I’m not sure if the physical hard drives are identical. Moving hardware
As for the QNX CD, I view the CD either in Windoze or QNX (via /fs/cd0) and
both show uppercase directory and file names. When I attempt to install,
I have been copying files from the CD over the past few days, manually
everything to lowercase (oh, joy), creating new CDs and attempting
I finally got a CD from which I can install the base operating system, but
repository somehow is screwed up. It only allows me to install JED and
desktop wallpaper (whoo-hoo!). I am currently in the process of downloading
patchB from QNXSTART in 17 pieces, which I hope to piece together and then
install my development system.
Needless to say, I’m not very impressed at this point. I am a commercial
using QNX for a radio base station which we will be selling by the dozen
and which we hope to have support for from QNX. Why doesn’t QNX support
previous versions of the QNX operating system? Are you taking the windoze
route and putting your customers on Bill Gate’s perpetual upgrade
If so, I’m outta here!
Sorry for sounding bitter, but I have lost 3 weeks now trying to rebuild a

an FTP site for me to download an old ISO image, or at least that the CDs
ship me are in the correct format. And I paid for my development system!!

All the filenames are in uppercase, thus prohibiting me from performing
How are you “viewing” the CD? Are you in Windows when you see this issue?
I have another machine in the office running 6.0 Patch C. It would seem
that I should be able to backup the entire filesystem from one
and restore onto the other, but when I tried this this morning, the
process gave me a bunch of errors (I did a “tar” of the 6.0C system
and attempted to extract it onto a 6.0A system with no success).
What kind of errors did you get? If the harddrives are identical, you
mount the target drive into the host computer and raw copy the drive using
