I am experiencing a similar problem as noted by
http://qdn.qnx.com/articles/jul0601/upgrade.html, except that
I have the added error message about “/.diskroot file for root
not found” then the devc-con problem.
By specifying F3 on the input boot options menu, I can get RTP
running (sort of), and then start photon.
I followed Steve Tomkins instructions on how to add the upgrade
package, but after I ran the “rm” command, and rebooted, I still
got the problem and had to input the boot options again, but used
F3 instead to get up and running. Started photon, and downloaded the
upgradefix qpr file. However, after it finished downloading, I got an error
message from the package manager saying “Error while loading
/etc/system/package/packages no element found at line 1”.
Then pkgmanager shut down.
This kinda leads me to believe that the qpr file is corrupt because if I start
to download the file, then cancel the download, Voyager will still try and
load the package manager, and it gives me the same error (like its a partial
file). I’m downloading over a LAN, so it shouldn’t be having connectivity
Ok, more research… I can’t even run package manager on its own anymore.
After performing the “rm /fs/*/etc/system/package/packages” command.
Ok, here’s a question… I just noticed, on Steve’s instructions, there is a period
after packages and the quote mark that I missed before. What did I end up
deleting without the period there. If that is necessary, you might want to update
that article to bring attention to that.
