New Boot Manager with FP13?

OS/2 Warp Server for e-business comes with a new version of Boot
Manager which understands INT13 Extensions, and can therefore boot
from above the 1024 cylinder (8.4GB) barrier.  Since FP13 merges
WSeB code into Warp 4 I’m hoping it gives us a new fdisk which can
install the new Boot Manager.  Does anyone know if this is the
case?

Warp 4 upgrade

Last week at the swap meet, I purchased a copy of blue spine
Warp V 4 (with all of the parts) for $5.

I am currently running blue spine Warp V 3 with no fixpacks and it is
working fine.  I would like to upgrade, but the package I
bought is NOT an upgrade and I don’t want to start from scratch
with V 4.  

I thought I read here some time ago that one could fool the
sniffer and use the fullpack to upgrade an existing system.

If anyone knows how to do this, I will be externally
grateful.

OS/2 and LPD's 11 well known TCP/IP ports

We have a client using OS/2 printing many very short files.  LPD has
historically had a problem with exhausting these ports in this situation
which results in a mandatory 2 to 4 minute wait for the ports to become
available again.  Under NT there is a registry entry for instructing NT to
use port numbers greater the 1024.  There is an equivalent fix under OS/390
with PrintWay.  Does anyone know of a fix for OS/2 Version 3.0 and possibly
4.0?

FP13: Archiving, Backup, but NO Service

I downloaded the RSU archive files (*.zip, CSF 1.42) yesterday
(05.04.2000), extracted the CSF to a temporary directory and the RSU
archive files to the directory ‘os2serv’ within this directory and
started ‘os2serv.exe’. (This is the method I used for all previous FPs
successfully.)

Then I selected the one and only syslevel file listed, checked the
‘advanced’ box and clicked on the install button. (As I did for
previous FPs successfully.)

I left the settings for the archive and backup directories alone as
the paths shown are the one from previous FP installations and are
correct.

The CSF showed me a bunch of locked files and I did choose to continue
the installation process. (As I did for previous FPs successfully.)

The CSF started to do the archiving for a lot of files. (As it did for
previous FPs).

The CSF started to do the backup for a lot of files. (As it did for
previous FPs).

The CSF showed me the service bar for a tenth of a second and told me
that the service is complete now and I have to restart the system. (As
it never did before.)

I checked the system: All files except for syslevel.os2 are the old
ones. The list of files to replace at the next system start
(C:\OS2\INSTALL\IBMCSFLK.LST) is nearly empty and does not show one
single copy command. (As it never did before.)

Now my system is on FP12 level with a syslevel.os2 file of FP13. I
cannot believe that this should be the correct behavior. Has anyone
encountered the same problem and/or does anyone know how to overcome
this?

Greetings
Michael

os2 & adobe

We own several copies of warp4.0.  I’m looking around to find out if Adobe
or any other company ever made a product for OS2 like Adobe encoder for
Windows. I need to print graphic files from a custom app. that can be shared
across the
web/email. I know Adobe made the reader for OS2, but I need the whole
package or something similar.

I’m desperate…any help or pointers much appreciated! Thanks!

WR08423 Only used 4 disks

I just completed installing Fixpack WR08423 to upgrade my MPTS.  I have
6 disks, but it only asked for 4 of them.  What’s up with that?

IBM's ddpak has non-IBM systems

IBM’s ddpak site
(http://service.software.ibm.com/os2ddpak/html/index.htm) now lists
non-IBM system compatibility as well as motherboards.  Both are in the
System category down in the Device section.

Cooltax and Odin

So, I’m trying out the alpha 5 version of Odin, and trying to get Cooltax
<http://www.cooltax.com/> to run.  Now I know this is alpha, so I don’t
expect this to work, but it worth a try.

I run into trouble even before I get to using odin. I’m trying to unpack
the cool9910.exe file using stix.  But after getting part way through, I
get the following error:

. H:\COOLTAX\Group1\MODEMS.INI
Runtime error 2 at 000102F3 TID=1.

Anyone had any problems like this using stix?

install help

Hey, all. I suppose you’ve heard this all, but:
I have os/2 warp v3…Windows reports my HD as being 4.01G
(4,309,798,912b) (does this mean the 4.3G fix is applicable?) and i’ve
given OS/2 an 80M partition done by partition magic 4. install is fine,
until fdisk is needed. it says that the partition mapping on my drive is
incorrect, and it shows a 4096m partition and a 2600000 or so partition. i
try installing on the active partition, (just skipping fdisk altogether),
and yes of course, on second reboot os/2 doesn’t show up. on my 486 with a
400M hd install is painless and easy. what’s the up with my hd, do you
think?

gratuitous thanks to all!

Upgrading booting HPFS386 partition beyound 4GB

Hi Everyone,

I’ve been asked to upgrade an OS/2 system running Warp Server Advanced
running HPFS386.  I’m a little concerned because I’ve done some
searching through usenet and it seems that OS/2 can’t boot off of a
partition that’s greater than 4GB.  Is this true?

I was thinking of just using Partition Magic to copy the 386HPFS
partition into a new 8GB hard drive and then resize it to 8GB.  Is this
doable?

I was thinking of using BACKACC C: /S /V and then using RESTACC to
restore the ACLs.  I think I need to convert the HPFS386 to HPFS before
Parition Magic will be able to work on it.

Thanks.

Alex
