Programming / Watcom C
« on: August 25, 2022, 02:46:28 pm »

A few of us have been trying (very much amateur's) to compile this source code on arca for a BBS program.  I believe it is watcom C?
Anyone have some advice, direction? Or willing to give it a try if you have the experience? Ill attach the zip of the source..

Hope everyone is well

Hardware / HP Printer Officejet 9015e
« on: July 30, 2022, 09:49:44 pm »

Getting further along in getting my Arca setup going... I am trying to get it to print.  I have the above mentioned HP printer on my network, Arca sees it, which was good but when I print to it, it prints one garbled line across the top of the page and that is it... Anyone point me where to trouble shoot?

Hope everyone is well and staying safe


Applications / DOS version on ArcaOS

Just curious if possible to install a different version of dos on arca?


Applications / Path

Greetings All,

I hope everyone is well out there!  I cannot remember, can I start an application say like file commander from a 4os2 prompt from any dir by say typing "fc"?  I have that dir on my path statement in config.sys, I just do not recall if that is possible under os2 or arca?



Setup & Installation / Dos and WinOS2
« on: July 08, 2022, 02:38:14 am »

I have just discovered that both dos and winos2 prompts do not work, in fact loading either window or full screen hangs my laptop. I do not recall this issue when I installed arca on this laptop before but it was awhile ago.  I looked on arca web site and seemed they had directions to fix similar issues so I did try those, autoexec.bat and the config.sys change but problem persists.  Any ideas?


Utilities / Text editor
« on: July 06, 2022, 06:22:48 am »

Is there a good command line text editor for os2? Like nano etc?



Setup & Installation / Back to ARCA
« on: July 04, 2022, 10:01:57 pm »
Greetings All,

I am giving Arca another go on my thinkpad 430s and there are a couple things I know I figured out before but cant seem to remember how to today.  One my touch pad works as expected but cannot use it to scroll? Was this ever working or was I imagining that?  Also there is a way to drill down into folders without opening a new window, I just dont recall how to do that... I did get it to work with my 1080 laptop screen that I installed so thats awesome!

Glad to be back, Hope everyone is well



Applications / ODIN
« on: February 26, 2021, 02:23:34 am »

My fist go with odin I am getting a error when opening my win app... missing MSCVRT.DLL anyone know where I can locate this safely?


Applications / SSH
« on: February 24, 2021, 06:56:12 pm »

I am trying it again to get ssh working.. Ive given up on sshd running on arca its just not working well.  But I would like to ssh from arca to any number of computers on my network.  I can do this it seems without too much problem just minor visual stuff with TERM.  My problem is I cannot get ssh-agent to work at all, its there I just get a weird error when trying to start it...

unix_listener: cannot bind to path C:\\var\\temp/ssh-FPcXYw7bbYMq/agent.60: Too
many open files in system

I have scoured the internet for this error and while I could find people with the same error all their suggestive fixes are for linux ie 'eval' ssh-agent .. which will not work on arca... I need to get this working as none of my servers allow password authentication and while I can include the key in my ssh command I would like to be able to skip that with ssh-agent.

All help appreciate, hope you are all well.


Setup & Installation / Fonts
« on: February 24, 2021, 02:53:42 am »

Can I say change the font in a 40s2 terminal?  I know I can change the size but how about the font?

Hope you are all well


Applications / arguments
« on: February 21, 2021, 06:17:03 am »

Chugging along with my arca setup I have run into another stumble...

On my linux boxes I run a bp (bink poll command) that simply looks like;

echo $1
/usr/local/sbin/binkd -p -P$1 ~/etc/config/binkd.cfg

The $1 being a fido address

so if I were type bp 1:105/10 it would poll that address using the above path to config file etc

So I corrected the path (/ to \) for os2 but it doesnt seem to like the argument $1?

Is there a different way I could do this in os2?


Applications / Absolute path?
« on: February 11, 2021, 03:50:37 am »

When trying to run a new try at ssh I get the following error when starting sshd

Sshd re-exec requires execution with an absolute path

I have not a clue what that means, anyone?



Setup & Installation / Intel NUC (A20 Gate error)
« on: February 09, 2021, 05:18:44 pm »

Just curious if anyone has ever installed arca on a intel nuc? How did it go?



Applications / Cron or cron like?
« on: February 05, 2021, 12:42:35 am »

Now that I am getting things dialed in ( thank you to all for your help) I am wondering if there is a task scheduler or cron like utility in os2? Seems I remember something from the warp days but for the life of me can’t remember it..
