Hi Dave

Maybe is something like that.  With lxlite SOM.DLL and SOMD.DLL get compressed, but not exactly the same size.
Should we assume that are the same files and do not worry about it?

Just drifting away from this topic, I noticed that some SOM Dlls are different size and date from the OS/2 TK 4.5 and the ones installed in ArcaOS 5.1.

Thanks Steven. I didn't remembered that old tool.

This time I don't know what this software is about:
Some place say it is a " NetWare Migration Utility" and "Netware Migration Utility for Netware 3.11 and 4.0", but other place says it is "Fix for 000D's when migrating apps "

Did someone remember this one? I just want to have it documented and archived, not that I have any plans.

Hello, thanks for reply KO Myung-Hun.
...libraries such as libssh2 and OpenSSL ..
Just as a side note, I was like crazy trying to find libssh2 1.11.0 lib for OS/2. It turns out it is only on netlabs exp for the moment.

KO Myung-Hun do you think it can be possible to recompile K File Wizard with newer library links, in case it works.
Do you think is there an issue that our latest OpenSSL for OS/2 is 1.1.1l rel 1 (2021-08-31), while the last official one is 3.3.0 ?


General Discussion / Chuck McKinnis Passed Away
« on: May 19, 2024, 07:13:10 pm »
Dear Community Friends

Yesterday I found this news at his Facebook page. There were two posts from his daughters Kelly McKinnis  and Kimberly McKinnis. Even that I was not able to find an online obituary yet, I'm calculating he passed away on May 17.

I met Chuck on a couple of Warpstocks on the past and he was a nice and funny guy. He will be missed.

If you don't know who Chuck was, I have a little profile about him on the OS2World Wiki pages.
Here are some Chuck pictures from Warpstock:

Rest in peace Chuck.

Hello Neil

I tried K File Wizard with
I just put KCRYPTO.DLL i nthe same folder with kfw.exe

The software runs, but I tried a test SFTP. I get an error I can not connect to a directory with "System" encoding
I try it with UTF-8, it hangs here. The CPU spikes to 100% and I can only kill it with CAD and TOP.
On my Windows machine with Filezilla, I can connect to the test site.


Virtualization / Re: ArcaOS 5.1 on Apple Silicone
« on: May 17, 2024, 04:43:41 pm »
Hello Jean-Yves

I was checking the alternatives for a Mac with Apple Silicon to run ArcaOS. I don't know much about it since I don't have Macs.

If we go with the VirtualBox way to run ArcaOS as a guest, I found that there is an specific version of VirtualBox made for Apple Silicon. It is not on the main download page, but in the older releases pages:
It is listed on the 7.0.8 release as "Deloper preview for macOS / Arm64 (M1/M2) hosts"

Will it work on the M3 Apple Silicon? I guess I would need your help Jean-Yves to confirm if it works and if you can run ArcaOS there. But maybe it is only a virtualizer and does not emulate Intel.

I read yesterday that Broadcom has released Workstation Pro as freeware for non commercial use.
Thanks for sharing that. I found this post from may 13 that confirms that. I think it was a good move to try don't annoy the non-commercial/home users of it, and also maybe to try to get some space from VirtualBox.

HobbesArchive is up here:

I'm wondering, does KCRYPTO.DLL belongs to OpenSSL ??

The latest OpenSSL ( - 2021-08-31) I found has "crypto11.dll".
Will it be good to ask KO Myung-Hun to try to recompile "K File Wizard" with a newer DLL link? or I'm wrong here?

Hardware / Re: OS/2 for Industrial Use
« on: May 13, 2024, 06:57:35 pm »

Thanks for the link.  It has a good screenshot of the OS/2 software running.

It says:
Accurate measurements are made not only by using the right equipment, but also employing the right practices. The software environment dynamically builds VNA, spectrum analyzer, and power meter functionality from the instrument configuration and resource interconnections. Combined with a code base of over 30 years of microwave test and measurement experience, Cassini delivers streamlined multi-instrument test in a simple, more powerful test work flow. This expert system software enables a user to design and execute sophisticated microwave measurements accurately and reliably every time.

And there is a link to the Cassini 16 device brochure:$file/CASSINI.pdf

I don't know if I'm over simplifying it, but I think this device is to test wireless devices, I don't know if chipsets or full devices. Looks that is tests frequencies from 0 to 90Ghz.

Maybe this is out of my league to understand. I want to know if the Cassini 16 device can be managed/administrated with OS/2. Or the Cassini device is a stand alone device and the "RI System Software - Desktop (Cassini Virtual Workstation & OS License)" (that comes in a OVA with ArcaOS) it is to interpret the testing data.


PD: By the way, this is only for fun to add more things to the Wiki page. I don't know about wireless frequencies, I don't work on that field.

Just today a community member sent me a link about a different industrial device that uses ArcaOS.
But I don't understand right if it is a device for wireless testing and what exactly it does.

It sell a product that bundles ArcaOS on a VirtualBox OVA and I guess with their software:
- Cassini Virtual Workstation & OS License
It is used for "offline development" but I have no idea what is that for.

The site has good tutorials to support their product with ArcaOS, like:
- Configuring TCP/IP Settings on Cassini EPC (OS/2, eCS, ArcOS)
- Update to the latest Firefox web browser (ArcaOS)

Any ideas to explain me better what are they selling?


Programming / Development Help with INF2Html
« on: May 12, 2024, 06:46:48 pm »

I need some help with Inf2Html. There is an issue while transforming to HTML some borderless tables (I guess).
I have the issue documented here:

Since this is an open source command line tool, I don't know if someone with development skills can please help with this issue, if it is easy to find out.
