Hi Sharjeel

Please point me to the Lenovo's driver. I want to compared it to the ones on hobbes. I had upload some as zip files, without the self extract function. I want to see if I already have it on hobbes.
Maybe is this one.

Hi Doug

Sorry to annoy you with this.

I have three machines. All three use the same motherboard (Asus M5A78L-M) and the same processor (AMD FX4350).

Is it the M5A78L-M PLUS/USB3, the M5A78L-M/USB3 or the M5A78L-M LX ??

I know this may be "crazy talk" but it would also be great that eventually some developer of the OS/2 community would talk at the Qt World Summit, talking about Qt development on the OS/2 / ArcaOS platform. I'm not sure how open is this event about someone requesting to talk or making 25 minutes  "un-conferences".

This year seems to be on Berlin and Tokyo on november.

Great News !!!

It is always good to make friends with other communities, and Rexx is a natural friend of us  ;D
Some names like Mark Hessling and  Rony G. Flatscher sounds familiar.... and of course Mike Cowlishaw.

I would be great if the event can be recorded for future references and to preserve the knowledge. Cheers to the Rexx guys !!!!

Hi Dariusz.

I don't have a dual-head system, so I can note tell the "how the dual-head display change my life" experience  ;D
But I created I little wiki page for the ATI X850 Pro, please let me know if there is any tricks to set it up, config.sys, or anything else you want to include on the wiki page.

Hi Joop.

Any pictures or documentation that you may have related to the OS/2 and Mainframe topic is welcome, and I will include it on the wiki.

Ohh,  the  Data General One laptop used to came with a "Pierre Cardin" bag according to Wikipedia  ;D ;D ;D

Hi Pete

I have a copy of OSO001.MSG right here.


Hardware / OS/2 and the Mainframe
« on: September 11, 2019, 10:53:58 pm »

This is a topic that just today crossed my mind by checking twitter.

Event that I tried to document my findings on the Wiki, (Category:Mainframe), I still have some doubts and I lack information.

My interest is only from the OS/2 perspective on how it is connected to the mainframe, which drivers OS/2 requires and which software it runs.

I have these questions:
1) Which are the "Support Element" software versions that runs on OS/2 ?
2) Some Mainframes came with a Thinkpad with OS/2 preloaded, how it is connected physically to the mainframe? Serial/Parallel/PCMCIA/Network?
3) Some other mainframes came with a PC with OS/2 (I think it is called HMC -  Hardware Management Console ). how it is connected physically to the mainframe?
4) I don't think I can find a list of which mainframe models used to be compatible with OS/2's HMC, but I will like to build one.  I only have the Multiprise 3000 and the IBM z890 on my list, if someone remember some other model that has OS/2's HMC or know where to get this information, please let me know.

I noticed that there may be some bldlevel clone.
Code: [Select]
[C:\os2]bldlevel bldlevel.exe
Build Level Display Facility Version 6.12.675 Sep 25 2001
(C) Copyright IBM Corporation 1993-2001
Signature:       @#IBM:14.082#@ Build level display facility
Vendor:          IBM
Revision:        14.82
File Version:    14.82
Description:     Build level display facility

On OSFree some time ago for my experiments I grabbed their bldlevel.exe.

Code: [Select]
Build Level Display Facility Version 1.1
(C) Copyright 2003-2004 by Yuri Prokushev

     Use the BLDLEVEL command to search for a version string in a file.

     SYNTAX:  bldlevel [drive:][path]filename
         or   bldlevel /?
         or   bldlevel

       drive           Specifies a drive letter for the path or filename,
                       for example: C:
       path            Specifies a path,
                       for example: \os2\dll\
       filename        Specifies the name for the file.

     /?              Displays this information.
     no parameter    Displays this information.

I guess there is an open source bldlevel clone by Yuri Prokushev, but I don't know exactly where is the source code in the OSfree repo.

I have some questions related to the bldlevel command.

1) Do you know some other tools that allows me to see/extract the bldlevel information from files beside bldlevel.exe?

2) Is there any way to include the bldlevel information to an executable that does not have it? Can it only be done while compiling the binary? or can it be applied to binary where you don't have the source code.

Welcome to the forum Daniel G.

I don't have the straight answer to it, but we had tried to consolidate the development resources on the EDM/2 wiki:

There are some OS/2 development related books here:

I just want to confirm this, 128px is the bigger icon we can have on the OS/2 desktop with a PNG icon (with Dynamic icon), right?

Hi David

I'm looking for a "pointers folder" and an "animated pointers folder" (it does not have to be animated, it just has to represent the animated pointers) based on the ArcaOS default blue folder. Do you have something about this?
