I will check Dmitry from Bitwise Works. But I seem to recall the Falkon browser would even be more work, because we need yet another library and would take more time to port.

The reason is simple: Falkon (as opposed to its predecessor Qupzilla) is KDE based. So, besides Qt, it also requires a recent version of KDE Framework (KF5) to build. It is a huge project and it is a very complex task to port it it to OS/2.
There is an option to build a qt based version without the additional KDE dependencies. In case the KF5 build system/framework needs to be ported as well its too much work, true.

What was the reason why the Otter Browser was chosen in first place? The Qupzilla/Falkon browser is more frequently updated and has a larger user base. It has the same requirement for a current QT framework.

Setup & Installation / Re: Warp 4.52 Install Issue

The usual thing is to slow the system down if possible in the BIOS, disable cache and such. Also make sure that the OS/2 memory setting (forget the exact term) thing is off.
You mean the >64MB DRAM detection helper for pre Warp4 releases? Its the last line in the screenshot.

@Martin
Did he try to install from CD? Either the installer can't load a module or program according to the message or the installer is not happy with the env.

That did enable the onboard sound and the mixer is now ok.

Yeah I would think it would show two adapters - I'll take a look at the log and see if there are any clues....

here it shows 2 adapter, the monitor is connected with dislayport cable. however no hdmi/dp sound nor onboard sound.

thanks for the hint, the reason was an older NSS.

could you please explain the details? I would try to resurvive the simplebrowser installation which actually opens the GUI but then remains mostly inoperable

I just updated NSS from 3.23.0 to 3.47.0. That did fix the startup crash here. Is there a known mechanism in rpm how to have different version of one dll installed that is required be different apps?

Now Firefox doesnt work anymore but simplebrowser works.
Once it chrashed in pmmerge.dll and a reboot was required.

after all pakages + dll necessary installation for simplebrowser, my Firefox did not start anymore, also posted in this thread, It returned working again after having installed libvpx-legacy-4 by ANPM

Funny thing is that after installing libvpx-legacy-4 firefox works again,  thanks  ;)  Can somebody tell if audio playback works in simplebrowser?

Yes, qt.io seems to be down quite a bit, it is currently not loading for me.
Try doing CTRL-T to open a new tab and enter https://google.com. If you get the rendering error, just click the try again.
This is a really basic browser so you have to enter the whole address, not just google.com, but https://google.com, and if a site needs www, you have to enter it to.
Glad it came up for you.

Here the browser starts then tries to load a page and simply quits with 2 beeps, so its living only for 4secs. Nothing in the logs and it makes no difference what URL is given.

Hi Dave,

This 0103 version works perfectly on my desktop machine (HDA: ALC887-VD): boots, proper sound, 9 controls in PMUnimix, no hesitations, appears in the hardware manager. I'll keep using this one and let you know if anything comes up - thanks again! Hope to soon see your bust in the OS/2 hall of fame!

Glad it works for you! Your comment about the hall of fame gave me a giggle - to be honest - I'm just glad people appreciate my work. The comments (and of course the occasional sponsorship that helps pay for new gadgets) are truly appreciated.

Big thanks for recent working updates for uniaud, as it was somehow stated that the code base what we had was not usable anymore and needs a complete replacement. Good that the core updates are in place now.

Because of dropping the old legacy plugin interface like firefox in favour of web extentions the thunderbird team ported the enigmail add on which is now part of thunderbird (V68+) itself, because the author didnt want to port it himself and without it no PGP support.

Storage / Re: oddities with OS2AHCI version 2.04
« on: January 01, 2018, 08:26:07 pm »
That is interesting, could you please ask them to give us some information.  I have not been able to do that on boards with the X370 chipset, the B350 chipset and the A320 chipset using both a Ryzen 7 and Ryzen 5 CPU.  Even an A12 APU with those chipsets is problematic.
I will try to find out.. Also don't forget that with Ryzen some ports are severed directly by the integrated chipset from the CPU, with the A12 (Bristol Ridge?) its integrated chipset is disabled when used together with a external chipset like in your case. What means problematic? Write errors?

Quote
Also, any board with as ASMedia chipset for AHCI is a no go.  From that the only conclusion that can be drawn is that there is NO standard unless it is an Intel or Intel supported chipset with our OS2AHCI driver.
This ASMedia ship is not a so called fake raid adapter? There is a standard, just because new hardware doesn't work from the start is another issue, or why work older amd ahci chipsets with no problem?

I cannot find any proof for this claims. In fact the Advanced Host Controller Interface is a specification by Intel.
It is true that Intel introduced this AHCI specification but its a general standard like most interface specifications.

Quote
The OS2AHCI adapter device driver is based on older code from Linux or BSD. There has never been a certification process (that would fail) at all.
If I'm not mistaken then the core driver was ported around 2012, BSD code.  A "funny" thing is when we still need to bother with AHCI but should already move to NVMe.  Somebody has an open ticket at AN for a non working AHCI driver on a current system? What is not working, the initialization ?  Lars should open a ticket for his issue anyway.

It is almost as if testing on AMD systems is an afterthought or what units they use for testing are old ones (I would like to get ArcaOS working on my Ryzen 8 core system or even the A12 APU system but...) since it apparently works on Intel's latest and greatest.

It should not matter if the system is amd or intel based, as the SATA AHCI interface is a standard and the os2ahci driver should support the hardware. The Bulldozer and not latest Core I7 CPU have a chipset that contains the controller, and not the CPU itself.
Not sure how, but some people got a "OS/2" to work on a Ryzen based system.

Another benefit of a new kernel is also to avoid to add patches to PSDs, drivers and other places to fix or add workarounds to the kernel but adding new functions and fixes to the krnl itself, which is the right place. When i remember correctly its only possible to load one psd so 'every' psd in use need to add this code to provide it to old krnl based systems,

Just for fun I created a.o. replacements of bkscalls.dll and kbdcalls.dll with source code.

Wim = hero  ;)
Has this some relation to the console API?
