Re: Posix subsystem in ROS

Can Posix subsystem (gcc rewrite) be made more useful as an alternative framework by emulating the cygwin itself -- so that applications with posix type dependencies such as those based on cygwin (e.g. cygnome, kde-cygwin, cygwin-xfce, etc) for example to improve upon these applications to run faste...

Re: Free basic question

If you use the freebasic compiler from a more broadly used IDE such as Geany, (instead of FBIDE or FBas Ide) and Glade3 Designer, then the libraries located under the mingw/openwatcomm (gnu gcc) framework should be robust enough to fulfill whatever the vsdotnet provides. CodeBlocks/Anjuta does not c...

Re: availability of network based software installer interfa

ok, thanks.
is a portable version (portable across to windows, etc) also available?
for e.g. ROSExplorer is available both for reactos and windows, etc.

availability of network based software installer interface

I want to know whether there is any third party utility which can map all the gtk/qt/wx based .exe of the web into one single cool web2 interface such as the apple-software-installer or the ubuntu-software-installer (not the synaptic). Moreover, such a feature would also help in knowing more about o...

Re: regarding the relationship of .exe with software-install

Ok, so one cannot be able to borrow and port the registry-write and packet type installers across platforms, and that a registry-write installer system is very good in fixing the corrupted software installations, as I found during power failure with an effect as though nothing has happened at all. I...

Re: regarding the relationship of .exe with software-install

I found from somewhere that the old macosx before the intelmac transition was almost purely pascal based os, which currently it is not but which the greengnome appears to share and begin with in its alpha stage. Now, macosx uses an installer known as dmg-installer for installing the .dmg files and p...

Re: Which your favorite programming language??

basic is the simplest language offering a wide range of the set of OOPS classes such as the use of gtkbasic and wxbasic via freebasic/gambas frameworks, fbide/geany/gambas ide and glade designer (for freebasic and geany), or the gtk#basic from mono's mbas compiler (and glade designer). then there is...

Re: Which your favorite programming language??

python is my favorite programming language with very high productivity which only the openjdk (eclipse) and mono can match, which however is slow for very low level programming for which we inevitably need to turn for c, pascal, c++, d, etc. ruby is equally productive with the added advantage of a 5...

regarding the relationship of .exe with software-installers

As we know, the common installation/executable format file used for dos, windows and reactos are .exe, which in case of dos' .exe is different from windows (like .rpm are different for two different rpm based linuxes) but they are identical in case of windows and reactos (like .deb are comparatively...

Re: possibility of adding support for freedos shell into rea

my main aim is to alternatively switch recompiling the greengnome code between the lazarus ide (installed as a reactos application) on one hand and the freepascal of freedos (C:\freedos\freepascal) [both of which also contains the gtkfp objects], and since greengnome depends on win32, so invoke both...

Re: possibility of bringing zpanel/samba and webmin into rea

I'm still not fully clear from the reply to the earlier question regarding the .so and .dll, i.e. 1. whether the .so files are unixoid in nature due to the following: a) even after recompilation within windows/reactos the .so are still foreign and are thus not capable of substituting the .dll or any...
