Applications / Systemload and CPUTEMP - Question
« on: November 15, 2015, 03:23:55 pm »
Mentioned in another thread I tried to use the Programs CPUTEMP and Systemload. Both are working quite well  :)

But I do have one question:

Please take a look at Picture CPUTEMP1: the Program Sysload does not show the Temperature in the program, may the desktop Resolution (1920X1080 FullHD) be to high?

Thanks for hints - and for programming this!

Applications / IBM Server Guide Pictures for Martin
« on: October 19, 2015, 09:31:40 pm »
Hi Martin,

here some pictures for your gallery from a software I once used in 1998 and did just purchase a this shrink warpped version today.


I would like to discuss the problems (legal, drivers etc.) in case I would distribute (may be the wrong term for it) an Updated OS/2 Warp 4.52 DVD.

Please feel free to write every problem etc. that might occur in your opinion - I would really appreciate this!

What I consider to do is:

For users wich do have:

- a vaild license to use the MCP 2 (wich is by the way - as far as I know - included in eCS License)
- a valid license to use the ArcaNoae Drivers

I would offer for free an updated OS/2 Warp 4 DVD, including latest Drivers from Arca Noae, a lot of enhancements, the QSINIT Loader etc. In fact this is what I am trying to achive with my project I am writing about at only for myself so far. I do not want to make money with this, just to spread the idea and may be the DVD.


- this DVD does not include drivers or parts of ecomstation nor (ecosoftware) etc.
- this is just an idea I would like to discuss
- this idea is discussed with no other person so far

So I try to collect:

- with whom I would have to speak in Advance?
- wich files could I use for this, wich not (i.e. wich kernel)?
- what else?

In case the "Delivering of an DVD" is to complicated or impossible I consider to write a "Cookbook" how to achieve this. But this is very time consuming.

Thanks in Advance!

Events / Review: Warpstock EU 2015 - The Saturday

I attended Warpstock Europe 2015 on Saturday, here comes my short summary with some pictures.

Multimedia / Firefox 35 (Firefox Hello) - Videochat with OS/2 ?
« on: February 12, 2015, 01:54:23 pm »
Just would like to ask: If it would be possible to have Firefox 35 WITH Firefox Hello ported to OS/2 - would Videochat via Webcam be possible with it?

Wim is just working on the Webcam support for the Vaio Pro I have, and here is what it looks like running the Logitech Webcam with it  8)

Please keep in mind that my Screen Resolution here is 1920X1080, therefore the 640X400 window seems a bit small, but it is for me the perfect size (if you want to have it bigger, just decrease the screen resolution to i.e. 1024X736)

And the Webcam is running for half an hour without any freeze now  :D

Hardware / 20 Years OS/2 Warp - my new Video!
« on: January 18, 2015, 08:35:03 pm »

My Hardware experiments are shown as well as the first steps with the Touch Interface.

Have fun!

This might be interesting not only for Martin.

Applications / Can I make Programs use only one kernel on an SMP System?
« on: December 02, 2014, 08:13:36 pm »
I think I have read about this before, but can not find something..

Is it possible to "tell" applications to use just one core on a SMP System?

Here VPC for OS/2 is the "problem" - it runs fine when I add the Switch /MAXCPU=1 in config.sys but crashes when all 4 kernels run (as expected).

So - is there a way to configure something in/with Virtual PC to just let it use one core even if the Switch above is not in config.sys?

Thanks in Advance,

Events / OS/2 User Meeting Cologne 2014 - Forecast
« on: November 27, 2014, 08:42:42 am »

you can find some information about the upcoming OS/2 User meeting on Saturday in Cologne here:

The event will be held almost in German as there has been almost no response from possible visitors from outside Germany or German speaking countries. If on Saturday someone will proof us wrong he/she is warmly welcome and we will find a solution for this then  ;)

There will be no "Live Camera" or something like this, but

- we will publish summarys, pictures and videos about the event and what happend in German and English after the event did take place

Thomas and me are really looking forward on Saturday!

The new SDL 1.25 Version corrects an error in combination with the Panorama VESA Driver, that is bothering me for years now  ;)

New Version is availiable here:

Before the Maximum 64k for the Desktop was possible, in true colour SDL applications did Show a wrong colour sheme (everything blue).

This error is gone now.

Thanks to the developer and Porter  :)

SDL applications i.e.: ScummVM, DOSBOX

Setup & Installation / Help for QSINIT Ram Disk appreciated...
« on: November 11, 2014, 09:07:48 pm »

I do have the QSINIT 301 running with my sony Vaio Pro 13. As it is equipped with 8 GB RAM I would like to build an 4 GB RAM Disk with QSINIT.

The best would be, if this RAMDISK is automatically created during the boot process.

I read through the documentation and tried my best, without success.

- tried it with typing the command in the QSINIT Shell    ramdisk /q nohigh size=4096 R:   but that seemed to do nothing.
- as I tried to find ramdisk.exe inside the qsinitfiles and did have no success I downloaded the ramfs and added the ramfs.ifs to config.sys . But this changed nothing - as I expected because the config.sys is loaded after the QSINIT Loader startet...

Well, I know that Doug Bissett played around with this but was not able to find it in this forum.

Help is really appreciated!
