RTP 6.1 Upgrade/Installtion PROBLEMS

Hi,

I have been trying to Upgrade or Installe version 6.1 of RTP with absolutely
NO RESULTS.

  1. Upgrade problems
    I HAD version 6.0 working on a few stations and wanted to update to
    version 6.1 (What a mistake !!)
    I tried to install the update from the WWW repository and the reboot
    problems were as I have read
    in the news groups.
  • /. diskroot file for root not found on any filesystems
  • Starting with safe mode
  • Unable to locate devc-con

I have tried the solution in the developer article “QNX Upgrade Problems
for June 29 Release”
but I still cannot boot RTP!!

I downloaded the new version on CD ROM and made the CD. Tried the Update
from the CD
but the problems remain the same.

  1. New Installation
    Since I had the new CD, I decided to try a new installation. I booted
    inWindows and made
    the installation floppy.

I booted the machine and tried to installe 6.1. To my surprise my hard
disk could not be found.
This is strange since version 6.0 could find it !!!

I downloaded the ZIP file for the installation floppy and made a boot
floppy DMA image. To my surprise,
I was right back with the .diskroot and the devc-con problem but this
time from the floppy.

I have been using QNX from quite a few years now and I have never seen so
many bugs. I understand that
this version is free, but I have been teaching QNX for about 5 years and I
have never seen anything like this.
You are making yourself a BAD REPUTATION with this update. WHAT SHOULD I
TELL MY STUDENTS???


Hope you clean this up soon!!!

I had a similar experience when downloading and trying to upgrade from
6.0 to 6.1 - and then I got the CD. Reinstalled the 6.1. and now I am
content. The system is a bit slow on a P166 with EIDE but I can work
there …
