What I'd like to see would be OEM 'discounts' based on not selling machines without MS software declared illegal, together with an obligation on OEM's to seperately price OS and other 'bundled' software and ensuring they are OPTIONAL!

Does that signal a return to 'normal' development of the non-kernel code at that stage then, or will it be all hands to the auditing pumps still?

I hit that problem too, and got further (not all the way, but beyond that) by re-emerging all the xmingw-* stuff with -m32 as a cflag (be careful to only use it for non-vital stuff though ;) ). Then I hit another brick wall which I can't even remember (I think while building the boot cd image), so i...

Yep my bad, my mingw toolchain was 64 bit which the code seemed not to like.... :( Have recompiled that toolchain and managed to get svn to compile.

Can't boot the liveCD that I made or produce a boot CD, but I'll keep hitting away at it.

Slim down linux? My kernel comes in at 1.8Mb, only a problem if you want to boot from a floppy really... & could probably get one small enough fairly easily (chop out a load of useful-but-not-necessary stuff like ALSA) Or do they really mean slimming down gnome/kde? If so there's always fluxbox / op...

Live CD runs ok, & pre-built work fine on x86_64 qemu on the machine... (haven't risked a hardware install) Wasn't intending on building in 64 bit, but know little enough about mingw... Maybe I'll hack around at the makefile and add a few -m32's hoping that it's roughly the same as 'the real' gcc. I...

Yes I am, is that what's causing the problem? Any suggestion on getting around it, or on where to start looking?

Nah, MS could rootkit you so that's not the best option. Now, if you build everything from source that you're actually read yourself then you're safe ;) What? I think you missunderstood me. The proposal for x64 Vista is that all kernel mode software must be signed before it will load. Thus, opensou...

Actually I believe the Vista licence is going to be 'tied' to the motherboard & technically you'd breach it by upgrading your mobo without buying a fresh licence (presuming you use it anyway ;) ) http://www.theregister.com/2006/02/17/microsoft_oem_shocker/ [edit] ok just actually read the document, ...

Compilation of svn under Gentoo: Not a valid WIN32 res. file

Well, subject should say it all. Tried a few times updating svn tree each time over last week or so, always ends like this (sorry if too much output!) Running xmingw-gcc 3.4.4, xmingw-binutils 2.15.94.20050118.1 (think a cvs version, have tried with 2.15.90.0.2 too once or twice but appears the same...
