Another thing I would like to have is a reliable bluetooth driver.

I'm not quite the cat 4 you mention but I have been using OS/2 since version 1.1.

Looking at what is available from rpm/yum it appears that most is aimed at developers.  When I had my business I employed an OS/2 programmer to tailor OS/2 to our clients needs.  In my retirement now (20 years) I use what I need to keep my mind active.

As for remembering what programs I have they are started by a cmd file on the desktop where necessary or directly from the program object (begin libpath works wonders).  I do know which of the 3 hard disks they are on or if they are on one of the two NAS boxes because that is a carry-over from my working life.

The attached pic gives the layout of the disks on this working machine.

Thanks for your input.

Well said Andi, you put my thoughts down better than I could.

Sorry Andi, you missed my point which was/is that we shouldn't have to search all over to try and find the necessary parts for a program to run, they should all be there and if necessary have a note in the 'readme' file that states they should be put in a different dir.  My experience with previous versions of VLC has been that they work with everything together in the VLX2 dir and sub dirs.

Here we are seeing my biggest complaint - new programs that don't supply ALL the required extra bits (dll etc.) and no rpm/yum is not the answer.

It sounds as if the real answer would be a 64 bit kernel and support programs.  Something I assume will never happen.

And the difference between Paul's and Roderick's result is down to Paul using a real OS and Roderick using a pretend OS which gathers personnel information for those that would try and rule the world.

I can never understand your setup.  I have ArcaOS v5.0.7 as a standard setup with c a couple of exceptions, the boot drive C: is hpfs and the swap file is on D:  I get

[C:\]mem /v

Total physical memory:      7,906 MB
Accessible to system:       3,311 MB
Additional (PAE) memory:    4,595 MB

Resident memory:              193 MB
Available virtual memory:   2,590 MB

Available process memory:
  Private low memory:         213 MB
  Private high memory:      2,240 MB
  Shared low memory:          149 MB
  Shared high memory:       2,160 MB


  SWAPPATH=D:\ 2048 2048

My test setup on my Ryzen third generation processor is very much the same.

Hi Eugene,

One thing I forgot to mention.  I have never tried using USB to install any OS/2 - ArcaOS, I always use a DVD drive.  It may take a little more work but a SATA DVD drive always works even if you have to get long cables and pass them through port at the back of the case.  I now have one from a defunct  laptop that I put in a case equipped with long SATA and power cables.

Thanks Paul.  The answer appears to be 'maybe', I suppose I should try it to find out.  Have you put together a zip or wpi WITH EVERYTHING INCLUDED TO RUN IT?

Hi Martin,
Since you have it running maybe you can tell me if it will run something like NoScript and Ad Block the two things I will not run a browser without.

Hi Dave, and a merry Christmas and new year to you.

Yes I do have the full zip (4 plus meg).  I would put it up here but the last time I tried with a zip larger than 2 meg it doesn't accept it.

Which one are you trying to install?  The one with eCS is ONLY for eCS the one I am talking about is a universal OS/2 version from HOBLink, it does not ask for anything during the install except where you want it installed (the default is D:\HOBX11).  If all you have is the one from the eCS install CD then you are dead in the water from the start.

Why play about with the sCS version when the HOBLink X11 server for OS/2 works with ArcaOS, at least my ver 3.5 does although I seldom use it now.
