ReactOS Web Browser problems

Post by widgetman » Wed Feb 22, 2006 6:17 am

Here's my problem: I can't get any of the ReactOS web browser to work. At all. When I try to use the explorer (tried to access reactos.org) I get an exception:
Image

I launched ibrowser, and it wanted to Mozilla ActiveX component so I let it download and install that, then restarted and when now every time I launch ibrowser, it begins to start, shows the basic window without content and then it crashes without an error message. It would be nice to browse the web, so what can I do to fix this problem?

I am running ReactOS version 0.2.9 release, emulated under OS X (:wink:)

Thanks

0.2.9 has many bugs. You really need to use the latest SVN

I see...unfortunately, I am not in a situation where I can build the latest SVN code. Many of the tools needed to build reactos are for windows, and I am running a Mac with OS X. Is there an estimatation of when the next release will be? Is there any way for someone with an appropriate build environment to send me an install iso for the lastest version or something?

Those died out a while ago.

We hope to get the official nightly builds back up and running soon.

Is the SVN version bootable once installed again?

ROS works on your Mac, so you can compile ROS from within ROS!

Theoretically that would work, but I am only emulating ROS and it would most likely take days to compile. I wish I could compile it somehow from within OS X, and I could actually become a dev on this project (which I would be happy to do), but it looks like there are too many dependencies on windows apps and libraries (some are possible to compile from source, but only on an Intel Mac which I don't have). The big problems are MinGW, w32api, and NASM, the rest are already installed (gcc, make).

THe latest build I have on my site is from about a month ago, before the code audit.
