Re: My experiences with Visopsys install on QEMU virt disk

Thanks Ron, Ok, yeah that makes more sense now :-) That list of disks in the installer is 'logical' disks, which for partition-able disks, means partitions. Maybe I should make that a bit more user-friendly and helpful for cases like this. I'll make another note to myself about that one. Hi Ron, I ...

Re: Now for something different

Thanks for listening (watching), Ron. Nowadays I don't have time (or else financial justification) for all of my old hobbies, but music and Visopsys are the 2 I couldn't give up! Luckily my wife is a professional musician - classical pianist - so she's understanding when I want to go off and do band...

Now for something different

My band released a new EP and video in February, if you're into that kind of thing (punk rock things). I'm the singer.

Re: Visopsys 0.85 Released

Hi Ron, Ahh, ha ha, no. I'm not quite sure how I'd even go about that. The majority of the code is in the monolithic kernel, which is fairly hierarchically flat. A meaningful diagram would have to describe a sequence of things that happen at initialization. It's like a big library after that - kind ...

Re: Bug reporting thread

It might be worth trying the new 0.85 release. I did a bunch of work on the APIC driver and interrupt infrastructure, and definitely solved some problems (for example, it can now boot on my own dev workstation)

Re: Visopsys 0.84+ (2019-08-09) cannot detect a harddrive

Visopsys gets its IRQ routing info from the multiprocessor tables (not ACPI), if that helps. By the way, your 0.85 floppy still doesn't boot if embedded to a BIOS (same errors as your previous releases), so I don't know if your special code - which made 2019-08-09 floppy working as a part of BIOS - ...

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

If anyone here is still interested, the newly-released version 0.85 may do what's required here. I implemented it for Coreboot/SeaBIOS support: if you create a file /ramdisk in the root of the floppy disk image, the loader will load the boot medium into memory and pass the address to the kernel, whi...
