Playing with ReactOS Operating System for fun

 

 

 

 

In this hands-on tutorial we will learn how to install ReactOS on VirtualBox virtual machine which the Windows XP Pro as the host. Then we will try to build ReactOS from the source codes by using SVN client, starting by downloading the source code, installing ReactOS Build environment (RosBE) and finally building ReactOS from the source codes. The building processes include several output formats such as boot CD, live CD, installation files and etc. We will also try to generate the Visual Studio solution files which can be used to build ReactOS using Visual Studio.

The third part of this practice will demonstrate on how to debug ReactOS via serial port. Though the Windows XP Pro doesn't have physical serial ports, we will create virtual serial port using com0com. PUTTY and Windows HyperTerminal were used to capture the debug messages. The debug messages are very useful for system developers in order to debug and fix the ReactOS bugs. Hopefully these crash, hands-on tutorials will provide a very good starting points for further ReactOS exploration and development.
