I think that the SVGA is breaking my OS!

Ok. Lets get down to business.

  1.  The driver in question is VMWare SVGA, PearOS just makes a wrapper around it
  2.  If your problem is with the PearOS wrapper, talk to them. If the problem is with the driver, then this is the place.
  3. You haven't given us any error messages or logs or source or anything. We can't read minds.

I love these people. Ok now let me say this one more time. =)

#1 the SVGA driver has a bug where when "DrawRectangle" is called, the screen flashes. There was also a bug I believe with the screen flickering that I fixed.

Now I have said this time after time after time after time. I didn't write a wrapper around it, I rewrote the driver to make it work. I would upload it as fixed, but I cant on my machine. So I never bothered to do it. Now.

Your saying my driver is killing your os. Um, well if it works in mine then its not the driver. Its your code! Somewhere, that is killing your os. I dont know where. It could be a RAM overflow, a system call that is not yet implemented. I dont know, but you might want to figure out whats really crashing the OS.

+1 CMan, but the thing is, there was bugs. I fixed them and personally forgot what they were. I just know that when I used the stock Cosmos SVGA driver there was some issues. And I believe one was a RAM leak, that I patched up. I cant remember. - Matt

The error message is in vmware. I posted it in another post. And it worked, I added the SVGA, and then it did not work. I will test again though.

It might be that I did not reference cosmos.hardware.

Huh, not sure whats going on. I have seen weird stuff before. Could even be the VMWare version your using. - Matt
