Re: ReactOS on an Ext2/3 partition (instead of NTFS)

I'm ressurecting this thread to put in a note that the NoCC reimplementation is now complete enough to boot to gui on an ext2 partition, loading freeldr from grub. I've synced my git repo into the arty-newcc branch (reviving it) and I invite those interested to help work on it. The main limitation s...

Re: Question on paging

I can answer your question at least about startup_pagedirectory. Since the PDE and PTE format is similar, you can use that to map a page table at the same address in phyiscal and logical spaces. We use startup_pagedirectory to be able to modify the page table in place in early kernel startup.

Re: PPC thread

It doesn't have much driver support yet, and doesn't get far enough to need it. Please feel free to poke around and work on whatever interests you.

Re: PPC thread

I've mainly stopped working on it for the moment, and powerpc has deviated significantly from the current sources, but the basic part of getting started is using powerpc reactos build environment from the tree (svn://svn.reactos.org/reactos/trunk/tools/RosBE/RosBE-PPC). Get binutils-2.16.1 and gcc-4...

Hmm do you build your own?

If so, then add

TcpipBugCheck( *Result );

after line 231 of lib/drivers/ip/network/interface.c

And see if you get an interesting bugcheck from doing ipconfig

If not, I'll try and group some other tests and post a replacement tcpip.sys

What's needed for cygwin and how you can help

cygwin exercises a big lot of the win32 api and has a lot of 'personality' switches internally that turn on use of various options. ReactOS detects as 2000 last i checked, so its coverage is fairly wide. Any specific problem with something it touches can make it fail, and since cygwin has an identic...

Does screenshot uploading work on reactos fansite?

I tried it a few times, but I think I only managed to upload a screenshot once. It used to tell me things like 'your image was type image/jpeg but only jpeg or png images are supported.' I think I complained once but after that it worked for a short time and broke again.

Heh ok you wanted a screenshot... Well here it is for what it's worth. I decided to make one because I just got it to copy freeldr to the right location. The four words at the end are the first four instructions from freeldr. The addresses following boot are the begin and end of the freeldr payload ...

heh ya that's going to take a while

Hmm well there's really nothing to screenshot at the moment. The hello boot program prints 'hi' in openfirmware and then exits.

Of course, screenshots of gcc patches are quite exciting too.

Second architecture

I'm working on PPC as a second architecture. This will get us powermac and pegasos machines quickly, probably followed by the Xbox 2 and 3rd gen amiga hardware later on. It's mostly for fun though. What I have now is: - The hello world boot program I can run on pearpc and my 7300 mac. - Some mostly ...

It will have to wait a bit but should work eventually

We don't have tdi.sys as it should be, which is probably needed by the shaper. Any info or help that can be given dislodging tdi.c from afd into tdi.sys in the correct form will go a long way, though. Eventually, firewalls, shapers, vpn systems and extra protocols will work, as kernel support for th...
