Setup & Installation / ArccaOS 5.0.6 does not see hard disk; FAT32 problems
« on: November 06, 2021, 04:58:52 pm »
(1) I have got two HDs installed, a SSD with the operating systems and a bigger HDD for backups, videos, music and so on. I have got both 5.0.2 and 5.0.6 installed. 5.0.6 does not see the HDD, 5.0.2 and Windows sees it. Any ideas?

(2) I thaught that the ArcaOS FAT32 driver is the more stable one, compared to the Netlabs version. But now I tried to copy 500 MB of data to the FAT32 drive (internal SSD) with the original ArcaOS FAT32 driver. Copy runs without problems. But after restarting, both Windows and ArcaOS does not see the new files anymore. chkdsk /D on Windows has no effect. (This had always an effect with Netlabs driver). Any ideas?

I could solve my problems by copying the
Code: [Select]
var usr sys etcdirectories from a functioning ArcaOS installation to the problematic one. Now all works fine. It is useful to store the working state of these directories.

After starting the Computer without SMT (Hyperthreading), "i686" appears as platform. So this seems to be the reason of choice. But anyway, updating all YUM stuff (while updating, it turns to "pentium4" again) does not help. So it seems that meanwhile, a package has changed and omits running OpenOffice. YUM seems to be a big construction zone in ArcaOS.
Next, I will try to copy the whole YUM directories from the corret installtion to the problem installation and will report here next week.

I have tried now the SMT setting in the BIOS (advanced - CPU). ArcaOS has got still the four pulse graphs. So it seems that SMT and Hyperthreading is the same indeed.

I have got ArcaOS 5.0.2 and have installed a FAT32.IFS Netlabs driver (0.10-r384)

I only found a switch to turn off SMT. But if I understand right, this is not the same. Symmetric Multi Threading means several cores are used for one thread each, and Hyperthreading means two threads are running on the same core. Is that right? Of course I still want to use all my cores.

One of the upgrade steps changes your platform from i686 to pentium4.

But on the computer working fine which shows still "i686", I did make also the same (all) upgrade steps.
There's perhaps one week time difference. Can it happen that in this week, such minor changes were made on the server?

I can also try to copy the directories
Code: [Select]
usr/* var/* etc/* sys/*from the fine working installtion to the problem installation.
I hope that all information about the system drive is stored in environment variables, because the drive letters are different.

After getting problems with two ArcaOS installations, I started a new installation of ArcaOS 5.0.6. Meanwhile, installation really runs fine on my two computers. But I wonder why on the one computer, the default Arca Noae Platform setting (Manage - Platform) is "pentium4", on the other "i686". Only on the "i686" computer, OpenOffice 4.1.8 works. On the "pentium4" computer, it ends with the 2nd start screen (User Name). I did not install any other software on both systems. The main difference (besides another manufacturer of the AMD4 motherboard) is that the one which works ("i686") has got a Ryzen 2200G 4 core APU without Hyperthreading (= 4 threads), and the one where I have got the problems ("pentium4") is a Ryzen 3400G 4 core with Hyperthreading (= 8 threads), and more clock speed.

Is it possible that ArcaOS does not like Hyperthreading (sorry, I cannot turn it off on the BIOS) and switches back to the more secure "pentium4"?
Can I force i686 while installing ArcaOS ? I did not find a setting in the installation routines.

But now, it does not work anymore even I reinstall AOO. I tried 4.17 and 4.18. I have no idea anymore what to do. There are three different computers envolved, and an additional installation where I did not update the DLLs.

Storage / exFat or FAT32 ?
« on: September 25, 2021, 11:37:40 pm »
Since a few days, I thought that the only way to store data together with other OS is FAT32. Then I put a EXFAT pre-formatted SD card of my new Smartphone into the USB adapter, and - what a surprise - it can be accesses without any problems with ArcaOS without formatting via DFSEE.

I have got serious problems with FAT32 partitions on my Hard Disc with FAT32. ArcaOS often hangs.

Now my question:
(1) Is it better to format my USB sticks used for data transport between ArcaOS and other OS with EXfat instead of FAT32 ?
(2) Can I format a HD partition with EXFAT ?
(3) Is there a OS/2 tool (dfsee?) where I can format a partition with EXFAT?
(4) What about performance and stability on ArcaOS in comparison to FAT32 ?

I had also the described problem, and a simple re-installation of the same WPI archive did help.

I have got 1350 mails in the SENT folder. If the messages are older than 2 years, I move them to subfolders 2018, 2019...

Meanwhile, I have updated to pmMail 3.25 and yes, it seems to be better than 3.24. But the vanishing E-Mails do not appear again.

Now I have managed a simple workaround to add the "from:" line to all affected files.

To make sure that you do not corrupt your msg files, make a backup copy of sent.fld without subdirectories.

1. Download my DO commandline tool
2. Make the sent.fld current
3. create a batch file addfrom.cmd with the content:

Code: [Select]
copy %1 temp.txt
copy from.txt+temp.txt %1

3. create a text file from.txt with the missing "from:" line (do not forget the final Return)

4. run:

Code: [Select]
do searchlistno . *.msg From: >repair_from.cmd
You will get a list of files which are affected (do not contain "From:").

5. Edit the new batch file and make a search/replacement so you will get:
Code: [Select]
call addfrom.cmd quapom00.msg
call addfrom.cmd quawhg00.msg
call addfrom.cmd quaxg100.msg
call addfrom.cmd qubmkd00.msg

6. Run the batch file.

The file dates will update to the current date, but the correct dates are still shown in pmMail.

Mail-News / pmMail 3.24 serious problems
« on: August 19, 2021, 12:09:41 am »
I have got serious problems with pmMail 3.24. It is nervy that it always tries to reindex folders when opening a folder, and the processor load is heavy when re-indexing a folder by command (I have SD and Ryzen processor). But my main problem is now, that in the SENT Folder, pmMail 3.24 omits the "From:" line in the mail. That would not be a problem, because in my SENT folder, all stored mails are written by me. But when reindexing the folder, I get the error message:

Code: [Select]
Folder Re-Index - <Sent Mail>
Content has no FROM address: [VIEREG0.ACT\SENT.FLD\qtao1500.msg]
Content has no FROM address: [VIEREG0.ACT\SENT.FLD\qtaozp00.msg]
Content has no FROM address: [VIEREG0.ACT\SENT.FLD\qtat8g00.msg]
Content has no FROM address: [VIEREG0.ACT\SENT.FLD\qtcf3y00.msg]
(and so on)

So all sent mails which I have sent with pmMail 3.24 are vanishing when reindexing the SENT folder. That's not funny !

Can someone send this bug report to the autor or send me the address or buglist page where I can send this description? Thank you.

Applications / Re: pmMail and TLS 1.2

Thank you for your hints. I added the following to my stunne.conf:

Code: [Select]
;TLS Version (Strato since 7/2021)
sslVersion = TLSv1.2

The first trial failed, because in the General Settings of pmMail 3.24, page Secure Transfer, there was still an old stunnel.exe version selected.

Then I realized that if no sslVersion switch is selected, the new stunnel.exe version also works. It seems that it select TLS 1.2 as default.

My E-Mail provider sent me an E-Mail some weeks ago that TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1 is no more supported in the future. Since yesterday, I cannot receive mails anymore with the current pmMail 3.24 version. Sending E-Mails is still working.

I get the very helpful account error message

Code: [Select]
Error: Error 0
I do not find any content about TLS in the pmMail documentation.

The more detailed query in english language is here:
