I installed the beta on my Thinkpad W500 with Intel 5100 WiFi. The new software seems to work as well as the old, plus the enhancements to the properties screens shows the versions of my installed software. The new DHCP client gets an address with no problems.

I can connect on either 802.11g and 802.11n with WPA2 security.

Setup & Installation / Wacom Graphire tablet

I saw the great page on digitizer support for os2 which shows a lot of support, but not for my old Wacom Graphire USB tablet. I visited the 1drop website and downloaded support for my tablet.

I described what I did my website.

My only issue so far is for mouse button 2. I can't seem to activate mouse button 2 on the stylus. But the rest works well.

Another book available is "Who Says Elephants Can't Dance?" by Louis V. Gerstner, Jr., the chairman and CEO of IBM from April 1993 until March 2002. Gerstner claims that his greatest achievement at IBM was to kill OS/2.

There was a paper presented at Warpstock 2013 on how to report a bug.

Networking / Re: OS/2, Realtek and NIC drivers

Well, what does it mean to say

neither TCP/IP nor MPTN worked


Many times with the Realtek drivers, and I mean all of them, I had to specify the Network Address in the driver parameters. Then it worked fine. If this has happened to you, you'd install, get no error messages, and things in general won't work.

More important, if you try netstat -n, you'll discover that the physical address of the network adapter is 0. If you correct this with the Network Address parameter, networking will work well.

I also got my W500 camera working using the x200tc package and the setup string Alex Taylor used.
Code: [Select]
Device=n:\os2\boot\usbecd.sys /D:17EF:4807:3134 /N:$CHICON$The capture often freezes, but I have captured snapshots or shown video at every resolution.

I'd love to try WebLook and WebView on the W500, if such a thing is possible.

Hi Martin (or anyone who knows),

I'm looking at all the code you uploaded to github, so I now wonder if you resolved the problem of using SmartGit with github.

I'm seeing this problem also on a Lenovo ThinkCentre M72e. I'm hoping for a solution from Mensys in time.

I put up some more programming books today. Here's the link so you don't have to scroll up to the beginning of the thread.

Thanks, everyone, for your support.

Fear not. I am dedicated to keeping OS/2 and eComStation alive. However, I have run out of space to store all my OS/2 historical items. What is for sale is all of the duplicate items. I will continue to add items to the list, so check the URL for ebay from time to time.

I would like to find a museum or collector on the West Coast of USA who has room and the inclination to preserve all this stuff.

I have added the IBM Developer Connection collection to the list of items for sale. I now have enough sales to use the eBay international shipping, so you can see the cost right away.

Setup & Installation / Re: UEFI & SecureBoot?

I struggled with a UEFI system (IBM X Series) server, and eCS 2.2 beta simply does not recognize the SATA hardware. It fails even in compatibility mode with
Which model of X-series?  I run one old one that has SCSI drives but another slightly newer one (still rather old) will not work with SAS drives.  I haven't got one with actual SATA drives to test.

This is the x 3200  M3, so it has SAS. You can plug a SATA drive into the SAS slot. The machine is fine with it, and the drive appears in other OS. The SATA controller is the Intel PCH, which is supported, but support fails because of the above message. I know nothing about SAS, and I was surprised to see SATA connectors. Here is the PCI dump for the controller.

This message normally applies when DANIS506 has already occupied the adapter (see OS2AHCI's RMRC_RES_ALREADY_CLAIMED message). Changing the boot sequence (1st: OS2AHCI, 2nd: DANIS506) should work.

If not, consider opening a ticket in

I don't have to change the boot sequence -- that is the default. It's probably futile to open a ticket because I no longer have access to the hardware. The strength of a forum over the ticketing system is that the forum is indexed, so in the future someone could find my comment. I try to do both, with a pointer to the ticket in the forum.

I'm selling off the duplicate and unneeded items from OS/2 Museum West. Proceeds will support the Museum.

The items will ship fast via USPS priority mail and are available to ship world-wide through the eBay Global Shipping Program.

I am looking for help to store and curate the Museum. If you would like to physically store the museum, you will have access to a very large collection for your interest in OS/2. The collection is currently in Santa Cruz, CA and weighs over 1000 pounds.
