Installation Problem

I have just tried to install the RTP on a Dell Inspiron notebook. This
machine has a QNX partition that I had previously installed the conference
CD on. This worked fine.

When I got the latest CD I decided to install into the FAT partition under
Windows NT. My C drive is FAT and my D drive is NTFS. The installation was
successful and I created a boot diskette as suggested.

When I boot from the diskette I get the following message:

You have more than one .diskroot file which wants to mount at /pkgs/base

  1. /fs/hd0-dos/Program Files/qnx/boot/fs/qnxbase.qfs
  2. /fs/hd0-qnx4/boot/fs/qnxbase.qfs

Which do you wish to mount?

I select 1

Next I get a similar message for root.qfs

I select 1

Then I get a how bunch of Warning: Can’t find package
[qssl/os2.1-beta1/core/MANIFEST etc messages followed by Unable to access
packages.

The same thing happens if I chose 2 to select the files from my QNX
partition.

Any sugesstions?

Can I install the latest CD directly into my QNX partition? If so how?

I would also like to know why the Windows install failed.

Thanks

Not with the CD, however you can download the qnxrtp.tar.F from get.qnx.com,
install that & then install everything from the CD.

I’ll let someone else field this one.
