Hi OS4User

Can it be possible for the author to explain a little bit what was patched on this DIVE.DLL ? like which functions of the OS4 kernel is now using to increase the video speed?


Hi Nick. Welcome back to the OS/2 community.

I know it is not directly related to your issue, but it may be interesting if you can get a copy of "OS/2 Warp 4.52" which is almost the same Warp 4 with modern fixpacks (with the exception of Voice Type).  It may be easier with that version the issues with the outdated drivers.

It is not clear yet what Google is going to do with this OS.

I thought they planned on using it for Android, at least if they can get it working good enough.

There was the rumor that they planned to integrated ChromeOS and Android in a single microkernel, but it was never confirmed.... or deny :)

OSNews just published that Google's Fuchsia OS now have a more organized documentation:

It is kind of interesting to see some OS that is not based in Linux and it that is not a Monolithic kernel.

For people like to have more deep knowledge of an OS, it may be interesting to read more about Zircon, the kernel of this OS. It is open source under the BSD 3 clause, MIT, Apache 2.0 licenses. It is not clear yet what Google is going to do with this OS.

Ohh!! The site is back online:


Hi Tuure

Thanks for sharing your review and opinions.

As I suggestion I found it good to try to share any specific problem (with details) of the laptop that you tested with ArcaOS and share details like the PCI.exe and hardware reports on a forum thread. There are people on these forums with a lot of experience of the tricks to make some hardware work. Wifi support is definitively or low point for laptops, wifi it is too important and ArcaOS does not have updated drivers yet. But on some other things like video resolution there are some tricks depending on the harware. 



This is just a reply to remind the reference related to these comments: "New web browser for OS/2 update 4, with roadmap! "


Hardware / Re: Time for a OS/2 box

wow.. I didn't expected this topic will be subject to such a fast reality check !!

The idea of having some brand/model to have somekind of "ArcaOS Certification" is also good. It is not like a company has to invest on an exclusive hardware for ArcaOS, it is more to test a machine where all the components works with ArcaOS and let the people know that XYZ model is running fine.

Bogdan,  saying that just because something haven't happened on the last 11 years it won't today is a good joke for me. Is this some example of an "Appeal to probability" fallacy ?

Hi Leonardo.

I think it is not a bad idea. On these days  it seems very easy to create customized machines from china factories. If someone is interested on creating/selling this will have to think more about the strategy and what kind of box they want to offer. I personally don't see it as Bebox, but a more smaller scale (non big ATX case). But that is something that it will never get a consensus on the community :)  I notice that a people like to have ArcaOS on laptops. It will be interesting to know more about the personal preference of OS/2 users to know if they use more ArcaOS on Desktops or Laptops.

Here are the three installers I had created. Those had been built with rpmbuild-bot this time.

Digi, please tell us more about what you are doing.

I tried to collect some more content of OS/2, eCS and ArcaOS released.
Here it is the main category of all those:

For the moment I think it will interesting for this to collect and link the announcement letter for each release.

I'm trying to find the announcement letter for eCs 1.0 to link it there. Also, I'm trying to find the "Software Choice" announcement with MCP/ACP 1 and 2 from IBM.


Hardware / SATA Controller Mode: Intel RST Premiun
« on: March 29, 2018, 03:28:01 pm »

I found this on the a Lenovo Yoga 910 machine. (Check attachment)

I can not install ArcaOS to try it out, but I guess that the workarround will be to put it on AHCI mode.

Does anybody has any experience with this "Intel RST Premiun" does it work on ArcaOS ? On Windows 10 it requires special drivers to be loaded on the installer, so I'm guessing it will not work for us.

Hi David.

I haven't used that application. I used DFSee to format some FAT32 flash drives.

Maybe some new chapter can be included on this article:

Any other ways to format USB drives are also welcome :)
