OS/2 on X21?

#1 Post by ieure » Mon Sep 02, 2019 1:07 pm

I'm thinking of playing around with OS/2 again, and have this X21 that's not doing anything important. I see that the X/T4x/p were supported by OS/2 4.x, so I assume that means the X21 ought to run it okay. Am I right, or way... not right?

Yep. SciTech SNAP seems to support the ATI Rage Mobility so you get accelerated graphics, too.

In regards to the Audio/Ethernet they use different chips than the T43 so you'd have to hunt down the driver packs for those (it's possible IBM even had official OS/2 drivers for the X21 but I never checked).
