Re: Who posted ReactOS 0.3.5 to Sourceforge?

Having tried 0.3.5 with both VMWare and QEMU, I get either system freezes, reboots or BSODs when attempting to Download! Firefox 2. The progress bar gets between 20-50% of the way and then Something Goes Wrong.

Anyone else have this, or is it just me?

Re: Hi there. I am new here. need some info to catch me up...

So you dont think Beta will be out this year? I think it will not be out th ese year s . Well, ReactOS has been in 0.3.x for the last 12 months or so. I'm guessing that, with a little luck, 0.4.x will happen sometime in early 2009, with version 0.5.x (the first beta version) being reached sometime ...

Re: Help with installation

I downloaded the latest CD install and Life CD of ReactOS The latest stable version (0.3.4) or the latest SVN build ? 0.3.4 is pretty old now - the SVN builds are more up to date. Or you could wait for 0.3.5, which should be avalable in the next few days. Right now, though (SVN-34189), it looks lik...

Re: **Excellent** progress!

I also think that the devs are a pretty cool bunch. Therefore I am stating it in this post.

Well done, devs, looking forward to 0.3.5.

See this thread.

Although I think that the issues with Firefox 3.0 are caused by the switch to a fully Cairo-based rendering system - the actual Gecko 1.9 layout engine should be fine.

Re: 3D Desktop

How to get files into ReactOS (and browse the Internet) if you are running ReactOS inside QEMU: Burn the Firefox 1.5 or 2.0 installer (not 3.0 - ReactOS can't render it properly yet) to an .ISO disc image file (you can use Infrarecorder to do this). When you run QEMU, add the commandline option: -c...

Re: ReactOS Shdocvw.dll is allowing GeoShell to run on Vista.

I'm guessing that this is you . I tried installing Geoshell on ReactOS SVN (build 34145-rel) via QEMU 0.9 and QEMU itself froze (ie not just the emulated ReactOS) when I double-clicked the installer.exe file. VMWare was similar. I tried to run the installer.exe and the virtual ReactOS machine instan...

Re: error

Try installing a more recent trunk build and see if the problem still occurs, since 0.3.4 is pretty old now - or you could wait until 0.3.5, which should be out sometime in the next few days.

Re: Does the internet work?

I cant figure out how to get the internet to come up If you mean "where is Internet Explorer/Firefox," you have to install such a program yourself - ReactOS doesn't have such a thing bundled with it (why not? See this post for a summary of the reasons). If you're using a milestone release such as 0...

Re: No bootable CD for installation

I found a neat little utility a while ago when I was trying to install ReactOS on an old tower which could not boot from CD. It booted from a floppy disk and presented the user with a list of available drives, so you could boot from the floppy drive and then continue on with the CD drive. Unfortunat...

Re: Suggestions for default programs in ROS

My only complaint is that you need a generic ReactOS web browser (with others optional), kind of like MS IE This has been discussed for a long time, and the result is: "ReactOS will not ship with any web browser." As for why, search the forum for any thread with the word "Firefox" in it .
