I’ve got the PE version 6.2.1A.
What I’ve done so far is create a image with the QNX generic flash driver.
And create a boot disk with this image on it. I then go to the PC-680
board and I boot the board from the floppy drive. I now have the board
with the QNX image in memory. I then run the devf-generic driver with the
devf-generic -s SSD1,4M
and it seems to work ok. I do a pidin and I see the process called
devf-generic running and there are 3 threads assocaited with this process.
I’m now trying to use flashctl to mount this flash directory onto the
/dev/mem directory. Maybe I’m doing this incorrectly, but the /dev/mem is
4MB, so I’m assuming that this is the flash disk. Unfortunately, flashctl
seems to not like what I’m doing because I can’t seem to mount this drive.
Basically I have a file in /dev called mem which is 4MB. I’m assuming that
this is the flash memory and I’m trying to mount it on /dev/mem using
flashctl. I’ll try different mount points, in the mean time. Once I
create the mount point, I need to format this drive and make it bootable.
Can anyone give me some pointers?

I’m a newbie to the QNX world, and I’m trying to create an image to put
PC-680 card. I know how to build an image and how to create a boot disk
Unless you bought the SE or PE version you won’t be able to build images,
that your case?
My question is, what are some of the minimum binaries that I need to run
flash disk on the board (SSD1) and how do I transfer it from the floppy
to the SSD1 drive so that every time I boot up the SBC it will start in
QNX RTOS instead of the ROM_DOS environment.
Thanks in advance,
