Results with 6.1 beta.

Well, after screewing around with various things I finally got rid
of that pesky Linux swap partition and reinstalled QNX, giving it
the whole drive.

The good.

It found my SCSI controller and CD-ROM so it could install.
I get lots of nice colors onscreen.
It finally has GUI tools for mouse and clock settings.
The collapsible shelf categories.

The not so good.

Trying to install the games and DOOM off the CD fails.
(tar exits with an error)

I get an “unable to init dll” error after it finds “aha2”
yet it finds the CD-ROM drive. (Uh, what dll can’t it init?)
Voyager does not appear to like low RAM (24megs) situations.
(Wheee, I get to test how QNX likes a power off reboot.)

Apparently it has completely missed the 3Com 509B ISA NIC
in the port replicator which I think most of the linux boot
disks I had tried could find. (But not a one ever found the
Adaptec SCSI.) Netmanager terminates with exit code 3.
(Ack! Cryptic Macintosh style numbered error codes. Is a
“crib sheet” provided?)

The collapsible shelf categories which don’t automatically
save their state. (Unless there is a user setting buried
somewhere.)

No evidence that it ever has looked at the PCMCIA, certainly
hasn’t found the Eiger Labs (Fujitsu) soundcard, which I
didn’t expect since it uses some oddball ESS chip, or the
Dell/Motorola Montana 33.6 modem.

Clicking Terminal on the shelf does… nothing at all but
mash the button.

Help isn’t getting anywhere because it uses Voyager, which
is either hanging or just taking its own sweet time to
load up.

Three attempts to use the Windows installer caused Win95B
to freeze on this system.

I guess that is why its a Beta. :slight_smile: Of course this is only
a Pentium 75 with 24megs RAM. Dell Latitude XPi P75D with
a UK keyboard.

Does anyone know if the BeOS 5.03 boot floppy recognizes
the older ISA type Adaptec SCSI controllers? :wink: I like
trying to install operating systems on “difficult” systems.
Just for kicks I made the four(!) Win 2k Pro boot floppies
and was not informed until after the final disk was done
loading that I had only 24 megs RAM and that Win2kPro
requires at least 32 megs. (Which I knew.) Bloody #@%%^
stupid to not check something like that the very first
thing, just to avoid wasting time if nothing else.

Unless i missed something at this time 6.1 is a private beta and problem
should be reported though the proper channel

Isn’t installing W2K a waste of time period. :slight_smile:

Someone saw my posts about how I couldn’t get prior versions of QNX
to install so they sent me a URL and login to download 6.1. I deleted
the e-mail after downloading the ISO and making a CD.

“Someone” probably won’t do that again if you’re to advertise it every time,
lol :wink:

Has 6.1 been officially released? What is the URL to download ISO for 6.1?

OK, OK. I didn’t see the word ‘beta’ in the subject line.

When will 6.1 be released?

An oriental joke:
An old man told shah he can count how many stars are on the sky if he
gets a dinner right now. Shah intrigued gives him dinner and afterwards
impatiently asks how soon he can count. The old man says he can count
those stars as fast as shah can count how many hairs are in the beard of
his donkey.

That could serve as expanded version of ‘real soon now’ :wink:
