This chapter includes the following:
|If you've already installed an evaluation version of QNX SDP 6.5.0, and you've purchased and received a commercial QNX license, please go to “Commercializing your evaluation software,” below.|
|Processor||Pentium III, 700 MHz||Pentium 4, 2 GHz or more|
|RAM||256 MB||512 MB|
|Disk space||2.2 GB||2.2 GB|
The System Profiler in the IDE requires a minimum color depth of 16 bits.
To install QNX SDP 6.5.0, do the following:
If you use sudo (as would be the case on Ubuntu), specify the -E option to preserve the environment. For example:
sudo -E path_to_installer/qnxsdp-6.5.0-20081234567-linux.bin
|If your system won't let you execute from a DVD, unmount the DVD and remount it by hand.|
The installer will also ask if you wish to install a package of GNU Public License programs, such as tar and sed. We recommend that you do so for development machines.
If QNX Software Systems has a contract with you to support server-based licenses, you have a special license key that tells the software to enforce these licenses. In this case, the installer presents a panel where you can specify the hostname or IP address of the server, and the port on which the server is listening for connections. If you're using the default port, you can leave the port blank.
| The installer launches a web browser at the end of the
installation to display
a landing page on the QNX website.
On some versions of Linux, the installer might not be able to
launch the browser.
Workaround: Launch a web browser and go to http://www.qnx.com/650foryou.
The QNX Momentics Tool Suite and certain related products require activation. If you don't activate the product within the specified timeframe, the product will cease to function until you activate it. No personal data is transferred during the activation process.
If your development host is connected to the Internet, you can activate QNX SDP automatically.
If your machine isn't connected to the Internet, you must activate your software manually from a machine that is, by doing the following:
The Manual Activation dialog appears with an activate-prompt key. This dialog has a button that you can use to save the activate-prompt key in a file, /etc/qnx/license/activate_prompt_key.txt. This can eliminate the need to retype the key, which can be error-prone.
If you choose not to activate at the time of installation, you can activate later by entering the following at a terminal prompt:
If you installed an evaluation copy of QNX SDP 6.5.0, and you've now received a commercial QNX license, do the following to add your commercial license:
where base_directory is where you installed QNX SDP (see “Determining your base directory,” below).
|You should uninstall QNX products in the reverse order in which you
To determine this order, use a command like this:
ls -lt `find base_directory -name "*uninstall*.bin"`
where base_directory is where you installed the QNX Software Development Platform.
To uninstall QNX SDP, do the following:
sudo -E base_dir/_uninstall/qnxsdp/6.5.0/uninstaller.bin
|If the uninstaller doesn't fully remove all the components, you can use the QNXLinuxCleanup utility to clean up your machine. You can find this utility and documentation for it in the Utilities directory on the DVD, or on our website.|
To determine the base directory for QNX SDP, open a command shell and use the qconfig command. For example:
$ qconfig QNX Installations Installation Name: QNX Software Development Platform 6.5.0 Version: 6.5.0 Base Directory: /opt/qnx650/ QNX_HOST: /opt/qnx650/host/linux/x86/ QNX_TARGET: /opt/qnx650/target/qnx6/
The base directory in this example is /opt/qnx650/, but it could be different on your machine, depending on where you installed QNX SDP.
