Re: Just re-built my 17 year old computer... how to start ReactOS testing?

Before upgrading I did a format C: /q. The 4.13 dbg build now detecs the 60 GB drive. :) And it's finally possible to boot to desktop and get serial debug output. I think FAT32 is the better choice since its also supported by Windows. I can even exchange small system files using an old Win 98 1.44 M...

Re: Just re-built my 17 year old computer... how to start ReactOS testing?

Hm,
I opened two JIRA tickets. But the JIRA guys stated that 4.10 was too old.

-Will I get serial output when I install the latest 4.12 RC...someting boot CD build?

-do I have to or should I prepare the system when I try another ROS version? e.g. formatting or deltreeing the harddrives?

Re: Just re-built my 17 year old computer... how to start ReactOS testing?

...and here are my first results: Before testing, I have deleted all partitions and formatted both HDDs using an old Win 98 boot floppy with fdisk and format.com. So I got an empty 60GB drive C: and an empty 10GB drive D: with FAT32 as file system. Image file: ReactOS 0.4.10 + new USB from vgal.ru.c...

Re: Creative EAX Aureal 3D and others in old games

As far as I understand it (which is little), hardware acceleration of audio was no longer supported in Vista.... Interesting, thank you. Will it be possible to make both audio systems coexist in the same machine? Like allowing the user to assign what audio system a program will use. +1 ;) On the GU...

User "blackwingcat" from the msfn BB

Hi, recently I asked Google if some features are available with my current Windows XP installation. So I stumbled across the user blackwingcat of the MSFN forum. Is this user already active at the ReactOS project? Here is his profile at the msfn forum: http://www.msfn.org/board/profile/194613-blackw...

Re: ReactOS 0.4.0 und ROS im Jahr 2020

Es gibt leider halt viel zu viele Leute, die es einfach nicht auf ihren Schirm bekommen, was Open Source ist und wer für gewöhnlich dort mitarbeitet. ReactOS ist ein klassisches Open Source Projekt bei dem Leute ihre Freizeit investieren und ihr Geld woanders verdienen. Wie jeder wissen sollte ist ...

Re: Idea: ReactOffice?

hi it may be easier to create a compatibility plugin to run the MS of plugins imho if i used MS Office i stick with Office 2003 i do not like the ribbon interface I think that is exactly why a ReactOffice would be useful. MS Office 2003 is not supported anymore by MS. Generally the combination of W...

Idea: ReactOffice?

Some time ago I was looking for document management software. Most of the software is compatible to MS office and offers plug ins which install additional buttons in some menu bars, for example. When you buy additional office software a certain version of it only supports certain MS office versions....

Re: Can ReactOS Cause Damage to Real Hardware?

Of course ReactOS will never demage hardware intentionally. But you should keep in mind that this piece of software is an alpha stage operating system with full access to all the hardware components of the computer. There might be theoretical scenarios that some bug causes important data being overw...

Implementing Core Audio as native ReactOs Audio API

Sounds strange... The following thoughts came into my mind: 1) The problem with Windows has always been the high latency DirectSound Audio System, which makes the OS unsuitable for more advanced audio recording tasks by default. You always have to deal with ASIO workarounds. 2) In ReactOS, all Direc...

Wie offen ist ReactOS für alternative Datenrenderpfade?

Ich habe eben nachgedacht, und festgestellt, dass Apples MacOS auch deswegen bei Kreativen so beliebt ist, weil es spezielle "Datenrenderpfade" mit besonders gut geeigneten Spezifikationen bietet. Beispiel Drucker: Apple benutzte schon in frühen MacOS-Versionen sog. "Display Postscript", was sich le...
