Re: Tutorial: Compile VisOpSys

Personally, I'm still firmly entrenched in x86* land - no change for me :-)

Yes nextvolume, if you still have that and/or diffs of the changes you had to make, that would be great to start playing with.

I haven't done a partition logic release in a while but I should do (the disk manager has a number of improvements) and this would be another reason to update it

Re: Tutorial: Compile VisOpSys

'~' gave the good info. bostontrainer was a spam account. :naughty:

I haven't used VirtualBox for a little while now, any luck with the running Visopsys against its PcNet implementation? If it doesn't work I'd probably like to fix that.

Re: Is it possible to PXE boot Partition Logic /Visopsys?

Hi PorkChops, welcome. I'm afraid I haven't tried this at all, I think it would need some minor(ish) code tweaks, but I haven't looked at that protocol for a long while. I don't quite remember how it all works. The floppy or ISO images do contain everything needed to boot the system, but yes when th...

Re: My experiences with Visopsys install on QEMU virt disk

Super, thanks Ron. Could've been the NULLs, but I suspect your router was sending an auto-generated name, and my DHCP code was just sending it back (i.e. 'accepting' it) rather than replying with its own preferred name. Now it always replaces any auto-generated one in its reply, if a hostname is set...

Re: My experiences with Visopsys install on QEMU virt disk

From the DHCP RFC 2132: Options containing NVT ASCII data SHOULD NOT include a trailing NULL; however, the receiver of such options MUST be prepared to delete trailing nulls if they exist. The receiver MUST NOT require that a trailing null be included in the data. I guess the NULL characters I've be...

Re: My experiences with Visopsys install on QEMU virt disk

Thanks so much for your ongoing interest and support! This DHCP thing has been bugging me, and also I'm avoiding addressing the one remaining hairy, gelatinous bug that stands between me and an 0.83 release :lol: Could you possibly try this one? https://visopsys.org/files/visopsys/visopsys-2018-07-0...

Re: My experiences with Visopsys install on QEMU virt disk

Hi Ron, I spent a little while tonight trying to reproduce the DHCP hostname issue, with different VMware network device settings, MAC address. different hostnames and domain names, but I couldn't reproduce this - couldn't get my Linksys router not to see the hostname - it's always whatever it's set...

Re: Visopsys 0.82 released

LOL RMS .. that kooky guy.

OK smart guy, but if you locked me and him in a room for a day, pretty sure I'd come out with a self-inflicted head-wound.
