Welcome myrubapa. Do you have any particular parts of an OS that you're interested in working on?

Just about everything is written in basic C, so you should be able to jump in once you get used to the differences in the OS 8-)

:doh: Sorry about the forum disappearance for a few days there, folks.

I was doing stuff to the database server, for another website, and somehow (I still don't think I did anything wrong) I screwed up the permissions.

I'm such an SQL expert that it took me a few days to figure it out. :oops:

Glad the forum is back online. Just by accident, I typed "forum.visopsys.org," and was taken to a page that read "this domain has just been registered." So maybe Andy is doing some maintenance and moving things around a little?

I wanted to ask. At this stage, whether it is possible to port any framevork on Vysopsis? Such as QT? I remember that this step has allowed a bunch of software ported to Haiku-OS.

I can't *think* of any reason why it wouldn't be possible. Porting any large thing will probably require adding more C library functionality (the C library is not complete - we just add things as needed) but these C library functions are usually pretty simple. The only major piece that's missing, still, is real networking support. So if QT uses a bunch of sockets, etc. (e.g. for interprocess communication) then we'd need to do a bit of work to support that.

It's probably a fairly major job, to be realistic.
