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...

Re: How to submit a translation?

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

Re: Trying the self compile, but takes forever

I leave it 8 hours (then I go to bed) and still the cmake.exe process was taking 100% of cpu and the process was incomplete, I think this could be improved in performance

Re: Real hardware 0.4.9

Haven't decided on the board i want to buy yet but they will probably have USB 2.0/3.0 being new devices i don't know if there is any way to trick React OS into believing they are 1.1, probably not? AFAIK Reactos reserves the serial port a.k.a COM1 for debugging tasks, so the serial mouse probably ...

you could better see if your mother boards uses usb 1.1, because the UHCI driver has some more stability than EHIC and OHCI

Re: Real hardware 0.4.9

PS/2 keyboards and mice are supposed to work out of the box, with usb the scenario changes because you would need to compile yourself with some patches available on the wiki to get some usb features working.

Re: Project Install ReactOS 4.9 on a ThinkPad T23 instead of WindowsXP

What is this 'screen' mode doing? The screen debug mode launch the debugger console on the background, you cannot see the debug logs unless you hit TAB+K on your keyboard, but after doing that you cannot get back to the system, it is useful when you are reproducing crashes as you can see the log be...

Trying the self compile, but takes forever

I am testing the self-compiling on real hardware, as my ReactOS installation has no networking connection, I cloned the git repo on linux, and saved the source in E:\ReactOS\SRC, and installed RosBE in E:\RosBE Running RosBE with E:\ReactOS\SRC as baseaddress, I execute the configure.cmd script, and...

Video of the installation with drivers setup, testing some system settings and programs like Firefox, Diablo II, Wordpad, MS Excel viewer etc. https://youtu.be/LfPtI7xlnKA So far feels like an older Linux, some drivers are working, some are not, and some apps work, but still in Alpha.

This part of the wiki says that USB sticks are supported but the other version says it isn't. USB Mass Storage is implemented in USBSTOR driver and is fully working. Tested in WinXP + USBEHCI + USBSTOR. Mass storage support requires bulk and control transfers, which are implemented in USBEHCI. http...
