Re: Doesn't get further than the language choice page...

There are some ways to workaround the issue, one of them is pass the 1st stage in a VM connected to your physical hard drive, so, after closing the VM you can reboot and start ReactOS directly on the 2nd stage, where are more possibilities your keyboard would be working. This can be performed from ...

Re: Dialogs quality-of-life

Cosmonauta, (I guess you speak spanish as me :D ) feel you free to make your work (if you have code skills, or if you are a designer, show it graphically) and maybe some other people would be interested on it, and who knows, it can be merged at least on a branch or an optional feature.

Re: Doesn't get further than the language choice page...

Thanks Julcar for answering so fast! My keyboard is indeed plugged in with a USB-cable. What do you mean by assertion? My native language is Dutch and when I looked it up, the meaning would be something like "statement", nothing I can refer to concerning computers... Is there a way around the USB-t...

Re: Doesn't get further than the language choice page...

At a quick review I can give you two possible reasons:

1) Your keyboard is USB and isn't recognized by ReactOS
2) You are triggering an assertion

If you are using a PS/2 keyboard then it is the assertion

Re: How to disable the entire USB stack?

Today I had a time to work on this, and got it!

Re: RosBE doesn't work on Debian

maybe zlib is installed but not in the paths where RosBE is searching, what you can do is a

Code: Select all

sudo find / | grep zlib
to see where is your zlib located, and then symlink it to the RosBE's desired path

Re: Trying the self compile, but takes forever

Also note XP has SMP... and ReactOS doesn't so you get no benefit from multiple cores (even if the build process is single threaded it would still be faster on an SMP machine). That was a question I'd like to do on another thread, why RoS does not support more than 1 core? Why? Simply because NO co...

I'm sorry if this is covered here somewhere, I just couldn't find a proper explanation. Where/how do I submit a new translation? My Afrikaans translation is complete for most (80-99%) of the system modules and for some of the applications (20-40%), so it is usable, and I would love it if people cou...

Re: Install via Virtualbox

Use QEMU instead of Vbox, I've installed reactos in my laptop from a QEMU vm running over linux, is easy, you just need to have a proper bootloader in your harddisk first, I would recommend Grub4Dos
