there’s bug in QNX installer which does not let you install onto EIDE drive
from SCSI CD. Basically, it assumes installation CD and target HD are served
by the same driver and if it’s not the case, install into partition will
Install into FAT32 partition should work. Your descriptions lacks some
details, do you get that ‘devc-con’ problem booting using Windows-based
install or partition install? You should try to install 6.1 into Windows and
boot using boot floppy (or using installation CD, the 6.1 has such option).
If that does not work, try using non-DMA boot image.
Your keyboard/mouse won’t be automatically detected, with current release
you’ll need to do some manual configuration to get them working. If you can
get to login prompt (disable Photon using boot options) that should be easy
enough to do. I believe next release should handle USB automatically, if
that all is too troublesome you may want to wait, it should not be long.
Kim mentions amiga and beos so should be farely able to handle the
little bit of trouble LOL.
on a side note Igor, i`v not seem anyone report this peticular problem
v mentioned before iv got both win98se RTP hardfiles and partitions
from (see my uname -a elsewere) way back and had serveral problems
upgrading to RTP6.1 as per everyone else, however heres one that you might
have an idea why its happening.
jetway j-542b super7 motherboard ( http://www.jetway.com.tw )
128 meg ram
dma33 20gig Eide (primary master)
mitsumi cr-4804TE (secondary master)
i remember that theres a problem if you have a CD(rw) on the
secondary slave and i assume primary slave too? in that rtp6.1
wouldn`t see the cd after booting but i never shaw a report
were it were it fails on primarys.
the funny thing is though IF i boot from the rtp6.1 cd disk i can see
the cd0 in /devs i think it was (LOL perhaps its just my amiga
devs: sticking in my mind and i cant check right now as im in
WinUAE (not RTP-UAE until someone fixes the uae-0.8.17+ to compile)
UAE-0.7.6 compiles fine but real slow and 0.8.* has all the nice
JIT/native gfx card hack/TCP emulation ect)
but werever rtp raw mounts all the devices anyway.
if i boot (XOSL4.1) to a fresh rtp6.1 hardfile or partition i cant
see any cd* in the system (/dev ect) and i had to mount the raw
rtp6.1 ISO image just to install the full developer tools and Xphoton.
i`m wondering if its a Ali HD controller chipset and/or AMD thing in
the latest (fixed rtp6.1) or other bug than sliped through the net ?.
(just for reference)
i think this jetway board has an older ali chipset rev-a or b as
the newer win98se drivers dont install on this reporting a rev-c
or higher needed to install, aliIDE165 (M5229.mpd) works fine.
all the older RTP`s phx beta<>6.0 worked and auto mounted the cdrw
as cd reader without problems so i assume a bug.
do qnx have a report of this secondary master cdr(w) problem
and is it fixed and in the back room i wonder ?.

Please help me! Sniff
I’ve beenusing QNX at my school for some time now and I’m really
how smooth it tuns un those slow pc’s…
So from time to time i’ve been trying to install QNX on my private
pc at home but I have newer succeeded!!
The first versions of QNX gave me about 3 pages error-messages and
to boot after installation… Now with 6.1.0 it has come down to just
“unable to start devc-con”… Usually I’ve been installing QNX on my
partitions because I got tired of re-partitioning/resizing my HD evry
wanted to try, but I have also installed QNX to a seperate partition
the same results…
The funny thing is that i CAN get it to show me some gui (graphic card
screen) if I make it boot the OS from the CD-ROM (F2 option) but then
faced with the “USB mouse & keyboard not working” problem…
My system is :
Asus P3X4 mainboard (via apollo 133a pro chipset + udma 66)
IBM DTLA 40,2 gig HD with QNX on the E drive (fat32) and Win2000 on D
MS Natural pro Keyboard (USB HUB)
BooomSlang 1000 USB mouse
ASUS V7700 Geforce 2 GTS pure (VBA out only)
Creative Live! Value soundcard
Adaptec 2940 SCSI with " devices (CD-R + DVD drive) connected
As far as I know my system should be on the compatible list…
Is there something I am missing? Please help… I can’t stand Windows
longer and ( my beloved) BeOS got sold to Palm, who’s gonna kill it
