If simply deleting it and resetting the printer does not work within about half
a minute or so, select open, 'view job content'. Close the system editor and the
job will disappear!
1) copy disk 1 (or loaddskf disk1_cd.dsk) and edit config.sys to
remove the ,LW from the DISKCACHE line (works around FAT cache bug).
REM out any unneeded drivers. If you're running a 2940, you may
need to patch the boot disk with the latest driver.
2) Boot to a command prompt
3) change into \os2image\disk_2 on the cd and run fdisk. Partition as
appropriate. Reboot to command prompt
4) format the partition with the /L (long) option. HPFS may be formatted
by adding the /fs:hpfs parameter. Format is found in \os2image\disk_3
5) Run through the advanced install as normal. Install basic Warp 4 with
VGA, WinOS/2 and IBM Works. Add support for Citizen printer.
6) If it works, install Peer services.
7) Install TCP/IP from \cid\img\tcpapps\install.exe on the CD. This allows
you to deselect components you do not require (such as 3270/5250
8) Install multimedia and the AWE64 driver
9) Install voicetype
10) Netscape followed by netscape plugins
11) EMX, Emtex, Xitami, VAC++, XFree86
12) Numerous VAC++ fixpacks.. Make sure it hasn't fouled up your
13) Java 1.1.4 and patches.
14) Fixpack 6
15) S3 Virge driver
17) ext2fs (I'm generally wary about any beta releases of features as
fundamental as a file system)
You can combine many of the above steps; I've listed a very cautious approach.
Some people have had issues with Java 1.1.4 and FP6 - I've been OK.
If you don't need Java at this point, I'd wait. Java 1.1.4 weighs in at close
to 30MB for the basic install.. Then there are the patches (15-16 MB total probably)
and of course any serious Java coder will want Swing (JFC) 7MB or so.
I don't know if your problem started with FP6, but from the newsgroup discussions,
IBM changed a default in the AIC7870 drivers in FP6. Has to do with the type of
translation table used by the card for your SCSI drives. In the Adaptec setup is
a parameter for translation table, and reads thus:
Extended BIOS translation is used only with MS-DOS 5.0 or above. You do not need
to enable this option if you are using another operating system such as NetWare,
OS/2, Windows NT or UNIX.
So all of us who had this off (on writes a 7 meg translation table on the drive
for DOS when on, off writes a 1 meg translation table) had the exact problems you
My solution was to go to the Adaptec site (http://milpitas.adaptec.com)
and get a newer driver than you found:
D:\STORAGE\78xu2os2.exe -a-- 178016 98/04/01 20:20
This allows for the correct usage of the BIOS translation switch.
Click with the mouse on the file you want to delete from the list, then press
Ctrl+Backspace (the same key combination that deletes a line in the edit window).
This also works in the command window.
If you just want the ability to play the sounds but don't want the actual system
sounds, you can run \MMOS2\INSTALL\DINSTSND.CMD and reboot. This frees up some system
resources the the "Enable System Sounds" checkbox doesn't affect. I do
it to all my systems. The regular MM stuff works fine.
If you want them back just run \MMOS2\INSTALL\INSTSND.CMD and reboot.
Matrox video card, right? Switch to 16bpp and/or disable DIVE/EnDIVE. It's a
bug in the Matrox drivers.
I've seen this behavior with old 2x or slower CD drives and software burned CDs
(custom made) One reason could be the lack of multisession support on your CD Drive
or just incompatibility with the CD Burner format.
If possible, try swapping the CD from the Win95 machine into the OS/2 machine
and see if this works. You could also make a network connection to the Win95 CD.
For those of you needing to do peer networking in a heterogeneous environment,
you might want to take a look at http://www.flash.net/~roknrob/sea.htm
It has some good information. I got my Warp machine connected to the Linux machine
running Samba. Now I can finally edit files on the Linux machine with EPM. :-)
Reboot, then press Alt-F1 when the "boot blob appears". Select the
option to disable hardware detection. After the system has booted, go into the Hardware
Manager (OS/2 System->System Setup->Hardware Manager) Properties and disable
Those are Java applets, so you have to run them from the applet viewer. Right
click on the example1.html file and expand 'Open As' choose the Applet Viewer menu
One nifty little feature I finally discovered in MR2/ice is the little "f"
box on the bottom of the panel. It toggles the screen from the font chosen to the
alternate font chosen. I've chosen a fixed font as my alternate font, so one click
of the "f" lets me change how I look at it.
A copy of pinball and a bunch of ifs for os/2 can be found at: http://rheooptik.fmf.uni-freiburg.de/pub/os2/drivers/ifs/00-index.html
I believe that the AUTOCHECK list on your
IFS=HPFS.IFS .... /AUTOCHECK:CDEF
is only for HPFS drives. Makes sense since it is on the HPFS line.
For FAT drives the autocheck list is on the DISKCACHE statement
BTW, for those who run a FAT-free system REM out the DISKCACHE statement. You
don't need it and it eats up a lot of memory (up to 4Mb). If you have a FAT
partition for occasional use, change the default cache
to something like the statement in the previous paragraph. Only leave the
default setting alone if you use FAT extensively. And floppy disks don't count
in this context.
I have had success adjusting WINOS2 Volume by *manually* editing the SYSTEM.INI
file section for the Soundblaster card. Notice the *Volume=xx, xx lines and adjust
them up or down to taste.
The online help and information files appear to be indexed to speed up searches,
and if you search for an indexed word you will get a quick response. If the word
you use for the search is not in the index, the search program does not default
to searching the text of the document.
You can force a search of the document by using a wildcard in the search pattern.
This will take longer, but you have a much better chance of finding the information
The only way I found to fix this is to open Unimaint --- for some reason, Unimaint
forces the "cursor hide level" (as GT SysInfo calls it) to 0.
It's not supposed to be "right there in Winos2". It's supposed to be
in TCPIP\DOS\BIN and pointed at by the proper environmental variable set in AUTOEXEC.BAT.
And there must be one and only one copy of Winsock.dll. Full details on all of this
