mount -p problems.

Post by Roger Montgomery » Sat Dec 06, 2003 8:01 pm

I am using 4.24. I added a new hard drive to my laptop, from 6GB to 30GB.

Configured QNX for the first 700 MB, then Windows98 for 500 MB, then
WindowsXP for the balance. Windows recognized the 30GB and used it.

QNX then died when the mount command within the boot image issued: mount -p
/dev/hd0t77 /

I did this manually to verify the failure of mount -p. Mount -p complains
that a partition is too large to fit on the hard drive and incredibly dies
instead of ignoring the "too big" partition that is not a QNX partition.

Is there source code for mount?

Or, how can I force the boot process to execute another command ahead of
mount -p so that I can patch the partition table so mount -p will be happy?

I wrote a patching program, called it QnxBootable and inserted it just ahead
of mount -p. But I do not know how to ensure that it executes before
mount -p.

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. For now I have relegated XP to
the max allowed by QNX, use an extended XP partition, and have to delete it
every time I switch to QNX, and reinstall it when I go back to XP.

Thanks,

Roger

Is yours "big" hard disk is EIDE? You need to use last Fsys.eide driver
which support "big"
hard disk ( from Apr 2002 ). No QNX4.25 path J is available.
