I have it in the hope they will come up with a working USB 3.0 and 3.1 driver because I only have one computer that has native USB 2 ports and real USB 2 PCIe 1 addin cards are getting rather expensive now.

Hi Dave,

Regarding the USB problems you mentioned we had a client that was worried about that so we made a test unit using a Raspberri Pi board, several high capacity zena diodes, a couple of replaceable fuses and a USB socket.  Don't know if it worked for his company but it did work when we tested it.

Hi Lars,

You are correct in assuming I am using your drivers.  They are from the time when I was trying to get some of the spare buttons working.

Hi Digi,

That could be due to the fact this board has a massive amount of USB 3 and 3.1 ports attached to both the processor and a dedicated  USB 3 chip.

To be able to use any USB device requires a real (Via) USB 2 addin card.  The keyboard is highlighted in the lower screen grab which also shows the trackball as Kensington Orbit Optical.

Hi Digi,

You might be interested in the results I get from my AMD Ryzen box.  Sorry it is split but I only have a 1920x1200 monitor.

Hi Per,

First you are going to need to install a VNC server and a FTP server on the remote computer and have them run at startup.  You will then need a VNC client and an FTP client on your computer.

VNC server/client as well as a FTP server are available on hobbes for an FTP client I use jFTP.

Once those programs are setup and running all you need to know is the IP address of the remote (I think you can set that to a fixed IP via the RT-AC1750 but you need to check that in the manual).

Depending on how you connect to the RT-AC1750 you may need to set a pass through to the remote computer.  If you are connecting via a WAN IP address you should have a VPN box at each end for security, if on the other hand you are linked via the RT-AC1750 wireless there should not be any problems.

General Discussion / Re: Can ArcaOS replace my current OS?
« on: February 14, 2020, 03:44:37 pm »
I have been using OS/2 exclusively since OS/2 v 2.1 came out and am now using ArcaOS on a couple of AMD Ryzen based boards without many problems, the main one being, as Remy said, the lack of USB 3 drivers but I get round that with a real USB 2 addin card.  The other problem is that I can't run VirtualBox on those machines and therefore have to revert to an older OS/2 based machine if I want to test something on windows for a friend.

I also have Zorin Linux running on another Ryzen machine to allow me to use Calibre and Sigil for producing e-books although I use CoolReader on OS/2/ArcaOS for proof reading.

Hi Martin,

What do you think about my idea of an historical section on hobbes as the repository for such items?  That way it would make the older items easier to find.

I was thinking of such things as CD drives that are no longer made and when their drive belts break and stop working because there are no replacement parts.

I am all for trying to restore antique systems but as an engineer I find it sad when some things are no longer repairable and must be scrapped.  Maybe there needs to be an historical section on hobbes for the software for such items.

Hi Martin,

Just an observation but is it wise to post drivers for equipment that is no longer manufactured and, I suspect, no longer working?

Did you check that ndfs32.ifs is still in the 'programs\NDFS\ directory?  If not it should be and you need to find it and put it back there.

As an aside, I am very careful with using rpm/yum because it can mess up things. I learned that way back when I was using SUSE Linux and it was the reason I moved over to Linux mint and its 'deb' packages.

SYS0002: The system cannot find the file specified.

EXPLANATION: The file named in the command does not exist in the
current directory or search path specified or the file name was
entered incorrectly.

ACTION: Retry the command using the correct file name.

Attached is a copy of rsync-manual.pdf that I got when I setup the backups to my nas boxes.

Hi Pete,

I know what it can be like from the computers that friends bring in because they aren't working very well, I got one from a shop that had a layer if dist and lint over an inch thick and they wondered why it was running hot.

For me the heat pipes with the very large radiator and fairly slow large fan works best countering the hairs that my rather large Newfoundland  dog tends to leave all over the house, slow moving fans tend to not pull the hairs in, thank goodness and filter cleaning is about once a month.

I don't think there is one solution that fits all and we must find that which fits the circumstances - the computers out in the engineering are a once a week cleaning job as we found when they started having problems. Such is life.

I never saw the point with water cooling especially since the cases I use have removable filters over the air inlets. 

I do use some very large fans on the processors (4inch and 6 inch) but they are connected to multiple heat pipe units that have large radiators.  Works well with the two machines that are on 24/7/365.

hobbes/incoming opens here in France but there is no information as to what the file might be about so most things being uploaded at the moment are a complete mystery as to what they are.
