xHCI : A life lesson learnt

Recently I’ve worked on Scratchpad allocation. Scratchpad buffers are PAGESIZE blocks of system memory which the xHCI uses to store its internal state. xHCI can request 0 to 1024 buffers. Number of buffers required is given in the HCSPARAMS1 register. Each buffer is a PAGESIZE block aligned to PAGESIZE boundary.

GSOC Project TSE Week 9

Hey there, its Shriraj here! 0/

We are already in week 9 of this 12-week journey of GSoC! Soon about to take the final lap, but wait we have a lot to do before that. This time too I don't have any pics as such to show visible progress, but yeah let's see through words what I managed to do last week. ;P

GSoC NTFS 2017 Update 8

Hello World!

I know it hasn't been very long since the last update. The last few updates were late, but I'm trying to get back into good habits like committing often and blogging on time. :)

Last time, I talked about how ReactOS was corrupting my test volume by trying to create files I wasn't ready for it to create.

GSoC NTFS 2017 Update 7

Hi everyone! Last week I left off with an example of creating files, showing you how an index node fills up with file names. Once the node in a B-Tree gets too full, it needs to be split. I've been working on this for a while and I was expecting that I'd have an example of this working. I even delayed writing this post because I was so sure this feature was almost ready. Sadly, it looks like it will be a little longer still. :(

I did make some progress I can show off though. I fixed a bug that was preventing creating a file via right-clicking in a folder. This is working now:

GSOC Project TSE Week 8 : Phase 3

Hey there! 0/

Sorry for posting my blog late this time :P. Was kinda busy with my family duties, besides some errands. Also, my college is starting from this week. As devs, we are better coders than writers but yeah, as a GSoC norm, blogging is a healthy habit which keeps us updated. ;)
