Web applications / FF 38.x ArcaOS - speed
« on: October 05, 2017, 12:44:41 am »

I found FF 38.X under ArcaOs very slower than FF under windows using the same connection and HW.
I then searched on internet to find some tweek to improve the speed.

- I have a fiber link which could go up to 75Mbps (from time to time and mostly near 50Mbps)

I found following link and changed following parms as suggested :

Under " about:config "

    network.http.pipelining : true (défaut : false )
    network.http.pipelining.maxrequests : 60 (défaut : 32 )
    network.http.max-connections : 192(défaut : 256 )
    network.http.max-connections-per-server : 48(défaut : 15 )
    network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-proxy : 42(défaut : 8 )
    network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-server : 10 (défaut : 6 )

Activated experimental turbo mode (I do not know if this parm is helpfull or not  !)
Adding  new name with " booléenne " value :
     browser.turbo.enabled : true

After FF restart, I didn't recognize it how fast it is (big step forward)


Hardware / Lexmark CS510DE laser color printer success
« on: October 02, 2017, 10:02:01 pm »

I could install and use Lexmark laser color printer from under ArcaOs, firefox and Openoffice

I changed my old HP printer for a nex lexmark CS510DE laser color printer I could find for a very low price
( less than 170€ original tonner cartriged included able to print about 6000 black pages or 4000 color pages )
I installed it in my local network.
I downloaded CUPS package from lexmark web site
The the cups package, I copied Lexmark_CS510_Series.ppd from under "GlobalPPD_1.4" folder included under the package into

Edit Lexmark_CS510_Series.ppd and remove line :
*cupsFilter: "application/vnd.cups-postscript 0 /usr/lib/cups/filter/fax-pnh-filter"
(this line generates an error and it makes the printer not work)
onces it is removed, save the file.

Now, use "Install CUPS Printer" wizard tool.
If the CS510 printer isn't under Lexmark entry, select  "Other printer" and then select the above PPD file.
Be sure your printer is network connected and ready. Note its IP@ ( select a static ip@ if you are going through a DHCP server under which you can reserve a static ip@ range )
Next step are as usual, use socket which is the default
From under CUPS administration, printers, you can print a test page.

Be carrefull :
To print with the correct font size, change printer setting from 4800 colors to 1200dpi (1200ppp) and all is right then as well under CUPS. Duplex works too
Very nice printer ( good price on amazon )


After going into Airboot menu, I hidden some partition from ArcaOS. Then, I saw that win7 was unable to boot natively from its disk (win7 is on a different disk M.2 PCIe AHCI). I then removed hidden flags from under Airboot and could boot from bios into the win7 disk again....
But, what a surprise ! very sad surprise.
I have a 6TB GPT disk exclusively used under windows 7 with all my backups and all my archives and very important documents. This disk had only one 6TB partition but after changes I did under Airboot, this disk is now scrashed and I found on it 2 partitions ! One of 2TB and the rest as unassigned !  Airboot scrashed my GTP disk and all my datas ... it is very very dangerous and why did Airboot change my disk partitioning ?
How to recovery my disk and my datas ?  ( user data integrity problems )

Setup & Installation / Realtek ALC892
« on: June 22, 2017, 01:04:14 am »
Hi all !

My MSI Z97S SLI Krait Edition mainboard equiped with an I7 5775C CPU which has an onboard audio Realtek ALC892 chipset. 
( note: all included HW - all USB ports, sata, network.. as well integrated video chipset works except the audio which provides no sound ! )   

ArcaOS detected it and installed uniaudio but at reboot, audio didn't work !
Any idea to resolve this issue ?

( screen copy about audio drivers seen under HW manager )

Applications / AVxCAT 1.4 alpha
« on: December 30, 2015, 01:21:48 pm »
Are any tester available to give a try to AVxCAT V1.4.0 ALPHA  ( compatible with ffmpeg 2.1.5 ) ?
If you are interested, please send me an email from my home site to get this alpha build or get it from here:
Alpha build means that you may find problems
2 known problems
- OGV and MPEG2 not working ( about OGV, it looks to be ffmpeg but more investigation is needed )

ffmpeg to try with it   

It has:
- latest found bugs under v1.3.x resolved
- display ffmpeg version under 'help'
- Added debug log on ffmpeg
  (warning, use it only in case conversion fails at start or the amount of messages may crash avxcat)
   to enable it: - enable axtra log, go under parameters ans mark ffmpeg debug log. At end of session, parameter is removed
- video conversion uses multi threads which speed up the conversion ( you can specify auto or the number of threads (CPU core)
  This option is enabled with ffmpeg 2.1.5 and disable under older ffmpeg ...
  note: very fast on MP4

After test, please, provide feedback using the email link on my web site and specify what was well tested or buggy.
- audio conversion ( codec tried )
- audio to video conversion ( codec tried )
- multiple audio track with join
- video conversion
- video and mapping !
- create presentation out of videos


Setup & Installation / JSON an d OS/2
« on: November 02, 2015, 02:55:35 am »
Hi dears !

I've got clamav 0.98.6-6 and tried to install it without yum/rpm and then, provide a WPI package for the GUI
Now, I have a problem about JSON. I installed the json.dll but at clamd run, I get a message about json could not be run under os/2 session ?

I must have missed something.
Any idea ?
