I installed QNXRTP on an old P-233MMX with a S3 based #9 Motion 711 PCI
video card under QNXRTP 6.1. When trying out video modes during the
install, all of the S3 driver modes produced no visible mouse cursor, so I
booted with the standard VGA16 driver. I then loaded up the video mode
configuration dialog, changed to the S3 driver, checked the “hardware
cursor” checkbox, and things worked fine. It might be useful to expose
this option in the installer, or default this checkbox on when you detect
the #9 Motion 711 PCI card.
To be honest, the install still went smoother than the average Linux
install. The QNX package installer is much nicer than similar Linux
utilities and the bootup process is faster.
The only major performance issue I have so far is that scrolling with
the mouse wheel in Voyager is quite slow. I can scroll “10 clicks” and it
takes Voyager quite a while to catch up with the scrolling (~20 seconds of
flickering). I’m using a standard Microsoft Intellimouse.
