OS image filesystem max size ?


Is there a size max for OS image filesystem build by mkifs ?
I use QNX 6.3 PE on x86 taget (64Mo ram/64Mo CF) and it seems that around 3Mo it is the size max of the image. If upper the system does not start but the loader seems to load the image in memory.

Thanks for ideas :wink:

Look at:


You should use an image file less than 3 Mb with the most important drivers and aplications that you will need.

Then, you need to create an embedded filesystem. You can do it with mkefs or you can just copy the other drivers and applications in the QNX filesystem that you have created in your Compactflash (this is what I use to do).

I hope it helps.
