Thanks in-advance.

Cool! I can't wait to look at it! I'm at college now, so I can't use it, but when I get home that will be one of the first things I do. Very Happy

I thought that might break my dexos format util, and it did. I'll get that redone and posted this weekend

PS the dexos forum is http://dex.7.forumer.com
not http://jas2o.forthworks.com/dexforum/ as stated in the readme

usb: do not detects a pluged pendrive
cd: only works on root directory
hd only the primary partition is mounted ,i have fat16,fat32,ext2fs on this hard drive
other things seems to be ok.

dex is ok, it starts, but the vesaGUI in program menu is not ok. it is only a white screen, and leaves when hit a key.

navigation is not intuitive, i'd prefer backspace as B button, not escape. escape to return to the root?
settings don't do anything.

media player, enter or space to play/pause. better than the 'p' key.
it plays, but no sound.

HW:
PII (celeron) 563MHz, 64M ram, SB PCI 128, NVIdia Georce 2 400 MX.

First thanks all for testing.
@roboman, cool look forward to the update and yes i spotted the wrong forum, but it was too late to change it.

@Octavio, not sure why the cpuid did not work, as for usb did you try differant usb sockets, as it only detect the first two (pre-set).
The CD is root only, as i was planing on only using the root dir, when i first made DexOS, also hdd is only designed to work with primary partion.
And the 900k of the same files are just for testing the cd or floppy emulation.

@edfed, vesaGUI is only suppose display a white background, it was a test program i left in.
As for no sound thats because, i did not post any sound driver yet, i will.

@all, Once again thanks for testing Smile .
Regards Dex.

Hey Dex,
Could you release some source-code to look at and play around
with the networking? I'm planning to implement some IP version 6
stack for it. Just for fun Smile

Sure i will, i am going to make DexOS open source, but the tcp/ip stack is very slow, so it will need alot of work.
I should have it post on the web site by this Monday ( 28th of April ).
Regards Dex.

Note: Its not very well commented Sad .

comments are not important if labels have good names.

is there a text editor and a way to launch compiled code on dexos?

it would be very interresting for me to support .COM codes.
one day to wait...

Theres a editor you can assemble fasm code from, but you need to come out of the editor to run the code, this is because i did not get round to finishing, the run the code part from within the IDE, but its all there eg: it move's the editor code out of the way etc, just needs finishing.

To run the code you just type its name in the CLI, eg:
Code:
MyProg <enter>    

Or
Code:
MyProg.dex <enter>    

If it in a differant dir you need to change there first.

You can get it along with the fasm source code here:
http://dex4u.com/download.htm
You need to get "IDE.zip"

PS: Theres a editor only ver too, that i could dig out if you want it.

I have released the source code to "DexOS" as promised.
You need to down load "DexSource.zip" from here:
http://www.dex4u.com/download.htm

Please do not remark on bad spelling or no comments, as that is just a by product of my work.
If you improve some part of it let me know, so i may add it to the main code.
Regards Dex

PS: I will be releasing things like the tcp/ip stack over the coming weeks, i just need to convert them to use the function from the latest ver.

dex compiles without any problem.
the source is not so uncommented... Wink

startin from win98, is ok, it just return to dos, and execute. 1st good point: startin from an existing os. very good for migration. no problem to return to win.

but if startin fro m98, it will not see the ram, memory error, assumed 8MB.
cannot explore the C: drive.
dir and exit ok, but not cd.

one detail about fat32:
the royalties applied for fat32 use (lfn etc...) is not apliable in europ, then, you can use fat32 in you own commercial os in europ with any pb. this point is very important to know.


the command line is ok, but the input is not very powerfull. cannot insert text.

see later for other feedback. Very Happy

sorry if i don't loggin on the dex forum, but the random blinking advice banner is so boring...

I have a keymap on my page to replace the UK one in DexOS with a US one. A few of the keys are wrong in the US one that comes with DexOS. I'm not sure mine is 100%, but it fixes a few keys that bothered me...

Hi sleepsleep,
The simple answer is no, DexOS is a modern ver of what Dos should of been, as in its a pmode 32bit, single tasking (but multi-threading) OS, that as the same basic commands and layout, but is not in anyway compatable with Dos.
The idea behind DexOS is you can quickly try new ideas, as you could with Dos, but with much more memory and better graphics etc.
DexOS as its own GUI in the making, see here:
http://dex4u.com/cdpod.htm

But thanks for the interest sleepsleep.
