mkifs with QNX6.4.1

Postby cciarleg » Sun Apr 10, 2011 2:52 am

Hi,

So as the umpteenth method to try and get a bootable usb for my pc104 board, I am trying

http://www.qnx.com/support/knowledgebas ... 000000Smi2

when I type in mkifs bios.build bios.ifs

I get

Unable to open 'bios.ifs': No such file or directory

According to how the command works, this should be fine. Or can I not do this when I am running on a QNX CD?

Thanks.

Mario,

You can run it like this:

# mkifs bios.build bios.ifs

at least for QNX 6.3.2 and QNX 6.5 you can.

Well if you are running from the CD, it won't work for the obvious reason. I think if you plug in a USB and it appears, say /fs/usb0, then you could redirect the output to that device

mkifs bios.build /fs/usb0/bios.ifs
