Re: Compile Wine without libwine.dll linking

We provide all functions which the dll or app might need, but not over a wrapper library, we do it like windows. If there's a function needed, it will be included by the derivate of the original windows dll we have in our tree. This is not entirely true. We use libwine for some purposes, especially...

Re: Some more testing, please!

Revision 58644 added the open source driver of the C-Media 8738/8768 audio chipset. "The latest release is 1.2.6 (July 13th 2009)" says the official site. Does it mean that the development is now taken over by the ROS team? The ROS team has integrated that last release into trunk so that the driver...

Some more testing, please!

Now that the testing asked by Z98 is over, It's my turn to ask you, the community, something. Revision 58644 added the open source driver of the C-Media 8738/8768 audio chipset. So, if any of you has one in their possession (see this list ), I would love to hear from them. The testing should be as s...

Re: OS standardizing the hardware driver

Such standards already exist: PCI bus, VESA-compliant GPU, USB storage devices, SATA controllers... You couldn't even install windows or linux or <put your favorite OS here> on your computer without such standards. The current situation is far from being perfect (think about (wireless) network contr...

Re: To VMWare users

That would be technically doable using the software rendering driver, but I'm afraid that without accelerated support (which only VMWare provides for windows, AFAIK), we're stuck.

To VMWare users

Some of you might have noticed that recent gallium opengl driver (using software rendering) was imported in trunk, and is now used as a backend for opengl software implementation in ReactOS. This upgrade was the occasion to fix seeral bugs in ReactOS. VMWare opengl driver is exactly the same as this...

Re: CMake Compiler Help

Is your user name really <user>? No, I just changed that because of security reasons. But now that I see it, It wasn't necessary. I've uninstalled my own CMake like you asked me to, but nothing's changed about the errors. I even reinstalled the build environment to make sure that it was using it's ...

Re: ARM3

My point is, code names are common, and I haven't heard of anyone getting into legal trouble over private names for features or pending projects. Even duplicate trademark names for different markets are common too. There is both an Apple Computers and an Apple Records. (Outdated name now since they...

Re: MSHTML bug during Installation has been fixed

Indeed. As vic said, please test this, so this bug can be closed.

For those who also compile the test suite, please also run "ntdll_apitest NtAllocateVirtualMemory" from command line. (It's in c:\Reactos\bin). It should report no errors. Otherwise, please let us know.

Re: Gambit-C & Basic-256 work, FreeSSHd almost.

A quick look at the code shows that the underlying kernel support is unimplemented.

I wonder how STATUS_NOT_IMPLEMENTED can end up to ERROR_INVALID_FUNCTION, though. The magic of NTSTATUS <> Win32 error mapping ;-)

Re: December 2011 meeting minutes

I just edited the first post. Sorry for the confusion about 0.3.15. The idea was mentioned by Sylvain, but no decision were taken. I should have been clearer on this issue.

Re: December 2011 meeting minutes

I can't believe that an official release would contain a bug that could prevent people from completing installation. I just don't see the point at all. The issue has been discussed a great number of times and was very controversial, as shows the vote result. Some were against, some favoured a relea...

Re: DXGL

I can't see what it could bring us that wined3d has not.

The only difference I can see is that this officially targets compatibility on top of openGL 2.0, while sometimes wine uses proprietary extensions and takes openGL features where they are, without reqally worrying about version.
