Where it should be:

Where it is:

The RSU stuff is still missing.

AMD K6-2 300 and hang

—–BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE—–
Hash: SHA1

Got a problem here I hope someone can help me with.  I have a Super
Micro P5MMS98 motherboard, AMI BIOS, Intel 430TX chipset, 64M RAM.  I am
currently using an AMD K6-200 CPU successfully with OS/2 Warp4,
Windoze95, PC DOS 7 and Red Hat Linux 5.1.

I recently attempted to install an AMD K6-2 300 CPU in this motherboard
(the K6-2 is the new CPU from AMD with the 3D-Now instruction set).  I
made the necessary changes to the clock multiplier and voltage settings
and powered up the machine.

PC DOS 7 booted up just fine (since it boots the fastest, I use that to
verify any changes I make to the machine) so I put everything back
together assuming all was well.  I then booted up Windoze95 and it came
up fine, and so did RedHat Linux.

However, when I attempted to boot OS/2 Warp4, it got as far as the
little white rectangle in the upper left hand corner, and hung.  I tried
powering off and rebooting thinking something might’ve not been reset
properly with the soft reboots, but the same thing happened.

I replaced the new CPU with the original CPU and all is fine again, but
I’m wondering what went wrong?  Why did OS/2 hang with the new CPU when
the other three operating systems booted up just fine?  Any ideas??  I’d
appreciate any help anyone can provide!

How would install Warp 4 in the year 2000?

It would seem that to install Warp after 2000 you would have to set the
BIOS date to somtime before 2000, install Warp, apply the y2k fixes and
then set the date correctly. This may sound dumb but is this what you’d
have to do?

Thanks
Jim

Port of unix mt for OS/2 ?

Anyone know if a post of the tape control utility "mt" has been
done for OS/2.  I have looked on Hobbes, but have not found
one to date.

I would like to be able to backup from my linux box to the tape
on my OS/2 machine.  I can run rsh commands, and was hoping
to get a port of mt for OS/2 to use the bru software from RH 5
to backup to the OS/2 box.

Thanks in advance

Glenn

I thought that GRADD solved my video problem, but…

I thought GRADD had finally solved my video problems, but alas NOT.
I installed the 0.77 GEN (SVGA) GRADD drivers as I have an STB Nitro 64 ISA
video card (2 MB).  I was excited that I FINALLY got greater than 256 colors,
bu unfortunately, I noticed that I am getting upside down video pieces
occuring both in Pmmail and Netscape 2.02.  To make matters worse, when I
open a WIN-OS/2 session it says ‘Loading…’ then TRAP 000E. :-((((
My system is a 75 Mhz 486 (ISA – no VLB), WARP 3.0 (Red Pack), and FP 26 and
an Arcus DB-770BA Monitor.
So far the only drivers that work are the OS/2 2.1 Accelerated Drivers (V1.20)
and these only operate in 256 color mode.  All the Cirrus drivers including
all from the IBM BBS never make it to the Desktop — total corruption.
The inverted corruption in the GRADD drivers is bad, but the Win-OS/2 Trap
is unacceptable.  Thanks for any help.

Help: Verifying DMI pool data

I am getting the message above and computer stops, no floppy or HDD
access. I have tried different BIOS settings, booted without HDD, FDD,
CD, External cache, internal cache. I feel there is not a simple
solution but hoping someone has had an experience with it.
I searched DejaNews for "won’t boot Verifying DMI data pool" and got 500
hits, although I didn’t sift through each one, it appears to be a
problem but effecting people in different ways.

As I said, I cannot access FDD or HDD. The board is FIC 503+ with MVP3
chipset, G100 8MB, Cyrix PR233 MX, 32MB SDRAM.
Any help is appreciated.

Booting: Why does it take so long?

One thing has puzzled me ever since the end of the days of pure DOS:
Why is it that booting-up takes such a long time to complete? In the
old days you pushed the button and 12 seconds later were ready and
roaring to go wherever. Now, whether you are using OS/2 or Winblows,
booting takes halfway from here and till eternity. During this time,
the poor machine gets worked through its paces, lights blipping
psychotically, while in a seeming frenzy of disk-activity.

I would simply like to know how many megabytes are moved around on the
harddisk during boot-up, and whether this is really necessary or just
a sign of poor system-design/programming.

If anybody has any insight into this matter, please shed some light on
it – it would sure be good to know what exactly the machine is on!
TIA,

Stefan W. Christensen
