Hardware / Re: eCS on Samsung Series 7 Slate
« on: 2012.09.26, 23:51:40 »
Hi Sigurd

It's so long since I joined the eCSTestTeam that I'm not sure how I did it... I think it was around the time that eCS1.2 was in beta.

I can only suggest that you contact Joachim joachim @ mensys.nl (remove spaces around the "@") and ask to be added to the eCSTestTeam mailing list. That way you can find out what is happening with various drivers under development.

Regards

Pete

Hi

If you were on the eCSTestTeam mailing list you would be aware that an updated Panorama is due sometime soon for testing. Roderick posted this today:-

[ eComStation Test Team ]

On both mailing lists there have been a lot of replies of people
wanting to test Panorama.

I already have 1 person that tested the new first build from David. It
does not address the performance issue's (yet).
David needs some more days to further work on the code of Panorama. It
does not make sense
to release the current version for testing. Somewhere next week we hope
to have a new version we people can test.

One thing you can do (you don't need to send us this data). Is download
this benchmark tool:
http://www.os2warp.org/SysBench/
And on the systems where Panorama is running run sysbench. Telling that
the video performance is not good
is one thing. But numbers are more precise!

You only have to run "Graphics" benchmark. The other options are not
needed.
Then when the new Panorama test version is released you can compare
numbers!

So somewhere next week we hope to have a new version that should
address some of the performance issue's.

Roderick


So, keep an eye out for the updated Panorama and, hopefully, it will be an improvement over the current version. I doubt it will come close to the speed of an accelerated driver though.

Utilities / Re: Burning CD/DVD on AHCI system?
« on: 2012.09.05, 14:13:52 »
HI

dvddao works with drive letters as an alternative to scsi ids. From the readme:-

2. Installation
_______________

DVDDAO may use several interfaces to work with RW device. It can work
either through aspinkk.sys (included in this package) or aspirout.sys 1.1b5
(or newer) from Paul Ratcliffe or via OS2CDROM driver with support of ExecCMD
feature.
When you specify standart scsi device descriptor [bus,]id[,lun] in command
line, DVDDAO will work with aspinkk.sys driver. If you want to use aspirout.sys,
use --aspidriver aspirou$ command line switch. When you specify the drive
letter in device descriptor (i.e. -d x, where x is your DVDRW letter),
DVDDAO will work via OS2CDROM driver. Each OS2CDROM driver hash its own bugs
and stupidities ;(, so this method may not work on your system or work with
errors.


The above implies that it should work with devices using a drive letter via os2cdrom.dmd and not need scsi ids.

However, I do not have a burner using AHCI so have not tried myself - Guess that makes you the "guinea pig"  :-)

Let us know how you get on.

Applications / Re: Latest Firefox?
« on: 2012.08.10, 17:17:26 »
Hi Melf

I don't use that extension myself so am wondering if it is simply a case of the extension needs updating to work with later Firefox builds/

Hi

Simply type about:pugins in the browser url bar.

You still *need* libc065 for odin 085.

Also when manually upgrading Odin you need to run \odin\system32\odininst.exe to complete the odin update.

Hi

You need libc065 installed to be able to use odin 0.8.5 ftp://ftp.netlabs.org/pub/gcc/libc-0_6_5-csd5.wpi

I suggest installing libc065 and see if that helps.

Programming / Re: AMOUSE - development, source code?

Hi Andi

I think the best person to ask is, probably, Roderick Klein of Mensys as the nbsoftware website http://www.nbsoftware.de/ seems to have vanished.

Hi Doug

When I reported problems with WPS Wizard the developer responded that his programming was fine therefore there must be something wrong with my system and he was unable to help.

It is possible that the developer was correct and there could have been something wrong with my system that caused no problems for any other software. However installing WPS Wizard to a new eCS installation (no migration) made no difference.

As the developer was not interested in resolving the issues I simply gave up with WPS Wizard and can only advise others to do the same.


Regards

Pete

Hi

I never had much success with WPSWizard and was not impressed with the lack of support to resolve the issues.

My advice would be to uninstall that software and see if the problems go away with the uninstall.

Hardware / Re: Printers
« on: 2012.07.19, 00:37:00 »
Hi

Most modern printers are not on the eCS supported printers list.

A possible solution is to use eCUPS - cups for eCS(OS/2) - see http://svn.netlabs.org/ecups/wiki/CupsPort

Hi Einar

Sounds like the file systems may not have been shutdown properly.

I suggest booting from a different volume or the Install CD - select Maintenance Console - and running chkdsk /f against all drives that had been in use.

Another possibility is that the os2.ini or os2sys.ini (or both) files have been "munged" by the failed shutdown - seen that a few times myself. You could check that while booted from a different volume or the Install CD although you may have to use attrib -r -s -h os2*.ini before checking file sizes to see if they look reasonable. If either of those files is "munged" you will need to replace them with the latest backup version you have. Obviously you will lose any Desktop changes made since the last backup.


Hope something above helps


Pete

Multimedia / Re: SNAP - Quiet mode?
« on: 2012.07.17, 21:20:30 »
Hi Martin

Simply install the original, full snap over the eCS version to resolve the issue http://hobbes.nmsu.edu/download/pub/os2/system/drivers/video/snap-os2-3.1.8.zip - I believe this comes with the free registration key but if it does not let me know and I'll email the key to you.

Hi Martin

Guess that is a difference between the eCS edition and the original product then as I'm running build 505 registered to me and do not see the snap boot message or splashscreen.

Pete
