Re: ReactOS for Beagleboard

I have seen this hardware at a Linux event. The 1st problem is that ReactOS doesn't have usbhid.sys an usbstor.sys. those files are required for input from USB and access to USB HDD'S. 2nd problem :ReactOS is not very well suited for flash volumes. 3rd problem the GUI kernel subsystem(win32k.sys) is...

Re: Small OS

Most ReactOS .exe files contain text in a lot of languages.
3 Years ago I shrinked ReactOS further by removing unused language strings via Resource Hacker
and rerendered icons in 16 colours with an graphics tool.

Re: Any custom or fork Builds of ReactOS

Console apps could be ported sometimes,because ReactOS contains a version of the standard C library. ncurses or X11 apps are difficult,but a rdesktop client was ported in Summer of Code 2006. Some time ago I tested gcc on Win ME by porting the small "Wumpus" hunt game. There are tips on the net how ...

Re: PPC thread

I never had seen Windows sourcecode(I don't work at Microsoft!) or said that. Also Windows does not run on PPC since NT 4.0 and that didn't work on Power Macintosh but on IBM RS6000. I looked into Linux,FreeBSD,NetBSD,MINIX3 sources and the ReactOS PPC code. I have hardware to test,but did not get R...

Re: mc (Midnight Commander) shold add to Download!

There is a mc for Windows on the net,add it to Download! list for 0.3.7,please. mc was really useful for me on Linux and FreeBSD, but the version in RosApps was old and a special port to ReactOS. None of the devs worked on it and it was untranslated, so they deleted it in a RosApps cleanup. the GNOM...

Re: Any custom or fork Builds of ReactOS

There is a kernel reconfiguration possible but this is not advanced like in Linux or BSD. In ReactOS it is much more difficult to tweak the kernel,but not impossible. The kernel is in 4 files [ntoskrnl.exe,hal.dll,ntdll.dll,win32k.sys] win32k is a needed part of the kernel altough it contains the de...

Re: Any custom or fork Builds of ReactOS

It is possible to build ReactOS optimized for your CPU,for code size or speed. You need to add command line options to the .rbuild files. What to add can you read in the gcc manual -> gcc.gnu.org. You could test compiling ReactOS with gcc 4.3.2 and binutils 2.18. For getting full trunk source you ne...

strdup() question

WINE removed strdup() calls and replaced them with HeapAlloc().
In my ReactOS source I see plenty much of strdup occurences.
What's the better coding way?

Re: Mouse will not work when booted to Reactos.

USB will stay a long time broken(my opinion)
On the mac there is a OpenFirmware device for keyboard called sometimes "psuedo-hid"(apples typo)
if the mac has USB keyboard you dont need a USB driver for it,but you cant plug a USB stick into the keyboard.

Re: PPC thread

Hi jaix and the others, ReactOS on PPC Macs is a great task because on this arch there are not much free operating systems available. (Linux,NetBSD,FreeBSD,OpenBSD...can't recall more) The input presents a problem because of non-working USB in ReactOS, but luckily I have got a G3 with ADB,USB and FW...
