I want to share some recent fun stuff with ya.
Number one: UniOS.
The “dev” calls it a perfect os supporting any Windows, MacOS and Linux apps. Check this:
Have fun reading and feel free to comment here
As the last ReactOS Project meeting showed the urgent need to get a new RosBE done with cmake support and a new GCC, here a possibility for ya to get you wished realized.
– Well, the cmake support is already there inside the new scripts inside SVN. It detects if there are cmake build files and if so, it will use cmake to build ROS. Otherwise it will fall back to RBUILD. This works like a charm and follows the structure being given in the configure scripts inside the cmake compatible trees. But you just need to type make MODULE or makex MODULE as always before.
– I already tried to make a new GCC 4.6 and it even built, but it produces quite some strange crap, so I will have to retry later ^^
– The path variable will be fully overwritten again, because it makes problems in certain cases, like cmake with a sh.exe inside %PATH%.
Now the main part of my post. Any wishes? Any features you want? Feel free to post em here or send em via mail HERE
Hey guys. Yeah I am not writing much these days, but thats due to my internship and my fully planned weekend (PARTY). The company rocks. Everyone is nice. Work is nice. My internship leader is a great guy. What more do ya want? I learned that Server 2008 is a nice OS and it really is far superior to Linux. (Feel free to hate me now 😉 ) I learned that printers suck, especially HP Universal Printer Driver Controlled ones and Canon ones! Sooo, everything is great, except the school. We have Religion and Sports, WOW, really important for a IT guy! Sports is dancing and gymnastics ad the Relgion guy called my a militant atheist with affections to Nationalsocialism. Thx man, I hate you, too! 😛
I wont forget my work on RosBE of course. I already added support for CMAKE, which will become the main build system after our sucky rbuild. I made many fixes, too, so you can expect a nice and clean RosBE with GCC 4.5.X soon. rbuild support will still stay for a while, but feature freezed. It just sucks too much to investigate more time to it. But why am I telling ya? You KNOW it anyway 😉
Ah btw, visit us at CLT2011! LINK
Hi, another small update. My job takes more time as university did, oh wow, who would have guessed it would 😛
I made a nice, full winesync to the recent Wine release Version. It needs to be commited, but I dont have much time next week and testman is still down, so we have to wait anyway.
HERE is the archive with the two patches. Please, at least test it and if you have much spare time, commit some of it. Thx
… I am back here. As some already know, I started an internship in a Auditing and tax consulting company in the IT. Its quite nice there. Everyone is friendly, work is real fun. Work times are not that regular, but who cares? I get home early enough to still do my Moderator Job at the ReactOS Forums and to play some SNES 😉 Well, most times. Last week on one day I worked for 16 hrs meaning from 7:45 am to 0:30 (+45 min break)… At that day I wanted to go to my bed and stay there for the next two days. But, nope. When I arrived at home (we were outside the company at that day and it was more far away) it was 1:30 and thus I was able to sleep 5 hours before I had to get up for work… wow, I was soo dead the next day.
Changes will happen very soon. A migration to GCC 4.5.1, new binutils and cmake is getting very close. RBUILD sucks way to much to be kept alive, so we change over to another beast doing a way better job. This work is mostly done by Amine Khaldi, but many other devs, pissed because of RBUILD’s crappiness, help in recent days to get things work properly.
Thats it for now.
I compiled the same GCC I used for RosBE64 1.4 for 32 bit, too.
Feel free to test it. LINK
Happy testing. Its not on sf.net yet and will be uploaded as soon as some guys did test it.
now that my wine sync wave is done I decided to get back to GCC and started a new 64 bit gcc build after Timo Kreuzer asked for one.
GCC 4.5.0 release
Link will follow today or tomorrow.
Hi, yesterday the recent pofacs podcast with me being interviewed went online. Happy listening 😀
Some might know that we had a XBox port of ROS a while ago. It was not really maintained because we had no USB working at that time and its the only way to add a Mouse and Keyboard to the Box. Thus the port at all is fully regressed. To fix it we need a way to receive debug output. Well, Output to file and screen works, but not in the early stages of our bootloader + not in the kernel debugger which halts all File System drivers on access and screen output only works on boot, not in GUI Mode. Here we need a Serial Port and the only XBox with a Serial Port is a DevKit. (NOT the green Debug Box). If anyone has one or knows where to get one, plz mail me.
