I appreciate your patience. I've been trying to follow your instructions, but I keep running into dead ends. I'll describe what I've done in detail, and maybe there are some corrections to be made to help others in the future.
First about your link (download the source)“project” to community.qnx.com/sf/sfmain/do/home
It is not at all clear yet what “the source” means. I know what the pkgsrc tree looks like, as I’ve downloaded the latest public
release from netbsd.
In this tree, there is no source in it initially until you download it, which requires bmake, which I don’t have yet.
Are you refering to the pkgsrc tree as “the source?”.
There are four choices under pkgsrc project (Overview, Bootstrap, Packages, Forum).
Overview does a nice job of explaining the whole thing, and the (Downloads)“Here” guides you to the
same page as “Bootstrap”.
The “Pre-built” packages brings one to a tree, under which there are some pre-built packages, but I can’t find bmake among them.
“Packages” brings one to the same set of downloads.
I then started working on the instructions in the “Bootstrap” page. I might want to add, I didn’t quite understand what you meant the first time, and I found the “bootstrap” instructions at netbsd.org which of course don’t work.
Following instructions on this page, I downloaded and installed pkgsrc_qnxutil-0.8.tar.gz, no bmake here either.
I did not update procnto as there were no instructions on how to get a more up to date one than I have,
which is 6.3.2.
I followed the instructions to set up CS_LIBPATH and PATH.
The next instructions are to “Download pkgsrc with QNX diffs”. There is nothing explaining where I would get this from.
There is a link to the “repository layout”. This page gives a hierarchical access to the pkgsrc tree. I did not find a way to download pkgsrc with QNX diffs here. I did find at the leaves of the tree a way to make a diff for any two versions that are in the tree, but this would need to be done a file at a time.
It’s obvious to me now that this last step is crutial. I found this out by following the next steps and running ./bootstrap.
So, I’m still nowhere as far as being able to download anything but a pre-built package. I’d like to help out, but I’ll need more info.
