Re: Version / Changelog navigation templates order / verbiage unification

Thank you. Hopefully someone who has access to edit those templates will agree.
Also, I continued thinking about this, and I wonder if "Versions / Technical Changelogs / Community Changelogs" would be better. IDK.

Re: Building on WSL: How can I track down why "ninja: build stopped: subcommand failed." happened?

Thank you both. I tried running it after configuring with -DPCH , -DPCH=0 and -DPCH:BOOL=0 , and none of them appeared to make any difference. I also tried running ninja -v bootcd , and there was so much output that (knowing that it runs in parallel) I wasn't certain that I could tell which part of ...

Building on WSL: How can I track down why "ninja: build stopped: subcommand failed." happened?

I experimentally installed the Linux version of RosBE in Windows 10's "Windows Subsystem for Linux", and when I try to build ReactOS with it, I get the following error: ninja: build stopped: subcommand failed. How can I track down what exactly is failing, and why? Note: If I repeatedly run the build...

Re: Upload filters

That's crazy! When I read the thread title, I thought it was either a joke, or some paranoid theory, but it looks like some people actually want to enforce this kind of thing.

We have three templates for navigating the Version and/or Changelog pages: Template:Navigation Versions Template:Navigation Changelog Template:Navigation_Community_Changelog Each of these is a table with links to pages of it's respective type, and each includes a list of the three types at the top o...

Re: There is an offical testing laptop..

Definitely looks like a spam bot to me. Quoting a thread started by wildschwein in 2014:

Re: Periodic testing of ReactOS on real hardware.

Honestly, I think what would probably help ReactOS the most would be to figure out either a better automated method of gathering bug reports, or a better way to teach people to make good bug reports. If I remember correctly, there was some discussion a while back about making the BSOD display a QR c...

Re: Migration Windows XP/2003 Server -> ReactOS

XP/2003 can be installed on FAT too. This isn't the norm by any means (even PCs that were updated from 9x were usually converted to NTFS) but some, in particular ones where the user dual-booted XP & 9x on the same partition (yes that's possible) were left on FAT. Testing the migration path for these...

Correct, although this Unix Subsystem (POSIXSS ; Interix...) required program writers to "port" / recompile their code into the PE format that was nonetheless needed for these applications.
Ah, so they were more akin to cygwin than to wine or wsl.

Re: Migration Windows XP/2003 Server -> ReactOS

Yes, a live Windows XP or Server 2003 installation shouldn't be migrated to ReactOS yet, as ReactOS isn't ready for it, however it might not be a bad idea to discuss the requirements of the (future) migration process in order to iron out the details on how it would be accomplished. This would allow ...

Re: Enable-WindowsOptionalFeature -Online -FeatureName Microsoft-Windows-Subsystem-Linux

Just a couple of interesting anecdotes. "Bash on Windows" as they called it during the original announcement, a.k.a. WSL or Windows Subsystem for Linux, would more accurately be called a Linux Subsystem for Windows (as it's a subsystem for Windows that runs Linux software), but technically isn't Lin...

Re: Windows ntoskernel vulnerability

Out of curiosity, does ReactOS need a transaction manager for XP/2k3 compatibility but not have it yet? or is the transaction manager required for features only in NT6+? or is it that ReactOS' implementation doesn't/won't require a transaction manager?

Re: bypass sse2 intrsuction set

Emulation would be possible, but we don't do it yet, and nobody is working on implementing it. It's also not a Windows feature, which means: a) it's not a priority, b) we [would] have to find a way to make it configurable in case it causes app compat problems. I assume if this feature makes it to R...
