MSHTML bug during Installation has been fixed

Post by vicmarcal »

Good news!
Accordingly to ReactOS Twitter:
reactos @reactos
MSHTML-2nd Stage bug has been fixed! Please retest with 55631: goo.gl/IcqBX Feedback is appreciated! goo.gl/bJ9vW
Yesterday Zefklop (jgardou) tested a new patch in Patchbot which seems to fix the MSHTML bug. Patchbot was suffering this issue too, and it runs now smoothly. Also other testers are reporting the bug as fixed.

For those testers who are experiencing this issue, could you test again?
Thanks a lot!

I tested with 55631-dbg and it worked!!! \o/

I encountered an issue, I don't know if it's related.

I'm at a pc where downloading binary files is blocked, so you get a 403 Error.
When I got asked to download the gecko package and clicked download all windows disappeared and nothing more happened.
When I chose cancel everything worked fine.
I don't know if it's related to mm or to setup.

Hmm...i think it is more related to the 403 error. Maybe we are not managing correctly the situation when there is no communication done and hence it "waits forever".
Anyway, please retry several times to check if it is a bug or a bug-happening-some-times.
Nice to know it works!!

Indeed. As vic said, please test this, so this bug can be closed.

For those who also compile the test suite, please also run "ntdll_apitest NtAllocateVirtualMemory" from command line. (It's in c:\Reactos\bin). It should report no errors. Otherwise, please let us know.

Hmm....tried 55631, now it's hanging on the line PCIIDE.SYS. It never hung before there.
Here is the log. Something with ACPI... I can set an IRQ. 9, 10 or 11, but it doesn't run with none of them.

Can sb help, please ?

Just tried 55632 and it works fine for me, I also get the Wine Gecko download window which I didn't get on the hack fixed release version. Something else I noticed is that Vbox seamless cursor mode is now working again, this was previously missing in 3.14 release.

Maybe it is a regression not related with mshtml but another one?

Dunno if this is acievable, but worths a try, Could you pick a revision old enough that presents the MSHTML bug, apply this patch, and test the ISO? I am almost sure you won't have any problems with PCIIDE.sys. This way we can confirm if the patch is or is not the responsible of your hang.
Thanks

ROS build 55645 on VBox 4.1.8 has trouble. When it is installing drivers during phase 2 setup, it took 3 or 5 minutes to get past that screen (used to take about half a second or less). When it finally started up, it didn't recognize the mouse at all. At least, that's my assumption. When I mouse over VBox, the mouse disappears entirely. WIn7 appropriately tracks its location, but it just has no cursor over VBox and ROS doesn't "capture" it either. This has the frustrating effect of rendering rapps unusable (there's no way to navigate it with keyboard only). It's also not playing nice with Guest Additions yet, so no Shared Folders are possible.

If your "used to take about half a second or less" was a long time ago than it's ok : pnp manager works much longer now because it works better ;)

About PCIIDE.SYS: this could be related to USB. Please disable/enable USB in VM and try again.

Disabled USB Support --->still hangs with PCIIDE.SYS

I wanna patch an old working release, but sorry, i don't know where to get the patch.
Could sb please provide a link ?

I hope i don't need to compile whole ROS, i hope it's an patch.exe that i can apply on windows.

r54804 has no PCIIDE.SYS hang, and runs until mshtml-bug

Re: MSHTML bug during Installation has been fixed

M comes before P, so isn't it possible that you never saw the PCIIDE.SYS hang because you got stuck at MSHTML.DLL? Is the hang in the first or second stage?

In my opinion:
-He had ReactOS perfectly working until rX
-Then MSHTML bug striked him in rY
-During MSTHML brokeness a new regression was introduced in rZ(but not noticed as PCI hang comes after MSHTML)
-Now we have fixed MSTHML so he is experiencing the PCI hang.

There are 2 ways.

"The FAST but not really sure RIGHT way"
1)Here you can find the ntoskrnl patched. Download it: http://www.4shared.com/file/n4WYXjCl/ntoskrnl.html
2)Now, open the ISO which was failing for you 200 revisions or so ago.Replace the ntoskrnl with this patched one. Save the ISO.
3)Install ReactOS, cross your fingers and check if you are able to install perfectly or if you hit PCIIDE.SYS. Follow any of these options:

In case you hit PCIIDE.SYS:
-Download and older revision and patch it again.(try with the first one that stopped working for you because the MSHTML bug)
-----------If with an older revision you are able to install ReactOS perfectly, then you will need to find in which revision PCIIDE.sys bug appears
-----------If wih an older revision you are not able to install ReactOS because the PCIIDE.sys bug, then try this patched ntoskrnl in a working ISO for you. Maybe the patch is the cause of the PCIIDE bug?

In case you didn't hit PCIIDE.sys:
-Congrats you found a revision that doesnt suffer from PCIIDE bug.
-You have now a range [patched non-buggy PCIIDE, patched buggy PCIIDE]. Perform a regression testing, patching all the ISOs needed.

In case you didn't even reach PCIIDE.sys neither MSHTML.dll:
-This ntoskrnl crazyness(using a different kernel ) seems to not work.
- You will have to download the sources, and patch it. But let's try first the patching way first ;)
