Launch packager filesystem as well. Or mount qnxbase.qfs, it is under /boot/… sorry don’t
remember exactly subdirectory. They are in that image.

Just run it ‘sh -c myapp’? Include sh or esh into boot image.

mount /boot/fs/qnxbase.qfs /bin

Set path to /bin as well or use ‘/bin/ls’, for instance, to use ‘ls’ from shell.
