I cannot understand that reasoning!
Somewhere in this NG

The answer to your second question is - this is just the way Momentics has
been packaged. The idea was to make it simple to install. Many people
complained that with passed releases it was not clear what was needed to be
installed to develop for a specific platform. So now if you what to develop
for the ARM processor you install Momentics for ARM and you have everything
you need, in one easy operation. As for Mozilla, this is part of Momentics
so it is installed when Momentics is installed. There is no way, at the
present time, to remove parts of Momentics. It is possible to “hack” it but
its not a recommended option.

I can understand that reasoning. But, how important to upgrades and patches
are the photon games ( why are these even bundled)?
So, photon games are also part of Momentics and there is no way to remove part of Momentics. But
Rodney is right, if you’re using workaround as

Erase repository/content.tgz (or rebuild it)
I bet you will unable to upgrade all stuff, not only the photon games which you dislike for some
reason. The upgrade package will look for that bundle (b-os-6.2.0-*) and will not let you to
install upgrade. Still there is hacker’s workaround, but seems this NG is not appropriate place to
share this knowledge And, of course, it’s unsupported and unrecommended way.
I think the first thing for patch A should be to remove this huge “all in one” bundle and allow to
user freely manipulate with actually required packages. But I’m realist and I believe I will watch
funny pictures during installation of next release of QNX. Even Linux was unable to bypass this way
But hey, even Windows allows you to select components of OS during installation and later
(Control Pannel → Add/Remove Programs, Windows setup Tab), doesn’t it? Of course, homewife just
can click on “Next”/“Ok” buttons and gets quite working system in an hour or so. The next point,
the installation procedure and package system was evaluated as good (better than WinCE&VxWorks) by
Dedicated Systems in QNX6.1. Am I wrong? Seems to me someone at QSS just want “improve” down the
streigthes of QNX. And last, I dare to make my free translation of rule (sorry, the bundle of
these rules is known by me in russian language, so my translation might be quite far from original
If you’re developing the system which is such easy and simple that even fool is able to use the
system, be aware the only fools will use the system.
QNX is good system, this OS is interesting for professionals but not for homewifes. At least, I
never saw homewife who says “Wow, how exelent it’s architectured, how good is interface, how
reliable it is and it’s trully realtime OS…”, often I heard the question “And what’s good in
comparison to Windows?” And there is no need to answer the question, believe me.
I hope I will dead before homewifes will write software for embedded. Otherwise I will have to rid
of all wonders of technology and to be apiarist somewhere quite far from civilization.
Thank you everyone who reach the end.
