Video Training now Completed and Available! Order now :-)

Our video training product is now completed!

for further information.

Video training is a low-cost alternative to instructor-led training, and
allows your seasoned developers and new-hires to get up to speed quickly,
without the need to travel. Our video training course is an ideal way of
learning the concepts of processes, threads, realtime programming, device
drivers, interprocess communications, and other aspects of systems-level
programming for the QNX 6 (Neutrino) operating system – in short, everything
you need for your project or evaluation. Video training is also an
effective preview or review for our instructor-led training seminars.

The course retails for US$995 and includes 8 hours 47 minutes of VHS video
on 8 VHS tapes, a student workbook, and a copy of our “Getting Started with
QNX Neutrino 2” book, with additional student license sets (which consist
of the workbook and the book) being US$295 each. Quantity discounts and
site licenses are also available. Shipping and handling is extra.
We also offer annual update subscriptions to protect your investment.

Please specify NTSC, PAL, or SECAM when ordering.

Hiya all…

Sorry if this message appears twice, I posted it last night and I can’t see
it on the newsgroup tonight…

I installed QNX on my system last year, and had no probs. Now the hard
drive is full, and so I have installed a Western Digital WDC WD400BB -
32AUA1 ( 40GB ). Since then, QNX doesn’t want to play the game, not even
when the old hard drive is removed and I start a fresh system on the new
hard drive, or even when the new hard drive is completely removed from the

Western Digital drives use a system called “EZ-Drive” to install the drive
and allow the bios to recognise large drives. Does anyone know of a way to
make this compatible with QNX? Even with the new hard drive removed, the
EZ-Drive resides in the BIOS.

My QNX boot runs something like this :

Unable to allocate resource : Resource temporarily unavailable.
Range check failed (IO) - Dev 7010 - Vend 8086 - Class 10180 - Addr ffa0
size 10
Range check failed (IO) - Dev 7020 - Vend 8086 - Class c0300 - Addr ff40
size 20
Range check failed (IO) - Dev 7010 - Vend 8029 - Class 10ec - Addr ff80 size
Detected EIDE - Scanning for devices
This can take up to 30 seconds…

After this, the system completely hangs.

From windows device manager, I was able to obtain the following which is
relevant to the above addresses :

I/O address Device
ffa0 - ffa7 Primary IDE controller ( dual fifo )
ffa0 - ffaf Intel 82371SB PCI Bus Master IDE Controller
ffa8 - ffaf Secondary IDE controller ( dual fifo )
ff40 - ff5f Intel 82371SB PCI to USB Universal Host Controller
ff80 - ff9f Realtek RTL8029 Ethernet Adapter and Compatibles

I was using QNX 4 previously, but downloaded the 29MB self extracting
version of QNX 6.1 a few nights agoand still no luck.

Any help greatly appreciated.
