Re: roadmap and priorities

I didn't mean the memory management when I said this. I ment the way the project is handled. But I am not 100% sure yet where exactly the error is. But I noticed the ugly symptoms like the growing amount of bugs, the feeling that more and more falls apart (like not being able to boot anymore, not be...

Re: roadmap and priorities

I think you misunderstood one part of my comment. When I said "If no reasonable solutions are found then this project might very well never leave it's early development stage no matter how much time passes by and how much development time flows into the project." I didn't mean that the development i...

Re: roadmap and priorities

reactosfanboy: After I read your comment I was considering if I should completely abandon the ReactOS project and waste no more time with it because it's probably not going to become anything useful anyway. Especially the "continue like you currently do devs! You are doing a great job!" made me sick...

roadmap and priorities

Hello, there was an issue created in JIRA addressing the handling of priorities of issues. https://jira.reactos.org/browse/CORE-14105 There were reclamations that the focus of development is somewhat misplaced. For example a lot of development resources where flowing into the fancy additional lautus...

Re: New drivers for ReactOS / older windows

I tried to install a bunch of Windows XP drivers on ReactOS and I always failed. The installation failed or the system didn't boot anymore. I was able to replace an usb related file/driver. I copied C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\usbehci.sys from Windows XP to C:\ReactOS\system32\drivers\usbehci.sys af...

Re: 0.4.7 RC1 - USB works only in the first second

Your help in testing is much appreciated. Especially because of the RS-232 problem on my computer I probably can't do much more for this USB issue. My other PCs don't have the USB issue. They also have issues with USB but different ones. I just tested the live CD you linked to. With SATA set to AHCI...

Re: How many of you still use Windows XP?

I'm using Windows XP as my primary system. The more time passes by, the more secure it becomes (viruses crash instead of doing damage). Drivers are an issue where you can have different opinions. On the one hand less and less hardware has support for Windows xp. On the other hand nowadays new hardwa...

Re: 0.4.7 RC1 - USB works only in the first second

I just read that some other people have problems communicating with the serial port, too, when they use the motherboard that I have. They used an older version of the Linux kernel (2.6) but a newer version fixed that problem. I also read that it is possible to set the address of the serial port in t...

Re: 0.4.7 RC1 - USB works only in the first second

Ok, so I pulled out the CD drive with the live CD and plugged in the test hard drive so I have a C:. Yes, ReactOS was able to boot up to desktop again and produce this "debug.log"-file. So I shut down the computer (pulling the power plug because input devices don't work) and then installed this test...

Re: swenum.sys crash

The developers probably need more information. When I reported a bug regarding USB they asked me for a debug log. You can receive it by using the "ReactOS (Debug)" option to receive it over a RS-232 cable or using the "ReactOS (screen)" option to receive it on your screen.

Re: 0.4.7 RC1 - USB works only in the first second

In a virtual machine the bug probably wouldn't appear. I just received a debug log from a different machine with the same null modem cable and pin header to d-sub-adapter on the receiving machine. So receiving does not seem to be the problem. Sending seems to be. Can't we fix this by software? I act...

Re: 0.4.7 RC1 - USB works only in the first second

Thank you for the link. But yes, I used the "ReactOS (debug)" option. It gets selected automatically if I don't touch the keyboard. https://www.reactos.org/wiki/images/6/63/StartMenu.png I don't know if it has anything to do with this issue, but on my motherboard there is no fully implemented RS-232...

Re: 0.4.7 RC1 - USB works only in the first second

I am sorry, I am not able to receive anything. Are these settings correct? The wiki article just says that the control flow should be done by hardware. http://ontheserver.de/temp/ReactOS/putty_settings.png I also noticed, that if I use the installation CD to install ReactOS on my test hard disc from...

@middings: Ok, thank you. That sounds good. Then I can also receive a full debug log in the text form instead of wasting so much black toner powder and till now I was only able to show you the last lines. The motherboard of the not working computer has only a pin header for RS-232 so I will need to ...

Re: 0.4.7 RC1 - USB works only in the first second

Is there a way to trigger the backtrace output without entering the letters "b" and "t" through the not-working keyboard?

I am kind of out of ideas how to further help in finding the bug.
