It would be nice if there was a list of the URLs where all these parts are kept - including the updates.

Martin, you mention ACPI as being almost the prime mover for eCS but I have to ask what good does it do on a desktop computer or a server? 

We are running 2, 4, and 6 core processor desktops and servers using the old os2apic.psd seeing all cores and not seeing any problems while a friend was having problems with his new 4 core desktop and the eCS acpi psd.  When we changed it to the OS/2 psd the problems went away.

Yes, I can see where it might help with a laptop, assuming the suspend/ resume works reliably but I don't see it as the game changing application so mant people make it out to be.

Thanks Paul.  I will give that a try on Monday when I go into work although I seem to remember trying something like that before and getting no response.

Is there any thing special I should be looking for?  Since all the printers are HP CLG 3500 I have your hplip installed with CUPS on my test machine.  Now all I have to do is work out what to do.

Applications / Re: Which are your Favorite OS2-eCS Apps?
« on: December 27, 2013, 11:54:15 pm »
Since you asked for 'apps' - something we don't have on OS/2 (such things appear to be part of the smartphone culture and are usually meaningless bits of code that take up the limited storage space on said phones) - I have listed utilities, that get installed on every instance of OS/2 that I build, and programs that everyone here use.

Utilities:
World Clock
IRQ Monitor
CPU
IP Speed
Iniedit

Programs:
Describe
File Fredom
CoolReader
DFSee
Lucide

Neil, if you can get SAMBA and/or CUPS to print over the network to a NAS based print server that requires a username and password to log in I would love to know the necessary incantations and what must be sacrificed to do so.

Adam,

The IRQ does not have to be shareable but the drivers have to be able to share an IRQ for anything to work correctly.

Hardware / Re: Can eCS run on a Chromebook?
« on: December 08, 2013, 07:37:59 pm »
In theory it should BUT you should read http://johnlewis.ie/pre-built-coreboot-firmware-for-chromebooks/ first to get some idea about what is going on and how to change things.

Martin, there are a couple of things to consider.

1)  Can it run a standard linux distro?
2)  Are there drivers available for the accessories?

There has been several comments about running linux on the Acer models in the Register so point 1 is covered.  Point 2 is going to be the problem, specifically the wireless card, we don't have a very good record with that.

jdeb, there have been several picture horror stories shown on the Register in the past (I don't have a link, sorry) that would turn any self respecting service engineer off lunch.

The worst one we have seen was an IBM tower server that hadn't been touched in years.  It was kept under a bench at the back of the restaurant veg preparation area.  The bottom of the case was almost rusted through, the hard disks couldn't be removed because of rust and other gunge, the motherboard had been wet - there was a tide mark on it - and non of the fans turned.  The owner said that it was running slow - we wrote it off after cloning the hard disks.

Applications / Re: eCS 2.1 VM on VMWare ESXi
« on: November 27, 2013, 08:11:58 pm »
Hi Martin,

Just a question.  What version of ESXi did you use and what server?

I tried to install WSeB on a quite old version on an HP DL385 server with rather indifferent results.
