.boot reverse ?

Hello everybody ,

i am almost new to QNX and have a problem. I try to set up a diskless PC
booting with fd .
I have an existing Pc booting with a flashide device. In this .boot file there
is a certain script that i need to understand which files to start in which order.

I can see the name of the script when I cat /proc/boot/start-up

My question is now can Iextract this script from the .boot file ? Is there a way to reverse the mkifs command ?
I know that the script is in the .boot file and not on the filesystem of the server.

Thank you a lot



You can view what is in the .boot file using dumpIfs.
qnx.com/developers/docs/6.3. … mpifs.html

This does not show the contents on the startup script.
You can see thit by simply 'cat’ing the scripy:
cat /proc/boot/start-up
It tends to print everyting on one line as CR characters are not stored (I assume), but you will get the gist of what is in the script.

Also if it is a standard QNX release, the file used to create the boot image is supplied.
From memory these reside in /boot/something
See the docs: qnx.com/developers/docs/6.3. … mkifs.html
qnx.com/developers/docs/6.3. … onfig.html

thats exactly what i did search …

Thank you a lot !!
