Re: Just re-built my 17 year old computer... how to start ReactOS testing?

I think FAT32 is the better choice since its also supported by Windows. I can even exchange small system files using an old Win 98 1.44 MB floppy boot disk... That's the fastest way to boot into something like an OS on that machine. Using Linux for btrfs would take a longer time since I had to use ...

Re: Just re-built my 17 year old computer... how to start ReactOS testing?

some binary hardware drivers from the manufacturers are stored. It is also a test if ROS leaves these driver files untouched... Don´t forget to back up these drivers before doing anything! And upload them into your Google Drive /Onedrive , Telegram,... I hope that there will be Open Source drivers ...

Re: Just re-built my 17 year old computer... how to start ReactOS testing?

...and here are my first results: Before testing, I have deleted all partitions and formatted both HDDs using an old Win 98 boot floppy with fdisk and format.com. So I got an empty 60GB drive C: and an empty 10GB drive D: with FAT32 as file system. Image file: ReactOS 0.4.10 + new USB from vgal.ru....

Re: Dear developers

Dear developers, Thank you for only giving me a temporary ban. I would like to discuss guidelines on pms, as part of my ban was for pm bombing. The reason why I sent more than one was because I never got a response for a long amount of time. I understand that you all are busy, but I still feel it's...

and also observe how the bitmaps are paletted-indexed bitmaps, and not regular 24-bits bitmaps.
how do i make such a bitmap? what software can be used?
I am thinking on GIMP (https://www.gimp.org/).

Re: Switching the target to the NT 6.x kernel might save R&D time in the long run

It may be merely an English translation issue. Quim may not understand the nuance that his "we expect" comments give. Note to Quim - replace the word 'expect' with 'hope', ie. "we hope that in the year of Windows 7...NT 5.2 kernel will be almost complete" - this way it feels less like you are order...

Re: Just re-built my 17 year old computer... how to start ReactOS testing?

Hi, i finally got my super old PC working again. 1) CPU: AMD Athlon K7 1333 MHz@1000 MHz Due to an old CMOS battery the Board resetted all configuration to default and the CPU now only runs at 1000 MHz. But I remember that System having temperature issues at a high workload and I think I'll keep th...

Re: Switching the target to the NT 6.x kernel might save R&D time in the long run

But the last 10-20 percent takes the longest. So it might be just "mostly complete" for years to come. So about 80% of NT 5.2 kernel is complete. But, the 20 % missing is the hard part, like full Windows 98/2000/XP/2003 drivers support (it is assumed that ReactOS should work also in old hardware th...

¿Plan B para un repositorio fuera del control de USA?

https://www.muylinux.com/2019/05/29/geo ... o-abierto/

¿Tendrán un plan B en la fundación ReactOS para el caso de que Github (GitLab, y otros) embargue a los desarrolladores de Rusia?
¿O al estar la fundación registrada en USA, está protegida de embargos?
