Re: Compiling the USETUP module standalone

Oh, I thought ninja would not let you building it. That's good. The thing is, the actual code change I want to do is visual related and I must look at the said visual changes. The ninja will just build usetup as in a executable form and I don't know what should I do with it. Maybe if I copy usetup.e...

Compiling the USETUP module standalone

Is it possible to compile the USETUP module without having to build the whole ReactOS source code? For example, I want to make code changes in the text-mode setup and it'd be a pain building ReactOS for every code edit I do.

Re: GitHub Replacement Plan?

I was mild surprised by the fact that Microsoft acquired GitHub. But, frankly speaking, I really don't care. To people worrying about this scenario, keep in mind it took for ReactOS Team considerable time and effort to migrate the project from SVN to GitHub. Moving to another storage repository is, ...

Re: .NET ?

Hi there and welcome to the ReactOS Community & Forums! ReactOS' main core system is based upon the recreation of the NT 5.2 kernel (as used in Windows XP/Server 2003). Applications and software that require NT 6.x (Windows Vista/7/8/8.1/10) kernel version won't work for systems under NT 5.x previou...

That only applies to general/application updates that don't require a restart. For kernel updates you must reboot your computer in order to take effect.

Re: Windows update

Windows Update, by its core design, it is a very sophisticated component which means it is also very complex. Windows Update uses Component-Based Servicing which has to work tremendously to determine the files, components and the dependencies as well as allowing you to uninstall certain updates with...

Re: Initial Install Testing System Halt

One of the builds from https://sourceforge.net/projects/reactos/files/ReactOS/0.4.8-CLT2018/ might help. They are Vgal's USB Builds. The OP used a Live CD to boot ReactOS into his PC assuming the PC in question does have a CD-ROM reader. No need to suggest him trying Vgal's builds, unless he wants ...

Re: How does the BSoD actually work?

Thank you Hermes and Thomas, very informative and good answers. One more question. From what I see, KeBugCheck() and KeBugCheckEx() are the same, the only difference being KeBugCheckEx() supplies additional information (returning four parameters than just the bug-check code). Is KeBugCheckEx() a chi...

How does the BSoD actually work?

This question popped my mind for several months. As we know, a Blue Screen of Death (BSoD, or bug-check -- technically speaking) occurs when an illegal operation has been detected within the kernel mode side to prevent further data corruption. Whether it is a driver fault, accessing an invalid non-p...

Re: VGAL Liveusb no display

Edit: The system hangs on SWENUM.SYS This indicates the ReactOS enters on debugger break point on that driver system file. However, to get more result of your problem, debugging information is needed for the developers. Just run ReactOS on total verbosity mode (Screen) and wait until it breaks on t...

Re: Reactos live is immediatelly crashing

A backtrace of the BSoD (bugcheck) you were encountering would help. To do so, you must firstly boot ReactOS as Screen (which enables total debug verbosity) and when it breaks into debugger prompt type "bt" (without quotes!). The debug trace is important for the developers (mainly for Vadim Galyant ...

Re: Programming languages

Lua is the programming language that I mostly use it for developing scripts for a top-down shooter game. It's fairly easy to use and never had grudges while using that language. Furthermore, I also rarely code in C just for the sake of playing with it.

Re: Please redesign ReactOS release model to rolling release

And what difference will be if ReactOS changes its versioning/releasing model to rolling release? I guess barely none.
