Hi Dave,

What you are doing with Firefox sounds to me like a step forward.  At least I won't have to be careful with the DLL stupidity that I have to step round at the moment where some of the programs I use don't work with the latest DLLs.

Do you think it is worth my trying the version you did for Dariusz on my Ryzen machines, or is it too optimised for what he has?

While I wonder where people are going to find much of the hardware required by those drivers - I threw out much of the old hardware years ago and quite frankly wouldn't want to go back to it.

I can also see what you are trying to do.  Maybe a better idea would be to zip up sets of drivers and include a text file saying what they are (example; all the SCSI drivers, all the CD drivers, all the video drivers etc.  That way they are there but don't crowd out new software.

Just my thoughts for what they are worth.

Just wondering if the 'fail over' server also failed.  I had a client with a complete Raid failure but they continued without problems by using the 'fail over' server, it allowed us to replace the failed Raid array from the daily backups and then top up from the running server.

While it can be devastating when something goes down it does help if you are prepared.

Like the others I do wish you well and hope everything be up and running soon.

Hi Kevin,

The attached screen grab is of my standard disk layout.  Like Dariusz it evolved from the days of Warp 3.  The 2GB boot partition is half empty space, the tools are literally that but do include the 'temp' dir and e-mail program with stored e-mails from 1999, the others should be self explanatory.  I expect your BBS would fit on D without problems.

Hi Martin,

What version of Tea are you using?  Here I have v36.0.2 and everything works without problems.

I assume that later versions follow the setup that the version I have - if so then you need to open the 'Tune' tab and select 'functions'.  There you fill in the information in the spell check section.

The thing I like about Gotcha is the fact its operating screen is small, unintrusive and can sit on the desktop just waiting to be used.  Use is simple, click on what you want, if a window then just click on the window, if a section start at bottom left of the area, click the mouse button then move the mouse pointer to cover the area, release the mouse button and click again - finished.

The attached is the Gotcha main window.

Thank you Gregg.

Hi Doug,
All of this works in windows, of course.

While I don't know about your older AMD based boards I can state that all my AMD Ryzen based units also work with Linux.

Far be it for me to try and second guess the people working on the USB v3.XX USBXHCD.SYS but my engineering experience points to a situation where a limited wider beta testing would be an advantage if only to see how it works on a wide range of newer boards i.e. those a year or less old.

Martin, all of this is dependant, if you are using modern equipment, on the availability of the USB 3.0 and 3.1 driver.  Without that it will be impossible to do a direct install so the only way is to clone the hard disk from a working unit and tweak the clone as necessary.

Reading the Config tool Database I see that
TRAP 000E - PAGE FAULT: The referenced page is not present in memory, or the procedure referencing the page does not have enough privilege to access the page. Contact software support.

Memory problems perhaps?

Yes, that is the one Martin.  Since most of the screen grabs I do are selected regions I see no real use for that message - the older versions never had it so why the change?

Has anyone found a way to disable the very annoying message that appears when one selects a screen region?

Setup & Installation / Re: Problem with Win 7 and ArcaOS 5.3 installation
« on: November 17, 2019, 06:57:55 pm »
Strange as it may seem I had no problem installing both win 7 and ArcOS on a 2 TB drive.  Yes, I did make the partitions with DFSee first which, for me, appears to be the main requirement.

The big problem I have is that AirBoot menu does not show up so I have to time when to select the win 7 partition to boot which means that I hardly ever boot win 7 now (no great loss).

Setup & Installation / Re: Trying to solve server crash

Have you tested the server power supply voltages - if they fluctuate more than a few % the PS could need replacing.

The other thing is to run the full memtest tests from a bootable CD because bad memory is the biggest cause of instability and crashes.

Hi Pete,

The following is from the Sysinfo/2 readme;

                         Alexey Smirnov SysInfo/2 - Beta 0.8.26

        SysInfo.exe  -  OS/2 PM System Information utility, a ground-up clone of
        the Symantec NU for Win 95/NT SysInfo concept.

        SysInfo/2 is a useful PM tool for any person who wants to know
        more about their machine and understand how OS/2 uses the
        hardware resources of their PC.  It is doesn't contain *any*
        Symantec code (except of some grabbed pictures ;-), In the future, I
        will replace these with my own)

        Because the original system information and analyse tools
        provided by IBM and other manufacturers are less informative, I
        wanted to fill this "outer space" by writing my own PM tool in
        accordance with a modern view on the requirements.

        SysInfo/2 was written using SpeedSoft Sibyl compiler
        (evaluation copy ;-)). To collect information about running
        processes and memory utilization IBM Theseus API was used.

        List of features:
         1st page - total information material:
                - CPU & FPU type and quantity,
                - BIOS information,
                - Memory amount and utilization,
                - System Bus information,
                - HDD information,
                - Floppy info,
                - Video subsystem info,
                - MMOS2 (Multimedia) info,
                - LPT and Com port info,
                - OS/2 version,
                - Fixpack level,
                - DOS, WinOS/2, Win32s support.

Since it is written in SpeedSoft Sibyl you might be able to find something that will do what you want.
