Re: Blog: Dislocated localizations

Yeah... some people have experimented with Git around reactos, too. Some of us toyed around with using Git-svn, so that we could use a git local copy while still using "git svn dcommit" to send things to svn, but last I heard there are some issues with that workflow, due to differences in how git an...

You always have to cd host-tools\ and do "ninja" there before trying to build reactos\

Re: Blog: Patching Patches and Testing Tests

The folder has been rename, you will want to run configure again and do a full build. you may even need to delete the old build output folder.

EDIT: I forgot to change a file, try again. ;P

Re: Blog: Translatable emptyness and Long-winded Shortcuts

Seriously, I'd like to know why he can't get the branch to boot, and whether it is something David did, or some regression in the trunk. There is a regression in Trunk (not just the branch) that prevents MSVC builds from booting past the second stage setup. I did manage to boot using the mingw-gcc ...

Re: Blog: Post-Incrementing the C

I guess programing just got a lot more convenient, and the shell only got a little slower. It's a common misconception that using C++ automatically makes things slower than the equivalent code in C. There is a small overhead in the code, yes, but most of it is due to misusing virtual functions (ind...

Re: Blog: Circular leaks

I've not been paying close attention so sorry if this is wrong understanding, why not simply have something like this: [...] Because the point is to do it like windows, which means following the specifications of the interfaces. We can't just add methods to them, so we need to know which is the pla...

Re: Blog: View Popups and Unreliable Operations

It won't matter which flags you set. In order to see OUR file browser window instead of windows' own, you need some extra stuff: First: you need filebrowser.exe, browseui.dll, and rshell.dll from the build folder. Second: filebrowser.exe.regfree.manifest and browseui.sxs.manifest from the reactos/ba...

Re: Blog: View Popups and Unreliable Operations

You can't run explorer-new directly in Windows Vista or newer, it has to be Windows 2003. The alternative is to remove some code, or run filebrowser.exe instead.

Yeah we may want something open from there that tells the user about the GPL and its conditions.

Re: Blog: View Popups and Unreliable Operations

Is it possible the Back and Forward arrow buttons could turn gray or something else instead of turning into a gray block such as the arrows turn gray? If you were to run our explorer-new in windows, you'd see it works there. The problem is in our comctl32 (which comes straight from WINE), so I can'...

Re: Blog: Shared memory messages

Glad you got a good grade on your project! Thanks! Also happy that it looks like you're getting to a state where the end is in sight - although those final yards of programming including finishing up, running/improving test suites, fixes, rinse, repeat can take a long time ;) Yes, it can. at least ...

Re: Blog: Shared memory messages

I read that and looked up 1037 and 1035 in this page at Geoff Chappell's web site. It is over my head. Yet I enjoyed reading this week's report. I don't believe this has anything to do with the messages I mentioned. Either way, after some more investigation, the message 1037 is used in relation wit...

I'd just suggest you go with: http://code.reactos.org/changelog/~br=s ... ts/reactos

You can even get an RSS link from there: http://code.reactos.org/changelog/~br%3 ... 0&RSS=true

I have had the trunk one in my rss aggregator for ages ;P.
