Something looks wrong with the file dates. They are all 17-May-2021

Seems to be the upload date from my machine to I think there is no way to preserve the original dates of the files when you upload a file there.

Also, yesterday night, I also uploaded a 2021-05 backup of hobbes I made with HTTPTrack.

With this, I expect,  people will have access to the backup in case we decided to delete some old software versions in hobbes. I still need to think more about it and discuss it.

For ArcaOs 5, all drivers is included ? i need separed packages ?

Hi, that is the idea of ArcaOS, to have all possible included. It has the USB drivers, ACPI driver, and a lot more software included on the installer directly. Version 5.0.6 is the latest version available.  You can check some of the changelogs.

Hi badre, welcome to the forum.

I also suggest you not to buy eComStation, because it is not longer updated. ArcaOS is being actively developed and supported. It will save you a lot of time on putting OS/2 Warp 4.52 (or eComstation) up to date with the latest DLLs libraries and software that is available for the platform.

It can be also a nice exercise to install OS/2 Warp 4.52 on your T42 first, but I think you will be happier with ArcaOS.



As a first step, I had uploaded an old Hobbes 2020-02 backup I have on

I will upload an 2021-05 backup too.



Just in case, this weekend, I will take a full backup of hobbes and put it on just to leave it archived. I guess nobody will get mad for it.


I don't like the Hobbes situation either. It's just to unsafe to rely on a single server. I'm glad that Ian's server exists and am not sure if we need another mirror.

I agree on not rely on a single server. I encourage to backup everything on the Internet Archive just in case.

Comments, Suggestions & Questions / Hobbes (Files) Reoganization
« on: May 14, 2021, 05:38:59 pm »

I still have the "itchiness" to reorganize some files in hobbes, and even also some other places like OS2site.
But I hold back, some people may not like reorganizing and renaming of the files, some other may tell me "do not bother on that", and it is also a huge task.

Also there have been no reply from the hobbes administrator on my offer to help and have a quicker access to modify file descriptions of the database and been able to move files to the corresponding directory.

And also, it is big job to try organize all the OS/2 software available. From one side I think it is good to keep all the versions of the software, but from the other side I understand that some sites (like hobbes) should only have the latest version (with the exception of drivers). Times has change and storage space is not problem for OS/2 programs like it was on the past. (like my crazy OHFOWG and the OS2World Github (7GB) )

My concern with OS/2 preservation had been growing when I saw how old software disappears from the internet (some can not be found even on the waybackmachine). I don't want to delete anything. I hopefully will like to backup the old things with the old names in different items and later focus in the working apps, latest versions and renaming and moving the files.

What do you think?

- Should I try to make my own public file repository? If I try that I will need help, I don't want more server administration with that.
- Should I keep trying to improve hobbes order in this slow way of uploading files with .txt template file?
- Should I take care that "itchiness" with some other thing and forget this thing?

Ian, (he runs the os2site), your opinion is important for me. 

I also want to do something collaborative with the help of several people since it is a big task.

I checked the link/file using online totalvirus and he found nothing.
The virus was found under my windows system protected by licenced Avast tool and firefox avast plug-in.
Yes, Windows and even the latest Firefox for Windows are detecting some OS/2 files and .cmd files as virus. All xcenter widgets are detected as virus while they are not.

Thanks for the link Wim.

Remy, can you let me know which virus is detecting and with which AV? ClamAV?

I had tried the installer on my ArcaOS VM and it searchs for a valid eComStation license. But the files looks ok with me.


... stay well away from the OS4 kernel as its legality is questionable and Arca Noae doesn't want to upset IBM.
Hi Dave

For me, to stop questioning the legality of OS4 Kernel, I'm using the US copyright law section 107.
If you are using OS4 for non-profit research or education it is under fair use.

For further discussion on this subject, let's open different thread.


Hi Charles

Now I get you are using Warp 3 with no fixpacks.  Since you are back with VGA support and no trap error I guess you know need to get a decent resolution on your Warp 3 box.

I'm guessing yours is a hobbie machine and it is not an vital machine used on some industry. Otherwise it is very important to backup the full HDD image, just in case.

I would also vote to get "" (Latest freeware) - (or even - older) installed there but the "no fixpacks" in Warp 3 may be an issue.

If I don't recall it wrong the latest US Warp 3 fixpacks is Fixpack 40. ... I don't recall if FP43 was only for Warp 4 Server. I also have this quick article on how to install those IBM fixpacks from the HDD.


Hi Charles. Welcome to the forum.

Can you give us a little description of the machine where OS/2 is running?
- Which version of OS/2 are you running 2.0 or Warp 3 (You can execute a "ver /r" on the command line).
- What software is the one that is critical on that OS/2 system?
- Does the computer has some special hardware that needs to be supported?

Maybe with that we can give you a better idea which driver to use and if it is possible to easily go the Warp 4.52 or even ArcaOS if you want to acquire it.

I want to see if I can try eThemes on ArcaOS. 

I can not find the ""

Jeramie told me it is ok with that being freeware and I want to try to see if I can install it on ArcaOS.


Hi Ibrahim.
If anybody may be interested, I am willing to start a bounty for a well-rounded release of QEMU...

I support your bounty idea. In my experience I think it will be better to find the developer first, know how much he is asking for the service and then push to get the funds.


I am just a fan of qemu and just recently bought ArcaOS for myself.

Welcome to the OS2World forum !! Welcome to the OS/2 Community !!!
I get very happy to get new people around  ;D
