I installed QNX RTP4 on my thinkpad 240 with Win2000. My computer has an
external PS/2 Natural Keyboard, an external 15’’ display and a serial
mouse. The keyboard (both internal and external) has a french AZERTY
Here is the problem : after Photon has started, I cannot use the
keyboard anymore. If I exit from Photon, the command line reads:
devi-hirun kbd fd -d/dev/kbd ps2 kb -2 msoft -3 fd -d /dev/ser1
Then I have to power the laptop down.
I have checked out in Windows, the defaults for keyboard are fine: IRQ
1, Port 0x60 (also 0x64)
I tried to change /etc/system/trap/.KEYBOARD.administrator from
fr_FR_102.kbd to en_US_101.kbd but it was the same. I tried to
disconnect most devices: external display, external keyboard and then
restart QNX. All the same.
Here is how I installed QNX :
I got the install program from a CDROM in a magazine. I logged in as
Administrator and I inserted it in the drive. When it ran, I chose
Install QNX. Since I was running Win2000, I had to create a boot disk.
I selected the third (primary) FAT32 partition for QNX. I chose
french/french from the language/keyboard selector. As advised by the
magazine, this setting was no help: the boot floppy and Photon are still
in English, and it starts as if I was using an US keyboard layout
(QWERTY). Not easy to type the password.
I also asked to have no graphical shell at startup, as I have unusual
hardware I wanted no problem with display modes. The display works fine.
I can use the mouse with no problem once Photon has started.
HEEEELP!!! please, if you can.
I am fond of this thing and I can’t get it to work. Damn!
