Hi meklort thanks for the tip but I still have no success. I tried make clean and now did a completely fresh checkout and the thing still doesn't boot on qemu. (However, I've just tried your latest build and it runs perfectly, so I guess the problem is not qemu) here's my setup: - SVN checkout 14618...

self-compiled builds don't boot in qemu

Hello

for some reason my self compiled builds don't boot in qemu anymore. I've just tried it with a fresh check out and had no success. The livecd as well as the bootcd hang while fading in the splash screen. Any idea what could be the problem?

BTW: I'm using qemu 0.6.1 for Windows (win2k)

since the problem (i've got it as well) is only at 640x480x8 maybe the default resolution should be set to 800x600x8 until the problem is solved. Or is there a reason why this would be a bad idea? I'm pretty sure that even my 486 had a graphics card that could handle such a resolution.

Hi! could someone tell me how I can change the resolution? Is it already possible to change the resolution of a running system? (if not that's no problem. I've got a working build environment) thanks! EDIT: I've just found the thread http://reactos.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=572 which solved my probl...

I've got a question which might be slightly off topic: If I want to include other software in the ReactOS-ISO, how would I do that? I have got a working build environment and would like the ISO to have an additional directory ("other software" or something like that) in which I could include softwar...

no you can't. They are still being sold. However there are some free games (and some demos) you can download from the scummvm website.

It may just be busy, but I let it "flush" for about an hour and nothing happened.

I'll try it again tomorrow (with another harddrive)

just tried what you suggested and it works perfectly. I succesfully created a clone of the German layout with the keys "A" and "F" switched. :D

once I've done the keyboard layout I'll of course write a "how-to".
