Known issues

Known issues, how to overcome temporary problems.


  • If your computer is equipped with UEFI instead of BIOS, switch it to Compatible with BIOS mode. Reminder: eComStation should work with any UEFI PC.
  • Genmac installation fails, install Genmac manually (from eCo Market or ftp://ftp.netlabs.org/pub/genmac/)
  • Sunny icons are not activated. Install full shareware Sunny icons.
  • More troubles and solutions are collected in eComStation bug-tracker (ecomstation.com -> Log in -> Profile -> Bug tracker)
  • If you have problem of "RAM 512 Mb", install external video adapter to the computer


That the danis506.add IDE driver is not working on some old systems. It has received maintenance to fix some bugs that have been reported and that broke some stuff it seems. If you have not done so yet, please report a bug in the bug tracker. Also check the eComStation bugtracker if the defect you have is already open. Thats saves us some time!

In broad lines the following issue's have been found and are being worked on.

  • On some older systems the DANIS506.ADD driver does not see the CD ROM and/or HDD. Regression in the code needs to befixed.
  • Some systems the OS2AHCI driver does not show the hard disc or you get an LVM error. Both items are under research and if the people that reported the problem can follow the instructions we will be posting in the bugs over the next couple of days we should be able to fix these issue.
  • On some systems the USB driver don't work. eCS 2.2 ship with new USB host controller drivers and new mouse and keyboard drivers. Again over the next couple of days we will we will post information that we hope will follow to we can debug these issue's. Again remote stuff remotely is not easy but we will make it as easy as possible. One benefit compared to the IBM USB driver is that the new USB drivers contain tracing facilities Its of no use to release a new beta RIGHT now. But the problem with Genmac not installing correctly with the beta has been resolved and the fix in CVS. Also the some problems in the NAPS GUI (MPTS replacement) and the CUPS wizard are partly/are being worked on. So your bug reports are useful! But some bugs take more time to fix then others.

The problem with OS2AHCI and LVM not working is already being looked in. So please stay tuned to your mailbox for feedback from our techteam. And as always when possible provide \var\log\instlog.zip. That is a treasure room for us with information.
