Re: Reactos participation and windows source leaked

Just saw PeyTy in mattermost and asked about it.
It may have been in poor taste, but according to PeyTy it was meant only as a joke:

Now can we stop with the crazy theories.

Re: Reactos participation and windows source leaked

Yes, and while you can push any commits you want, using whatever key you want, it won't show up as verified unless the commit was signed with the key that's registered to that user. It's a very well known bug/feature, and it's not as broken as you seem to think. github.blog/2016-04-05-gpg-signature-...

Re: Reactos participation and windows source leaked

The commit is marked as 'Verified', which means it was signed, but that doesn't necessarily mean that it was the GreenTea contributor that did this. See: http://www.jayhuang.org/blog/tag/impersonating/ Literally anyone could have forked ReactOS and made this commit. Someone is definitely trying to ...

Re: Reactos participation and windows source leaked

Given that recent spat with that kerneli... troll, I suspect this is the result. I don't know that this necessarily has anything to do with that, though I suppose it might. Given the manner in which that person deals with people on their forum, I wouldn't put it past them to try something like this...

Re: Third party criticism to ReactOS project

Realistically, the best way to handle something like this is to ignore the defamatory posts, and someone run some tests on their own using his tool, then make a bug report on JIRA about their findings. Possibly multiple, depending on how related/unrelated they seem to be. Then this person should try...

Re: Version / Changelog navigation templates order / verbiage unification

Thank you. Hopefully someone who has access to edit those templates will agree.
Also, I continued thinking about this, and I wonder if "Versions / Technical Changelogs / Community Changelogs" would be better. IDK.

Re: Building on WSL: How can I track down why "ninja: build stopped: subcommand failed." happened?

Thank you both. I tried running it after configuring with -DPCH , -DPCH=0 and -DPCH:BOOL=0 , and none of them appeared to make any difference. I also tried running ninja -v bootcd , and there was so much output that (knowing that it runs in parallel) I wasn't certain that I could tell which part of ...

Building on WSL: How can I track down why "ninja: build stopped: subcommand failed." happened?

I experimentally installed the Linux version of RosBE in Windows 10's "Windows Subsystem for Linux", and when I try to build ReactOS with it, I get the following error: ninja: build stopped: subcommand failed. How can I track down what exactly is failing, and why? Note: If I repeatedly run the build...

Re: Upload filters

That's crazy! When I read the thread title, I thought it was either a joke, or some paranoid theory, but it looks like some people actually want to enforce this kind of thing.

Definitely looks like a spam bot to me. Quoting a thread started by wildschwein in 2014:

Re: Periodic testing of ReactOS on real hardware.

Honestly, I think what would probably help ReactOS the most would be to figure out either a better automated method of gathering bug reports, or a better way to teach people to make good bug reports. If I remember correctly, there was some discussion a while back about making the BSOD display a QR c...

Re: Migration Windows XP/2003 Server -> ReactOS

XP/2003 can be installed on FAT too. This isn't the norm by any means (even PCs that were updated from 9x were usually converted to NTFS) but some, in particular ones where the user dual-booted XP & 9x on the same partition (yes that's possible) were left on FAT. Testing the migration path for these...

Correct, although this Unix Subsystem (POSIXSS ; Interix...) required program writers to "port" / recompile their code into the PE format that was nonetheless needed for these applications.
Ah, so they were more akin to cygwin than to wine or wsl.

Re: Migration Windows XP/2003 Server -> ReactOS

Yes, a live Windows XP or Server 2003 installation shouldn't be migrated to ReactOS yet, as ReactOS isn't ready for it, however it might not be a bad idea to discuss the requirements of the (future) migration process in order to iron out the details on how it would be accomplished. This would allow ...
