Applications / Re: Firefox 45.9.0 can no longer play Youtube movies ?

Hi Dave,

I will setup a new Ryzen computer later today (that is an one of my running units but with a new hard disk containing a bootable OS image), that way all the old cruft will be out of the way.

I your AMD optimised build still available and if so where do I find it?

Hi Dariusz,

As soon as I get the 'new' computer up and running (as above) I will start experimenting as per your suggestions, don't know when that will be as friends are going to take me out for my birthday, the big 80.

Hi Dave,

I isn't just one core at 100%, but 1 core for a few seconds then it switches to another core for a few seconds then another one.  It works through all 4 cores and the only way to kill it is the big red switch.

A new profile, without any addons, doesn't do anything to change the behaviour (the computer has been switched off more times in testing than it has since I built it :P normally up 24/7 since it also runs the FTP server).

I can't help wondering if the CPU has some effect on what is being seen here.  On my Ryzen based machines I have no problems with firefox 38.8.0 as supplied with ArcaOS while firefox 45.9.0 does not appear to like the Ryzen processor and is very finicky on operation (it starts sometimes and generally runs each processor at 100% switching between processors at random).

The only drawback with firefox 38.8.0 is that some websites are using items it knows nothing about supposedly for security reasons.

Hi roberto,

Sorry about possibly leading you down the wrong track but that was the only way I could get my DCP-9020cdw (colour laser / scanner) and HL-3170cdw (colour laser) to work over the network.  I could never get CUPS to work so I looked for an alternative and it works.  I even use the Brother Linux drivers on my two Linux computers rather than CUPS.

Any particular reason for using CUPS? 

I ask because all my Brother printers that have a PPD have been added to the PSPRINT driver and are available using SLPR over the network.

Hardware / Re: SNAP and dual-head display setup recommendations...

Now if SNAP would work with the Radeon Vega 8 Graphics of the Ryzen processor I could get back to what I used to have on my old computer, a couple of 28 inch 1920x1200 monitors.

SNAP is not happy with the Vega graphics and Panorama works as long as I don't want to do anything with extensive graphics activity.

Setup & Installation / Re: Warp 3 with WINOS2
« on: September 10, 2019, 07:00:04 pm »
Hi Mathias,

Depending on what you are trying to do you either need a copy of OS/2 Warp 3 blue spine which includes winos2 in the install, or if you need networking then you need to install OS/2 Warp 3 Connect, it has winos2 and all the networking that was available at the time (at least my CD does).

I can post the various readme files from the CD if that would help.

Which NIC driver are you using on both machines?

I assume the ArcaOS one is using the MMRE driver and I have found it problematic in reporting  throughput - I had to stop using IPSPEED.exe because it never reported any speed or throughput, I had no problems while I was using NVETH driver by Nickk.

Hi Dave,

Am I reading that right by using xx2lx.exe I can convert win 95/98 DLLs to ones that work with Odin or am I missing something?

Applications / Re: XWP v1.0.13 Beta 1
« on: August 31, 2019, 05:35:00 pm »
I have a strange problem. 

Since it is impossible to install ArcaOS on a Ryzen based motherboard unless you clone the drive I setup an ASUS board with an AMD A-SERIES A8-9600 processor that does allow the install from Aos 5.0.4.  Now thinking I would update the clone image I updated XWP v1.0.12 to this beta wondering if the 'no switch off' problem had been fixed, unfortunately it has not and this is the problem since all the Ryzen 3 2200G based units with the same motherboard do switch off without problems.

From what I can see there shouldn't be that much difference between the A8-9600 and the Ryzen 3 2200G that would cause the problem.

Any ideas or observations will be appreciated.

BTW everything with this XWP beta works except as above.

Sorry, I learned a long time ago that you can't just add/use windows DLLs to Odin - they don't work.  The OS/2 DLLs are LX while the Win DLLs are ME.

Hi Martin,

A couple of screen shots if IrfanView running under my old original Odin v.088 install.

ISTR FF 38 works better with older hardware,

Just an addition.  It runs very well on my AMD Ryzen based computers both with ArcOS and Zorin Linux.

Some of the stupidity I'm seeing with the browsers is very reminiscent of Microsoft's war against Netscape but now it looks like Google Chrome has some 'oddities' that web designers are using to the detriment of other browsers.

Edit: I should have added that I also use FF 60.8.0 esr on the Linux computers as well.

The IT industry are gearing up for the subscription model for all of Microsoft's cloud offerings.  There will not be any more 'buy once and use forever' Office offerings - if it is in the cloud you pay per month.

For those living and working in Europe there is also the GDPR which governs where data can be stored - if MS moves it out of Europe then the owner of the data can be held responsible if the data is leaked.

Last thing, who trusts a company that regularly uses its operating system to scan your computer and send data about what you are working on, your banking details and other sensitive information back to home office the be 'evaluated'?

I don't remember ever seeing any type of manual for Oden but it is very simple to make a program object (see attachment) and if the program doesn't work it will generally tell you what is missing.

BTW, the full 'Parameters' line in the example is:   "d:\odin\program files\irfanview\i_view32.exe"  Note the quote marks - they are necessary.
