Re: Ext2Fsd.sys fails with ext4 filesystem flavor: "unknown feature"

Hi again, just to give a report - I assume that mainly Ext2Fsd users may be affected by the mentioned issue (Ext2 IFS by Stefan Schreiber has no ext4 support yet, and pure Linux users commonly won't bother about a present ext4 64-bit feature) - disabeling the feature flag is possible, without reform...

Re: Ext2Fsd.sys fails with ext4 filesystem flavor: "unknown feature"

Hi Karl and others, only a couple of minutes ago, I realized myself that the volume in fact uses 64-bit mode. As I'm explicitly running Tumbleweed's 32-bit version (the Intel Centrino CPU in my Thinkpad T43 doesn't handle 64-bit code) on a quite small harddisk, I didn't expect that the installer's f...

Ext2Fsd.sys fails with ext4 filesystem flavor: "unknown feature"

Hi all, the Ext2Fsd ext2/3/4 file system driver by Matt Wu is part of ReactOS distributions since several years. I have used Ext2Fsd on several systems, and Matt's driver successfully opened ext2 as well as ext4 volumes. (The latter were formatted with the mkfs.ext4 releases included in Ubuntu 14.04...

Re: ChkDskX history (version issue), sources?

Thanks for the links, HBelusca the information contained therein is enlightening! (Russinovich's explanation on the DLL chain loaded by CHKDSK and FORMAT). However bad news for Windows NT 4.0: as the command line tools are rather frontends for FMIFS.DLL and dependencies, which are continuously impro...

ChkDskX history (version issue), sources?

Hello Development Forum, when testing ReactOS v0.4.4, I was surprised to see ChkDskX v1.0.1 by Emanuele Aliberti, based on sources by Mark Russinovich, as the system's default CHKDSK program. All the more because I hadn't seen any code of Russinovich's freeware tools, I didn't know that he ever publ...

Re: CAPTCHA issues upon registration

Hi ThFabba, thanks for your in-depth explanations. A consolation after a six-hour effort! I didn't know that forum sites are so highly affected/ attacked by spammers. Back in 1998, I simply wrote to mailing lists (and quickly obtained replies), or posted to newsgroups. Today, many mailing lists requ...

Beobachtungen beim Einsatz von ReactOS 0.4.4

Hallo Forum! Nachdem mir vor einigen Jahren ein Blick auf ReactOS 0.3.14 verwehrt blieb (bekam's auf meiner Hardware nicht zum Laufen), habe ich mich 2017 länger mit ReactOS 0.4.4 beschäftigt. Beobachtungen habe ich notiert. Sie beziehen sich auf Installation, Nutzbarkeit/ Usability und Dateisystem-...

CAPTCHA issues upon registration

Hi all! While I finally managed to register with this site (as you see :), I'd however like to notify you about oddities I encountered during the registration process. Have to point out that my internet access bandwidth is limited (only 64 kbps, i.e. ISDN speed). With full-featured browser, complex ...
