Getting packages w/o internet connection from QNX?

Hi group!

I have just d’loaded the QNX RTP, but I don’t think I can configure a
dial-up connection for I don’t have a modem but an ISDN card.

Is there a way to get the additional packages with Windows and install them
from there?

Will the $29 CD help me?

Thx in advance,

Do it all the time.

If you have TCP/IP then you can FTP the files onto QNX from Windows via LAN, or Serial+PPP, or
dialup+PPP.

If your PC has a QNX and a Windows Partition, and you have a recent Dosfsys,
then you can read the DOS/Windows partition to get the downloaded files.

If your QNX and Windows are Connected by LAN, then tell the QNX that the Windows is a
server/gateway to the internet, connect the Windows to the Web, and then ftp or browse directly from
the QNX to quics (You might have to specify the exact IP instead of the name quics.qnx.com
On windows in a DOS Shell type “ping quics.qnx.com” or any other address, ping will show the true IP
being used.

And if the updates are small enough you can put them on DOS Floppies.
Lots of options depending upon your setup…

Yes, d’loading ‘normal’ files with Windows and using them in QNX files is
easy. But I think I need to use the QNX package manager to get gcc,
Renderware, emacs, …?
Did not find them anywhere as windows-downloadable files!

Sigh. My setup consists of ONE PC. So I cannot have QNX and an internet
connection the same time. Thats my problem, I think.

Sorry, I’m unfamiliar with the QNX Package Manager.
Most of the QNX 3rd party install are just Tar, gzip, or frozen files (.tar, .gz .F)
and they can be install by either unzipping them and reading the Docs,
or using /etc/install … as per the QNX download free software page.

Where are you getting those files from?
Are you using QNX4, QNX RTP?
Are you using the CD Installer?

The package mangler ™ is a QNX6 (RtP) package, and doesn’t apply to QNX4.
Why don’t you just set up QNX to connect to the Internot? Unless you’ve got
one of those crappy WinModems, you may be able to set up PPP under QNX and away
you go. But if you indeed did download stuff under Windoze, when you boot into
QNX4 you should be able to go pull those files off of your Windoze partition
provided you run the latest dosfsys or whatever it’s called these days. You
won’t be able to download the new RtP stuff and have it run under QNX4, you’ll
have to do a new RtP installation to play with the new toys. It sounds like
that may be the real issue you’re facing…
