USB / usb and irq
« on: 2011.01.26, 21:34:40 »
Hi to all

Problem:  Lost USB mouse, lost ability to see usb scanner,usb printer.                                                   
both have worked on this machine in past.  (Can see usb mass storage devices)

On recent re install of ecm 20 ga, could not  get acpi to accept any
switch except /smp, computer seem to work ok.  rmview /irq reveled irq 10
was shared btwn sound (hda nvida) and ohci compliant host controller .
A couple of tries later, accepted,  /smp/apci, why??   sound went to irq 21
and works,  lost reference to irq 10 and ohci usb host controller .
normally rmview  /irq would report 2 ohci and 2 ehci controller, now
only 1 ohci and 2 ehci.
Any help, suggestions, ideas would be greatly appreciated

Best regards

Hi to all:

Recently, I received msg on boot that hard disk #xxxx was in danger of failure, happened to be

Multimedia / Fluidsynth

Setup & Installation / RC7 Silver
« on: 2009.09.10, 08:29:04 »
Downloaded Rc7 on 28 Aug, after two unsuccessful installs (because of operator errors) third try went very  well.  Install was with modern hardware in safe mode, acip wizard scaned the hardware and came up with the following suggested switches /smp /apic, which I put in and rebooted to a stable two processor configuration.  The only serious problem I have found is no sound.  On this computer, I had partial sound in rc6a very breifly using Paul Smedleys uniaud v 1.9.2. I have tried many of Paul's uniaud versions with no success.

I have found what appears to be an anomaly in irq assignment for sound system

Rc6a and rc7 in boot process reports hda nvidia,assigned irq 10
mixer detected--conexant cx20549 (venice)

rc6a rmview
irq level=10  pci pin=none  flg=shared hda nvidia

irq level=10  pci pin=B  flg=shared ehci complaint usb host controller

Rc7 rmview
irq level=21  pci pin=A  flg=shared hda nvidia
no other line for irq 21 being shared with ???

Other than the sound problem, I like rc7 very much and find it considerably more stable than rc6a overall

Any thoughts or suggestions would be most welcome and appreciated

ODIN / Odin and java5
« on: 2009.05.21, 21:12:53 »
Hi to all:
    I am trying to install java5 (jre-1_5_0_17-i586-p.exe and get the following error after dropping the .exe on odin pe."Installer:wrapper.create file failed with error206: file name is too long".  I have tried several different ways to shorten the file name with no success.   

    Downloaded odin-20050402=xp.wpi and installed ok, then upgraded to

   Using the same drag and drop on pe.exe of pgm (noteworthy, setup-nwc2_demo.exe). I get a successful install and launches ok, but has problems.

    Using same procedure on pgm (Ultraiso) I get a successful install and launches ok,but I don't have a small iso to try the demo out.

    Given the above exaamples, it seems like odin itself installed correctly.

    As always any thoughts and suggestion as to the jre problem will be greatly appreciated.

Multimedia / RC6a non working sound
« on: 2009.02.19, 05:34:49 »
Hi To All:

    I have been successful in getting a stable sys with RC6a, but without acpi. Have not suceeded in getting a stable sys that way,  and no sound. Am now working on sound problem.  I tried re installing base mmos2, still no sound and when rebooted got the following error msg.
sys1201 the device driver  D:\os2\ specified in the device statement on line 219 of config.sys file was not installed line 219 ignored  press enter to continue.

Second sys1201 msg  same except this one is D:\os2\mdos\vcom.sys  line 50.

searching thru config.sys (using two methods, direct counting lines and using enhanced E editor
by pillarsoft)

Line 219 actually is---- run= D:\os2\system\logdaem.exe
Line 50  actually is---- device=D:\tcpip\bin\vdosstcp.sys

The real  device = statments for \os2\ and \os2\mdos\vcom.sys had been previously
been remmed out.
Any ideas, suggestions on what is causing what appears to be an anomally in the config .sys file
will be reatly appreciated

Setup & Installation / rc6a
« on: 2009.01.09, 06:34:05 »
Hi to all:
    Here is a small success story on installing ecom 2.0 rc6a.  Divided hd into two
volume's,  vista and ECS.  ECS volume was formatted with JFS, seem to install ok with acpi, installer reported that my AMD cpu was supported.  Everything seemed ok but on reboot system      extremely slow trying to launch and eventually would not start.  Reinstalled without acpi and again installed without complaint, on reboot everything worked well.  Using the LVM,  installed os2 boot manager ok and added both ecs and vista to the bm.  On reboot with out install cd, ECS booted fine but vista would not, error msg returned,   \windows\system 32\winload.exe either missing or corrupt.  Ran vista recovery cd and re booted to ecs and same error occurred.
Question:  Any thoughts on getting around this vista problem?

Question: How to get back door access to ecs to try various acpi switches without having to reinstall ecs os
