Re: My future goal of using ReactOS

I have planned to use ReactOS by 2023-2025, somewhat between these years when this OS starts to mature in terms of stability or probably even earlier. I have tested ReactOS on an old computer rig and it barely stays stable although bug-checks don't seem to happen frequently which is a good sign over...

Re: Reiser4 FS in React0S

The good old man says - easier said than done . We all want ReactOS to succeed on every side, let it be applications, file systems, drivers, and so forth. But judging the current development base and its resources our expectations are only dreams, period. When there is a developer with enough knowle...

Re: GitLab mirror

Could this fake repo be considered as an identity supplantation of ReactOS project? The thing is, the guy can't simply clone a repository of something and then build a mirror for it without the approval consent of the responsible of the said repository. This goes the same for ReactOS. If something ...

Re: Must ReactOS fear a Microsoft change to NTFS?

NTFS is now feature-complete. No changes has been made since Windows 2000 era, NTFS version 3. If I am not mistaken, no changes have been made since XP era (and not 2000) with the last version being v3.1 . @middings: If Microsoft decides to change the way NTFS operates that would definitely screw t...

Re: Compiling the USETUP module standalone

Oh, I thought ninja would not let you building it. That's good. The thing is, the actual code change I want to do is visual related and I must look at the said visual changes. The ninja will just build usetup as in a executable form and I don't know what should I do with it. Maybe if I copy usetup.e...

Compiling the USETUP module standalone

Is it possible to compile the USETUP module without having to build the whole ReactOS source code? For example, I want to make code changes in the text-mode setup and it'd be a pain building ReactOS for every code edit I do.

Re: GitHub Replacement Plan?

I was mild surprised by the fact that Microsoft acquired GitHub. But, frankly speaking, I really don't care. To people worrying about this scenario, keep in mind it took for ReactOS Team considerable time and effort to migrate the project from SVN to GitHub. Moving to another storage repository is, ...

Re: .NET ?

Hi there and welcome to the ReactOS Community & Forums! ReactOS' main core system is based upon the recreation of the NT 5.2 kernel (as used in Windows XP/Server 2003). Applications and software that require NT 6.x (Windows Vista/7/8/8.1/10) kernel version won't work for systems under NT 5.x previou...

That only applies to general/application updates that don't require a restart. For kernel updates you must reboot your computer in order to take effect.

Re: Windows update

Windows Update, by its core design, it is a very sophisticated component which means it is also very complex. Windows Update uses Component-Based Servicing which has to work tremendously to determine the files, components and the dependencies as well as allowing you to uninstall certain updates with...

Re: Initial Install Testing System Halt

One of the builds from https://sourceforge.net/projects/reactos/files/ReactOS/0.4.8-CLT2018/ might help. They are Vgal's USB Builds. The OP used a Live CD to boot ReactOS into his PC assuming the PC in question does have a CD-ROM reader. No need to suggest him trying Vgal's builds, unless he wants ...

Re: How does the BSoD actually work?

Thank you Hermes and Thomas, very informative and good answers. One more question. From what I see, KeBugCheck() and KeBugCheckEx() are the same, the only difference being KeBugCheckEx() supplies additional information (returning four parameters than just the bug-check code). Is KeBugCheckEx() a chi...

How does the BSoD actually work?

This question popped my mind for several months. As we know, a Blue Screen of Death (BSoD, or bug-check -- technically speaking) occurs when an illegal operation has been detected within the kernel mode side to prevent further data corruption. Whether it is a driver fault, accessing an invalid non-p...
