Hi all, I start a pthread then I have a main loop inside my main process. From the main loop, I would like to pause the execution of the thread then resume it later. I've try using pthread_kill(thread,SIGSTOP) then later pthread_kill(thread, SIGCONT) but not only the thread stop. The hole process does and that's not what I'm looking for. I only want to pause a given thread. Is it possible? How can I do that without adding pthread code inside the thread function? I've read that SI.... read more

Hi, I want to get the width and height of the current terminal.
What do i have to do, getting the $LINES and $COLUMNS variables in a terminal to run?My favorite shell is 'sh', and the help-system of Neutrino says that they should exist.
Under Linux I would use something like that: #> stty size 2>/dev/null|(read L C;echo LINES=${L:-24} COLUMNS=${C:-80})But on Neutrino the 'stty' has no 'size' option.
Regards,Marc

Does QNX6 support anything like Linux's Framebuffer Console? The problem isI need more screen real-estate in a standard console (not a pterm). 80x25just doesn't cut it. Reason: We are using Ncurses and would like to usesome text based widgets (buttonboxes, etc.) I know QNX4 allowed you to change the font, but it looked terrible. UnlessQNX6 does things differently (i.e. decent looking font at 160x50), this isnot a viable option.
Thanks in advance.

Hi all, I've always *liked* QNX, as an escape from the bloated and slow clunkyplatforms that I typically have to deal with.
I have QNX 6.2 Non-commercial on a box at home, and I'd like to build a couple more, primarily as light browser/ICA clients. I'm finding that theio-graphics subsystem is burning my CPU time and video update is very slow.
I've tried an nVidia card in VESA mode (very bad) and I'm currently usingan S3 card in native mode (slow). What is the ideal choice o.... read more

Hello all, I just want to know whether i understand Priority Inheritance correctlyin QNX...
Let's say i'll have two threads T_high (priority = 255, RR) and T_low(priority =1, FIFO).
Both share a Mutex --> Mx T_low has acquired the Mx and now T_High is Ready and tries to takeMx....(and blocks) Now.....
Priority = 255; And since T_Low is FIFO scheduled it will block all other threads atpriority 255 !!! is it Priority Inversion at its best!!! Way out: Never have a low priority thread .... read more

Hello from Gregg C LevineHas anyone managed to get working a reliable SSH server for QNX? I am planning on making available to selected customers a QNX system to see for themselves the, ah, ease of use of QNX, but I need an SSH server to provide some level of security between them, and us. Also a complete VNC server would also be greatly appreciated.
