QNX does not boot if Graphics card is removed
20/11/2018 10:46
Hello, I have 6.2.1 PE running of a x86 based SBC - I had to plugin a PMC VideoCard to install QNX. Now that the ethernet and serial are working - I madechanges to the startup script so that I can login over the serial terminaland/or through telnet or FTP.

Basically I do not need the Video card (and kbd/mouse) anymore - if I removethe Video Card the boot does not complete (I have set the BIOS I/Oredirection to Serial as Always). When I removed this PMC Video Card - I getthe messageBoot Partition 1 ? 1Hit Esc for .altboot ................................and the booting process stops.

Once I get the SBC to boot without the PMC Video Card - my next step will beto build an image that uses only Serial Port Console.

Is crttrap clear the way to start? Any comments or questions - please let me know.

crttrap(and the file it generates) is only required if you start a graphic driver which, I assume, you are not doing.

It sounds like you should build a custom boot. However, you may get success just by touch'ing /etc/system/config/nophoton Evan
