Fdisk Question

There are three types of QNX partitions supported, 77, 78, and 79. What if I
want to create 4 QNX partitions. What could I use as the fourth type as
duplicates aren’t allowed? Would a type of 80 be OK??

Thanks,
Paul

Actually, any arbitrary partition number is fine. I use one of type 3 to
keep my home dir. That way I don’t have to back it up when I reinstall.
The only difference is that you’ll have to explicitly tell mount what type
it is, ie mount -t qnx4 /dev/hd0t3 /home/kewarken.

Note also that duplicates are fine - they’ll just be enumerated at startup
as /dev/hd0t79.1 and so on. The reason I use the type 3 partition is
because the installer insists on there being only one type 79 partition.

cheers,

Kris
