M-systems mModule (doc) on x86 SBC

Postby Nick O » Thu Jan 25, 2007 5:58 pm

We are currently using a PC type SBC which has a M-Systems mModule (formally
Disc-on-chip) device which I think is on the ISA bus. This is normally
booted by the PC BIOS. I would like to place the QNX image onto this device
instead of an IDE disk. However I can't access it from QNX. I need to be
able to fdisk and copy the image to it. does anyone know what drivers may
be needed or what the device may be called?
Thanks,
Nick O

M-system used to provide a driver. Don't know what is the current status
though.

Thanks,
I eventually found it, its devb-doc which I obtained from M-Systems,
(TrueFFS5.1.4 for QNX6.x (x86)) only to find it was already in the
...QNX\x86\sbin directory on my PC!
