There has been versions of FF where loading both code and data high worked fine here

The same is here. I always mark  data and code of FF to be loaded into HiMem  - so far it works ok.

I can no longer get Firefox 45.9.0 to play Youtube movies. It used to work in the past but I cannot remember when that would no longer work.
Is this a known problem ? And is there a solution ?

Hi Lars

I have just checked  - it works here as usually.

Expanding the width does not help. Pls suggest how to increase the height ?
With the mouse pointer like any other window you want to resize.

Tnx. I had "3D border width" set to 0. That is why  my X-Centre was not height re-sizeable.

So far it works ok, but graph in CPU pulse a little bit out of screen.
More than a little bit, over 50% pulse graph does'nt show at all.

The widget relies on XCenter to give it the dimensions of its window - and sometimes XCenter gets it wrong. If that's the case here, then you can easily fix this.

First, expand the width of the widget; the graph will redraw itself. Wait a moment, then restore it to your desired size; again, the graph will be redrawn. Does this fix the problem? If not, try increasing the height of XCenter. Let it reformat itself, then restore the original height.

One or the other of these resizing actions should cause the graph to be drawn correctly. If not, please let me know.

Expanding the width and height do not help.

Is there any possibility to read Virtual Address Limit from DosQuerySysInfo but not from config.sys ?

Had to convert it to a DOC file.  It is not allowed to upload a log file.  I have attached the doc file.

It looks good. Try to play with RUN= statements in your config.os4

When booting up with the os4krnl, there is approximately a 25 second delay after the cmd.exe is loaded before boot up continues.  Any idea why this happens?

Could you show your kernel log ?  (copy kernlog$ DG.log)

Are you interested in Results using OS/4 kernel with OS4ACPI on Thinkpad 25 with Intel Core i7 7500U CPU?

Yes, it is interesting.

I have got it up and running, OS/4 kernel starts in log mode, so I can see a lot of messages during start.

So far I discovered the following traps wich do not occure once I use the 14.201SMP Kernel with the same OS/2 4.52 based system (not ArcaOS). I have the latest QSINIT installed and from that I am using that Bootmenue where I can switch between different config.sys files. So I am able to boot what I want to use.

Traps so far (again: does not happen with kernel 14.201SMP):

- starting DOSBOX freeze WPS
- sometimes opening Drives (Icon view) freeze WPS (50%)

I have never head about this behavior.  Need more testing.

Will OS/4 work with a Ryzen 3 2200G with built in graphics (?)

Some HW with Ryzen is reported as working:
https://www.os2world.com/wiki/index.php/Phoenix_OS/4#OS.2F4_Tested_Hardware_List

and if so, what do I need to change on my OS/2 4.52 CP image to make it work (has to be from the image file as there are no USB 3 drivers and the installer doesn't work - not enough memory with 4GB for some reason).

http://gus.biysk.ru/os4/os2krnlSVN5537_unoff.zip  includes the required binaries and HowTo file with an instruction.

Pls, let me know if something is unclear. I am also curious about the results of installation.

Mark some DLLs such as xul.dll to load code high. open and close the app, Thunderbird in this example. use Theseus to look at the shared memory summery, there will be a zombie hole the same size as xul.dll.

Tnx Dave

Makes me wonder if the OS4 programmers were able to overcome the zombie memory hole kernel bug.

Hi David

This bug was fixed in OS/4 kernel long ago.

The QT dlls could be marked to load high, but then run into the zombie memory hole kernel bug unless something keeps them loaded.

Hi Dave

Pls explain  what do you mean by "zombie memory hole kernel bug" ?

Which will likely coincede with the end of OS/2 for me.

Hi Lars,
Thank you for your efforts! I really hope that you will stay with OS/2 no matter what.

Is ACPI necessary with OS4?

ACPI is optional in many cases. But some systems with broken or missing MP table need it to run in SMP mode.
