Re: Potential problem with 0.3.15 on real hw

As far as I concerned, any release after 0.3.14 will failed on reboot after you install any audio driver. It was never fixed since then. I thought developers was purposely disable the audio hardware access between releases. The failure always show something else, but each time it's failed on reboot ...

Re: ReactOS on a very small hard drive

Is there any way that I could install ROS on a hard drive smaller than 400 MB, or copy the disk after installation to a hard drive smaller than 400 MB and still have it be bootable? 1. Install the ROS 0.3.14 Release into 1GB VirtualHD build for QEMU release. Set the installation display to 640x480x...

Re: 0.3.15?

I've tested many prebuild ISO's since 0.3.14 release. I saw a lots of progress lately and improvements comes and go. While some old bugs returned out of the blue. These pattern repeated after ROS codes synced from Wine's. It seem Wine's codes holding back ROS progress back and forth. I dunno what to...

Re: Minimal System setup

Hello, I'm an experimented Windows developper (especialy under Delphi), and I'd like to play with ReactOS to build a minimal WinPE execution environment. Is it possible to have a text mode kernel to execute console applications like Delphi's DCC32.exe command line compiler OR to have a minimal GUI ...

Re: Did YOU SEE THIS VIDEO

At the point after he delete all the files from HDD, I wish there were an internal command in CMD screen called RAM2BOOT which is saving what is left in the RAM to a set of Boot and system files. So, the next time he reboot the same HDD, it will load the same GUI state. Walla! you got minimal system...

Re: Has ReactOS tracking the visible window order?

It was reported in CORE-106 since 2010.

Possibly, the other focus issues were connected and still unresolved too. So, this discussion just to find a possible logic suggestions could be applied into a probable solution. Others, may have different view about the windows focus and the logic behind it.

Re: Linux that boots ReactOS inside a VM

Could the same thing being made using FreeDOS + HXDOS + QEMU?

By booting the FreeDOS from RamDisk, I think the ReactOS in the VM will be blazing fast too.

It give you a bit of taste of Win9x/Me for the ReactOS,

Re: [IDEA] Integrate MPlayerGUI into ReactOS MP

One way or another, ReactOS has to implement it's own Media Player frameworks that using VfW codecs and DirectShow filters. Mplayer and MPC-HC only as good references as for writing an alternative media codecs and filters. But the best reference to the creation of ROS Media Player is the VirtualDub ...

Re: BootLogo and VBE Widescreen in Virtual PC?

While they successfully booting on QEMU, the BootLogo animation seem being broken unnecessarily. Why you had to fix things that didn't broken before? Thanks for BootLogo fix in SVN-57860. Yet BootCD still failed to load in VPC2007. Hopefully it will restore the boot up in VPC like the 0.3.14 releas...

Re: Suggestion: Fixing ROS Explorer & Resize bug

I don't mind the Explorer still using the same Shell engine since it first created. I just hope the Treeview and Listview should be fixed with a workaround reducing the drawing tasks similar to Regedit. The current Explorer displaying Treeview and Listview were likely made for Win9x redraw every lin...

Re: What's wrong with unix tradition

Most developers nowadays reluctant to design their software using a Flowchart. That is why a lots of weakness couldn't be eliminated in early phase of the development. Most 'research' the do for usability is based on a self centered need and type. Make it and forget. Hardly to trace the blueprint of...

1. ROS Explorer: a. Problem - Delay in showing Treeview (Drive and Folder) and Listview (Files and Folders) section. b. Solution - Rewrite ROS Explorer using Regedit codes and design concept and rules. Then improve it from there. Start with a simple single form as the Regedit application and then im...

Using VGA 4bit resolution, it works but slowing down the mouse responses. Seem like there is missing 16 colors icons in lower resolution. But menu and program loading is fast like it suppose to. The main culprit slowing ROS down is the Explorer application that handle desktop and file manager. There...
