Applications / No eComStation/ArcaOs Networking on T420 with VirtualBox
« on: February 12, 2018, 04:15:00 am »
I've got a T420 running Win 7. Using VBox 5.2.6. My issue is that I can not get an DHCP IP Address to either an eComStation or ArcaOS VMs. I've tried all the various combinations of Adapter (Bridged, NAT, NAT Network, etc.) and none seem to work.

When I try and bind to either my Wireless (Centrino N-6205) or Ethernet (Intel 82579LM Gigabit) it makes no difference. The IP Address never gets served.

Now the same VMs work just fine on my desktop VM System, with an RealTek PCI Gigabit Adapter.

My WinXp and W2K VMs work fine and get unique IP Addresses.

Any ideas of what could be wrong here?

Setup & Installation / Update ISO Image with new Drivers

I've found that I need the latest AHCI Driver to get my disks recognized. Whats the best way to update the ISO image to include the updated OS2AHCI.ADD. I'd also like to have the add the latest ACPI too.


Setup & Installation / Installation Volume Manager Location
« on: January 23, 2018, 08:10:46 pm »
Just installed on a new system. More to report on those issues later. But I've found that the Installation Volume Manager is not in the System Setup Folder anymore. After searching around, I found it in the Install/Remove Folder.

Personally I don't think this is correct. I expected to find it in the System Setup as before. Before I open a ticket, can anyone else report on the location they find it?


Applications / CUPS - Support Printer List
« on: December 19, 2017, 06:13:01 pm »
My venerable HP2550 is starting to die, so I've got to find a new Color Laser Printer for use. Is there a good list of successfully tested color laser printers that can work with ArcaOS and eCS V2.x?

My basic needs are:

  • Parallel Port or Network interface
  • Multiple paper trays (letter/legal)
  • At least 100 page letter tray
  • Manual paper feed capability

USB or Wireless only connectivity is NOT an option.

I've done some searching, but its really hard to find verified information on working printers, so I'd appreciate any and all info.

**updated to include additional requirement**

Marketplace / c Set++ V2.0 Looking for a new home
« on: January 13, 2017, 12:59:40 am »

I've got a complete copy (still in original box) of C Set++ V2.0 available for anyone who wants to give it a new home. I'll even pay the shipping (domestic USA only). If there are no takers its unfortunately going to end up in the recycling bin as we are packing for a move and its time to get rid of some really old stuff.
