Anyone out there using QNX4 on a Sony VAIO PCG-F680K All-in-One or
Toshiba Tecra 8100? We’re currently using the Tecra 510 and are

laptops, whenever I buy a new one I always go to this page, print out
specs, and keep it in my carrying case. I have used Toshiba laptops
for years. Currently only my audio doesn’t work under RtP, however,
(PCMCIA, video, and audio) work fine under QNX 4.
Be careful, I would recommend you to try QNX/Neutrino there before buy.
I’m using Toshiba Libretto110CT with NeoMagic MagicGraph 128XD video,
which seems to be supported by Photon, but it doesn’t work. Even no
VESA, only VGA 640x480x4bit. Futher more, Yamaha sound card doesn’t
looks like SB compatible. I just hate this noteboocks hardware.
This was the case for me with the released RtP. My 2145XCDT has an
(explicitly supported) S3VirgeMX chipset which didn’t work. I am now
running patch ‘A’ and it works perfectly. The problems with the hardware
support under RtP do not fall in Toshibas’ court. My 2145XCDT,
and (I am willing to bet) your Libretto 110CT are both perfectly supported
under QNX4. If your hardware works with QNX4 and doesn’t work with
RtP; it is simply a matter of time before it does (with a few exceptions of
course). IMO it is unreasonable to expect that any laptops are going to
work perfectly with RtP probably until patch ‘B’.
btw: Libretto’s are wonderful machines, I can’t possibly imagine why
you wouldn’t like it (if I hadn’t just bought the 1715 2 weeks ago
I would have made you an offer on the Libretto).
