation Sigurd! : )

Unfortunately beginning is 02am DE GMT+1, so... too early for me to watch it live.
Question: Will these streams be saved, so one can watch them later on?

9 Uhr 45 EST = 15 Uhr 45 Deutscher Zeit (CET), nicht 2 Uhr 45 ;-)

(Not sure anyway is reading/cares about these updates, but just trying to keep people informed on the status of this work)

Hi Paul,

I am very happy to see your progress and I could just repeat the words of Ianmanners, wich I can confirm in anyway!

To have sound on a Laptop with native ArcaOS/ OS/2 that was build in 2018 is great and with that you keep my motivation to still play around with OS/2 alive!!

All the best and thank you again!

Note: This build will NOT produce sound on HDA hardware....

However, I found some missing 'glue' and made progress. I still have some code wrapped around '#ifndef TARGET_OS2' statements to prevent traps....

What I'm interested in is whether the mixer is correctly detected or not - in particular for Sigurd as his hardware should now be supported.

I'll keep working on fixing the traps so we can actually get sound :)

AC97 hardware should continue to work....

Hi Paul,

yes, it does detect the mixer, REALTEK ALC 257

Good work!!

Thanks guys - I need to think about how best to proceed. At this stage, I think it's best to resurrect the logging that was broken around kernel 4.0 timeframe - I'm hoping that will elicit some clues as to why the mixer isn't being detected.

I'll post here when I have some news.

Hi Paul,

may be you can team up with "abwillis1", he helped me out with getting Uniaud to run on a Thinkpad X250.

Please see:

(ArcaOS Bugtracker Bug 2637)

Hi All, is based on the linux 4.14.x kernel - again - no hda mixer detection here in Virtualbox.



Hi Paul,

tested this 4.14.202, seems to show the same results as with the older one.

Boots OK, does not detect the mixer.

Great to see 4.14 boot at all!

What can I provide to assist?

Hi Paul,

the hardware I am using is far to new for the driver, I guess. So I did not expect it to work.

Even though I attach my results, may be I can be of help in a future release.

The hardware is a lenovo Thinkpad T480 with Intel core i7-8550 CPU.

Your driver loads and boots but can not detect the mixer. I guess this is what you would expect with this hardware.

If I can be of any help, please let me know.

Thanks for your great work!!

It happens quite often to me that once I change the partition laypiut Airboot manager stops working. It tells me to boot from diskette.

The most succesfull solution in case of having trouble with Airbootmanager was to me:

- Boot DFSEE USB Stick
- Select: NEW MBR; Keep Tables
- Activate Windows 10 boot Partition as active Partition
- Boot Windows 10 and reinstall Airboot

But the best solution was:

- Using IBM Bootmanager instead of Airboot Manager
-> never had such kind of problems even with Windows 10 and OS/2 Double Boot on a 2 TB SSD, please see my T25/2 video at youtube.

Sigurd, do you know the Lenovo product code for the backlit DE keyboard?

The linked one above is NOT backlit.

For the moment, I did some testing, and clicked off the "a" key..
I cannot see any dirt or dust underneath..
Then tried to push the key without the "a" cover... and found out, it doesn't work as good when pushing the right side of the rubber underneath the key. - Left side almost always worked.
Then.. I took some paper, scissors.. and cut a small piece off the paper, put it underneath the key, clicked it in.. and.. like new. --> so for the moment it works fine again, but I doubt it will for long.

In the meanwhile I am trying to get a backlit Thinkpad S1 Yoga 12 keyboard with DE layout.

But then again, if anybody did this already, and the keyboard CAN be maintained and revived, getting a new one would be a waste of money..

So.. any hints welcome. : )


Noch detaillierter:

Ich versuche auch schon eine ENTF Taste (die bei mir wackelt) zu bekommen, weil ich nicht die Tastatur nochmals tauschen möchte, aber es scheint aussichtslos.

Thanks for the reports

Sigurd. Nice, you made a custom Thinkpad Retro. I will make a page for it with your report. Do you still have the original "Lenovo ThinkPad 25 - Retro", or it was used for your custom Thinkpad? If you still have the original one I can use the pci.exe report to complete the HardwareID of it.


Hi Martin,

thanks, but the Original T25 is for sale now and therefore OS/2 is already deleted. I think it does not make much sense to make special side for the T25/2 as it is the only available "unikat" around. Others did the same as me, but with differenzt T480 hardware (i.e. no Touchscreen). It might make sense to make a page for the T480, as the T25/2 is almost one. But there are so many things today not working or limited, that this may make no sense either (i.e. only 1 GB RAM visible, no Sound etc.).

By the way please do not wonder, I deleted my ArcaOS Channel on Youtube as well as I do not have the time nor motivation to keep it going on.

Thanks for your ongoing support for OS/2-eCS-ArcaOS!

All the best!

So I do have finished my Thinkpad25/2 Project and published a short video on Youtube.

If you are interested:

Hope you have fun!

Important: my youtube channel is not linked to advertisements nor anything to make profit at all. It is a non commercial channel.

For one point I have to correct myself and apologize: the USB 3 Drivers seem to work quite well, I would guess those are more Beta than Alpha, see my post in the other USB 3 Thread.

My Thinkpad 25-2, based on a Thinkpad T480 (I build my own Thinkpad based on a T480 with the Palmrest, Keyboard, Touchpad etc. from the Thinkpad 25, all the inside electronic is a T480 with 32 GB RAM, Nvidia MX150, 2 TB SATA SSD etc. USB Hardware see Screenshot; unfortunately sound is not working so far, have to dig there):

USB 3 Driver work very well. USB DVD is working, USB DisketteDrive is working.

PCI.EXE attached.

Well Done!
