Windows XP USB WDM driver template

Post by JPLR » Mon Mar 22, 2010 11:52 am

Hi,

This is probably another stupid idea from me but I wrote a Windows XP USB WDM driver template in the Wiki at:
http://www.reactos.org/wiki/USB
Normally what is needed now is to fill the switch/case with the correct codes that can be found in Linux source code as it was done in the unfinished Cromwell implementation.
Feel free to move it in a more suitable place and to amend it.

Have a nice day,

JPLR

May I ask why it was removed without any discussion?

I didn't remove it but imho there's nothing to discuss, implementing usb in ReactOS means a lot more than just fill in stubbed functions, but thanks for the try anyway. ;)

Thanks for the comment.
I didn't claimed anything, I used the word "template".
And adding USB support to Reactos as ordinary users expect it, is certainly a different thing than implementing a USB driver.
Anyway someone of the art should have recognized there is more in this template than some random code picked on Internet.

I don't know why Lone Rifle removed it, but I reverted his removal and demand a discussion before we remove it! Was there any reason at all?

ReactOS is still in alpha stage, meaning it is not feature-complete and is recommended only for evaluation and testing purposes.

The wiki is not the page for code copypasta. If you must, do it in your own personal page space, submit a patch, or request a branch. Also, if your idea is stupid, why do you expect it to be treated as if it's not a stupid idea?

In addition, your formatting is terrible and ruins the layout of the original USB wiki article, which I find callous and irresponsible.

OK, I will hand it to our USB Dev and ask him if we keep it or not. Anyway, removing without any comment is not very nice.

JPLR: np ;-)
