Storage / ArcaOS USB floppy drive letter assignment
« on: October 19, 2020, 03:52:09 pm »
I have installed ArcaOS 5.0.6 to a PC with no internal floppy drives.
ArcaOS still reserves drives A; and B: for nonexistent drives, and when I attach a USB floppy drive and refresh removable media, the drive is mounted as E:
Unfortunately, the installation program I run off of the floppy disk is hard-coded to look on drive A: or B:, so it cannot proceed.
Is there a way i can make the USB floppy drive attach as drive A:?

Multimedia / PC Speaker output to sound card?
« on: April 02, 2020, 07:03:33 pm »
Background:  I am working with medical device software running in eComStation 2.1 on a virtual machine (currently VirtualBox 6.1). The host OS is Windows 10. The software uses the dosbeep API call to generate its audible alarms (which, as you can imagine for a medical device, are important).  Unfortunately, VirtualBox does not support PC speaker output for OS/2 family operating systems.

Is there any way, at the OS level, to redirect PC speaker output (or even just dosbeep specifically) to the sound card?
