I did so more revisions on the grey black folders.   Continued to make the icons bigger, added more icon selections.  I deleted the old zips and uploaded the new ones.  I named the zip files blk_folders to keep one from getting mixed up with the previous ones which were called greyfoldes.

Made one more folder set (Grey).  Decided to make the icons on the folders a little bigger.  Again there are so many PNGs that I had to split it into 2 zip files.

Thanks for the info and compliment.  I made some corrections and made more PNG folders to choose from.  The zip file is now so large I had to split it into two.  It exceeded the size limit for this site to upload.  I deleted the original.  This folder set is by far the largest I have ever done.

Has anyone noticed that when one REARRANGES  any folders icons from its default setting which is STANDARD to anything else such as TOP,, when the folder is closed and reopened, it reverts back to the default STANDARD. This has to be a bug. ArcaOS 5.07.

New Yellow PNG folder icons.  Had to change manually.  ArcaOS unlike eComstation does not allow it to be automatically done

If you don't have warpin, it can be found here.  For years Warpin has been the mainstay installer for OS/2 until YUM.

Hi all, when trying to run the good old American Heritage Dictionary (published by DUX) on ArcaOS 5.0.7, I get a SYS3175 with PMMERGE.DLL, the app does not start. Googling for that error gives many results with people mentioning similar problems. There are also patched versions of PMMERGE.DLL but all much older than the current ArcaOS version, that may or may not have integrated this patched version. IIRC this problem happened with eCS too but not with the original Warp 4.

Was there a known solution / workaround to be able to start such programs on current versions of the OS?

From my perspective this way of fixing stuff is the same as throwing mutt at the wall and see if it sticks.
I think everybody is putting Glenn on the wrong foot to make him replace pmmerge.dll. It might fix the crash the but nobody even knows why the crash occurs in the first place. So if you backlevel the last version of pmmerge.dll with an older one. The program might start to work, but then what is broken ?
I mean its all well intended but what is causing the crash in the first place ? PMMERGE.DLL is pretty important system dll and not something that should just be swapped out like spare tire from the trunk of your car.

Glenn can you put back the original version of pmmerge.dll and run the program ? Post the popuplog.os2 entry and then I might be able to tell why it crashes. Maybe a font that is installed ? I have no clue but then we MIGHT be able to trace why it crashes.


I noticed the pmmerge.dll in ArcaOS is still at buildlvl

[D:\]bldlevel d:\os2\dll\pmmerge.dll
Build Level Display Facility Version 6.12.675 Sep 25 2001
(C) Copyright IBM Corporation 1993-2001
Signature:       @#IBM:14.106#@ OS/2 PM Merged Library
Vendor:          IBM
Revision:        14.106
File Version:    14.106
Description:     OS/2 PM Merged Library

It appears to be at the same build level since this patch came out.

Patches for PMMERGE 14.106

This could be a wrong assumption, but if pmmerge had been patched or updated by the ArcoOS team, would not the build level number increase?  Not being a programmer, this may be a wrong assumption.

I  run OS/4 kernel on one partition and the ArcaOS kernel on another.  Neither partition is able to run the American American Heritage Dictionary.

I did download a PDF of the dictionary and Lucide views it without any problems.

Hi Jochen

I tried installing the FeatherNotes RPM package and I get the message below.

I installed the zip package and created a program icon.  When I execute it nothing happens.
The ZIP package is not a RPM package. It's just a zipped version of the unixroot layout. It's included for people not using RPM.
If you use RPM, you should download the rpm package and install it via RPM or the Arcanoae GUI.

I downloaded both packages.

Trying to install with YUM gave the earlier error message.

I unzipped the zip package and installed the USR directory over the USR directory in my root directory.
When the program object is picked, the program fails giving the following error message in the popuplog.os2:

03-20-2022  20:56:57  SYS2070  PID 007a  TID 0001  Slot 00a8

I used PMDLL to check all the dependencies and they are all there with nothing missing.

I have updated FeatherNotes to version 0.10.1. You can find the packages here:

Hi Jochen

As for Featherpad, when I close the program, it appears to close. However, the icon still shows active although the program is closed.  The taskbar does not show it.  When I go into TOP, it shows still active and I have to kill it.

This is with ArcoOS 5.07 with all the latest updates.

Hi Remy

I must apologize.  I found what I did wrong.  I failed to copy the files over the previous install which had used Warpin.  Once I did that, everything appears to work great.   There were more files I required that were not included with the previous install. Thanks for all you hard work..
