I seem to vaguely remember that with newer versions of DANIS506.ADD the DANIATAP.FLT is no longer needed.
What also seems odd that one driver reports use of IRQ 10 and the other of IRQ 16 for the very same controller. Just try without the FLT driver.

If you remove the Daniatapi, the disk icon in the minijm disappears.
Error with interrupts is a well-known Daniel error. There in one case does not correctly display interrupts if their number is more 15.

Did you mention the master/slave status of the Zip drive?

My ZIP-drive is set as a master drive.

Perhaps will help?
I installed this old Daniel driver. It did not help. The driver used by me for several years is newer and there is a disk icon in LVM, but it is supposedly not inserted.

I am guessing, that you need to mount a disk, and use LVM to assign a drive letter (same as required by USB sticks). That would need to be done for every disk, if it is actually the answer.
Thank you for the response. LVM does not allow you to create a volume on the disk, although the disk itself sees. Similarly, it displays flash drives that are missing. Of course, the drive in the drive is pre-inserted.

I have iomega zip 100 with IDE interface. I want to access the disk.
I installed an additional IDE controller and drivers:

Code: [Select]
BASEDEV=DANIS506.ADD /!BIOS /A:0 /BM /U:0 /A:1 /I /V

The system is successfully loaded.
I get a report:

Code: [Select]
R1.8.15      /!BIOS /A:0 /BM /U:0 /A:1 /I /V
            Daniela's Bus Master IDE Driver for OS/2 Version 1.8.15
Controller:0  Port:D020 IRQ:10  Status:OK
  JMicron JMB363 PATA host (197B:2363 rev:03) on PCI 2:0.0#1
 Unit:0 Status:OK ATAPI PIO0
  Model:IOMEGA  ZIP 100       ATAPI             14.A   


Code: [Select]
0/m: IOMEGA  ZIP 100       ATAPI              14.A    b                     
Port D020/D012, Irq 16, ATAPI, PIO0

0/s: (not present)

However, the drive letter in the system is not assigned and contact the device cannot be applied.

What can be done to get a drive letter in the system?
According to my memories, once a long time, this device worked in the OS / 2 system.

Actually, it might indeed be a memory problem: a couple of secondary windows are created (and closed with exit) until I get a bunch of memory error messages, obviously one error message per attempt to open an additional window.

It's possible that PM (including the PM drivers) has some problem allocating memory. Potentially, because they have to allocate from some limited memory pool or region.
I have had success by decreasing the disk cache. This is a lack of kernel memory. In multiprocessor machines, the error message is not issued and the system is frozen.

With the already mentioned config and with the ORIGINAL pmmerge, I do not get a hang on either testcase.
However, teststart2 eventually reports this:

SYS0008: There is not enough memory available to process this command.
All available memory is in use.

However, I cannot see memory depleting, therefore I think the root cause if something else. In any case, this seems to be a bug in the REXX interpreter.

What I can also see for testcase2 is that the initial window does not properly draw which might be a PM problem.
If this stuff crashes for you then there might be an SMP issue with PM (as I am only running on one core). I wouldn't be surprised.
Thank you for the error message! This is a very important point that I could not get on the SMP system. Perhaps another process is trying to still use the memory that is no longer left. And there is freezing.

I offer two tests. Both of me freeze any system. I wonder how it will be with you?

Tests go through 10 000 cycles and stop in a good case and freeze earlier in a bad one.

Everything works great on two different computers. One of them is a server in constant uptime.

I believe that a successful build with AVX is an accident and I suggest disabling the AVX code until the link is fixed.

Hi, Dave

This version doesn't work for me...

Failing Instruction

1261D064 >DB 0xc5                   (c5)
1261D065  CLD                       (fc)
1261D066  SUB     [0x1261cdf0], AH  (2825 f0cd6112)
1261D06C  DB 0xc5                   (c5)

And yet my assemblies are working.

There's a new version uploaded to netlabs-exp. To quote,
I've uploaded a new version 4.2.2-4 to netlabs-exp with -fno-common --disable-avx2 --disable-avx512. Note that I still use --disable-avx2 because of my current assumption that it is not safe to generate AVX2 code w/o a proper alignment support from GCC (see my comment above). I guess that it works for you now just by accident.

Closing this. Please feel free to reopen if the new RPMs don't work for you.
untested here.

This FFmpeg plays videos fine on my system, CPU supports AVX, OS/2 kernel which doesn't.
Yes of course. So everything will be, if the kernel does not support AVX, then this code is not included and another algorithm works that does not require special alignment.
But if the kernel supports AVX (this is an OS4 kernel), then the AVX code branch will turn on and a trap will appear.
If you disable AVX support during compilation, then the code will work on both the standard kernel and OS4.

Dll kit to support streaming video Seamonkey and Firefox for OS / 4 kernel. Disabled AVX support. Failed to get this set of commands to work with the "-fno-common" key.

I have installed:
1. SDL2 2.0.12-2
2. libvorbis 1.3.7-2

Possibly needed packages SDL2_*
I also have them installed.

Hi Igor,

Do you have a quick pre-requisites summary?

I ask b/c trying on non OS4 kernel (assuming here that it runs w/o the AVX instructions in such a scenario) shows the following:

Code: [Select]
SYS1804: The system cannot find the file VORBIS0. clearly a missing DLL.


Hi Dariusz,

Please install libvorbis via ANPM.
You can also use yum, but I don't know what the package is called there. Perhaps the same.
