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

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?

Re: Help, Build Visopsys Failed

This fallthrough is intentional. Apparently you can put a comment that will suppress the warning you're seeing (without running your version of gcc though, I can't test it). Change the bit of kernelFloppy.c around line 959 to add this "fall through" comment: kernelError(kernel_warn, "Floppy disk fd%...

Re: Help, Build Visopsys Failed

Re: OS Development Tutorial for Beginner

There's a collection of links and things on the visopsys.org site https://visopsys.org/osdev/.

The best overall resource today is probably OSDev.org https://wiki.osdev.org/Main_Page
