build file for CodeWarrior Nto...

Hi…

It is not obvious to me how to generate a build file using the latest
CodeWarrior and Nto 2.1 bundle package. I wonder if you could provide
some suggestions and/or guidance on this? Thanks.

Also, if we develop code using CodeWarrior and Nto 2.1 via the bundled
gcc compiler, this code would not be compatible with the latest rtp6.1
update, correct? This means that we have to build a .boot file using
the package provided in the bundle. Is this correct?

Thanks.

Best regards…

Miguel.

If your path is setup properly, you should be able to do it from
the DOS prompt → ‘mkifs -v BUILD_FILE IMAGE_FILE
There are help docs included in the bundle (html format).

Yes, that is correct, threre would be a problem between applications linked
against (GNU libs QNX RTP 2.11) and (Dinkum QNX RTP 6.1.x).

This means that we have to build a .boot file using

the package provided in the bundle. Is this correct?

Yes, that is correct.

Marcin

Thanks.

The mkifs command works from DOS. Thanks. However, I do have another
question:

with the codeWarrior bundle software, when we make an image file, is
this image limited to <600 KBytes (or was it 600 Mbytes?) as it was with
rtp6.0.x?? In other words, does my image have to be less than 600
KByte?

Thanks for your help on this. I appreciate it.

Depending on your target, in general you should be fine with images < 3Mb.
