Re: Year 2038 problem

This isn't a "Year 2038" problem, it's a "Linux developers are dumb as bricks" problem, every other Unix hardened against this about a decade before Linux did, and of course Windows has always used 64-bit time. I love it when the world panics over Linux being garbage, you'd think they'd learn by no...

Re: Unofficial ReactOS Application Compatibility Database

They are probably aware of that. Otherwise, they would have deleted it. It has zero tests submitted so far, if any tests get submitted they'd probably get rejected by a maintainer for not being able to provide the correct wine version along with not accepting test data from anything beyond official...

Re: VirtualWin as base for virtual desktops

It's GPL licensed, so at the very least its possible it could be put into ROSapps.

Re: itunes, please

Now I'm curious if alternatives like copyTrans manager work in ROS, BRB.

edit: the installer can't connect to the internet, so unless there is an offline installer copyTrans has issues too.

Re: Unofficial ReactOS Application Compatibility Database

Wine database can be used. I have successfully registered ReactOS as a distribution in there. https://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?bIsQueue=false&bIsRejected=false&sClass=distribution&iId=1559&sAction=view&sTitle=View+Distribution We are not testing wine though. We have some wine code in Reac...

Re: How many of you still use Windows XP?

I've made myself a "service pack 4" slipstream of XP professional that includes all released updates, a few registry tweaks, and firefox. I use it in virtual machines often for when I need to run something that doesn't work in wine.

I wish ROS had a section of the site set up similarly to appdb.winehq.org. It makes it very easy to submit test data and keep everything organized and will scale much better than the wiki page (it'll also work for non game programs as well).

Re: EPIC WIN!

Not a complete success, but using the latest build from Oct 21 of this year I managed to install the driver of the TRENDnet TU2-ET100 ( https://www.trendnet.com/products/proddetail?prod=150_TU2-ET100 ) and link it to the hardware itself using device manager (device manager still can't find it automa...

Re: Has anyone tried to run andLinux on ReactOS?

I installed the latest minimal version of andlinux and the installer succeeds with errors (mentioned something about a network adaptor and the largest .vdi file was too large though I had ReactOS on a 100GiB virtual disk). The FTLK console opens fine though. Try installing it on your host OS and tra...

Re: Choosing a Linux distribution

I've found Manjaro Linux to be a good balance between the newness of packages and stability with a sane default setup. Throw wine-staging on it and it'll run the majority of games barring some of the less efficient dx11 games.

Re: Amazing progress!

Forks are almost always good, if something good gets implemented in the fork that ROS can use we can just merge their patch. As for forks that break NT compatibility, they will most likely be irrelevant as they will have less capabilities and stability than they would have had otherwise.

Bringing back the software compatibility database?

Are there any plans to bring back the software compatibility database? I use the wine app database very frequently and the functionality it brings is something I miss when testing programs for ReactOS.

Re: Is it possible to LiquidSky Windows Client on React OS

It appears to work in wine on linux https://blog.liquidsky.tv/2016/07/06/ge ... ient-work/ and that is a good sign for running it in ReactOS but I have not heard of anyone trying it yet.
