Submitting patches

Hi all, thanks for the help on getting me up and running with SVN. I have the trunk set up on my hard drive along with RosBE and it all compiles well. One more question, how do I submit patches I've made to the code? I know one way is in bugzilla when it's a bug (are the developers notified when a p...

The Russian military OS? Never heard of it :D although that sounds like an interesting piece of software. When you described it it reminded me of the QNX boot disk a bit (it's a 1.44 MB disk with a kernel, GUI, a web browser and a few drivers, which was interesting at the time). You may want to chec...

This is a very interesting topic! Coming from asm I know that your final code size isn't directly related to how fast it runs, and even that's relative and dependent on the target CPU and its caches and so on. But I hadn't seen any such discussion to do with C. Maybe the 3.4.2 compiler generated who...

Access to SVN code/diffs

I understand ROS uses SVN for diffs and identifying the latest modifications to the source code. As is, the SVN source can't be accessed (other than the entire tarball) as it's password protected. Is there any way to tell which code has changed since the last time I downloaded the tarball (so as to ...

Flappz, are you asking about putting the drivers on an ISO image to use as a backup or on the official distribution iso? Technically, I'm sure there's a way but haven't looked at enough of the code yet. However, the drivers you have are probably proprietary and they wouldn't make a good addition to ...

Woops, didn't check this thread for a few days. I had to look at the 0.3.0 and then 0.4 SVN code to realize what Frik85 posted as the same code keeps producing slightly different visuals with each release. It seems that the code will work right once all the functionality is implemented - meanwhile t...

ReactOS is currently alpha software (you'll see that elsewhere on the forum). So certain oddities in your hardware configuration can cause it to crash. The thing that got my attention is that you said even your windows quit running. Since it obviously isn't the harddrive, I'd check out the RAM next....

Unless the amount of delopers more than doubles but i doubt thatll happen well, if I can tell all my programmer buddies about ROS and everyone else does the same this has a real chance of happening. I'd also be interested in participating in the shop idea/implementation, I've dealt with osCommerce ...

NICE! I'd be happy if they pick Linux over winblows, but ROS over Linux is a better choice still, not just because of the lightweight specs. Either way, this should make OLPC developments more interesting.

ReactOS on an OLPC?

http://hardware.slashdot.org/hardware/06/12/05/0324221.shtml The article talks about whether Linux or Windows would be better on these computers with limited resources (about 512 MB of flash). Might be just me but ROS's small size would make it ideal for a device like that, once it becomes more sta...

Heh

The default build is already very agile by my standards. ROS really is an energizer bunny compared to MS's snail-like approach to convoluting everything endlessy. Though I'll take a look at that too, once I get a bit more familiar with the code. I know linux can accomplish some amazing things with a...

User32\Radio button

Hi all, I just started playing with the ROS source code today, and decided to first try fixing the look of the user32 radio button. This isn't nearly as futuristic as some of the things posted in the other threads, but the radio button is the only visually deformed control so I figured might as well...

Keep up the good work!

Hi all, I just got into ReactOS seriously [or rather its source code] today, but have dabbled with it before. :D Just wanted to say, keep up the good work, this is a great project with great potential! - and I'll try to educate myself enough to help it as much as I can too on the side.. And honestly...

LBA/FAT16

This "bug" must be limited to FAT16 partitions only. ReactOS installs fine on an existing FAT32 partition that I use for 2 windows NT-based installs among other things.

My question is why use FAT16 when FAT32 is available (other than save some space by using a smaller FAT)?
