Help!! simple bootable cd problem

Postby ranzhang » Fri Sep 21, 2007 2:16 pm

I burned a CD using the build file below, it is bootable, but for some reason, the directory (/fs) I put on the CD in addition to the image file isn't displayed when i boot on the Cd, all i can see are /dev, /usr, i dont see /fs, if i view this CD on window machine, i see the image file along with /fs, what's going on??

[virtual="x86,bios +compress"] .bootstrap = {
PATH=/proc/boot procnto
[+script] .script = {
devc-con -e &
devb-eide &
reopen /dev/con1
[+session] PATH=/proc/boot esh

[type=link] /usr/lib/

This is just a guess, but if you use the QNX hosted version, you will see that /fs has links to disks other than your boot disk. I don't know how it gets there, but possibly proc creates it. So there may be a namespace override that's hiding your CD /fs directory. If this is the case, there probably is a way to turn it off, or change it.
