OS/2 warp ecomstation

Recommended Posts

I just started playing with this stuff. Any interest in OS/2 warp ecomstation?

A demo CD of ecomstation, does not have full set of drivers, runs ok on some of my systems.

I also found os2 warp 4.5 something and ecomstation 2.0. and got them up but always drivers needed or

parts do not work. To work around that I took notes during install on what VGA or SOUND or LAN it had drivers for and then would find a Card to install in the system to make it work. Ecomstation does work on newer systems and can use firefox browsers but it has no one working on it anymore? Died about DEC 2013.

At some software get together this year someone bought rights to OS2 from IBM and said they would have something for newer systems about Sept 2016?

which may also be of interest to our 9x/Me friends:

 

Diskless Windows

The simplest setup of Win95 diskless workstations remote-booting from OS/2!

I am a hardware guy not software, please explain what the above means for 95 and 98? I read the files on how they would do that and? dont get it?

 

Next on the ecomstation 2.0 that comes with firefox 3 something I got 10esr working by a download and install

from a web site listed above. I am now trying the 17esr listed in a download but so far no good install.

 

HOBBES for the 17

warpzilla for the 10

Took the entire folder from OS/2 that had firefox 10 and put it on a win 98 system and tried firefox.

It said it needed KLIBC to run?

KLIBC is some kind of a linux thing?

So OS/2 uses the linux form of firefox?

The idea is to have a "Server" with OS/2 warp serving diskless station(s) the Win9x OS.

 

Basically, apart for the initial setup these PC's need not a local hard disk and will be network booted.

 

The parts that our Windows 9x/Me friends will likely find of bigger interest are parts 5 and 6, where (indirectly) the concept of a separate "miniwindows" or "nucleus" on a "virtual superfloppy" and "all the rest" on a "plain network drive"  is explained in detail.
