I'm curious to know who still implements systems running OS/2 still to this day. Basicly I would like to get an idea how big the OS/2 user base is out there in the real world.

Older OSs are are a hobby of mine and a still have one system, a 486DX2/66 with 16megs of ram, running v3 Warp. It gets used from time to time for IRCing. I do have quite good collection of OS/2 versions from 1.3EE up to Warp 4 Advanced Server.

My prefered OS these days for day to day usage is Linux. It took a while but I am quite comfortable using it now. All of my hardware runs on it, including my wife wireless printer.

Setup & Installation / Re: Installing eCS 2.1 on ibm x41, unicode error

And sorry, i wont spend another 120 dollars on the os without a guarantee to boot. I mean Arca. You know, freaking 2014 crisis, dollar prices has risen by 2 times, and now 120 dollars are simply 240, which is too costly for the os with a risk of not installing too.
But if someone could provide me a free DEMO of Arca to test of installing abillity, i would be very thankfull. I simply did not find it.

Does it stop in fase 1 of the installation, i.e. before booting from hard disk?

Dont even know, i would guess not, simply because in normal mode it just freeze on the logo on the first second, in debug mode it writes down the mentioned above message in ~10 seconds, without saying anything about hddboot.
And what do you mean "different keycaps"? How would i fix this?
Thanks in advance.

I tried to install eCS 2.1 on my thinkpad X220 notebook a while back.  It too would freeze at the eCS logo.  Tried several times, but always the same result.  Then tried ArcaOS 5.02 on same computer and installation was no problem.  At the time, I was wanting to boot to eCS or ArcaOS.

It should not make any difference that the laptop is Russian. All that means is different key caps) The hardware is the same. Does it stop in fase 1 of the installation, i.e. before booting from hard disk?

i changed nothing from the default - as you see in a error message it is 850 and 437
When i try to change this values before starting an installation, the debug mode shows me a message, saying that the codepage numbers are set up wrong. My installation is in another room now, i cannot say exact error text,  but if you need it, i would get it

The exact name of the error is

Unicode - unable to load codepage 850
Error = 14

And

Unicode - unable to load codepage 437
Error = 14

What language and code page choices did you make at the start of the installer?

what do you mean saying "another kernel"? OS/2 kernel are not compatible with Ecs, AFAIK, and ECS are not available to download, do i need to buy it? If so, where is guarantee that it will work?

Dariusz,

I was trapping in OS2KRNL.

I submitted a bug report and got a response and a fix from ArcaNoae on Sat.

The short version is

"The trap is occurring when PM is attempting to load LEDPANEL.FON which is
installed by PMDCALC.WPI.  The font file itself is OK, but it exposes a defect
in _ldrGetMte..."

So far the fix has been working.
