I have to start QNX disabling network drivers (otherwise QNX hangs at start).

If I try to configure my ethernet card after boot QNX hangs (and I have to use power-off/power-on).

I tried io-net -dns83815

Working; video PS/2 mouse

Not working: Ethernet Sound USB Mouse

Not able to see: mpeg avi

I know that QNX is not made to be a Desktop OS but I’d like at least to have a working Ethernet card
(not to have a really standalone laptop) and a USB Mouse.

For multimedia I can always switch to Linux or BeOS …

Of course I appreciate any help …


to use USB mouse, try:

io-usb -duhci -dehci
io-hid -dusb
devi-hid mouse
