Hi Doug

I think all later/current mainboards have the warning about only supporting 64 bit OS's - my B450 does but that does not stop AOS 5.1 from installing and running.

Hi All

It's possible the x600 is failing - must be fairly old by now  :-)
I had a x600pro a few years back which started to fail, could only be used in VBE mode as switching to accelerated mode resulted in a badly messed up display.

If Doug wants a recommendation for a replacement card the Radeon RX550 works fine with the Panorama driver.

Hi Doug

This is "on the wiki" and works quite well  https://www.os2world.com/wiki/index.php?title=MSI_B450M_PRO-VDH_MAX

After boot and with Seamonkey running this is the output from mem/v

H:\sys\bin>mem /v

Total physical memory:     14,271 MB
Accessible to system:       3,036 MB
Additional (PAE) memory:   11,235 MB

Hi All

I seem to have found a problem with DFSee 17 and creating Desktop objects.
In the dfsee bin directory is the file dfswpobj.cmd which is meant to create all DFSee Desktop objects.
When I run that file it reports lots of objects created successfully - and nothing appears on the Desktop.
Anyone else seeing this? - you will need to delete existing DFSee Desktop objects to test this so I suggest Desktop backup *before* testing.

Hi Andrew

Can you print from QP?
If "Yes" , select to Print then select Properties.
Select the Output tab then check Print to Raw Postscript File and enter where to save file to.
Then you can use [Unixroot]:\usr\bin\ps2pdf.cmd to convert from PS tp PDF eg

J:\USR\BIN>ps2pdf S:\Backups\H\18032011\test.ps S:\Backups\H\18032011\test.pdf

J:\USR\BIN>


The above converts a 2 page PS file to a 2 page PDF file successfully, Lucide has no problems displaying it.


Hope the above helps

Hi Dave

Memory nudge: daniatapi.flt replaces the 2 files IBMATAPI.FLT and IBMIDECD.FLT

Hi mauro

Copy danis506.add and daniatap.flt to [BootDrive]:\os2\boot

Open [BootDrive]:\config.sys and add the following 2 lines

BASEDEV=DANIS506.ADD /!BIOS
BASEDEV=DANIATAP.FLT

then REM the start of these lines if they exist

BASEDEV=IBM1S506.ADD
BASEDEV=IBMATAPI.FLT
BASEDEV=IBMIDECD.FLT

Save config.sys

Reboot

Test DFSee


Regards

Pete

Hi Martin

I get the same result with lpinfo -m when the cups daemon has not been started.
Is the cups daemon in the(a) Startup folder?

If "No" simply start cups daemon by doubleclicking [UnixRoot]:\usr\sbin\cupsd.exe

Then retry lpinfo -m

Hi Martin

Presuming cups is successfully installed is the cups daemon running?

Is the printer local or network? - and powered on?

Hi mauro

Might be worth simply deleting the contents of the dfsee directory and then unzipping(?) the latest version into that directory.

What the error seems to be saying is that the loaded disk driver IBM1S506.ADD does not understand whatever command from dfsee. When starting dfsee it seems that disk(s) get read for partition info so that is probably the failing bit. Strange...
What version (how old) is the IBM1S506.ADD in use? - might be worth trying danis506 as I recall that overcame some of the early IBM1S506 deficiencies.

Hi All

Finally found the option to turn off HT - sorry, SMT in the MSI B450PRO mainboard BIOS.

I have to say there is not a lot of difference between SMT enabled and disabled... Seamonkey and OpenOffice apps seem to start a little quicker with SMT enabled... Dooble is still unstable, liable to hang the system... WPS seems to trundle along at about the same speed.

Just for a comparison: I dug an old system out of the cupboard, connected it up and powered it on. Slower bootup, WPS runs at close to the same speed as the Ryzen5, apps are a little slower to load. Old system is based on a Jetway 663AS Ultra with AMD XP2000+ cpu, 1Gb RAM and IDE disks running eCS2.1

I think Lars may be onto something when he states: "What this all leads to is that the WPS is actually performing better if you have less CPU cores and not more."


Regards

Pete

Hi Lars

No change in the number of threads (32) displayed after pressing/releasing F5 continually for around 15 seconds, 40 key presses.

Hi Lars

Either F5 does not "Refresh" or doing so does not cause any problems with the Ryzen5 5600G with SMT enabled - TOP does not show any extra pmshell entries at all, just the usual 2 (WPS and Warpcenter). Possibly 300+ objects in a directory is not enough to cause the problem ...
