Re: Minimal System setup

Version 0.3.14-20120205-rUNKNOW (from ISO download) 20120205 == 5 February 2012, quite old indeed :D If you want to test ReactOS, please use our nightly build from there: http://www.reactos.org/getbuilds .

Re: Are learning to rewrite usetup.exe and blue.sys

[...] In my opinion, it would be a good idea to replace the text-mode setup by a gui-based one. We alredy have a simple gui-setup application in the source tree. This could be a good starting point for you. Translating the setup appication will then be as simple as translating any other application...

Re: Are learning to rewrite usetup.exe and blue.sys

If I recall correctly, setupdd.sys was used for the text-mode setup program only until Windows NT 4.0 . Starting Windows 2000 (and beyond), it doesn't use setupdd.sys . This file is used only for the recovery console. But these claims should be checked.

Re: Minimal System setup

Bonjour tothpaul ! We had (about 2-3 years ago) a console-only mode on ReactOS (which can be launched by adding /CONSOLE to the ReactOS boot options inside freeldr.ini) but curently this doesn't seem to work, perhaps because of an "interference" problem with win32k.sys (our GUI subsystem). Otherwise...

Because the philosophy is to have a minimum OS in the bootcd/livecd and it's up to the user to download what he/she wants.

Re: Download ReactOS Trunk Builds

And thus, on a xxx-dbg(win).iso image, you have the kernel debugger that you can see if you use debugging output (via serial port) when running ReactOS on a virtual machine.

RE: REVISION 55729 - INTRODUCE CRASH ON PURPOSE

When someone committed the patch, he purely restored what Windows does, namely, having a static buffer of 512 bytes for the hive name, and if its length appears to be > 512 chars, you fail miserably. If it does not cause a buffer overflow, maybe it is not worth considering. It looks more like a Win...

Re: What's wrong with unix tradition

Exadurating, my point is that Unix tradition promotes low self-respect (poor UI for yourself), neglect (making people type numerous commands), and tolerance to humiliation (for ex. "sudo" each time). There may be a lot of logical explanations why these things are better the way they are, but I woul...
