Welcome to the os2warp.be
Compatible Hardware List for OS/2 and eComStation (os2warp.be CHL).
Here you will find information about which devices will run on OS/2 or eComStation,
and where you can get the drivers. This extensive listing is updated at
monthly basis, ensuring the accuracy and future.
Currently, you can access the os2warp.be Compatible Hardware List in full text
mode only, but we're currently developing an easy-to-use Java Applet in association
with Serenity Systems International and Mensys to facilitate access.
os2warp.be is constantly striving to attain the goal of reaching a 100% accurate
and complete OS/2 CHL. Prior to the inclusion of a particular hardware device
in our databases, it must comply with the some severe and strict rules. In association
with our business associates which have their own proper Support Departments
to provide OS/2 support, each device is tested extensively by the os2warp.be
CHL testing team.
The hardware included in the list was tested with OS/2 versions beginning from
post-Warp3 (OS/2 Warp 4 Advanced Server) to xCP2 and eCS 1.1. Not all drivers
will work with older OS/2 Warp versions.
Any information about your hardware that runs perfectly on OS/2 would be greatly
valued. Please help to maintain this list and to keep it up-to-date by
filling in this
Though all the hardware included in the list has been tested thoroughly, the
possibility does exist that you won't be able to get the hardware device running
(due to wrong IRQ assignment or wrong configuration of your system etc.).
Mind what Mr. Bob St.John of Serenity Systems Intl said:
>All devices MUST work, otherwise they're not included
>in the list. If I shouldn't use this policy, then
>this list wouldn't value anything, and I can say laud
>and clear: EVERYTHING WILL WORK.
>So you can be really sure of that!
Well ... we all need to be careful on things like this. I'm
grateful for the work Jonas is doing. But all of us have
seen something work for one user and not for another. That's why IBM's "systems
testing" for supported devices or software
is so expensive. And even then, it doesn't always work
Just need to be careful that we don't create an impression
that something works for everyone all the time. But simply be
precise that this was tested and worked in "this
environment", then go on to describe the environment.
If things should go wrong, or if you have a question about OS/2 and hardware,
you can make use of os2warp.be Technical
Support Center. Unless you've got a Business Contract for os2warp.be
Corporate Support, this support is in no circumstances binding. Neither
os2warp.be, nor os2warp.be Support Services, nor os2warp.be Business IT Solutions,
nor Jonas Buys, nor any team member of the os2warp.be project can be held responsible
for the eventual loss of data, nor possible damage to your system.
This list is the result of an intense effort os2warp.be has put in it.
We would appreciate it if you wouldn't copy its information, nor edit it afterwards,
nor re-use it on other websites. Violating this rules, and the rules as
described in the Copyrights
Page will lead to severe consequences and juridical actions will be undertaken
if a violation is detected.
