    I would like to propose a subject. As a QNX4 user ditto has become an invaluable tool. Not only to access console remotely but also to provide extra virtual console ( Dev.ditto ). QNX6 doesn’t provide ditto like facilities. In my current project I’m trying to use a virtual Photon session to achieve similar capabilities but it has not been an easy road. Even if I can iron out all the problems I still haven’t found a way to view the content of a console ( to see problem that might have occured at startup for example )

    How about some info on updates to the platform? QNX 6.4? A rewrite, QNX8? A service pack for 6.3? Anything? What is going on up there?

    Bob, I think you are getting into political and management side of thing. I’d be very surprise if you’d get any info here.

  7. […] the way the internals of our build system works is throwing me off a little bit. This morning I had Colin come over to my cube and explain to me why I had so many “undefined references” to […]
