QNX6 Framebuffer Console Support?
01/09/2018 10:46
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.
