General Discussion / Re: "request ISO build" not working
« on: July 19, 2024, 02:30:50 pm »
"Request ISO build" is working. Email response sent to reporter.

Please do not assume that the problem is on our end when a notification email is not received in a timely fashion. as these emails contain download links, it is entirely possible that they may be blocked or trapped by your ISP or mail provider, and we would have no way to know that. Only you can check this with your ISP or mail provider.

Everything is working as designed, the system is up, building ISOs, and sending notifications.

Thanks, everyone, for your support.

Hi !

This email ISP only blocks email with viruses, never with links nor invasive scan like gmail nor gone into spam folder or identified as pub_renater (special pub folder)
Email received this morning at 4:36 while contact replies at 4:41 and 5:12

The download link button named #Download ISO" only appears this morning under my ArcaOS account which is the issue I reported here, no download link avalable  !
(This download button appears and is made available after receive of this morning download link email - very long delay needed)

Always ok now after more than a week and 3 ISO builod request as well two emails sent through contact.
Thanks having corrected processes which I suppose may include delivery notification when sent/received

I visited the site and check if it works for me. In my case the ISO was already there and I was able to download it.  I clicked on "Build ISO Again", now it shows an image that asks you for the language (Only English is available), I click "English" but it just give me the same download link for the ISO that was already generated.

I guess I can not test it out if it works or not.

I don't understand what it means "Note: only one language can be built at any one time." Does it mean that you can only choose your language one time and you can no longer change it?, or it means that you can only have on language at a time, for example, you choose English and next week you change to Spanish, and at that moment you can only download Spanish, until you change your language again and generate an new ISO?


Yes, like you wrote, going though language English selection and then no more messages.
Only the request ISO build button is valid, no download link for me

It is uncharacteristic for ArcaNoea to not respond.

Is this an upgrade, new purchase, or the remake of an ISO you already downloaded?

ISO rebuild to download it (subscription valid until january 2025)

I am running Arca OS 5.1.

Ok, You have needed rexx dlls to start AVxCAT (the rxutilex is base installed on ArcaOs)
Just add needed additional packages with they prereq if not done yet.
note: 2 hobbesarchive link (ogg & id3v2) where incorrect under my EN web page (ok under FR web page). I updated the page.

Can you provide more information about the issue you have please ?
Or write me using the email link (from AVxCAT or using the given link into the pdf.
I always help to resolve issues found or give attention to any suggestion

Please read my "Note" in the initial message of this thread too.

My problem with the latest release is that it is asking for a Dll package that is not avaible right now. Or so it seems.

No more needed Dll's as before (rxu been replace - left compatibility - since several releases by rxutilex, mutch better) 

Which dll are you looking for ?
If I'm right, you are under OS/2 or eCs but not under ArcaOS ?
(You'll have to download the rxutilex dll

All dll's are available (rexx dll's + bitmap dll)
Other dll's are additionnal programs required dlls but you should  find all links into the pdf doc or under my web site

Hello Remy

It is nice to see that AVxCAT has an "update feature" on it.

I tried to check it today but the "Menu -> Help -> Get update" does not show.
Is version GA3 [FP3] the latest?


Hi Martin !

AVxCAT 2.1.x.x will get all updates for V2.1.x
While AVxCAT 2.0.x only gets updates for V2.0.x

Is the network up (with or without proxy ?)
If the "Network up ?" option under parameters is enabled ?  then the network is supposed down, click on it to enabled internal network status

Getting updates from under help menu and with the MD5 tool under AVxCAT, the downloaded update is auto checked for correct MD5.
Out of AVxCAT, here is the link to get the latest update (I had to upgrade to FP2)
* Only usable on V2.1..x *
To find current V2.1..x updates, you can have a look here: (add filename as given into avxcat21.updt)

Do you have a firewall ? (give a try without it)
How long did you use the SSD (lot of writes on it ?). Last time you did a fstrim on it from under linux ?

How to update AVxCAT ?
1/ Have network up
2/ Start AVxCAT -> if available update is found, you'll get an information red message
3/ Menu -> Help -> Get update
    Update can be a ZIP file needing a manual copy/replace provided files
    Update can be a wpi file in which case, just follow installation

Note: Updated to Fixpack 1
- Corrected: unexpected drdialog box at close time via Get update  (general close modified)

Note: if AVxCAT won't start after update (e.g. corrupted ini or required customization wasn't done as expected), try delete AVXCAT.INI file and redo customization

Thanks for all advice! The Brother DCP9020cdw sounded good, but it does not seem to be on sale any longer. I am told that its successor is Brother DCP-L3560cdw. Do you think I can expect that to work well with ArcaOS?

