Re: What about file access management?

Wow! cacls was added! But how can it work if ROS only supports FAT (with no permissions attributes) for now? Is it for future? On what FS will it work? The answer is simple: it doesn't. Hwever, it'll run on Windows, and once the required API (and proper file system support) is in place, it'll work ...

Re: I've been testing some stuff :)

Hi, I've been testing some programs on ReactOS. I used VMWare Workstation 5.5 and ReactOS 0.2.9 to do this There isn't much point in filing bugs on 0.2.9 now as the current SVN has moved on. You'd be better getting the latest builds from http://svn.reactos.org/iso I did that about five minutes ago :)

I've been testing some stuff :)

Hi, I've been testing some programs on ReactOS. I used VMWare Workstation 5.5 and ReactOS 0.2.9 to do this, so perhaps ReactOS will behave differently on QEMU or real hardware. -Dev-C++ 4.9.9.2 beta: When starting, the splash screen won't go away. crashes after 1st-Time configuration (1st.

Re: ever heard the phrase"cross that bridge when we com

2. ntfs is not the way to go. it's propriatary, not entirely documented, and way more of a patent issue than fat is, oy. i'm not against ntfs support or any other support it just isn't a solution to this problem. I believe that NTFS support is necessary sooner or to allow the users a soft transitio...

There is absolutely no reason to use HPFS. Unlike FAT and NTFS it can't be read or written by any Windows NT Version > 3.51, it doesn't support large Volumes and every Open Source Driver for HPFS i know of lacks write support. NTFS would be a much better choice, because it can be read by Windows, an...

Are you sure? Of course it is technically possible, but i think that the new Macintoshes are dongled with TPMs.

Currently, ReactOS has no market share at all. It wouldn't make sense for MS to sue the ReactOS project right now, because ReactOS is just no competition. Therefore i don't think that we have to worry too much about that. Anyway, the developers are working on fuller support for IFS Drivers, so that ...

There is no need for such an API, because it's there already (or in the making). There is an Interface for File System Drivers (IFS) and there is an Interface for Redirectos (Which allows to implement Network file system drivers such as SMB/CIFS or NFS). I told you this already in the german forum, ...

Hy, Matthias, das gute dabei ist, daß wenn man das in' System integriert, kann das ein sehr kleines teil sein, nicht grösser als sagen wir mal 1 MB Da ReactOS Open Source ist, könnte ein Fremdanbieter das genausogut entwickeln und in's System integrieren wie die Entwickler selber.

Es gibt Software für Windows, die NFS-Funktionen bereitstellt, z. B. NFS Maestro . Da ReactOS einmal vollständig Windows-kompatibel werden soll, wird auch diese Software irgendwann funktionieren. Ich kenne keine Open Source-NFS-Implementierung für Windows. Selbst wenn es eine gäbe, hielte ich es für...

Its, in the most simplified way to say it, an open-source solution which is almost like DirectX in purpose. The difference here is, its free and multi-platorm. As far as i know, the Windows version of SDL is only a wrapper around DirectX. Even if it weren't that way, it still wouldn't help us much ...
