I can’t say for sure about your Highpoint UDMA66 controller, but the
RtP doesn’t work with the Promise Ultra66.
I have a BP6. We don’t support the Highpoint controller.
I personally called them on the phone and was told to simply
request engineering docs via email. The didn’t answer the emails
If you put a standard hard drive on the primary `standard’ IDE interface,
you can install to a partition there, and then use the CMOS boot
order options to boot into QNX. A bit of a pain, but it does
I boot between Win98, Win2000Pro and linux on a BP6 without any problems
at all. If QNX doesn’t support UDMA66 then quite frankly I can’t be
bothered to use it at all.
Hmmm, thats a shame (really), i guess your not really an adventurous
type that likes to try new things, but then you say you at least boot
Linux so perhaps you are, or at least want to be.
you do realise this first RTP release IS a Beta release that needs
a LITTLE time to settle ?, at least in any fair minded persons view.
i was doing to ask you what you find interesting about this Beta RTP
release, but on re-reading your post it would seem that as of yet,
you havent even tryed to install a copy, so i guess you arn`t in any
valid position to give your comments in that regard.
perhaps in the future when QSSL or some 3rd party developers have
ported the right drivers for your posific x86 kit you might try
installing FREE RTP and giving it a reasonable chance, and perhaps
even impress you enough to put your hand in your pocket and pay for
some of the vast 3rd party products that are sure to come to this
platform in the future.
you (the general reader) might be wondering why i
m sure about these 3rd partys, the simplest answer i can give (without breaking NDAs)
is to tell you and the new readers that we the
Phoenix Developers Consortium have been working in the background for some considerable
even before this public Beta release, our membership were helping to
shape the alpha/beta RTP and will continue to do our part to help our
membership (which include QSSL/QNX and later amiga BTW) in the future.
even before the Free RTP release, our membership included a vast
collection of 3rd party amiga developers that made that platform what
it was in its hayday, and hopefully shall do the same for the new
platforms we as Phoenix and our growing membership embrace in the future.
Phoenix membership and partners are growing by the day, every day
we are seeing many BeOS, Linux, QNX, OS/2, even windows 3rd partys
ask to become Phx members, these people are many and varied, from
members of large corporations to the one man bedroom coder of old,
all these people (and more) are seen by Phx as valid and valued
with very little exeption, these people are bringing something of value
with them, weather thats a high profile product that everyone knows, or
a willingness to learn and/or help do their part to shape new makets
for the membership and our Phoenix partners as a whole.
Phx is about finding ways of working together, encurageing partner
co-operation, crossing platform boundrys, and much more besides.
