Networking / Re: e1000e driver - test updates
« on: January 24, 2014, 04:30:50 am »
Doug,

  Usually there are lights on the ethernet plug that indicate the speed the NIC detects it can connect to the hub/switch/router it is attached to. Is the indicated speed changing from time to time? Maybe the NIC is detecting its connection differently each time...

Doug,

  After reading your post, I decided to check the speed of my setup. My SAMBA server has an Intel NIC running the 3.12 driver, and my client has a Realtek NIC running the 3.12 driver and connecting to SAMBA shares using IBM LAN logon. The two are connected thru a Gigabit switch. The share shows up as drive 'N:' on the client. From the client, if I move a folder with ~6GB of data either way (to or from the server) using the WPS by <shift>-drag and drop, I easily get over 30000 KB/s speeds (sometimes spiking to 42000). However, unexpectedly if I use FM/2 to do it, I only get at most 15000KB/s. What do you get for speed readings if you use the WPS to just perform a move from one machine to the other?

Paul,

  I am running the 3.12 versions of both the Intel and Realtek drivers with no problems... the Intel on my file server and the Realtek on my internet machine. Thanks for updating them! I'll post if any problem comes up, but they seem to perform as well as the original versions (I've copied a couple hundred GB of data back and forth with no issues).

Programming / Re: Where do I find hd4disk.add, acpi4.sys ?
« on: January 15, 2014, 12:43:08 am »
 Lars,

  hd4disk.add is in the QS_LDR package in the 'ramdisk' directory. I don't know about acpi4.sys... was wondering about that myself...

Setup & Installation / Re: ecs2.2 beta refresh
« on: December 24, 2013, 05:09:51 pm »
 Finally got to try this and was able to quickly install on 3 different machines with full functionality: 1 laptop and 2 desktops of various age. I agree with Sigurd's list of Pros and Cons. The one con I would add is no multiple sound streams. Overall it is a good version of eCS and well worth trying out. Thanks Roderick and everyone at Mensys ... and Merry Christmas!

Setup & Installation / Re: eCS demo CD beta 5
« on: December 08, 2013, 07:17:14 pm »
 Just tried this demo...

  On my desktop it works booting with defaults... all hardware is detected properly (including sound). The screen is properly detected (1680x1050) and USB works fine. I can browse the internet. The AHCI driver is loaded, but for some reason, none of my hard drives can be read, but maybe that is by design?

   On my laptop (Gateway 7405GX), I can never get the desktop to appear - it is always a blank screen using either Panorama (which I could never get to work with anyway) or SNAP (which does work when booted from hard disk - Radeon Mobility 9600). I tried every setting on the 'boot with own values' screens, but nothing ever works. Also, during boot, the NIC is detected (VIA Rhine II) but improperly setup - there is an error: 'IRQ not properly set'. This is known to happen with the SMP kernel if a parameter in protocol.ini is not properly set for high IRQ's (which I suspect is not being done because if I choose 'legacy hardware' during setup, this error does not appear). Also, my WiFi (Broadcom b/g) is not detected, even though there is a GENMAC driver for it (it IS detected when installing eCS 2.1). It seems it is not available in the list of NICs in the 'boot with own values' page....

Sigurd,

  Make sure you have XWorkplace, not eWorkplace installed. I think the split folder checkbox is only available in XWorkplace....

Sigurd,

  Here are a couple things you could try:

-> disable Split view for the whole WPS

  Go to 'Local System'-> 'System Setup' -> 'XWorkplace Setup' -> Features' -> 'Folder Features' and un-check 'Folder Split Views'

-> getting back the Drive Letters in Folders object

  Not sure about this one... I think it is a residue of the PNG Desktop not properly de-installed. You could try:

 Go to 'Local System' -> 'System Setup' -> 'Appearance' -> 'Icon Themes' and apply the 'IBM Merlin' theme.

-> changing system wide the folders view from "Standard" to something else

Go to 'Local System' -> 'System Setup' -> 'Workplace Shell' -> 'Folder Views' and choose the view you like under 'Default Folder View'.

Hope this helps!

Regards,

Dave McKenna

 Has anyone tried Lars' new USB drivers (USBHCD196)? I get freezing in a few seconds with that driver when using weblook/webview. Going back to 195 all is well. Anyone else see that?

Wim!

  Webview/Weblook works great here (Logitech C250)... even better than the apps that come with the driver. I can only use the 2 lowest res driver apps with my camera without freezing, but with weblook/webview I get full resolution and no freezing. What a blast...great job!

Alex... just add /S to the USBECD.SYS line. That turns off the beep, which indicates it is connecting to the camera.

 Got my Logitech C250 today and tried it out. I have the same result as Yuri reported: only 160x120 and 176X144 work. All other resolutions freeze in a second or two. I did get a Trap000d in USBEHCD a couple times as well when closing one of the working resolutions (wrote it down if it might be useful). I tried different /S:x settings on the BASEDEV=USBEHCD.SYS, but nothing helped (some hurt).

Wow! Thanks Wim and Sigurd for putting this together... I just ordered a Logitech C250 from Amazon ($19US) to try this out. It would be interesting to know how you set this up to stream video (if you do).

Pete,

  If you want, I could e-mail you a zip file containing all the extra DLLs needed to run AOO that I am using (it's 11MB)...

Pete,

  I have OO3 installed and working fine (as good as it can). I am able to run AOO4 on this system, so I don't think having OO3 installed is an issue. Have you tried starting swriter.exe in a command window? Maybe you will get a message that gives a clue.

  I used YUM to install the requirements, maybe there is a discrepancy there? What zip package did you use for the required DLLs? I could look at that and compare to what is on my system...
