Re: How to build for arm?

What version can be run on mobile / tablets? Every few weeks, someone arrives on the ReactOS website to ask if ReactOS can run on ARM. The answer given is "NO". After that, the person fades away into the cosmos, until...a few weeks later...another person arrives at the ReactOS website to ...

Re: ARM MMU Support For ReactOS

I am glad you found this. This makes it more clear where people are getting their thoughts. I would like to to state first, that what the text of the Boot Section says, is highly misleading. It implies that ARMv5 and ARMv4 cores have an MMU that is incompatible with ReactOS/Windows requirements, and...

Re: ARM MMU Support For ReactOS

The lack of an answer should tell you this: You need to find out yourself I am not being facetious when I say that this answers, by far , a lot more constructive than someone (not you) mumbling something about it not being possible because the CPU lacks atomic synchro primitives . Perhaps that shou...

Re: ARM MMU Support For ReactOS

Let us ask a simple, relevant question:

Is this CPU in the Raspberry Pi capable of running ReactOS, natively?

This a question that has a simple YES/NO answer.

What is the answer?

Re: ARM MMU Support For ReactOS

Windows CE is not an NT kernel. What it supports/needs has no relevance to what NT supports/needs These two OS's have different names, but the humans (you know, the hairy people who walk around on two legs)...some of the humans who developed the Windows NT kernel are the same humans who developed t...

Re: ARM MMU Support For ReactOS

PS: I think my injudicious talking actually changed this thread's main topic, so I apologize to everyone following this thread. So let's talk about something related. Someone said above that ARMv6's synchronous methods are not suitable for ReactOS, so what kind of synchronous methods is needed for ...

Re: ARM MMU Support For ReactOS

That is what I worried about. On the ARM platform, Microsoft decided not using Win32 API, instead they invented WinRT API. And now Microsoft do not show any interest on exposing Win32 API to the ARM platform. If we exposes Win32 API to ARM platform, that will generate binary incompatibility with Wi...

Re: ARM MMU Support For ReactOS

Question is, if we do not follow them, we should develop a custom mechanism to support desktop apps on ARM, that means we have to break the compatibility with Windows because Windows itself do not have such a mechanism on ARM( documented and official-support ), it only has the public WinRT API. Rea...

Re: ARM MMU Support For ReactOS

I will address some of your points: why Microsoft won't port Big Windows to cheap ARM SoCs could be realized easily Microsoft has already ported Big Windows to cheap ARM SoC's. If you remove the layer of fat that they added to get Windows RT, you will get Windows 8, and in particular, the Windows NT...

Re: ARM MMU Support For ReactOS

1. There are ARM CPUs which don't have a MMU Yeah, sure, like there are some Pentium processors that don't support SSE , etc. What surprised me in the claims about ARM was that Microsoft had been running a dual-level demand-paged OS on major ARM cores at least since 2000. Even in the early versions...

Re: ARM MMU Support For ReactOS

No developer has ever claimed that ARM does not have an MMU. I never said, "developer". I said fellow ReactOS'ers. Here is one email message from the ROS-dev list (author's removed - does not really matter): > Before you put too much hope on it, ReactOS needs a Memory Managing > Unit (bas...

ARM MMU Support For ReactOS

I had an enjoyable and lively discussion with some fellow ReactOSer's last night. During that discussion, the matter of whether ARM could support ReactOS was broached, yet again. There was also a couple of emails in the ROS-Dev mailing list about this topic. Some in the past have casually implied th...

Re: MIDL.EXE Barfs On PSDK .IDL files.

Problem solved.

I talked to Amine and Hermès and learned that WIDL.EXE is used instead of MIDL.EXE for all .IDL builds in ReactOS, giving that the .IDL syntax expected by each, diverged some time ago. In general, .IDL code in ReactOS will not be accepted by MIDL.EXE.
