When I start ClamAV GUI, a splash screen shows and then the program hibernates invisibly. Any idea how to troubleshoot?

Maybe it hidden to systray icon? Extended system tray widget is present?

If the kernel does not need to be updated and all problems can be solved through PSD, why the same IBM released the updated kernels, with each new fixpack and each new version of the OS? Moreover, remember amount of test kernels on testcase? Probably architectural problems can not be solved with the external driver.

Remember that Warp V4 and later w kernels didn't use a PSD.
UNI? Or SMP kernels?

Good question why IBM did not follow. I guess they broke their own concept.
The kernel should be as lean as possible.

We have monolitic kernel. :-( Many programming interfaces, extend API, and even the hardware support (HPET for example), unfortunately, can not be obtained through an external driver. Also legacy IBM kernels have many errors, and not optimized for modern hardware.

2) ACPI as such has no relation to it, yes. But a PSD is a good place to put additional platform functionality to leave the kernel unchanged.

xWorkplace v1.0.11 beta 3 is working fine here.

I'm trying to make xview the default view when I open some folders. I know it can be done with "Open as..." and pressing "Shift" to select the new default.

But I was wondering if there is different way to do the same but from the object properties. Does anybody know if there is other way to do the same?

Best way: Open standart XWorkplace object "Workplace Shell" Go to "Folder Views" tab, and set XView as default view of dirs.
See attached pic...

Another problem, I can not copy with drag & drop an icon from one object to another.
Strange. It works on my system.

WarpIN is very popular installer for warp-like OS-ses.

Many software developers distribute their products in WarpIN format. But many developers do not use all the features of the installer, as well as being make a errors in the descriptions of the packages. As an example I will give diff of wis script of the lSwitcher(v2.8.1) archive: See diff

Hardcoded paths(to \ECS\... of course), errors in "<PCK>"'s, don't use "<GROUP>" for localisations and what annoying me biggest ... XWorkplace X(e)Center plugin does not distribute as separate package. They offer to put it the hands  :-\ , as in the good old days, when the software was distributed in ZIP format.

No, it is not our method! ;) So, on court of the community proposed a project "WarpIN-Scripts-and-tools".
In this, active development package:

In plans:
  • WPI distribution of QS LDR(with backup feature of original IBM OS2LDR), and script for repack developer's zip distrib.
  • WPI distribution of OS/4 "Phoenix" kernels(with the function of automatic addition of the installed kernel to the boot menu and the ability to simultaneously install different versions of the kernels, and script for repack developer's zip of course).
  • Continue adding to the database corrected WIS scripts of popular products. If you have such products, you can send me their scripts by e-mail (oxyd76 (at) gmail (dot) com) (and a direct link to download wpi of course!) with Subject: WarpIN Or join me on the GitHub! WarpIN it's easy! ;-)

Unluckily larger drives are now exFAT, which can be another question, "will we ever get exFAT support?"
Valery Sedletski(Valerius on IRC) is writing Fat32 driver with more speed, format, chkdsk support, files up to 4GB and much more. In plans - universal fat driver (Fat/Fat32/ExFAT), and rewrite it to 32 bit(similar to new ramfs.ifs) after ArcaOS beta release.

Hi Vadim,

Does it produce a display similar to the IRQMon one as shown in the attachment?
Yes! And much more monitors -- CPU(with temp), network, memory, disk, processes

If you use OS/4 kernels, you may use SL(System Load by Digi).

Parsing - directory path (remove the last part in directory path ) ?

Or using a loop ?

Code: [Select]
| -- pex1.nrx                                                          |01
| --                                                                   |02
| list = 'MARTIN DAVID BOB PETER JEFF'                                 |03
| i = 0                                                                |04
| loop while list <> ''                                                |05
|   parse list item list                                               |06
|   i = i+1                                                            |07
|   say i.right(2,'0') item.left(10) list                              |08
| end                                                                  |09
| exit 0                                                               |10



I am start develop RxMacroLib framework. My example for MkDirBranch function:
Code: [Select]
/* Make Directory branch                        */
/*                                              */
/* Example:                                     */
/*     D:\test is empty                         */
/* result=MkDirBranch('D:\test\data\test\1')    */
/* (result = 0 if Okay)                         */
/*     D:\test\data\test\1 maked if all ok      */

Parse arg Path

RxM = RxMStemInit()
Interpret RxM

Chroot = Directory()
/* Add tailed directory separator if not set    */

If Right(Path, 1) \= RxM.DirSep Then
   Path = Path||RxM.DirSep

/* If FULL path or from root drive path is      */
/* not specified,  use current directory as     */
/* root for make branch                         */

Path.Drive = FileSpec('Drive', Path)
If Path.Drive = '' Then
   If Left(Path, 1) = RxM.DirSep Then
      Path.Drive = FileSpec('Drive', Chroot)
        Path.Drive = Chroot||RxM.DirSep
Path.Path = FileSpec('Path', Path)
Path = Path.Drive||Path.Path

/* Make Branch                                  */

CurDir = ''
Do While Path \= ''
   Parse Value Path with CurSubDir Value(RxM.DirSep) Path
   CurDir = CurDir||CurSubDir
   Call SysFileTree CurDir, 'IsExistDir', 'DO', '*****', '*****'
   If IsExistDir.0 = 0 Then
      Call SysMkDir CurDir
   CurDir = CurDir||RxM.DirSep
Return Result

This function parse absolute(z:\dir0\dir1\dir2\dir3\), "from root" on current disk(\dir0\dir\dir2\dir3) and relative(from current directory dir0\dir1\dir2\dir3) paths, and make directories if not exist. Also format of path string maybe with or without trailing slash.

PS: I am fix little error, and update message with latest GitHub code.

Hardware / Re: Which buy a new laptop? for 2016
« on: January 24, 2016, 04:57:42 am »

I just updated the OS2World Wiki with the information on this thread:

I also tried eComStation on a Thinkpad L420. Compatibility was good, it booted, worked, the strong issues were Wifi and Audio.
Here is what I wrote about it:

I thought that it will be good to also list the "HardwareID" and the driver that works on a table, so the content can also be found when someone looks for the hardwareID of a device and finds out that it works on some computer.

Please remember that everybody can access and edit the wiki (and is also welcome to help) with the same userid and password that is used on OS2world.

Some infos about x220i updated.

If it is the DOS Version:

I run DOS Games with DOSBOX; there you can specify (in the config.file) the size of the Fullscreen resolution.

My Sony Vaio Pro 13 does have native OS/2 1920X1080 resolution, but my DOSBOX fullscreen (and it is then the "full screen") does have only 800X600 Resolution or 1024X738, as needed.

So I can play i.e. "Cusader, no remorse", "Bioforge", "Gene Machine", "Noctropolis", "The riddle of Master LU", "The Dig"....

The Dig(and many many other cool DOS quests) works with ScummVM with better performance
