I have a strange problem.
I have VMWare player 5.0.2. In this I’ve installed a QNX virtual machine (QNX 6.3, SP3 - Full Momentics development suite). QNX installed just fine and I have network access etc and Photon is running in 1280x1024, 32 bit color mode and I can select various resolutions.
However, it seems HTML isn’t working. For example I click on the Helpviewer in Photon and it starts up. But the main page where you view the text is blank (just shows the last thing displayed on the Photon desktop). The left hand side (topics, find area) all work fine. But no matter what I do the main view area doesn’t change. I tried starting the basic Voyager browser and going to google.com. I see it retrieve the data bytes but nothing ever gets displayed in the browser window. However other Photon apps (the games, calculator, file manager etc) all work fine. Is there some driver I need to download that I haven’t got or some setting that’s different in VMWare than in a normal install (The video driver in use is one called vmware)?
I found the above while trying to run qnxinstall (the old package installer) to install some 3rd party software (jed, ssh, tcpdump, samba etc). I’ve gotten the 3rd party cd .iso mounted in VMware and I can see it in /fs/cd0 as it shows a repository directory full of packages. But when I try to run qnxinstall as ‘qnxinstall -r /fs/cd0/repository’ nothing happens. By that I mean qnxinstall starts but I never see anything shown in photon (I am guessing it’s HTML based too) so I can’t install anything. Is this the only way I can install packages in 6.3 or is there another way I can do it.
