Setup & Installation / Re: Trap 0008 installing ArcaOS 504
« on: January 04, 2020, 05:17:04 pm »
Irrelevant, but yes, I've been using OS/2 long enough to know some of the "standard secrets".

Hyperthreading is off, and ALT F4 immediately results in:
The system detected an internal processing error at
location ##0158:a278 - 000e:a278.
60004, 6009

The BIOS is set to "compatible", however there could of course be something I've overlooked.

Tried to install again in order to get the "" just to see if that file could give an idea of what's going wrong.
Don't know why but this time the installation finished phase 1 and 2 and I got the trap 0008 on the third reboot. No "" was produced so I've opened a ticket at Arca which includes the "".

Before opening a ticket I'd like to know if anyone knows what could cause trap 0008. First phase installs ok on this
ThinkStation 520, after the reboot some drivers are being loaded and all of sudden it stops and produces the attached trap screen.

According to a NVMe driver is "planned".
However, I suspect it will take a long time before that driver will be available so if anyone is up to the task !'d be happy to support a bounty.

Thank you, Roberto.
A different approach which I'll look into for some other DBE stuff as well.

Yes, the file can be parsed afterwards and pdftotxt.exe could be used. I do have another program using this approach for some other pdf files.

However, still I'd like to find out how to "automate" this task with DBE/PMPDF since it works fine with another program.

If the name is not given when the report is printed to PMPDF it will always be yyyymmddhhmmss-InvoiceReport.pdf and this file name would have to renamed to 12345.pdf. Remember I use PMPDF's options set to "automatically create pdf" so in this case there is no way to see from the file name that it actually is invoice no. 12345.
Using PMPDF to automatically create pdf's from another application I have results in files named with this format;
yyyymmddhhmmss-Invoice_12345_Account_67890.pdf, so in this case renaming is an easy task.
However, I don't have the sources so I cannot see how it is taking the invoice number and account number from the record and uses them as parts of the file name.

Programming / DBE/PmPDF report titles
« on: September 20, 2019, 04:31:35 pm »
When printing a report in DBExpert to PMPDF, and PMPDF is set to create pdf's automatically, it creates a file like this;
20190920160910-InvoiceReport.PDF where InvoiceReport is the title of the report in DBE.

If the invoice number in this case is 12345, is there a method to automatically create a pdf named only 12345.pdf?
(Actually substitute the report title "InvoiceReport" with the invoice number from it's field in the report.)

Just to avoid confusion, like Dave Yeo mentioned, there are;


Believe Falkon (with 'k') is the one likely to be ported.

Thanks for the link. The models I've looked at have two USB 2.0 ports and up to 8 USB 3.0 ports.
Good to know about the Startek USB 2.0 PCIe, so with that I can even look at systems that only have USB 3.0.

Yes, I noticed that thread but was hoping that someone had done some tests recently  ::)
Driver for NVMe is on the Arca Noae "to do" list, however I can't wait for that one to be released.
Probably I'll just buy one model that also supports my old SATA SSD's. If Win10 comes preloaded on a NVMe
and Airboot can't boot it I will just transfer the Win10 installation to another SATA SSD.

On what kind of disk was Win7 installed?

Planning to buy a new ThinkCentre or ThinkStation which comes with Win pre-installed on a M.2 SATA or NVMe.
Will add an extra SATA SSD and connect it to one of the motherboard's SATA connectors and install Airboot and ArcaOS
on this one.
Don't know what kind of BIOS these systems use, but hopefully it can be set to "legacy".

If so, will Airboot be able to boot Win from the M.2 or NVMe?

Setup & Installation / Re: JFS chkdsk problem

The partition was on a non-removable drive, internal SSD, and it's icon was identical to the other partitions on the drive.

BTW, when I first tried to manually rename the files/folders, that were copied from a backup to the newly created JFS-partition, to their original long names it did not work. After reformatting to HPFS all seems to work fine.
Thanks for the link to filesys3.wpi, I have nothing to test it on now, so I don't know if it would have worked on the partition that didn't "accept" manual editing.

Would like to go back to JFS since it's a bit faster than HPFS, but without knowing what caused the problems in the first place I'm not sure what to do. Suspect a hardware failure so perhaps just buy a new SSD drive asap, anyone knows if there is one brand that is known to be more reliable than others?
