AMD now promising new BIOS, which should work for Arca, OS/2, and eCS

Hope this helps.

Thanks Miezko for the tip to fix my VLC\2 from crashing at the end of every mp4 video.  It locked up the whole computer and needed a reboot.  Now it works great.   Thanks again.

Hardware / Re: Cloning OS2 with different Motherboard

Due to differences in MB you are probably going to have to do a reinstall from the original disks as some of the drivers are different.  I have been able to do such a clone and reboot, but to similar MB.  One other thing you could try is to take the original physical boot drive and put it into the new MB and see if it boots.  HTH

My thoughts are that having an OS with no viruses, no weekly security updates and the ability to keep using my 20 year old bookkeeping program and my text email (instead of awful HTML ) at ever increasing speed with Ryzen CPU and Radeon video with USB-3  and gigabit network speed are fine for me.

Seems you are interested in e-mail so you could use your web browser to access it in some cases or a Thunderbird for OS/2 version is available or PM Mail is pretty up to date this year and does well as a text email program.  Current Spreadsheet available in Apache Open Office 4 .17 version for OS/2 from BitWise Works.  Hope you feel free to let us know if we can help.

Setup & Installation / Re: ArcaOS WinOS/2 printers?
« on: July 30, 2020, 10:22:41 pm »
With the newer Arca 5.0.5 CUPS printer install it's possible to install lots of specific printers, but they are then ARCA printers.  If you need to specifically boot Windows and use the printer that's a different issue.  So to help we need to know which program, which file format, which OS you want to boot, and exactly which printer you want to print to.  That data would help us give you some assistance.

Setup & Installation / Re: How to have quantity and quality of memory

Any idea how this interacts with a large RAM disk, and since you can't use the RAM disk in your swap path, would a smaller RAM disk work better with larger swap file?

Thanks. AOO now works again.   Only thing it installed this time vs several previous attempts was " libxslt " and I don't know how that didn't get put in before when I tried.  Appreciate the feedback.  I also donated a bit more to BitWise for the AOO project.

I had AOO 4.1.7 working, but after recent ANPM dll updates it quit working and I get the message Neil mentioned at the beginning of this thread.  I tried all the suggestions and it's still not working.  Anyone have any recent suggestions?
I'm really stuck without my AOO to work with.

I am using a KVM from AirLink 101 for Keyboard and mouse with 1 PS/2 port on each computer and a splitter cable for the mouse & keyboard.  The Arca 5.0.5 USB 3 is working fine on my 2 machines.  I have a separate HDMI splitter for video as the new MBs don't have VGA outputs that work for me.  The HDMI shifts automatically when I turn on a different computer, but also has a small remote.  Very happy with Arca!

Just updated a  Arca 5.04 computer to an ASRock B450 -HDV r4.0 motherboard Ryzen 5-00 with 8 gig Ram. Video is a VisionTek card with 2gig Ram & Radeon 5400. Started OK and network connects right away. I use PS/2 KB & Mouse, so OK.  No USB at present. Made a 4 gig Ram Drive (G:) which works.
Haven't checked sound yet.  Airboot seems to have an issue on an SSD, but a metal SATA boots fine.

Does anyone know what all the AMD bios settings are for? Is hyperthreading OK.  I am trying to turn them on & off to see what works, but any help appreciated.

Here with Arca 5.04 I have Firefox ESR 45.5 .   It came labeled 45.9, not sure how.
Hopefully Falkon soon on QT5 for Arca.
