Re: r328: OS/2 Warp 3 format error; CD access crashes PCem

OK, so I installed Warp 3.0. http://i.imgur.com/WmrHQsZ.png http://i.imgur.com/Cao2eDn.png I'm using the Warp 3.0 Connect blue spine with the 'fixed' Disk1 , which I see is for this version, which is why it was bombing on a file copy with the other Warp 3.0 blue spine (no connect) CD.

Re: Networking discussion

ISO image mounted in Virtual CloneDrive. PCem still quits if I reboot with CD-ROM disabled so I don't think it's trying to read from CD at that point. Edit: You know, I'm done with OS/2 versions over 2.11 at this point. Moving on to less frustrating things. I got warp to (mostly) install using an A...

I've noticed something with the Phoenix 386 clone. The Phoenix 80386 ROM BIOS will max out at 64 MB (640 KB Base Memory, 64512 KB Extended). If I select RAM to allocate higher than 64 MB, the extended memory counter will wrap at 0 KB as it relies on a 16-bit unsigned integer to store the total amou...

Re: Networking discussion

Ok, I see that the probes will of course do stupid things, since they think the NE2000 is a sound card, or some other old sound card CD-ROM interface, so it sends bad data which causes a panic. So I 'fixed' all the panic path's in the NE2000 to log an event, and continue. It won't exit now (it never...

Thank you for telling me. I have to apologise that I gotten carried away on how to get OS/2 Warp 3/4 to work on PCem. I'm gonna have to go with neozeed and stick with OS/2 2.0, just to play safe.

look we don't need 30 threads, and you don't need to post it all over the place, try to keep this in one spot. First OS/2 warp is a total piece of shit. It has zero auto-detection for anything. As always the problem is that it's spamming port 0x300 and one of the drivers doesn't like what it see's. ...

the disk read/write corruption seems to be too severe to allow the installation to continue. Is anyone else getting this 'disk corruption' thing? I've never had this issue.
