Re: Visopsys 0.84 - [NEW INSTRUCTIONS] Init failed while booting as a Virtual Floppy from coreboot/SeaBIOS

Hi qmastery! Thanks for the update. You've been very patient, thanks - I know I promised to look at this a while ago. I'm just finishing off a feature for 0.9 now - in the next day or two - and then I will start trying with this. If I can get it to work, I will do a 0.85 release with that as a new f...

Re: Visopsys discussion forum

I have taken a stab at designing my whole hard drive and introduce the operating system. I made a boot menu and each time I attempt to boot from hd0a the boot procedure never commences. I attempted form 0.70 and 0.69. I attempted commonly however it simply hasn't worked. I am simply utilizing one p...

Visopsys 0.84 released

There is a new minor release available from the download page https://visopsys.org/download/ . To summarize, this is a collection of patches that have been back-ported as I work on the 0.9 version. It's mostly under-the-hood (under-the-bonnet for my British friends) stuff that wouldn't be very notic...

Re: Introduce Yourself

Are you also a private pilot? I was looking over some of the introduction posts and thought that was the case. Yes, I earned a private license back in the day, but I haven't done much flying since I moved to the UK 16 years ago - just the odd one at a flight school, with an instructor. I'm not curr...

Re: Porting GCC to Visopsys?

The devil is in the details as they says. Once I started figuring out what it would actually take to perform those steps, I quietly decided to abandon the project. Ha! Well, thanks for looking into it :P It will probably be a lot easier for me, once I get around to it. I know all the 'nuts and bolt...

Re: Introduce Yourself

Hi there hansencomputers, welcome! I also use Linux Mint as my main desktop+development OS, and now so does my not-really-techy wife, after she had a go with Win10 on her new laptop, and asked me for Linux instead. :lol: She mostly likes the switch. The Mrs. dabbled in a bit of programming recently;...

Re: Issue when getting file size

By the way, do you have any news about https://visopsys.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=292&start=10#p1463 ? I could test your debug builds Sorry mate I wish I could say I'd started on this, but right now I'm pushing to finish the 0.9 features that I've been promising for so long. I imagine that I'm...

Re: Porting GCC to Visopsys?

That would be great, it's been on my wish list for a while, and it would be a good one to have as the first meaty installable package from the new software repository. I think being able to do development would also require a decent editor :-) It's been a while since I looked at porting gcc, but it'...

Re: Translating Visopsys OS

Hi, Andy. Can you send me new PO files to modify translate for new version? Liss21@yandex.ru Will do Liss. I'll generate the PO files as one of the final steps. I'm planning to switch everything over to UTF-8 with 0.9, which mostly only affects the fonts though - with the PO files it's as simple as...

Re: Issue when getting file size

"help" command prints a quite long list of commands, however not all of these commands are available at the floppy version. Perhaps you've decided to keep the unavailable command descriptions at "help" just in case someone modifies their Visopsys floppy to include some new commands or replace some ...
