To be fair, dfsee did see the drive and what was going on, it generally mimicked what one would expect from a fresh out of the wrapper kingston data traveller. aka.. FAT32.

I wasn't able much to figure dfsee out. I guess if I search there is a good video on youtube or a manual that will take me by the hand?

So the solution that worked for me.
Boot Knoppix.
  wipefs --all /dev/sdX
  wipefs --all /dev/sdXY

  Device>Partition Table MSDOS

Write everything out. Let Arcaos boot up from HD.
    minilvm - Set Drive Letter - Write.


After that, all 16gb was available. I guess something in ArcaOS REALLY doesn't like it if something on a USB device doesn't have what it's expecting.

 I've been having USB thumb drive issues and was going to give reformat a try.
 When I try to start reformat I get the error:
 "[LVM4101] Unable to initialize the LVM engine."

  Can anyone hazard a guess as to what the problem might be?

Setup & Installation / Installing Rsync.
« on: March 20, 2018, 03:55:50 pm »
I used OS/2 for about ten years, I have not touched it for a decade, but purchased ArcaOS in order to refresh my memory. I have been trying to install rsync in order to rapidly move files between ArcaOS and Unix based systems.

I first went here and download/extracted rsync.

When I tried to rsync some files, I was told:
rsync failed to execute ssh.

Ok.. Fair enough, maybe ssh is not installed by default.
So I did a yum install openssh-clients - and basically ended up with error: unpacking RPM.

Looks like the exact same problem, I'm having is documented here:

Anyone else tripped over this problem and solved it?


General Discussion / Any Interest in a Hardware Database?

I've used this site before:

It has been helpful several time, when trying to install ubuntu on hardware that is unfamiliar to me.

Recently, I was able to install ArcaOS 5.0.2 on an HP Pavilion s3720y with an Evo 850 SSD.
There were several steps to be made in the installer to make this happen. It would be helpful to have a place to document this, so as to cut down on time to install for someone installing on the same hardware.

Does such a place exist?

Below you will find what I've coubled together, the three post I can't see to find (or that I remember)...
1) When was April 15th set as a release date? 2) When was March 31st set as a release date (maybe way back at a warpstock)? and 3) there was a short post written after I think the missed 31st, about a week later, that said something to the effect of sorry we have communicated more, be we are all engineers working on the product. Does anyone have references and sources to those three document? I should have took some screen shots at the time.

 I'm putting together a little article on my experience purchasing and installing ArcaOS.
 One of the sections I was going to put in place, was the painful moving release dates.
 But, the news I find at:
 I think there is at least one missing post, and I believe the posting dates aren't right?
 Does anyone have the original dates and messages archived anywhere?
