Re: Disk Drives vs. Mount Points ?.

The NTFS support for volume mount points, is that it allows you to create these symbolic "directory" links within a NTFS volume, to some other volume. But even without NTFS you can still have volume mount points, managed by the mount manager, that appear in the NT namespace as \??\Volume{SOME-GUID-H...

Re: Disk Drives vs. Mount Points ?.

Unix-versions (Solaris, Linux, BSD, BeOS, MacOS X, NextStep, ...) don't have this nonelastic system of drive letters for addressing. The file system is here independent of the hardware. The hardware (disks, floppies, cdroms, ram, ...) cant be mounted via mountpoints in the file system. Otherwise yo...

Re: reactos priority? or mess?

If Linux had only "supporters" that asked things to be done without actually implementing them properly, Linux wouldn't be where it is now and you would not be using it as well.

Re: PS/2 mouse not found

Hello, I wanted to update ReactOS on an old Duron 700. The previously installed version was more than 10 years old. I had to go back from 0.4.13 to 0.4.11 to get it running. All more recent versions resulted in a BSOD. One of my main problems is, that the device manager no longer lists my PS/2-mous...

Who cares? Windows et al. can run on VMWare Workstation 7 --> ReactOS can do that too.

I don't think we should add newer visual studio's to react os as they are written in wpf instead of win32.
And how WPF itself is written, then?

Re: Is anyone working on a react os ide?

Why would you spend time on something like this if you can use visual studio? Why spend time on Linux when there is Unix? Why spend time on ReactOS when there is Windows? You see the pattern? I personally would like a truely free and open source IDE. But whatever suits you. Greetings Peter The goal...

It's more like the filesystem is destroying itself, instead of freeldr.

Re: Compile ReactOS 0.2.0 explorer.exe from source on windows 10.

Interesting... :) Nevertheless at that time the code was compatible with whatever version of GCC/MinGW that was existing back then (in 2004).

Re: Compile ReactOS 0.2.0 explorer.exe from source on windows 10.

Since you want to compile the explorer_old from ROS 0.2.0, are you using the correspondingly older version of RosBE, that uses an older version of GCC that should be more lenient concerning these sorts of warnings?

Re: Opening hive file failed! (after successful installation)

The "Ramdisk" boot item menu is a template, where you have yourself to manually change the file name and provide a RAM raw disk image file.
