Documentation



Note:

Each BSP guide contains board-specific information and instructions on building an OS image for that particular board.

The procedure for building BSPs has changed since QNX Momentics 6.2.1. For instance, you must now run the . ./setenv.sh script before compiling your BSP source. If you fail to run this shell script prior to building the BSP, you can overwrite existing binaries or libs that are installed in $QNX_TARGET. For details, see the chapter "Working with a BSP" in the Building Embedded Systems manual (in the Documentation Roadmap page under the QNX Neutrino RTOS section).
