I’m trying to install QNX 6.2, but it claims that there is no room for a QNX
System is 800MHz Intel, 512MB RAM, 80GB IDE HDD.
If I display the partion table I get:
Partition Type OS Size
F1 12 dos 20002M
F2 12 dos 18002M
F3 5 ext 30004M
F4 131 linux 8307M
F5 Skip partition deletion
I’d rather not delete a partion, but simply install QNX into it. Ideally I
would like to install into /dev/hda9, which exists in my extended linux
partition. I also have some space in my extended partition, but the QNX
installer doesn’t see this. Does QNX have to exist in a primary partition??
Would willing to try /dev/hda2 if my partition table doesn’t get screwed up
(I have a total of 17 partitions). See fdisk output:
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/hda1 1 2550 20482843+ c Win95 FAT32 (LBA)
/dev/hda2 2551 4845 18434587+ c Win95 FAT32 (LBA)
/dev/hda3 4846 8670 30724312+ 5 Extended
/dev/hda4 8671 9729 8506417+ 83 Linux
/dev/hda5 * 4846 4858 104391 83 Linux
/dev/hda6 4859 5495 5116671 83 Linux
/dev/hda7 5496 6132 5116671 83 Linux
/dev/hda8 6133 6769 5116671 83 Linux
/dev/hda9 6770 6896 1020096 e Win95 FAT16 (LBA)
/dev/hda10 6897 7393 3992121 83 Linux
… … … …
Also, after I am told ‘No room for a QNX partition’ in the menu I am given
F1- …, F2- …, F3 - install as a file into another os (Windows/Linux).
Which refers me to documentation that I cannot find. But it sounds like
this may be less risky/easier.
How would I go about this?
The ISO image I downloaded has only windows executable files, and setup.exe
hung when run under Wine.
Is there a place where I could download an image that I could simply dd to
/dev/hda9? I would then try to boot via the Grub loader.
