I discovered yesterday that QNX was free for educational purposes, so I gave it a try. Liked the look and feel of the Live CD so I installed it.
The next step I wanted to take was to get my DWL-AG660 PCMCIA Card working. I discovered the network stack on foundry27 which apparently offered support for Atheros 5212 chipsets. I followed the instructions on the webpage to build the stack from source, and it failed about one minute into compiling, even tough I followed the instructions on howto build a override qmake file stub (whatever that is, anyway).
This could of course be due to me getting the current version, but since there’s no internet availabe (QNX also doesn’t like my xl card) on the target machine, it’s pretty unnerving moving stuff from machine A to machine B.
So, I thought of giving the precompiled binaries a try.
I got the package, untarred it… so now what? I can’t seem to wrap my head around QNX directory structures and how the system works in general.
Maybe someone could find the time to give me a quick walkthrough on how to get the network stack working, or at least point me in the right direction? The documentation on foundry27 seems to be targeted at developers. However, I don’t have the skills to take a quick look at the failing source part and fix it myself.
I don’t mean to sound ignorant because I’m asking for help as soon as there’s some unexpected things happening (I’m used to that, I came to QNX from *BSD), I really want to get it working, and I am stuck.
Thanks for your time.
