Ok, I found the official disks we got from QNX and it turns out we have
6.2.1 SE and PE. I looked throught the respositories for SE, and found
the SE disk also had
but no devn drivers in that section
the PE disk also had
THIS file contained devn-i82544.so!!!
WHY IS AN EXECUTABLE FOR A NETWORK DRIVER ONLY AVAIABLE ON THE PROFESSIONAL
VERSION OF THE OPERATING SYSTEM???
I don’t have such an exotic system. It is an off the shelf dell optiplex
gx-260. And the built in ethernet uses this chipset.
I can see why the driver development kit (source) might not be in the low
cost versions of the operating system, but why would the driver executables
be left out??? I would expect the latest batch of driver executables to be
available for even the non-commercial version.

I don’t see it. I will try to look over the install disk again (when I can
find it… I know it was around here somewhere…). There was only one
in release 6.21 SE, right?? At least thats all I remember seeing.
This machine has several versions on it, from 6.1 non-commercial to 6.2
I had installed them as root.qfs files in the fat32 partition that windows
sees, and either select which to boot from config.sys/autoexec.bat menu
(using loadqnx.sys from config.sys, or loadsys loadqnx.sys from
autoexec.bat) or modify altboot and directory names manually.
Since this is a new machine (they took my old one away, and upgraded me),
figured I had the best chance with the newest version, so I was lookint at
Should I download a copy of what is on the website instead of using the
6.21 SE that QNX sent us?

I looked at the adapter with pci -v:
I went to the enum files in /etc/system/enum/devices/net, and …
It shows up in the list, and calls for the driver:
I can’t seem to find that driver on the system after the install.
Is the file missing???
Is the name wrong???
If the file /lib/dll/devn-i82544.so is not present, then there must
be some kind of packaging/installation problem.
Note that there was a problem with the driver whereby an error
message would be printed even though the driver was running
correctly. This error message can be ignored. Run ‘nicinfo’
or ifconfig -a to see if the driver is actually running.
What version of the OS are you running, BTW?
