Storage / Re: oddities with OS2AHCI version 2.04
« on: December 16, 2017, 11:21:48 pm »

  I have those port interrupt errors in OS2AHCI$ too, on all of my systems I've tried it on. At least here, it is always on the port where I have a DVD drive attached. I tried smartahci, then dumping OS2AHCI$ like you suggest, but I just see the interrupt errors along with the list of attached devices. You might try messing around with the switches on the driver. Here, I must use /!R or I can't boot. Maybe one of those will help. Also, I was able to eek out a little more physical memory (as seen at the top of a 'testlog generic') by lowering the video memory in BIOS. Maybe tweak on that (up or down) and see if there are any changes.

 8GB installed memory, the upper part of which is setup as a RAM disk used for the swapper and temp files. Running with an Intel i3-6100 (2 cores) H110 chipset. VIRTUALADDRESSLIMIT=2816. Maybe you should run a memory check?

Hi Dave,

  Thanks for the H264ify converter for SeaMonkey! Where did you get the XPI file? Was going to do the conversion myself, but couldn't locate where to download the file - the website wanted to install directly, but wouldn't allow doing that with SeaMonkey...

 Hi Pete,

  The only way I have to check for an advertisement is try the same video with a windows install (I use my laptop). Obviously I haven't seen them all, but the ones I get an ad in Windows don't play in OS/2. So far, all non-ad videos I've run across do play in OS/2. But H264ify seems to play them all (so far..) including ads.

 I'm also seeing strange behavior with SeaMonkey and YouTube. If I go to the main YouTube page ( everything looks OK, click on any video, the video page comes up with all comments and right side links like normal, but the video has a message: 'An error occurred. Please try again later.' and won't play. Then hit the 'reload' icon, get the video window, the YouTube search bar at the top and nothing else, but a 'waiting for...' message in the status bar. Now if I type 'Warpstock' in the YouTube search bar, I get a page with a bunch of videos from various Warpstocks and all of them play! So my guess is that videos with advertisements are somehow exposing a problem in SeaMonkey (since the Warpstock videos don't have any - somewhat unusual). Maybe can't handle some kind of network re-direction?

  Similar situation with Firefox, but after installing the H264ify add-on in Firefox none of these problems exist. When I get some time, I'll run Wireshark with and without H264ify and see if anything interesting crops up....

Hi Martin,

   I installed ArcaOS on a refurbished HP Probook 6570b I got back in May just for ArcaOS ($250US). It has a 3rd gen i5 processor, 8GB RAM, a 120GB SSD drive and came with Windows 10 installed. I set it up to have Win10 and ArcaOS boot using Airboot. The only issue installing was it did not detect my serial port, but easy to install manually. Everything that should work does (no WiFi, but installed card is one listed as supported by IWM if it is ever finished) except sound, which 'works' but is distorted and echos. PCI log attached.

 Thanks again, Paul! This one indeed does not have all the errors in the console. I spent some time with it and everything that should work seems to work just fine. I was a little disappointed to find I had no Bluetooth connection. I wonder what '' does? :-)

 In case someone reading wants to try it, here is what I did:

1) Open a command line window and type 'iptrace lan0' (or lan1 or lan2 depending on which interface you want to monitor)
2) Browse the network for a little while (don't leave iptrace running for too long or the log file could fill up your hard drive!)
3) close iptrace by hitting <enter>. There is now a file called 'iptrace.dmp' in the directory you ran iptrace from.
4) In the same directory type 'ipformat -x'. This formats the trace for wireshark and is a file named 'iptrace.enc'.
5) Open Wireshark and open the file 'iptrace.enc'

 Thanks Paul! I tried this build and the GUI starts fine, but the console fills up with 'Libc Panic: Child aborting fork' messages and the POPUPLOG is filled with this:

 Doesn't actually crash though.... maybe I should ignore these errors and just press on?....

 Thanks, Paul, it looks like a great start! I've used Wireshark in Windows and it is a very useful tool. I'll have to read up on how to analyze logs - never tried that before...

Setup & Installation / Re: ArcaOS: Impossible to install!
« on: June 01, 2017, 10:26:31 pm »
 Hi Remy,

  I have a motherboard with AHCI ports that will only boot with BASEDEV=OS2AHCI.ADD /!R. I originally just transferred my hard drive from the old system to the new so have never actually installed an OS on it, so I don't know how ArcaOS will install ( I plan on just updating all the components one at a time anyway - don't want to have to re-create my desktop). You might want to try adding /!R to the OS2AHCI.ADD line (if that is possible) and see what happens.
