Thanks Dave, I updated the page.

Now I have the doubt if I should call the page "Dell XPS 720" or "XPS 630i"

Hardware / Re: Lenovo T420 - disabling touchpad
« on: April 25, 2018, 03:06:14 am »

As far as I know there is no utility/driver that can help with that on OS/2 / ArcaOS. On Windows there is the utility on "Control Panel - Mouse" to enable/disable the Touchpad with its buttons (bottom) and to enable/disable the Trackpoint with its two buttons.  (Attached Picture)

Something that may complicate things for us is that I had noticed that Trackpoints/Touchpads in Thinkpads now came in three brands, Synapsis, ELAN and Alps. So I'm not sure if we can get a solution that can fit it all. The T420 seems to come with the Synaptics one according the support site.



A few more books had disappear. Disappear? How? IBM removed from the Redbooks site and I didn't have a backup of those books and I can not find it on the web anymore. (Not on the Wayback machine also)

Checking the EDM/2 the following OS/2 related RedBooks and links are no longer available:

VisualAge for Java Enterprise Version 2 Team Support - Sep 1998
I found a draft from March 1998, but I'm trying to find the one from Sep 1998.

2) SG24-5265-00
VisualAge for Java Enterprise Version 2: Data Access Beans - Servlets - CICS Connector

If you find other Redbook from the "IBM OS/2 Warp Development Related Redbooks" wiki page that does not have a PDF/Download/View link, please write me back.

Hi Dave

Thanks for updating the wiki page. Maybe what is missing right now is:

Audio: I'm guessing that you installed the UniAud driver on ArcaOS 5.0.2, right? Which Audio device is the one working 10DE:026C    or 10DE:0BEB ?

Wired Network: Can you let me know the driver you installed for it? the name xxxx.OS2

Model Number. Maybe it can be shown on the BIOS.

Video: Let's see if you can find the trick to make it widescreen.

USB: Is USB working fine? Is an USB mouse and keyboard working? Or does that error on the boot with the USB is also showing issues on your USB capabilities ?

I guess that if we solve these question the wiki page will be ready :)

Where would the service tag be?

I think it is on the back of the machine within the bar code sticker.  Here it is an Dell Article about it.

Thanks Dave.

This is what I got for the moment on the wiki:

It will be interesting to know your experience with the Audio and the Wired Ethernet Card.

General question: Are the Panorama Widescreen activators working with the latest version of Panorama on ArcaOS ? or are not necessary anymore? Too bad there is no extender for NVidia. There is also an NVidia DVI Scale filter but I'm not sure what is that for.

Hi Dave

I think it can also be interesting to document the Dell XPS 720 on the OS2World wiki.
Can you please share full model number, the PCI.EXE report or any other hardware information so I can include this machine on the wiki?

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 :)

Off Topic discussions / Fuchsia is not Linux

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! "
