Re: hd audio getting in the way of real hardware testing

The driver literally hard locks my computer including the new version. I will try to get a debug log but a backtrace seems impossible currently.
Please consider not including this driver in the 0.4.11 release or newer release builds until the issues with it are resolved.

Re: Target Kernel

It's funny this being talked about when hardware driver compatibility is improving, changing now would be a waste of all the developers time that was invested. Only once xp hardware support is stable it would make sense to move on. But what may help the eventual transition would be if WDF & UDF were...

Re: Help with ReactOS on real hardware.

Windows 10 drivers will not work, however the chipset for your network and sound is Realtek based so you may be in luck for them. Realtek still makes xp drivers for sound and networking. Last i checked the sound drivers don't work yet but the network drivers often do so you can try them. https://www...

hd audio getting in the way of real hardware testing

The hd audio driver included with ReactOS is really causing problems for doing testing on real hardware. It's not too bad if you only have hd audio integrated on the motherboard and can disable it in the bios but otherwise it pretty much guarantees a crash or bsod if you have hdmi or other devices t...

Re: Can you help me understand ...

Your primary use case seems to be gaming. ReactOS isn't yet really stable for this. Not exactly, but my kids are good at video games and prefer a decent graphics card when visiting. Is it a concern to anyone here that open source support is provided by AMD for it's products when running Linux, but ...

Re: When will ReactOS x64 available?

Under the current development modality, probably never. However, my hope is a shift in development initiative will come. There is nothing wrong with the developers, there aren't enough of them, and they lack time to do a lot of the work. Interest by a corporate or academic sponsor could be helpful....

Re: When will ReactOS x64 available?

Given the current status located on the wiki page i'm pretty certain the 64-bit built will boot to desktop long before v1.0. https://reactos.org/wiki/AMD64 But who knows how long it will take to reach the same level as the 32-bit build. The 64bit build should make it easier to target newer systems t...

wow! that's something even wine can't do.

I think 2004 and 2007 both check for a valid windows product key.

Re: How to build ReactOS explorer for Win7?

This is the most recent x64 build https://iso.reactos.org/livecd/reactos-livecd-0.4.11-dev-206-g4066c42-x64-msvc-win-dbg.7z Thank you. Unfortunately, it lacks rshell.dll, which is required for working on NT6. I think the current explorer.exe no longer uses rshell.dll would probably need to include ...

Re: Aspects of Vista/7/8/10 that should NOT be ported to React

Now more to the topic, if we change targets, then there are things we'd have to port, even if we don't like them. Those would be changes related to graphics and sound. Hardware sound acceleration would likely not be usable, and getting a compositing engine (DWM) would likely be necessary. I don't k...
