Please check this out: https://code.google.com/p/reactos/

Those are different people than ReactOS Portable Systems Group. The guy in those threads (http://www.reactos.org/pipermail/ros-de ... 15906.html http://www.reactos.org/pipermail/ros-de ... 15969.html) are the leader of the project. You can help them to speed up this process.
The two last links don't work.

All three links work for me, the last two links take you to the ros-dev mailing list archive.
If they are still not working for you, then go to the ros-dev mailing list and look in January 2013. The thread was started by J. C. Jones and the thread title is " ReactOS On ARM/Raspberry Pi ".
Hope that helps.
Please keep the Windows classic (9x/2000) look and feel.
The layman's guides to - debugging - bug reporting - compiling - with some complementary scripts.
They may help you with a problem, so do have a look at them.

Nope, they work for me too now. I've noted before a certain instability in (some) parts of the website and related sites (some of the time).

I have just remembered that they were doing a server up-grade yesterday (Saturday 23rd Nov). This may have been the reason why, when you tried to follow the links, they were dead!

is Timo working the last few days to making the ARM3 portable (fixing the MM to be portable for ARM ?!) or am i wrong...

one example:
"- Use MI_IS_MAPPED_PTE instead of unportable bit fiddling
- Use MiDecrementPageTableReferences instead of manually messing with MmWorkingSetList, which is not portable
- Make MmGetPhysicalAddress portable"

so he is making the functions portable in order to port it to ARM easier ?

if you look at the problems:

it's exactly it

ARM3 stands for Another Rewrite of the Memory Manager Module(?).
It has nothing to do with arm Plattform.

Timo's focus on portability has always been with x64 in mind.

I have four Raspberry Pi's with SD 32 GB cards just laying around in my lab, still in the box.... So using Linux/Fedora/Slackware, how does one go about building ReactOS for ARM? Where to download tools, etc? How to load the SD cards? Just a basic how to for ReactOS developers.....
I'd love to help you here, but I didn't have success with compiling RosBE-2.1 on my ArchLinux machine as my packages are too new for compiling binutils... (which have various errors when generating the documentation which are fixed in newer versions of binutils)

While I don't yet know how to setup an ARM build for RosBE-2.1 Unix it seems however that some ARM related cmake files are missing (they weren't converted from rbuild it seems). Most notably this is reactos/boot/armlib. Additionally I don't even know in how far the ARM addon for RosBE-2.1 Windows would be working as I don't know the state of ARM support inside the cmake files in general...

Question remains: how actively are people still working on this ROS arm port?

Okay, like everything else, when I get to it, I'll hack a RosBE_ARM, don't hold your breath....

RosBE-ARM is rely on CeGCC, which stopped at GCC 4.4.0 and there is no clue that MinGW-ARM will be released any time soon or later. Your best choice for now is to use VS 2012(we have some problems with 2013).
