Applications / Re: Implemented DUMPFS.IFS as a 32-bit IFS

...ArcaOS (5.0.6 and up) now dumps to a FAT32 volume...

It depends which os2dump is being used.

DumpFS.ifs is invented to make os2dump as simple as possible.

I have now reimplemented the "DUMPFS.IFS" contained in that package as a 32-bit version.

Hi Lars

I have just tested your excellent 32bits DUMPFS.IFS.  It works ok for me on OS/4 kernel with dump created by os4dump.

Hi!

Please create an assembly QT5 without support of the ABX. Due to the presence of ABX, an error occurs and the browser falls into the trap.

What do you mean by ABX?

I believe he meant AVX.

I then checked NSS and updated all NSS packages.
That worked - I am posting from the rpm Dooble...

I do not update NSS* (3.23.0-4) and NSPR (4.12.0-4)  to the latest available.
Ones I have updated them and my FF became to very unstable. Downgrade was a nightmare.

Get my newest Firefox build from Bitbucket, it includes in tree NSPR4 and NSS and is much more stable.

- got your latest FF from Bitbucket
- updated NSPR4 and NSS

Dooble starts and somehow  works

TNX a lot!

My build crashes now and again at a breakpoint

Same here. Every time I tried to visit some site, Int 3 happens.

OS4 kernel I assume? perhaps some interaction with the debug kernel that (I think) is the basis for hte OS4 kernel.

The same on IBM kernel - double sound and nothing (since original kernel was retail)

In the comport terminal  I can see  int 3, ud2   -   so coder decided to crash the code on purpose. Just crash, no warning  -  very specific approach.

Might want to delete your profile, located under %HOME%\.dooble, and of course have VIRTUALADDRESSLIMIT as high as stable.

Profile deleted.   VIRTUALADDRESSLIMIT  = 3072.   Int3 is still there.

@Dave have you tried building otter from https://github.com/bitwiseworks/otter-browser-os2 ? Here it built fine, but crashed in libcx as soon as I try and run it.

Yes, I tried a month ago, same crash I assume.

@OS4USER, did you mark as much as possible to load high?

Yes, using your excellent script.

I have now released UVC Webcam Server for OS/2 (ArcaOS,eComStation) as open source. Enjoy.

Tnx, Wim,  for you excellent work.

Unfortunately, newer motherboards map the bulk of RAM above 4GB and below 4GB by only 1GB or so.
Here large parts of the RAM are below 4 GB, but Dmitry's loader recognizes just the largest contiguous block.

His loader recognizes all blocks of RAM - it is really pies of cake. But os2kernel has a bug and cannot work with some kind of blocks. That is why the loader reports to kernel about available memory with some correction - not all the blocks are shown.

Meanwhile os4kernel does not have that bug  -  and os4loader reports about ALL the blocks. On some system one can see that os4kernel shows more "RAM in machine" then os2kernel for this reason. (actually, difference is not very big)

Are you guys saying that AOS on newer systems with more than 4 GB of ram installed cannot utilitize all 4 GB of RAM for the system?

OS/2 only works with 32-bit physical addresses (kernel and drivers). So it is possible to address RAM (and other devices) that the motherboard maps below 4Gb. Some recent developments allow utilize of RAM above 4 GB, but so far only for ramdrive (AOS uses PAE, OS/4 uses PSE36).

Unfortunately, newer motherboards map the bulk of RAM above 4GB and below 4GB by only 1GB or so.

RAM disk is not an option, when only 1 GB or less is recognized for the system.

OS/4 PSE-36 RamDrive  uses mem above 4Gb,  so 1Gb recognized by the system   is  for system :)
