Note: The flash filesystem library is included in the separately available Flash Filesystem & Embedding Technology Development Kit (TDK).



Each BSP guide contains board-specific information and instructions on building an OS image for that particular board.

The procedure for building BSPs has changed since QNX Momentics 6.2.1. For instance, you must now run the . ./setenv.sh script before compiling your BSP source. For details, see the chapter “Working with a BSP” in the Building Embedded Systems manual (in the Documentation Roadmap page under the QNX Neutrino RTOS section).

Location of source and documentation

When you install BSPs, you'll find the source code in $QNX_TARGET\usr\src\archives\qnx\ on Windows, and in $QNX_TARGET/usr/src/archives/qnx/ on QNX Neutrino and Linux.

You can read the documentation (including release notes) in the Integrated Development Environment's help system on all host OSs; on self-hosted QNX Neutrino systems, you can also read it in the Photon helpviewer, or you can use a web browser to display:


This “roadmap” page contains links to the various HTML booksets that accompany the OS (e.g. System Architecture, QNX Neutrino Programmer's Guide, Library Reference, Utilities Reference, etc.).
