Thanks for the reply. I found our upgrade CD and will give phinstall a
try. This format change is going to create problems for me since I don’t
have a CD-ROM in most of the computers I’m supporting. I’m assuming once
I install on a computer using phinstall that I can archive that
information to a tar.F format,so I can upgrade other computers using
/etc/install like I did before. Is this true, or something that is no

The change to tarx was done for all released version archives for QNX4 back
All user with the QNX4 upgrade CD (June2000) will have phinstall. If you do
not have this CD contact your QNX sales rep.
Note: You do not need to be running photon to use the installer, simply
start phinstall from the command line (i.e. /cd0/bin/phinstall)

The new 905 cards work fine under QNX4. What version of the driver
The new 905 cards with 4.25E (Net.ether905 → 4.24K) only ran at

I have 3x905 cards in my machine running the 424N version of the driver,

Are you using any command line options to the driver at startup?
This is not the same 424N driver that I have. The file I have is dated
Jul 02 2002 and the size is 50310. I got this file from downloading a
beta version of 4.25G Jan 7 this year. The nice thing with this version

I just downloaded the newest 4.25G from QSSL and it is in a tarx format.
This format is not something I’m familiar with. Seems very odd to me that
QSSL would change the format of the updates this long after QNX4 was
released. Did QSSL assume all of the QNX 4 users have this CD installer?
