QNX image for VmWare on Windows host

Post by BERO_ » Mon Dec 04, 2006 10:47 pm

Hi

I try to set up a QNX image with Momentics System Builder for VmWare
(Windows Host).

What I have so far:
I have made an IFS image with all the stuff I need, called .altboot. I
copy this to an existing and working VmWare image of QNX. Then I
restart, press ESC to boot from altboot and my image is loaded.

So far, so good.
However I have two problems:

1) Ethernet does not work, even if everything looks good to me. I
start "io-net -dlance -ptcpip" however I am not sure if the
lance driver is correct.

Output from ifconfig:
# ifconfig
lo0: flags=8009<UP,LOOPBACK,MULTICAST> mtu 33212
capabilities=7<IP4CSUM,TCP4CSUM,UDP4CSUM>
enabled=0<>
inet 127.0.0.1 netmask 0xff000000
en0: flags=8c43<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,OACTIVE,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST>
mtu 1500
address: 00:0c:29:49:f0:45
inet 192.168.44.131 netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast
192.168.44.255


2) I have not found information, how I can use an EFS image with
VmWare. On our 'real' targets we have flash memory to store the EFS,
but how can it work on VmWare?

PS. I have to say, that I am quite a newbie to QNX ;.)

I have solved the problem with Ethernet now! But I still have no clue
if/how I can use an EFS image in VmWare.

With the Flash TDK we include devf-ram which will allow you to simulate
a flash filesystem in memory. This could be used in a virtual machine.

http://www.qnx.com/developers/docs/6.3. ... f-ram.html

Apart from that you need an actual flash part, which VmWare will not
emulate.
