Post by KenO »

Does ReactOS 0.3.13-REL have partial or full USB Support?

Seemingly only partial support for basic devices in legacy mode. For me, having it enabled on real hardware crashes the machine, and legacy mode malfunctions (erratic mouse, for instance). I remember I couldn't use Reactos at all for a couple of years when it came up with erratic mouse function before. My guess is that before that point, it wasn't detecting USB at all, and after that, it was detecting it and getting far enough in so it can crash. So my guess that it crashing is evidence that they have been working on it over the years, as ironic as it seems.

0.3.13 has buggy legacy USB support. Try the latest trunk builds instead, where problems with USB keyboards and mice should be fixed.

mjmartin had been working on writing the new USBEHCI driver in C in trunk but now he and janderwald are rewritting it in C++ in the usb-bringup branch. So this latest work isn't yet present in trunk.
