i'm still here. Sorry for not talking much.

As i probably said, i've got a new computer, Athlon64, GFFX5950Ultra, Serial ATA HDD and other cool and pricy stuff. However i still have problems setting up my SEAL working environment. Namely:

1. DOS refuses to see my SATA disk. A workaround is to put an old disk. But i won't since this will decrease the performace of my system (SATA slows down when an IDE disk is attached).

2. SEAL doesn't work with Windows XP. It just doesn't run. I'll see....

3. I don't have time!!!


Except these, important but we-ll-find-a-workaround-anyway, anything goes... err... ok. The glue library is finished(?) and the kernel compiles nicely (but doesn't run :-p). My new computer lets me compile everything in seconds . That's nice.

Btw, the name of the new SEAL will be XSeal, so forget SEAL3, 4, etc. The versioning will be XSeal 0.x.yy, until we reach version 1.0 which will be the first official stable version. Like other opensource projects does (Mozilla, FreePascal, etc)

It may take a while for my next post. For urgent messages, send an e-mail to b4sector.remove.the.spam.s*** >at< net.remove.scape.nospam [dot] net.remove
(demangle the abone in order to figure out my actual e-mail and please don't post it - WWW spam robots SUX)

Is seal in hybernation until more of your developers have time to work on it? I haven't heard much in the forums lately and the activity level always seems to be at its highest around summer.

I feel we should have a chat room meeting on IRC or something. Talk about different ideas and how to DO them.

Why have you decided to rename SEAL to XSeal? - I prefer just "Seal".

2. SEAL doesn't work with Windows XP. It just doesn't run. I'll see....

- That was *EXACTLY* the reason why I thought about making Seal run under Linux and Win32, at least in compatibility mode...

about 1. - I didn't knew that any problems could arise because of SATA...
It's strange - they (ATA and SATA) are logically compatible.

a) What DOS you use?
b) How do you partition your new hi-end PC?
c) Which File systems you plan to use?

LOL.... logically Compatiblr....that means nothing these days.

Sure the 386+ and New (3dNow!/MMX/SSE/SSE2/ABCXYZ) chips are logically compatible with the 8086, but that doesn't mean (insert modern fps game here) will just run slower on my IBM 5150....it won't fraggin' run!

So BS, how's the new 64 working out for ya.... I'm sitting on a winky Duron 700... perhaps I'll upgrade in the future, but as long as I keep my system optimized nothing slows down...

Speed has never been an issue for me....multitasking is a matter of spinning my chair to different positions....until I get a KVM switch...it's nice to have alot of computers, and it burns fat pretty good too.

If anyone needs any helpful DOS advice, those who know me well enough can contact me.

problems continues...

Not only my DOS (MSDOS from Windows Me, modified) cannot see my HDD, but my Linux also refuses to do the same. The problem is fixed -they say- in kernel 2.6, but i don't have a 2.6-based distribution. I actually don't think that there is a 2.6 distro yet . So i have to compile EVERYTHING from the very beginning.

I'll try with FreeDOS, but to say the truth, i don't think that it will work (because of that "let's make FD as MSDOS compatible as we can" path that FD has...).


A solution? I can't think anything. Any my internet is off for now (i'm posting from a friend's computer).

I named it XSeal because i want to emphasize the difference between old code and new code. If you don't like it, well, we live in a free world (yeah right).... when the first version is released, you are welcome to make a distribution with another name as long as you follow the GPL correctly (but, to be honest, i don't see any sanity in making a distro just for having a different name).


Ah, and by the way. From my last post to this post, there isn't any source code change. With that i mean that i didn't had time to work on it. I want to make many things, but i just can't find the time...

Never did for me, however I am using NTFS, so it does not, when I had a FAT partition it did..

NTFS vs. FAT shouldn't make any difference, you're running SEAL in NTVDM
