Applications / Windows 95 in DOSBox/2
« on: October 20, 2020, 10:15:17 am »
Hi all, I hope we're doing well today  :)

Recently I've been trying to get Windows 95 running under DOSBox/2 upon seeing that it's been done before, if the screenshots in the eCSoft2 page are correct. I was hoping to find out if anyone here has actually managed it before and if so, any comments about how they got it up and running. I've only gotten as far as mounting the image and booting it with a generic "Error Loading Operating System" so far.

Cheers  ;D

Ibrahim

Once you get fluidsynth give KO Myung-Hun's KSoftSeq a try - it adds software MIDI playback from the WPS using soundfonts and works pretty well! Only editing is not supported (yet).

Just a heads up: KSoftSeq appears to be able to cause the corruption of some DLLs under \MMOS2\DLL and possibly files in \MMOS2\. What fixed it is restoring MMOS2 DLLs from the AOS install media, I'd work out the specific incriminating ones but I went for the blanket approach due to lacking the time to look into it.


It seems like a promising bit of software but perhaps it needs a bit more work done on the end of stability. I will sit this one out until then.

It seems like a similar deal with Australia: https://search.ipaustralia.gov.au/trademarks/search/quick/result?q=OS%2F2#_649577
. As a matter of fact, the trademark for OS/2 Warp hasn't been renewed since 2004.

If we register the OS/2 and OS/2 Warp trademarks, maybe we can make and sell our own T-shirts  ;D

A lot of people on Redbubble have been selling stuff with the OS/2 logo all over it, IBM hasn't really clapped down on those sellers so I doubt they would do a whole lot if someone where to start making T-shirts elsewhere.

Hi Jim
Arca OS (as you call it, Arca Noae) is not a Linux distribution but for the sake simplicity a heavily updated/modernized Warp 4.52. As for daily use, once you've configured your environment to your preference and gotten over the slight learning curve - it's quite a breeze for the most part.

I'd have to say the biggest shortcoming is the lack of an up-to-date web browser (We're currently stuck on Firefox 45.9.0) but there is a new Chromium based browser by BitWiseWorks which might be ready in the near future.

From personal experience, if you want the easiest user experience as a daily driver without too many hiccups, it's seriously worth looking into using Arca OS rather than using OS/2 Warp.

From what I've read, ACPI.PSD 3.23.01 should work with OS4 but before I make the effort of actually trying to retrieve a copy of it.

Yes, as far as I know, 3.23.01 is the latest ACPI.PSD which work with OS/4. It is very likely that you will get the battery widget and ACPI shutdown (I have neither notebook, nor a 3.23.01 to check this).

Duly noted, I currently plan on seeing how I do with ACPI4.BPD but if it ends up being more trouble than it's worth I'll need to hunt down 3.23.01.

I got around to giving it a shot (Many thanks to Lars Erdmann for sending me a copy!), it behaves like it's successfully installed but doesn't actually work.
The battery widget icon doesn't show the E4 error code, but doesn't give any data on the battery's remaining power and states that it failed to load if you double-click on it.
When shutting down, it stalls on a black screen rather than automatically turn off once the shutdown process is complete.

I've been using OS/4 for the sake of being able to use Virtualbox + getting a bit more overall out of my T450S. I've absolutely loved how much more useful it's made my environment but my current grievance is the lack of a mostly functional ACPI driver (battery widget, ACPI shutdown, etc).

From what I've read, ACPI.PSD 3.23.01 should work with OS4 but before I make the effort of actually trying to retrieve a copy of it, I was hoping to see if anyone has any input on how well it performs and if I'd be running into any issues due to it being nearly 4 years out.

Congratulations if anyone here won the item! I had my back turned to my computer on the last minute to tweak with something on my workbench and before I knew it I missed my chance to bid  ;D

Hi Rick

Try the .wpi found in this page, it's resolved all my issues with WINOS/2 and DOS on my T450S and other Thinkpads so far.

https://mantis.arcanoae.com/view.php?id=1193

If I'm not mistaken, there's also a commonly used config.sys entry that's helped for others, I can't exactly remember what it is however.

I have prepared Yoga12-20200422.zip containing two rexx scripts for you to try out:

1. Run ofinger.cmd in a command window to obtain and show raw finger events. Touch the screen with your finger to see if that works.

2. Run ostylus.cmd in a command window to obtain and show raw stylus events. Touch the screen with your stylus to see if that works.

Thank you for the cmd files

Running ofinger.cmd resulted in the following output:
Code: [Select]
Set Configuration Failed!
The output of ostylus.cmd was:
Code: [Select]
Set protocol failed!

Unfortunately I wasn't able to get any further than this despite following Lars' advice on installing his driver kit and doing my best to make sure config.sys was up to date. I'm currently backing up my system and once that is complete I may do a fresh reinstall and try following the steps on a clean slate - I'm sincerely hoping that may yield better results than what we've been facing so far.

I have also once again attached a copy of my config file for anyone who is interested.

The program is retrying because usbecd.sys reports an i/o error. Please report which USB driver set you are using. Try and use the Lars Erdmann USB driver set.

I am currently using the latest Lars Erdmann driver set (10.234) however seeing this error is still occurring makes me doubt that I have installed it correctly. My procedure was to uninstall all Arca Noae USB drivers using the Warpin installer, then to copy in the files from the Erdmann driver set.

With hindsight, I'm pretty sure this was quite incorrect and I would greatly appreciate having the method of installing these drivers explained to me.

Nice. However, I really would like you to attach UVCVIEW.RAW created from the procedure outlined above (using uvcview without parameter) for me to inspect.

I apologize for not attaching this beforehand, I've uploaded it with this post. From inspecting the file myself I see it is putting out a picture, the UVCVIEW program itself just doesn't display it.

Strange. Seems to me that in config.sys the $FINGER$ device driver statement is missing or still not correct. Please check again.


I had REM'd the line referring to $FINGER$ before I ran YOGA12.EXE /v. With that corrected the output opens with this:

Code: [Select]
started.
 opening finger
 opening stylus
 opening tablet
 finger configuration

And then loops on this:
Code: [Select]
stylus configuration
 stylus configuration
[0000001D]

Hi Ibrahim.

Is the TouchScreen and Pen now working? Can you please share the config.sys so I can update the wiki page?

Regards

Hi Martin. Sorry but neither are still working at this point... I'll update my previous post to clarify that too

Rem out the "RUN=C:\OS2\BOOT\YOGA12.EXE" line in config.sys and reboot. In a command window use "C:\OS2\BOOT\YOGA12.EXE /v" to get debug ouput on stdout. Try and use your pen to see if it is working. Post your results.

The results are as follows:
Code: [Select]
opening finger
[00000003]
stopped.

Still no functionality I'm afraid.

Perhaps the mjpg decoding in uvcview.exe is not good enough. Click on "Testshot" to capture raw input data. Captured input data is written to the UVCVIEW.RAW file for later inspection. This could be of help in situations where the WebCam Viewer is working but the displayed picture stays black. Post your results. Try uvcview /u to watch yuyv video.
yuyv appears to fix the camera issue entirely, I'm happy to say the camera is now working perfectly. It's a shame I didn't try the /u flag beforehand as it's clearly there in the documentation
