Hardware / Re: Question about USB Audio (Input / Output).
« on: August 28, 2020, 12:10:35 am »
Hi Lars,

First, I want to thank you for making these drivers available.  It's great to have sound!

I restored the original wav files and connected the C-Media CM119 device I received today and all the wav files played without issue.  The CM6533 device was definitely the problem, likely due to being a synchronous device, as Wim pointed out. 

Using the CM6533, all the dsk_*.wav files would loudly hiss, with the intended sound being heard faintly in the background.

I have attached my lsusb output for the CM6533 device.

If worst comes to worst, there's always the option of upconverting the wav files to 44.1kHz.

For the moment, I like your suggestion and have transcoded all the files.  I first tried using Saracon, which couldn't read the files, but dBpoweramp had no problem.

I'll test my setup with the other C-Media adapter I have coming tomorrow to determine if the CM6533 is the problem.

Wim, I generate the identical output, so it's the same.  I read that adaptive type devices run at exactly the speed the PC sends the data, within  their operating range, while synchronous devices slave to a provided clock signal and typically operate at fixed or a limited number of data rates.

Lars,  I am having problems with files having the following characteristics.

soxi dsk_opnw.wav

Input File     : 'dsk_opnw.wav'
Channels       : 1
Sample Rate    : 22050
Precision      : 16-bit
Duration       : 00:00:01.32 = 29216 samples ~ 99.3741 CDDA sectors
File Size      : 58.5k
Bit Rate       : 353k
Sample Encoding: 16-bit Signed Integer PCM

These work fine:

soxi applause.wav

Input File     : 'applause.wav'
Channels       : 1
Sample Rate    : 11025
Precision      : 8-bit
Duration       : 00:00:02.19 = 24091 samples ~ 163.884 CDDA sectors
File Size      : 24.1k
Bit Rate       : 88.4k
Sample Encoding: 8-bit Unsigned Integer PCM

There isn't a big selection of packages from which to choose while installing ArcaOS 5.0.5, I'm not sure what I might have missed.  I then applied your usbdrv234, following directions.

I have a C-Media CM119 device coming tomorrow.  That should tell me if it's something I borked during set up, or if it's a problem with the CM655 chip.

I will  add the UGREEN adapter (Model 30521)  (C-Media CM6533 chipset) 0d8c:0024 on the OS2World wiki.

You might want to wait as I'm still looking into resolving my issue with low bit rate WAV files.   Using a fresh ArcaOS install with Lars' latest drivers didn't resolve the issue, so either I'm doing something wrong, or the CM6533 is only partially supported.

Excellent, my first sounds from OS/2 under VMware!!!  I changed to the USB Audio 1.0 driver and then in Multimedia Setup, I deselected the UAC2 Adapter and selected the USB Adapter.  However, the dsk_*.wav files are distorted?

The UGREEN unit looks like a USB audio 1. Simple mono input, low quality stereo output.

USB Audio 2.0 looks like a DJ mixing station. In fact, I think that is what most of them are used for.

Thanks for the added info. The product description referred to a "Input USB 2.0 A" but was silent on the output.  Not knowing anything about USB audio, I assumed I needed a 2.0 driver.  I'll spend more time with a 1.0 driver.  If no joy, I'll order the SYB product which states it's "USB Audio Device Class Specification 1.0" and has a vendor/device ID that has been reported by Martin to work.

I'm looking forward to finally getting sound on VMware OS/2.  I thought I was stuck with broken virtualized audio and wasn't thinking USB passthrough until I saw these recent posts on USB audio.

1) Make sure you use the USB audio driver(s) from <DVD>:\CID\SERVER\ARCAPKG\USBAUD2.WPI. That is the one that gets installed with a NEW install. The other one, that gets installed with an UPDATE install is garbage.


I purchased the UGREEN adapter (Model 30521) on Amazon which has a C-Media CM6533 chipset.  I believe it's a 2.0 device.  Linux identifies the hardware ID as 0d8c:0024.  Using the above audio drivers, I only receive white noise.  I have tried Lars' USBAUD2.SYS drivers and don't hear anything. I suspect this is a non-supported chipset.   

I see Amazon sells the Syba adapter (Model SD-CM-UAUD) that has the device ID 0D8C:0008 which Martin has identified to work.

I occasionally use OS/2 PMfax (Keller Group, v.3.2h), now freeware, w. a serial Courier modem.  It's an excellent application.    I was having an intermittent hardware issue with my serial port using Vbox, but no issues using VMware.

Sorry, Net Use is working on my AOS and thought you might have an issue with syntax.   Error 59 is an unexpected network error which often is the result of a security negotiation error.

If you are trying to connect to a Linux samba share, try adding "ntlm auth = yes" in your smb.conf global section, which allows security negotiation to start with NTLMv1 (and above).  If it's a Windows share, there's an older post on this forum describing the steps to modify Windows security.

Try using the "net use" command:

net use [available drive]  [\\host\share] [password]


 net use w: \\sentinel\backup password

Applications / Re: Some questions about OS/2 Warp Server - Advanced?
« on: June 10, 2020, 12:24:50 am »
Advanced Server came with two boot floppies and two CDROMs, a system and option CD.  HPFS386 was included as part of the system CD and was not a separate CD that you find when purchasing the option separately.   

The Option CD contained "products that provide enhanced functions to your Warp Server and clients.  Everything from advanced network printing solutions, to SystemView Agents, a built in "Help Desk", migration help from NetWare to the award winning IBM Lan Server, and a client file synchronization solution."

Setup & Installation / Re: ArcaOS - in place upgrade - version 5.0.4
« on: June 03, 2020, 03:57:24 pm »
I had upgraded 5.0.3 to 5.0.4 via the provided upgrade process.  I was surprised the upgrade was uneventful as I am using HPFS 386 rather than JFS on my boot partition.

Applications / Re: Cumulus weather software for OS/2
« on: May 15, 2020, 10:59:29 pm »
Does anyone know where to find the last version of Cumulus weather software for OS/2? Cumulus was developede by Lone Peak Automation ........My beta version starts in ArcaOs, but error message popups stating, that the beta version time has expired.

Lone Peak eventually released their OS/2 House/2 X10 home automation software as freeware.  It's possible they did the same with their Cumulus software.

I suspect X-it is not able to add it's icon to this type of window.

Xit has a feature called an exception list, containing the names of programs that Xit should not perform its title bar functions on.

I'm with Ivan.  MS has a long history of unethical and hostile business practices. 

I can't forget Microsoft providing $40+ million to SCO at the time SCO was trying to extort money from companies that used Linux.   Had IBM not embraced Linux, I'm sure Microsoft would have directly attacked the legitimacy of Linux rather than using SCO as a proxy.
