BSP whereabouts?

Post by Richard Bonomo,6289 Chamb » Wed Nov 13, 2002 3:03 am

Hello! I installed QNX 6.2 (Momentics professional edition) not
long ago, and I have been trying to navigate through the source
tree. The documentation indicates that there should be point
where the descending tree splits in three branches: ipl, startup, and
one other. I have been trying to find this "branchpoint" for
x86. I have found what appears to be the source file set for
the starup code, but I do not the the IPL nor the other branch. This
leads me to wonder if I REALLY have the entire BSP source set for
x86 loaded. How can I tell? Does anyone know why the source tree
does have a structure matching that described in the documentation
(as Neutrinno 1 did)? Also, can anyone tell me where to find the
source for the loader whihc dinit loads onto the QNX partition?
Thanks!

The loader source (ipl) will be include in the next release...packaging

For the moment you can ask your sale rep. for them...

Dear Laveau:

Oops! It looks like they are not ready to ship this now,
even via the sales rep.
I am also told that the IPL really does nothing more than
load the OS image in this case -- no extensive checking. Perhaps
the fellow who suggested I examine the IPL was either thinking
of the MBR loader, or the startup code (not IPL)?
