Setup & Installation / A question about OS/2 and eCS
« on: 2012.07.28, 00:05:21 »
I have a question that I can't find the answer to.

A friend was on holiday and called in to see me a couple of weeks ago and we got talking about computers.

I let him loose on my 4 core AMD box with its multi TB hard disks.  He was checking the size of the hard disks with FREEPM when he remarked that my version was smaller than his and so was my IP SPEED.
I found this rather strange because he had installed the utilities from the CD I had sent him.

A few days ago he sent me a screen grab taken with GOTCH176 - they are definitely larger.  I have taken the same grab from one of my computers and combined them with his in the attached picture.

The only difference between his system - a 2 core AMD on an Abit KN9 Ultra and mine is that he is running eCS and I am running OS/2.

Now the question:
What is causing his install of FREEPM to take up half of the width of his 19" monitor while mine doesn't?

The same goes for the discrepancy in IP SPEED.

I have looked through the INI files he sent and the same files on my machine and I can't find anything that can be causing this problem.  He says it also appears in some dialogue boxes as well.

While it doesn't stop him using it, he, like me, is now rather niggled by it and would like it fixed if possible.

Since I don't have eCS I'm putting this here in the hope that someone will recognise the problem and have an answer to it.

I've tried the latest Firefox and it works fine until I try to do anything with mouse button 2.  Then it goes poof and leaves the following in popuplog.

The only difference in the 50 odd I have is line 4.

One other thing, 50% of the time I have to kill firefox.exe even though the window has closed.

There . .. .

I(t would appear that Eugene is trying to mess up Lars Erdmann's trying to fix problems since Lars specifically asked that ALL bug reports be sent to  complete with the information he requests - set out in the readme.txt file.


Applications / Firefox-8.0b6.en-US.os2
« on: 2011.11.13, 11:12:06 »
I've tried the new beta and as just a browser it appears to work well, BUT if I try anything in the 'file' dropdown it just closes - no warning, therefore no printing of any sort, not even 'save page as'.  Yes I have followed the read me on printing.

Another thing, where is the 'view' > 'page source' now?


Networking / RTL8169SC
« on: 2011.10.07, 16:16:33 »
Does anyone know of an OS/2 driver for the RTL8169SC based 1GB network cards that actually runs the card in 1GB full duplex?

We have a client that is considering changing to OS/2 but wants to keep the hardware they have.  We have checked their systems and everything is compatible except the RTL8196SC based network cards which they want to keep.

The one thing that is not mentioned is that it requires a sys tray or it will not load. TIhe server and client programs don't appear to work without it either.


Hardware / OS/2 Notebook
« on: 2010.02.10, 02:12:18 »
I will soon have to replace my Acer Aspire 9300 notebook.

What I need to know is if there is a notebook with similar physical characteristics that will run OS/2.  By that I mean, the screen can be run at its native resolution, LAN works as does USB.

I must have a full keyboard i.e. it must have a dedicated numeric keypad.  Also it needs an ATI video, Nvida is a dead loss with wide screen notebooks.

Also I don't envisage paying an arm and a leg for it - about 600 euro max.

The question is - is there such an animal?

Utilities / Duplicate files
« on: 2010.01.29, 17:06:03 »
Does anyone have a good duplicate file finder and marker for deletion that they would recommend?   It must be capable of searching several disks and at least 100,000 files.

Networking / Connecting a Linux box to an OS/2 network
« on: 2009.06.27, 00:41:37 »
The question.  How do you get an OS/2 peer to peer network with file and print sharing to talk to a Linux machine - without messing up the network?

A simple request that I'm sure does not have a simple answer.

The network is a mixture of MCP and ACP boxes plus a windows XP notebook and they need to see the open SUSE v11.0 machine.  Most connections are cabled through 3 EUSSO 8 port switches and a Linksys WRT54GC Broadband Router that is the DHCP server.

The requirement that the existent network is not changed is vital because some of the machines are moved to other sites and must be able to connect to the OS/2 networks there.

Hardware / Fixing JFS problems
« on: 2009.04.17, 11:01:04 »
Does anyone know a reliable way of fixing problems with a JFS volume?

I have a disk, formatted JFS, that has developed a bad sector.  It will not mount and chkdsk /f aborts at the disk size stage.

If necessary I will just reformat and loose the few files since the last backup.

Even though I use only OS/2 I would hope there is something for recovering JFS volumes out there especially since there is the much touted bootable JFS for eCs.
