Tutorial: Boot VisOpSys from USB (Windows)

NOTE: Remember to always run your emulator programs as an Administrator, to allow them to use your real hardware (like bootable disks) with full privileges. Otherwise they might run with limited features or simply fail. http://devel.archefire.org/favicons/youtube_32x32.png >> View Video Showing VisO...

Tutorial: Compile VisOpSys

I made this tutorial to show exactly how to compile and build the VisOpSys disk images. I compiled it under Topologilinux 7.0.1. I used VirtualBox under Windows 7, but the building process was performed under Linux. Then, watch this video. We download the VisOpSys source code ( 0.77 in this case ), ...

Is GIF image support present?

Last time I tested and read VisOpSys features I didn't find GIF support, and I remember to have seen that it wasn't implemented. If so, why isn't GIF support implemented? The LZW patent is supposed to be expired also. I have been able to implement basic GIF decompression in HTML5 (for the latest Fir...

Installing/booting Visopsys from USB?

What can be expected to happen if Visopsys were to be booted from an USB mass storage device, like a hard disk in a case or just a memory stick? If it can be booted from a regular hard disk, I guess it could be booted from USB, but I suspect that distinguishing that fact and actually controlling the...

Compilation successful under Topologilinux 7.0.1

I just compiled Visopsys 0.7 under Topologilinux 7.0.1 with GCC 4.2.3 and NASM 0.98.39. I remember to have tried months ago with the "preview" version and compilation failing, but now no errors are printed and the floppy image can be successfuly created (I haven't booted it yet but I'm almost sure i...
