OS/2 and UEFI

2019-11-09 01:05:34 -- Eugene Gorbunoff [os2.guru]

Modern OS/2 distribution ArcaOS adds support for booting via UEFI

Let's look at this video: Booting ArcaOS on UEFI hardware (demonstration) In May 2019 there was a message: Arca Noae progress report: ArcaOS on UEFI-only hardware

Arca Noae has posted a new item, 'Arca Noae progress report: ArcaOS on UEFI-only hardware'

Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) is gradually replacing the traditional system BIOS. The vast majority of PCs on the market are now based on UEFI technology, and a number of these include what is called a Compatibility Support Module (CSM). This CSM "layer" replaces the traditional BIOS and provides backward-compatibility support for booting operating systems [...]

Where to search for ArcaOS updates?

2019-05-04 14:36:52 -- eCo Software [os2.guru]

We are accumulating all information about OS update at this page: os2.guru/update

Here is the instruction how to update Firefox 38 Firefox 45.


ArcaOS - includes modern Firefox

2019-04-29 12:45:47 -- Eugene Gorbunoff [os2.guru]

One of the arguments why you should upgrade to ArcaOS, it contains firefox 38. and you can update it to firefox 45.

it's impossible start firefox 38 and 45 in previous versions of eCS, OS/2 Warp. (many people made efforts but failed because it's impossible select needed libraries).

The users ask about Firefox 38:

  • Firefox 38: after ArcaOS installation you can use youtube and play videos. In several minutes / hours it stops playing. How to use youtube with Firefox 38?
  • You can't print from Firefox. So you should generate pdf files (and print PDF from PDF viewer). Question: how to improve quality of the PDF files? increase dpi? by default you get 150 dpi and text documents have poor quality.
  • Firefox 38 crashes often. How to increase stability?

OS/2 + AVITO

2019-03-25 01:10:31 -- Eugene Gorbunoff [os2.guru]

How to enter into AVITO profile from OS/2? reCAPTCHA doesn't work with Firefox 38 so you can't login.

  • Main secret - reCAPTCHA is not used for some Android devices
  • change user agent to
    Mozilla/5.0 (Linux; Android 7.0) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/4.0 Focus/1.0 Chrome/59.0.3029.83 Mobile Safari/537.36
  • remove cookies related to AVITO
  • select Add item. so you can see simplified Login dialog. without reCAPTCHA
  • now you are logged to the site
  • change user agent to
    Mozilla/5.0 (OS/2; Warp 4.5; rv:45.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/45.0

Share your experience how to use other services and bank sites from OS/2.

Switch OS/2 to your national language

2019-02-08 13:20:47 -- Eugene Gorbunoff [eCo Software]

eCo Software released LIP package Basic, it translates objects on desktop to other languages.

Download: http://os2.guru/lip

Current version contains resources for: Czech / German / Spanish / Finnish / Italian / Japanese / Korean / Norwegian / Portuguese / Russian / Swedish.

Even if you run this basic switcher, many programs start talking your language because LIP package switches LANG variable. (applications which are using ECOLANGE library and other)

 

Development of LIP packages:

  • New languages: you can translate desktop object names to your language,
  • If you have translated a system utility or an application, we can distribute it with LIP package among other users talking your language.

The members of eCo Software are translating OS/2 system components and applications since 90-th. We are collaborating with european OS/2 translators.
