I have a data disk with QNX3.21 format, it can be mounted in QNX3.21 OS.
I want to copy the files in the QNX3.21 format disk to a DOS format disk, however, I can not mount a DOS disk in QNX3.21 OS.
So, I try to mount the QNX3.21 format disk on a QNX6.1 OS machine, I try “mount -t qnx4 fd0 /mnt/floppy” and “mount -t qnx2 fd0 /mnt/floppy” , but failed.
1 How to mount a QNX3.21 format disk on QNX6.1 OS?
2 How to mount a DOS format disk on QNX3.21 OS?
Where can I download the QNX4 OS software?
QNX4 is NOT free. You have to buy it.
QNX 2 (even it is called 3.21, it is actually QNX2) has some DOS supports.
so looks like DFS will work for you.
I run dfs under QNX3.21 OS , the command line is :
$ dfs start a=1
the system prompt: “Unable to create DFS administrator task–Administraor Program not found”
pls kindly tell me whether I must have the root administrator right to run the utility dfs.
And how to get the administrator right?
dfs is a licensed product. maybe you don’t have the license installed?
there is a free mtools that people use to read/write DOS floppies in other Unix. see this for details: mtools.linux.lu/
JC has ported mtools to QNX2 and you can download it from quics:
