I just installed QNX Rtp v 6.1.0 on my PC.
When booting for the first time (using a
floppy disk), I was stuck in the video
settings screen with neither kbd nor mouse
I started into text mode (by pressing F2)
and the kbd worked ok. Since then the system
boots to the login (640x480x16). I can log
in but the mouse still does not seem to work.
I seem not to be able to navigate the windows

with Photon. If no, please check if your serial driver is running (ask ls

Create in /etc/config/trap/ directory file input.[your_host_name] and
write correct command line string in it:
kbd fd -d/dev/kbd msoft fd -d/dev/ser1
Because I don’t know exactly version of QNX you are using now, copy this
file to /etc/system/trap directory.
