Re: Visopsys 0.91 - Return of the RAMdisk?

Argh. I've sorted out my differences with gcc 9, but the kernel it generates is about 10% bigger :angry-cussing:, so the filesystem gets filled up, and making a boot floppy is going to require some fancy footwork. If I can't get the latest gcc to make a smaller kernel, continuing to provide a boot f...

Re: Visopsys 0.91 - Return of the RAMdisk?

Hi qmastery Sorry again for being so slow. Lots going on around here. I also re-installed my OS on my dev workstation, to the latest Mint, and now I have to figure out why I can't build my sources with gcc 9 and the usual gcc-multilib package. It's rejecting my inline assembly bits, trying to build ...

Re: Visopsys 0.91 - Return of the RAMdisk?

Hi qmastery, sorry for the delay. I haven't had much spare time lately, and I've been working on a couple of Visopsys things already that required all my attention. I got a minute just now and tried the /ramdisk. It seems like the RAM disk loading fails for me in the bootloader? The progress bar sto...

Re: Won't finish booting

Hmm. I'm trying this out - skipping PIC initialization. It works fine in a VM, but not so much on my dev workstation.

If I can get something working, what format do you prefer to try? ISO image?

[ EDIT: I see that you've earlier stated a preference for USB]

Re: Visopsys 0.91 - Return of the RAMdisk?

Hi qmastery

That /ramdisk feature ought to still work, in theory. The code went into the latest release. But to be honest I doubt I tested it in the newer version. I'll have to give it a go here and see what it's doing. I'll need to look back at some of the guidance you gave me previously.

Re: Won't finish booting

Hi hooptydoopty, Sorry for dropping the ball on this one. Yep, life's been a bit different lately! Although I did manage to get a big 0.9 release finished in April. Since then I've been pretty occupied with other stuff. When I've been working on Visopsys, it's for a fairly major, necessary change to...

Re: Partition Logic and Oracle VirtualBox

That's great Steven, thanks for sharing.

Glad to hear it worked and was useful! I haven't tried it with VirtualBox for a while now.

I linked to your item on the News page of partitionlogic.org

Re: We are closer to have a web browser now!

Welcome back doga! That's great -- I sort of started a primitive browser (and a "document canvas" window library thing for rendering) but decided I should focus elsewhere for the time being. Partly because it's hard, time-consuming, etc. Not something you can hack up with a few hours of work here an...

Yeah, you're running a much newer version than me. I'm using 5.4.0.

Is everything compiling now?
