Hi Remy, thanks for the report. Guess I need to test on a virgin system. For now, move the dictionaries to @unixroot\usr\bin\webengine_dictionaries.

This path is taken and found.
Now, dictionaries have to be in .bdic binary format while those insalled using ANPM only have .dic and .aff  (.bdic missing)
I found the .bdic at :

enabling the use of the added dic, as soon as I try to update a form field, it fails.
e.g. adding my userid into the userid loging field for os2world forum.

Note: other bug, the suppr key doesn't work in a form field...

How to correct this error I have since several dooble drop (it worked with older one)
As well, translates files aren't found too ! 
dooble needs a lot of time to establish a session and load first page at startup ! (more than 10s after dooble is up)


Update:  about translates, I found that the location under RPM is share/dooble/translates while dooble is looking under usr/bin/translates (added this dir resolved the translate error message but dict isn't resolved yet.

I can try that util Rich if you want to share it.

I sent you a PM with a link to it.

I'm zero'ing out the drive each time on my macOS machine: diskutil secureerase 0 /dev/diskx and it takes a few hours so I'm confident it's wiping the entire drive.

This sounds like a remarkably bad idea! You are wearing out your SSDs needlessly. Only the first and last 100 sectors (at most) need wiping. In any case, if you end up with a bad GPT layout (or you want to revert to MBR) there's a way to repartition it without doing a wipe. It involves making a few temporary changes to config.sys, so I'll save that until it's needed.

In the past, I used testdisk after losing a GPT disk which was altered by ArcaOS adding MBR on it during installation.
With tesdisk, I could put GPT back very quickly (may be - not tried out of windows disk and only a supposition - it could help for mbr/gpt change but other function may not be usable due jfs nor hpfs aren't told been supported)

I suggest you to use zip instead of diskcopy (I use zip now " from the root partition to save: zip -r -S -9 -y n:\ * (n=destination drive letter) " since arca noae support team suggested me to use zip. It could be very long but it has several  advantages. 1/ you have a backup - 2/unzip into the new partition and if needed run instalx to have it bootable

If these information could help !

Hey all,

My ArcaOS 5.1 machine has started to get sluggish. Not sure what I can check. For example, opening Drives takes 10 seconds to show the drives, Firefox takes 30 seconds to open.. etc.

Machine is a Dell Precision T3610:

4 Core XEON E5-1603 @ 2.80 Ghz
500GB 7200 RPM Mechanical Drive in AHCI mode

I turned off all Virtualization in BIOS.

I don't know what to look for, or where to start. Any help is appreciated.

I have similar long time but it only occurs when I have Big NTFS or not known OS/2 ormaUSB key plugged. (not recognized disk format unde ArcaOS has not have the same result and can be ignored at boot time) 
Once I remove the USB key, system goes faster. as well, after openeing dirves one time, next time are faster but not as fast as without the USB key (or USB disk)

Q: Do you have efat, ntfs or unrecognized USB key ledt plugged in at boot time ? 

Setup & Installation / Re: Determine ArcaOs Version installed

I could only find the version using the install.flg method for ArcaOS. It would be great if a SYSLEVEL file was included. Try the attached. It was something I used to use with ECS and just extended it for ArcaOS. I think this is accessible here if you want to see how I did it:

If the link works, nver.exe is the executable. It checks for OSDIR, if not present check for ECS, if OSDIR then probably ARCA so check for install.flg and parse the first line.



Thanks, nver is exactly what I was looking for. It just baffles me that something like this is not part of the base ArcaOs system.

since V2.0.1, AVxCAT shows your OS version  (same location as written into previous posts

Since the annoncement, the site is unresponding (tried many many many... times !)
Or could the new "autoritary" Digital Service Act (DSA) impact  responstime ?

A fix was issued on AVxCAT (fp1) - crash with vebcam

A zip preview AVxCAT V2.1.0 is available for test (must be installed above AVxCAT V2.0.1.x)
(please use write to author link from AVxCAT since I had to disable email link from my website due to bad contacts)  [ in test mode, available at request ] - new fix 11 (30082023)
         - New option to use Icon buttons for predefined profiles instead of dropdown list
         - Selected iconbutton profile is saved at AVxCAT file/exit
         - Possibility to customize iconbutton profile (use of external cfg file)
         - Added [X] "delete" option for user created profiles under [New profile] button
         - Added "Create folder(s)" & "delete folder" under internal filemanager called by [Chg] button for target folder
         - Added "M4A" alac
         - Added "MOV"
         - Added MD5 package used to autocheck downloaded updates (through AVxCAT menu)
         - New ffmpegca.dll
         - Optimized parameters when involving leech (USB CD-ROM, grabbing private CDs)
         - corrected: a wrong video profile
         - corrected: some video option may use incorrect video extension
         - corrected: hung could occure when cdd2wav reads a track having lot of jitter (changed a fixed parameter)
         - Somme minor corrections
         - changed a few webcam -> UDP initial settings
         - fix of webcam bug included

note: same location as wpi download but named ""

info: window during webcam add (into main process list).
         To change some fields setting, click on updt (have webcam on), modify itsoffset to syncronize audio/video if needed
         ffplay checkbox is used with ffplay (ctrl) size used to display the stream video (only) to control recording or streaming.
         screenshots from v2.1.0

         Last screenshot is about downloaded update MD5 checksum error (I forced an error to get the message issued else no message)

With any build, as soon you open favourites window, run a saved link and then close the navigator, the opened favourites window isn't closed and you have to kill the process....

Other things not working !
* Print preview (crash)
* Using [suppr] button to erase a char in a search string doesn't work, have to use return backward....

Hi Remy

What I do under ClamAV GUI to refresh dhcp
If lan0 used

a/ ifconfig lan0 -arp
b/ ifconfig lan0 down
c/ dhcpmon -T
d/ ifconfig lan0 up
e/ ifconfig lan0 arp
f/ dhcpmon -R

As it is, it didn't work, but if I add a "c:\mptn\bin\setup.cmd" run at the end it works for me.


Strange and good to know. Thanks

May be you can try:
"type the Euro sign by holding Alt and typing 0128 in the numerical pads on the right side of your keyboard"

Give it a try.
I generated my OpenAI Key here:
The program runs on Win-OS2, but I get no reply from GTP.

Not sure I'm missing some TCP/IP on Win-OS2. I don't use it.


Be carefull with AI sir !  ::)
