A few questions about neutrino
10/03/2017 10:46
Last time I tried QNX was one of the floppy installs 3 years ago so Ifigured I would go and try out the ISO. So I tried it out and loaded up myLinux partition and used gnu parted to shrink my windows partition on themachine to leave about 1 gig to try out QNX. The install went verysmoothly and I barely noticed it was done because it went right to photon. Anyway, a have a few questions somebody could possibly answer.

There are a few things I would like to do which I am not sure how it isdone in QNX. First I would like to know if there is a tool to create anunprivileged user (I.E non-root). Secondly I was wondering if there is acommand like chsh to change the default shell. The other thing I wanted to ask about is memory usage. It seems that onthis machine which only has 56MB of RAM after loading up photon and thepackage manager it will give errors that it cannot allocate any morememory while trying to install a package. The memory usage display on theshelf indeed shows that it fills up. Is there anything I can do about thisother than dropping out of photon or opening up a terminal and installingthe packages on the commandline? Does QNX support swap partitions perhaps?If it does would it be possible to use my linux swap partition or does QNXuse its own format (or a file within the filesystem like windows) Thats about it. Hope somebody can shed some light on some of thesequestions :) Joshua
