General Discussion / Re: Yahoo Groups End of Life
« on: October 18, 2019, 09:13:25 am »
I've triggered the content download the day before yesterday. Still not finished.

Side note - I've no problem when yahoo vanish forever. These idiots don't let me log to my account in as long as I do not enter an extra code they send per email. Beside name and password. Again, when I need to see me groups I need to login with my 1) name 2) password 3) extra code sent by email every time I want to log in (once a day the last days although I've checked stay logged in). How stupid can some service be? Moreover, until I came to that point I had to play this silly google captcha crap for minutes until they believed me that I'm not a robot. Honestly I resign such crappy service in the future and wish the worst for yahoo.

Some of the groups I'm registered -

Most of them do not have a lot of traffic in the last years and I probably will not miss very much when they are gone. I think os2ddprog is the one with the most valuable content for me. But as I got all of the messages as email I've them locally back to the year 2000 ;-) Just checked some of them - still very interesting stuff there.

Setup & Installation / Re: How to convert a GPT disk with Win10 to MBR
« on: October 14, 2019, 09:26:17 am »
In DFSee there is a menu entry for changing GPT to MBR. Honestly I've not even read the documentation until now. So it's a bit to early to bother Jan with this. Have to check what Jan has written in his docs before.

Dough thanks for the hint to Acronis. I've read similar messages from you in the past but didn't remember were. Thanks again for answering here. I did have bad experience with backup and restore Win7 with DFsee so I wanted to do it different this time with W10. So I'll try 'your' Acronis way.

One question, currently there are three partitions on this 250GB SSD. One of them seems to be the recovery partition. I think I can safely delete this cause guess it would recreate a GPT system anyway which I don't like. Or would it be better to back up and restore this one too? Is it important for W10 to have the two other partitions in front of it's system partition or does it work without the recovery partition in between?

The say -
You can change a disk from a GPT to an MBR partition style as long as the disk is empty and contains no volumes.
I don't want to delete the W10 installation.

DFSee does have an option to convert GPT to MBR. But does the installed W10 still work afterwards?

Thanks for all the replies. I've to work it through.

I try different things in parallel - adding ArcaOS to the installed SSD while preserving the W10 installation. And preparing a spare SSD with OS/2 - ArcaOS only at the same time. This spare SSD is dedicated to a new server I build but I'm testing it in the T540p too.

Neil, I don't know which video card is installed. But it is equipped with a 3k display. I never ever will buy anything below 1920x1200. HD resolution only, no chance ;-) Usually I can't work with less then 3840x1200 but our multi monitor setups are very limited :-( No clue if I ever get this 2880x1620 resolution working with OS/2. But I got this T540p for 385€ including the docking station and a second power supply. So I can't resist buying it.

I don't want to loose the Win10 installation. How can I convert the disk to MBR so I can add some OS/2 partitions?

Setup & Installation / T540p - OS/2 is unable to operate your hard disk
« on: October 12, 2019, 06:16:22 pm »
Anyone successfully installed ArcaOS or OS/2 on a T540p?

Trying install ArcaOS from USB Stick leads to a reboot after selecting 'Booting with default values'.

When putting in another harddisk with preinstalled eCS and ArcaOS on different partitions I always get 'OS/2 in unable to operate your hard disk'. Any hints to get this Thinkpad running?

I've disabled Hyperthreading and USB3 in BIOS. I also enabled Legacy boot. What else?

Hardware / Re: SNAP and dual-head display setup recommendations...
« on: September 19, 2019, 06:05:44 pm »
My about 10 years old desktop with ATI X300 is still my main machine cause of it's my only computer which can run dual-head with OS/2. As this card does only have on DVI and one analog RGB connector one monitor has to live with the analog signal.

I forgot the paragraph in the SNAP readme which restricts dual-head with digital interface to ATI chips. So the Matrox G650 with two DVI outputs I bought some days ago will be useless I fear :-(

SNAP/Panorama development - AFAIK Panorama will never get multi-head support. It's hard enough to keep/make Panorama working on new systems it seems. OTOH SNAP seems to be a very very big challenge to understand, get it compiled, hard to debug (for todays standards), extend ... We would need more than the very few developers we have who can explore the details of this beast and go where No One Has Gone the last decade.

I can't even imagine why anybody is still using File and print Client.
Cause it simply works and it is a lot faster than any other solution when used with many files. That's the reason why I'm still running it beside samba and ftp.

Which compiler suite do you want to use? And from which system/GUI toolkit do you want to port? Old windows code or from latest VS framework?

For SNAP and SMP you need ArcaOS. ...
I'm think there is nothing in the ArcaOS SNAP build which improves SMP interoperability. Of course ArcaNoae makes a pretty good job in improving OS/2 to be usable on more modern systems. So if you've some spare money buy ArcaOS licenses ;-). But if the latest free SNAP 3.1.8 doesn't work don't expect miracles from the AN version.

IIRC Jans FreeDOS DFSee version has all these USB stuff integrated. Maybe you want to test his ready to go FreeDOS image.

Unauthorized - sounds like you're not authorized. Please don't ask why I'm authorized. I can't remember how I set it up anymore. Seems it was long ago. Is there nothing about in the AN wiki?

Multimedia / Re: Warp with 2 sound cards?
« on: June 06, 2019, 09:51:05 am »
A few years ago I asked Timur Tabi some questions regarding OS/2 and multimedia. Although he don't use OS/2 since a very long time he answered politely and in detail. Maybe he still answers specific questions if you ask directly. I think he's the most knowledgeable guy in this field.
