Hi Valery,

I'm still trying to get vBox working on OS/2 on my Ryzen based computer.  I downloaded the vbox-os2-v5.0.51 and followed the instructions for installing but all I get when I try to run it is an error (see attachment).

I therefore have some questions.
1) does the vboxdrv.sys give any indication when it loads?  I see nothing when config.sys lists drivers, top and other process viewers don't show it either.
2) do you think I am missing something obvious?  If so what should I be looking for?

Any suggestions or other ideas.

As a check, have you tried using a live Linux DVD with firefox from there (most Linux live DVDs are using firefox 60 or later).  This will check if the new twitter requires a firefox version later than the one we have.

Assuming you have a good backup of that partition then the safest way to proceed is format the partition and restore the data.

I had that happen to me once and the 'format/restore' was the only way out.  Depending on how old the disk is and what it's highest temperature has been you might need to run the manufacturers linux based disk tools to check if there are low level problems, bad sectors, no reserve sectors left to use, etc.

I see many references to Intel processors but I have a question.  Will OS/4 work with a Ryzen 3 2200G with built in graphics 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).

I ask because I have a spare computer now I have upgraded my main computer to a Ryzen 5 2400G processor unit and would like to test OS/4 on the old unit.

I used to use it for Seti at Home but that stopped working 9 years ago and I haven't tried since.  It might work depending on what you want to run.

Now all we need is a vBox host for OS/2 that works as well as your additions.

Just a thought, you did eject the usb stick before you removed it?  If you didn't that will cause the chkdsk problem you are seeing.

I have to admit I am using the Odin install from my old Warp 4.52 CP install (I just copied the Odin directory across to my Ryzen box).

That being said I have no problem running IrfanView (picture editing) and Photofilter7 (photo editing).  I used to have a few others running but haven't tried them in over 12 months.

I have a nasty feeling that the only way you will get this working on ArcaOS is by using VirtualBox and even that can be problematic depending on your hardware (example: Vbox just runs on one of my Ryzen based computers but don't try and do anything with it) an older computer is better.

Others might have had better luck.

Sorry I missed out mentioning that.  I've had everything working here for the last 30 years that I didn't even think about it.

Applications / Re: New verssion of VLC
« on: June 08, 2019, 10:13:06 pm »
I just downloaded it and tried it.  I used the way I always have with VLC, put vlc.exe and icon in the lib dir and run it from there.  It works but does give video distortion when I close a video, this could be because I haven't changed any of the settings which I may need to do.

Now to get sound working on this Ryzen machine and I should be happy.

Sorry it doesn't appear to work for you.  I haven't tried that section yet, my main use is dividing up multi language PDFs into separate language versions for a client.

First question, is the IP address of a different separate machine running a SMB/CIFS server?

Second question, what shows up in file manager when you click on 'network'?

Third thing, if you don't have a samba server running no matter what you are doing you are not going to find anything.  For example, on my network I have 3 NAS boxes that each run a SMB/CIFS server, I am also running samba servers on 3 of my computers.  All of those are visible to any samba client on the network.

OK, that still requires that you get the Linux networking setup correctly.

The problem will still be viewing anything on the disks of your win 10 machine. Ubuntu should be able to read the win10 drive partitions (you can do that with a live linux usb/dvd so a full install makes it easy) the problem comes from just how vbox running on linux on usb will see the SMB/CIFS server that only works when win10 is running (since Ubuntu is the operating system when running from your USB, win does not start the SMB/CIFS server therefore any samba drives will not be visible).

OK, first check what the network settings are for your Linux install Find under 'Preferences' -- 'Network', it should open showing the basic network connection information (connection speed, IPv4 address, IPv6 address,hardware address, default route, DNS) if you don't have an IPv4 address in the range supplied by the DHCP server of your router you have problems which need to be fixed first.

The 'gear' symbol, bottom right, opens a page that allows you to edit settings except for the 'Details' page.

Once you are satisfied the network settings are correct you can close the network window.

Now open either the 'Computer'  or 'Home' 'File Browser' window and click on 'Network' down arrow, then click on what is displayed, this should open a window showing all items it can read (it generally shows SMB/CIFS items as 'Windows Network', double clicking on that should show all your running SMB/CIFS servers (remember you will not see your win 10 box because it is not running while you are booted into your live linux USB stick).

I hope this helps bur remember I am using a full Linux Mint install on a real computer whereas you are using a live linux from a bootable USB.
