You might be interested in the LoseThos operating system as a starting point for your own, or for ideas. It's 64-bit and includes a 64-bit compiler/assembler I wrote. It's public domain and open source. I tried to keep it simple and I inovated many things.

It supports multicore.

Omg it looks like windows 1.0 but better thanks i am going to try and turn it into a 32 bitt system and ad a better gui. no offence but the gui looks horrible but little ram netted is nutty. My windows xp system take 256 mb ram out of my 512 this wont do that.

You can't make it 32 bit. It's 64-bit and totally wouldn't work unless you wanted to downgrade the compiler I wrote.

I wisely chose 640x480x4 because it's incredibly responsive. If you change the graphics resolution it will be a dog.

RAM totally doesn't matter -- any 64-bit machine will be fine. I have 2 Gig RAM on my machine and work hard to find uses for it. I have a couple 128 Meg RAM drives I uses for CD-IMAGE files, just because I can. I could change settings and make it run on maybe 32 Meg RAM, but why? That's stupid -- all modern 64-bit systems have a minim of like 512 Meg.

OK i tried running it i have problems with it . this is what i get. when it asks the first quistion i say yes it hangs completely then reboots. i say no then i enter the code failure how do i boot it? Your os looks like windows 1.0 buty has way more features. When is the next release coming out ? Why not turn this into a comunity prodject ? its opensource. We make it secure and give it more aplications.

You mostly, will make it more secure? Yay, its "open source", lets make it a community project!!. #-o One of the Beginner Mistakes. BTW how do you know it has many features since you failed at booting it?

Sorry... To stay on the topic: I booted your OS in Bochs, I selected Y and when PANIC appeared, I selected "Continue and dont ask again". Then it switched to 640x480, but the bochsout displayed this:
FISTTP64: required SSE3, use --enable-sse option

So I added this command line option to bochsdbg.exe but it failed "command line not understood"...
MS virtual PC failed to detect the port and I don't own a 64-bit hardware to test it, only this PC, but sadly I don't have a CD-RW at the moment to test it on here.

Hi,

That's because you'd need to do "./configure --enable-sse=3" (and any other options you'd want) and then "make bochs"...


Cheers,

Brendan

I knew it after that, I'm not that dumb. I think they forgot about including the support in Bochs's binary for Windows eh? :roll:

No wonder you guys aren't getting anywhere with your operating systems -- you're using VMWARE crap.

May I ask what's VMware supposed to do with OSdev at all? I debug on Bochs and test my OS on real hardware... ;)

Of course it does direct access to hardware.
