Package Mgr Install Software from QNX

I installed RTP from the downloaded CD image, onto a dedicated primary
partition. (Intel architecture)

I’m now trying to get patches, using the package manager’s “Install
Software from QNX”, but I keep getting the error
Couldn’t connect to the repository:
install.qnx.com/repository

repository/repository.qrm: No such file or directory.

Is there a problem with the site ? If not, is there anything I can do
here to fix up whatever may be wrong with my packages…

Thanks

(Partial answer to own question)

I decided to re-install from scratch, adding packages one by one from
the CD and paying more attention after each one.

After installing the Neutrino Dev 2.1 / GNU Compiler Collection / Dev
Tools, I got errors on files ar, ranlib and derivatives (~6-8 files in
all) (errors like “couldn’t lstat … file name too long”). After
installing Neutrino Dev 2.1 / GNU Compiler Collection / Target Files, I
got the same errors on libstdc++

I removed those two packages (Dev Tools and Target Files) and
re-installed them from the WWW repository. ar & ranlib were OK, but
libstdc++ still had the problem. I removed Target Files again.

But now I had access to the Package Manager upgrade; after installing
that, it restarted itself and got a bunch of other patches on its own.
libstdc++ is now OK. More importantly for me, I can now use Phindows to
access that Neutrino box.


I’m relating this in case it could be useful to someone else. I admit
I’m now a bit leery of installing packages, as this is the 3rd time we
went from a working configuration to something that had more problems
than before the “upgrade”. The time before this, I installed the patches
and wound up with a machine that would boot, but could no longer start
io-net.

(Continuing story)

After getting the upgrades, and recompiling software that makes use of
the Mig4NTO library, it could no longer find libmig4nto.so. We “fixed”
this problem by removing all patches under Development / QNX4 Migration.

And ddd complains that it can’t find libXp.so. Still working on that
one.

And while pterm now works in Phindows (my original impetus to go down
this path), the Photon desktop menu bars don’t follow the Phindows
resizes.

Groan.

You shouldn’t be discussing Beta Patch A related issue here.
Could make some people not too happy…

I guess now you know why Patch A hasn’t been release yet :wink:

Ah, the joys of being “first”… I suggest you wear a helment, it’ll at least
prevent serious injury from banging your head against the wall so much :wink:

OK, I’ll shut up now. Didn’t mean to seem too negative. But, all this
stuff was installed following an innocent looking “Package Installer
Update”, be warned. To anyone who hasn’t tried RTP yet, don’t let any of
my messages detract you: just install the CD and enjoy. To anyone who
has installed the upgrade, and has similar problems, I hope some of this
has been of some help. If not, just ignore the wasted bandwith.

This one was just LD_LIBRARY_PATH, which for some reason was no longer
getting set. Once set to include the X11 libs, it ran again.

OK, I’ll shut up now.

You should NOT shut up, you should speak in the right place. If you have
access to Pre-Patch A and it’s all clean and legal, you should
be able to report problem through the provided channels.

If it’s of come conform I have the same problem as you (phindows) :wink:
