make not installed??


I just installed QNX Neutrino Service Pack 1 and I went to compile my code from an earlier version of QNX, and I get the error:

/bin/sh: make: not found

I’ve been google-ing this like crazy and can’t find why this is happening. I’m burning the .iso for Service Pack 3 to see if anything changes, but I doubt it. Any suggestions??



It sounds like something got messed up during the install. Were there any errors reported?

If you do a ‘echo $PATH’ what you do see listed?

make is located in /usr/qnx630/host/qnx6/x86/usr/bin/

You can check that directory to see if it’s there. My guess is that it is and your PATH doesn’t have /usr/qnx630… in it. Maybe in QNX 6.3.0 pre SP1 make was located someplace else and you just need to now add this directory to your path.



I thought that could be the problem as well. My path is as follows…not that it helps…


But QNX Neutrino lets you search the whole computer and there is no record of “make”

I have installed QNX 3 times now and I still get nothing. I’m really just out of ideas. I don’t understand why it wouldn’t have it…everything else seems to be in its place…idk…


as already guessed by Tim, there is no path to the development tools.

try “find / -name make” to see if make is installed on the system.

BTW: 6.3.0 SP1 is quite old - I recommend to use SP3 at least.


Thanks all, but I think I found the problem…apparently I need QNX Momentics as well to have development tools. So Neutrino is essentially useless by itself I guess…

Thanks anyways

Useless for development, yes.

As useless for development as Windows?
