Re: ReactOS can't boot

I have a 2 year old computer that I cannot install Reactos on.

naums
I would suggest trying it on an older computer if you have one.

I think the problem is with the newer hard drives.

Revision 45630 Open Office 3.1

Revision 45630 Open Office 3.1 installs and runs as far as the last registration window, after that the hard drive runs as if trying to load OOO, then it freezes (including the mouse) before anything else displays. Below is part of the debug log taken when trying to run OOO. I can post the full log ...

Revision 45630 floppy drive

Revision 45630 The floppy drive does not show up in the explorer window or in any gui programme. I can access the floppy from the command window. To access the floppy in other gui programmes, you have to type the path to the drive (A:\). Is there a bug or something with the listing of the contents, ...

Re: r45602 install fails with at a blue screen

I have now tested 45598 and it is just the same. On Saturday I downloaded a revision which I think was 45590 and that is just the same. Having done some more testing, I have now noticed that when the screen is blank the harddrive light comes on three times, the first time it is on for about 2 second...

Re: Is arwinss actually in the truck builds now?

arwinss revision 45526 My experience with arwinss using it in real hardware is: If I use the upgrade route to install it over an earlier, none arwinss version, I can boot to the desktop. The screen resolution that I use is 1024x768 (16 bit colour), but the visible desktop looks like 800x600, which i...

rev45368 seems to have regressed

I have been testing rev 45368, a trunk build from yesterday and I am finding that I am getting alot more instances of lock-ups, compared with earlier revisions. Alot of these lock-ups seem to be associated with the mouse. If the mouse is moved when a window or menu is opening, then a lock-up may occ...

Re: Is arwinss actually in the truck builds now?

My experiences are: A fresh install (formatted drive) will produce the same results as in Pesho's first post. Upgrading to an already install version is the same as in Sun's virtual machine. The desktop is only partially displayed, but I was just able to try K-Meleon to see if the file, view, etc, m...

Re: Is arwinss actually in the truck builds now?

Sorry, I need more instructions.
Where do I go and is it built on the reactos server.
I have very little experience in compiling.

Thanks for all the help.

Is arwinss actually in the truck builds now?

Is arwinss actually in the truck builds now?
Because I downloaded rev 45183 yesterday and I do not see any difference from a revision from last week.
I am looking forward to testing some apps in a build with arwinss in.

Re: PHP 5.1 seems to work ok in r45078

Unfortunately it does not yet work through a browser. The browser displays everything, tags and all. The way to test for a working php is to have a php file at C:\www called test.php containing <?php phpinfo; ?> then open a command window and navigated to the folder containing php.exe, then type: ph...
