I’m pretty knowledgable of QNX4, and just recently we’ve been looking at
possibly moving over to QNX RTP. I’ve been playing around and so far I
really love it. There are a few questions I have though.
When the unit starts up, it detects a /dev/hd1, yet there is only 1 hard
disk on the unit. My setup is 1 hard drive on Primary Master, and a CDROM
drive at Secondary Slave. I have an unused swap bay for the Secondary
Master with nothing in it (no drive in the bay). Any idea why this might
Attaching a USB mouse is the only way I can get mouse support. I start
devu-uhci and devu-mouse, but I’m not sure how to get it to be used. I know
from QNX4 that you’d have Input start and use /dev/usbmouse0, but I’m not
sure what the equivalent of that would be in QNX6, and where the startup of
that would be. Is it in one of the startup scripts or in the boot image?
And if it’s in the boot image, is there any way of knowing which one of the
boot build files was used for your own unit?
Is there by any chance a vedit port to QNX6? I’ve used vedit for 2 years
and I’ve gotten so used to it that I’d like to use it in QNX6 if possible.
I’ve used ped for now, and that is very similar to a Windows edit utility.
PS: I was really happy when I went to install QNX6 and it was SOO easy to
do, it took 5 minutes tops and worked beautifully right away (except no
mouse so I couldn’t use the shelf, but I don’t use a mouse in QNX4 either
and know how to move around without one).
