Hi,

   A topic in what subject?  What level/kind of degree?
Not that I see me coming up with anything.

Regards,

Steve N.

Ok, that ended on a weird silence. Thus I am to blame.
Per usual. What to do ?

Hi Rudi,

   Well, the weird silence from me was due to no good ideas or
suggestions.  If you have a copy of Knuth's "The Art of Computer
Programming" available, then he has placed a difficulty level on
the exercises in his books.

00  Immediate
10  Simple (one minute)
20  Medium (quarter hour)
30  Moderately Hard
40  Term project
50  Research problem

   I think he underestimates some of the difficulties on some
of his problems.  Anyway, you might find one of his exercises
could give you an idea for your degree problem.

   I just have a B.A. in Chemistry, so did not get as far as you
seem to have gotten.  And I am not too good at coming up
with new ideas.  At least the good kind.

Regards,

Steve N.

I agree
Also if you want challenges for yourself in asm,you can sometimes find students in other languages forums ask advice on task given by professor to make program that solves programming problems and make it run as fast as possible and make asm program that beat it
Earlier tasks done
Rosettacode.org,calculate  very huge fibonnaci numbers fast with help of matrices

SIMT task
Several million random numbers test if primes
As fast as possible

open for suggestions on what to make

just wonder if I get different register values depending on it is run directly after linker or use a .bat file that starts it after another program?
or it is the windows .bat file handler registers after?

Might be fun to find out, no?

Oracle VirtualBox is one giant bug
« Reply #87 on: June 01, 2022, 11:19:10 AM »
I got it running years ago on my Win7-64 machine, and I remember it was messy. But it runs fine with WinXP-32 guest OS.

Now I've wasted the whole night trying to do the same on Windows 10. An incredible mess. Everybody has good advice, mostly contradictory, and nothing works as described :sad:

One small example:
Code: [Select]
An error has occurred during virtual machine execution! The error details are shown below. You may try to correct the error and resume the virtual machine execution.

The I/O cache encountered an error while updating data in medium "ahci-0-2" (rc=VERR_ACCESS_DENIED). Make sure there is enough free space on the disk and that the disk is working properly. Operation can be resumed afterwards.

Error ID: BLKCACHE_IOERR
Severity: Non-Fatal Error

There are gigabytes free, and I am running the bloody thing as admin :sad:

When I click OK, it says I can resume by clicking resume in the menu bar. There is only "Paused", but clicking there has no effect.

Just a silly question, did you use a 64 bit version for Win64 ?

Sure. Host is Win10-64, guest OS is Win7-32. Everything works fine except the integration of the local disk :sad:

Some hours later I've discovered that to use shared folders you need guest additions. Wow!
At https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads I read "it is recommended to upgrade the guest additions as well" :greenclp:
Of course, they wouldn't tell me where to find them, that would be far too easy, right?  :bgrin:
