Re: Visopsys 0.81 Released

Hello Andy. I understand about the little one. I had four of them myself soooo many years ago. Anyway - relative to the new version of Visopsys (.81): horray! horray! The .81 version of Visopsys now works on my Athlon 7860 dual core x86_64, which is on an ASUS N68 motherboard. It has 2G memory and i...

Re: Visopsys 0.8 hardware compatability

Hi: While I've done most of my VisOpSys operating/testing with QEMU, I've had the OS running on two different real computers: a 900 MHz Pentium III, and a more recent laptop (about 2008/9 timeframe). It doesn't run on my 2012 AMD64 or Compaq SFF II, so I'm batting about 50 percent. I think Andy is u...

Re: Bug reporting thread

One other thing Andy: I really like the new window decorations. The window icons look nice and crisp on my 1280x1024 screen. I suppose I could hook up a serial cable, and try to get more debug info for you. One of the last messages in the kernel.log file was "kernel logging stopped". So - does VisOp...

Re: Bug reporting thread

Hi Andy: I bet you're BWB (busy with the baby). Congrats again! I transferred the USB image for VIsOpSys version 0.8 to a mem stick, and ran it on real hardware (~5 year old ASUS Mini). It boots fine, displays the "install vs run" dialog, and displays the desktop when I bump the enter key. But it se...

Re: How to compile software in Visopsys

That took a long time to read!

Anyway, thanks for the update info. Sure seems like it'll be fun to see the results of all that hard work, after you've uploaded the revision.

Re: How to compile software in Visopsys

Hmm, were you trying the compile the 0.77 code, or the preview 0.8 code? (BTW, I'm finally getting around to doing the 0.8 release - just updating documentation and whatnot) The 0.77 code had a problem with booting debug ISOs in some cases. Also: are you building on a 64-bit OS? I've been using a 3...

Re: Problems with APIC on QEMU

I might have thought about it if I was like Ron the debugging ninja, but no, not really :mrgreen: Would it be exceptionally useful? LOL - If there were any ninjas on this end, I'd have submitted a bug patch by now. But, seriously, I'm slowly getting the parameters lined up so that I might be able t...

Re: Problems with APIC on QEMU

With the Visopsys build pretty solid, and QEMU working with it, my next big thing was to figure a way to switch the current thread in a GDB session. That's something that's real easy to do when debugging userland programs running natively and locally. I realized that all of the GNU debugger's proces...

Re: Problems with APIC on QEMU

Finally, I'm making some sense of this QEMU thing. Well, I'm making sense of it until something else pops up, in any case. But - we've had some progress perhaps. I noted in the last message that I was seeing the symptoms of our QEMU related interrupt issues with "debug" target builds. Andy's prebuil...
