1600x1200 DVI-D video card

Postby vhmartin » Thu Sep 21, 2006 2:46 pm

Does anyone know of a PCI video card capable of 1600x1200 DIGITAL output that QNX supports??
We are beginning a rather large developement project and I was trying to upgrade my developers systems to take advantage of 1600x1200 flat panel displays.
What are you guys using for developement platforms???
1280x1024 really is not enough for the "overhead" of the IDE screens, and I hate analog displays (spoiled).

I haven't seen a Video card, Analog or Digital that didn't support 1600x1200 in a long time.
Is the problem finding a Flat Panel that does? I don't think there are any 17" ones that do, and most 19" screens don't either.

For development I get rid of all these issues by working from aWindows
stations and using Phindows. At the moment I'm using 3 monitors, one is a
LCD that I use in portrait mode, awesome for editing code.

The problem is not finding a video card that supports 1600x1200 it is finding a video card with 1600x1200 digital AND that QNX has drivers for !

Mario,

Thanks for the suggestion, I will experiment with this.
Can you span windows "desktops" with phindows?
What editor are you using?
Do you "use" the IDE or edit code with a seperate editor and compile manually?
We are just beginning the port of a large project (>200,000 lines of code) and I am trying to set up "best practice" mode for my developers. I am not thrilled with the IDE. For all of vedit's problems in QNX 4.25 - it still was pretty good for editing code where the number of modules is large (we have probably 50 source and header files compiled to 10 processes all utilizing a common shared memory "module").
Any feedback would be appreciated.

I would think any 9xxx ATI radeon should support that and they should be
supported by QNX.

Mario,

Can you span windows "desktops" with phindows?

Don't understand the question. I have a 3 monitor setup under windows and I
can make the phindows windows fill a 3 monitor if that is what you are
askin. But I prefer to have multiple phindows session running on each
monitor.

What editor are you using?

I was using workspace, but I'm getting the hang of Eclipse/CDT. Note that
I'm NOT using the QNX release but rather the lastest version of Eclipse and
CDT which I installed under Windows. The QNX machine runs samba so we edit
the file directly on the windows box. That means Eclipse is just use as an
editor. I run make from the phindows. It's possible to have Eclipse
remotely compile on the QNX box from within Eclipse, but it's ugly.

Problem with Phindows is that Eclipse doesn't run properly (Phindows always
seems like it's an half baked solution) because of graphics corruption
issue.

Running Eclipse on QNX is a no-no anyway (Phindows or not). It's MUCH slower
then it's windows counterpart and it seems to have more bugs.

Do you "use" the IDE or edit code with a seperate editor and
compile manually?
We are just beginning the port of a large project (>200,000 lines
of code) and I am trying to set up "best practice" mode for
my developers. I am not thrilled with the IDE. For all of vedit's
problems in QNX 4.25 - it still was pretty good for editing code
where the number of modules is large (we have probably 50 source and
header files compiled to 10 processes all utilizing a common shared
memory "module").

The projetct I'm working on has 3600 files, a total 1.5 million lines of
code. Eclipse is kind of ok with that as long as you work with Working Set
(otherwise it can slow to a crawl). Note that my problem is that I cannot
turn every Makefile (250 of them) into managed Makefile they have to stay
standard makefile and Eclipse isn't at its best.

The advantage the latest Eclipse and the CDT are free. Plus you can add a
bunch of plug-in. I love the multi-clipboard plug-in, great for vedit user.

Any feedback would be appreciated.

I'm still struggeling with this myself ;-) So far this is were I'm at. In
the short term my major complain is that the CDT isn't really stable,
sometimes hover and autocomplete works, sometimes it doesn't.

One other solution which works nice is to use Visual C++ Express (which is
free). The reason why we are using Eclipse/CDT as oppose to getting a full
feature editor such as CodeView or Visual C++ Express, is that we beleive
that in 1 or 2 release Eclipse/CDT will be more stable and polished, so we
are getting our people ready. And when we do go an buy the PE version of
Momentic they will have a head start using all the QNX specific plugin.

We just recently uploaded our SNAP Graphics build for QNX 6.3. The SNAP
Radeon chipset drivers have native panel support which can handle any
mode which the panel reports in its DDC EDID. Seen tested 1600x1200 on
Samsung panel, and 1680x1050 on EIZO panels.

http://www.scitechsoft.com/ftp/snap/qnx6/

Seeing that this is a development question, you might want to know that
we developed the Photon driver for SNAP using OpenWatcom remote
debugging. We only needed to port the TCP/IP trap server program to
Neutrino 6.3 in order to be present on the QNX target system. This
enabled remote debugging of QNX GCC 3.x generated code on either Linux
or Windows hosts.

Since this was a recent addition, the QNX mods are only in the OW daily
development snapshot and OW 1.6 RC1. However the TCP server source has
been made available as an update patch to OW 1.5 here:

Does it work on top of Photon ?

Yes, there is a Photon driver included in the distribution,
devg-snap.so, which is one of the installer prompts.
