Creating a new QNX System Builder project for an OS image

To create a new QNX System Builder Project:
  1. From the main menu, select File > New > Project.
  2. Expand QNX, and then select QNX System Builder Project. Click Next.
  3. Name your project, and then click Next.
  4. At this point, you can either import an existing buildfile (as shipped with your QNX BSPs) or select a generic type (e.g. ppcbe).
    Note: We recommend that you select Import Existing Buildfile, rather than a generic option. Creating a buildfile requires a working knowledge of boot script grammar (as described in the entry for mkifs in the Utility Reference and in the Building Embedded Systems manual).

  5. Click the Browse… button to select an existing buildfile. Refer to your BSP docs for the proper .build file for your board. You can find buildfiles for all the BSPs installed on your system in $QNX_TARGET/processor/boot/build/ on your host.
  6. If you're creating a generic buildfile, select your desired platform from the dropdown list.
  7. Click Finish. The IDE creates your new project, which includes all the components that make up the OS image.
