Applications / Arca 5.0.6 - lost status bar!
« on: January 19, 2021, 08:55:37 pm »
I must have screwed something up, I've lost my status bar. Clicking on "View" shows menu bar active, but status bar is greyed out!  Shared Directories still works but no updated menu bar with File,Machine,View,Input,Devices & help enteries. This is running ArcaOS 5.0.6 as a virtual machine.
Anybody got any ideas as to how to restore a status bar?

Thanks  klipp

Applications / Lost Amouse Widget
« on: September 13, 2020, 04:07:46 am »
I've suddenly lost my "AN Removable Widget Monitor" (ArcaOS 5.0.6). This has happened twice now, the first time I simply clicked on the taskbar and, add widget, and was able to select the Removable Widget and it re-created the widget on the taskbar. But now when trying to add the widget once more, the selection is no longer available in the add widget selection list.
Is there a way I can re-create this option in "add widget" and get back the removable widget so that I can once again use USB sticks?


Internet / socket () fails: Protocol family not supported
« on: August 27, 2020, 12:14:26 am »
I get this error iduring boot of ArcaOS 5.0.3. This is not a problem with ArcaOS 5.0.3 rather a problem with ME! I've inadvertantly screwed something up and have no idea how to attack this error.  Is it possible there is something I might copy from another ArcaOS install (I have 5.0.2 thru 5.05 installed   and working!) that would fix this problem?
Thanks for any ideas, I know next to nothing about sockets & Protocols.


Applications / Samba problem with ArcaOS 5.0.5
« on: August 22, 2020, 01:55:37 am »
I have SAMBA installed on two partitions 5.0.4 as drive D: and 5.0.5 as drive as drive C: alongside each other on the same ssd. 5.0.4 works great. using the identical setup steps for 5.0.5 Samba boots up but almost imeadiatly SMBD dies. It looks like the setup of the Samba passwords (I use root & root) is processed but don't actually work.. Selecting Samba users and groups won't open because it says the passwords aren't legiminate.
  Anybody got 5.0.5 setup and running w/o problems?

Thanks for any ideas.    klipp

Applications / VirtualBox Shared Folders question
« on: April 25, 2020, 08:33:15 pm »
I'm running ArcaOS 5.0.4 as a virtual machine on SuSE Linux Tumbleweed. I have 2 installs of ArcaOS running, one on drive K: and the other on drive C:. Is there anyway I can share a folder and move files between these two drives?

Thanks for any advice


I've gotten this error on two different machines with ArcaOS 5.0.3 while changing the I.P: for use on my Lan. The I.P changes correctly and all is well, but on rebooting I always get the same error. I've been unable to figure out how to get rid of this error (it actually causes no problems, except for the halt it causes during booting) which is a PITA!
Any ideas would really be appreciated.  Thanks

Applications / LxLite syntax question
« on: September 26, 2018, 09:52:19 pm »
What is the correct LxLite command line syntax for uncompressing ACPI3_23_01.PAT to produce an acceptable ACPI.PSD for OS4 SVN5238 or 5239?
Also is anyone willing to share a copy of ACPI4.BPD? I realize my chances of this happening are "Slim and None" and  Slim left town with one of my Ex-Wives!

Thanks  klipp

Applications / Samba and ArcaOS?
« on: January 19, 2018, 03:02:57 am »
Samba has worked great here ever since the later ArcaOS betas. Now I can't get it to work on ArcaOS any more. I've tried this on both AMD & Intel based machines and get the same problems. The machines are listed in "Network Neighborhood" but shared subdirectories are not listed so sharing can't take place. Samba still works fine on eCS box in the LAN. This seems to have started possibly after one of the many YUM updates.
I keep thinking I've screwed up inadverantly, but making the same mistake on two different machines that used to work fine is a stretch.
Thanks in advance for any comments (good or bad!)
