Re: How far is ext2 support in ReactOS?

OK as it stands now: - Usetup (1st stage setup) can create a format an ext2 volume - FreeLoader (unlike NTLDR) CAN boot ReactOS from ext2 - The current issue is that it seems our ext2 driver has bit-rotted but Art has a new one which he can import which supposedly works - However, the ext2 driver de...

Re: LiveCD on Real Hardware

what about enabling NDIS debug? Just because it stops there, doesn't mean that NDIS is responsible. In fact, NDIS does nothing without a NIC or protocol driver which loads much later in boot. People always like to think NDIS is the bad guy when people get these hangs, but I'll bet you just about an...

Yes, we support hot-plugging in the USB stack.

Re: USB now works

Now, what i'd like to know if it will be possible to debug via a USB cable. More recent hardware doesn't have serial ports, so this may be what's needed to get some better real-hardware debug going. That would be very cool, but it's not that easy. But once we finish/fix support for installing and b...

I can't verify that this works because VirtualBox doesn't support booting from USB but I'd like to hear your results.

Re: Lots of USB commits last days...

OK here's some clarification. I'm not working on the mount manager at the moment. I've just hacked our current non-plug and play storage stack to support addition and removal of drive letters after boot (obviously needed for USB drives to mount). We will need to implement a full plug and play storag...

Re: Is wireless lan supported now?

WLAN is currently supported in trunk and will be supported in 0.3.14. As for the driver support, I tested a cheap Realtek 8185 based PCI WLAN card and another developer tested an Atheros based card. I had a slight issue at first with mine but I easily identified the problem and fixed it (somebody di...

Re: Request for testing on real hardware

Question: I know the target driver version for ReactOS is Windows XP NDIS 5.1, but is it supposed to be compatible with Windows 2000 NDIS 5.0 or NT 4 drivers? Have a couple of really old cards that don't have NDIS 5.1 drivers. Yes, older drivers should work just fine, since the NDIS API is backward...

Re: Request for testing on real hardware

I've done some more hardware fixes recently. I patched an NDIS bug that could cause certain network drivers (like the 3Com drivers) to crash when reading registry information. I've also fixed a bug with some PS/2 mice not initializing properly and implemented support for hot plugging PS/2 mice like ...

Re: Request for testing on real hardware

Now you've entered into territory I'm not familiar with, the sound stack. I'll try my best to see what I can do to fix them and/or bug the sound stack developer.

Re: Request for testing on real hardware

Now that networking is working great again Good to hear :D I tried a C-media 8738 based card and a VIA1723 based card but both BSODed at startup after installing the drivers. If you could provides the logs and/or file bugs that would be great. I can't guarantee that they'll get fixed since I'm not ...

Re: Request for testing on real hardware

I've fixed a couple more bugs related to running ROS on real hardware. In particular, the RTL8169, 3Com cards, and some other NICs should now work, but testing would be appreciated. Grab the latest trunk build and give it a shot.

Re: Request for testing on real hardware

I've disabled the USB driver on the latest build (r54347) due to issues like breaking boot with certain systems and very few people having success with it on real hardware. This should fix the boot issue that SomeGuy had on his Biostar board with legacy USB enabled (please post if it doesn't). On an...

Re: Request for testing on real hardware

Looks like it dies right around the time the storage subsystem is brought up. The HAL's PCI device enumeration looks interesting though: 00:0f.0 IDE interface [0101]: VIA Technologies, Inc.
