But it's still a port It's NIH as far as QSSL is concerned...Is fs-ext2 as extensively tested on Q6 as it is on other platforms? I'd
much rather have a "native" solution from the OS vendor rather than a port.
Can I "newfs" an fs-ext2 partition? I'm not being argumentative, I genuinely
want to know...
We provide it btw, not a 3rd party. /lib/dll/fs-ext2.so. By default
What about testing?
Perhaps I'll give it a try again...diskboot doesn't auto-mount them in /fs, but you can pass the -e option to
it so that it will. You can get the e2fsprogs package from QNX Online to
get e2fsck and friends. Although I found recently that mke2fs isn't handling
partition creation properly under QNX.
I've tried porting these things to Q6, and always ended up with grief. Something
didn't quite want to build, or there was some weird-ass dependency on some
module that had all kinds of linuxisms in it, or something else bad happened.
I'm willing to believe that things have improved significantly since then.
Yeah, mplayer actually uses SDL for output. MikeG (lestat) is keeping SDL
up and current on Photon. He just got all of it's overlay API working
properly. Poke around, there are a bunch of people with pre-built mplayer
binaries that work just great.
Excellent.Can I now rip movies off of a DVD drive under Q6?
Yes - and if you can build videoLan (something I have never tried) you should
even be play to play DVDs. I have a TV and a very nice DVD player for watching
movies, so I have never bothered to try.
Dunno; never had to make a board yet I used to use OrCad in the daysgEDA isn't too bad at all. I've entered a schematic with about 18 74-series
chips, and the process was relatively smooth. You can get the postscript
Yeah, I have used gEDA. Have they made any improvements in the PCB side of
things? One package I always liked was Eagle. In fact, last time I was
using it I actually used it under FreeBSD (linux emulation) and Windows. On
FBSD it ran faster then under Linux.
of WIN31, and I forget what its companion board layout package was...
