  1. Impressive benchmarks, very interesting, I haven't dealt with RamDisk or RamDriver so far and unfortunately I don't have a suitable test system yet. My systems have 2 or 4 GB Ram (RLoews Ram Patches), but not more. If I buy two 4 GB bars or four 2 GB bars, I could expand the memory to 8 GB on two boards. Does it affect dual channel operation, especially with only two 4 GB bars?
  2. Latest RZ version of RoyTam has the nss files updated: http://o.rthost.win/gpc/files1.rt/rzbrowser-tls12-20221208.7z nss files version 3.21.4 Older RZ versions throw out the message.
  3. A separate topic is probably more appropriate. But yes, we have tested BCW files of Extended Kernel or KDW. Our results are in several topics. Not all files are suitable on ME/98 with KernelEx! Jumper recommends msvcrt.dll (v7.0.9981.0 or v6.1.9848.0) with KernelEx. I usually use 7.0.9981.0. Goodmaneuver also has version v8.0.40607.52, which he had successfully tested on his system. Later versions of 8.0 or 7.1 are not usable or cause special errors on ME/98/KernelEx. https://web.archive.org/web/20230602195245/https://kernelex.sourceforge.net/wiki/VLC_Media_Player https://web.archive.org/web/20230506001046/https://kernelex.sourceforge.net/mediawiki/index.php?title=Category:Compatible_applications&redirect=no
  4. Do you mean the following with "(18/19/25a)"? "Requirements: KernelEx: KernelEx.dll 4.5.2016.25, Kexbasen.dll 4.5.2016.25, Kexbases.dll 25, Core.ini 25h with Kexcom.dll 18, Sheet.dll 19, verify.exe 18 and VKrnlEx.vxd of 18" Do you have a specific error message that refers to a dll, for example? I generally recommend to follow jumpers instructions and not to use any (third-party) installers out there. These can be wildly packed/mixed packages.
  5. - Don't merge LZDLL_ME.reg or LZDLL.reg for Win98 of KernelEx update18 into the registry! Firefox will crash immediately on start . - Firefox 48 could run without GUI - see issues FF 24-51 first page. Check it with a ProcessManager or TaskManager. Solution: Install DirectX 9c and set "layers.acceleration.force-enabled" => true (prefs.js) Alternatively the boolean "layers.offmainthreadcomposition.force-basic" = true (prefs.js) makes v48 usable. Start and run it with a slightly reduced window size. - Use Kstub824 or 825 - not both. Example contents line in Core.ini: [BASE] contents=std,Kexbasen,Kexbases,Kstub825 desc=Base enhancements (api fixes + extensions) You can check with jumpers Ktree whether it is loaded.
  6. To narrow down the problem - Can you start Firefox 31 or 48? And you didn't mention Kext (Kstub 824 or 825 + ini file). This is required to start v52, too.
  7. Don't use msvcr71.dll (v7.10.xxxx) as msvcrt.dll. It can cause errors. Use version 6.10.9848.0 or 7.00.9981.0 as msvcrt.dll. And don't use K452stub. Further I recommend to omit iphlpapi4 for now, too. I believe it isn't needed anymore with later KernelEx versions. I never used it, because it caused some problems on ME here. As far as I remember it was Ok on 98SE. Booting DOS for update is a matter of taste. I've dual-boot systems. The update is also possible in safe mode or with a (linux) live CD. Further jumper wrote a bat installer years ago. Basically, follow jumpers instructions.
  8. New Icedove 20240106 doesn't work. Folder Pane / Message Pane are blank and the menu works incorrectly. I also tried it with a new clean profile.
  9. If I understand you correctly, you mean that the background of url and search bar shouldn't have the fading effect (should be white). If so, than it is probably a theme bug and more cosmetic. I had also looked at this on Win7.
  10. Yes, the flash player is enabled in the old browsers. My installed version is I also tried the frontend in Opera 10 without success. The player also doesn't work in Opera here.
  11. I tried it briefly. The player doesn't work in RT's Retrozilla or KM 1.5.4 TLS1.2 and it works in RT's Firefox 3.6 (KernelEx needed) only for some seconds here. It seems to run well in Firefox 9.0.1 (KernelEx needed).
  12. This could be faulty. 4.7 is available on fontawesome.com, too. Or look into folder webfonts of the ...web.zip's. There you find ttf. The question is also, whether you're the only one having the problem. I haven't installed Supermium, so I can't test and verify this.
  13. Sure, it is "FontAwesome"! https://fontawesome.com https://github.com/FortAwesome/Font-Awesome
  14. Sorry - yes it's all here, I didn't follow the thread thoroughly. Thanks
  15. https://www.livefromiceland.is/ https://www.mediamarkt.de/ are broken since versions 20230318 here.
  16. There is no problem to bookmark pages with Firefox3.6 here. Also the history works. I can't bookmark beginning with FF4. My first modified core.ini with a clone had not yet worked, so that KernelEx failed on start. I need more attempts. How should I configure the core.ini and that clone to get the definitions not system wide with Kext so only with that new compatibility mode? But I tested a bit with the new copy of Kexstubs only. Browsers became extremely slow and hence unusable and I still couldn't bookmark new pages (nothing happened).
  17. Thanks for taking care of the problem , I probably can't test it before Wednesday or Thursday.
  18. I don't receive any new Kstub log entries. I also never succeeded in assigning an API. Nothing happens, if I try to make a new bookmark. There's no window "New Bookmark" or "Page Bookmarked". The window "Edit Bookmark" appears, if the bookmark exists. Old problem from 2011 - never really completely fixed. I don't know, whether the culprit is still in it: https://sourceforge.net/p/kernelex/feature-requests/7/
  19. Today I noticed, that all my file shares seem broken. I renewed the link (file share) of Firefox 31.8 (1st post). @ Kurt_Aust, you use Kext, so it can be, that an additional entry/definition in Kstub causes the error on exit. The simple replace of places.sqlite with one of Firefox on XP or 7 should work, too. Then you can use the existing History and Bookmarks, but you still can't add bookmarks and recently visited addresses still aren't saved.
  20. ... can't verify. On ME it looks the same to me as on XPSP3.
  21. The 32KB file is corrupt / created garbled on ME or 98 / KernelEx. History doesn't work properly - not solved: Recently visited addresses aren't saved.
  22. places.sqlite has a fixed size of 10.240KB regardless of the size of the history. I had run this portable version Firefox 31.8 from the first post on XP once to ensure, that the functions "restore previous session, recently closed tabs and recently closed window" work and the pages load as they should. Re-creating places.sqlite on 98 may break functionality again.
