Networking / Re: Which NIC to buy?
« on: March 17, 2019, 05:17:17 pm »
The Intel I210 should work. The chip wasn't initially support by MMIGB, so I had no luck when testing it first.

The bug tracker thread is here. According to that, it should work now. I'll test the PCIe card with this chip the next weeks again.

It is great to see finally (referring to the old Mensys/XEU days) some progress for the present of the platform.
The next feature regarding the survival of OS/2 will probably be a driver for USB 3.

Remember that ArcaOS 5.0.0 was released on May 15, 2017, and it had eclipsed any eComStation functionality in only one year.
BTW: That's not entirely true. ArcaOS bases on all the development that was made prior for eCS 2.2 beta 2 and thereafter (by almost the same people, now within a new environment). There were several years we saw eCS dying before the release of ArcaOS 5.0.0.

The version you propose is not the one I have installed now, in fact I have Borland c ++ V2.0 for os2.
Even when you use an old compiler, always use the newest toolkit. Always make sure that the toolkit paths come before the paths of the outdated compiler in your command file that sets the environment.

eCSoft/2 has a new item since yesterday: EAclean 1.2 by David Azarewicz.

Its option -c removes UID, GID, MODE, INO, RDEV, GEN, FLAGS EAs.

When I read this, I remember that I'd wondered weeks ago where they come from? VACPP v3.08?

Programming / Re: eWorkplace ini file entries?

Yes, all versions (XWP, eWPS and XWPS) use the same ini keys.

Why Arca Noae rather than bitwise?

I can't find Dave's original thread (searching on gives only outdated results). But see the text on Steve's page, right column, mozturbo.

So, it looks like a kernel problem.

Edit: It's the mozturbo thread.

Should I report this to bitwise?
Rather to Arca Noae.

Alfredo just added a report to the Arca Noae bug tracker: Laptop screens are not turned off automatically.

Applications / Re: Virtualaddresslimit and Disk Free space, Questions
« on: January 23, 2019, 11:14:08 pm »
VAL is a kernel instruction. You have to set it in CONFIG.SYS. While you can set environment variables in CONFIG.SYS and in a command line or in any other environment, the other lines of CONFIG.SYS can't be set from outside.

Environment variables have a preceded SET. Note the difference for all kernel instructions. If you open a command prompt and type SET, you'll get all environment variables that are defined for the current environment, while CONFIG.SYS environment variables are global. You won't find a line with VIRTUALADDRESSLIMIT in the output of the SET command.

BTW: The main problem with OS/2 and huge applications like Mozilla or AOO is that they consume a huge amount of shared memory. If you don't make them use higher memory above 512 MB, you most likely can't make them run for a longer time. Higher memory address space is required for them, mainly for shared memory. You can tag DLLs to use higher memory over 512 MB with a "newer" kernel. VAL should be set to a maximum value. Its maximum is 4096, but a value over 2048 seems to make problems for many.

Set it to 2048 if you have a few hundreds MB more physical RAM. Install a new kernel and load Mozilla DLLs (mainly XUL.DLL) and AOO DLLs high (with HIGHMEM.EXE or ABOVE512.EXE). For Mozilla, use also Dave's mozturbo to improve the time until Mozilla traps. As an alternative, you could also try an OS/4 kernel.

The hard disk space can't be related to that. The above handles about address and memory space.

Thanks, Lars. Quite hidden (at least for me), I've searched for it several times before.

I have people on my ignore list and want to add one more. Apparently that feature is not available anymore from my profile pages. How can I change the ignore list?

update in 2018 [...] "Added ability to use CADH.SYS for force kill option."
No, that feature is included since many years. I guess more than 10 years. (Note that e.g version 2.0 is from 2010.)

You can report this to the author. The email address in README.txt. Send him .TRP file.
Thanks Digi, I'll do that. Give me some time, about a week. (First I want to install the newest exceptq and try it on another system. Currently, I don't have it installed.)

The new version traps here as well in libc066.dll.
