I desperately want to compile 0.72

Hi Andy! I am so so happy you got your forum fixed. I love developing Visopsys because it's not too complicated for an operating system novice like myself but it can be expanded easily. Basically it's no MikeOS . I've talked to you before via email about issues building and running 0.71 on my x64 bi...

Re: install-*.sh problems

I don't think I did that intentionally... What exactly should I remount? I assume that it's the filesystem that install.sh sets up? But then that makes no sense...

Re: install-*.sh problems

No no don't get the wrong idea... its more of a self challenge thing. I'm a freshman in high-school and I do kinda want the challenge of many things.

I think you may be right. i'll keep the name (honestly there is no reason to change it, I would have reverted it)

Re: install-*.sh problems

The reason I ask is because I tried to change the name of the kernel. And it keeps saying its not in the root directory. Here's what I did: a) Changed the output of ./src/kernel/Makefile b) Changed loaderLoadKernel.s variable to reflect it c) Changed install-files.basic Am I missing something? osmiu...

Re: install-*.sh problems

Ok, I fixed it. But just out of curiosity, what changed between this version's ISO and 0.7's? They look different in MagicISO (running on Windows 7) 0.7 has all capital names by default (probably due to the fs used) but 0.71 does not... also, is the kernel name supposed to have 3 spaces at the end o...

Re: install-*.sh problems

There is another mount command in the Unix installation script that doesn't appear to specify what filesystem to use. What should I tell it?

Re: install-*.sh problems

Yes, I am root (that is a powerful statement :) ). For some reason I had to chmod all of these files so that they had the "x" attribute so I could execute them. I don't think that has anything to do with it, but that may be a useful tidbit of info.

install-*.sh problems

Hello again. Man, it seems like I have no luck with these install scripts again... but this time I'm using CentOS! ;) The problem happens in install.sh, called from install-floppy.sh, called from install-cd.sh. I did some debugging and found that the problem was comming from "mount" in the install.s...

Re: Visopsys 0.71 released

This release is great. I like the shutdown and what seems to be faster graphics that don't tear.

Re: Interupt handlers

Oh, ok. I was assuming that with such a large improvement such as the acpi shutdown the version would advance a whole .1

Looking forward to it. How easy will it be to incorporate the changes I've made (mainly graphical) from .7 to .71?