It has linux cups drivers !
To check if these cups drivers are compatible with ArcaOS (cups)

I always thought, it is a 4 GB, not 4 MB limit. Am I not right?
You may not be right indeed: :P

I don't use term "GibiByte". It is not "real" term. I use only real term "GigaByte". 1000 MB is not a gigabyte. Gigabyte was always 1024 Megabytes.

Yes, it was

Since a long time now: GB = GigaBytes = 1000KB
while GiB (Giga binary bytes) = 1024KB  "old GB"

I use separated printer/scanner since I've got a scanner out of work included with a printer.
The scanner I use and I'm very satisfied by it due it is small and very fast with high output quality, one pass does recto + verso if needed and I put the output scanned on my server which is Arca/OS, Windows available. Of course, usb connection is available too.
Brother scanner ADS-1600W  (USB + WIFI - wifi usefull when used by ArcaOS due the scanner will put the doc into the destination folder)

Note: the new Brother product replacing this one -> ADS-1800W

As laser color printer (dual mode rj45, wifi and usb), may be -> LEXMARK C3426dw
Brother laser printers are very nice too

Are there any color lasers available with Postscript, A3, duplex, Ethernet < 1k€? I few months ago I searched for one but couldn't find any.

I found a used and discontinued product told been fully checked (has it all ink cartridge installed ! to check  ::) )


Hi All

I have a cheap HP inkjet/scanner, Envy Photo 6234, which gets to print a couple of pages now and again - roughly every 4 to 6 weeks.

I frequently find that the inkjet cartridges have become blocked, ink has dried in the printheads, due to lack of regular use.

As the ink is water based the cure is not to replace the cartridges but simply to soak the printheads gently in some water for a couple of minutes then reinsert cartridges in printer and print a Status Report from the printers setup selection which delivers enough black and colour ink to show whether the water treatment worked. I have only had to repeat the water treatment once and never had to replace blocked cartridges.

O course, I do not let dogs,cats or very young humans slobber over any printed photos  :-)



I tried water and other option to get the cartridges (each cartridge has included print head) of the inkjet work again, it start to print 2 or 3 pages at very poor quality and missing lines. Only a full replacement with a new cartridge made it print nively again.
Inkjet has higher definition than laser but out of printing high quality photos, laser has good results. 

Inkjet printers: ink dries over time
Which time you're talking about? Decades or centuries. Honestly, are you repeating experiences we all made 20-30 years ago. Or do you have made any experience in the last 5 years with inkjet printers in the more than 200€ class? (read - not the cheapest crap you can get but in the price range of cheap laser)

Yes there's still a problem when you cut the power supply regularly with inkjets in comparison to laser printers. But as the all now consume way less then 1W in stdby this is no more than a few € a year. Over an estimated lifetime of 10 years f.i. less than 20€. You'll save a lot more of money with the inkjet in this 10 years cause the ink costs per page are much lower then the toner costs for a laser THESE days. Yes it was different 10 or 20 or 30 years ago. But time has changed.

(Hope my new Brother inkjet with Postscript and A3 will last longer than the latest laser printers I bought. But I'm still very confident)

I didn't use my inkjet for about 1 and 1/2 year and trying to print a document, some color including black didn't work (the cartradge were full of ink but the ink was drie!)
This never happens with laser printer. I already have one but I have to change the cartrage (expensive but able to print above 5000 pages (one black cartridge:8000pages, each color cartridge: 4000pages ) compared to an inkjet cartridge limited to a few hundred pages max:930pages for the black cartridge) - in my case, the price per page is far lower for my laser printer than my inkjet cartradge and nearly the same using compatible ink cartradge but the resulting quality isn't the same.
(laser printer can use coimpatible cartridge too but never tried yet. My first cartridge into the laser printer)

HP inkjet with (front/back printing option) - print head included into the cartrage
Lexmark color laser printer (front/back printing option too and faster than the inkjet)

When using original manufactured cartridge (with maximum capacity):
For my inkjet: black 70€  (0.0752€ per page)
Lexmark: black 188€ (0.0235€ per page)
The difference is higher using compatible ink cart.

"HP 980Cxi" with duplex option - same as 990Cxi
"Lexmark CD510DE"
